Thanks for posting...
...was curious to know how NH has to finish compared to Rossi to win one for America.
Should be the race of the decade!

Interesting, thanks Rapid.

What are the bookmakers in Vegas giving Hayden for odds?

Hayden finished second to Melandri in last years race. I think he was less than half a second behind. Dani Pedrosa vows he will do anything to help Hayden win the title. Maybe he'll take Rossi out this week!!!

I really doubt Rossi is not going to finish on the podium. Hayden is going to half to pull a trick out of his *ss this weekend.

This is like Tiger Woods going into a final round leading a tournament. He never loses. I think Hayden's more likely to choke than Rossi, even though I'm rooting for Hayden.

puig's butt-boy pedrosa could redeem himself by taking rossi out. Then valentino could punch him out and being vale get away with it. The best possible outcome.
Nicky wins, and pedrosa gets the whipping he deserves, by someone with impunity no matter what. One can wish....

And I agree with Steve. barring a catastrophic failure, Vale is going to win the race and the championship. I wouldn't take odds he's going to lose.

Well Rossi has won more races this year than the Yank . I must say the Yank is a nice guy, just a bit down on the talent scale compared to Rossi. So I would back Rossi , better comp this year than last and lets hope next year is also close. MotGp is the second best sporting event going at the moment.

'Well Rossi has won more races this year than the Yank '
rossi has won more races than ANYONE in the modern era.
There's Rossi and then there's everyone else....and he's a genuinely nice person and hard not to like.
But, having ancestors from 'the dark and bloody ground' (what 'kentucky' means in an Indian dialect) I want to see Nicky win....but I won't be placing any 50:1 odds on him to do so. Never bet against Rossi.

Steve that is a perfect anology...
...and now more than ever I think Hayden will not win the Championship,
...but maybe Colin Edwards will take out Rossi?

Know let me see if I can come up with a hockey example
with Wayne Gretzky, the great one!
