Just watched the race, the Yamaha is simply no match to win a race right now. Freakin Marquez made big errors and still won the race, while Lorenzo drove his ar$e off, never put a foot wrong and still came 2nd. Kinda boring, some good close calls but nothing breath taking. Glad Rossi showed on the podium.

I miss the good old days of Rossi, Biaggi, Barros (big fan), and co.

Also the Rossi v Gibernau in the early 00s was good viewing, even though Rossi had the edge over him on most occasions, that rivalry was great, they clearly had a dislike of each other. Something that current day Moto GP is missing at the moment IMO.

Anyway Marquez gets another win, that guy is clearly in a league of his own. He is going to be hard to stop not just this year but for maybe the next 5 years.

Oh yes Sete Gibernau, I remembered the guy but his name eluded me when writing that post. Definitely, that guy was class as well. Good times. :)

Rossi! Rossi! Rossi! Still got what it takes! Loved him showing Lorenzo the way home!
Rossi and Marquez are my favourites but I realised watching the race it's still Rossi for me. When Marquez went out I was a bit sad, but ore excited that Rossi was going so fast he pressured him into a rare mistake and then had the chance to win.
Rossi :cloud9: Love him!!

Yes that would be sweet. I assumed it was Honda that made the call to stay out rather than the riders? Loved Cal beating all the other Ducati riders with upgraded bikes and getting a podium. Take that Ducati!!

Good to see Cal get a podium finish, He has had a rough season with Ducati but he's not the only rider to have it tough on the red bikes over the last few years.

No that's the riders' call. You could see the frustration among the guys in the honda pit with the wet bike ready and waiting when marquez didn't come in lap after lap. Purely Marquez' misjudgment.

I just tried finding footage of it on youtube, couldn't find any :( Moto GP is on point with keeping footage off of youtube, holy $#@!
