    MotoGP about to start

    Hi all,

    Not sure if there are very many bikers on here or people that like bike racing but here goes.

    MotoGP will be starting soon and I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the champion this year?

    I am hoping it's not one of the regular guys but would love to see Ducati back on top. Getting a bit sick of Honda and Yamaha winning all the time.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this, Dovizioso to be world champ this year!!!

    Yep I’d like Vale to win it as well but due to the Yamaha having so many problems I think the bike will let him down more than his skill.

    be nice to see dovi win it and after getting so close to it last year he must be fired up for it but has lorenzo got used to the ducati or has it set up more to his style could be interesting .Marquez must be favourite again but wuld love to see one of the ducati factory riders get it but the person i would most like to see as champion at the end of the year would be dani pedrosa he seems a nice guy and always seems to play second fiddle to his team mates, whoever wins will have done some great riding and unlike f1 we will see some good battles and overtakes, cant wait.

    Not sure the vale will do it again, but I would like to see him getting the 10.
    I’ve got a soft spot for Suzuki too, so hope they do well.
    I’ve got my tickets for Silverstone so looking forward to that.
    Crutchlow will be writing up his book of excuses as we speak, but for what I hear about him in testing he’s doing well so fingers crossed. Always good to see a Brit on the podium.

    I don't think Crutchlow has the consistency to win the championship but I would like him to be on the podium a couple of time just to show Honda what they have missed out on.
    Vale winning a tenth title would be great but Yamaha are still having troubles with grip later in races.
    Suzuki on the podium again is a must but not sure which of their riders will get there first.
    Marquez is still the man to beat in my opinion, now that he has changed from his win or crash riding style he looks better every year.
    Dovi to go one better this year would shake up a lot of people especially Lorenzo.
    Really looking forward to this year but won't be at any tracks due to my working rota.

    Owned GSXR's up until recently and ran the UK's biggest GSXR forum until it got hacked and corrupted.

    Would love to see a Suzuki win it but given that this may be Rossi's final year I'd love to see him win

    Sadly I think it will take something special to stop Marques ...

    been reported that rossi has signed to yamaha for another two years so who knows 10th title is possible but he has some young competition to beat first , hate to say it but i think he'll struggle to do it
