Cant tell you how excited i am about the new motogp season. The yamaha's look like the team to beat, Stoner is back to full finess, Honda are nowhere really, how will ben spies go?

Can Bradley Smith win the 125cc championship? Lots of questions about moto2 aswell.

Excited about the 125s, Yes, Excited about Moto2 most definitely, Excited about Moto GP, Sort of. Laughing

Like you say Matt, The Hondas are nowhere, Which once again will leave a battle between the 2 yamahas and Stoner, Until that is Lorenzo crashes.

I would love to see Spies challenge but I don't see any other riders apart from Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo and maybe pedrosa winning this season.

Hella excited about this weekend Very Happy Dont really follow anyone in 125cc, but it's always good to watch and Moto2 should be mint Cool Not really hyping up the GP race too much because i am just expecting Stoner to piss off at the front like he always does in Qatar Laughing

I am looking forward to it, the main race that is. The start time is awesome, cannot get better then a 9 pm start in the evening. It increases the show immensely.

I'll be channel flicking between this and IndyCar.

Can get far better start times, hate races that are late at night, early morning or early afternoon is the best start time. The only advantage of this start time is it wont interfere with Valencia WSBK Laughing

Bautista is going to surprise everyone and win, i am telling you all Wink Laughing

Spot on mate, What better Sunday then getting to watch WSBK and Moto GP all in the same day.


Well who knows about Bautista, But this track hasn't been that good for the Suzukis so any points finish will do. But if anyone can do it Alvaro can.

In 125cc I am supporting Smith, Espargaro and future champion Jonas Folger.
In 250cc Moto2 I am supporting Passini, Pasek and Elias.
In Moto GP I am supporting everyone but Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo. Laughing

125cc- Not really supporting anyone at the minute in that

Moto2- Iannone (Mentalist Laughing) and Corti (Mint riding style on last year's Alstare SS1000)

MotoGP- Rossi and Bautista



Also, apparently Ian Lowry is going to be wildcarding in Moto2 in all the Spanish rounds this year, should be god to see how he get's on

Yep I am loving the sound of them bikes. Is it the same engine as the cbr600?

I am liking the look of the Tech 3 colours, and did you see how far Passini was sliding that thing cheers

Good times with these bikes am sure. It will be more exciting then Moto GP that's for sure.

Not too sure, i would guess so. Around 140hp apparently though, as for the rumours saying they had 115 Laughing

Stoner on usual form in Qatar then, Bautista 7th Very Happy Very Happy

I think it will be the same engine, But I think the supersports have a bit more top end power and the Moto2 have higher revs but a bit less power.

Either way, It has driven costs down which can only be good. 250cc is a dead market anyway, Atleast we still have the 125 2T to listen to.

Really liking moto2, I just wish it was open engine, open tyres and open fuel.

I'm wondering if motogp could go open chassis but with store bought race engines. It just might work.

Nope, Because that would mean the end of Superbikes. I would rather Moto GP dissolve then WSBK.

It would be like getting rid of the prototypes in Endurance racing.

Anyone noticed the little smiley face underneath Vasquez's rear fairing. Well under where the pillion would sit.

Stoner on Pole, From Rossi and Lorenzo.

Makes the race look a bit better knowing that Stoner didn't totally dominate that.

Randy on 4TH cheers cheers


I am going to make a statement here, I would like people to remember this: BAUTISTA will be Champion before Lorenzo
