Looks like Ducati is finished-again.

What a great race, and Nicky has come a long way about being intimidated by the euros, can not wait to see him at Laguna, I'm counting days now.

Awesome race, and awesome job reporting it with a spoiler warning and no giveaway in the lede.



Yep, Ducati and Rossi are has-beens.

If only more people were into MotoGP in the U.S. That was simply one of the most astounding racing events I've seen in my lifetime.



On second thought, let's not let too many people know. NASCAR is king! (cough...cough...)

The race was simply amazing and, for once, I saw Nicky *fighting to the end* rather than just let the others fight and not risk anything. He needs to continue to do that if he wants to be considered a real champion (whether he wins or not). Now, it would be a possible way to get more US fans interested in GP racing if: 1. they showed the race on a channel with more audience, and 2. the AMA superbike series were not so boring. The AMA superbike goes something like that: suzuki, suzuki, honda honda suzuki ducati ducati kawasaki, jordan suzuki, jordan suzuki, jordan suzuki, *every single race!* (with minor changes). Mladin has so much more power than the rest that he was passing them easily on the straights without even really drafting. I cannot believe that bikes that are essentially identical when tested stock become so different with the mods allowed by the rules. The two lead suzukis are just way above the rest. This is no way to make it fun (although it is still more fun to watch than Nascar...)

My parents came over about halfway through the race and my dad sat down and started asking all these questions.



My mom was ready to leave and my dad said, " not until the race is over."



We may have a new convert.

Truly one of the best races I've ever seen. When Rossi fell back from first to fifth I'd written him off and thought for sure that Capirossi would win the thing. Rossi is amazing, and another great race by Nicky and Capirossi. With those two tied for the lead, and Rossi theoretically re-emerging this will be a fun season.
