    That was great!:clap
    Had some streaming issues even with streaming recorded. I'm too old to be getting up in the middle of the night to do much other than pee.:poser
    Lots of image shifts and starts during FP3/4. QP1 and 2 were fine.

    Can Jlo claw back some points from DP here?
    They are very evenly matched. I'm hoping it goes down to the last corner of the last lap.
    The race for third should be very interesting. Since Cal has allergies and MM is a little banged up, Rossi has a good shot.
    I'm stoked for Dovi. I suspect he will start strong but fade.
    Whatever the outcome, Mugello usually delivers an exciting race.

    The unfortunate saga of Ben Spies continues. It does have to end, doesn't it?

    When the chequered flag went out it was Lor, Mar, Ros....and Rossi had towed Hayden into 4th. On the timing board Pedrosa was in 7th spot and had done nothing all session. Crutchlow had dumped his bike, ran back to the pits for the No2 bike, his leathers all covered in dust, out of the running in everyones eyes. I don't even know where Dovi was. By the time they all finished their last lap the result board had changed completely - one of the best WTF happened there? qualifying sessions.

    You're bloody miles away from us, mate! And we're not even allowed into the public areas at Mugello. Which is weird, because at every other circuit, journos are allowed into the GA areas, but not at Mugello. Welcome to Italy...

    Warm up lap, and the feed freezes.

    Reload!

    Redding is making the pass, freezes.

    Reload part deux!

    Terol passing? Freeze!

    Fucking reload!!!


    See a pattern here? Got to watch it, but not feeling like I got what I paid for.

    Seems that it's known to be a webhole, and yet they take the BMW party line: Nothing wrong here.


    What happens during motogp, when the loads crank up? Fuck.

    I feared this same thing, but at least so far the feed has not cut out once for me today. Yesterday I was having a lot of problems with it.

    I had some glitches yesterday but no issues this morning - so far. I'm using the "Standard Player" because everytime I try to use the new one streaming quality goes south.

    Yep, and Rossi needs to sort out his qualifying and his starts.

    If he wants to run around the first couple of turns midfield race after race then this sort of stuff will keep happening. :deal

    Just got the helicopter shot of Bau/Vale incident, for me there should be penalty points heading Bautista´s way from that, he just rammed to the side of Vale, probably didn´t see him and all, but on that situation you have to be aware of riders around you.

    Re-watched that video - Bautista´s front wheel is next to Rossi´s back wheel coming out of the corner before, and then when changing side from left to right, Bautista suddenly swerves to the right (he probably wants to get to the inside of whoever is in front of him for the right-hander). No way Rossi could have seen him coming, before they touch.

    After watching what he was doing at Jerez, the question for me was never whether Marquez was going to have a race crash but whether he was going to take someone else out with him when it happened. May not be the end of them.

    Nice result for the WC -- would have been pretty demoralizing for Lorenzo if Pedrosa did 3 in a row. Pedrosa didn't look comfortable out there.

    Bradl -- finally.
