I think it's official. Between the power of the Ducati's, the backing of the Repsol team, and this influx of young talent, Rossi will have his work cut out for him this season.

I agree, but remember the young bull old bull theroy - It's a looooong season and that man has MAD TALENT and super staying power - My .02 is that it just won't be cake walk for him anymore - Not to mention, he never qualifies well - I think he likes P6-P8 and enjoys carving thru traffic for the win

I will agree there as well - He is really coming into his own after the last 3-4 races last season and this season as well - He has to, 4 yrs now and Repsol wants to be on topl

Yeah but little fuckin Danny can ride man

Vermeulen is my ace in the hole - I think that kid is really going to come into his own - Hell, he made it REAL tough for Corser last yr and Troy can fuckin ride - The motherfucker is flawless

Yeah, Pedrosa's a stud...gotta get Vermeulen off thas Susucky though...he's got no chance on that thing...watch Roberts this year, RC211v engine and his old man's chassis, finally a bike he may be able to compete on.

I just want Gibby to finish a race. Wow looks like it will be a very interesting season. Good mix of young talent and proven vets. Can't wait to see the race.

Gibby? You mean Sete? If so, that is your opinion of course - Mine of him is he is a fukin pussy that complains to much.

But, he does race GP and I just try not to get tickets on the hwys in IllinoiS

Yes Sete Gibernau. I don't know if he is a pussy or not but the guy either has some serious bad luck, can't take the pressure or a bit of both. He has some serious talent just needs better focus. Early lasty season he was the only one constantly giving Rossi a run for his money. I'll root for him still.

I think Sete will have to do better on the Duc. If not, he'll be joining Biaggi very soon. Prior to 2005 he was a top rider. But he's been 'jinxrd' ever since the end of 2004 season when Rossi said that Sete would never win another MotoGP race on his watch.

So far, it's been true. Uncannily true...

Biaggi now that mofo was a crybaby pussy. His antics is what lost him his ride. He had a soso season but it was nothing that would have warranted losing his ride.
