    Will be interesting to look back at the end of the year to this thread and see how it fared.

    So a sixth for me
    Well Badger & Spoons

    I'm with Legs on this subject.

    I think a 1st and a 4th at least this season.

    Faster tracks will flatter the bike and tight ones will show it's weaknesses imo.

    Nakano - top 8 race by race if he's lucky. should have given the birth to an up and coming rider.

    Biaggi - blows hot and cold and his mental state will dictate his results as much as anything. tends to start stronger and fade off so if he gets a result it's likely to be earlier rather than later.
    If he has a shocker he will spit his dummy out and blame everyone else and his dog.

    The one thing he has which almost no one else does is a development budget so in theory the bike should get better but historically Biaggi is to bike development what Gordon Brown is to pole dancing so my expectation on that point is not high.

    6th for season finish for Biaggi with maybe the odd individual flourish, Nakano around 10 -12th with odd break into top 10 race by race and fairly anonomous.

    I think overall over the whole season you are near the mark with both of them Spoonz

    What i meant was... Do you think at this stage they could get a win and a place inside the top 4 between them? At any Round...

    E.G.
    Max 1st Shinya 2nd 3rd or 4th or REVERSE way round
    Shinya 1st Max a 2nd 3rd or 4th place.

    Depending on how Nekano takes to some of the new tracks he has to learn.
    But then Spies has to learn a few too eh.

    You don't seem too confident with Nakano, I thought he seemed a better rider than you seem to take him for.

    I'm starting to have doubts now about my pairing in the Fantasy Leage.

    honest answer -nope

    Not convinced of a Biaggi win though podium is possible and especially not Nakano to do anything noteable.
