I thought it takes time to be certified as an alien, or even to mentioned in the same sentence. I guess not today in the fast moving world.

Heh, I thought the same when reading it. Last year "aliens" were the guys who managed to win a dry race on an 800cc bike. That's not possible anymore. But lowering the standards so that riders without a podium finish qualify for it? Meh...

I try to make the captions a little entertaining, rather than strictly factual. I wouldn't read too much into the captions I use on photos...

wouldnt that be 'fifth' alien or has rossi's crown well and truly slipped now haha!
i couldn't take that status away from lorenzo, pedrosa or stoner on current form...

and I was just commenting my lack of approval for that particular caption ;)

Still love the pics and find most of the captions entertaining. I'm not your wife, so you don't have to take much care of my criticism, haha.

edit: dang, this one was supposed to be in reply to David's reply earlier.

Would be great to have Scott show comparison shots of Marquez and Stoner at the same spot in a corner - their styles are so similar it's eerie.. and Scott's photos are so damn good.
