Whoopsy! Someone went too far on his "milk of amnesia".

I just noticed that there's roughly the same time separating Hayden and Edwards than there is Hayden and Crutchlow. Ouch.

Anyone know of any live streams for tomorrows BMO moto GP? Any idea what time it runs?

So Indy last week, BMO this week and Great Britain next week.... just how do they juggle the equipment to be ready at such a rapid globe trotting pace? How many bikes are their for each rider?

No. Ignore all requests to download anything. Click on the streaming links and give it 30 secs to clear the ads.

You will need to have your pop up blocker and ad blocker working.

Is it me or is MM's riding style looking like an improved version of Stoner?

He just looks quicker, he just did what he wanted to do today, tried a out brake and ride around then poked his nose in and took it when it was right. Last weekend at Indy I was standing on T-4 and you could just see how much quicker he was. But he also had more moments than DP or JL today and last weekend, you can't ride like that and not have it bite you sooner or later. Stoner was smoother!

He is sliding all over the place. I love to see him turn it in with the rear wheel sliding. Somehow, it doesn't hurt his tires that badly?
