JLo doesn't have an issue with MM. He thinks Marquez is number one.

Marquez nearly clipped JLo´s back wheel I think 3 times in a row braking for the same corner(?) ...And that last-corner pass was just about as legal/illegal as the famous Rossi/Gibernau clash in the same place. But fact is, it worked. And it put MM on top of the championship at this point.

Even JLo admitted in the interview (once he´d cooled down a bit), that he had let the door open just a tiny bit. He should have known, that MM won´t need a second invitation. Maybe he thought MM was not close enough to try.

But you take Marquez out of this race, and what´s left? ...ok you still have CC and Bautista fighting for 5th position a bit. Other than that, pretty much a boring procession, especially up front.

Very interesting to see, how Dani and JLo adjust to this new situation, where unless you are certain you can break away from Marquez, you´ll need to be prepared to take your gloves off (and the same goes actually, IF Rossi proves he still has the speed to keep up with these guys)!

Wilco Zeelenberg:
"Dani and Jorge would never have tried to pull such a stunt, they don’t use their opponents as berms to try to make the corner, and that’s a bit what happened here."
"We keep talking about mistakes, and they are mistakes by Marc, errors of judgment, but so far, he has got away with it."

^^^ This guy is naturally biased. While I agree it was a risky move, if any one of these guys was 3rd into the very last corner, and they´re close enough and see the 2nd place guy leave a tiny opening, they should go for it, or they´re not real racers. JLo is the one, who made the real mistake, by assuming there will be no passing attempt.

Thought someone might say that. You're right.

A retort to Schwantz, then. Something to make him wonder whether maybe he will end up apologising. That was a very fine ride.

so is anyone really surprised.I think MM did exactly what we all expected him to do,and wobbling and sliding around is part of riding these bikes when the run out of grip.MM showed a realglimpse of what it takes to win.Its one thing to follow another rider but quite another to overtake.MM shows that he is one of few .I have said before that i hope it doesnt end in tears but.....

it begins

Somethings change. Casey has left the building.
Somethings stay the same. You're still the same ignorant and classless pillock as before!

Aspad, please don't "quote" this clown. Me and probably many others have him on our "ignore" list. When you "quote" him, we get to view the crap he writes.

Don't see a problem here, MM was in front of jLo when the contact happened, which makes it jLo's fault. If he'd been punted from behind, different story, but a legal pass, jLo screwed up to let it happen.

As for the earlier stuff, it's a lot easier to be neat and tidy if you are the one in front, behind, not so easy. Anyone really want a race where you may as well just run one lap ?

Lorenzo said he should have closed the door, or not let it open in the first place.

Should be a great race in Le Mans.

What he said

I just watched it on the DVR - All I could think of was Vale/Sete. Sete was never the same after that.


MM is making the season fun. Too bad SBK isn't on most US tv now - have to find it on the www to get it.

But back to GP

Crutchlow getting ahead of Alvaro was the only close stuff other than JLo & MM. Nicky beating Dovi is good for him.

And I hate to say this, but I'm rooting for Vale & Yami to find him some more power / grip to get with the Repsol midgets.

I'm sure Dani is stoked to win @ Jerez, cause if MM won, he would have taken over the crown of midget porn in Espana.

beIN Sport carries the world feed, all 5+ hours of it uninterrupted by commercials. It's awesome. To bad Speed can't do something similar with MotoGP.

One might have expected him to have learned that lesson after Rossi mugged him at Catalunya in '09. He thought he had Marquez beat. He didn't.
