    The XR race must have been a barn Burner. I wish I could have seen it.

    +1. Top four finish with .188 of a second. Moto2 racer from Malaysia finishes 3rd. Wonder what happened to Rapp on lap 8?

    Hey! Listen up! I set my DVR to record the races. When the channel changed to FS1 it erased all my scheduled recordings. I just had to go in and re-schedule them.

    MM is fast and isn't chucking multimillion-dollar prototypes down the track with the frequency of some of the more "seasoned" riders. Truly impressive work.

    Ben struck a deal with a demon of torment for his career in motorcycle racing. I can only assume it's coming to collect.

    I don't care what any of you say, I want to see Stoner slugging it out with this crew. I like seeing talented riders riding good equipment quickly around a circuit. Maybe I'm crazy.

    Good for anyone who goes I guess but for anyone watching from home it's got to the least entertaining race of the year. Just not an inspiring track to watch them ride on and this coming from someone who is content with processional motogp races.......

    Would rather they head to Donnington.

    Hahahahaha, I'd like to see that just to see him get spanked by Marc. Also yeah, the whining oh good lord, MM would yoink a pass like he did on Lorenzo and yeah, he'd be done. I think he's pretty awesome fast if he can get out in front and walk away from everyone. Being an actual bang bars racer messes with his head though I think.


    Bummed for Spies. Damn. Reports I've heard he's out for 3-4 weeks now. Sucks.

    Damnit! Was it streamed off the AMA site like a fully produced show or just static cameras?

    marbles building up nicely after the warm ups to bring us the traditional one line race track to prevent all hopes of passing since they will inevitably not clean anything between sessions/races.

    I pick as many marbles off of turn 4 as I could and checked for oil from the bike that blew up.

    It's going to be a great race for 2nd place ... hopefully the cameras follow this too rather than just watch MM fly around the track.

    Nicky got a pretty good tow off of MM for that lap in Q otherwise I think he would be back at the tail end of row 3. That was a pace he couldn't (and hasn't all weekend) do on his own.

    Good news.

    If they fix the track a little bit, the venue and the location are otherwise tops.

    The Euros seem to be surprised and impressed by the good atmosphere surrounding the race.

    That move Nicky put on Dovi had me getting out of my seat and chearing! Love it! It even included a synchronized jump at the end as they started to go off the track. :clap
