Sounds good, its a shame we didnt get to see it though.

So, now that its safe to say Rossi has officially lost his Alien status, theres a vacancy and any of these 3 could get it, even if they are a little way off right now. Dovi gets it for me at the moment for his consistency.

indeed Lorenzo and Spies are the ones who pull out best from what they have to play this year. They simply don't waste any occasions to gain more points. Casey needs to work on solving tyre saving at the end of race with his technicians couse he may loosing the advantage. He can't proggres now and stuck.

GP FAN, an Alien is a consistent front runner, with the potential of winning the race. There was 4, but only 3 this season due to Rossi not being able to run with the top guys anymore. AD, MS and BS all have good pace, but neither has made it to the same level as the top 3 at the moment. I hope at least one of them can challenge the top guys soon though. They are all on equal bikes, so it just shows that they are a step above them.

Excellent ride from Dovi. I can't wait to see him regularly amongst the top 3.
The Alien term is still used because the 3 remaining are finishing 10 secs ahead of the 4th man. What word would could be used for them instead of Alien?

Spies tends to leave it till late in the race to start really flying- I always think it's a little too late in the race. I do like looking forward to seeing his form late in the race though... I wonder if the other riders feel the same.

I still want to know what that kick of the leg was... isn't that a motorcyclists way of saying 'thanks for letting me pass'?
