MotoGP: Middle of nowhere, Spain (Spoilers)
The MotoGP Circus reconvenes this weekend at Aragon, a lovely facility close to, well, not much. With 5 races to go, after the series of cock-ups at Misano that left Dani Pedrosa 38 points adrift from front-runner Jorge Lorenzo, the series, absent some unforeseen cataclysmic occurrance, looks to be largely bereft of drama. Given the lack of credible competition (Until Stoner returns, possibly at Motegi) the fight looks to be among the Spanish aliens and Lorenzo can afford to be conservative. The silly season is waning as well with the lone prototype seat not currently accounted for at Gresini Honda likely to be (re)occupied by Alvaro Bautista.
