    I'm hoping Vale stuffs cry baby stoner again and my wild card for a few podium finishes is dovisioso, hope JT does well this year as he set off reasonably well last year.

    my thoughts exactly,
    i reckon stoner will start off strong early on in the season but the doc will grind him down again!
    as for dovy, hes the dogs, cant believe how consistant he was last year on the satelite ride, just hope the repsol squad do him proud and dont throw all there eggs in one basket with danny.
    cant stand gibernau but i hope he gets up the front a few times so we can see some battles with 46 again.

    I'd go with that and I would like to see JT and Colin Edwards show some consistancy they say edwards is the winter world champion because he is stunning in testing but rarely does well in races.

    i just watched free practice and edwards was i think third, but like you say he doesnt seem to be consistant, every season he seems to just be getting there and then drops off never to be seen again.
    dovy was fourth until the last couple of mins. (i think/hope hes going to lead the repsol garage) but honda do seem to behind a bit, i think they ran on the back of vale and the mitchys for to long.
    again today the satalite honda seemed to peek the full factory bike.
    by the way it was covered live on british eurosport 2 just in case anyones wondering.

    Motorbikez, are you going to any of the races this season?
    im hoping to go to one of the spanish ones again this year.

    I'll definately be going to Donny but not to any of the races abroad as I am already getting grief off her indoors and the kids as 3 of us are off to the North west 200 in N Ireland in May.
