"If you were true fans of the sport you appreciate the skill of the rides and not cry every time there is a race that doesn't have heaps of passing"

I dont think anyone who watches, has ridden etc etc (usual sh!te) doubts or underestimates the riders skill. Without any spectacle people will switch off. Motorsport at the end of the day is about making money. Presumably thats why F1 went to great lenghts to find a way round processional boring racing and have succeeded. Presumably they wouldn't of done it if there was no need.

@boris people are running out of things to abuse Casey they said put him under pressure and he would fall apart like a cheap watch,couldn't look after his tyres,just sit back and enjoy a sportsman at the top of his game if you can't appreciate his talent don't watch,if you want some manufatured entertainment go watch some trashy reality show

This site would most likely have better post if it actually had motorbike riders on here instead of Playstation Kings.

If you think that sliding both tires around a corner is boring then reset your playstation settings and give it ago.

This was not a borning race for those who are really into the tech side of racing but I guess for Playstation Kings or riders who only ride when its sunny or who only ride to get a coffee with a magic vest on (with the design on the back that your mum did) then yes you would think its boring.

FOr those who race and watch it for the tech stuff, it was very very good.

BTW, Congrads to Stoner, soon you'll need a pay rise to build a bigger trophy shed

How can people say its boring did you see Dani have a slide on first lap and Dovi pass Cal half way through race and .......and that was it. 3 races in and the ultimate bike racing show on earth has again not started. Not having a go at Casey he's epic simple as but people are right its the start of the end.

I've seen more overtakes on a track day.
