16. Ayrton Badovini (Kawasaki) 2'01.238

Corser out qualifying Haga, Biaggi and Xaus out qualifying the works Ducatis, only one Honda in the top 10 and that's ridden by a WSB rookie, Badovini top Kwak and Sofuoglu realises its a big step up from WSS but still out qualifies Rolfo!!!!!!

It's going to be an interesting season ladies and gents, roll on tomorrow morning. My monies going on Haga for the championship this year, there won't be a more popular champion.

My money is on Bayliss personally, he's motivated to win on three different type Ducati's (916/999/1098) and he'll retire as the champion if he wins. Haga will be close behind him though I'm sure.

Impressed to see Xaus up there, and Corser finally happy with the bike? I hope Biaggi does well this year too, despite his cocky attitude, though I'd prefer to see Checa beat him; he's a better rider and a better man IMHO.

Is it a case of track knowledge being more important than skill or is Kiyo just not as good as I thought then? Out qualified by both of his team mates. Shocking!
