Rossi against Stoner again this year i predict.

Do you follow Moto GP - do you like motorbikes but have never seen the 200mph+ spectacle.

Watch it pick a winner and enjoy.

Well we had to wait another day for it, and it did look like a great battle between Rossi and Stoner, but then Rossi's tyres went off.

With the single tyre, we might get more great racing!

i wondered if anyone would notice this thread.

bit of a farce the first race - just like F1 - they change the time of the race for tv money and fail.

The F1 race was stupid because the locals kept telling them "It will rain if you race at 5 oclock"

But it's a bit harder to predict rain in the desert lol.

Good stuff, was watching the Qatar race again last night. Right before busting my own bike , feckin' pot hole snapped my swing arm >=(

Good race, Rossi was pushing it like there was no tomorrow but that Ducati was flying, shame Pedrosa is not fit to race properly.
Best MotoGP time for me was when Kevin Schwantz and his number 34 Suzuki were around. Amazing guy and my all time favourite.

I watched Schwantz go over the handlebars at the end of the straight at Donnington years ago.
We were on the other side of the track near Macleans and could see only helmets through binoculars and then, airborne. Think he clashed with Mick Doohan and it locked his front brake.
Schwantz like many other Americans of that era was genius.

I'm interested to see how Nicky Hayden goes with the Ducati team. He was carrying an injury in the first race after that crash in qualifying.
