they just sound stupid for track names, it sounds like they were to lazy to think of a better name.

Good for 93 though! I think the Honda's are going to be hard to beat with their advantage of speed. Should be a good show. I gotta say though, although Marquez unseated fast Freddie as the youngest winner on pp, Freddie was dealing with a monster of a bike compared to today. They didn't have TC or a bike that continuously tires to 12 o'clock itself all the time.

And the winner is Marquez, followed by Pedrosa, then Lorenzo. I'm not surprised since they had the advantage of testing here about a month ago.

Did anyone watch the slo mo comparison of Dani and Marc when they were close to each other during the race? That elbow was down, but the bike was still more upright than Pedrosa's, thus showing, and taking, hanging off to its natural progression. And the paradigm shifts again...
