MotoGP Germany ***SPOILER!!!!****

i thought at first it was going to be boring, but watching Hayden fall back a little then come to finish on podium was amazing. im glad he is back to his old self. what are yalls thoughts on Hayden? i know he isnt going to finish in the top 3 and all but nonetheless, hes doin good.

Boring? You kidding me?

My boy wins and Hayden from 15th place comes and takes 3rd. No way that was that boring.

I don't know if you guys noticed but it looked like HRC did something to the Repsol's engine. It's pulling harder than before. Coming out of the last corner, Nicky passes Randy DP's bike like it was standing still. And the Kawi's bike are no joke this year.

And Dani finishing the race with what?...12/13 seconds ahead of Cap?

I was proud of Nicky riding like a man on a mission. Can't wait to see the next race.

His engine blew up, I believe. And the president of HRC was there when it happened. The commentators were saying he wasn't happy when that happened and probably said a few stern words after the garage doors closed...haha

Go Honda!!!

I meant the President of HRC said a few stern words, not Nicky.

i said that it was boring at first. i thought it was just going to be one of those races where nothing really happens, everybody just spreads out. by no means did it turn out to be a boring race. hayden was dynamic pushing through to podium.

Yeah Dani led at a very impressive pace! I hope Michelin is gonna start coming through with their tires for the rest of the season.

Nope, same exhaust set up. The Gresini Riders and the LCR got the same set up that the factory teams have had for the past few races.

Its was definetly a tire race. Everyone was saving them for the end, so it was slow at first. Nicky was running on rails though. Hopefully he can be dialed in next week. Bummer for Rossi. Leaned over just a little to far caught the plastic and lifted the bike. Too bad pedrosa won, I hate that little prick.

that was the fact that RDP had no way of gettin the power of the kawi to the road, due to a melted bridgestone, while nickys and danis michelins were stll on song!!! he did the same thing to stoners duke a few laps before.... and that thing has way more gas that the honda.....he and dani road great races...

Weren't you the biggest Pedrosa fan ever? Did you have a change of heart? :)

Hayden done good, that's for sure. I wish Honda had made these changes much earlier in the season.

Yea that was an awesome race!

And Nicky blew (2) motors and wrecked another bike!

Wish Rossi wouldn't have gone down but yea hell of a race for Nicky! Colin was coming with him too! Nicky went by Colin easily but Nicky didn't pull away, must have woken him up (lol)

happy for Pedro too, he's been getting frustrated to of late and I'd hate to see him go elsewhere! Hope this helps to settle him down!

I can atest to the fact the "new" engine is pulling hard as ****. I was their and personally watched pedro take off from the ducati and the rest of the field and hayden made it look easy when he passed people. They must have done something new to the internals. It gernaded on Friday so the HRC guys must be doing something different to get more power out of the engine. Maybe Honda has been holding this engine back all season to see what it is and is not capable of.

I have to comment on how boring pedrosa is. The interview after showed that. I understand that he doesnt speak english very well, but come on, you just won the gp and look like you have to take a dump. No offense to the pedrosa lovers.

You gotta understand that Pedrosa is one of the most humble riders on the grid.. he showed his happiness on the podium and shed a little tear during the anthem... but when it comes to interviews, he didn't point the finger at himself and said it was all him...

Sure, his humbleness is boring for the fans, but we will get another Spainard that do all that next year..

BTW, Rossi is aging slowly huh? So many mistakes this season.. and a big one this time... boy, I think his wins won't come as easy as when he was a young gun..

Another note, Anthony West has more points than Sylvan Guintoli.. this makes West the leader for the rookie of the year... yeah, this year's rookie title is kinda boring.. we'll have a better list next year!
