I wasn’t surprised by mm’s first crash so guess I shouldn’t be surprised by #2. Noticed that it looks like mm passed Fabio in the pits on the way to wet bikes, if you’re under the limit anything goes? Also think the officials missed Fabio’s pit mistake until the tv production crew replayed it. I’ve been watching on nbcsn so no support races, I might have to correct that.

Yeah, MM, just hops from one bike to the next with nary a toe touching ground. No harm no foul so long as pit speed limit isn't exceeded.

That broken arm lives in his head and has built a nice comfy home in it. Might be there for the long haul.

Guess it does.

Expect him to be near the front after this last weekend.

He rode well. Was fast and overcame a circumstance that could have left him leaving the sport. MM ain’t done.

I'll keep my expectations in check until I see him pushing the top in practice.

There was much angst over the amount that Stoner used his rear brake. A lot of people seemed to dismiss his technique, even with telemetry reports. A decade later .....

Jack deserves it, buuut, I think he's an emotional rider. He's at his best when his backs up against the wall and the pressure to perform has been lifted off of his shoulders. I can't see this being good for him and his championship chances
