I haven't watched the race but some multiple angles of the near finish incident between Rossi and MM. MM is carrying on like a brat child that thinks the other should be slapped by race officials. One angle shows how blatant it was. He was in too hot, stuffed up the inside, hit Rossi and lifted him up, almost lost it himself, gathered it up, meanwhile Rossi managed to stay on two wheels and salvage having been bunted. MM is lucky he didn't crash both of them out. Win or Bin rather evident.

Saw another angle.
Plus listened to MM's explanation and claim.
My amended assessment is that MM had a really good "berm line" set up.
As in Rossi being the berm.
MM has a record of pinballing...............

Kevin talks about the stuff that's behind the stuff that we don't get to see...

MOTOGP 2015: DUTCH TT WRAP-UP: Marquez may be back on pace, but Rossi proves the Old Men still rule.

Kevin makes such good reading.
He has a book of selected past articles over many years called Top Dead Center. (Centre for some of us )
It's a great read.

I finally had time to watch this race last night. SO GLAD I didn't read anything about it before-hand. What a fantastic race.

Good to see Rossi throwing down faster times than Lorenzo.

Just got around to watching the Moto3 race - another epic battle with 7 riders in the lead group, trading places the whole way through. And then this at the end...
