Yeah, hopefully Colin gets a good start. Nicky is fun to watch when he gets bunched up in the front as well. Then you have the Dr.

Kenny and Nicky looked like they were having some fun getting it all kinds of sideways!! Kenny SHOULD have been fastest again in the afternoon.. Last lap with the time just about expired, Kenny was almost .3 underneath the fastest time, but he caught up to Elias or Melandri (can't remember, but it was one of the Fortuna boys) and he pretty much had to abort the lap. Bummer. He was talkinga bout it back in the garage with his mechanic.. You can tell he was pretty excited. Haven't seen him that animated in a loooong time. It's all relative though. An animated KRJR is still a zombie next to Rossi.

Not sure what happened with Nicky near the end, he was looking pretty fast for most of the session. Most of the riders sat out for the first 10 - 15 minutes because it had rained at the end of the 125 session. Nicky went out with intermediates and entertained the crowd with some cool slides. Hopkins was waay fast too and a nice surprise on the final lap by Chris the V who came out of nowhere to end up 5th.

/me loves teh MotoGp.

I really would like to see Nicky win the championship this year. I've been a fan of his for a while. But I also think it'd be badass to see Rossi pull out a championship win this year after all the problems he's had this season and some people saying he can't pull it off. GO!!!!!!!!!!

And that Pedrosa boy can frickin ride a bike can't he?? He's fun to watch. I can't wait to see how he does with a little more time in MotoGP.

Pedrosa's kinda boring to watch compared to say Capirossi or Hayden who get the rear tire sliding all over the place. His style is like a surgeon, bland but effective. All of them get the job done though...but Rossi is still king, especially at catalunya.

QP will be interesting!

I like watching Pedrosa downshift! Holy freaking fast!

Hayden sliding that thing around is awesome. That's the kind of stuff that gets people excited and watching.

Of course, Rossi is the man. So fast. Makes it look easy.....that is of course when his bike doesn't decide it's tired of racing before the race ends!

I watch it on Dorna motoGP live feed, 30 bucks per season. Qualifying and race is always live vid.... free practice... sometimes. I try to catch the free practice vids when they get posted up on the site. If you can wait you can download the race videos from google a bit after the race.

BTW, hopkins and hayden are the first men into the 1'42"s in FP3, 30 minutes in. Hopkins and suzuki got something up their sleeve in spain?

Yeah, KRJR is turning in more consistent laps than hopper...or most of the field for that matter. If he qualifies well watch out for the junior on race day, he's loving that new chassis.

If you don't want to pay for the subscription, you can click on 'live timing' and watch the umm.. live timing screen.. Just names and lap times. That's kinda fun too. and it's the ONLY option because not all sessions are live streams. Well worth the money IMO.

No kidding, did you watch the last 5 minutes?? Rossi and Pedrosa are really battling out there for bragging rights. They've leap frogged 3 times on the time sheets...maybe this race will come down to Rossi vs. Pedrosa, finally!

Yeah.. great stuff, but I'm not ready for Pedrosa to challenge the king. Let him wait until next year at least. lol
