Great Race. Danny was off the line like a demon. Jorge smooth as ever and Casey showed good speed before his arm packed in.

Hope it stays close for the rest of the championship.

Entertaining start to the season. I thought Danni was a bit timid in the last few laps and could have given Pedrosa a hard time but still, it was a great ride by all three. The highlight of the race though was Crutchlow's brakes glowing red lap after lap as he tried to pass Dovi at the end of the straight.

Yeah the 3 week wait sucks!

And agree'd with Sparky, Dani was timid but certainly could have gone harder on Pedrosa... If only he wasn't fighting himself he might have had time to think about chasing Lorenzo.

Very entertaining race!!! Brilliant from JLo and Pedrosa! Stoner well... fast but couldn't stick it. I said last week sometimes he gets caught out by not running full distance race simulations like everyone else, I think this was one of those occasions.

Good show from Crutchlow. First thing you have to do is beat your team mate!

I didn't see anyone getting lapped? Is that right or did they just not show it? Seems the CRTs hung on then?
