Bottom line, Casey totally dominant, Spies catches up due to the rain, obviously had more grip, blows it on the last corner as Casey never gave up and laid it down, pretty simple really.

Anyone that has any clue about motorsport will know that its harder to lead and know how hard to push in them conditions than to follow the lead rider, even spies said it himself after the race, "When i passed casey i didn't know how hard to push", this lost him the race! Stoner simply outsmarted him today!Pathetic and Sad to see all the rossi fans jumping on the spies bandwagon to do their hating today!

Great race! Once again it shows how the rain can spice up racing! That race should've been Ben's. Cant still quite make out how Stoner got the speed at the last second, still looks like Ben's bike must've lost power due to an electronic or computer malfunction

Some people need to get their facts straight on the whole yamaha power problem, As yamaha themselves Keep saying all season, Its not a power problem they have, its their lack of rear grip coming out of the slow corners leading on to long strates hindering their speed! that was obvious today with spies spinning up leading on to the strate! maybe they should splash the cash and get stoner in to sort it out!!!

re: "Please give credit to Stoner, he was absolutely fantastic this year."

please give credit to the HRC boffins (and all boffins). they wore out their abacuses and slide rules R&D-ing new technology, repairing crashed kit, revalving suspension, pouring over gigs of data, and generally burning midnight oil to make sure all a rider has to do (most having bagged a full 8 hours sleep) was show up and ride. in how these unseen efforts and countless labor hours behind the scenes from an army of 10-20 per individual come together to make a rider look good, "THEY" were absolutely fantastic this year.
