I have a sneaking suspicion that this bike will have the #1 plate when 1000cc bikes return...

2011 aint even started yet and you're already talking about 2012
In order to have the #1 plate when the 1000's return, he will have to win THIS YEAR so he's actually talking about the results of 2011.;)

And I agree that Stoner will be a serious force to be dealt with. Ohlins better have their best front end guy in his pitbox every damn day so he doesn't lose the front twice a weekend.

The big 3!

These guys will be big trouble this year for the rest of the field. I noticed Termignoni is backing Honda now.

The one in the middle is nothing to worry about for a championship.

The one on the left will probably wad himself up and ride hurt half the season.

The one on the right might have a milkshake and get a belly ache, and decide to take a few rounds off. But if not, he will be a force.

Early, early days, but it's fun (and silly) to draw predictions out of this now.

Hondas looking strong. It's about time they come back again. I will love Casey to demolish Pedrobot, only for hitting back at Puig. I've actually grown to admire the little guy.

Jorge is man to beat, because Casey will be quickest but will crash again.

Vale looking good, IMO. (Don't laugh...we'll see! :) )

Rossi makes Stoner cry! lol

Jorge is the favorite based on his combination of speed and consistency as well as his resistance to Rossi Mind Games. But he does know that Rossi can beat him when it comes down to close quarters racing. If Rossi can stop his late race charges then he can keep Jorge under control but that is a tall order.

Pedrosa when healthy will finish on the podium every single race. He's a subtle threat for the championship and could win Nicky style if the others have a bit of bad luck this year.

Spies will probably be best poised to win once GP goes back to 1000cc.

Rossi needs to win this year or he might need to consider retirement. Especially If he has another serious crash. He should just shoot for race wins to beat Ago's record of 120 something GP victories. He needs to race 2 more years. He won't break the record this year but if he can race two more years and win the 2nd year while breaking Ago's record that would be BRILLIANT!

Nicky - Who knows. He's just riding around out there.

This will be a very interesting year. I'm now learning towards stoner but will cheer on Ducati (Rossi/Nicky) all year. I'm sure Ben will get his "Alien" status this year.
