With a 50 point lead, Rossi should not take chances.

Well its race weekend once again, this time its in the US for Indianapolis. Whats the bet. Will Rossi continue the winnig streak, will lorenzo fight back for his two DNF this year.
Always hard to bet against Rossi for a race win on any day ! However, at Indy, I just have a sneaking feeling that the Honda's may put it across !

Too late to join the thread. Rossi will definitely win the crown. He has been outstanding. I wanted Jorge to win as well. He too is a dynamic package.

Cheers!

Hmm Rossi crashed at lap 9, at Indianapolis, Pedrosa too crashed, managed to get his bike up and finish the race at top 10. Lorenzo takes the win, Alex DeAngelis 2nd, followed by Nicky Hayden and Doviziso.

So now the Gap in championship Standing down to 25 points. Next Race MISANO.

Probably Rossi should give more respect to 2nd place
I guess he is in a hurry to break Agostinis record

So, with this DNF of Vale, the championship is again open. Jorge now sniffs a 25% chance of the title.

Here's a video of the comedy of errors at Brno between Marco & Mika.

Nice video Five46 ! Still feel that The Doctor will close out the championship, and most probably with a couple of races still to go ! Rossi somehow reminds me of Kevin Schwantz with his 'all or nothing' style of riding ! Of late, he has mellowed down a bit though !

Race Sunday tomorrow, Misano is the place, a few kms away from Rossi 's hometown. He was the fastest in the First free Practice yesterday, followed by Lorenzo, Pedrosa etc. Qualifying today.

With 25 Points difference in the champion ship, all races from now on are very very crucial for both the riders.

Whats the bet guys?

Default Rossi wins Misano.

Another win for doc though a tad boring race. 250 cc race was awsome. Vales helmet design was original .

After Kalio now its De Angelis. Collin Edwards quote form BBC.

Motogp weekend again.
Round 14, Estroil, Portugal.
The countdown has begun with only 4 rounds remainin.
The title can still swing amongst the top 2.
Jorge has set the pace in FP1 followed by Dani and Vale.
Fiat Yamaha to sport special one off Grande Punto Livery on their bikes.
So much to see, sadly I can't, no TV. :-(

Somehow managed to watch it. Turned out to be the most boring race of the season. Good ride by Jorge to take the chequered and blow the championship wide open by closing the gap to just 18 points.

I agree with u on that mate, was the most boring race of the season till now, rather I would rephrase as less exciting of all the previous races.

But yesterday we got to see what difference the setting of bike can do. Also Vale who is a master of bike setup, failed, maybe due to the foggy conditions in the morning and did not anticipate sun later in the day (but I doubt thats the case).

Lorenzo was like a missile at Estoril so was Stoner.

Stoners return has changed the way these Yamaha boys used to fight and now there is a possibility of them not finishing 1-2 for the next 3 races.

Which throws the championship wide open, once again !

3 races to go and 18 points away from Rossi, very much doable I believe for Lorenzo. May be he will, with some help from Stoner and Pedrosa.

Only if the other Ducati & other Honda had faster riders, think what could had happened!
