I'm excited to see how Rispoli does in Moto2.

so that means he'll finish 9th or 10th!!! AND behind Esp!!

Meanwhile, in the real world, I'd have to put my money on pedro given his past performances, but I really hope that MM and Jorge, and hell, even Rossi can stay up there and keep it from becoming a parade. and then there's Bradl, he keeps getting faster.

Wild guess or insider information?


If I were a betting man:

MM- healthy and hungry
Rossi- healthy and trying hard for another win
Lorenzo- not fully healed, still in damage control
Pedrosa- not fully healed, fragile and in damage control
Bradl- fast and trying hard
Dovi- out to prove a point
CC- no more fast bits from Yamaha
Esp- trying to make the ART an MSMA bike
Someone else

I'm not a betting man so it's anybodies guess really, I'm just hoping they all get through healthy and make a bit of a race of it.

If I were a betting man I would vote that three out of that list go down during the race.

The track is going to be hopelessly green (again) there is only the Rolex series race there (this week if I'm not mistaken) held on the infield circuit all year. Indy bites everyone, and Pedro and Jlo are already on the mend.

I want to see Lorenzo and Pedrosa complete the race weekend without crashing and reinjuring their collarbones. First wish. Second wish, some great close racing right down to the last corner, don't really care who it's between!

I'll throw a blue flag at the leaders on the last lap to see what happens.

Not only that, but the Rolex series ran the course reverse of what the bikes do so it isn't like they even laid rubber down in the correct spots to benefit the bikes.
Plus the rubber ball pit that is anything off the racing line...
Hell, Rossi went down while braking straight up and down for turn 2 in 2009...

I love the venue but the track itself tends towards races of attrition.

It will be interesting to see if any of the Ducs can hold the tight line exiting T1. Last year only DP and CS could hold the paint... Well, MM could hold it in Moto 2 as well.

Meanwhile the Ducs all ran wide, which screwed up both T2 and T3. Pretty ugly. I think Rossi ran through the grass at least once.

The Yamaha's were pretty good, but drifted a few feet towards the middle...

Believe it or not, the Harley XR class is pretty fun to watch at Indy. Their lines all criss cross and sometimes they meet

I read Jeremy McWilliams will be back. He fell off during his first attempt. I think it was T3. Once again I'll be pulling for Tyler O'Hara this year. In 2011 he showed up as a van man on his own nickle and took home the big money. Then last season he was there for the very last turn of the last race of the year for the championship. O'Hara pulled up alongside Barney and grabbed his arm as they powered side by side to the checkers. It gave him just enough to pip Barney for the whole thing. Of course he got penalized and had to give it right back to Barney. Gotta' love those van man motorcycle racers...

I think we have seen the last of Cal on the podium for the season. Whatever "extra" (revs) Yamaha were allowing him, trying to woo him (were they really?), will be gone. Rossi should beat him at each remaining round.

Smith will be sixth again.

I like the prediction of Spies as top Ducati. That would be interesting.

I hope Nicky can beat Dovi. Nothing against Dovi.

Espargaro in the top 10.

The sport cars ran reverse?

Ugh, I mean even going the same direction, bikes are cars are going to have different lines.....I wonder what the logic there was, probably trying not to ripple the breaking zones.

Fixed it for you.....unless you were talking about the current Ducatis or the Yammie that Spies rode year.....then your original statement stands.

A certain Honda had a distinct issue in the the turn 3/4 area as well.

Streaming Sunday's race

I'll be up there at Indi for the races. I've always wanted to stream the video while watching it live. Anyone know of a website, like Fox Sports, that might be streaming the race live?

I know there is a mobile app from Dorna Sports that does this but I have tried this and the streaming audio/video content isn't there. I also don't like the $21.33 cost of the app.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
