Good to see Stoner has put the Ducati on pole for the first round of MotoGP '10!

I see even more riders are adopting the 'dangling leg' off the peg going into a corner. Can anyone tell me how this helps? Two feet on the pegs seems like a good idea to me :thumbup: but then I'm not a racer........

I "vote" surely for Mika and to his Ducati.... :) I hope and pray that he is best Ducati driver after official team.. Maybe he beats also Nicky Hayden in some race :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: New "big bang" engine can be good for this year, as its smoother that previous year modell engine :thumbup:

some say its a bit like a motocrosser putting the leg out, for balance, some say to get some weight in and forward to help turn in, some say just to freak out the opposition!

Whatever the reason, it didn't help keep the Ducatis on track :( Hayden dragged off too for 3rd place :mad:

I love Ducatis, but I'm with Valentino :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: .
He's the greater rider of all the times.

There was already some rumours about it... we have to wait.... :)

I think, Vale have allready practiced enough those Moto Gp bikes, that he can also handle "difficult" Ducati and such combo would be very nice to see in tracks.... Anyway soon Valention is "too old" to Moto Gp, so it should happen in very close years, no matter Vale is now very fast(still)... :mrgreen:

Vale is still upright. He did not have bad accidents, so I guess he can even have many good Moto GP Championships.

He is in good condition just now (still), but You will see in close years, that younger guys are pushing him too much, so he "have to leave", or do something else. But honestly he is still enough young to make very good career after he stop to race, so he dont have any money problems in future and i quess, we shall see him in some team in very high position later years... we shall see it.... Anyway he is also one of top drivers in my scale.... maybe best just now.. or should Casey be best?...hahahahahahahah... No war, guys! :mrgreen:

Btw, Frankie, as You are Italian(and U know Italian "inside things" better), tell us something about Valentino's girls/women!!! I havent seen so much, that he is with some women in REALITY(real life), so i am quessing, is he "normal", or no???? :mrgreen:

Valentino tested for Ducati before he took the deal with Yamaha. I believe the main reason he didn't sign was Ducati were more demanding of his off track time for publicity and functions to promote Ducati. There was less pressure for this at Yamaha and at that time the team were less competitive and he was able to build it up around him. I would love to see him ride Ducati for a season or two at the end of his career but that will not happen soon while he is still winning at Yamaha. Being a "Kiwi" I don't like to see Aussies win but it seems Stoner is the only one who can take the Ducati challenge to Valentino - when he doesn't drop it :mrgreen:

Cheers, CB

I don't care about gossip, so I can't tell anything about Valentino's loves.
I hope he's "normal", rather, I can tell he's a sexy icon in Italy and an Italian master of sexy stripes - Milo Manara - has done many nice stripes about Valentino.
