I sure hope that Nicky can buy some luck for this weekend but, Jerez has never been that good for him either so...

I've got live timing on. It just keeps getting worse for Nicky he's dead last on the timing sheets. The usual suspects Rossi, Lozenzo, & Stoner fast. Even Turdoso was pretty far down for most of the session. A couple minutes left maybe I'll watch the Kentucky Derby instead of the Kentucky Kid

I am not ready to give up on him or throw in the towel because I kinda new this was an uphill battle, more so when Dorna decided to shorten the practice times, its like they knew that would F-up Nicky or something... FOOKERS!

I agree he hasn't had enough time on the bike. When you look a Kalio on a customer Ducati makes you wonder. I'm still pulling for him he just needs to find that set-up.

I thought Stoner could ride the thing cos he just got off of a 250cc bike, hence, why Capirossi was having such a big problem with it. Then, when Melandri couldn't do it, I figured it was not like riding a big 250cc bike but since Stoner came from dirt track as well and Melandri didn't, the problem lied there.

Now... I don't know what to think but I do speculate that given Nicky's history with testing, he will not be ready to do anything this year but the next. The problem with that is that by then... it may very well be to late for him.

All I gotta say is Fook MotoGP... Boredome galore!!! Fook Lorenzo, whatta chicken shiot bastid . Nicky? WOW, does he got the Melandri Curse as well? A few more laps and Canepa would have won the bet of who was last this time around. Still, I am hoping he'll get around it by midseason... it is getting harder and harder to believe in him though.

NOW!!! if you have not watched the 250cc, I suggest you find it on the net and watch it. Do whatever you need to do to see it... YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

Here are the Rapidshare files... Don't Miss it.

I agree the 250 race was a good one. It was some close finish and lots of passes for the lead. The Motogp race was boring once Rossi got into the lead

You make it sound like it took him more than half the race to accomplish that. The race had staarted to get extremely boring once Pedrosa got away at the front and Rossi had dispense of Lorenzo & stoner, which btw... took only but a few laps (less than 5 IIRC).

Mike the scores are wrong. Lorenzo was not in the top 5, he crashed out. Your spread sheet has points given to anyone (Including me) points for picking Lorenzo.

Yeah Mike, what the hell are we paying to for??? Seating on the chase lounge all day is part of it but, Dammit man... F O C U S !!!

I really never pay any attention to the points chart though so I wouldn't know whether Evad is wrong, right, looking on the wrong race, etc, etc, etc... I am just bored!!!
