When you think about it he's been on a factory bike for7 seasons now.
How many CHAMPIONSHIPS has he won?

Pedrosa may have been fastest on day three of the test, but Jorge was fastest overall. VR 46 was only 5th fastest, behind Crutchlow.

It is only testing, though. Some riders went for fast times at the end. Some did not.

And read Krop's roundups for the other two days if you want some real insight on the testing.

I will fall back on Lurky-Loos post for the answer to that one.

It's looking probable Rossi will win again, but it's still hypothetical.
I just hope Pedrosa can get through another entire season without breaking a shoulder so we can all see what he can do in 2013.

I'm pretty sure you guys voted G Doubleyuh in twice. ;)

From what I recall, correct me if I'm wrong, but Rossi was never the fastest when it came to testing. Even in his prime.

Just when you think it can't get much worse......

The MotoGP site reports that Spies had a fall on Wednesday and slightly(?) re-injured his shoulder.

NUTS!

Spies said the crash caused him some muscle spasms etc... but he didn't elude to it being serious.

I think Spies is done, he's on the downhill backside of his MotoGP career.


(I hope he proves me wrong though...)
