MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

Yes, I know the calender still says 2010, but testing tomorrow really is the start of the season.
Forecast is good, high 60's and partly cloudy. Who will be faster, Stoner on the Honda or Rossi on the Duc? Will either of them be faster than Lorenzo? How will Spies do on the factory Yamaha??
Stay tuned!!!

I really wish that I hadn't missed out on 2010's season. Sounds like I'm a behind the times a bit. Time to catch up I suppose.

Re: MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

i hope rossi can do something with that front end unless he likes falling on his head. I'm thinking rossi will be slow in testing, but cant wait to see him on the ducati and hopefully in his 2011 ducati colours/helmet. Wonder how long it will take stoner to start drifting the back tire...im thinking 15 laps seems like enough time.

'bout time someone started this thread.



Stoner quickest in testing. Rossi still hurt, Dani still hurt, Lorenzo still hung over.

Re: MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

By the end of the test, Lorenzo will be fastest, Rossi second, Spies third, Stoner fourth.Then Dovi, Simoncelli, Hayden. Spies could be second if bike is to his liking.

Re: MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

although I really hope rossi pulls another magic season in 2011, I have to say I doubt it.

I think he'll be quick and the duc will be developed really well with him riding it, but I think Yamaha M1 will still be the bike to beat.

Spies will get his first GP win in 2011 and will have a few podiums.

Stoner will pull a few 1st places but I still see him sliding through the gravel traps more often than the other aliens.

Dovi will be top 5 and Pedrosa will do his standard: catch a holeshot and fade as pressure builds.

Re: MotoGP 2011 - The Official Thread

Rich - good call on starting the thread - Can't imagine Rossi will push this week - think he's scheduled for surgery next week. But who knows, with Burgess and the whole crew, they might get that DUC rolling like the beloved M1 by Wed......

Early days lads...You never know what new bits riders / teams are trying so you can't read to deeply into it at this point...
