Just renewed Motogp.com subscription, can't wait for testing to begin. I hold high expectations for Rossi, my money is on him getting in top 3 right away. We'll see.

IIRC this contract was set in stone a good while back and it contains some explicit remedies for breach that are not favorable to Poncheral.

Presumably the British flag and Ezpeleta are also involved.

Maybe I'm interpreting this photo wrong, but Dovi's smile looks a little forced.

Looks like a "christ did I really sign up to ride this thing" smile.

It looks more like a "I just farted" face.

Poncheral has admitted to being an Anglophile. And that it does influence his choices of rider.

Don't know what to expect, but I would sure think he'd be more motivated now than in many years. It'll be interesting for sure.

Yeah, me too. The thing that makes me wonder is the recent performances, especially in the wet.. Hope he was just hustling a bit

It's fun watching Dovi figure things out.

And it is raining @ Valencia.

I think the MotoGP circus should have a couple races per season in the Sahara, who knows they just might be able to turn some of those desert areas fertile again....

Rossi looks more comfortable in his first laps than in '10, and it was dry then.

It'll be drowned out by the whining about Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Marquez.
