Video pass + iPad + AppleTV + Big Plasma screen = perfect!

I will hit the interstate Friday afternoon pointed west toward home. Hopefully this time with less drama.

I've got the "Desert 100" this weekend so I won't be able to watch any MotoGP action until Sunday night.

Should be a fun weekend capped off with some great racing over the net!

Yes ... interesting, isn't it.

Without Stoner, you'd think the stats say it all.

With Stoner, it is obvious they don't tell the whole story.

Right, it doesn't say what level of bikes they started out on, MM and CS were on different levels of sponsorship in the early stages and are both amazing talents.
Someone put together a nice graph though..

Exactly, I don't think you can count Stoner, he rode privateer 250's first and then 125's. Not at all the "normal" path for an alien.

He also didnt win on either in the 125's or 250's...not saying that wins in the smaller cc class equate to success at the top level but he still didnt see any success til he hopped on his Duc

Jorge tops it with less than a minute to go.

Yam 1-2-3 (Cal over Rossi, but by thousandths)

Marquette 1st HRC

this will be interesting

What's up with Team Honda? Are they having a problem? Or, did Yamaha make some leap forward since the last test?
