Ok, I've been hating on Pedrosa since the beginning of time, but he sure did put his balls out there today. I couldn't believe a couple of those passes he pulled on Marquez.

Yeah, gotta give him his dues for that race, he was right on it - Rossi did a good job too, but MM just looks comfortable at that pace, and waits for the right time to make a move.

Meh... Turdrosa is just not that good of a rider. Did you see him almost take out Marquez? That's not the sign of a professional rider at the top of the world ranks. He makes a lot of mistakes like that the most infamous was taking out Hayden while he was on the verge of claiming a world title. Don't forget another of his greatest hits when he got caught cheating on nautical captains test LOL

He's got some speed no doubt about it, but lacks something, other than a MotoGP title I mean , that makes him worthy of being on a top factory ride... The real truth is if he didn't have a Spanish passport he would have already been out of the game.

The Kid is cool under pressure. It's not like he thinks "Second would be an okay finishing spot."

Assuming you are referring to Marquez. When you are a god among aliens you don't have to worry about finishing second at all...
