This is one of Colin's favorites, he does well here. A top 5 finish would be good for him. But it's already looking like it will be the Dr., Biaatchi, and Capirossi again battling at the front.

what is biaggi's excuse now? Still on the 'non-factory' bike, but doing well. When he doesn't win, it'll come down to the bike, AGAIN...

Good for Colin, some epic battles at assen... I really like that place too! Bayliss is a half second back, he knows the track well too, I see him doing well this weekend too.

This is going to be a great race. I really hope the Cube can hold out and bring Colin home. Nicky is doing well also. Good to see a rookie at this level focus on consistancy.

You know it's bad when they interview Doohan at the last race and ask him about Biaatchi whining about his bike/parts and Mick the great says 'What else is new'. Ah man, that is bad, makes Biaatchi look like a real turd. Rossi need to ride with the blow up doll again, classic.

I was reading over at motogp.com about edwards. Supposedly he was having bike (be them mech or elec) problems all afternoon, but despite that, still qualified 5th! Lets hope he can get a good start!
