That's why I'll watch it on TV this year. Last year was a bust and even with the promised changes, it tarnished my enjoyment of attending the races.

I think Hopkins has the talent to win. I think the Zuke is getting better. I think the racestones will be like Q tires on the new laguna surface. too bad.

Default New theory!

Edwards is so obsessed with beating Nicky after what happened in the Dutch GP that he will go kamikaze on him and both go out of the race in the last lap.

1. Rossi

2. Hayden

3. Edwards



The move to 800cc is smart.. Hope to see an 800 cc sportbike for the masses someday (besides the VFR).. Love to see Superbike go to 800cc...

Am I dense? I don't quite get the last paragraph. A "one-hour tape delay on July 30th."



Assuming it is telecast at 3:00 P.M. a week later, wouldn't this be a 169 hr. tape-delay?

Heck you'd think that such a racing expert would have actually been to a race or too.

I'm a good friend of the Sports page editor at the San Diego U/T. I'll call him and ask him if Bill Center drinks.



Good catch!
