There are a few major headlines going into this race...
--Single tire rule in effect!!
--This is a night race!!
--Pedrosa is obviously still hurt, but will race...How will he do?
--Stoner has been testing at blazing speeds, as usual
--Hayden...Time to put up or shut up
--Lorenzo...Testing very well with great times
--Dovizioso...Might put Honda back on the podium
--Toseland...Pulled a Superman during testing and went to the hospital..How's he doing?

Your opening race thoughts?

gotta go wit casey on this one. He has won the last 2 there. Testing like a mad man. He likes the new swing arm and chassis - moves around less on him.

his only weakness has to be the wrist - can it make it a race distance?

Speedtv Sucks But Will Air The Race At 10pm On Sunday12th!
its weird because on motogp's website it says speed will be covering the races live. which is bullshit.

here is the direct quote from gp. com:

"In the United States Speed TV will cover every Grand Prix live"

Stoner all the way. He was unlucky not to walk away with the title last year IMO.
Great rider, great bike...still can't match Rossi when the machines are on par.. I'll give it to Stoner that he is the only one who mastered the Desmo.

One thing's for sure. no excuses.....from ANYONE. Spec tires, everyone (cept Pedro) is healthy and a couple of teams have ACTUAL factory bikes and bits. Stoner for the win though. first race and season.

B.S...allways a few hours delayed...I hate it when I find out the results before watching the race. Sucks!!

Roger on the no excuses part....Rossi or Lorenzo got my vote....

Not sure about Dovioso, can't care less about Pedrosa....don't think Honda has got the rider for winning this season's championship.

For the most part this is going to be a two way battle for the win most every race. Like an ama supercross.
That seems to be the pattern last year, but hopefully the tire and other rule changes will bring a few more towards the front to battle for the "W"..

Gotta go with Rossi, especially with Casey's wrist issue. Qualifying and testing are great but Rossi comes to race.
