Just finished watching Race 2...announcer Steve Martin nailed when he said "this is a cracker of a race!"... waytogo

That Aragon track reminds me a bit of Infinieon in CA.

Speaking of demotions & demerits...Alvaro Bautista was penalized for last weeks crash and will start at the rear of the grid.  Hayden and Rossi qualified for 3rd row (7th & 9th respectively).  Hopefully it will be a good race for Ducati if it continues to rain, since they have shown to be competitive in the wet this year.  Unfortunately, Hayden was disappointed w/ the qualifying session after being in pole position until the end before getting stuck behind a little traffic.  Rossi continues to tweek the bike's set up.

The MotoGP race was one of the best ones I've seen in a long time and the announcers did a great job trying to provide coverage for the different battles taking place ....whether it was Stoner/Pedrosa for 1st, Dovi/Crutchlow/Spies for 4th, the Ducati factory/satellite bikes for whatever place, to the CRT bikes in the back of the pack.

It looks like Marquez will officially move up from Moto2 and replace Stoner for the 2013 season.  Honda seemed to have successfully lobbied MotoGP to change the rule on rookie contracts. 

Hayden ran the 3rd fastest pace today, during practice, at Mugello.

I'll be curious to hear HRC backpedal from their previous claim about next years team. It's amazing how Repsol's dollars can change things.   Roll Eyes

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.

Front row --- Pedrosa --- Lorenzo --- Barbera

Second row --- Hayden --- Stoner --- Crutchlow

Third row --- Dovizioso --- Bradl --- Spies


Ought to be a hell of a start at least.

An interesting comment was made during the Mugelo race...Dovi and Crutchlow are looking to take over Spies Yamaha bike next year...no shocker there...but so is Rossi!  I wish I could be a fly on the wall to hear Rossi's team attempt to negotiate his return after all the friction he had with Lorenzo!

Next stop...Laguna Seca on the 28th.
