Talking Aussie Moto GP

FINALLY!!! A race that's on during the day, so I don't have to tape it.

(And rooboy doesn't have to stay up to watch it )

Of course, I'm stuck at work, but I've got a TV in here and, being the weekend, there's no bosses around.

So, who do like for it? Can anyone get past Rossi??

We all know that Rossi loves the track and the fact that alot of his machanics are aussies should push him pretty hard for a win. But what about Casey Stoner now he is one hell of a rider and a win here could open up a good shot at the championship, he may only be on a 250 but it won't be long before he's on a big bike then watch out.

Cookee have you got a Big screen TV at work? Lots a beer and a BBQ? Maybee some Wild Turkey or Jack Daniels to have with your mates?........No! Sorry to hear that mate.

I can't believe the 250's are lapping only a few seconds slower than the GP bikes!!! Go Casey!!!


No big screen TV, beer, spirits or BBQ.


The upside? I'm getting PAID while I'm watching it!

What a Sick MotoGP. Rossi did show his dominance in letting Hayden take the lead, just to steal it right back from him a couple of laps later. Hayden rode a great race and fought for his podium spot. I think Hayden has it in him to get a "W" in one of the last two races.

Anybody else?

May be Rossi is just a sick mofo who likes to toy with his rivals. This guy... really knows what he's doing... on track he's good at (which is about 85%), he owns it. And the rest, he puts up helluva fight to win.

Hayden does have a bright potential, if Rossi leaves the GP scene for Formula 1, we could probably expect Hayden to win a championship.

Wow, from leaning a bike to driving a cage? I had no idea that this could be done. I guess racing experience and track knowledge can be transferred to whatever sport one chooses. Has Rossi gotten any offers from any racing teams or major sponsors?

Ya, but does this guy have any kind of experience in a formula 1 car? His track knowledge may be amazing, but there has got to be a big difference leaning a bike compared to driving a car.
