Best race for a good long while in any class wasn't it
Craig Jones was unlucky, I had him pegged for a rostrum, too much aggression maybe
How fast is that Yamaha
Joan Lascorz is impressive isn't he, that's a privateer out there in only his second full season

Did you clock the lap times, WOW

Rea is the real deal

I got to see the race earlier today.... I can't ever recall such a tight race. It made 125 and 250gp look like nothin.

Oh yeah, those FIM commentators crack me up. They are almost as entertaining as the races.

I forget there names... but its an Englishman and an Australian if that helps. I start laughing my off when the races get tight and that one guy starts speakin English Ebonics.

NASCAR should have its own channel like the NFL network. There is so much great racing out there that doesn't get good coverage. If Speed was freed up from Nascar, it would make other racing much more public. They really do cut to commercials at the worst times

Yep.........cracker of a race!!! Honda Baby!!!!!!!! Then watched race 2 of WSBK and Notro Nori almost pulled it off on Troy. Yep i agree, WSBK is the best series for heads up racing right now. But here comes China and Rossi is pointing to the left feild fence.

I think the commentators are Chris Walker & someone....I can;t put a finger on his name. We get the same guys for motogp & WSBK. They make the races for me.
Here in the states, during the US GP's we get different commentary, IMHO they suck. one of the guys during the Laguna race couldn't even tell one rider from another. I don't even think the guy had a clue as to what was going on.

BTW I was pulling for Craig Jones. I think he cooked his front, as they said he went with a softer front than the other guys.

I thought Chris was injured, at least that was how they explained it. Who ever it is, he is a injured rider, and a name I easily reconized.
