Tell them you're going to give your login information to 3 people to balance it out until they fix the billing, that may speed up the process

Hmm, so a billboard off these areas would be a good deal?
http://www.businessinsider.com/most-...a-2011-10?op=1

#1 shows up with more than 1.5 million hours of "viewing" availability.

Back in the day when I was shopping bicycle race sponsorship, I almost understood this. Never quite articulated it in my mind or aloud. Exactly what I needed to know.

This of course brings me back to CRT's and how you con somebody into paying for that?
Give us a million dollars and your company name might be seen on Television by millions as it cartwheels through the kittylitter.

I just saw this on MCN's web page about Biaggi's test on the Pramac Ducati today;
"According to inside sources at Mugello, Biaggi’s best lap of the morning was a 1.49.7. The fastest race lap set at last weeks Mugello MotoGP race was set by Marc Marquez with a 1.47.639 meaning that Biaggi is currently around two seconds off the pace – first time out on a MotoGP bike since 2005."

Interesting!

Ever heard of MinxFlix before PBM showed up with them as a sponsor a few races back? I sure had not.

I had never heard of Repsol Oil or Q8 Oil or Agip, or even Red Bull until I saw them as sponsors in Moto GP and WSBK.

"Inside sources" = Two Italian guys in Biaggi's entourage who argued, gesticulating wildly, over who would get to press "Start" on the laptimer. The argument was settled when the team manager reached between them and hit the button roughly 5 seconds after Biaggi passed on his flying lap.

Well they are co-chairmen of the I-love-Vale fan club.......

Think Max had studied Rossi's Mugello lap times before he climbed onto the GP-13 today?

Yeah, I know it. I have firsthand knowledge of Nascar, I grew up in the southeast U.S. and there was a major track that had lots of events 10 miles from my house. I went to quite a few races as a kid and into my teenage years.

I seem to remember after Rossi just came back from breaking his leg he tested a factory supersport and was running faster times than Biaggi on his WSBK?

It was a superbike, not supersport, and he was running competitive times, don't know about faster than Biaggi though. But given he and Max aren't exactly best mates, if beating Max's times was his goal, I'm sure he could have done it!

I can take or leave Jlo....not a fan, but not an anti fan either. Rossi was a great racer, but I never was one to jump on a band wagon.
With that said, I did find it funny how everyone was always bagging on Jlo and how his success only came from Rossi developing the bike. I think Rossi going to Ducati for those two years, and Jlo still doing just fine developing the bike. shows this.. Further illustrated by Rossi coming back to Yamaha, and not all out dominating. I also think the talent pool in GP is so much deeper now, than it was when he was winning all his championships.

Stoner.

ETA: I believe Max and Vale have called a truce and even follow each other on Twitter.

I'm going to make a rash prediction here and say that I think that if Rossi doesn't start getting the sort of results he hoped for soon he'll retire at the end of this season (or go to WSBK). There's no way he'll do a Schumacher and just trundle round making up the numbers. That'd free up a spot for his mate Cal and allow Pol to go to Tech 3.
I may be wrong though (it wouldn't be the first time).

Has it ever happened that a rider has voluntarily retired while under contract?

I dunno but I'm sure a sideways move to WSBK could be engineered if it was what he wanted. I know Rossi's had a humbling couple of years at Ducati but I don't think he expected to be fighting for fourth or fifth spot on his return to Yamaha. Maybe he'll still get to grips with the M1 and my theory won't be put to the test anyway?
