I got real lucky and caught the broadcast. I was glad to see Rossi take it instead of Pedrosa. :lol: I was unable to catch the after race comments to see why Nicky started to drop back during the middle of the race. But, it was good to see him come back toward the end. Overall, it was a good race to watch. :thumbsup: Just hope I can catch the next one.
Hopper suffered major rear traction issues, West had traction problems front and rear.
I couldnt believe the lap times Rossi and Pedrosa were doing towards the end of the race on a semi-damp track!
Apparently there was a strong tailwind down the back straight making Pedrosas bike go quicker than he was geared to go causing his engine to overrev, this is why he "backed off" in the last three laps.
Once again Rossi has shown why he is the master, ive never seen anyone else stay on the ragged edge for so long.
It looks like being an interesting year, Rossi/Pedrosa/Lorenzo/Stoner all with a good shot at the title, it hasnt been this competitive at the front for a while.
