    Crazy race. Funny with all the rides off track, and rides thru the pits the same guys ended up in the front that started in the front. Felt sorry for Bautista. He is really riding that Suzuki hard. Was hoping to see him on the podium. He’s got buzzard luck. He does however make the most stylish slides when coming off his bike. There is no doubt that Stoner is the fastest rider in Moto GP right now. The guy is riding amazingly fast. That tank slapper would have left a brown stain on my leathers had it been me.

    I think that Rossi got caught up between Spes and Lorenzo and bumped against each other, Rossi got the worse of it…just to be fair to him.

    Crazy race. Stoner is impressive, arguably the best right now in GP. When he saved that tank-slapper I was pretty impressed. Spies and Rossi episode sucked. Hayden blowing it sucked. I still have half the laps on DVR to watch. It’s pretty much Stoner, Pedrosa, or Lorenzo in any order any given race. Still fun stuff.

    Not happy with Rossi knocking Spies off track… but what a run by Spies charge back through the field! He went from last place to 6th right? Incredible. Crazy with the jump starts – pretty interesting race. Happy to see Stoner act like a human and make a mistake.
