Off Topic, but that pick is pretty cool. Notice the double knee pucks and the non-carbon brake discs. Just some of the changes for rain. Neato.

It sure does not look good for him, I think they are not telling us the whole story though, to many lies and to many mysterious illness on this kid.

I really hate it when this happens to any racer, let alone one of the good ones.

Nicky sure has his work cut out for him, if Kallio spanks him here or in the next 2 races, it could mean the end of his Ducati days, on the other hand, with Stoner out, Ducati will put a lot of pressure on the whole team to get Nicky adjusted to it in case they loose Stoner so it could be beneficial for all of us.

The only good thing he got going for him is that Brno is one of the tracks Nicky likes and can get up to speed fairly well. I didn't say Win or even Podium so... don't get your panties in a wad just yet!

Great article in latest BIKE magazine (from the UK), with Rossi giving inch by inch detail of taking a corner on his GP bike. Rossi specifically mentions the double pucks used by a lot of racers now, as the 800s corner in such a way (with all the electronic help, modern tires, etc) that the racers have their knee down for much longer on each corner. The article (the whole magazine actually) is amazing.

PS: Rossi also explains his "dangling" inside leg going into some corners. He says that real or imagined, it helps him break harder with more stability for the corner.

rOSSI HAS BEEN ABLE TO GET INTO Lorenzo's head for sure... something I thought was not going to happen as Lorenzo looked mentally strong.

Well, that is as they say... that!

Yo pops... :single flip

Bring it on baby!!!

Hey, with my bad luck, I gotta razz you guys up when I can...

Yeah, frickin Stoner is in the crapper for this year, that is going to set me back a few points later on.

Listening to Rossi speak about Lorenzo, I just love how he says his name, most people will say "Horhay" but Rossi calls him "Yorgee" and I find that amusing

You got man-love for Rossi....Duno why you didn't pick him for Champ. it's like all those homos that live and die with Favre.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Actually, that is why I had chosen Stoner over Rossi. I was going to go with Lorenzo but the man was a crasher and I fear he was not going to be ready this year either.

Choosing Rossi is a no brainer, yet, I usually go with the underdogs more so than the goat but, I had a good kick out of his interview when he said that.
