Tamada was disqualified after the race, giving 3rd to Nicky.

I'd say it's been an unbelievable rookie season in MotoGP, but that would shortchange his exceptional dedication and maturity. Damn, it's exciting to watch a future great in the making. Congrats, Nicky, you've earned it!!!

Yeah....but then again Bayliss and Checa had crashed out at the first turn...but nonetheless I was impressed by the way he held The Doctor at bay for some time. I think next season we will see great stuff from the wolf boy.

Tamada was disqualified for his passing move. The slow mo shown on SpeedTV looked to me like he was past and the other rider turned into him. I'm sure the race director was a bit tight because of the connection with Kato -- this was widely held to be his home track. Too bad for Tamada, I thought he rode a fantastic race. Fortunately he has a lot of good races left in his career. If they enforced rules like this in Formula1 they'd have to throw out half the field!!!

His first podium and currently 7th in points. He has more skill, guts, class, and professionalism than the supposed all time AMA great champion Mladin ever had, or ever will have. Nicky is the best rider to come along in quite a while. He's going to be something special.
