MotoGP Assen TT Spoilers

Holy shit what a race!

That will go down as one of, if not the best race of the year. (Hope I'm wrong!) The fight for the lead over 23 laps was incredible.. I cant remember the last time I was on the edge of my seat watching so many different bikes and riders fight for it like that ... Of course that being said, was Marquez just enjoying a leisurely Sunday ride and saving his tires until the last 3 laps? Probably. But a well deserved victory. He is amaze-balls with saving crashes. The recovery from the bump from Rins was just as amazing as previous saves and save attempts.

Lorenzo had great form and I thought he might do three until he got beat up by the crowd, but I was still impressed that he continued the fight after some hard passes at he beginning and colliding with Rossi when he missed a gear @ high speed.
I am almost disappointed that he will go to Honda now that he is showing up on the Ducati.

Nice job by Rins to put the Suzuki in second as he and Maverick kept it exciting to the end. I expect that the marque will take a win soon.

Overall a great race... I am sure Erik's boy will be happy

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

What a race...!!!! WOW. Was hoping for a different winner, but good on MM93 for pulling it out at the end.

Exciting does not really describe it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

1st of July was a good racing weekend, both in motoGP series and formula 1. All 4 races were very good.
This was a good week.

hahaha! You got that right! Much dufferent look on his face in the other years lol

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

That was Moto GP at its very best!
Sadly Dovi got it wrong with Rossi and both run wide loosing out on 2 and 3.
Might they could have stand in touch with MM.

We had a commentator who litterely gave numbers the entire race.
This bike has a 998cc engine and it roughly produces 260 or 270 horsepower, and will reach 350km/h on this straight(Yeah... on Assen 350, make my day)

Seriously the most boring and annoying piece of commentating I've ever witnessed.
Like If I was watching this as the very first time. horrible.

Also name where pronounced all wrong. Vinales suddenly was vijales.
Rossi -> Roosi
Marquez -> Maqez
Crashlow -> cutchluw
Lorenzo -> Loenzo

Just awful.
