MotoGP 2012 testing begins
sneak peak at Ducati, can JB and Vale pull it out the bag?
Even bigger challenge than when he switched from Honda to Yamaha.Posted 6 years agoHadgeMember
We really need Ducati to pick up from last year as otherwise it could be a dull year. At the moment I can’t see anyone challenging Casey or Dani for the Championship but I’m sure Jorge will be very very close behind them. Not sure Ben has what it takes to step up to the next level and be a contender for the whole of the season but we will see.Posted 6 years ago
I also think Cal has his work cut out at Tech 3 with Dovi next door and Bradley hanging in the wings. If Cal doesn’t cut the mustard this season I’m afraid he will be out. Can’t wait though and I’m really really looking forward to it!2wheels1guyMember
I can’t see Rossi retiring without some success on the Ducati, think he said 2014 for hanging his helmet up.Posted 6 years ago
I think Casey will dominate. Don’t know how effective Dani will be, has his spirit been broken with multiple injuries? Will he throw it into a breaking zone full pelt? He only seems to win from the front & can’t really fight for a win.
Jorge should be good, don’t think Spies has it in him to be an ‘alien’
I agree this is Cals last year unless he out rides the tech3 machine, Dovi could add to the pressure.
It’s good to see more bikes involved, it was looking very shabby with a skeleton grid.
Can’t see the CRTs been up there, but I think regulation changes will be tailored in their favour.
Looking forward to it although tinged with sadness that Marco Simoncelli won’t be there, this could’ve been his year.CrellMember
Honda will dominate,Yamaha will push,Ducati will be pushing the front
bringing up the rearand Rossi will retire at the end of this season…Cal is on borrowed time,without some good results he will go mid season.Its all getting to be a bit of a procession
Agree about Crutchlow, he needs to deliver. It’ll be a tough year for him. Will be interesting to see how the CRT bikes shape up now.
Sic will be there….

Just watching that vid, I wonder how much is genuine full on redesign after they finished the Valencia tests in October last year vs tweakery.
If it’s as much as they seemed to suggest that’s quite a leap of faith. Briggs looked a bit nervey 🙂
Can’t wait for the season to start (along with WSB)…unlike my wife 🙂Posted 6 years ago
