Let's really look at this. Rossi hasn't ridden for over two months and he's only 0.17s behind biaggi on a bike he's never been on. He's got his challenge and biaggi has a history of fragging under pressure whether Honda does or not. He's temperamental, egotistical and useless outside of his very narrow groove. Rossi is adaptable, has racecraft and a much wider range of skills. He also has fun and works together with his team towards a common goal. Now who do you think will be able to withstand a season of pressure. Yamaha will give him anything he wants in a bike because they know it will reflect on them if he doesn't win at least a few races.

Default Good point, I missed him.

He, Sete, will come in before Nicky. Thanks for pointing that out. I am a Baylis fan. But its hard not to be a Rossi fan.

I want to see how bad Biatch freaks out when Hayden beats him this season which is going to happen at some of the races. We are going to hear all kinds of whining about his inferior equipment again.



I think Nicky is another one of the guys like Rossi who really steps it up during the race and doesn't lose his composure easily. Max seems to rail until he feels pressure then he just comes unglued.

Wow! After reading all the final standings from the experts I guess I can skip watching this year.



So what are your predictions for 2005?

Default 2004 Predictions

I think it'll shake-out something like this:



1.) Barros

2.) Gibernau

3.) Rossi

4.) Biaggi

5.) Capirossi

6.) Edwards

7.) Hayden

8.) Tamada

9.) Melandri

10.) Bayliss

11.) Checa

12.) Hopkins



- But personally, I'm cheering for Edwards, Hayden, Bayliss, Capirossi and Rossi

No they weren't, Rossi's bike had a different engine spec and a different chassis spec. And any "difference", however small, can mean significant differences in lap times. So unless they were on the same spec bike, on which different "settings" may be tweaked, they were on different machines.
