Yamaha has got to be happy. 1-2 and Cal shouldn't fool himself again, so in there.
Marquez was looking good, though both Honda's seemed to have tail-happy bikes. Rossi was so much tighter into the turns than those he was chasing.
Great racing though, thanks to Rossi almost binning it, then going deep to come back at them. And Marquez for trying to the end. Great show.
Ducati are under attack from those ART bikes.
Looking forward to the Austin show. less dirt plumes billowing off the bikes.
Yeah Lorenzo smoked em alright,he did have the benefit of a long running Pedrosa roadblock behind him holding any would be challengers at bay. Pedrosa shut all doors smoothly and nobody could pass him down the straightaway,or on the outside sand cushion track.
Lorenzo was fast from the 1st lap of practice and deserved to win no doubt.
Rossi has shown in the past he can rattle Lorenzo's cage just fine and here's hoping they make a great race of it this season.
When Rossi was running full chat right next to the main straight fence,it looked like was on a Mile track with the dirt/dust/sand he was kicking up.
Fearless and he showed it.
His race pace is different then his qualifying pace, and he clearly proved passing wasnt that big a trick......... Just gotta stuff it in there.
Easy for me to say
