Where is everyone? Did ya see how well Ben Spies is doing? Can't wait to see him in there full time.

ok, my picks

1. Stoner
2. Rossi
3. Hayden
4. Edwards
5. Dovizioso



This one is tough. I think its going to be dry which means I should put Pedrosa up top but he has a 3rd row start. I want to see Spies kick ass and have a funny feeling he will. Hayden is showing some life but will he push too hard to get on the box and crash out?

Ugh!!!! May change them later.

I am withca Evad, I have the feeling that it will dry up by race time and everything will change dramatically for everyone. Stoner & Rossi are the only 2 that will be there rain or shine but the others will play a spoiler role... Arrgghhh!!!

Stoner
Rossi
Hayden
Vermulen
Edwards

Spoiler:
I am glad that Stoner is back on form but I wish that they would stop this BS about one of them being in top form at each race, hit the setup and run away with the show. I would love nothing more than to see a dog fight between the top 5 each and every race but... I guess we are doomed to see this kind of show every race from now on.

Glad to see Spies doing the biz, to finish here was a good thing for him and for America. Dovizioso sure could use a better bike (Nicky's perhaps?), Pedrosa had a hard time dispatching him but Donnington is a hard track to pass. Call it what you will but Nicky can't buy luck with all that mony his got. This morning (alledgedly) they had a problem with his #1 bike and he had to use the #2 (conspiracy theories anyone?). I was just as upset as you are when the announcers said that just before the race , still, at the very least he was pushing and fighting instead of just coasting along to finish. what the hell happened to Edwards as well?

Now, on the rumor mill, there seem to be strong rumors that Nicky has already signed with Ducati, everyone is talking about it and they said it a couple of times in the pre-race show and I have also heard it from another sources. Ok, if that was true would Honda be giving him the neumatic engine before turdosa has a chance to say that it is to agreesive for his style of racing, it would be very far fetch, right?

If he indeed has already sign with Ducati, as a Honda fan, I am the first one to be sad by this but I would be so glad for him since Honda has kicked him to the curve since he showed promises that he could ride at front in 2006.

I also hope for Melandri's sake that he can come to an amicable ending with Ducati and find him on a Honda so he can be at the top again

Thanks for the head up Dave. Somehow the automatic formula was corrupt. Fixed...
L6 = IF(B6=G6,10,0)+IF(C6=H6,8,0)+IF(D6=I6,6,0)+IF(E6=J 6,4,0)+IF(F6=K6,2,0). F6 was showing E6
