Pretty good race. Rossi, Stoner, and Lorenzo had a pretty good battle for a while... Pee Wee wasn't going to be beat though. He almost gave it up on the last lap by cruising around a little too slowly.

Good race for Nicky. Maybe this will be the race where things turn around for him.

As bad as I hate to admit it, pedrosa deserved that win. I could probably tolerate him a little better if not for that assbag puig. Of course I was rooting for rossi up til the end, if only he'd had 1 more corner. Shame about all the crashes too. It kinda downplays hayden's much-improved 5th place. Gotta give it to lorenzo too, as if one couldn't already tell, he's definately a gutsy rider to have raced that hard with all those injuries and pain. Same for stoner and his illness. Not trying to jack your thred, but did you here about the debacle that is ama/dmg superbike racing? http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2009/Jul/e/n090705z.htm

Thanks, roger edmondson and dmg for the "improvements" in this series. What a joke. Seriously, ama/dmg doesn't deserve the right to support the motogp series with this sideshow circus act. Hate it for the true racers in the series. What an embarassment.

Not a bad race, nothing like lat year, but good, I would have died laghing if Rossi would have thrown his bike in another foot on that last corner and pushed Pedrosa off the track.

I even give the broadcasters credit, Scott Russell ovbiously heard alot of the negative feedback form his Miller WSBK race, he did his homework and sounded much more comfortable. Way better job by all three than I expected.

Great day of racing...I enjoyed watching all of the races...I too was rooting for Rossi to make the pass at the end.

I think if Rossi would have had 1 more corner, the way Pedrosa was lagging, he could have done it. I have to give "Mr Daytona" a little credit, I heard "Cassi" Stoner and "Pur-dosa" about half way through the first lap. Other than that the commentating was better. Not what Im used to, but better.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Fox has better HD cameras than speed?

Good race, really enjoyed it, was pulling for Rossi to catch him but oh well.

I must agree. Where were you sitting. I was at turn 11 for the GP race then walked up to the hairpin for the second, way better view!

As for the race, I just like seeing the bikes go in really fast circles. Until there is more Kawi Green in the top five I will just stop there.

Be safe and watch your 6!
