Itís been a good few years for Spanish sport with Spaniards ranking every bit as well in the MotoGP as they have in the football. Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo have now been joined by Marc Marquez in making up the top three of the 2013 world standings. Only Rossi and Stoner previously seemed capable of breaking the Spanish monopoly, but Stoner is now retired and Rossi is possibly past his best.
The recent Mugello meet saw Lorenzo creep towards the top of the table by defeating his nearest rival, Pedrosa. Pedrosa has fallen strangely short of winning the title in the past, and it may come down to a test of nerve for a rider who may feel like fortune is against him. Many would say that the smart betting money is on Lorenzo to retain the title with generous odds of around 7/5 as oppos..... [read more]

Video of the Moment
und a bisserl Northshore ;-) mit Loschi und Pauli Song: Ghostwriter by RJD2.
I was MTB down some awsome tracks, during summer (australia). I was with friends, so naturally I wanted to impress, especially as I am a lot smaller than they are. Anyway, we were going doen this hill pretty quick, and we noticed something that we thought could be a drop. The others slowed down heaps, so they could pull up and examine the drop. So, I decided that this was the perfect oppertunity to show them that size doesn't matter. I didn't slow down one bit, and shouted at them, "What are you doing? The drop won't be very big". So, in all my glory I sailed over the edge doing the best trick I could think of at the time. They said it looked unreal, but it didn't feel it as I looked down at the 30m drop and piles of rocks and stones at the bottom. I survived - just- with a broken left arm (in 4 places), in total 56 stiches, a shattered ribs and concussion - I was better after 1 month in hospital. Anyway, it didn't stop me from still trying to show off to my friends who are still bigger! At the time I was 14 years old, now I'm 15, so it wasn't so long ago. ..... [read more xsession files]
