But look at the consistentcy, Haydens last lap was almost a second slower. Stoner's last lap was just .1 slower.

WTF Lorenzo??? Geebus......looks like that last blow to head soften him up a little bit. I hope he comes back to the "fire crack'n" self he was a few races ago.

I'd like to see Hayden up there(even though I'm not a fan of the man, but I enjoy seeing an American in the mix), but I think it's safe to assume another Rossi, Pedrosa and Stoner podium party.

I'm still waiting for a race long battle between the 3. Maybe Donington is the stage we've been looking for???

I'd like to see Spies pull in a decent top ten finish.......

2 seconds off the fastest lap at a track he's never ridden, on a bike that's completely different than any bike he's ridden (except for one test)....


FKN GO SPEEZ GO!

Practice times are one thing, racing is completely different...

I think Spies is going to do just fine but I wonder how it's going to feel for him to be back in the pack a bit chasing people... the only person he's chased for the past 3 years is Mladin. Granted, he and Mladin ride very hard all the time so I don't think the pace will be the difficult thing for him. I really think it's going to be track position.

If he gets a top 10 (which I think is very possible) then he should consider that a victory!

Went and watched free practice yesterday with a few buddies....

Stoner was in' awesome, he had that Ducati on the limit everywhere.
every corner, every lap was like his last.
He was trying very very hard.
And the noise that thing makes

Rossi was just Rossi,
precice, unhurried, near flawless but so deceptively fast. didn't see him miss an apex all day.
Poetry in motion
the Yamaha "sounds" the slowest thing out there

De Angelis is a motherin' MONSTER
He was brain out, full chat, leaving nobody there in any doubt about how hard he was trying. He has big big kahona's ,
two wheel drifting down Craner curves
same with Westy, maybe he's had a wakeup call but he looked pretty committed to us

Edwards looks like the real deal
just looks so much more relaxed on the bike than last year
still grinding his nads into the tank

they're all hero's and it was a fantastic spectacle once again.
regarding Spies, as we say over here,
"the boy done good"

Shame it's raining today (Sat morning), hope it drys up

That's funny, that's what we say here in Texas too...


I wish I were there! Sounds like a great venue to be a spectator.

I can't wait to get his impression of the tires as compared to the "special" Dunlops he has been on for years....lol

Qualifying top 10 is a great result so far. If he can finish there or further up, he has really opened some eyes.
