The guys got raw speed, much like crutchlow.

I'd like to see him in motogp as soon as possible. I know world superbike is better to watch, but those days of "win in sbk first" are coming to an end. If you're young and fast, why should you have to waste years in superbikes first.

Someone offer him a ride, and let's see what he's made of.

6 different manufacturers in the top 10 grid positions for tomorrow!! The championship leaders in 4th and 5th place on the grid ... this is nail biting racing!! And we get two races in one day. WSBK rules in racing and excitement at the moment :)

Ya, he's a real one lap wonder. What does that make the 20 riders behind him in points? How did he get all those points and podiums if he's only fast for one lap?

I hope it never happens. Motogp is a waste of time and talent. If you don't have a factory Honda or Yam there is no hope. And since both sereies race big bore fours, might as well stay in the series where there is real racing on real motorcycles.
