    Ofcourse! when there is rain! there is a chance for Ducati! Would be interesting to see nicky taking the podium before he bids farewell to Ducati!

  2. Bill says:

    Heck with a podium let’s root for a shocking win!

  3. irksome says:

    Two sitting Ducs clogging up the right side of the grid. Lovely.

  4. Jose Polanco says:

    Can anyone explain how the Ducati is quick in the rain but mediocre in the dry? It is the same in WSBK.

  5. Viceroy_Fizzlebottom says:

    @ Jose

    To quote Kevin Schwantz: ” I use to love the rain because I felt like it made my motorcycles exactly the same as everybody else. At that point it turned in to a rider to rider battle. ”

    The rain levels the playing field

  6. BackSlash_cu says:

    Interesting to see, only the two Repson Honda run over 300

  7. jet says:

    Dang where and how did that Hayden pull it out of his butt,lol….Kentucky Kid you go bro!

  8. Jose Polanco says:

    @Mr. Fizzlebottom

    Thank you for that. I should have been praising the former Kentucky world champion rather than thinking it was some type of traction control wizardry.
