I wonder why Nicky's bike doesn't seem to be as fast as Stoner's in a straight line....I've been l
watching that for the las 3 races....and yesterday there was a moment when Nicky was behind Melandri maybe 1 bike lenght and couldn't or didn't go by him. Forget about turning and all that....the Desmo is still the fastest or 2nd fastest bike in a stright line.
I think he's coming to grips with the bike....I hope Ducati don't chop him after just 1 year.
Maybe because Stoner won the championship in his 1st year on the bike they set their rider standard to that....
Anyway, great battle and hats off to Melandri and Hayden!....oh shit!! did I give away the results?
