Any guy that can bang fairings for 20+ laps and falls in gravel only to remount without losing a posistion is a bad a$$. It was close. The end doesn't do justice to the actual race.

Rossi's gonna pull out one more championship me thinks. Stoner and Pedrosa are both tough, but he's got one more in him. Great race. Missed the rookies cup unfortunately.

I think stoner gave away the race win and showed his immaturity as a rider by dueling with Rossi so early on big mistake, shoulda just sat back and waited until the last lap maybe then he could have won.

I mean why pass the guy with 29 to go if youve out Qualified him. Stay back and dont show him your cards until its too late. Dummy move to think he could go head to head with Rossi. IMO Rossi threw out the bait and the kid couldnt resist. Again young rider stupid move.

Oh yeah? Well you just RIDE your Hog-Glide or whatever, and we'll put Rossi on his YZRM-1, and we'll just SEE who comes-out on top!
