    Speaking of excuse-a-rama.......
    The track is ~3.4 MILES around. There's 12 bikes out there.
    Each bike could have more than a quarter mile all to themselves if evenly spaced.

    It's only MHO, but any rider who has issues with traffic has only themselves to blame.:deal

    Absolutely. Anyone who goes on about wanting close racing that doesn't watch this Moto 3 race can go to their room and suck their thumb. It was all knees and elbows and fairings and tires for several laps and right up to the finish line. :clap

    Lordy, I sweated bricks for Redding.

    I don't know how he can do anymore to overcome his large frame, racing-wise.

    I was bouncing off the couch for that one :D

    I think it's fair to say Vale hasn't lost Anything, he still has the skill, craft and determination and its going to be a great year:clap Marc'y boy is already proving he'll be a real challenger to win in his first year, he can only get better and Cal deserves a works bike, his bike is so slow down the straight, I think at some circuits he has a very good chance of a few podiums (and that's on a bike exactly the same as what he was racing last year according to his team) :clap Jorge did what he does best and walked it :clap but I would imagine he be rather concerned when he watches the race later and see's how fast Vale was and how he carved his way through the other Aliens. Dani must be absolutely gutted and its gonna mess his head up unless he can stamp his authority on Marc (which I doubt he will).
