Pedrosa came from nowhere to go fastest
It was Rossi, Stoner, JLo and Melandri for most of it, especially when the circuit was very wet!!

those ****ers make redgate look easy

craner curves are awesome,
everybody tells you not to shut the throttle on the way down cause it loads the front but as you approach that transition half way down your clacker is telling you something very different

The Doctor holds court

Jlo shows off his paintwork, the riders were encouraged to produce a hand drawn picture for the Riders for Health Charity auction, most asked for paper and crayons, Jlo asked for a canvas and oils someone paid $3000 for that

Kid wants Colin's leathers bad!!!!!

Randy Du P gets the females lit up

Race predictions:
whist I want Rossi to win I don't think he has the set up,
he's fast on the soft tyres but not matching Jlo's or Pedrosas pace on the harder tyre they're expected to use for the race.
If dry:
1) lorenzo
2) pedrosa
3) rossi

If wet:
1) Rossi
2) Lorenzo
3) Stoner


A 990 (Pedrosa) still holds the lap record so I'd like to see that get smashed too

damnit.

what's with the good guys crashing out in first place. spies in race one and vale too!

although in ben's favor, his crash wasn't his fault. he was on his way to a double. rossi just ****ed up in the wet, just like JLo's stupid looking crash.

Man, what a race. Ups, downs, brilliant riding ability all around!

Dovi was incredible and shocking imho! And Rossi fighting back to 6th???

I loved the commentary as Rossi et al were LAPPING Stoner!

Weird race but fun nonetheless, now I can say I've seen everything. People lapping Stoner, that was fun.
Sorry for Vale and Lorenzo, I am really happy for Colin, he could have pwned Dovi if Randy wasn't such a d*ck.

I dunno man, I think RDP was riding perty well! CEII passed him once and RdP got him right back, that's racing.

I would have loved to see CEII win this one, he deserves a win after all these years. I think his time will come this year *hopefully*

@ R. DP for the podium and putting a satelite team on the box

@ Edwards........he almost had it.......I was squeeling like a little school girl at the thought of him winning it.
