I like Vale for the win, if it's wet.

I think it's gonna be the Cal-Val 4th place show for many races this season.

'tino had wet and dry podiums at Le Mans on the Duc. Granted, Simo had to take out Pedrosa in '11...

They are young(er) than Rosie, and it's beginning to look like they're faster nowadays, though I'd wait a couple races more to really know about that.

I say #46 is the hungriest of all ATM.. the Spaniards each tasted victory already this year.

Vale
Cal
Marky Boy

It's time for Vale to step up and Cal is due a podium as he's fast enough and deserves it. Marty will stuff it up the inside of his team mate and Jorge once again

70% chance of rain on Sat.
40% chance of rain on Sun.

A wet QP will mix up the starting grid.
A dry race will challenge bike set ups.
The stage is set for a surprise or two.
Thanks to MM, I think we will see more bumping from the others.

Rossi for the win.

Given the testing lead up to the season, the results for the last three races, my hopes for this race and the rest of the season, I can't make a prediction for this race as I'm so excited I think my head would explode.

On a more rational note, my top five will include:
Three Spanish guys, an Italian and a Pom. Way too unpredictable to put any order to that bunch, it's like trying to predict a zero degree overnight temperature in the middle of summer in the Australian outback....

Here's to a race with clear skies and no injuries.

They are warming up the hand bags.

This reminds me so much of Simoncelli's welcome into the big boys class.

I'm really quite amazed, and mayhaps disappointed in George's carry on with this. At the end of the day, it was his mistake, and he admitted as much himself!
So like, build a bridge man! (Revenge will be sweet)
