MotoGP World Championship
« on: June 21, 2009, 05:25:48 am »
So who is following this championship? What teams? Thoughts on this season so far?
http://www.motogp.com


Well no prizes for guessing I follow Ducatti's Casey Stoner of Australia. Stoner is a Former World Champion (2007) and currently tied for the lead with 6x and current reigning World Champion, Valentino Rossi of Italy and 2008's Rookie of the Year, Jorge Lorenzo of Spain. they all sit on 106 points, 37 points clear of 4th place. This year is a close one.

Last weekend in Catalunya (round 6 of 17) they finished 1st - Rossi, 2nd - Lorenzo, 3rd - Stoner.

Next Race:- Assen, Netherlands next weekend 27th June. Can't wait for that one!

No TV, so hard to follow the GP here :P
But I've seen a race or two, at friends, and some (great! ^^) video summaries on youtube :)

Those guys are all extraterrestrials xD

Managed to catch a bit of the 250cc this weekend, it was great. They stopped the race because of rain, and before the restart some riders changed from slicks to wets about 3 times because the rain kept coming and going. It was pretty funny to watch.

Not so funny for Stoner though, the BBC coverage said he came 4th because of tire problems. Am I right Tod? Plus, who won the 250cc? xD

On an extended IYNO break... for now.

Well the Championship is motoring along with the top 4 still fighting it out. Despite Casey not racing due to his mystery illness, he's still hanging in there in 3rd place in the championship, though it doesn't look like he'll get back on the bike until the Portuguese GP in October so it look like it's Rossi's year again for a 7th World Championship.

1   Valentino ROSSI   ITA   Fiat Yamaha Team   212
2   Jorge LORENZO   SPA   Fiat Yamaha Team   162
3   Casey STONER   AUS   Ducati Marlboro Team   150
4   Dani PEDROSA   SPA   Repsol Honda Team   135

Impressive comeback for Casey Stoner! With 2nd place in Portugal, Victory in Australia and Victory in Malaysia since his 3 race absence due to the mystery illness, Casey is on fire. Can he win the final race of 2009? Finger crossed :)

Congratulations to Valentino Rossi for claiming his 7th World championship title!!!!!
