Rossi is feeling the pressure

It should be a good battle, Dingo, The Nurse and Lolipop have very similar race pace.

Lorenzo only just nicked that
with 1.30 remaining i think it was capo that still top,
would love to have seen his lap,
did anybody catch it???
he must have been on the absolute limit to get the suzuki up there
look at kalio almost 342kmph through the speed trap, yet last, he must have that geared for the straights and nothing else

Lorenzo did 9 x sub 1.50 laps, 7 on the trot I think it was, no one is even close to that, I think rossi did 3!!

I may have to agree with you on this one. Although i still say GO DINGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Lets see if Lorenzo can keep his pace, we've seen him before. Dingo mechanics - please get that bike ready and don't screw up, Rossi - please turn the pit speed off, we know you are nervous but it is race time.

The Doctor does not get nervous when he goes to work

Great performance by Dingo, i saw his race over before the bike change but great pit change and great first fast laps out of the pits.
Rossi is feeling the pressure, who is cracking now? Lorenzo is killing him not to mention Stoner.
Great Job by lorenzo after the crash lol
Dovi was about to make Rossi cry even more
Great for Edwards to take JT in the final laps

I thought it was a great race! After so much crappy weather it seems that the teams are putting things together now Much better changes and strategies with pitting/ bike changes.

I felt bad for Capirossi (a little), but man Lorenzo absolutely blew his doors off for the pass!

Attaboy for CEII, I bet Toseland is crying right now...

I like to see these technical races making them decide when to switch bikes. Makes it a little more interesting.

To Edwards for putting it infront of Toseland.

I really thought Caparossi had a shot this weekend to put it on the podium. It looked as though he was going to make it......but couldn't keep pace.

When they made the switch over, that killed it for Rossi. Stoner dropped the hammer right away, and Dovi was already flying.

I was like this --------> after Melandri started going backwards. I was really hoping he would stick it on the podium. Oh well......he still rode the of the Kawi, showing just how good he really is.

What's next? Cataluyna?(sp?) Always some good racing there!

Moaner was gifted it















he rode brilliantly and his team performed flawlessly,
his comments about the slipping clutch reminded me of foggy

I'm so at Rossi's team I can't tell you
they cost him that race imo,
he got the start and was fkn awesome on the wets,
he overshoots the bike changeover window by one maybe two laps imo but after france who can blame him!
so what do they fkn do,
lets see, the race is approx one third done, the track is damp in places and the surface temp is much cooler than it has been in the dry practices,
I know, lets send him out on hard compound front and rear slicks that are good for race distance in the searing heat ??????????????????
WTF were they thinking
beggars belief
so everybody else except toejob (who pitted first and much much earlier than Rossi) is on soft/medium fronts & medium/hard rears except the main man
check out the outlaps and first flying laps,
rossi is 3 to 5 seconds slower than those around him whilst he tries to get some heat into those things.
total **** up

Lorenzo and the sighting lap
oh dear but he recovered brilliantly
At the start, I think he forgot to turn on his launch control, don't you

Did you see the 250GP race
best race of the day inc WSBK
