LeMans motogp

Awesome rides by the top 5 finishers, and as the commentators said about Marqy Marc, most guys take years to learn how to ride a motogp bike in the wet, this kid took half a race!

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Gotta love the large smile like a kid in a candy store.
Gotta love the 'when will he have a big crash/take someone else out' comments that keep coming too...

Certainly he has added a lot of spice and interest to what was in danger of becoming a very boring series. Ezpeleta must be ecstatic as he counts all the $ rolling in. At the risk of upsetting some, dare I say he appears to be the new Rossi without the comedy sketches?

I hope he keeps trading paint.

But I would still love to see him going head to head with Stoner. Stoner is up for a fight, but we've seen how willing he is to speak his mind about such things.

I reckon Marquez would have been the lit match to Stoners gun powder.

It could have been a better rivalry than Stoner V Rossi (especially seeing as Rossi defeated himself in the end).

Edit: And someone FFS give Cal a factory bike. Maybe a suzuki - if it's competitive.

Pedrosa won, second on a row. Schwantz must be and Puig must be thinking
Pedrosa has lost a lot of years fighting his injuries but this year is diferent, he looks confident and he is so smooth. Also Honda is some steps ahead from Yamaha..... and yes Carl needs a factory bike.

I actually thought it was pretty cool to see that the Ducati's being competitive for the first time since I can remember (wet?) a good ride by Dovi and Hayden. And yes Marquez with his come back after that terrible start was very Rossi like to make the podium. I think the real story was Crutchlow, he really kept it on and kept it smooth throughout the entire race, way to go Cal!

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

Wow I thought it was pretty action packed for a wet weather race. There were like mini battles going on across the various riders all vying for different positions.

I believe he was employing something called verbal irony.
Either that or he watched the race on SpeedTV which butchered the live broadcast cutting out the most important 7 laps.

I can't help thinking that Cal deserves the Factory bike more than Rossi.......saddens me to say that
