Loris Capirossi is on a hot streak. Three straight pole positions in three straight races. Since he went on to win the last two races, are we seeing the new rising star? Valentino Rossi won the championship last week but there are other positions up for contention in the championship points race plus much to be proven as riders set themselves up for next year. Ducati has to be extremely happy with Capirossi, not to mention he has already renewed his contract for next year.
This week Valentino Rossi is once again starting on the front row in the third spot with Sete Gibernau between them. Could be another great race.
