i'm surprised to see Colin in 10th. he usually qualifies in a great spot.

GOOOOOOOO hopper.. Come on rossi, Stoner needs to sit this one out. Shinya won't last too long, Lorenzo needs to spike some vicodins.

Well I said that Bridgestone was looking to do some catching up this weekend. Looks good so far. Great track for their rubber.......

I say Stoner takes the win. With Rossi and Pedrosa duke'in it out for second.

Could we see a Hayden and Hopkins battle for fourth? Maybe even third depending on what happens between Stoner, Rossi and Pedrosa. If they can keep the pace with the three that is.......

I feel sorry for Lorenzo, but happens when your on a 200+hp motorcycle riding it like your on fire, trying to put the flames out.:/:

When are the engineers going to come up with a "high side control"? But seriously, if he decides to ride this weekend, and does well.......wow.

I got a feeling Rossi's going to have a tough time. If Pedrosa can keep the pace, you can almost be certain that he is going to give Rossi . Then theres Stoner..........

Rossi can handle it
them two are like a virus and he is......................... "the Doctor"

Qualifying should be intresting.
Who'd bet against Danny with Lorenzo injured??

I'll bet we'll see Lorenzo race.

nakano up in the top 5?

like james said, that won't last long.

as for pedrosa, don't doubt the man, he's got the motivation and talent to be the next world champ. rossi is old news, and after so many world championships, i don't think his drive for the win will be enough to match the others. although i know he is frustrated bein behind the others....he may put up a good fight. as for stoner, well....wearin the #1 plate puts a lot of weight on the shoulders....and i don't think he can handle it.

my predictions.

1. pedrosa
2. rossi
3. hayden
4. hopkins
5. stoner

Marco is great......just not for that bike.

There are some [I]real[I] inconsistancies between the two Duc factory riders, no doubt.

It's just one of those things where the bike works great with one, but not the other......:/:

There is no question Pedrosa has what it takes to go all the way this year.

Personally I think he will. I just feel that this race is a do or die for Stoner. He'll either put it on the box, or in the wall.

I wouldn't say that Rossi is old new just yet.......but there is no mistake, these new guys are making him look human.
