that was one of the best races i have seen in awhile..its really good to see nicky coming around with the ducati...almost had a podium by a few hundreths..rossi is deff. the prodigy of moto gp racing..im also impressed with dani and his starting, he is awesome off the line..i think he may drag race in the off season ha ha...what can i say about casey? he had it in his hands and bad luck struck again..i think he must have hit a little sandy spot on the track. very dissapointing for him after such a good week of qualifying.ben is also coming around with that old tech 3..if lorenzo stays healthy the races will be between him and rossi most likely.how about the hondas strait away speed, imressive compaired to the others..

yes, the tech 3 team has two good ol boys from texas, ben spies and collin edwards..collin has not done alot with it, usually ends up around 5th or 6th after the season in points not too bad..this is bens first year so im not expecting any podiums but who knows.he has a long way to go before challanging the top 5.the tech 3 bikes are last years race bikes so they are down on power and technology from the rest of the main factory riders..

It would be great if someone could keep us noobs posted on the races when and where they can be seen. I'll be watching out for signs of the season starting!

Don't count out Ben Spies..LOL Or you'll be making a big mistake....LOL The only thing holdin him back is that pos tech3 yamaha. If Stoner would calm down a bit.I think he will take care of business.Nicky wll get some good finishes but i don't think he'll make it to the top step.

if you live in the usa, cbs usually airs 3 races a year luguna seca, indy, and germany. fox may also have one race this season but not likely.the only way to really see all the races in their glory is to subscibe to motogp.com..they also have 24 hour passes fairly reasonable and you can catch up that way..i have had the all excess video pass with hi res. races for 3 years now but have been keeping up with it since 1984...i use to live near texarkana, tx and freddie spencer was a hero around those parts since he was from louisiana..oh yeah you can see all the races on speed channel too but like the other networks its limited on content as far as the before and after race footage and all the "drama" as they say..

man im just glad to see him finish to be honest..it has to be hard to go from champion to 15th and 16th all the time when stoner is kicking butt on the same bike..you can tell he hasnt done an interview in a long time, he sounded more nervous than usual after the race..

Definately keep your eyes on Spies. His contract is with Yamaha, not Tech 3, and he's their insurance policy in the event Honda throws a ton of money at Lorenzo (or less likely, Rossi goes to Ducati- I don't see that happening, though).

I was real happy for Nicky. I think he needs to loosen up some. Let it go...... But in all fairness I was listening to to motoliam.He said Stoner is the only rider that can ride past the traction control and other set parameters on these bikes.Which he said is truley amazing and talented.

Yep i know his contract is with yamaha. He's still under the tech3 tent so....But now that i think about it.It would have been worse if he would have went to Rizzla suzuki.(IMO) As far as insurance,Don't know how good that would be????? Because if Lorenzo did go to honda and they moved Ben Spies up to Fiat.'m pretty sure Rossi's not gonna like that at all and will run to ducati.LOL It seems Rossi donnot like to share the spot light with his "teammates"..LOL I'm pretty sure Ben is not gonna play the back seat driver roll for anybody.So that will be even more friction for yamaha.
This should be a great season!!!!
