With all the greatest respect to them, who are? -
9 CARDONA VAGNONI Nicolas Alberto - PEDREGA TEAM Vénézuelienne Moto YAMAHA 450 CC
10 VOGELS Hans - STICHTING MOTORSPORT Néerlandaise Moto KTM 450 CC
Sacrificial reiders to lead out 1 and 2 tomorrow, which means that after 30 mins or so Bottori may be navigating with Faria on his exhaust soon to be followed by Helder, Sam and the others!
If they can't or don't (someone will have to) take the initiative at the front, the top 10 will close up and with JB and KC some mins behind they will take the day 1st and 2nd and will have 10 mins and more on the rest of the field
- just saying
"cannon fodder" does seem to fit the bill... given the "reverse order" top 10 start rule... I don't recall seeing either of their names in the top 20 of an FIM event the last couple of years?
