Intense battling between crutch rossi n marc with great close up footage! And what a crazy crash at the beginning race. To bad for lowes since zarco rarely causes these kinds of incidents

Probably easily half, but he wasn't way out in front and leaving the pack behind either, could be have? sure, but did he didn't. In many ways you could say 2014 was the counter example to this season. The rules enhancing a mfrgs strengths versus trying to negate them.

Now with a common software the electronics are functionally the same, but they are not 100% identical as mfgrs can have some free devices and sensors differnt than others.

Suzuki immediately said the software for this year was an improvement for them over what they had before. While yamaha and Honda moaned about going back 5 or 6 years.

That said Suzuki built a great motorcycle and Vinales road flawlessly. So I give them full credit even if they did benefit by the new rules package.

Baffled by Iannone's arm pump leading to his crash. Sure the circuit has got really bumpy but Colin Edwards was saying the best way to deal with that is a light grip. Maybe not on a GP16. He was flyin' to that point.

Also baffled by Marquez and his best attempts to throw half of his championship lead away in one go................................................ ..

THIS. Really not sure what he was thinking. Once he passed Rossi, he should of just tried to keep his head down and settle in for the end of the race by leaving CC alone. However, it was pretty flipping epic! I guess MM felt like he had to let it all hang out. It reminds us that he is only 23.

Suzuki and Vinales

Tire choice payed off and he put his smooth riding style to use. Excellent pace and even set a new race lap record. Those passes were like buttah!

Quite the opposite from Sam Lowes in Moto2. He rode the wheels off that thing and bit off more than he could chew. Impressive win by Baldassari!

You can't just say "Pedrosa". You have to say it like "JEREMYPEDROSA!! JEREMYPEDROSA!! JEREMYPEDROSA!!"


Geeze those announcers were annoying. Yes,,,,the midget won. We got it.

It was a good race though. Looked him up and he's supposedly only 5'2"
