If I had to bet money right now injury aside I'd go RV/Barcia or vice versa with the rest of them in a slugfest for 3rd week in week out. Can't imagine at this point Canard can pull it off but it would be fine with me.
I believe Dungey is a very methodical,thinking rider and I'll never count him out.He's been there every season and if not for some bike issues would have won at least one more championship.Hopefully the KTM is fully dialed this year,with Barcia in the mix it will surely be interesting.
