Elias is the trojan horse since he is hungry for a ride for next year but I think he'll try to hard and crash, I am just hoping he'll do it alone and not take anyone else with him.

Race #13 results **SPOILER**

Do not open the link if you do not want to see the results.

The results can be viewed at 2009 MotoGP.

Spoiler:
HondaJim and RC90 scored 30 points. They both had the exact same picks. Hmmm... Jim still trails RC90 by 10 points.

that's what I initially thought, after watching the replay a couple of times, it doesn't look like it was all his fault, Lorenzo got in to hot and decided to park it so DeAngelis had no way to go. Still, he shouldn't be trying to win the race in the first 2 corners.

Nicky looked extremely happy & calm before the race, he could have finished 4th and perhaps even in the lower step of the podium but... we will never know.

Oh well, all we got is to sit and wait for the next month's race... I hate waiting more than 2 weeks for the races.

See... and I watched it a lot of times and think it WAS all DeAngelis' fault. I read where he admitted he got into the turn too hot and then (Classically) said Edwards cut him off so he had to hammer the brakes.... and put it down.

Now when you are going through a turn too hot... your line isnt the ideal one and ANYONE on a better line will certainly seem as if he is 'cutting you off'... am I wrong in this thinking? Its probably just a language thing... as he did admit fault and apologized to the entire thing... but when I heard him say Colin CUT HIM OFF I laughed hardily.

I thought Nicky was going to drop him right there in the gravel when he walked over to him. Imagine the scene... "And there's the 2 Americans... kicking and beating the Italian in the gravel..."

What a shame because all 3 looked decent going into the weekend...

Just waiting for Micheal to point out how Nicky didnt have the heart in this one to stay upright...

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

I don't think I have ever seen Nicky as pissed as today, well, we have always seen the video from MotoGP and not a civilian... that's for sure.

I can't find a good enough video to watch the replay in slow-mo... I'll see if I can make one myself.

Yeah I lost interest once Rossi ran off into the sunset on this. It sucks that DeAngelis pulled a Kamakazi move. The video was great and Nicky looked pissed maybe not as much as when Pedrobot took him out in 06. The interview was great out of the corner of my eye I see a fruity rainbow helmet.

This is nothing compared to the interview with Colin, it is said that he does not hold anything back on this one and he pretty much said that DeAngelis was an Ass-hole, the Donkey of the race and something about the Italians... I am sure that's not going to go well with his pal Vale and a lot of people.

OK, let's see if this works... I just uploaded the video so it may not work just yet, if so, give it an hour or so.

Start watching (or paying attention) from 0:11:00 secs on and if you have a slow-mo option on your player, use it, you'll see how Lorenzo just completely blows the turn 1 (it could be said that Rossi put a block move on Lore as well). Lorenzo also seems to seems to cruise to the 2nd turn lik there is no rush (WTF?), Colin gets even a little bit ahead of him (from the angle that we're watching) and then Lorenzo chops him off leaving Colin no where to go, DeAngelis is also coming in WAY to Hot and well, the rest is history and so is Nicky's race.

This is a replay from the Moto live feed and broadcast by British Eurosport 2.

Colin's fairing piece looked like a penalty flag being thrown.

Nicky was going to punch De and then decided that might not be a good idea since he had a helmet on.
