Disappointing to see Spies struggle after such a good weekend otherwise.

Congratulations to Dani Pedrosa on his 100th podium.

Though I am not a "fan" of his, I have great respect for his talents and accomplishments.

Did Rossi's crew sabotage Hayden's bike?

What the hell is up with this Spies guy? So much promise, so few results, at least lately. What must he do to retain his factory Yamaha ride, if that is even possible now?

Dovi beats Cal? Who would have thought?

Many large gaps among the finishers does not equate to a strong series. Hope they can fix that.

Maybe so...

Nicky Hayden ECU Issues
Nicky Hayden, on the other hand, just tried to make it to the finish due to an electrical problem with his bike’s ECU, which was subject to interference from a radio signal near the track. As a result, all of the electronic calibrations were out of phase around the circuit, making riding extremely challenging. The American nonetheless rode with great determination to an eleventh-place finish.

So, in theory, anyone can sit in a van in the parking lot with an RF jammer and influence outcomes?

MotoGP is more of a parade than a race.
Maybe that's why CRT is the future?
Dorna should instruct the riders to wave at
the fans from start to finish.

Why did this happen to only one of the 2 factory bikes? I know there must be differences between them but aren't important bits like electronics the same?

I would say a lot if not most people thought Dovi would have the handle on Cal this year. Cal has stepped it up.

It's just as well the words weren't included. And can someone please explain why we still continue to include another country's flag on our own? Pathetic!
