    Great race. Spies… sigh. Crutchlow was impressive to say the least. Hayden looked great until he shredded his rear tire and fell off the map. Lorenzo put on another master class. But that Crutchlow!

    Maybe because he is retiring but it looks like Stoner has lost the killer instinct of the champion. If someone passes him, he doesn’t put up much of a fight. He tries to repass once and then seems to be giving up. Or it maybe the father thing.

    Shame on you Crutch, now you’ve gone and made Dorna outlaw riding with broken bones, all in their quest to achieve mundane sameness. Great ride Crutch! And why isn’t Yamaha kissing his boot straps?

    Spies needs tires that last, it was reported that they ran out of tread after the first 5 laps. I’m interested but doubt we’ll ever hear why that happened. His first 4 and a half laps were what he is truly capable of running, like he did in Assen last year. I’ve not given up yet.

    Spies was unlucky yet again. I think he’d be 3rd if he hadn’t run off. Lorenzo and Stoner were in a class of their own. That Yamaha especially seems to be handling really fine. Crutchlow was awesome, carving his way through with the fractured ankle.

    Not bad entertainment for a car track, at least when it’s dry.

    The aliens are everything they are hyped to be and Crutchlow was amazing.. Thought for awhile that Spies and Hayden were going to kick some azz, but in the end proved to be normal Spies and Hayden.

      well maybe hayden, but Spies was anything but normal. this round, he played his position and earned his #2 money. blocked at the front and allowed lorenzo to pass who eventually went on to take the win. strategically a perfect weekend. what occured is exactly what was supposed to occur. the “all chiefs/no indians” model doesn’t work.
