MM threw down the gauntlet. QP should be very interesting.

It's great to see other riders breaking up the top 4.

MM for the win. I know he is a rookie, but he is just amazing.

I think I'd throw $20 on him this weekend.

+1 to what slowoldguy said.

There is just something about the perspective that an ADV takes the pics.

MM goes down pretty hard in FP3. Stumbled away. Looked like an overall body pounding. Lost the front.

edit, maybe rear stepped out on entry.

I lived in your fine country for 3 years, and drank more than a few beers with Boots. I think the Aussie style is in my blood now, anyway, it's just like the group of mongrels I grew up with in high school here in the YooEss.

I hope Marquez keeps his head on straight this first year, and doesn't let testosterone and adrenaline get the best of him. He sure is on fire now.

pretty big gap to the front but still CC super impressive IMO. Happy to see DP step it up.

He came back and set even faster laps on his back-up bike so I think he is ok.

Yeah, sore maybe; gotta wonder if he had a few more tenths in him without the pounding -- he didn't look eager to get up and clutched the gravel like he was hurting.

Pedrosa sliding into the right-hander -- pretty awesome.

Agree on Crutchlow. I wonder if Rossi is going to find something by the race.

Bradl should start to be on thin ice with his race crashes. He shows pretty solid pace in practice, but too often dumps it from a good position.
