Well, its been a while, but I'm puttin' down my horsesh*t opinions on the worlds best(and worst)racing series. The expected has occured since the last write up, with Rossi and Lorenzo being the majority of the winners. But, come Mugello, the tables were turned. Rossi didn't have the race he wanted, Pedrosa crashed(suprise, suprise!!), and that allowed the rest to pull away and have a decent battle in the dry-wet race. Both Dovizioso and Capirossi battled hard, in an attempt to win their home race, but neither of them could keep Stoner from what he does best, and that is, well, "Stone"in' the field! He proved once again that he is a sort of freak of nature, being the only man to regularily tame the Ducati into the race-winner it has the potential to be. On the subject of Ducati, the next highest finishing Duc in the ItalianGP was Niccolo Canepa's Pramac satellite machine, bringing him his best GP finish to date. Finishing the Ducati round-up, was Mika Kallio and Nicky Hayden. Mika is learning, but, damn, what is wrong with Nick? He went so well in pre-season but has floundered so far this season on the Duc. If he wants to stay a Duc factory rider, and keep possibly his last ever chance at a factory ride, the Kentucky Kid better step up his game. And, finally, the rider that consistently impresses me is Andrea Dovizioso. This kid has real, true potential, especially if Repsol Honda and HRC can shift their attention from Pedrosa to Dovi. Pedrosa is in a rut, and his spot is already being rumored to being up for grabs to another Spainiard, Alvaro Bautista, from the 250's. Till next round,
