Solid if unspectacular opening from CC. He kept it upright, brought it safely home without any mistakes and gained a ton of experience in the process. I think qualifying perhaps set up a few false expectations but he's got to learn not only to ride quickly at this level but how to race the other guys. But he did ok and will build from here. And credit to him for not mentioning the injuries again.

Good aggressive ride from Colin. I thought he might even hang with Spies for a while.

Colin may have been able to keep Rossi and Ben in sight but it took him too many laps to get around Barbera. Colin did pull off a text book overtaking move on Hector though.

A tough, hard fought race for Cal. Good finish by both of the Tech 3 guys.

I have a Brit to cheer, I'm happy. Cal rode a good, controlled race. Getting faster and faster but a very strong field, realistically 9th is the position he can hope to attain. He'll be trying for higher and it will come.

Colin, solid guy, great rider to have in your team.

Good showing by Cal considering his injuries, weird no one praises him for giving it his all with the Shoulder injury and finger injury, a footballer would be out for the season with that alone....

He does not even say if its costing him time, just gets on with it..

Good ride from Colin as well, think its a tough year ahead for the Tech 3 boys, too many fast factory bikes out there... Even tho last years M1's are good all the new factory bikes this year have improved again.
