    Fantastic race between Hayden and Dovi. Also poor performance By Stoner. Sad that Motogp is almost over for the year :(
  5. MotoGP 2009

    All news regarding the 2009 season in here please.
  6. Bring it on !!!!

    I reckon Dovi shall do well this year, mind you he dnt do too bad this year (08), but i reckon he'll be on the podium more often thats for sure.
  7. how will Stoner take to the new bike after the surgery? Is the '09 calendar out yet?

  9. A mate who lived in Holland reckoned the Assen track is the best on the calendar.

    Funny that ... a couple of Dutch blokes I know who are mad into their bikes and bike racing say Assen is the worst event, so they never go.
    Gotta admit I was always tempted to go, but since I talked to them about it I have never quite been sure whether to or not, so I still haven't made it there.
  11. go anyway then we can get an honest opinion.

    yep. sounds alright tho. concept works for me. just have to wait and see now.
  15. This goes at the cost of the ss600 class.
    I dont like it at all.:pissed-off:
  16. Its rediculas IMO.

    Like what do they think World Super Sport is ? Thats 600cc, whats the point in having another 600cc class.

    They should of stuck to the inital idea 2 years ago of a 450 2 cylinder. Lets face it, they is only Honda who have shown interest in this now newly named "Moto 2", its just going to be like a single make series by the looks of it.
