lol... on an internet forum? He was under tremendous pressure to WIN, to beat Lorenzo, to beat Stoner. He was pushing hard. He pushed too hard and crashed. Win it or bin it because of the pressure on him to succeed. He didn't follow his normal game plan of following closely then passing halfway through because he had to also beat Stoner. Pressure made him change his game plan.

By the,WSBK is good racing along with Moto2 and AMA Daytona Sportbike! Not a fan of the one and two horse racing if you know what I mean.
I have the subscription. The commentary by Nick Harris and Gavin Emmett is great. I tried to watch Speed but there is too much of the race missing and the announcers are aweful. The BBC broadcast is great as well, but Can't view with a US ip.

I've altered your post so that it makes sense. I'm nice like that.

I am glad I am not the only one paying attention.

+1

And if Stoner hadn't retired this year it would be Bautista looking for a job not Pedrosa. The guy went on a crazy winning streak showed many times he could win under tremendous pressure and came from quite a ways back to damn near win the championship. With his form (and Honda's) I'd say he's the favorite going into next year. Wouldn't be surprised if JLo is thinking the same thing.

Fuck Speed in the ass!! Missed the last 10 laps of Moto2 because of their stupid ASSCAR coverage.

Now that the Championship non-sense is out of the way, we can have a real race at Valencia.

Dani has been better this year than any previous, and though he is not as exciting to watch as Stoner with the big slides, he has really put on a hell of a challenge.
Nobody was beating Stoner if he could go race distance, but I didn't want to see it so easy for him so early.

Yep, the first 1 and a half laps were really great, all front row guys were on the edge. Too bad it did not last even a little longer.

Me too! What makes it soooo bad as the interruption was for POST-race wrap-up of the NASCAR race. Very rude behavior by the channel.

I'll record the race on Tuesday.

Yeah, "Breaking news", right. Bunch of overweight stock cars turning left for an entire afternoon. Then the a holes have to rehash it. SHEEEET.

I'm another one for a subscription next year.

At least they went back to the Moto2 race after they flapped their gums. Coulda' been like the final WSBK race where Biaggi crossed the line then Speed cut away but didn't go back.
