Great Action!!!

I just love the action and seeing the Americans race near the front. I was crushed to see Nicky loose 3rd by inches. It is great to see Nicky so competitive again. Ben is going to be at the top soon too, and Collin wasn't too shaby either.

The end of year is going to be the most interesting though. Lots of contracts up and the moves are going to be interesting.

Anybets on where Rossi is going??? My bet is he will be on a Duc in 2011!

Laguna or Indy will be Bens best shot. Im surprised they didnt find anything wrong in tech inspection on that Honda. It was destroying the Duc on the straight!! It easily had 10-15mph on Nicky. Maybe he couldnt get good exit speed out of that last corner?

Tires going off I think....

I like watching the americans - Edwards mostly but Speis will be fun as long as "doesn't believe the hype" ala Toseland....

Even before the season started I had read where Honda was one of the fastest bikes in the field.
After last season, Honda had an about face. Went with Ohlins for suspension instead of Showa (who they own) and hired several Europeans (Italians I believe) to work on engine development and management.
It apparently is showing. I was surprised how much the Honda could pull the Ducati on the straights.
I wonder if the change in firing order on the Ducati is the result?
I had read where, for Nicki, Ducati was going away from the screamer firing order in favor of the twin-pulse firing order used on the 990 engine for better traction off corners. Stoner may still be running the screamer engine.
Also I was surprised to see how much of a lead Rossi was able to pull over the Honda and Ducati.
A 5th place for the first race isn't bad for Ben. I only wish Colin was up there also.
Should be an interesting season for sure.

yes it was good race and for sure is going to be a nice season..... if Ben doesn`t get that win at Laguna it may be at Philip Island close to the end of the season when he is more use to the tires and defently more comfy in that bike but hes going to be at the front more often than peaple think
