Default Blue skys...

Three wins for Blue today, thanks to the two current best pilots in GP and Super.
Dont care how boring these races seem when Ross or Speez clear off- they still have to keep the rubber down for all laps at their mindnumbing pace.
Its a little hard to comprehend 13 yrs, 100 wins, and exactly what it takes to accomplish. Not just talent for Damn Sure.
Kudos to Tex, want to see him on podium next race.
Nick seemed to make progress.. until he seemed not to.
What was up with Case for end interviews?
Ill? Angry? Hurt? Anyone know? Odd.
For this hopeless Yammerlover, another glorious dayoff of: hangover, java, races, pizza, basking in glow of Speez n Tino.
Sigh.

Default mid pack racing

Although watching the top five finishers at Assen was a snooze, the contest for sixth through 11th places was great, especially for European fans who, unlike most Americans, aren’t as hung up about trivial things like, you know, winning.

i totally agree with this statement. racing at this level if you want to get something out of it. you have to look farther back in the pack. to get your entertainment.
there were some riders today, who had spectacular finishes to their raceday.
team repsol, race 2 sbk, haga and biaggi

Call me ANAL, I think the racers are all GAY as school-children when running at ASSEN. BUTT, anyone riding the MotoGP series is a credit to their SEX.............

So. Bolding the text subverts the smut-filter?

****PIT

I guess not.

So what happened to Stoner? I was sort of watching and I saw him dicing it up with that little Italian twerp at the front. Then suddenly he was gone...

How about Nicky being able to run in that pack of 5 for 5th. I think that Ducati has found something that works for Nick. Now if they can just keep the clip-on's bolted down he may finish the season with three or four top 5 runs.

Ace, you forgot that Assen is his only non Laguna win. Like Edwards (who also did well yesterday and handed said win to Nicky 3 years ago) they love that track. We'll see what after Laguna brings before I start getting hopeful for Nicky and the Duc. I'm hoping your correct, but these two tracks seem to be an anomaly typically.

Or you can just look back to the last race at Catalunya where the front of the pack displayed some of the sweetest racing this year.

yip it sure did. rossi and lorenzo looked like a pair of 125 pilots, the way they traded places for the lead on that last lap. very rare to see on the 800's don't you think?
