    Only a few more hours before they are on the track for FP1... if Marquez shoots to the top of the lap times right away that's sure gonna make all the old geezers a bit worried. :deal

    Kropotkin stirred things up in today's press conference asking why there aren't any gay Moto GP riders. :lol3 Very cleverly worded.

    Stef Bradl opined that if it would make him faster it would be worth a try. :rofl

    Hopefully David will correct how wrong I have gotten the story. But it is too funny not to tell.

    Me too. And Crutchlow is killing it. I hope they both perform well in the race.

    But what's up with Bradl? 1.5 sec back in 14th

    Given the bike he has, expectations are for him to be further up there, no?

    Promising sign that Pirro on the newer bike is so close to the factory riders????

    Was wondering about the new Ducati also. What changes have they made to the bike? I haven't heard anything...

    Glancing over the data, Lorenzo looks strong as does Rossi. Lots of 1:40's in there.

    Cal looks to be figuring it out. Marquez was getting more in a row as the session wore on.

    That analysis set of data is too much fun.

    Lorenzo does a warm up lap at nearly the same speed then a tight group of 1:40's nearly every section is the same as the last time through. Reminds me of a series of photographs of Wayne Rainey at Assen, year after year within inches of the same spot in the same corner.
    Betting against George would be a losing bet. The man has this wired.
    Rossi looks very good as well.

    As David said this is a Yamaha track. But, Pedrosa looks damned near as close as Lorenzo for consistency. I expect Marc to be there come FP4, when it counts.

    Below 4th the normal order resumes.

    Picks:
    1 Lorenzo, (this one breaks the tie)
    2. Pedrosa, (searching for that Mamola prize)
    3. Rossi, (Clawing his way back)
    4. Marquez, when he gets this figured out, color him gone. Stoner who?
    5. Crutchlow, I need a factory Honda
    6. Hayden, (here's hoping)


    Back to work.:huh

    I think Dovi said Pirro was running new frame and engine management. But really, I am not sure how much truthful details about what they are testing will be given out.

    MotoMatters has the skinny on this. The frame is adjustable for flex if I recall correctly.

    Other than that, BNG.
