Fully agree Frankie, Edwards was on a roll towards the end.
Dovi fully deserves it though, he even slightly upped his pace towards the end and was in control, flawless performance in extremely difficult conditions.
Doing that on slicks where others crash and some even come in to switch bikes is nothing short of phenomenal :)

Well done to Dovi, it's nice to see a non arrogant Italian on the top step. This guy is a real talent and a nice guy. I would love to see this guy become a real threat in GP, we all know what will happen if he did. He would be bashed by the Rossi sheep.

It was so difficult that even the favourites couldn't do it Cedric,
makes Dovis performance even better. Or de Puniets or Edwards for that matter.
Randy winning on the satellite Honda would have been very sweet as well :)

Good job for Dovi to keep it on two for the win, and I'm glad he put it in front of Dani! But you have to wonder what the Hayden-Haters will say in light of this win by Dovi. Because according to them, Dovi picked up this win the Nicky Hayden way... that is, other people had to crash, Rossi had to have bad luck and other riders had to make huge mistakes.

You really are talking pish, you seem unable to recocognise arrogance for confidence in knowing you are the GOAT. Good news for Dovi though. Wrong again Yard not all Rossi fans are sheep!

Congrats to Dovi for this one.

Can't stop having the feeling though that RdP and CE were very happy with their podium and just did not push for the win. Not taking away anything away from his win though. Remains to see if he can challenge for wins on fully dry conditions. Sth much more difficult.The more the merrier, right?
Oh, in my eyes his ride is safer than Pedrosa's, at least for next year.

Even though I was pulling for Colin to take the win, I can't say I'm displeased with Dovi. He was brilliant fromt the start - I was floored by his pace!

And I know I'm going to take a bunch of heat from the Rossi brigade, but I honestly think he looked really comfortable behind him and wasn't losing ground. It's hard to image him winning over Rossi in a scrap (Rossi is too good on the brakes) but he may have been able to pass and pull away. It's obvious he had a bit in reserve when CE and Randy caught up to him.
