We all over Simo. He moved us in ways not many do. But I didn't know it until he was gone.

I vote 99.

If Rossi doesn't win this one I'm giving him a stern talking to when I see him at Philip Island, there's only so much ardent fanbois can stand!

1) Marquee. Don't let the smiling and infectious enthusiasm fool you, he is an assassin on the track. The best way to wrap up the title at Aragon is to win here, and the lad DOES excel at achieving his objectives.

2) Rossi. It may be for second place in the standings, but he can smell Pedro's blood in the water.

3) JLo. He can do simple math, and is resigned to fourth place in the standings. Odds are this race will eliminate even a mathematical chance at the Championship.

4) Dovi. The best way to say "where the hell is the new bike" is on the track.

5) midget man Pedro. It's for second place in the standings, but the pressure from Rossi is on. In the big bike class, his record is to fold under pressure, why change now?

" Jlo will beat Vr again "

actually he's now done it 4 times in a row, I'm totally sure VR will want to put a stop in that trend.

And DP is gonna finish higher than 5th.

Dang.. the more i think of it, the more this has hte makings of an epic race.. all aliens are highly motivated for separate reasons - as outlined above; MM chasing those 12, and still I would think wanting to show everyone but above all himself that that one loss won't happen again; JLo really, really wanting his first win this season after all that struggling; Rossi chasing his 5K and making history in front of home, as well as feeling that old days' hunger in being competitive again, and what Pecha72 said too; Pedrosa perhaps has less obvious reasons like those that separates this race, but a win wants more. And then the turnip truck could come in and shake things a little too.

I think Marquez will take it, and Rossi second with JLo third. Question is where the battle's gonna be: a big scrap for first, or the yammies for second, or between JLo, Dovi and Pedrosa for third? And I'll be in a car when it all goes down!

Here's to Super SIC's memory!

I'm going with Rossi for the win. I know it's early and a long shot. But, racing on close to his turf, he is on it, and smiling big. I really want to see this.
I'd like to see Marquez do it too, but not as much as I want to see Rossi make this one happen.
Jlo and Pedrosa? Don't care. Fight and fold.
Dovi -the-checks-in-the-mail, the 2015 will be better. Right. Talk to the hand. Five laps of rolling chicane and out the back. Finishes behind Bradl.
I'd like to see Smith and Pol find the finish line this round and do that in front of that turnip truck. I don't have much confidence this will happen though.

All that done I'd be happy with a dozen laps of hard charging racing.
