    2011 Moto GP?

    It will certainly be an interesting year.

    These are just my personal thoughts on it and if I'm wrong feel free to pull it back from the dead end season but I want to hear what everyone else thinks too.

    One year from the 1000cc change can mean the teams can all go in different directions.

    Vale: Moves to Ducati to team with finishes 4th-6th Haden. No pressure from a team rivalry but on a tempermental bike that can win but likes to go down a lot.

    Haden: See Above.

    Lorenzo: I don't see why he couldn't win but something about him,... I never liked and don't think he is a dynasty. Maybe this year but not 2012+

    Spies: Keeping in tune with not liking Lorenzo so much, I would love to see Ben score more points for Yamaha than Horge but his odds of being top three are stacked against him. Podiums yes but to win it, longshot of the season.

    Casey Danny Dovi: I expect the most drama perhaps ever from this team given the combination of talent (what would the team order be here exactly?)and the fact that Honda is on it's game easily fielding a winning bike/rider combination each race.

    As for the rest of the field...

    Any outside shots to join the top 3 or top 5?

    Thanks tips.

    Besides your typical strawman GTAM argument do you have any pics for the season?

    Any contribution to a motorcycle thread on a motorcycle forum?

    Since you can dismiss my opinion as stated with yours you should be able to call the entire season.

    Or do you not know anything about it?

    I mean you must, since here you are taking a dump in it.

    I think Stoner or Pedrosa probably are going to be fighting for the top all season with a few wins from Yamaha and Ducati.

    I think Rossi will come on strong later in the season but still place top 5 for most races. Spies will be top 5 as well as Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Dovitsioso, but it's hard to say who will win because each one has their tracks where they have that extra speed. If stoner doesn't crash his bike......he'll be upfront as well.

    Rossi will come out of the gate with a top three finish in the first race and never look back.
    Hayden will be depressed Rossi is so fast and start eating cheeseburgers and get fat.
    Stoner and Dani will both be very fast but hate each other and get fined for a slapping girls fight in the pit areas.
    Spies is as fast as Lorenzo, takes him out in a corner fight. The wall goes back up in the pit area, Lorenzo hits on Spies mom.

    the season as I see it.

    - Motorcycles are cool! My buddy has a really fast one.

    - What kind is it?

    - It's one of those really fast ones with all the plastic. I think it's like an R6 or somthing.

    - ..........cool

    Stoner is fast and seems to qualify well, he just seems to have a hard time finishing a race, wether it's due to pushing too hard and over riding the bike or another issue this year should clear up a few things. Btw if it really was the bike how come Hayden managed to finish the race while stoner was making sand casltes?

    Cant EVER rule Rossi out. He was never suppose to win on the lazy Yamaha but he took the championship in year one. Nobody but Stoner is suppose to be able to ride the Duc....... Rossi is motovated and will be getting mucho attention being Italian. Woudlnt surprise me to see him do very well.
    Jorje is always strong and will be again. Pedrosa will have a bone to pic with HRC and will be riding possesed (although I cant freakin stand him). Dont forget Divioso (sp) if he can stay on the bike. Stoner is a wildcard depending on if he can ovcercome his illness/depression issues. Spies will do well and surprise everyone. Doubt he will be a championship contender but he will place well.

    Eugene Laverty will be the one to watch in wsbk, he will bring some life back to the series, by far the quickest rider in wss last year.

    I think Stoner will come out on top this year. Jorge and Dani will give him a run for his money, but Stoner will come out on top. 2012 will be Rossi's year.

    Some torrents are up on Racing underground but not really worth the download. Basically videos of the boys leaving and coming back into the pits..

    Nothing too entertaining but then again it's just test day footage.

    If anyone wants an invite to RU that isn't on there here is one I have.

    This season will be interesting to see how all the riders with new teams will perform. But 2012 will be even more interesting to see everyone start from scratch on a 1000cc bike. If BMW came into the game for 2012 that would be interesting to see how they would do and who would be riding for them.

    I am predicting the following for 2011:
    1) Lorenzo
    2) Pedrosa
    3) Stoner

    Man those Honda's are dominating!
    Like I said earlier, if Honda can't build a wining bike....it looks like it all comes down to their riders performance and fitness.
    FP3 and Repsol Honda has the lockdown on the top 3 spots and track time.
    I just hope Ducati and Yamaha and the others can compete, as I personally love to see good battles and a tight championship.
    I await the European circuit's results....

    Anyway excited for qualifying and of course the race this Sunday!

    I'm really liking Pedrosa this season. And I think if anyone can give the Repsols a run this season might be Spies??
