I wonder if fly boy will make this race he is in a wheelchair right now. Take some brass ones to ride the way he was. Most of us would have been at home licking our wounds.

Yeah I saw Dr Costa must be giving him some good stuff. Looks like Pedro and Lorenzo show might be back on. Nicky needs to find something in the way of set-up. Colin will have the tractor beam pulling him backwards all race. Oh well hopefully it will end up being a good race. Go Fly Boy

I have a feeling I jacked up my picks for this race. I only had a couple of minutes to devote to selecting and don't feel too good about what I've got up. First time for that.

Anyway, let's go racing!

I would be glad to change your #1 pick. OK?

Yeeha. Damn Edwards actually got on the podium and Stoners bike craped out. I could have had bookoo points.

Maybe I should say for a MOTOGP race it was good!

I thought the Rossi charge through the pack was outstanding... and Danny boy even made him work a bit for it...

Lorenzo's move through the ranks was also nice to watch... although less eventful!

I liked it... You must be getting spoiled by WSBK!

I thought the Rossi charge through the pack was outstanding... and Danny boy even made him work a bit for it... Again, that happened in 4 to 5 laps (you watching on SPEEDTV and wasting 20 mins between Commercials doesn't mean it took that long )

Lorenzo's move through the ranks was also nice to watch... although less eventful! Less eventful because we didn't really see his progress until he was on top of Turdosa, I would have welcome his progress more so then watching the top 5 seconds apart.

I liked it... You must be getting spoiled by WSBK!
Shiot, I wish, Between the SpeedSucksTV buying the rights but not showing the races on Sunday, and then, forgetting to tune in on Tuesdays, I haven't been able to watch one of them yet!!! Although, reading the after race comments is more eventful than acutally watching the AMA races Gawd, what a disaster it has become!
