Swedish motocross legend 'King Carla' Carlqvist was there too.. Yeah, that'd be fun to watch!

When he's riding hard, he's very entertaining

Is there any other game besides basketball where point margins that decide games are routinely decided by how many uncontested penalty shots you can make? If basketball benched the refs after they called three fouls and let any contact go unpenalized it would be a much better game. If basketball were structured like GP only the top teams would get to use a ball that was completely inflated.
+1. Top Moto-Gp teams have the very best rider,the very best bike,the absolute most money by a long shot,top tuners,get the most testing,have the newest suspension and electrics to be had as soon as it comes out. And if the straight is long enough it looks like Marquez bides his time to make it interesting then just blows on past.

Everybody not on a real factory bike is scrabbling as hard as they can and sometimes they pull off a good finish.

Still some of the best racing on the planet!

The genre is being revived.

That was ok, but it was no Yamaha 50th anniversary video with Roberts, Lawson, Rainey, Spies, Crutchlow, JL and Edwards!

Yup, Honda does a lot well, but their promotional videos are generally lifeless compared to Yamaha's.
