What is the point of the CRT bike you do not get to see them.
Last night race was between 2 people and it lasted halve and lap. BORING.

Rossi did not perfmor that well given the injuries an the crash which exclude them from the race, but I guess Rossi did finish

I'm fed up of all this talk of the world is going to end because Stoner isn't here. Yes it is a shame that he is missing and I hope his career doesn't end like this but he is not the first rider to ride seriously injured and he is not the first to miss out on the championship due to injury either. At the end of the day Stoner crashed on his own accord, it happens in racing.

Pedrosa and Lorenzo can only fight who is there and at the moment it is just between each other. Jorge has the advantage at the moment but you can see Pedrosa growing in confidence. It's going to be a close fight to the finish

As a Spartan I'd like to say "One of?" how about "The best" Great stuff from Dani and a class reaction from Jorge. throw Cal's podium into the mix and you have a good day for MotoGP I reckon.

Been watching motorcycle racing for well over 50 years and all this talk about it being boring and not as good as the old days is a load of pig manure. Doohan would get in front and dominate races and he did that for six years and won 5 championships. After that we had Rossi squashing all before him and rarely being bothered with a dogfight. In the "old" days we had Agostini winning some races by one or two laps!!! MotoGP is not about constant close racing. It is about watching the best rider sin the world do amazing things on the fastest bikes in the world. If that does not hold your attention then this is not the sport for you and never has been...ever! WSBK had more people up front because it is easier. MotoGP rejects, geriatrics and mid fielders go over to WSBK and start winning races. WSBK champions come to MotoGP and act as mobile chicanes. Put them all on 100cc Mopeds and there would be really close racing and lots of passing!

Yeah, motogp riders kick ass in WSBK. The only problem isthat it takes years to do it. Melandri, Biaggi and Checa all won the championship in their first year.

Oh and WylieCoyoto won the rest.

I was ready for a borefest and to my surprise the last 1/4 of the race was quite good. Pedrosa and Lorenzo put on quite a performance. Each using their bikes qualities and their skill. The Yamaha seemed more stable on the brakes where the Honda seemed better coming out of the corners and in the end Pedrosa used the Honda power to perfection.

We just saw what life would be like for motogp without casey stoner.i must admit im not a big fan of the guy but that was a snooze fest the whole weekend .even some of the comentators said that the weekend was just not the same without caseys straight forward like the responce or not attitude .If i was carmelo i would be doing all i could to get the man back on a bike. After all he did what ever he could for rossi to get a competative package for next year y not do the same for casey for 2014 and help ducatti to get him back on the bike .****** or not the sport needs him for his ability to mussel a bike around .
