granier, that's it exactly
coverage shown over here from anywhere else is first class, even live coverage from as far away as Australia and South africa but the WSBK from the US is poor

Moto GP sucks right now. 16 riders? If one guy DNFs, everybody gets points. I hope Ben does at least 1 more in WSBK and another American or 2 join him.

I thought the video and commentary left much to be desired.
Too much ground level footage. Was hard to tell one turn from the other at times.

Yay for camera work designed to appeal to a NASCAR audience!

WHAT A BORING RACE, both of them. Not so much for the race action but for the commentators,OMFG, to be honest i muted the race or fast forward many times, holly cow i was like shoot me please, i was so mad, my girl was cracking up watching me curse at them.

Great Job for Spies getting closer so we can have a closer battle. Spies should stay at least another year to be Champ in WSBK if he can't make it this year.

Too bad he can't jump on a full factory bike on GP cause he will not shine as much, lets hope they change that rule for 2011.

Go ducs!!!

Some true on that but Ducs were not that bad this week, no one could touch Spies although he did mention Fab gave him some good runs but maybe just to be polite. Haga was done, good for him to get some points.

Race 1
3
8
9
11
14
etc
Race 2
2
6
8
10

I think the ducs did "ok," but maybe less than can be expected with the talent they have on top of the bikes. Granted, Haga was riding hurt. Just my personal opinion. Ducati definetly has the machine to beat, I just think its lame that the reason thats so is because they have a displacement advantage.

eh? Fabrizio was within reach in race 2... Haga was riding hurt/bruised.


It was Ben that neutered the field. Not the altitude.
