MotoGP has a Saturday race this weekend at Assen.

WSBK is racing at Imola on Sunday.

Going to be busy with the tely over the next few days.   Grin   Dolph

Haven't watched the race yet but not many people think Lorenzo will be much of a factor but only will be just garnering some points.  Better to get a few points than none.  Could be a tight fight for the championship this year.

This!!

I'm no fan of Jlo, but he did really put on a mean show today.  Big props to him.

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.

I think this race nicely showcased lots of stuff:

ROSSI!!    Good to see him win! That will do wonders for his self confidence & hopefully he will win more but doubtful that he will be in championship contention this year anyway.

Crutchlow....... screwed up the start something fierce and almost wrote him off but the guy has a huge heart and fought back. Could have actually placed better but kept messing up in a few corners that set him back.

Pedrosa ..... super talented, fast as all get out until he gets consistently pressured and if he gets passed it's like stabbing him and hard for him to fight back.  If he had Crutchlow's heart he'd be a champion already.

Marquez .... better than Dani but trying to be a team player until it's obvious that Dani is just not going to hold a fast enough pace so he has to pass him.  There's being a team player and then there's beinga team player but if your teammate is going to fold then what can you do?

Lorenzo....... Big balls and kudos to him for even showing up to race let alone race as hard as he did. Absolutely deserves all those points and then some.  But......... even though he was totally spent at the end of the race you cannot tell me that he didn't have enough left in him to pull up to his teammate Rossi and congratulate him on a race win.  No,  the guy just doesn't have enough class to do that.  It's only that.. class & sportsmanship and I think he needs more.  He can be dour just like Pedrosa, who gives a real rip but if he could finish the race and the give Rossi a fist pump on the track that would really show something.  He just doesn't have that something.

Unfortunately, I think Lorenzo just took himself out of the next 2x races during today's practice in Germany!  He high-sided during practice and landed on the same broken shoulder, which bent the titanium plate on his collarbone. Speaking of balls, he was setting the fastest pace before he crashed.

This blows open the season in favor of Pedrosa and Marquez and improves Rossi's/Crutchlow's chances to earn additional podium spots.  Sunday's race should be interesting, especially at turn 11, which has already hosted multiple crashes!

*Edit:  Pedrosa maybe out for this wkend race due to a crash...he was airlifted due to a shoulder/collarbone fracture and possible concussion.  Marquez will be on pole, with Rossi and Crutchlow in front row...wonder how Bradl will do, in front of his home fans.

In a weird and unpredictable way the season is getting interesting.
