I really enjoyed Le Mans, thinking it was nice to see Marquez have to actually fight his way through 10 spots in the first half of the race.

Today, Mugello was easily the best MotoGP race of not only this year, but probably all but a few races over the past few years. I haven't been this excited about a GP race in a while.

Kudos to Jorge for a great duel today.

Awesome race to watch, although you can't relax at all which makes for very tense viewing,,, and drinking.

Good to see those two hug it out in the winners circle too, after the bad blood from last year, it's good to see that all is forgiven. I think old Dani's career may be on a downhill slope.

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

Hate to say I missed it!! Dang. But maybe I can catch a replay.

Dani's career on a downhill?? It has been for a while....it's all in his mind.

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

Great to watch, myself the wife and daughter where jumping up and down like crazy.
I don't think this was Honda's best track by far, and the gap between the front 3 was massive back to the rest of the crowd. I honestly think that if Rossi got closer to them earlier in te race, it might have been a three way battle.

I nearly cried when I saw Carl's bike take out Bradle, that poor guy had a massive high-side in morning practice just a few hours earlier, that body will be hurting so bad this week.

Must be painful for Pedrosa to have three different teammates win a Moto GP title during his tunure with Honda..and Hayden didn't get his by winning all the time, but by just getting podiums all season...painful!! Retirement?? For sure..

This was for sure a great race and reminded me at races of Rossi vs. Gibernau.
But did any of You watch the Moto 3.
There where most of the time up to 15 guys in the leading group.
Up to 7 guys a breast going into the first turn every lap.
Who was leading at the begin of the straight was at turn one sometimes down to seventh.
This was really a crazy race.

For sure. Rossi had the pace to stay with Lorenzo but he couldn't close on him no matter how hard he tried. Later he said the part where he suddenly dropped a couple seconds more he had switched fueling maps as a gamble because he couldn't gain on the riders fast enough and he had to try something.

I expect Catalunya to be another amazing race with Rossi in the thick of it.
