    Would mm be winning as much if he were on the yamaha? The honda looks like it breaks better and has much more punch out of the corners. The only saving grace for the yamaha is JLo's ability to carry huge corner speed.

    Is it possible yamaha has tuned down their motors to help them last the season?

    Redding is currently leading the Moto2 championship, Crutchlow has had two poles and four podiums. So it is not surprising they get the occasional mention.

    Ain't that the truth. Very annoying yesterday. The worst was Moto2. They spent the whole race talking about their guy languishing in 8th place, while the the epic battle up front was unfolding.

    I was surprised it was Mika's first win. in Moto2. The Japanese kid is going to make his mark I think. He can back it in with anybody. :huh

    This just in ---- Moto GP has just announced they will be using a crew of Norwegian announcers for their english feed who are less likely to promote their nations riders on air as much.

    I don't know - I would be more comfortable with the Swiss. You know, neutrality and all that.

    As I was watching the race I was thinking of you and Kyns. Specifically I was thinking that Kyns has been raving about Kallio since about 2005 and he finally got a win! Congrats to you guys. If Hayden ever wins again, at this level, WSBK or wherever, I won't shut-up about it! :lol3

    I haven´t checked, but the announcers said Kallio´s last victory before this was Donington in 2008. So half a decade ago...

    But now he was fast all weekend, and also the victory was hard fought and very well deserved.

    Pedrosa looked like that but Lorenzo was pointing at the Yamaha.

    Yeah Kallios first win in Moto2.:thumb

    He used to win a LOT in 125/250. It was awesome watching him battle with JLO, Simo, Aoyama, Dovi... in 250, fighting for wins every weekend.

    Would have been nice to see what he could have done in Moto GP on Honda or Yamaha. I think he was the best rider Pramac has ever had.

    Hayden is one of my favorites, i hope he stays in Moto GP. Would like to see him on a Yamaha.

    Does anyone know where I can download or watch the 8/25/2013 Brno race without paying the ridiculously high 25 euro price that Moto GP.com wants to view the race that already happened?

    Fox sports one does not show repeats of the race like Speed did and I missed the 7am viewing on Sunday. :cry

    Thanks
