You'll double the stand population from the looks of it.

I guess we'll find out if that analysis is true in the upcoming races which aren't 200 milers.

Agree. He could do like Rossi does. Start slow back about 6th position and then work his way to the front with 4 laps to go. That at least would give us some hope someone else might win the race.

I thought they said he refused to leave the track area and because of that they had to yellow flag the race until he cleared off. Was he pissed-off at the corner workers?

Indeed.



This is the only race in the series that lasts longer than a tire. It really is stupid.



Dear SpeedTV,



We'd really much rather see Miguels girlfriend than the race!

Default more of the scoop on Buell

More info from badweb poster "Anonymous"



"OK guys, here's the inside deal. One bike qualified on the second row, and the other three in the fourth row. Only Honda and Yamaha in front of McWilliams. That was a huge success. Note that these bikes were qualifying with stock engines, not qualifying engines.



The plan that all the teams had was to run slowly and carefully in the beginning and push during the last half of the race. Yet in the race Jeremy ran as high as 7th and Rico and Crevier were up to 11th and 12th during the first half. Big success.



However, in the race two bikes went out with broken clutch hubs, Mike and Rico. Inspecting the broken parts showed huge amounts of porosity, so they were just bad castings. Easy to fix.



Jeremy's bike broke a timing wheel, which were last minute parts that were laser cut because the production parts hadn't arrived. The laser cutting on this part had made a sharp notch, and the wheel cracked there. Won't happen again.



Steve's bike we don't know yet. But I'm sure there's nothing significant to worry about; we'll be back and competitive at the next race.



BTW, for all the ZTL doubters, the brakes worked superbly. And, Jeremy had no problem with his front brake, what happened was that Cicotto's crew wanted to help at the second pit stop since Mike was out. Unfortunately, they used their front tire stand.



Their tire stand didn't fit into the fork stem on Jeremy's bike because the hole in Jeremy's stem was smaller, so the bike was falling off the stand while they were working on it. In retrospect, when it didn't fit, they should have tossed it over the wall, and gotten Jeremy's stand. Monday (Sunday?) morning quarterbacking is easy. But they chose to try to do the tire change while balancing a bike that was falling over.



Aren't you glad you read BWB for the facts?!!
