Getting harder and harder to bet against Marquez as the winner, but I'm going for Rossi on the top spot of the podium this coming weekend.

Sepang is a harsh mistress, unpredictable and unforgiving.
It eats up risk takers.

I think that Marquez's reality is this - he has arrived in MotoGP to find that very few can challenge him.

Looks like the reality is that everyone else is getting bitten in the ass by a 20 year old.

MM is like a breath of fresh air- in interviews, on the podium and obviously on his bike. In contrast DP and JLo podiums look as exciting as watching paint dry.

I find it extraordinarily distasteful that you would wish misfortune on anyone.

Bookies are making a killing out of people with your optimism

Various online gambling sites are offering 18:1 on Rossi for the win at Sepang.

Best for Marquez are 6:5.


A couple of months ago I thought Rossi looked a good bet for the championship at 50:1. After Assen he shortened to 33, IIRC.

Now you can get 500:1 on Rossi for the title. And 33:1 for Pedrosa.

Pedrosa was pogo-ing a lot on the flyer -- it was a lot faster than any of his other laps and it looked like he was close to losing it. Things are still close pace-wise between 26 and 93.
