yeah props to Colin for one hell of a race too....when he ran off the track the 1st time, for him to be able to battle back to overtake Nicky with only 2 laps remaining was incredible....

Nicky's got a nice lead on top of the points now too

That was so boring, I fell asleep. I might as well have watched the AMA races.

Anyhow, congrats to Nicky!

I agree that the race as a whole was boring, but that's what happens without Vale. That said, the lap and a half that Colin put in after running off was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. When he ran off the comentators, me, my dog and everyone else in the world thought it was over... everyone except Colin. I hope anyone who's been bashing him lately shuts their hole now because that just showed heart and a whole lot of skill. He reeled Nicky in like a spent Marlin and then passed him like he was a lapper. I think in the moment he didn't realize where he was because I can tell you I wouldn't have crashed, neither would 80% of expert racers. Had he realized it would have been a cakewalk, instead he was spit off...

How did he get robbed?

Agreed that the whole race was pretty uneventful until the the last few laps. Nicky rode well at the end and then desperation kind of set in, and things got sloppy. I feel bad for Colin, he probably ran one of his best races ever, smooth and fast and it looked like he landed pretty hard on his back. Made for an exciting finish though.

They both went wide and through the dirt, unfortunately for CE he crashed and Hayden stayed upright. One of the best finishes I have seen in a long time. I was hoping Hopper would be able to get on the box and CE would get his 1st ever win. It's nice seeing the USA riders up front again

I don't think Nicky would have went into the dirt had he not been stuffed so hard by Colin. The last part of the track was where Nicky had made up most of his time, being faster through the section than Colin. If you watch the replay you will see Nicky way wide on the left rumble strip, dives it in, and is forced to stand it up as Colin went crazy deep on the brakes.

IMO had Nicky been able to fully get aroung Colin in the the chicane, Colin would have taken Nicky out.

Great couple of last laps, boring race unfortunatley.

second time seeing the race, and unfortunately Rossi wasn't a factor...and he makes races fun, especially when he gets up front and pretty much mocks the rest of the pack.lol

Not an eventful race until the pulse-pounding last lap. Incredible how the race came down the LAST turn, literally. CE a little too hot, bumped and couldn't hold it up...

good job by nicky riding out the dirt and taking the flag...

also, great effort by The Doc, who was in obvious pain. True champ, that guy.

He was riding over his head and that's what happens.

For all those who bash Hayden for not having the "killer instinct", he showed you why he's leading the points. He doesn't pull bonehead moves like Edwards.

What race were you watcing, exactly?

NICKY is the one that reeled Colin in. He passed Colin with 2 laps to go. Colin panicked (forgot how to brake) and ran off the track. Then in a fit of absolute stupidity pulled a dumb move to try and overtake -- on bad tires -- and riding way over his head.

He could have had 20 points and a nice second place trophy. Instead he crashed out and finished 13th.

Part of having "mad skills" is knowing your own limits and NOT crashing. What good does it do to ride over your head and crash, especially when you have second place in the bag and some MUCH needed points?

It was crazy how Colin pulled Nicky back on the last lap but he was just pushing too hard. Way to go Nicky looking better and more confident every race.

How did Colin pull a bone head move on Nicky? It was the same freainmove Nicky pulled on him to run him down the access road. Hahaha what a laugh, they both went in as hot as they could, trying to get the win, Nicky wasnever gonna make it and stood it up, Col tried to make it and binned it. Wasn't anyone's fault, just like it wasn't Nicky's fault that Col had to stand up and hit the side road.

I'll ask you the same thing, what race were you watching? Both Hayden and CE went into that turn too hot....Hayden went through the gravel but didn't bin it, CE binned it. They both could have crashed in that corner....Hayden got lucky and stayed upright. Both rode their asses off and it is shame that either of them crashed out.

That's what I was thinking too when I saw the race. Both those guys wanted the win soooooooooo bad, things got sloppy. Anyhow, I'm a fan of both Nicky and CE so it was cool either way, meaning I'd be happy if either won.

After his second career win, and his first of this season, a jubilant Nicky said, "It was a wild one today and I definitely enjoyed it - it's just a really good day for me. I'm proud to win for Repsol Honda and really proud
to score Honda's 200th win in the top class of Grand Prix too. At the end of the race I felt really good and really strong. Going into the last chicane he was going in so deep so I used a move I used on Hopkins earlier in the race. Honestly it wasn't going to work and I caught neutral, but he ran off the track too."

Colin Edwards (13th; +40.412).

"What can I say? Obviously I'm really disappointed because I know I should have won that race. The bike felt great from the start and I was really enjoying riding it out there. I knew my pace in practice would be hard for the other guys to cope with and that's how it proved to be. I got the start I wanted and just kept my head down, doing those times. When Nicky came up inside me two laps from the end he left the pass pretty late and there was nowhere for me to turn the bike into. I had to go straight and luckily it was at a point of the track where I could run back on again. I was determined not to lose hold of him and just gave it everything to give myself a chance on the last lap. I got past him and then tried to keep a really defensive line out of the final corner - I had no idea Nicky had run onto the gravel otherwise I wouldn't have needed to do it. Unfortunately I ran it a bit too tight onto the grass and the rear just spun up as I opened the throttle and it threw me off. I'm gutted but fair play to Nicky, it was a great race."

Valentino Rossi (8th; +23.591).

"That was a really hard race for me but Doctor Costa, Marco Montanari and the entire Clinica Mobile team did a great job on my hand and I was able to race until the end. I was in some pain, especially at the start and I wasn't able to ride at 100% of my ability, but it was okay. At the start I was worried how it would go, but when the adrenalin kicked in I started to feel like I could race and by the time we got to the midway point I was feeling much better and having some fun. I lost strength in my hand over the last three laps but I was able to hang on and we picked up some decent points in eighth place. The team have done a great job this weekend in difficult conditions. I wasn't able to do many laps in practice so they didn't have much data but the bike and the tyres felt great so I have to say a big thanks to everybody. I feel very sorry for Colin - he rode a great race and he was unlucky to make the mistake at the end because he deserved to win."

The track is my crack.......................... lucky 7 - ra7or racing
