WTF is up with Melandri. Last year I pounded my chest and told you all he and Ducati would be a good fit. Turns out I'm an idiot. Right now he is 3 seconds off the pace. That is terrible.

1. Stoner
2. Pedrosa
3. Rossi

I really do not want put Hayden in the top 5. If he disappoints me this week. I will not put him in the top 5 again!

Spoiler:
It's a good thing for Dani that the two Yammies took each other out because I think they shoulda been your P2 and P3. And poor Nicky....in that interview at the end, it sounded like his voice was wavering.....he sounded inconsolable.


Hey Admin last year @ Laguna we spiced it up with some bonus picks for the wild cards.....let's do it again....Spies, maybe Roger and who else?....???

Thanks for the heads up Greg. Same bonus points as last year. Each correct wildcard pick gets 5 bonus points.

Example:
Pick...Spies 8th position
Results.. Spies finishes in 8th position. = 5 points

In Rossi's own words. "Unfortunately I made a mistake at the first left; I arrived too fast when the tyres were still cold, I was too hard on the brakes and I lost the rear. I am sincerely sorry to Randy de Puniet and all of his team. After the crash I had a bent handlebar and no gear shifter, but despite this I was able to do the third fastest lap time, 37.1! I know I could have been faster than Pedrosa today and, although it's easy to say now, I think I could have fought with Stoner for the win."

Yeehaw in the lead. Rossi taking a dumper sucks for everyone. Stoner is back to his form. Nicky couldn't catch a break if his life depended on it.
