@ kkk

Did any of those guys in front (Besides Bradl) have a fractured, excruciatingly painful ankle...?
Did ANY of the Ducati's start in last?

The Ducati seems fast enough in the hands of Hayden, his tyre just destroyed itself (Funny, isn't that the problem Casey's having?) So I guess the Ducati isn't that bad.

@kkk guys ride with broken ankles all the time this is granted, however!. Lorenzo had a better finish with the FACTORY bike from the FRONT of the grid. Cal was on a SATELLITE bike from the BACK of it. Correct me if im wrong but Lorenzo didnt break his ankle the day before the race either. It's an epic ride from Cal, no 2 ways about it. He had the confidence to get up from a huge fall and get back on and push it to the limit again. He's a bloody hero :)

What can one say only that it was a bloody good ride
and result for cal. If he had started front row i have
no doubt he would have been on the podium.
I agree in total with ben suden

I apologise if this has been said already but what was the TV producer thinking about? English bloke putting in the ride of the day (even without his injury and lost track time) on an English track and got no coverage. Passed all the CRT riders in 2 laps!!
