You're right mate, the Yamaha is blitzing the others through the corners and this is why it could be a good year for Colin as well as Rossi! How do you think Stoner is going to handle a WHOLE RACE full of corners at a quicker speed this year? Can't see him doing very well as a bull rider either.

That's 204.8mph in '06 to 201.8mph in '07 for Stoner. And 200.8mph in '06 to 192.6mph in '07 for Rossi. The corner speed these bikes must be carrying to slow down top speeds yet blast by lap records is insane. At the same time McWilliams is up at the top of the speed chart, but his lap times are shit. Shows that going fast in a straight line isn't the key to a winning setup.

top speed is something sometimes

yes but today its what took stoner to victory he was pulling away from rossi so quickly,a few more corners and it would of been rossi's victory
he caught up on every corner but was out powered by the ducati grunt
someone needs to tone them down a bit lol.

casey did race well today althouh i was supprised he stayed on his bike as he is king of falling off i wonder how much moneys worth of damage he caused to his bikes last year,hopefully this year he will learn to keep control on the corners and not fall off, althouh he does seem to ride well with the ducati.

According to Julian Ryder, Stoner had 12mph on Rossi by the speed trap.
