  2. Edwards on pole

    He whas quicker that his team mate Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa.

    looking forward to a great day of racing!!! after my breakfast i am going in tv-mode and enjoy the circuit :)

    nevertheless, i am a bit sad that the track of assen changed so much the last years..

    as a little boy i went to the dutch tt every year with my dad.. sleeping in the caravan on the camping inside the circuit! going into the pitbox with tickets of my uncle who worked for EML
     
  11. What a great driver that Rossi.

    But in the wet it would have been a completly different race.
    But they hat luck all the way on a sunny Assen circuit.
    And Edwards ........I don`t know if he will be in the moto GP next year.
    My gues is that he will return to the superbike`s.

    SUPER race from Rossi... a real champ.... but stil 21 behind stoner... also a really great driver .... POEHEE!!!
     
  13. Well , Mister Rossi wont be to happy with the way this race has run for him.
    This well could be the turn arround in the championship.
    I personnely think`s he lost the championship on the sachsenring.

    Ok, what did happen, because i didn't saw anything of the race....

    Did Stoner win again and did Rossi have some problems?
     
  15. Rossi`s front wheel slid away from under him in a real tide corner where he made an move to overtake a other rider.
    He ran a bit wide an rossi realy drove the corner by the white inner line so the speak.
    And his front tyre could handle it,even the slide ocured in realy lowe speed he could not continue the race.
    That whas won by Pedrosa with Capirossi in second for Nicky Haiden and Colin Edwards in fourth place.

  19. Stoner fastest in free practice

    Casey Stoner whas fastest in the free practice in Laguna Seca.

    In the first 30 minutes Rossi whas the fastest.
    Then came Stoner and whas not to be beaten.
    After that Melandri and Edwards drove the 2th and 3th fastest time.
    This whas just before Alex Hofman whas torpedo`d by Sylvain Guintoli.
    The frenchmen whas way to fast for the corkcrew and crasht into Alex.
