Can Marquez make it 9 out of 9 in Germany?

Marquez has already won on this track last year, a second and a half ahead of Yamaha-mounted Crutchlow, and nearly ten seconds ahead of Rossi in third.

I suspect the rest of the field is not looking forward to this weekend.

Dani Pedrosa FTW. First man to beat Marquez this year. Out last year with a broken collarbone.

Made Stoner crash trying to chase him down and the same will happen with MM.

Moto3, since both Miller and Fenati gave them a huge gift last race, Honda will look to keep their mojo working.
Alex Marquez or Alex Rins? Flip a coin, I pick Marquez to make it 3 straight races where both brothers win both classes. Fenati to complete the podium.

1. Marquez, the kid is on a roll, and everybody else is standing in line for Starbucks stale pastries.
2. Pedrosa
3. Rossi
4. Bradl, finally slays his dragon and doesn't choke at the home national
5. Lorenzo begins his crawl back to confidence.
6. Aliex Espargaro.

Ducati's blow up motors, electrical gremlins rear ugly heads, Audi sells the marque to Tata, who thought they were buying scones.

Rossi, he finally gets qualifying right, he has been watching MM for a weakness and knows he can beat him, and he has the pace.

MM. Who else?

Dani. Good, but still not great from the surgery.

a great distance to

Lorenzo, who does not have his mojo back yet and will say this is the best finish of his life.

Bradl. Happy German.

Dovi. On a roll, but not that good a roll

Anyone have a link to the video of Stoner crashing the Duc in the waterfall right hander a few years back? He was hauling ass, and was leaned over so far he levered the bike off the ground with the footpeg. Bike was a yardsale, he was fine. I think it was his last year at Ducati.

My predictions to move off the Pedrosa and Hayden hate. It WAS 8 years ago! I have grown to appreciate Pedrosa in that time.

But I really want;

VR
SB
DP

MM in the top ten after crashing TWICE!


Wild prediction but I don't think MM can't keep up the perfect streak. The more he is on top the harder I think it will be for him to keep a perfect record. I think he will make a mistake during this race.

MM is on record stating that the WC is his goal while # of wins isn't a priority. I don't think there is pressure for a streak.
