As for Pedrosa, he's dead to me. Nicky did get very lucky. But it will all start over again with the 800cc bikes. There will be new riders at the top, new machines with different power curves, etc. Anyway, can't wait until March 10th, 2007, first MotoGP race.
i am with you on that . look out for kenny roberts jr next year

On straight away runs Nicky was the fastest guy with the fastes bike. Weight doesnt make a difference if you have the power to over come the weight issues. Its about time that boy showed whos the KING, very talented rider.

Taking nothing away from Nicky....as I am an American and it's great that another American is on top again. However.....time will tell if he can win the WC again. Honda being the big dog on the block......finally threw enough Hondas at Rossi to barely dethrone him. Next year will be a telling tale as the 800cc bikes run the races. Enjoy Hayden......we'll see what you got next year.
