I'm going to go with,
1. J Lo, he has this thing wired.
2. Pedrosa, seven dresses...
3. Rossi, everything to prove to himself. Could be close second even.
4. Marquez, youth and enthusiasm won't win the day over and age, experience and treachery.
Crutchlow, and the rest.
The Ducs will continue to orbit in tenth just ahead of the CRT's.
Sadly Colin's experiment with the Kawasaki at FTR will prove to be another building year. First year again. I have a hard time seeing CRT's as anything more than backmarkers.
I see zero point in racing a bike you absolutely know won't see the front other than when it goes past them. That holds for Ducati and Suzuki when they join in.
I do think we're in for some good racing at the front. We have four men on nearly equal machines all at or near the top of their game.
