I know it won't happen but I am really hoping for an upset this year. With all the rules changing, it seems to me as though MotoGP is trying to produce a result, not let the guys race. To bad Ducati...

Can't make it on Saturday, but wouldn't mind riding this loop some time. I like heading to Anza because of that Mexican food place that sells burritos as big as a pillow.

Well if I go on this loop I'm gonna take my wife's Toyota corolla since it gets better mileage than my husky. How is it with a 5 gallon tank I'm 1-2 gallons short for a 250 mile loop.

Good info guys. Hopefully the conditions will make things more challenging but within reason. From my understanding this ride can be a little boring, so a few slow spots would be fun.
