**SPOILER** Sepang GP

Rossi
Pedrosa
Dovi
Nicky
Nakano
Stoner

Good race for the first half watching Rossi pressure Pedrosa, but then he checked out and the race was on for third. Nicky had it, then ran it deep and Dovi got by him. One more for the season, then the switch to the stones and testing. Good season IMHO, good to see Rossi on top after a two year absence. Switch to the 'Stones should make for some closer racing and also make SSRC John insufferable......

No doubt

I was on the edge of my seat for the last 4-5 laps when Nicky was making a push! I thought he was going to be able to hold Dovi off, but I guess it wasn't to be.

I was really disappointed in Stoner as he looked like he wasn't really pushing too hard.

Rossi is so patient, what a performer he is.

Good race.

Hated to see Nakano make it all the way from 15th, and then have to watch Hayden and Dovi check out on him. Great ride by Hayden though......looks so much more consistant than he did earlier in the season.

How Rossi does what he does.......is unimaginable. Practically flawless every race......

Seriously, I'd preferred to see some type of competition at that level, but your right it should make for some CLOSE bar to bar racing...ala World Supersport.

I hope he keeps the momentum for the Duc next year. He will be a force in contention of the podium every race if so!

Did I see Spies finish like 15th? Or was I drunk?

You were drunk, he didn't race. You probably saw the overall results where he scored points in two races. Jamie Hacking is on there too.

After watching the last couple of races I've got new respect for Rossi. The guy won the championship three races ago and he is still racing as he was to lose it. That is great about him.
On the other hand, after looking how Rossi trashed Pedrosa this weekend, I don't think single rubber will make a difference. My guess is that both Stoner and Rossi just ride at a different level.

My sister think I belong in the looney bin after yelling watching Dovi and Hayden battle it out. I was really hoping for a podium. I can't wait to see what he does with Ducati. I see it either being a great move, or one filled with disaster. Here's to hoping for the best.

I would say that Pedrosa is up there with them also, and just below them would be Lorenzo, they are all good riders to say the least. Pedrosa kicks when he's 100%.

not sure what happened to Stoner this race other than maybe he knew he wasn't going to get the win and decided to just take it easy, not push too much and get ready for the up coming surgery.

I was at work watching it on MotoGP dot com on my lap top. The other guys were like, "WTF are you doing over there" as I jumped up and twitched in my seat. I think they thought I was having a seizure or developed tourettes with all my unintelligible noises and motions... not to mention the profanity...

I think the unjury just caught up with Stoner.

I was so hoping that Hayden could pull one out of the hat, but it was a great battle.

What can you say about Rossi that hasn't already been said.....

Yeah, it was definitely pretty amazing watching Rossi just stalk Pedrosa and then go past and pull away... he was gapping half a second for the first 4 laps after he passed Pedrosa! That's insane...
