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.

It was hurting my heart to see Rossi unable to stay away from the firestorm Marquez, this one gettting closer to him at an impressive rate and then disappearing in front of his eyes... Rossi does not have a chance against this Super dude!
But for the moment, the World Supersport´s heroe Jules Cluzel is where we should all have our eyes on, because of the amazing results with the F3. For him I bow in humbleness and respect! He´s got an army of R6, CBRs and ZX-6s behind him in the championship.....hehehe!
His closest rival for now is definitely Coghland. Can´t wait for the next race! See if I don´t have a stroke watching the Super Sport races with Cluzel!!! He is doing with the MV what Stoner did with the Ducati - probably Cluzel is the only guy that can squeeze all the potencial of the F3.
I’m going to buy an XR1200 and kit it out for a couple of race outing in this years “Rolling Thunder” series..
Okay the Cat is now out of the Bag, let the P*SS taking begin !!!!!:stickpoke
This series will be supporting the BSB rounds, and I intend on entering a few rounds on the circuits...
