Pedro is not an alien?? Check out any race from the later part of 2012. Lorenzo only barely beat him..guess he's not an alien either..

Pedrosa makes E.T. look like the boy next door.

This is shaping up to be an interesting year. Rossi is right on top of Lorenzo, Pedrosa is looking fast and consistent, and Marquez, wow, he really does look like he might be up there in the top group when race day comes. I'm really hoping that the Ducati's can find something, and that Spies can move back towards the front. But, over the past 3-4 years I've gone from thinking Spies is a future world champion to thinking he's reached his peak and is fading away.

Edit: and I'm looking forward to seeing this play out in real time at the Austin MotoGP!

It is going to be a blast watching Marquez beat up on some way more experienced racers this year. Good to see Rossi back up there too.

I think Marquez will shake things up this year. Even if he doesn't win, he'll be exciting to watch.

Jep, you read it right. Pedro is not an alien. Lorenzo however is.

Pedro has been on the factory honda now for a WHILE and no title, Nicky, Stoner and soon possibly MM have got a title on the honda... it can't be the bike that sucks...

How do you think MM will make Pedrosa look ?

I think Pedrosa will be wanting to "phone home" soon...

Thank you for re-defining the word Alien. We have all been using it and including Pedrosa in the term since its beginning. We all had no idea we were wrong.

But why has it taken you so long (3 sesons or more) to let us know

Oh good grief. Is this what we have denigrated to?

Pedrosa transformed himself from the scorned robot into a likeable personality, consistent contender, and podium fixture. Narry a bad word to say and the only place you look for him as at the front. What is it you expect from racers exactly?
