Nicky looking doubtful for the race. He had a major high side. I don't want to say it but the Ducati is proving difficult for anyone other than Stoner

Good start the race was a bit of a snooze though. It will be a tough season. Nicky looked to get faster as the race went on. There is some hope for him

I gotta travel more often, my picks seem to be better when I choose early

Have not seen the race yet, hopefully, I can find a torrent or site to download and watch tomorrow when I get back to Miami.

How was it? exciting? boring? watchable? or ... forget about it!!!
