Daytona 200 PREDICTIONS

So, who's gonna win? Any other predictions? Will there be tire failures, red flags, or will it be a clean race? Break-away, or another drafting war to the finish line?

I think Duhamel is going to sweep it.
I'm wondering if the Ducati is going to be reliable enough to last 200

I'd like to see Yates do it but I just don't think its gonna happen...
That Canuck is pretty crafty when it comes to the draft.

Just based personal preference:

1. Eric Bostrom
2. Aaron Yates
3. Jake Zemke
4. Ben Bostrom
5. Miguel DuHamel
anywhere but 1st: Mat Mladin

Don't think it'll play out like that, but we'll have to wait and see...

edit--
Oh- other predictions... Mladin's gonna cry so much during the race and flood the track. All the teams will have to pit and change to rain tires. Then he's gonna do his usual routine when he doesn't win: insult the US, make excuses, and point fingers- in no particular order.

You guys all should stay away from the horse track.

Its gonna be

1st: Mladin!!! He will finish 3 laps up from everyone else (you all are just jealous of him )

Then there will be a battle for second between e boz and Duhamel, Duhamel will rocket past E Boz from 3rd to second just before the finish.

Good catch!

I have no explanation. Biaggi is my favorite MotoGP rider. Flame away... I'm used to it.

If your Daytona prediction wasn't so blatantly wrong... lol

But I knew you had to be an intelligent man! Now let's see how many other people agree with us...

E Boz and Biaggi have been my favorites for years.

Seriously, I'd say if the Ducati doesn't win- DuHamel will probably be there. He owns Daytona.

Agree, gotta go with Mladin on this one. He will be the one to beat.

well, I picked Miguel cause he's smartest of the bunch and when he's on equal equipment hard to beat.

BBoz is prolly going to finish strong (but not win).

EBoz is the wildcard in all this - we know the Duc is fast, but will it last the whole 200 miles?

and then there's Mat - I'd like to see him win (thanks guys ) but I'm not sure he wants to win @ Daytona with how much he hates it there... of couse last year he was bitching and then would win so another x-factor.

Another guy who has a lot of skill but I'm not a big fan of.
He looks strong in motogp this season.
