Based on watching him in years past, I expected Marquez to be a bit more of a wild animal in MotoGP. I've actually been surprised at his (mostly) level headed riding so far.

I'll give him some advice: stay single and wear a condom= long winning career.

How long will his injury take to get him back to where he should be, and even if he comes back 110%, is it gonna make any difference on that bike?

Unfortunately Spies may never come back from this injury, the level of competition has increased and has put a lot of pressure on him that I think gets into his head.

I really like Nicky too, but I don't see him improving much. Competition is stiff, if other brands enter MotoGP it will take them a while to make a competitive bike and he isn't getting any younger.

Who knows! I do think it is going to take a while longer to heal. Then the guys will be 1/3 of a season ahead of him and he'll just be learning the ways of Duc. Then, if he does get back to 100% he can fight for fifth? Bummer.

Lots of interesting characters at the back of the race that we never see on TV.

I would like to see Hayden and Spies on Suzukis in WSB personally. I am sad to say I don't think either of them have much of a MotoGp future

Speaking of Americans; what is the future for us after Nicky and Ben leaves? The AMA isn't exactly a breeding ground for GP talent now and there are not any young Americans coming thru any sort of gran prix circuit that I know of. Is there any one out there to fill in the void after they leave? Maybe someone who has a shot a championship?

The chance for a win for either Cal or Dovi is about the same considering it's going to take something weird to happen. Dovi has had plenty of podium finishes. He needs to think longer term and he is making more money. This time next year Dovi will still be riding a Ducati and it could be competitive. We aren't sure where Cal will be.

I think Nicky Hayden will be the last American MotoGP champion for very long time, at least a generation.

There is talent among the AMA racers, especially some of the young guys, but without major sponsorship coming their way, I see little chance of any American getting a good ride in a European dominated series.

Things a very different now as compared to the '70s and '80s.

Doesn't that suck.

I still don't understand how bike racing is so huge in Europe and virtually ignored in the good ol US of A.

He actually makes a good point about Jorge's and Dani's first races. Jorge took pole and second in his first motogp race? Marquez sure is remarkable, but so are the other two contenders for the WC.

And about Lorenzo's after race antics : Rossi can breach track security all he wants to put a play up, and Lorenzo can't even show some pride in his victory?

I bet Dovi earns a lot more than Cal.
