That's what real racers are about - good lad Marc!! A bit of pushing and shoving is part and parcel of a good race battle and should be accepted as such. Some would have had a right go and moaned like hell wanting penalties and fines and all sorts of daft things. We have some real riders at the front now who will do everything they can to win and who respect each other and accept what real racing involves - great stuff at last!!

ladies and gentlemen..

you are the lucky ones to see the rise of these 2 great riders in motogp, right from the early phase where they started finding their ground...

i know for fact that Marc will definately be a world champ, and the way crutchlow has managed to come out of the shadows of Dovi is amazing. i am sure he too has the right ingredient to be a world champ, provided he is on a factory ride,

but nonetheless performing like this on a satellite bike is just amazing...

there is a lot of lesson to be learnt from these two here.

great fan of both of u.....

Exacly m8.. Is that part that i dont understand, i think Cal is not beeing completly Honest about is complain of the fuel tank at the start of the races, he did the 3 fastest lap of the race and was not only this lap.. On the inicial part of the race he was allways very close on times sometimes even faster.. i think is probleme is more about the concentracion at the start and the fear of risk to much and crash, he start bad and then he had some riders to deal but he also have to give time to tyres warmup like everybody but i think that he didnt whant to risk was is optionr, wille Rossi whanted to attack from the start.. wach the lap times here and you will see that Rossi puch at the start but then when he get the 1 place he was just making laps constatly and when Lorenzo and marquez start to make there was when Rossi start to make laps a bit more fast just to keep is gap in control...

I have no problem with a little "paint swapping" on track.It livens up the races.
Its when paint swapping turns into "shoving riders off the track" that i draw the line.
You have to like Marc though,he has that cheekiness of youth about him.I think he is going to have a great career in the premier class.
