Dutch Grand Prix in Assen (spoiler)

...that is all I can say...that was the MOST exciting race that I have seen in a long time. Rossi came out on top!! yeah ...he's back...Lorenzo is unbelievable finishing 4th after having his collar bone bolted together only 36 hours earlier..Crutchlow almost squeeks by Marquez but got a little greedy...I think I'll save this on DVR for a while and watch it again.......at the end...Rossi, Marquez, Crutchlow, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Bradal, Bautista....Hayden 11, Edwards 17th

I say if Lorenzo was at full health, nobody would have touched him. It would have been a JLo/Rossi 1-2

i loved it when the race was done, Rossi rode straight to his fan club section and the team carried him on their shoulders to the fence to greet the folks... Rossi knows how to generate fans/play the crowds.

I am much more satisfied with my boy Sykes on the ZX10R. Record Pole, record fastest lap, 2 wins with a good spankin' to boot!

Rossi rode a great race. Not a big Lorenzo fan - but he definitely got my respect after that ride - he would have been hard to beat healthy

That was a blast to watch. I dunno why, but I really just don't want Pedrosa to win the championship.

I don't agree with you, DP has been in MGP for quite a few years, he's had his ups and downs, he's progressed and grown up a lot, MGP has helped mature him. He's given it his all with every outing he has made. I think if he stays healthy and does not crash, this could very well be his last contract with Factory Honda and I would very much love to see him take a championship before he exits the MGP paddock.

Rossi was in top form this weekend, his latest testing sessions helped him find some great improvements, Lorenzo, well, he did a brave thing and rode a masterful race with a freshly broken collarbone with surgery(not many could or would be willing to do that, and I doubt he would have had his placement been less than the top 5 in the points chase). Cal Crutchpole, he's growing up and coming to terms with the MGP bikes as well, I can see him winning some races with just a little better eqpt in the near future IF Yamaha will just quit pulling there puds and hand over some better parts, it will benefit both at the end of the season and beyond. GOOOO!!!!!!!! CC

Times are changing, we have a couple of potential "New Aliens" and the CRT guys are coming strong, with Pol looking to kick in the doors of MGP and kick somebody off of their coveted seat, next year could be the most anticipated season yet, that is until Suzuki make there comeback and, I have a good feeling they will be playing for keeps as long as they have a good enough rider budget to afford the right talent to mount and race their newest machine.

MotoGP is back , WSBK was a total snoozefest this weekend at a track that has produced some incredible races in the past. Not sykes' fault, he was in a different dimension

But watching Rea stage that comeback was something to see in race 1. Too bad he threw it away at the end.

I love it when the two Hondas are running nose to tail and they broadcast from the following bikes angle and you get that orgasmic RC213V stereo sound

If we get Rossi and Jlo running nose to tail thats what I want to hear, even more so

I think crutchlow had the pace to take a podium but he waited too long to make a move and got a little desperate. Rea was similar in WSB race 1. After fighting his way back after his first lap off roading, I think he was letting his frustration from the mistake get the better of him.

yeah...Crutchlow deff. had the pace, but you gotta respect him not wanting to cut off Lorenzo maybe causing him to crash and possibly end his season...yes, he should have made a move earlier but JLo was riding a GREAT race...Should have been Rossi, Jlo, Crutchlow on the podium...
