Brilliant ride by Jorge! Probably his best this year, but still a long way to go in order to catch Stoner. Casey had a bad day, don't know what caused his struggles but I'm sure he will be back on top form next race. Can't wait!

Good races today and well done to Lorenzo that will boost his confidence a bit.
He will need to win every race from here on in with Casey doing no better than third in any of them to win the championship by 1 point .. sounds like a big ask to me.
I wonder what his thoughts are now on attending the Motegi round?
Casey looked happy enough despite not winning and was very gracious in congratulating Jorge for his win today.
Dani's pass for 2nd also shows the status of team orders at HRC e.g. none in place.

Great stuff from Jorge! Goes to show he has the 'right stuff' that won him the championship last year. Stoner like Pedrossa is fragile physically - that is taking nothing from from the 2 latter guys but Jorge was the 'man of the race'!!! Good to see Mamola and Rainey from the old days. Sad race for Caprossi and looks like Rossi should join him in retirement. He is not the rider he was any more. Nuff said!!!

When Stoner wins by a mile, he is accused of destroying the championship and should learn to slow down n make championship more colourful. When he does back down for safety reasons he is a moaner. Oh well, at least he is on the podium. And say what? Not gonna win the championship? Oh My God.

As a Stoner supporter it's a bit worrying that he wasn't physically up to it today. Close finish coming up i fear. Stoner more likely that Lorenzo to post a DNF at some stage too. I bet Stoner wishes he had those 20 or so points that Rossi took from him early in the year,

As far as Spies goes I wouldn't be too hard on him. He still needs to get his faith in the tires up early on but he doesn't have the advantage of prior data that JLo has and will take longer to get the bike dialed in.

He is improving and what I like is that he's a racer. He went for the positions, showed the speed in running down that pack and pushed them to the end. Brave pass on Rossi who had superior straight line speed. Couldn't do the same to the Honda's they get off the corner too well.

If I were to criticize it seems like he takes wider sweeping lines and invites riders of similar pace to go underneath and block pass. Then his rhythm is upset and they eek out an advantage. It looks like he could be a better defensive rider and maybe not lose those positions in the first place. he sure can close down on people once he gets comfy.
