Smile Moto GP 2013

Well this year I'm pretty excited!

Rossi back on the Yamaha.
Stoner retired
Marquez on the repsol
Spies on the Ducati
Lorenzo and pedrosa battles

So what's some of y'all's predictions this year?

Personally I'm very excited to see Marquez on the repsol Honda. I love his aggressive riding style and the fact that he does whatever it takes. Reminds me so much of Simoncelli.

What are y'all looking forward to this year in GP?

I think he will be the Bubba Stewart of road racing.

He does what it takes to win. Laying everything on the line like that kid does. There will be crashes. He is young. He def has the potential to be one of the greats in time. Just like bubba Stewart is somewhat considered in his career.

Who else starts last on the grid and wins races?

Oh, he is FAST. So is/was Bubba. I just think he will crash so much, that it will take a toll on him, and his career will be shortened.


Just my opinion.

I see and can understand where your coming from.

He does IMO have alot of learning to do but I think in time he will get it down

I'm pulling for lorenzo again this year. Lets see what happens.

I do have one question.

What happens if rossi still finishes so so this season? Or what happens if spies on the Ducati is beating him on a regular basis. Does this hurt rossi career? I think so.

Reminds me of when Roy jones jr was the best in boxing and everyone considered him a great. However once he started losing and kept coming back and losing people tend to just remember the bad instead of the good.

Hope this doesn't happen to rossi.

I think Marquez may follow the same path as Lorenzo, a lot of crashing in the first year, then settling down a bit, only time will tell... Then again, maybe he'll just come in and beat everybody...LOL!

When is Speed channel being dissolved by Fox? Is the new channel, Fox Sports 3, going to carry motorcycle races or what?

I'm excited about all the MotoGP, and really excited to watch AMA this year! Especially to see our local CMRA brethren in action!!

That's probably going to happen, sad to say. I HOPE Rossi has a little better luck on Yamaha, with the "better support" everybody talks about. Although, and I like this about Rossi, he's riding because he just loves the sport & riding! He wants to win, of course, but you can tell he just wants to have fun out there!! Should be a good year or two for him!!

As for Spies, I also hope he has a successful year(s) with Ducati!! I hated seeing our boy Collin have the year he did, especially after having a decent year prior... but then again, Collin is such a positive and upbeat guy, he's having a good time out there no matter what!!

Should be a good year!








Oh, and bring on Formula 1, too!! WOOT!!!!!

watching the spanish civil war between Ped, Jlo and MM

watching Jlo wrap up another title

watching crutchlow's progress after a stella 2012

watching Smith fail miserably on the tech3

watching Esperago on the CRT

and most of all

Lorenzo and Pedroda dominate the results. Rossi and Marquez take the headlines

Lorenzo wins championship, Ped, Rossi, Marq, Bradl, win races

Marquez crashes out Pedrosa (twice), makes up for it by also crashing Lorenzo

Pedrosa gets points on his licence for being in the way

Broken collorbone spoils chances of world championship

Marquez beats Rossi to the podium

Rossi beats up Marquez on track and mabye off it too

Find out what happens when two riders who can do no wrong clash

Rossi does well but hard to match 6 podiums, that Dovi did last year on the satalite bike. If does'nt win, PR media machine dumps Rossi in favor of Marquez.

Bradl does better than Crutchlow, battles with Rossi / Marquez for podiums/win

Spies opens another Hamburger joint, starts cattering for Colin's Boot Camp.

Stoner tweats about the really big trout he caught, slams Rossi

Bautista, Hayden, Dovi, Spies, Iannone mix it up off camera and loose time to the leaders. Still manage a podium each.

Bradley who? Goes back to Colin's boot camp for basic training

Yonny Hernandez challenges for top CRT guy, closes gap to others


Going to be a good one.
