Talking Stoner VS Rossi

Think Stoner / Ducati will be the new champion this season? I know...too early to tell but he looks like good competition for Rossi! (Come on Nicky...pull it together!!) Points are as follows:


1 Casey Stoner 86
2 Valentino Rossi 71
3 Dani Pedrosa 49
4 Marco Melandri 41
5 John Hopkins 39
6 Tony Elias 35
7 Colin Edwards 31
8 Loris Capirossi 30
9 Nicky Hayden 30
10 Chris Vermeulen 3

Next race is at Sears Point next weekend.


Thoughts?






Jen

Yeah those new ducati's are absolute monsters. I was watching an interview with Rossi and he admited that there was no way he could match the Ducati's straight line performance. If stoner can keep from crashing, looks like he stands a good chance of taking the title.

I still would like to see Hopkins finish on the podium at least Elbow Dragging FTW!

I don't think Stone will be able to keep it up all year. At the tighter tracks Rossi will walk all over him (like Jerez). The Duc is doing good at the fast tracks but not the tight ones. In the end, Rossi will be the champ again

Poppincaps88 did hpkins just get on the podium at Shanghi? I believe so.

Nicky's just plain fucked, he hasn't produced and he's obviously not comfortable on the bike, being rear-ended by Elias sure didn't help any either. I really think within a few races the jap bikes are going to catch that Ducati, it's just a matter of time. With this whole CC change someone had to dominate the opening era, I'm glad it's a Ducati, even if I hate them for dropping out of AMA.

Jen I think the biggest improvement this year are those dam Bridgestones they have Michilen scratching their heads after every race.

M predictions:
Rossi
Stoner
Melandri (although I would love to Hopkins here)
