Looking at the past, when Nicky was on one of the best and easiest bikes to ride (yes, the RCV), he took his time to get used to the bike before he rubbed shoulders with the front runners. But, he did show improvements with each race. After that, when Dani was his partner, things started to go a bit south.
Ducati has always been eager to get Nicky into their garage. But, this time it's a much wilder beast that he has to get used to. I see him to improve with every race.

If J-Lo can be a little more inconsistent with his 'high-side' acts, we can see much more entertainment of two factory bikes slogging it out against one another.

Does any one follows 250 and 125 cc races.
Sometimes they tend to be more entertaining than the MotoGP races.

Five46: you are right, but in the last season, nicky was just not upto the mark except 1 race i think where he got a chance to be on the podium, therefore looks little dicey for him taking too may podium finisher, hope the best for him this year and he makes full use of his and the bikes potential.

lorenzo, is usually impressive , for the last season he was also titled as the rookie of the year, but one person to lookout for this season to fight with lorenzo will be Dovizioso, since he has joined Repsol Honda, i am sure he will do great, atleast better than the last season.

Motor breathing: i do follow 125 and 250 cc races too , love the way marco simoncelli and barbera fight it out, with one odd races by simon giving tough. jUst waiting for one of these men to come to Motogp.it will become more fierce

Good to know that a good amout of following is there for 125 and 250 cc .

Last year few moto gp races were a tad boring while the 250 cc one was really exciting courtesy simoncelli and barbera.

Looking forward to the following things this season

Nicky getting owned by the desmo and crashing spectacularly in 15/17 races

Dovizioso kicking some major rear, he is a guy to watch out for. I mean he wasnt even on a factory team!

Pedrosa forgetting to engage the launch control and destroying the priceless RCV



Edwards admitting "I am getting too old for this $hit!"

Vermulan kicking some major rear in the wet races and doing nothing whole year round.

Stoner showing awesome control over the ducati but in the end getting 8itch slapped by the doctor.

Toseland admitting "He is getting *used* to the bike" and every brit journo mentioning his every move.

Gibernau doing what he does best *being average

Capirossi looking around confused why did Ducati do that?

Lorenzo rocking his chupa chups and checking out chicks!

And the Doctor doing some crazy **** like overtaking at the corkscrew on leguna seca. And inverdantly winning the 09 title and testing with ferrari again!

I miss the Biaggi days :(

Hey Quickdraw, Some nice videos. Thanks.
Liked it all. Dani's wheelie is hilarious

Collin Edwards was planning to retire after 2008 season IIRC. But somehow he decided to carry on for 2009.

More than his age, Colin's words were directed towards the state of affairs motogp is in presently. Even the Doctor has expressed his concerns over it.

So recession has hit everyone. And the way things are being managed in F1 and MotoGP is haphazard. Cant really do anything about it can we?

Let them stay there, when they graduate to motogp class, they'll have no fights between them. Fierce battles are now seen only in 125s and 250s, save for Laguna Seca last year.

Edit: Remember the scenes when Marco Melandri, Randy De Puniet, et al used to scrap it out in 250s? What do they do now?

In 2007 250cc there were good fights between Lorenzo and Dovi. The new kids on the block like Casey and Dani does not want a dog fight with Rossi or any one. They just want to run away to distance and win the race. More like F1.

I think its cos of their machines that they are not able to get that fight in Motogp, but i feel now since the one tyre manufacture thing is on, the competition will become more exciting what say?? Cos i think lot of riders did have tyre issues in some of the race, hence they also lacked pace to keep up with the front pack.

Ofcourse, Ducati had BHP advantage over others in the last two seasons and Bridgestones were suited for majority of tracks. No one could beat stoner in a straight line.
With one tyre this season, it should be a level playing field (hopefully)
