Thumbs up Honda

Untill I see how the Duc runs Id say that a Honda rider will win every round but cant be more specific than that cos Im a muppet

Any idea who is riding what in the Superbike's this year ?
Suzuki are running Gixxer 1000's but dont know who is on them.

Incidentally I hear that Suzuki are testing WSB's at Sepang this Sunday, who wants to go and have a look see

I don't know the answer but would like to see Chris Walker on one? I reakon he and Dave Jefferies would make good scrabble opponents!!! The farking game would never start......

I think Troy will win a race or two, specially in the wet

Rossi tips Ducati for 2003
--------------------------------

2 Jan 2003

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi predicts Ducati rider Loris Capirossi will be a major threat in 2003.

Capirossi has beaten lap records at Jerez and Phillip Island in testing. On the final day of testing in Australia he recorded a time of 1:32.1, 0.1s inside Rossi’s own lap record, and only 0.2s outside the fastest ever lap of the circuit by Jeremy McWilliams.

Capirossi’s team-mate, Troy Bayliss was only 0.2s behind, and the performances have caught the eye of Rossi, who said, " " The Ducati is fast, this is clear. I don’t know if they will be ready to fight for the championship, but I am sure that Loris will win some races next season, this is for sure. "

Rossi and his rivals will find out just how competitive the Desmosedici is next month when he tests alongside Capirossi and Bayliss at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia on January 20. It will also give Ducati’s engineers a clearer indication of just where they are compared to Honda’s dominant V5. So far they have carried out all their winter tests either on their own or with Aprilia.
""

So who wants to go to Sepang on January 20th ???
