    Sweet precious jesus, my prayers have been answered, the ability to turn off commentary while continuing to get track audio!:clap Crank up the sound without the annoying yammering. Seems like you could keep your eyes on the inevitable battle for 3rd or 4th that gets missed while the main feed captures the winning rider going solo across the line.

    Looks like a free trial (with regular subscription) is available for Qatar and then I imagine some sort of upgrade fee for the rest of the season.

    Just got an e-mail from MotoGP indicating Rossi topped the time sheets on the last day of testing at Jerez, leading Jorge by.015 seconds.

    The sad (unintended, I'm sure) headline at Soup was one of Dean's bold "bombshell" announcements about Rossi being quickest. It's hard to imagine such a headline 3 short years ago.

    About as relevant as the fact Dovi was 3/10 quicker than MM.

    More relevant: Rossi knows how to play in peoples minds :deal

    What better way to look like slowest alien, ahem, maybe even sandbagging a little, then right before the end, show the kids what you got?

    I really need to resubscribe to MotoGp, this is going to be a hell of a season.

    Amen. I was wearing down the enamel on my molars grinding my teeth at Nick Harris' inane, incessant crap.

    If the multiscreen display is part of the regular subscription, great; if there's a premium, it sucks.

    The site stays a sample will be available at Qatar. I take that as meaning there will be an upgrade charge for this year with it eventually included in the normal pass ( which maybe goes up in price).

    Put the crack pipe down. Half the session was wet, it was windy. The running order of day 2 is not representative of true performance.

    And today is NOT the final day. There is another day of testing tomorrow. Penultimate means next to last. :deal

    Half of today was too wet to ride. I believe the day was ended with more wet. Not belittling Rossi's pace today. It just may be a little bit early to crown him champion.

    If he finishes ahead of the CRTs, it might be considered an improvement over last season (not all his fault of course). If he finishes ahead of Iannone, I'd say that was reason to celebrate.
