Shanghai boring :finger:
Thats what 800s have done. the minor power differences are highlighted in a smaller bike.

I want 500 smokers back :crying:

Good luck to roo boy, dont get me wrong, but this is turning into the gravey train that F1 is.
Aside from pizza boy getting it wrong in desperation a couple of times nothin going on.
The kwak did well.

A bit harsh BP

OK wasnt the most exiting race ever but the top three were close and two laps from the end it could have been any one of the three winning. I was track side between turn one and two with a great view. Nice to see Hopper getting on the podium finally. Worst thing about Shanghai? No Burger van:finger:

I say go the 800's!!!!! Ok, I did have a few clams on Stoner at $3.50 for the win :p :p

Turned out just as expected really, that thing could have won with you on it BP, what a rocketship :D

The racing is way better than watching Rossi win every race ;) ;) Good to see Suzuki and the Kwacka getting amongst it too...

Can't see the same thing for the French GP though.

What the fark is a bruger??

I think you got a tainted view from track side. Aside from a few desperate attempts by Rossi nobody was near taking the lead all race. Trailer trash managed to stay in touch but was on the limit a few times. You should watch it on the telly again mate.

KFC is fucked ...new frame ...new engine ...last years forks and still nowhere. He did well to stay on after elias parked in his bike but should have got back in the top ten easy after that.

Conclusion. Shanhai is a shite track for bikes and Stoner is well in for the championship.

Although i hate that twat Nick Harris i have to agree "never say never" where Rossi is concerned. But damn is that duke fast.

They obviously had the right set up for top speed on the straight and managebale in the turns. Did you watch hopper do the right to left flip after turn 1. Looked like he was wrestling a bull.

Really looking forward to the chicane at Le mans. Should be a right shit fight lap 1.:D

Could have been worse

Stoner, who leads the world MotoGP championship, revealed he had power in reserve as he waited for second-place Italian superstar Valentino Rossi to mount a late challenge in Shanghai.

"Yes, I had something in reserve, especially the last six laps," Stoner said.

"I had quite a bit left, the tyres started to grip better with less fuel on board and I think I had some more pace if I needed it against Valentino," he said.

So you've got a 5 times world champ behind you. He's had a couple of nibbles and you dont try to fuck off into the distance.
Gimme a break will ya.
Thats it .......No World Championship for you my son!!! Money anybody :thumb:

"I had quite a bit left, the tyres started to grip better with less fuel on board" Physically impossible ! The bike may handle better with reduced fuel load ...fair enough
As we all know grip is down to pressure on a contact patch! Less weight = less pressure. Unless stoner has changed a few fundamental laws of physics. He should leave talkin shite to that Oz commentator git who thinks the only people on the grid that speak english are Ozzies.

Fair enough BP BUT....

Like I said before, Stoner talked up his chances on the Friday, knowing the Duke would be hard to beat around there... the fact that he could gap Rossi twice a lap and not get away tells me he had more. Why push it if you know you can stay close and blast past on the way to the line?? Reduces the risk of a fall, which would still be on his mind after last season.

I think he has proven his race craft over the past few years, esp for a 21 year old, I mean I could barely be bothered to get out of bed at that age!!!

No fair comparing anyone to that twat Mark Bracks, how can he still have a job???? What a fair dinkum tosser.... :twofinger :twofinger

Somthing left?

Im in the if you could why didnt you camp:squid:
The Duc was clearly faster down the long straights but Rossi was closing the gap on the brakes and by half way through turn one he was right up his arse. By turn 5 Rossi was close enough to try a pass on more than one occasion. It looked like Rossi was having to work very hard to keep up but only because he was chasing the worlds fastest pizza delivery bike. Lets see what happens on a normal circuit where the straights are shorter than your average space shuttle landing strip.

Rossi did say that Stoner was so quick he may need a gun to stop him. In Italy that might be considered an open contract and you may well find some nutter who is willing to actually do it over there:eek: Riding the pizza bike might be the only thing keeping him from sleeping with the fishes :D

GD>Stoner talked up his chances on the Friday, knowing the Duke would be hard to beat around there... the fact that he could gap Rossi twice a lap and not get away tells me he had more

Or that Rossi was creamin him everywhere else GD. Point of view mate ...point of view. I think we all know who'd have won on the same bikes!!! Top ride for the roo boy thou. Can;t be easy when you know Rossi ( and at least another 10 top riders) are at yer heels!!!:thumb:

GD> I think he has proven his race craft over the past few years, esp for a 21 year old, I mean I could barely be bothered to get out of bed at that age!!!

Hang on! hang on!. What about all that jumpin off for no reason last season then !!!
:D

Nothin against stoner but i dont want another ozzie world champ.

Yank ...better than a frog or armada jockey ( like that prize knob in the 250 with the chubba chip lolly)

Bout time for a Jap...seems somehow acceptable seeing as how the bikes are nearly all Japs !!!!!

Mark Bracks :squid:

Nick harris has finally figured out that the camera angle plays a role in the action on screen . Bout bleedin time. The number of times i've heard " and it's rider X tryin up the inside" when the buggers miles away. Where do they find these people.

Again I'll be the first to admit I'm biased on this one BUT...

Stoner on a 2 fifdy was amazing, he'd just hang in there and was often in the best possible spot come the last lap or two..... wasn't luck. Come on BP you know it, or were you at the bar during the support races :p

Admit his first year was ordinary, but plenty of others have struggled/crashed first year out on the big bangers.

I'm not saying Stoner can out ride Rossi, he'll retire long before that happens :cool:

Imagine the news of him waking with a horses head in the bed, got to love that italian enthusiasm :thumb: :thumb:

I've got a fix for you, what about your pommy boy cleaning up in SBK, maybe he should be drafted into GP next year???

World champ at 21 ( maybe 22 by then) fark That would be a stunner. Good on him..... No probs with that And i'd right in to Nick "biased git" Harris and tell him to shut the F up about Rossi bleedin this that and the other. Nope...if KFC is going to ride like he does now then BP's hunting for another rider thats exciting to watch. Elias and Melandri are well in the runnin on that one. Infact i'm a bit dissapointed that Melandri isn't up there with em. He certainly cuts the mustard when it comes to "entertaining" riding style.

SBK 1st Would love to see a brit win ( much in the way GD likes roo boy)
2nd That farkin jumped up little grumpy twat baggy doing so well does not make me happy at all. Only redeeming factor is he's kicking baywatch's arse on a regular basis.
3rd If only we could get at least some TV coverage. It's not even on torrents for download. ( and theres some shite on torrents trust me) Difficult to get behind somethin you cant even see the highlights of.
