Agreed, bent and non-starting race bikes are anything but confidence inspiring...

Great result , but bad luck of the Aussies.

Awesome group of young riders coming through.
Gotta be good for the future of racing.

Fenati was unbelievable. The rookie got 2nd in his first race and 1th in his 2nd. Last time we had a rookie podium the first 2 races was in '91 when Noboru Ueda got 1th and 3rd.


Now, release the hounds of Moto 2.

I don't think Ben should quit, I root for the guy. but he just doesn't seem to have the fire under him that he had in his first year here, and in order to beat stoner,pedrosa and company, you need plenty of fire. I agree with what was said earlier, about yamaha hoping for more. I think they figured they would have two riders battling at the front every weekend, which is what it takes to be world champion. maybe he's hanging back to keep Edwards company! just kidding there, guess we'll have to see what happens as the season progresses.
I'd like nothing more than to see Ben and Nicky battle up front, but I think we'll see them battle for 5th or 6th instead. 1.5 seconds off of lorenzo? you just can't give away that much time to any of those guys up front and hope to beat them. your lucky to beat them if your running the same times!
I hope I'm wrong!

More than that, did you see the diff in his lap times? In this class, that's comparatively like Stoner taking 2 seconds a lap out of Lorenzo. That's some speed.


Moto2 never fails to entertain!

No spoiler from me, but as usual, if you can only watch one race, make it M2.

Afterall no news..

After all the great foreplay write-ups that the weather and good journalists provided us, in a dry race it's still Stoner vs Lorenzo, all Ducs are slow and Spies hasn't found his need for speed yet... only Cal keeps on impressing.

He keeps learning. Never takes a lap off. Fun to see.

I thought that Lorenzo was playing with Stoner. Turns out Stoner was dangling the carrot in front of JLo. Amazing riders both of them.

Bautista 6th on a satellite Honda that's not like the satellite Yamahas.

Cal was great! IIRC he said that he likes the tires very much.

The way he is riding, Fenati is the new Marquez. A bit more experience and not many will be able to touch him.

This was a nice racing weekend!
