Ouch, thats gotta hurt.


Unless its mind games again.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

Conditions were bad, damp and COLD. Looks like most of the guys doing familiarization laps on new machines didn't risk any mishaps on their new machinery.

Don't read anything into that, Dani and Marky Marq didn't even venture out it was so wet. Imagine that - being given a Repsol Honda and saying "Ta - no, I don't wanna ride today".





I predict Big Trouble from this little fcuker.

Nakamoto is looking all kinda resigned about things in general. If I were Ezzie I'd be schitting Junior Burgers. The Japanese have a habit of smiling before they chop your head off.

Yamaha packed up early to go to Aragon tomorrow. The telling sign is the smile on VR and JB's faces.

It seems Stoner is already talking smack on his future V8 supercar rivals.

At least everyone is on equal footing, as it were. Then if the track truly dried out, allow them to swap for their slicks bike when the rain tires started going off. I know you can't prepare for every weather contingency, but that race seemed needlessly risky. Hard to imagine a worse cluster-fcuk than what ensued.
Isn't that kinda exactly how Valencia went?

They need to open up the rules to allow cut slicks.

They're pushing for intermediates.
