Nice hard but clean dicing. Great rides by the top three, and great finish by JLo and Mark. Props to Marquez for riding like that after the ugly warm up incident. Pedrosa caught the break-away, but looked like he shot his bolt doing it, and couldn't quite make it a three way fight.

Spot on, but still what an awesome last lap by Jorge! That's what we all want to see from Lorenzo......fighting back with everything he's got. Amazing performance by MM yet again. But Dani????? He just can't pull through when it matters most. Great battles down the field too, what a race!!

Good win Lorenzo! Scary what MM might have done if he was 100% but the same goes for Lorenzo with his injury back at Assen so do not forget. He is not 100% yet also but should be phyically better than MM who is fresh on his injury (but no surgery required so questionable who is in a worst position because JL may just not be complaining for fear of fans/media attacking him about whining/excuses).

Lorenzo has a titanium plate and 2 surgeries so lets not get crazy about MM not fully fit etc etc because neither is Lorenzo!

Anyway lets not take away from that effort of both riders!! great race....

Rossi is where I thought he would be but it was Bautista not Cal or Bradl who I thought would provide the resistance. I was hoping for a podium since Pedro seemed out of sorts but it was not to be.. next year maybe!!

@tedleaf at least your spelling and grammar is "original"... and your conspiracy theory with respect to Rossi's bike is pretty funny...I don't know how you guys keep coming up with new excuses. It's simple. He isn't as fast as the front guy, and it isn't the bike. It doesn't mean he's a crap rider, he just isn't the best, nor in the top three. His fans excuses make him seem worse, not better, but they're good for a laugh.

Jorge seems to have upped his game just a little recently and it is paying off. On the other hand, Dani is riding the way he always rides but the bar has moved up a little.

Two horse race now..

@GOAT46:

Nick Harris and Gavin Emmit talked about it during Moto3, allegedly they took 2 points off for not lowering his pace during the yellow flag situation with Crutchlow during warmup.

Edit: I just heard they were those "penalty points". So nothing is deducted from his tally.
