About as much as 5 hour energy.
I thought someone might be interested in it.
Sorry, I'll keep it all MotoGP in here.

Pssst. It's the "off season". Wink wink.

Yeah but now rumors can run rampant and not be substantiated for weeks on end.

I disagree it has everything to do with MotoGP. It seems like 1/3 of the money or more in MotoGP is from energy drinks.

I watched "No Ordinary Joe" last night
You'll need an interpreter sometimes and wish it had subtitles as that's one strong accent and had to rewind a few times.
I've got a hacked AppleTV and trying to find the live Eurosports channels

Interesting to see how couple of rookies will adapt. Firstly, Marquez will be awesome at some point, but might suffer early on. In Moto2, he used to test Suter bike privately time and time again. Probably did more laps than any other rider in the class. Now MotoGP tests are limited and he need to learn new powerful bike, complicated electronics and weird Bridgestones. And set them up too. Granted he has professional team and staff behind him but he is facing experienced riders with many years on the bikes and tires.

Iannone is the Ducati rider to watch. Might be the surprise of the season. He doesn't have knowledge how to ride Japanese MotoGP bikes, therefore he doesn't have to de-learn his old habits and can get to the point with Ducati and adjust to bike's style.

Last chance for Pedrosa to win the title? 2014 onwards Marquez can be hard to beat, at least on the same bike

Oh and as talked about before, Nicky is the kind of sports hero the kids should be looking up to, not gun toting thugs hanging wit da bitches in clubs everywhere always in trouble.

The link I followed from that post was about a competitor dieing at the Macau GP. What are you looking at?

My apologies, I thought you were referring to the energy drink article.

I think the times put in at the end of the day yesterday are pretty relevant. They were missing Jorge and Vale, but otherwise are interesting.
Marquez and Bautista test in Sepang at the end of the year. Dovizioso, Hayden, Iannone and Pirro test at Jerez some time next week. Yamaha aren't testing.

The miserable season Ben had coupled with Stoners retirement has left me a bit ambivalent about things right now.

I was going to say Spies is really starting off '13 in the hole, but when is the new Ducati going to be ready for testing? Maybe he's not missing much.
