Great riding Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Stoner! It was said before the race that the tyres wouldn't hold out for a full race distancee. Perhaps Casey's practice of doing short runs won't be a good idea this year? Dani did great after a bad start. But Jorgez, great job! Cal Crutchlow? Well done lad, to him and Dovi. They put pressure on each other the whole race. Well done to both of them! - but especially to Cal :-) Felt sorry for Spies. People will slate him but after 2 huge crashes this weekend, his confidence was shattered. Well done Colin on the CRT (yeah right!) bike. No doubt the Rossi haters will have a field day. Finally, well done to Stefan Bradl in his first MotoGP race, he did great! Racer of the weekend? Pedrosa! Losers of the weekend? Spies, Rossi and Ducati... Casey, the lack of strength in your right arm is what comes from being married! Be single again and the strengh will soon come back...
