So far I can only think of one rider that will surely podium at Indy and that would be Jorge. He deals with pressure very well and knows that he must pull his season back into the hunt for the big prize. He might not finish first but he will be on the podium.

I predict several spectacular off's. Indy has always produced a large parts bin. Dani and Jorge will need to be careful. Unfortunate since Dani has been strong here with some regularity.

Exactly !!! Figured JL would be the safe bet since he needs to make up the most points

Lorenzo has never done well here except i think it was 2010, i doubt he will podium. Its a honda track, all about power. Ill be there, obviously i hope pedrosa wins but im going to say its a marquez pedrosa 1 2.

predictions? i'd love to be proven wrong but i'd be surprised if we witnessed a thriller. i'm afraid that indy just isn't a track that necessarily produces good motorcycle racing.


+ jorge and dani will need to be extra careful, so i wouldn't be surprised that if vale and marc caught up with them , they would both let them go and settle for points. the interesting question for me is whether the seamless gearbox (if it will be used..??) will bring a obvious improvement so that the yam guys don't lose as much (if anything) under acceleration





1. marquez


2. Pedrosa


3. Rossi


4. Lorenzo


5. Bradl


the rest

You guys are really going out on a limb - Marquez, Pedrosa and Lorenzo on the podium. Incredible stuff.

Predictions:





All riders are going to complain that it is a shit track. If they're European, it will cause a outrage among the yanks and Jumkie will call for their heads. If they're Yanks, it will be ignored.

A real limb walker that will not only pick the top 5 but give their finishing order. Anyone else have the nerve to give us the finishing order of the top 3? How about the absolute winner? Remember when you choose that most think of Indy as a track that produces carnage. You need to pick a rider that won't fall down.
