But this one is the exception.

Racing is HUGE $$$- however to see these 3 FAST guys enjoying the moment.

That's a big reason why we all love the sport.

So I broke my arm into lots of tiny pieces going 40 mph on my Ninja, needed a plate and thirteen screws to put my arm to face the correct way.

About six weeks later, I got back on a BICYCLE, and rode 9 miles. Slow. It hurt. It took me months to get back on a moto, couldn't operate the brake/throttle correctly.

I can't even imagine getting on a motoGP bike and going 200 miles an hour, racing no less just riding, 36 hours after surgery. Unfuckingbelieveable.

motogp.com it was in his after race interview. "We can take no positives from this weekend". Yeah, he's not happy at all. Also I guess Dovi went up the inside at the last lap and pushed them both wide and someone passed them there too. :( Bummed for Nicky for sure. Ung.

lmao, Cal owns so much. Definitely the best personality in the paddock right now. Watch the warm up the picture doesn't do it justice.

It hurts less with $8-10 million a year. I wonder how fat the WC bonus is?

Very embarrassed. Almost despondent. When official Ducati PR bods start telling you it was a disaster, then it was a disaster...

Rossi is feeling extra good about his decision to take a pay cut ...

Even though yesterday was all-Rossi for me, I do have to give props to JLo.
He rode like a STUD.

Great to see Rossi back on top, he looked smooth and in control.

Marquez, wow again, the wows just keep coming with this guy.

Crutchlow, he came so so close to losing it there when he tried to get past Marquez.

Lorenzo, I've always respected his ability to go fast without drama and his consistency. And, I've always thought he was a bit of a wanker. After seeing what he did yesterday, I have a ton of newfound respect for him, riding like that so soon after surgery was incredible on so many levels.

IT was Marquez WBHO was slow in the corner where crutchlow nearly clipped him. MM was on the brakes a tad too long, whether it was intentional or not to give CC a scare.

Crutchlow said he saw Marquez get his hand caught on the brakes. By then, Marquez was losing strength in his injured hand, and couldn't release quickly enough.

Interesting. I don't see Crutchlow taking many chances like other people seem to. He certainly was patient, took his time, and made a clean pass on Lorenzo. I wonder if Lorenzo took Vale and Cal out to dinner last night.
