Hopefully this would create the most energy for Hayden, while raising awareness in the US for Moto GP.

Wow. How long since Rossi has been on the front row? I had to read that twice.

And Cal has a new target!

And after MM waxed off Stoner's lap record, I couldn't help but get a giggle out of this

Double irony!

Marc MARQUEZ SPA Repsol Honda Team Honda
Jorge LORENZO SPA Yamaha Factory Racing Yamaha
Valentino ROSSI ITA Yamaha Factory Racing Yamaha "

IMHO: Likely finish in that order... maybe.

Marky is due for a fall surely, with Rossi pipping Lorenzo for first?

Rossi qualified on the front row and I'm feeling sentimental. I think if he can keep up his pace in the early laps, he can win it at the end. And I hope he can whup the kid doing it.

VR
MM
JL
DP

It's not a news if #46 in the front row. What I've been missing of him is his entertaining laps of being overtaken and re-overtaking moments to triumph his rivals. Perhaps that kinda show will be back shortly. Probably.

Yep, I'd want to see the old master vs. new, VR & MM go head to head for victory....

But if qualifying is any indication, MM had over 0.5 secs on JLo, and Rossi was still a tenth or two behind. Could be a tall order to stay with MM.

Rossi will get faster as the race goes on. He just has to have the pace the first half of the race, which in general, he has not.

Tomorrow should be good.

I'll go with Rossi for the late win over JL and DP.

And btw, that video exhausted me just watching it.

Moto2 has just been started before the GP class. I'll bet for Nakagami.

Nakagami so close, but yet so far...
