Hey south!

So far half of the top 4 have tasted tarmac. Both Lorenzo and Marquez have bit it already, while Pedrosa and Rossi have been slower but stayed upright. The full pace at race distance will be interesting as the tires go off. Rumors that only the hard tire will be available because the medium is disintegrating on the rough surface. Almost a worse case scenario for Lorenzo who likes the soft, which isn't going to be available this weekend or in Austin. Might work out well for Rossi though.

Race day, a.k.a., factory Ducati yard/jumble sale outside turn 14 Motorland Aragon .

So, Lorenzo falls off, Marquez wins, and Rossi podiums with the help of his good friend and countryman Andrea Iannone--I think Lorenzo and Marquez should file a protest. Dovi might even back them up on that.

At least, with the points as they are now, should keep the c'ship picture interesting for a little while longer.
