its camel... thats what it is...

too bad for hopper... man, he was in the mix infront too... sux he had to crash.... i was so hoping he would be on the podium

but dayam... capirossi's move was crazy.. good for him!

melandri ... holy shiyet... this kid can ride too...

i think the moral of this race is... you need good setup and tires - especially not knowing what the weather will be like...

You really got to give it to hayden, considering he has been battling the flu all weekend.

I was crushed when Rossi broke ... for about 17 laps all was right in the world again. The only saving grace is that the circus midget didn't win... my dislike of him grows every week.

Hopper is IMHO the most talented rider after Rossi. Think about this: he is on a HUNK OF CRAP, one that hasn't been competitive EVER, he's giving up a good 20-30 HP and he still has a legitimate chance to win on any given weekend. A damn good chance if it's raining. All that and he JUST turned 23... are you kidding me? He really reminds me of Schwantz... win or crash trying, gotta love 'em.

I am with you. Rossi was in his normal fashion and taking control and I was thinking things are back to normal, then his bike $hit the bed.

I so badly want to see Hopper on the box. I do not have much feeling of the "midget", I can take him or leave him (talented midget though).

Personally I think Hayden needs to be standing on the top of the box soon before I am a believer (Laguna does NOT count).....good racing that is for sure

Werd. I can't beleive Rossi's luck this season! Those 25 points would have made a huge difference on the standings. It's gonna be a tough road to the top...they better get that bike right!!!

I agree with you on robot face Pedrosa, I was so happy when Melandri and Capirossi passed him. His interviews are so boring; hehe it was funny when the audio track slowed down when he was talking...he sounded even more like a robot.

I was really hoping to see Hopper on the podium this race. Although even befpre the race started I knew he was gonna go down cuz the stupid M0T0GP.COM site bunches all the videos together! As hard as I tried to cover up the thumbnails, I still managed to get a glimpse of Hoppers bike on its side.

^^^That's not gonna be around too long ^^^

I rear ended a car a few days ago.......

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He was pissed!

He looked up at me and said "I am NOT happy!"

I said, "Then which one are you?"

haha Damn what a heart break for rossi he was tearin the track and the competition apart like times of old. Did u c how he flew by i think cappirossi and pedrosa then messd with pedrosa only to break away with a 4+ sec lead. only to have that pos break on him. i thought that new frame or fairings what ever they did was goin to get that bike in shape seems like it did but then another prob. Ya that 25 points would have made a big difference in the points. i think hes down like 40.

That was kind of weird. I don't know if he was getting ready for up shifts or what.

It's a technique for resetting your foot position before the corner.

what a race!

so the commentators thought it was pedrosa who caused the problem on the first turn, but did anyone else think it was mb rossi?

then the other crash, and man oh man rossi... what kinda luck is that... he's blowing away a guy w/ soft/soft who didn't look like he had traction problems and ka-blam... i bet he's wishin he was w/ an F1 team ;) heck, i can't stand rossi and i'm startin to feel bad for him...

wtf was pedrossa thinkin soft/soft on a 28 lap race?

and poor hopkins... wot a race :D

oh yea, and is the frenchman ok? he looked like he was in some pain, but no one said anything...
