No repeat this season.

I guess we won't be seeing this again this year...

I took this pic last year from the stands in Valencia, Nicky was doing his victory lap after winning the title.

Nicky wins title

I was looking through my photos on photobucket and found one of my sorry ass on the same trip. Here I am hiding out from the rain in the Alhambra in Granada Spain. The rain in spain falls mainly on me

Well I'd guess they're now pouring wads of cash right into the tank now to try and sort these so let's not write him off yet. It is a bit bleak right now.

I'm not counting him out just yet, anything can happen, but it is apparent that even Rossi is stuggling against the Ducati of Stoner. It would take a lot to come back from as far behind as he is now.

Personally, I'm pulling for him, but I think the best that we can hope for is for him to get that bike sorted out and maybe make the race for the championship interesting at the end of the season by winning a few races. Maybe knock ol' Pedrosa out of contention and let Rossi and Stoner fight it out. 'Course, this is coming from the guy that is fourth to last in the pool...

It would take for the others to DNF a bunch of races before we see young Hayden winning the title this year but all I want is for him to come to grips with the bikes and be a contender again... Hell top 5 at every race would be a treat at this point!

Yep, it would be nice to at least see him in the front group fighting for at least a podium. Even if he doesn't get a top 3 finish, he could at least make it interesting. I figured Pedrosa would be on top this year since they switched to pocket sized bikes, but then Ducati goes and throws a wrench into the works.

I think that Honda did themselves in this year making that bike around Pedrosa; , yeah when his got the setup almost right, he's there fighting for a podium but he is not consistant and is the only one capable of riding that miniature lego of a bike... the other guys are all struggling in one form or another.

I am saddened by this for all of them and for us racing fans... hell, to see the Suzukis up front and doing so well but No Hondas is just sad (Pedrosa's bike doesn't count! )
