They should get excited after they actually beat either of the Yosh Suzuki guys. Coming in third is nothing to crow about really.

Fantastic! Too bad they have not done so well in AMA racing.

Those Ten Kate guys are like Yosh Suzuki here. What would make the racing real fun is watching Erion field a Hayes piloted bike against Amerian Honda. Don't the Erion guys have a data/parts deal with Ten Kate? Thought I read that somewhere. Anyway, Hayes deserves the shot. Nothing against Zemke, but he got his factory gig and now has to pull the back-up slot. Hayes had impressive momentum coming off FX and SS championships- give the guy a bike and let him see what he can do.

Right on! I should have crabby ranted about their overwhelming success in AMA racing! Maybe after getting their asses handed to them again this year, I can mention it? Anyone taking bets??

What's the bet. Gotta be modest- I'm poor. My predictions-

Daytona- Spies 1, Mladin 2, Hodgeson 3
Barber- Mladin 1, Spies 2, Hodgeson 3
Cali- Duhamel 1, Yates 2, Bostrom 3
Infineon- Hodgeson 1, Spies 2, Bostrom 3
Miller- Spies 1, Hacker 2, Hayden 3
Road America- Duhamel 1, Hodgeson 2, Mladin 3
Laguna- Yates 1, Spies 2, Duhamel 3
Mid-Ohio- Spies 1, Hodgeson 2, Mladin 3
VIR- Hodgeson 1, Mladin 2, Hacker 3
Rd Atl- Mladin 1, Spies 2, Hodgeson 3
Laguna- Duhamel 1, DeSalvo 2, Mladin 3

I know some of these are double headers but in at least one of the two races the order will be as picked.

HEY! SOMEONE WRITE THIs DOWN>

The less the merrier! Cheap tix, easy to get a seat, no lines for beer or the head. What's not to like? I'm going to check out some Daytona action when I am down there. Plenty of good seats left!
