MotoGP Indy SPOILER

Well everyone i wanted to see do well had huge high sides. Stoner, Spies, Hayden... Rossi had a moment in same turn too but decided to call it a day than fight for pride with the CRTs.

Brigstone really the pooch on this one, and the season too. I guess we'll wait and see if the tires stay together for the race or once again of blow chunks like at Assen.

Ben was looking great on his run and was on pace for pole when crashed. Had he put together at least his best prior final sector with that lap, then QP may have looked somthign like this.

Sum of Best Partial Times

1 SPIES 1'38.668 (1'39.279 actual best time)
2 PEDROSA 1'38.813 (1'38.813)
3 LORENZO 1'38.849 (1'38.913)


Hope he can get better for race, and for that matter Stoner too. I'd hate for it to go uncontested to acouple of spainards.

That was one of the most violent high sides I have seen in a long time. Scary.

and Spies leads warm up to boot. This is why I'll miss these guys. Moto2 looking to be good also with Iannone up in the mix as well.

Watched the race today...hard to believe Stoner placed 4th after his highside yesterday. Spies looked good early before blowing his engine. What was up with Lorentho showing his foot to Rapp in the late laps when he had to pass him...dude's got a right to race too if MGP puts CRTs on the grid. Glad DP won, but like most MGPs it was a win going away.

I dont care for lorenzo but Rapp should have got the out of his way , he was holding him up . I felt bad for Spies he would have definitely finished on the podium

Hahaha I saw Lorenzo kick his leg at Rapp as he went by him, made my day. But yeah when I saw smoke coming out of Spies' exhaust I was bummed.

What is the deal with Ben's bike.... it cant all be bad luck if it happens with this regularly. It just doesnt make sense.

Did he blow a cylinder? What caused that much smoke?

Oil would cause the smoke. As for why, two guesses: prior crash damage gone unseento or sabatoge..... eithier would beyou in excusablethe for ayou factory team to miss..

Conspiracy is more belivable at this point.

I think it was that he rode down the interstate the night before at speeds over 160mph
