Thank GOD the race went that way.



Even more props for a Pramac DUCATI giving Rossi a ride to the podium

GREAT racing today, and I'm really hoping that we'll even see fights over FIRST place in the next couple of rounds.

I bought a video pass and that multi screen stuff was really slick. Just an all around good time.

A bit better qualifying, a mistake less, and I believe Rossi will have some battles with Lorenzo for the front.

Today I feel we saw a great example of Rossi's race craft. Made a huge mistake, but sorted it out and patiently got himself up to second. A great start to the season.

Why did Crutchlow run off when Rossi came by? I was looking to see if Rossi pushed him wide or something, but it was not apparent, looked like a clean pass.

Whatever the case - that was an exciting race to watch!
Rossi was indeed turning quicker laps,I think he could have gave Lorenzo a great race with out the first lap miscue.
Really the miscue looked to be Pedrosa slowing too much with Rossi right on his tail. Rossi was smart to pick it up and avoid huge problems.

Pedrosa was really a fast moving roadblock,Crutchlow would have smoked him if it wasnt for the Honda being so fast down the main straight.

But really,it was a great race! Rossi pulled out some of his old magic and put on yet another great show!

Cant wait for Texas. (wont be a sand race there)

I don't have a source for replays though. Maybe on Eurosport.
Could always go in with a buddy and sign up for www.motogp.com

Great live coverage,replays,videos from past races,not a bad deal.

Dani must be absolutely gutted and its gonna mess his head up unless he can stamp his authority on Marc (which I doubt he will).
Marc will only get faster,he was loving riding the big bike right from the start.

yes yes.. rossi rossi rossi... lol

Guess that Ducati really does suck, huh?

Hopefully it won't be the same 2 yamahas and the same 2 hondas all year. Hopefully someone else can get up there for the fun. Cal or Bradl....

I hope he learns from it.
I think on that track once your a little wide your out in the sand/dust line and turning fast at speed is real chance.

Would F1 race on a track with dust and sand kicking up like that?
It just looked a little sketchy.

Best MotoGP race in a long time.
It promises to be an action packed season.

Stoked for COTA.
I hope all 3 USA riders do better, but it surely won't be easy.
It's a tough crowd.

Anyone going to give Burgess and co. props for being the genius he is/they are for giving Vale the fastest bike setup for the last half of the race?

Running out of fuel on the cool down lap put the exclamation point on how far they pushed it.

Guess the ride of the day has to be Marquez.. Rossi did a great job in the end, but it sure as hell wasn't his first ever grand prix in the big class!! Beating your teammate, while fighting for 2nd place against the most experienced rider in the class... on your FIRST race??!?

I say DP & JL are a tiny bit worried about their teammates right now.
