Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.

WOW...race #1 was amazing!  From the first few laps to the final lap...talk about sliding into home plate for 3rd place.  Those wet rumble strips are a wee-bit tricky.  Dolph  

Race# 2 was not as thrilling.  I'm sure Sykes would have appreciated them calling race #2 before he tumbled out!

I'd be SHOCKED if Dovi went anywhere near the Desmo. He's seen that thing scuttle too many a GP career.

Might just have to eat those words...

Factory might pay better than Satellite and certainly better than no ride at all.

Not only has Stoner hit the nail on the head, he's pounded it flush & true.

Sorry Majdi, if the shoe fits then wear it.

Funny, Teresa sent me the same article at work today!  Stoner brings up many valid points...and I've previously mentioned that Stoner modified his riding style to suit the previous desmo and win, while Rossi refused to.  Then again, I don't blame Rossi for not pushing the bike beyond the point of diminishing returns, to risk injury, a DNF and no team points.  

Stoner is an amazing racer that I enjoy watching, but even he constantly complained the previous desmo had inherent flaws that limited his performance...so, it's a bit easier now to point fingers while he has a great ride.  In the end, I can't blame Stoner for relishing in the moment for the way Ducati treated his exit and created a marketing campaign blitz to welcome and embrace Rossi.  While, I'm a #46 fan...I genuinely hope this has been a humbling experience for Rossi, Burgess and friends.    

It won't happen, but I'd love to watch Stoner, Rossi, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Edwards race on the same bike setup for a grudge-match fundraiser.   Evil

Hayden is definitely out...his wreck looked scary and he briefly lost consciousness from the impact. Stoner's right ankle will be re-evaluated Sunday morning, due to a fracture and torn ligaments caused by a high side crash.   Hector Brabera is headed to Spain, after Friday's crash, for more tests after fracturing three vertebraes...he will be replaced by Tony Elias.

Spies will start 4th, but likely has ligament tears after his massive high side.  I hope they have a safe race tomorrow.
