Crashes all round for Tech 3 this weekend, with Bradley Smith also hitting the deck and Xavier Simeon suffering several broken bones. You just get the feeling sometimes that Tech 3's home event is cursed.

No shame in crashing in these conditions though. Both the MotoGP guys were pushing hard for the podium and it made for a great show while it lasted. I hope we get more battles like that in the rounds to come!

Cal & Dovi deserved better. These two are setting races alight on their own. Rossi showing his class to stay on under immense pressure and catch and pass Stoner. Best race of the year so far.

The battle between Cal,Val and Andrea was a nailbiter it has to be said.I was watching Cal in particular and said to my Mrs that he was pushing a bit too hard.2 mins later he lobbed it!
I was gutted.Talk about the curse of the commentator!
Shame for Andrea too,the T3 boys are riding really well so far this season.As Don said above,no disgrace in crashing in those conditions.Look at that photo on the left.Ducati filling in a T3 sandwich.Good stuff.

We all like to say that ifs and buts mean nothing in racing, but it does these two plenty of good to put on a show like this every race. Even with a few crashes they'll be a hot comodity for teams and sponsors next year. The camera loves them.

Well, we are nearly a quarter of the way through the season already. At what point does this total domination of Cal by Dovi commence?

Still waiting.....

@ pcxmac
How old are you??????
I have read your comments about Hamilton many times, you look like childish. You are talking nonsense. You can support someone, but to ignore the dignity of others characterized it is not a good call
