It would make Teresa's day! I'll be content to see him in the top 3...or ahead of the CRT bikes. Hey, I'm easy to please!

Ahead of the CRT / ART bikes?  Don't insult the guy!!  He's not riding for Ducati anymore.   Grin

Race for second you mean.

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.

Were you not entertained even for second and the harbinger of races to come?

Wow, what a great show!  Unsure whether to be more excited about "Rossi's return or Marquez' arrival!"  It was great seeing Rossi back on the podium. Equally impressive was seeing Marquez battle at that level for his debut GP race, and Crutchlow keeping pace with the front pack on a satellite bike.

Ironically, Rossi ran out fuel after the finish line & had to catch a ride on the back of a Ducati to get back to the garage!  :-)

I was.  But the excitement quickly wanes at the thought of races being a series of parade laps for the leader, like Losail was.  Time will tell...

Did anyone happen to catch that moment when Marquez had his bike totally sideways under acceleration and was looking like a mile dirt track racer?   Shocked Shocked

How about the front of that Ducati going away and under The Ben during the practice sessions?  Evil -- evil -- evil.  It slammed him as hard as some high sides go.

I think our duels are going to be the Lorenzo/Rossi/Marquez fights and they should be pretty dog gone good.   popcorn  popcorn

Don't get me wrong.  Watching a single leader disappear off into the sunset is not my idea of the great race either but if all the rest of MotoGP this year is as exciting as yesterday's race was then I still wouldn't complain.   Dolph

I am not sure BeIN is fast in updating their program schedule with certain providors...for the Philip Island race, it read as Soccer in the program  guide until like a day or 2 beforehand....
