Sorry Mike, the natives are restless.

We've had two great races in a row, is it Rossi's turn to duel with Marquez for the win? This track could suit the M1 and Rossi seems to have good momentum.

Also, it's round 8 of Crutchlow vs. Ducati.

Rossi on the podium.

Everyone knows the rest.

Unless it rains then....Rossi on the top of the podium, unless Hayden...well nevermind.

Keep in mind that Assen is a place where surprises happen -- Ben Spies in 2011 and Rossi last year.

How about 'Somebody get their Assen gear and start this thread!?'

Marquez is amazing yet I want to see someone else win now.

Anybody but Marquez would be a shock, but I'm thinking Rossi.

This track is known for producing new winners, so you want to bet on fresh blood.

But that kid has been slaying them, left and right.

I won't bet against him, he's on a roll...

However, if anyone can ever pull off a banzai last chicane move and make it stick, it will be Marc.

Not in MotoGP, he and Nicky got tangled in that last chicane the year Nicky won the championship.
I was jumping up and down in front of the TV not knowing who to cheer on and who to yell at.

I'm going with the Rossi
Marc
Pedrosa

Jlo will continue to flounder holding his head and muttering to himself...
