Looks like a wet race.... looks like we are in for a cracker just like last year, could be Rossi's chance of a win.

The wet is the big equaliser always, and you generally see who can really ride. In normal world, Rossi in an interview I read in a mag yesterday admits himself he doesnt know if he could keep up with Jorge and Stoner if he was on a yamaha, so people claiming Rossi just aint got it no more should probably stop trying to prove a point, Rossi is a lot smarter and cooler than you all.One thing though is its a shame we cant see him have a go. Maybe this weekend could be the race of the year in that respect if the weather comes in.

Nicky can win in the wet. I will put a few quid on that! How many US dollars is a quid anyway?
