Yea thanks for the reminder!

Only bad thing about CBS is if you miss it (and forgot to record it...) there is no replays... like speed does :(

Thanks again!

Free Practice - Session 2 (combined times)

Combined times, the only carry over from Session 1 was Nicky Hayden. Don't know yet if he had another crash, but he was 14th overall in the second session. Everyone else got faster. Not a good start for him if he's looking to capitalize on the momentum at Assen.

A surprise in the top FIVE is the Dunlop-shod Tech TROIS Yamaha ridden by Sylvain Guintoli. The kid is making a mark and it's good to see. He has talent!

1. Casey Stoner AUS Ducati Marlboro Team (B) 1min 22.737 secs
2. Valentino Rossi ITA Fiat Yamaha Team (M) 1min 23.083 secs
3. Dani Pedrosa SPA Repsol Honda Team (M) 1min 23.366 secs
4. Sylvain Guintoli FRA Dunlop Tech 3 Yamaha (D) 1min 23.387 secs
5. Carlos Checa SPA Honda LCR (M) 1min 23.413 secs
6. Marco Melandri ITA Gresini Honda (B) 1min 23.430 secs
7. Alex Barros BRA Pramac d'Antin MotoGP (B) 1min 23.548 secs
8. Colin Edwards USA Fiat Yamaha Team (M) 1min 23.613 secs
9. John Hopkins USA Rizla Suzuki MotoGP (B) 1min 23.645 secs
10. Randy de Puniet FRA Kawasaki Racing Team (B) 1min 23.667 secs
11. Chris Vermeulen AUS Rizla Suzuki MotoGP (B) 1min 23.683 secs
12. Loris Capirossi ITA Ducati Marlboro Team (B) 1min 23.687 secs
13. Alex Hofmann GER Pramac d'Antin MotoGP (B) 1min 23.856 secs
14. Makoto Tamada JPN Dunlop Tech 3 Yamaha (D) 1min 24.090 secs
15. Anthony West AUS Kawasaki Racing Team (B) 1min 24.106 secs

17. Shinya Nakano JPN Konica Minolta Honda (M) 1min 24.208 secs

Gonna go out on a limb here and say there will be some crucial crashes this race due to the surface. The new surface has created some nasty bumps in crucial transitions and overtaking areas. Hope none of the top 3 guys go down due to the surface.

Stoner's on pole, but I don't have the times... He gapped Pedrosa by 0.004. Melandri is 3rd, De Puniet 4th, Hopper in 5th, Rossi 6th (his qualifier didn't last a full lap) Colin 13th and Nicky is in 14th because he set his time on a race tire.
Hope this isn't a repeat post.

Well if anyone can do that it's Rossi, but he better find some more race pace because as of right now he doesn't have the pace that stoner and pedro have. LIke I said though Rossi is Rossi and he will find a way to get up there and battle with pedro and stoner. I am expecting to see them 3 again at the front but whether he can pull away from them I doubt it. Nature of the track really brings in close racing. should be fun, I can't wait.

Yeah, put the dudes from speed channel on CBS. Give them a contract like the "Let's get ready to rumbleeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! guy.
Those announcers make the race more exciting just by their enthusiasm. If they were to televise the MotoGP on CBS all the time, I would have no reason to subscribe to speed channel.

Current live timing...

Stoner is dropping like a stone currently running in 6th place. Hopkins is dropping too, much like he does in the second half of a race. Dani Pedrosa is MILES ahead of everyone and will probably bring home Repsol and Honda's first win of the season, barring no accidents.

and that is wot happened...

D.Pedrosa
L.cappii
N.Hayden
C.E.
C.Stoner


the bridgestones fell apart except for capirossi.... he held it together, nickyy was flying and dani was out and out quick!!!

well, rossi just overcooked it too early on a very very hot surface, lost the front at full lean, not a hard fall but enough to put him out.... rest of the race was a bit of a prcession but smooth riding by everyone was a pleasure to watch!!
