Hayden Issues (Spoiler)

What's the deal with Nicky? I know the people at HRC can't be to pleased with his results. Do you think he is starting to push to hard? Anyone know how long his contract is with Repsol Honda? I can see the first year learning the tracks the second year he should be at least up front contending and the third year he should definately be winning. Rossi and Sete are the class of the field but it would be nice to see an American challenging for the lead......

I think Nickey is doing fine...he qualifys great in only year 2!!!! i think he still needs to learn the tracks, but i do beleive he should be farther this year than he is. He had better get a podium in the next few races!!!!!!!

BTW what happened to him last week, I deleted the race and missed the part were he went out. (i saw checca crash and hayden fall to 13th or 15th!! than nowhere???)

PS Kurtis should quite now, he jumped over there way too soon beacause of his name, i think he wasted any legit chance he had to ride moto gp for a competative team!!!)

Yeah, I'm wondering what's up with ole Nicky too. At Mugello he had a DNF for mechanical problems, and at Catalunya he pulled off the track. What happened there? And I have no idea why he went from the front row to 15th place in a lap. Hell, even Nakano placed in the top 10 with his KAWASAKI!!!! woo hoo!!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I think the competition is very challenging there. The riders are so good that most weekends it's all about bike set-up. Rossi's crew chief is the unsung hero behidn "THe Man". With any other crew cheif, Rossi would have 1 or 2 fewer wins.

Hayden was really shooting hard for a podium last weekend and just pushed it too far.

I think he'll get there.

Remember, there are only 3 podium spots with 6-10 riders fully capable of landing one of those 3 spots. I don't think this is by far the most competitve field motorcycle racing has ever seen in the feature class. It's almost as tight as a typical 125 or 250 race. The machines are that equal and the riders are that equal in the top 10 slots. Jsut look at how close qualifying has been

Nicky Hayden, Repsol Honda Team: retired: "Just so disappointed. This morning I went out on used tyres to get a feel for the conditions and it all felt pretty positive. I seemed to have problems all weekend with practice starts and in the race it was a disaster. Just couldn't get any power down right up to turn one by which time half the grid had got past. During the race the bike seemed to loose power and I noticed some fluid on the windscreen that I guess must have been water because when the bike eventually stopped we discovered the radiator had been holed a small stone I guess. I'm definitely disappointed not to get a result again. Onto the next race!"
