BTW, I think he's long earned the right to call his teammate out. It's not a contact sport and especially from a teammate with virtually no credentials or respect for those that do.

PJ was looking pretty fast on Warm-Up.

Melandri caused a dust up (splash?) in race 2, disrupting the natural order of things. This allows Rea to take the outdated Honda to another surprise win.

Nah, dumbass closed down on his teammate when he was almost even with him. You don't lean on another bike when its raining. Maybe in the dry, not in the wet.

I still blame Melandri. Or Pedrosa. Or Stoner... which thread is this?

One thing I've been noticing is that Guintoli is too polite in his passing. Everyone else barges through. He doesn't. He picks his spot and almost asks for permission to be let by.

I'm sure seeing Rea calmly sliding across the track in front of them was a big surprise. That was freaking cool.
