Thank you all!



Further evidence that New Zealand really is at the end of the civilised world, please send memos of further re-namings so I have a faint chance of keeping up.

As long as Pedrosa continues to win some races against perfectly healthy competition, he has a shot at the championship.

Replace "Suzuki" with "Ducati" and you've got a similar situation. They were great once, but lost their way years previous.

I'd like to see the open class threaten factory bikes, but I don't see it happening for a couple of years at the earliest.

And that is his tragedy. He is good enough to win a championship, but somehow, he never does.

That he doesn't quit, after all his injuries, says a lot too.

It's premature to say never.
Misfortune seems to bounce around like a ping pong ball in a clothes dryer.

I hope Dani finally wins it this year.

Marquez or Lorenzo are absolutely not gonna be easy to beat, but who knows what will happen. If DP would not have to sit out races while injured, then he'll be close, again...

Hey, don't feel left out- I'm in the U.S., on here daily and subscribe to Krop's site plus read others and the Flock reference had me wondering. I suspected it was AB but wasn't sure.

Now we need some racing (or even some testing- that's pretty desperate, eh?)

PLEASE!

Live timing, and a summary. Live video footage is immensely boring. A five minute video recap is the methadone that will tide you over to Qatar
