First 6 or so laps were the best of the year, I think.

Soooooooooooooo based on this race and the other thread with people saying MM rides too aggressive and is a danger....

Lets discuss the moves JL was making because that was on the same if not worse (intentional push out of pedrosa) yet this time its "good racing" ??

MM seems to ride like that out of shear habit, Jlo was trying to make MM make some mistakes, is it right? No!!!! Should be be penalized? Yes, only to be fair but it just doesn't matter at lap 30 now does it? Nope!!

It kinda doesn't matter now that it is over, and it didn't matter this morning, MM knew what had to be done and he did it, he could've easily taken the W too but, he played it smart for the first time this year. I'm glad to see that MM is the title holder, although, I wish Jlo could have pulled it off but, it didn't happen this race, it happened when he broke his CB.

This year, and today's race is exactly what we as fans need in order to stay tuned to the action, w/o MM this year, it would have been boring all year long, and even if CS had stayed in the racing, it still would have been boring w/o MM.

I hope that the changes with the riders helps make an even more exciting 2014. We should see more competitive finishes next year with the bike rule changes and the rider/manuf changes.

Exactly. Bunch of including Lorenzo that complain about MM riding style. Yet Lorenzo pulls this off.

I started watching this race thinking that Marquez's aggressive riding was because he is young and couldn't bear to bring less than %110 even if it meant rubbing. Then he goes and plays it safe, knowing he has the title cinched.

I liked that Lorenzo played a little rough also, if only because he is normally so clean. It adds a bit more humanity to his racing. You could see how badly he wanted the championship; when he finally gave up and put a gap between himself and the pack I felt bad for him.

Next year will be good.

I wish Vale would have been more in the hunt this year, but i think his time has come to hang up the asymetrical boots.

Im happy for MM though. The kid rides with heart. I appreciate that.

IMHO I think Marquez will repeat next year!

I love his style of riding, its fun for the sport!
Plus the kid, makes it look so easy. Big Cahones!

Last race, was the best race, of the entire season by far, Pedrosa & JLo battling it out was awesome.

Looking forward to next season.
