Rossi wins a bunch of races.. Stoner leads a bunch of races but then crashes.
Hayden wins some, but not enough. Lorenzo and pedrobot somewhere in between those.

I hope Hayden is competitive this year. So much more fun to root for someone from the states.

Oh well, gotta love Tivo

Not with Verm or Capirossi, they threw there 09 season away when they passed on spies :nana: I imagine he would have done decent on the the 09 bike. He's on the path to proving he can learn the world tracks pretty quickly to. And don't think you were talking about yuki?
I just hope they're some good racing. Most of the AMA and wsbk races have been good so far, but maybe i've just been missing racing to much this winter.

For a second, I thought I was in an episode of Quantum Leap. Then I read the update on the bottom regarding rain. What a let down. I was all fired up all day to watch the season opener. Oh well.
