OT Motogp

Well I am back in the good ole USA to get some more CME and I just finished attending a conference in Vegas. Anyhow, I am now with the outaws in Maitland Florida and wondering where I can watch the Motogp race? I guess you guys don't have Eurosports.

I can't wait to punch out of here as my German dealer emailed me and the Italians finished putting together my 07 Ducati ST3S. I must be the only owner of a US spec 07 St3S in Senna gray as you guys can only get the red and black.

I will post pics and a big thanks to all you American taxpayers as you paid for it during my 6mos tax free stint in the sandbox.

Anyone notice Mr. Bayliss guest appearance back in MotoGP?
10 in day 1 practice. 6th in day 2 practice. And 2nd, behind only Rossi in qualifying. Too bad he didn't run like that while on the team. Great guy, so it's cool to see him up there (though I'd like to have seen Rossi and Hayden's positions reversed)

And where the heck did Nakano come from? He's been wicked fast all weekend too.

Top ten all turned 1:31s. Anyones guess at this point.

My bet...Rossi is a horrible starter off the line. Going into the first turn he'll be in 3rd place or worse. Being Rossi - that won't last but having the two Ducs right up front there could mean another run away for them. When the Ducs are on - they're on!

If Rossi starts out in front of Hayden you have to wonder if Hayden will be able to dig down deep enough to take the chances needed to pass him. I would like to see both of them close together during the race more than anything else. Let one of them "earn" the win by out riding the other.

Championship wise these are the only two that can win. Even if they both don't finish no one else can win the championship.

I'm thinking this will be some great watching. I hope no one crashes and everyone finishes the race.

I'm a MAJOR Rossi fan but he doesn't exactly blow people away comming off the starting grid.

You'll see tomorrow.

I don't have the statistics in front of me, but I don't see where this "horrible starter" comment comes from either. I think the statistics would show he's better than average, perhaps much better.

Maybe horrible is too strong a word. I'm probably expecting a terrific hole shot from him and it doesn't happen.

If you've still got Portugal on Tivo watch the start. Edwards hole shot Rossi in a big way and was leading going into T-1 then it's almost like Edwards let him thru (teamwork?).

Other races are the same. I just checked my Tivo. Looks like my kids have recorded enough cartoons that my racing has been erased but it's been the same in many races. Looks like Rossi doesn't really mind not being the first one into turn one. Could be a strategy since it can be crowded and the potential for a pile up is bigger there than probably anywhere else in a race.

Watch him and it's as though he'll keep them with in reach and get into his rhythm then he'll pass.

I still say he won't be the first into T-1 tomorrow. He may win, however.

Remember I'm a *huge* Rossi fan. I just don't see big starts coming off the grid.

Well I think Baylis could win this one, mind you if Capa needs a better position to get Third then I bet team orders will prevail. Baylis is just such a talent,but more importantly races to win, Sete hasn't found this attribute , and few older riders seem to retain it, I suppose it is because bouncing is feared more as one ages.

Well I would have rather stayed put at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center as a Gastroenterologist but I got whored out to the 1st AD. I sat in Kuwait seeing sick call for 4 hrs every 6th day for 6 mos. So do the math, I worked 40 less hrs a week and made about $2500 more a month in tax free coin.

Now, if you really want to know the true cost of having me sit in the sand box you have to add 50% of gastroenterology services turfed out to the Germans. So I would say about 150-200 patients per month (non active duty) were sent out to the economy (German docs). I am sure that was a couple million euros. Oh, I am sure my host nation also thanks you American tax payers, esp. you Chris.

The saga ends with me resigning my commission and now I am a contract Gastroenterologist at Landstuhl. I am seeing the same patients, in the same office but I make 3.5x my army doc salary. Oh and let's not forget about the 85K tax free overseas contractor tax break. Again, I have to thank the current administration for deploying too many docs which lead to a mass exit from the medical corps. FWIW, 25% of the army gastroenterologist left this year. It is good to be a civilian.

As for the bike, senna gray is just a color and is not available in the US. Ducati Deutschland had no problem ordering a US spec bike with the different Tupperware. The red on red frame was too red and black doesn’t work for me. Here is a pic of an ST4S in senna gray.

OBTW, I found out my brother in law has speedvision so I can watch the race after the fact at 1530 today.

Well looks like I picked the winner, great ride by Baylis, and good result for the Kentucky Kid. You have to give Baylis a big heads ups I don't think anyone was going to beat him on the day.

Yep, Hayden is the new champion.
I'm glad Honda is back on the top, and I hope the guy will prove he can win more races next year.
Congrats boy.
But Bayliss !! What a race, what a rider ! He had not ridden a motogp since last year. Comes from nowhere (well he's the superbike champion, but there must be a huge difference between these 2 categories) and dominates on an amazing Ducati.

Cheers.

And for the start of the race....I rest my case.

My man Rossi didn't win. But he did have another bad start like I mentioned above. In the first 50 yards he slipped from 1st to 3rd. By turn one he was in sixth place.

Speed channel was kind enough to show the start again from a different angle. I can't believe I'm the only one that noticed Rossi has bad launches.

Regardless, I rest my case.

Bad launches....that's why he's always playing catch up. Of course he's good enough to actually catch up and then lay in wait and spring at the end. A Rossi way to ride, but it starts with insecure launches. A great talent for sure....so glad to see Nicky win and Rossi exhibit stellar sportsmanship. Aaron Yates would have pitched a fit...or worse yet kicked someone. (Sorry...just can't let go of that.)

Glad for the way it turned out. Happy for Nicky, and happy that the episode with Pedrosa and Rossi's illegal pass on Philip Island are now non-issues and can be forgotten. Also glad Pedrosa doesn't have to feel bad for ruining it for Nicky. This is very good for MotoGP in the United States, too.

How about Nicky and Il Doctore banging fairings at the start. That could have been ugly!

Rossi like Doohan before him never seems too bothered with the slow starts.

They like to get the bike up to temp and set up a good race pace and rythym.

The Yamaha is notorious for being less than stellar in handling on a full fuel load. Even Kenny SR noted in an interview after the fall the Yamaha did not look right.

Every time Rossi has a slow start I tell my sons he just getting up to temp and burning off the fuel.

Once he get is right there are only a couple of guys out there that will stay with him.

I think it is still an inferior bike to the Repsol Hondas and his skill enables him to do what he does.

Congrats to Nicky and excellent sportmanship by Rossi at the end.

He must have have been really upset with himself when he went down but had the presence of mond to get it going as quickly as possible.

Nicky won with the championship with 2 race wins and many consistent finishes.

Rossi has had all the problems as discussed and it is a pity that they did not get to race for it to the flag due to the fall.

About the "IFS"

If Edwards beat Hayden at Assen, the result a tie.

If Rossi beats Elias at Estoril, the result a tie.

It was not to be.

That is racing at the end of the day.

As for Bayliss. Good one Troy. If the Ducati was as sorted as it is now he would have done better the first time around.

The Honda did not suit him and with his return to WSB he proved his skill.

So to bookend the Ducati 990 era with podiums of 3rd and a win is amazing.

Good but disappointing racing from Rossis fall.

Good racing from the results.

Did not need the bag as I was glued to my seat and suppressed all else.
