Looking forward to it, but it looks like a match between the Rossi and Stoner.
Moto2 - what a huge field, its kind of difficult to suss out whats what but it should be very exciting.
125cc - was the most exciting racing, but smaller fields may make it less so.
At the moment I like ..
Moto GP - Stoner, Outsider - Spies (will get better and better)
Moto2 - Simon (dominated 125cc) Outsider - Think Canneppa might run well.
125cc - Bradley Smith Outsider - Cortese hard to fancy some of the back markers from last year who fill the grid (Schrotter could also have his moments)

Stoner has to be 1/4 of a sec min quicker to beat Vale on race day - testing has shown he has no advantage - the opposite away from Qatar. Qatar is Stoner City so if he gets beat there its goodnight after round 1! Edwards has been banging on about the new Yam and the strength of the engine out of corners - the package is now complete and even the non factory team look reasonably competitive so Spies will be on the podium sooner rather than later especially as the Umpa Lumpa cant get used to Ohlins forks.The six engine rule dosent exactly suit the Bologna boys who have never built their lumps for longevity!

Moto2 is mission impossible! The fav is injured so care there. Agree with your comments.

125's Love Bradders but - I think Terol has his measure hope I'm wrong. The two Spaniards have been quick in testing - In Spain.....! Both crashers - not for me.

Looks like only me and you interested at the moment Snowy !

Yet for me the bikes are far more exciting than the cars.

Bikes beat cars easily and yes I agree with the above comments. Stoner although he has just beat Rossi in that last test has not done so by a big enough margin in my book.

Although I am obviously scared of a bet pre season on the 1st race I can't see how Rossi can lose.

Spies to get a podium has to be the real value bet if you can get some reasonable odds. Lorenzo is definitely out of it for a while and that spanish muppet Pedrosa is **ed (always hated him).

The only sad thing with this season is until Lorenzo gets back in on the action we could have some very dull races. Stoner and Rossi won't be able to entertain every week and one or other will always have an off weeken.

Moto2 could be real fun ;-)

Be careful guys. There have been some GP where Rossi has been as fast as Stoner in the FP sessions only foor Stoner to pull it out on race day.

Qatar & Australian GP last year.

Although there have been many ocassions where Rossi has pulled it out of the bag on race day & Stoner has crumbled - he still deserves more respect. Rossi has been ridiculously impressive in testing but Qatar is Stoner territory & let me be the first to say that he can be just slower than rossi in the lead up sessions & still win. Remember stoner's had to get used to the new engine as well & I actually beieve it's Stoner with a little something left in reserve over Rossi........but we'll find out in a few days.

This isn't like any other track & Stoner will be determined to make in 4 in a row.

And yes I don't know how anyone can say cars are better than bikes. I've been a greater fan of F1 in the past but this year I've realised just how much better the racing is in Moto GP & I can't wait.

About zero chance it flops as much as the opening round of F1 in Bahrain.

the pole position market not turned in play for the 125c/c class i presume any bets struck after 6.00pm gmt will be voided.

Vazquez as short as 3-1 Espargaro 7-4, Bradley out to 10-1. M2 Redding in to 9-2 and elias out to 9-1. Do you think the firms have over reacted to the 1st practice session of m2 and 125?

Got a few beans on Stoner @ 5/6. Vale edging in but I think he has a better chance in the race than over one lap. They look in a different parish.

there are some big gaps in the 125c/c class times it could be a poor season if this ends up the norm,hopefully the race will be closer than it looks like being.

sorry jc just logged back in. my advice on Sky - hitum hard the first couple of bets you have cos you'll get shut down or restricted to a few bucks. today they were 8/15 capirossi over melandri. a first timer would have got £1500 - I got £15

my gut said casey was going to bin it whilst leading. So layed $1000 @ 1.13 for a Top 3. Only $200 was taken & Casey pulled out a lead & looked unchallenged so I cancelled the rest of the unmatched bet.

Crash 2 minutes later. Gutted!!

Huge choke.....no pressure & he still bins it. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt though until we know the problem.
