Really unpredictable...
What happened to Lorenzo? Bad tyres?

And...that pretty much sums it up for me.

Congrats to DP, CC, MM, AD and NH. Fine rides by all.

P.S. I'm think its time for Cal to stop asking for updates since it appears he is already on the best Yamaha. Last years.

It definitely looks better in the wet doesn't it.

The Honda looks really good in the wet this year, Marquez looked smoother in the wet here than he did in the dry at Jerez.

What was with the red lites on the back of the bikes? Is that a bad weather add-on or have they always been there and I didn't notice?

Crutchlow is quickly becoming my favorite GP racer. To ride with such severe injuries at such a high level week after week is amazing. I would say just think what he'd do on a full factory Yamaha but I'm starting to think they really aren't much better than the Tech 3 bike.

Pedrosa didn't look like a favorite after Marquez' performance in Q2, but like swimmer tried to point out, Pedrosa has won a wet race before. OTOH, for a lot of people, their predictions are virtually copy-and-paste jobs every race, and typically say more about who their favorite riders are than who they'd put money down for.

BTW, Pedrosa's first wet MotoGP race was Le Mans, where he came in third. That said, Marquez rode a great race.

Any word on Lorenzo's problem?

Been on the back of the bikes for the past 2 years. Only there in wet conditions. Visibility aid.

great race. Another up yours to KS from Dani!


Or perhaps KS knew what he was doing to light a fire under Dani. Looks good either way from my seat.


Overall: fun to watch, great rides from Dovi, Cal and Mark, too, but since I wear rossigoggles (tm), it is hard to see him fade like this.
