Yamaha riders are getting really good at hiding their stuff until the last minute. Although, we know that Mr. Rossi has been a race-day surprise, many, many, many, many, and many times.

Da pole in "Don't Cry for me, Argy"

I got a good chuckle from CLow clowning with Miller .. shaking his seat..

Surprises.. Rins...Pet.. wow. CLow not anywhere near the front row after showing strong.

Dovi getting P3 was great to see. I was hoping for more from Miller.
He is fast for sure. Nakagami has some game this year.

Rain could change it all tomorrow.

My live feed is working perfectly on Apple TV.

What a great Moto2 race! I missed Moto3, so I’ll have to catch it after MotoGP.

He said something about apologizing for being dirty, but it was his post-race reward.

Pretty entertaining MotoGP race in the non-Marquez class. Expecting much of the same at COTA.

Great tactical races in Moto2 and, especially, Moto3. MotoGP was kinda what I expected.

Okay, except the only way MM would need a berm is if he was lapping everyone. Which might be possible, if the rules hadn't changed.

It sure was a hoot to watch Valentino do his thing. No doubt about his race craft AND how much better he is than his teammate. The support classes were good, but I was particularly impressed with the elbows in MotoGP because the speeds are so high.

Even with the NASCAR like rules, Honda has a very competitive bike, which is very bad news for everyone who isn't named Marquez, or Crutchlow. (Not that I think that Cal has a shepherd pie chance of beating Marc in a head to head race.)

jack miller looked awesome today he should've been given the #2 seat at duc instead of petrux .

Rossi is still doing awesome, despite all the bs smack people have been talking about how he isnt competitive anymore.

race direction doubted Crutchlow when he specifically asked them not to doubt him.

marquez is the johnny rea of motogp. no one wants him to win and if he stays dominant like this all season, motogp will take a huge hit in viewership. i personally know about 5 people that arent going to cota this year because its already a foregone conclusion that marc is going to win. not fun anymore.
