The race was a real upside down applecart, that's for sure.
It was great seeing Cal get his first win.
Re the Lorenzo double pitting, I found a good interview on motorsport.com titled "Lorenzo explains mystery of Brno pitstop confusion" that explained what appeared bizarre, wasn't.
The missing chunk of front tire was in the contact patch position when he pitted, and his crew thought the front tire was A OK.

CalC winning on a non factory bike was A+++ ..... moto 3 > madness as usual with Binder just wetting out ... moto 2 was wet but not crazy ... Corsi ... boring was not a good descript ... a better one might have been EARLY & LATE SURPRISES IN THE WET ... i stand corrected
