    Stoner
    Lorenzo
    Pedrosa
    Rossi

    If Rossi can get near Pedrosa he will get 3rd.

    No one can beat Stoner in Qatar and Philip Island in normal race conditions.

    What he said.

    I think Spies will be in the top 4, though.

    Besides top step of the podium for Stoner, the rest is wide open. I will be rooting for DePuniet to beat some factory bikes.

    I forsee a few dnf's, not all coming from the ranks of the CRTs.

    Stoner, Lorenzo and Li'l Pedro on the podium, who knows in what order.

    Ducati has one bike in the top ten.

    Edwards will have some funny shit to say after the race.

    QFT. If the wind blows and the track gets dirty, it will end up being similar to a rain race where things are wide open.
    Of course, the last few years, Stoner, when he's on, he is 100% on.

    Bear in mind that I would happily adopt Valentino if Graziano offered him up and so I am extremely biased but I see it:

    1. Stoner
    2. Whore-ghey
    3. Pinty McCrashesalot
    4. Spies
    5. Dovi
    6. Rossi

    Its going to be very dirty this year as there wasn't an event the week prior like last year so times will be much slower initially according to twitter..

    One of the Kawi CRT bikes vents a rod and covers the track in oil. Stoner comes though 7 seconds ahead of the field and crashes in it. Lorenzo or Spies wins. Pedro already crashed.

    Stoner Goes on the record saying the CRT bikes should not be out there.

    RDP beats a few Sat bikes.

    Can't wait for the season to start. I hope the CRT's give the sattelite bikes fits- hope it's not a boring Stoner led processional. Would like to see some Americans win this year!

    Why no votes for Cal? He's been quick.

    ?

    Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Stoner, Ben and Cal...

    He has been quick, but history tells me he'll finish 6th, or behind Rossi due to a last lap pass under braking by the saucy one..:evil
