**SPOILERS INSIDE* MotoGP Alice Grand Prix de France Race Result



This weekend the big dollar, glitz and glamour world of tanned spanish boys, lanky italians and grumpy aussies continue to coward country. More than eating frog legs, drinking wine, smelling of garlic and nuking small atolls in the southern oceans the French sure know how to party and enjoy their racing. Anyone that heard the roar when Guintoli and de Puniet took to the front last year, just to cowardly take the easy way out and crash much to the delight of all brits in their greasy sofas, know what I mean. Anyone who has been to a track in France to wittness the madness during a race weekend clearly see why France is a country of wild strikes and no one working at all.

Anyhow. Who will win and who will bin it?
Amazingly West seems to still have his ride and I guess that he is hoping for a downpur of Burmesiana magnitude in order to have the race cancelled and him staying for one more round.
Will Stoner bounce back or will his team adjust his bike to his dislike once again?
Will Lorenzo put in a new amazing pole time and will he last the whole race?
Edwards will fade during the race and Pedrobot will beat his teammate.
Rossi you wonder? He will need to get rid of some Le Mans ghosts as his record the last two years have been close to catastrophic. Is the GOAT done or has he started to regain "his" championship?
Tomorrow we will once again start getting results that we think we can understand and predict the race outcome totally wrong again.

It´s only five so even you could answer at least 20% of them.

Holy crap!!!
Dude that 1st Paragraph was funny as hell in all the wrong ways! LOL

I am however disappointed with the second... if you are going to be an equal opportunity offender, don't be showing up in here with only 66.6% American Bashing... You left out Hopper and I might just be inclined to start thinking that you are giving him the benefit of the doubt... Now go forth & correct your mistake, before I draw up any further conclusions LOL

Seriously... I know this season has had 4 diff winners already... a fifth would be great if we are to have another run away at the front win. But who has the capability to do just that?

Of the 4 winners, I have no real favorite to see be the 1st to get their 2nd win... but a 4 way battle to the end (ala WSBK Monza) would be just awesome! But I won't hold my breath.

Now we all know that 1 of the 4 leading men is likely to win this round. But let's hear your picks outside of the great 4... who do you think has a chance?

I forgot to start it with "pardon my French but"..I don´t have any clue to what I was trying to write or how it came out at all to be honest.

I actuially like Hopkins quite a bit to be honest. His problem is that there are too many riders taht are that little bit better than him, and still on unsuperior machinery.

In the dry I have a really hard time to see who could get a win from the "big" four. But we have soem former GP-winners in the mix so it is not totally impossible as Capirex, Melandri and Hayden have won before.
In the wet it is a another story with Vermeulen needing it like crazy to rejuvenate his career.

`Everybody asks me and Colin why he does well in qualifying and not so well in the races. I honestly don´t know, but he said something to me after China. He spoke with me and said `I am going to win the French Grand Prix,´ recounted Poncharal after the qualifying session.



Sorry guys but I have a hard time stop laughing.

Well at some point, he's got to fucking figure out how to put a race together. I mean, it's not like he's never done it before, so WTF gives?

Oh yeah, I know... he ain't that good... whatever...

Get it done already, Colin!
