If Lorenzo beats Rossi by one position for the remaining 6 rounds, Rossi will still be ahead. Anything can happen, of course, and one DNF by Pedrosa or Rossi will upend the standings.

That's the sort of amount I'd pay for this little gadget. At $100 for the 5/5S case and mount, you're a good part of the way to paying for a GoPro, which will have better features by far.
