Qatar MotoGP: Stoner starts from pole

Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner will start the first race of the 2011 season on pole after setting the fastest time during qualifying today. Team-mate Dani Pedrosa was the only other rider who could come close to Stoner's time and will start from second on the grid, ahead of reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo. Marco Simoncelli set the fourth fasest time, after languishing...

Go Cal Crutchlow what a fantiastic start to his season wasnt expecting that postion on the grid

Rossi will move up the pack when the lights go out there no doubt about it.

Nicky hayden best sort himself out or he best start looking for a WSBk ride

Hector Babera should be on that Factory Ducati alonbgside VR

not much else to say bring on the race

What can the rest do?

I posted this on another forum and thought to repost here and see what you guys think..

Who knows what's to come over the course of 18 races, but if this Stoner and Dani parade keeps it up all season what can Jorge, Ben, Dovi and Simoncelli do to catch them?

I almost feel like they need to make a decision right from the very first race to stuff them up the inside and make them dog fight it out at every corner like Valentino did in Laguna...

Or I guess the Yamahas can see if they can find improvements elsewhere in the bike, but after a couple of 3rd places in a few GPs and they will be well behind.. This season proves very ominous for everyone, not on a Honda, who really would normally have a shot at the title this year.

Again I just think Jorge, Marco and Ben need to not try and be faster then Casey and Dani this year but tougher and more fearless. Bring on the race and go Spies!

My Predictions for Qatar:
1. Casey
2. Dani
3. Spies
4. Lorenzo
5. Dovizioso

Welcome aboard, deftjester …

Hopefully - not knock everybody else off and stuff-up things for everyone, including us!
First post I note – and you ride the Angeles Crest too. Please be well aware of murderous morons in cars doing illegal U-Turns up there. We don’t want you to end-up like poor, Andrew Trevitt of SportsRider, do we?
Speaking of tactics and Laguna Seca - surely, you are forgetting that Colin Edwards 3 on exactly the same bike & tyres as Valentino Rossi, did EXACTLY the same to Rossi in the Corkscrew during the USGP of 2005. It seems no-one remembers this ( or wants to ) and this selective amnesia is rather bizarre – especially so as it was a highlight in the racing movie and salute to the land of the free and home of the brave –“ The Doctor, The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid “…
You will find there are a lot of people with learning and reading difficulties, like dyslexia that haunt MCN. When these unfortunates encounter something they don’t agree with, understand or comprehend, their limited intellect means they are unable to construct a sensible rebuttal or even any form of factual case for their side of any debate, poor dears. Because of this – they resort to claims the words are too big and difficult, the post too long for their short, little attention spans, or leave a witless one-liner – usually misspelled. It is sad but you will get used to it as there is a lot of it about.
To celebrate the first post of another Yank here ( hopefully an intelligent and unbiased one) - I close with several timely and appropriate quotes from that great American, Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us.”
“ Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.”

“ Truth is the property of no individual but is the treasure of all men. “
“ Every hero becomes a bore at last.

Aquarius,1050cc & Defjester

I find your comment regarding dyslexics to be in bad taste. I have a brother who is highly dyslexic but also highly intelligent and talented in his chosen career. There is a huge difference between dyslexia and stupidity. 1050cc - I did read Aquarius's post the whole way through, as I tend to with all threads I post in. It's simple respect for another's opinion and the chance to learn something new that makes me do it. Or perhaps you prefer George Bush Jr style bullet points instead of well constructed sentences? Welcome aboard indeed Defjester.

True to form

Aquarius rears his ugly head and in no time the forum is full of spite and shit stirring. Riddle me this oh wise one. What kind of sad arsehole has a second forum name like "Anonymous" ? Seems very clear to me that your entire purpose on this website is to create discord and bad feeling amongst people wherever you go, spewing poisonous shit like an ulcerated sphincter. And I'm not the only one to notice.

What seems particularly sad about all of this to me is that someone who claims to have as much knowledge as you do, could use said knowledge to inform and entertain. But instead you use it only to create division and negativity. Utterly pathetic and entirely unnecessary.


Seriously, what is your problem?

I wonder how much of a "satellite" bike that really is. But well done to Simoncelli none the less.

Wow, Aquarius, you do have a lot to say, you wouldn't be single by any chance would you!

Let's not get off topic and slag each other off, we are all bikers after all. Lets not jump on the Rossi vs Stoner bandwagon, they are both huge talents. I am Rossi fan and have to say I don't particularly like Stoner. However, I will not bad mouth him and I acknowledge just how good a rider he is.
As for the racing. My worry is the gaps between factory bikes. Is the Honda really 1.5 seconds a lap faster than the Ducati? If so is this going to be another procession season, I hope not. Moto 2 for me this season I think, by far the more entertaining racing IMO.
