Wow, what a boring race. Only 46 gave a little bit of excitement near the end with Dovi.

I thought it was a good race.....for second place and back.

Race Control got an earful from Cal I'll bet...and deservedly so. I watched every start replay and never could see Cal's supposed jump start. He certainly gained no advantage. I think they really screwed him over.

Wow. As much as I don't like Marquez I have to it give him. He kicked their ass. Glad to see Rossi back on the podium

It was an early April fools prank. All the other riders were on Moto2 machinery. 93 was on a MotoGP bike. That has to be it right?

Speaking of Moto 2:
Just watched it Baldarsari killed it. He will be in MOTO GP next year.

Great to see Gardner get his first podium. Looks really good at the moment. May have been able to fight for the top spot if Baldasari didn't school him on hard passes.

Pretty rough and tumble race with Binder, Gardner, Baldarsari, Schrotter and Marquez trading paint on numerous occasions.

Moto GP: Marquez schooled them didn't he. I hope that is not the rest of the season. The Yammies did better than I thought they would on a track that shouldn't suit them. They must be getting the power down better. Despite all his knockers the Doctor still getting the job done better than most of the field week in/week out. Still disappointed Zarco didn't go to Suzuki (understand their history). It is a good bike this year even if a little down on power. Hope he doesn't waste his best years punting around on the KTM. Miller sneaking forward slowly in his results

Moto2 was epic. No other word for it.

Gardner smoking his tyre and grabbing every opportunity to pass someone to get back to P1.

How Binder brakes in a steep angle with the rear sliding away from him.
Just awesome.

I wish Cal would have gotten JL99s ride. I'm becoming a huge fan. That guy has turned over a new leaf. Less crash and more podium.

I bet some top HRC execs are sharing the same wish, although I do have faith in JL99 coming to grips with the bike. Difference is that Cal was 'race ready' with the Honda and his relationship with LCR would probably have meant a lot of information sharing would be granted.

I suppose Cal's consolation is that he's (reportedly) under contract to HRC, but that's really a Monica Lewinsky role in that he gets part of the action without the full benefits.

I am at a loss to explain how Sam Lowes manages to stay in the premier classes every year? He crashes every weekend and does nothing but under achieve.....?

Great to see Vale’s still got it. Ianonne’s lost it, and the rookies are giving everyone something to think about. If it wasn’t for MM it would be anyone’s championship
