MM is fast and isn't chucking multimillion-dollar prototypes down the track with the frequency of some of the more "seasoned" riders. Truly impressive work.

Ben struck a deal with a demon of torment for his career in motorcycle racing. I can only assume it's coming to collect.

I don't care what any of you say, I want to see Stoner slugging it out with this crew. I like seeing talented riders riding good equipment quickly around a circuit. Maybe I'm crazy.

Would rather they head to Donnington.

Hahahahaha, I'd like to see that just to see him get spanked by Marc. Also yeah, the whining oh good lord, MM would yoink a pass like he did on Lorenzo and yeah, he'd be done. I think he's pretty awesome fast if he can get out in front and walk away from everyone. Being an actual bang bars racer messes with his head though I think.


Bummed for Spies. Damn. Reports I've heard he's out for 3-4 weeks now. Sucks.

Damnit! Was it streamed off the AMA site like a fully produced show or just static cameras?

marbles building up nicely after the warm ups to bring us the traditional one line race track to prevent all hopes of passing since they will inevitably not clean anything between sessions/races.

I pick as many marbles off of turn 4 as I could and checked for oil from the bike that blew up.

2nd Place

It's going to be a great race for 2nd place ... hopefully the cameras follow this too rather than just watch MM fly around the track.

Nicky got a pretty good tow off of MM for that lap in Q otherwise I think he would be back at the tail end of row 3. That was a pace he couldn't (and hasn't all weekend) do on his own.

The Euros seem to be surprised and impressed by the good atmosphere surrounding the race.

That move Nicky put on Dovi had me getting out of my seat and chearing! Love it! It even included a synchronized jump at the end as they started to go off the track.
