Amazing how someone can actually disagree with some of the plaudits being given to JLO. Well once a leghumper always a leghumper. Guess no one liked JLo stealing some of the spotlight today. Glad JLo showed what he is made of. Dani the fight is on.

That is very humble of Jorge to make the comments about Valentino. Let's not forget that Jorge was 1st a Fan of Vale and not a rival. Of course racing changes your attitude and you focus only on yourself or you might as well walk away now.

I think Jorge has won a lot of fans with his determined bravery, It could of all gone wrong, It didn't, He rode a great race and Kudos to him. I sincerely hope that Rossi keeps improving the bike and joins Jorge more often up the very front and the great racing continues, As this will keep Moto gp right up there and interesting!!

I had him pegged for beating Dani, a shame Lorenzo faded though, I dont think Lorenzo is as good as he was in 2008 though, I think hes been softened by the control tire and ego inflation.

That said, at least he showed up and got the job done.

@ Bozz

It was an incredible effort by Lorenzo, to overcome the anaesthetic and pain and race on the same weekend as surgery is amazing. But a plated/pinned collarbone is possible to race with, many riders have done it. The finger injury last year stopped Lorenzo racing because they sewed it back on, but it wouldn't have taken the punishment had he tried to race. Usually ankle or leg injuries are worse wfor racing because they stop the rider effectively gripping the bike in corners. Have done a bit of track riding I still don't know how Stoner got 4th at Indy last year with the ankle thye way it was.
