    This looks like it could be a snoozer unless The Bowling Ball takes out Mr. Smooth.

    That was painful to watch. Maverick totally held up Rossi during his best qualifying lap, dropping #46 to 7th.

    Gah!

      Pedrosa behind Petrucci?

      Gah!

      maybe we will get to see the Rossi and Pedro working their way through the crowd to the front and of course, by then, the top 3 will be long gone

      Gah again!

      After that run by Lorenzo I wonder if we will hear complaints about the tires if he doesn’t win tomorrow? I could have easily won if bla bla bla (Spanish for blah blah blah I’ve read)

    Interesting, how far apart the two top team’s #1 & #2 riders qualified.

  6. Pacer says:

    If someone doesn’t get in front of Lorenzo early…

    Maybe his future teammate can mix it up with him.
