Lorenzo Claims 3rd Straight Pole

3

Is it just me or have I chosen a good guy to get behind on my maiden voyage into the world of MotoGP?

The top six qualifiers look to be a great starting line-up for the Portuguese Grand Prix. Color me reactionary but I think Jorge is the guy of the season so far. I know he has not won but he his putting pressure on the likes of Rossi, Pedrosa and Stoner in his rookie year. I also realize he is from another series but he’s still doing great in my book.

Oh, and kudos to Nicky for 4th, here’s hoping he can claw a victory from the leather-clad hands of Rossi and Pedrosa.

I would say Michelin has the tire edge–just a wee bit
