A few tenths and Nick's on the box. If he can get the front to load I think he can consistantly run with Aliens.

I searched the listings for Tee Vee coverage, but Speed was on a NASCAR binge all weekend. Did anybody watch it?

Speed is running races live at 8am for Europe rounds. Asian rounds are pre-taped and US rounds will be live from what I understand.

The dvr caught it. Stoner's crash was just weird, though fun to see (not a stoner fan). His back tire just let go and the bike went spinning off the turn. Low Side from the rear as if someone pulled a rope.

So what did they find out last year? That he is lactose intolerant? This year it seems he went with the nonstick tires. Just as you hear "Stoner is the fastest out there at the moment" seconds later "Stoner is out..."

His front tire didn't load under braking. He pushed the front and the rear just snapped out. Great grip at back, though. Glad they resolved the excessive tire spin.

Despite being one of my favorite riders, it’s no secret that Edwards is getting a little long in the tooth. One hopes he has the good judgment to retire before he becomes, well, the next Loris Capirossi.

Thats cold, wow bad results for team Texas and everyone leaves them for dead, well not me, Ben will overcome, Colin yeah, not so much.

But what an effort for Nicky hes shaping up and figuring that thing out.

Jorge is finally grasping the maturity he needs to beat Rossi, lets hope he doesnt let go of that any time soon.

It's very early in the season and anything can happenin a blink of an eye but it's going to take the entire season to see it all unfold. One of the best things I love about racing it aint over till the flag drops at the last race.

I was happy to see Nicky do so well after such a long drought.
