It's honda's title to loose.

When I saw the articles title
Yamaha Assen Press Release: Disaster For Lorenzo
I thought JL dropped his bike on the right
side and a wide open throttle trashed another engine.

Crutchlow sets pole on a "satellite" bike, and still isn't signed to a factory ride? Wtf?

Lorenzo has to pass a physical tomorrow morning to see if they will clear him to ride. If he does ride I expect he will start from Pit Row using his 7th engine of the season and retire after a lap or two. If he is in no shape to actually win the race or garner points he can still take the burden of a pit row start and have a new engine to use later in the season penalty free.

A top 5 finish like this in MotoGP would be worth seeing - check the times!

Vale back on podium! Nice. Dont know how Jorge rode, he has balls the size of grapefruits! Incredible watching them push him on his bike into the garage. Respect...

Talk about having a set that clank when you walk.

I have DirecTV. Motogp is on Speed channel, and WSBK is on beIN Sport. Set the dvr and relax.

BeIN channel has 4.5hrs of WSBK, mostly without commercials, on race day. That's both races and a couple of the smaller classes. Fantastic coverage.

AMA is now showing CBS Sports networkHD and they are really trying to add some production value to the races. Barber reruns start at 5am.

MotoGP on Speed absolutely SUX once you've seen the full program they butcher from MotoGP. The $$$ I pay for the MotoGP website access are a real bargoon once you've tasted the complete program. I watched Assen live as well, on MotoGP. Live or later, tough to be beat.

I never gave up on the Doctor.
I had him pegged for podiums and some wins, and year end finish of 4th and maybe even 3rd.

I'm with ya man, do the same with PC and have the phone app! I don't have my pc linked to my big screen though, so I settle for Speed on the TV, and get ALL the goodies on the pc. The extra access and vids are well worth it.

I hope he continues that way and starts vying for the top rung of the podium every race from this point on as we need more front runners in MotoGP, but in spite of the media hype one win does not mean "Rossi is back to his winning ways" or "The Doctor is back"

Well said.
At least The Doctor is back with A win and one that was in the dry, so no one can claim Wet Maestro wins in the wet.
