Some things to take from the race:

1. It looked to me like Hopper made a conscious decision to run the leading pace and show total disregard for killing his rear tire. I guess running up front for 5 laps and then finishing in the back is better than finishing mid-pack. By contrast, Vermeulen conserved and finished 5th(?) or was it 6th, either way, much better than Hopkins. I really wish they'd give JH a bike already.

2. Casey Stoner - great race and I don't want to take anything away, but how in the hell did you not know Melandri was coming up the inside at the braking area before the last section? I'm screaming at the monitor to "move over!"... he did, but no where near far enough. The trick is to balk all the way to the inside and then move back out while braking, short of a banzai move it's impossible to pass. That's what he will improve on to become a consistent winner.

3. Marco Melandri - Watching him reminded me of something Barry Sanders once said when asked why he never celebrated after touchdowns : "Well, when I get to the endzone it should look like I've been there before... because I have. There's no need for it." Well Marco could learn from Barry. 3 or 4 times I was on the edge of my seat thinking he was going to wad it on the cool down lap... wheelies down pit lane? stoppies down pit lane? Wheelies veering off to the last inch of the track? I know someone will say "what about Rossi", but it's totally different. Rossi has class... Melandri apparently has none.

Great racing indeed, very exciting, Hayden lucked out thats why he looked like his dog died. Not trying to take anything away from him, but if it wasnt for Pedrosa crashing out on the last lap Nicky wouldnt have made it to the podium.
He actually just barely hung onto 3rd, Rossi and Elias were right up his ass at the end, one more lap and I bet rossi would have overtaken him.
Giberanau was doing pretty good for a while, how did he end up at 11th?

Yep for sure, Rossi would have taken Nicky. Although maybe Nicky knew exactly where they were behind him.

Great race though, man the punk kids are really steppin' up. Stoner is awesome, should be a great season.

Like on the mo to gp dot com videos, they always have those awesome cameras on the bikes and such. I wish speed broadcasted them. Right before the race started they did show 1 camera on the back of nicky's bike where the seat cowl would be, faced forwards.

the race was insane. first one I've seen in a while cause I odn't have speed channel at school, so I stayed at my parents house to watch it before coming back up. I loved every minute of it... I feel bad for pedrossa because he had been having trouble early in the race with the braking... he tried to over take melandri and overshot one corner on like lap 5 or 6 i think. Great racing though... haydens gotta get his sh!t together..> I love him and all but damn man, get on the pace!!!

as for the honda 123, I'm glad to see that they're finally getting some real riding talent to showcase the power of the bike.

I think he said something about his tirewarmer over heating and melting to his calipers, so he didn't trust his brakes.

The Ducatis and Suzukis are bringing it this year. Starting on the first row, glad to see they couldn't hold it.

"For me, the problem is that big part of MotoGP riders now are pussies,"Rossi declared. "In the past, this is normal, the riders were more like real men. Now it is more like they are children."

Everyone knows im a massive Stoner fan, so i was holding my breath for the last two laps and was screaming to cover the inside on that left hander, melandri pulled that move a few times in the race. He is learning fast though, didnt fry his rear, stayed smooth and kept his cool. This is going to be an awesome season. Hat goes off to Pedrosa too though, the boy was flying to come from 16th. GO CASEY!

what channel did you watch the race on? SpeedTV did not show any of this..

Great race BTW.. I wss rooting for Pedrosa.. He almost won it.. But, Casey was impressive. Marco was as expected. But the real winner was ... HONDA.. Ttheyr are kind of proving their theory that you don't need a Rossi to win races if you have superior machines.

I watch them live on the internet at the "evil" website :) The feeds are so much better and a lot more complete.

To Tuna's point-> Definitely don't count out Rossi! He made a huge mistake in turn 1 in the beginning of the race and lost about 5 seconds... without that he's in the lead battle.

This race was intense! It looked pretty sweet when the 4 Hondas were chasing Sete, I knew he wasnt going to be able to keep them back. Pedrosa was flying! 16th to the lead for a while! If Rossi didnt run it wide on that turn I think he could have won it.

Best race of the season so far...

yeah it was evident, he was running wide on 2 of the turns because of it. Great race tho! +1 on the poor camera angle's.

hayden is really riding well. this was his 7th or 8th podium in a row and he's leading the championship now. but why can't he win? if he keeps this up, the only thing between him and the championship will be a string of Rossi victories. in a rossi-less gp, i'd pick him to take the title... but he's gonna have to win some to hold off rossi for 13 more races.
