Yup...but I want to know what happened to Mr. Hayden, from 5th to 7th in a blink of an eye... Sad

Lots of stuff happened in a blink of an eye in those races (Part 1, before big crash and Part 2, after big crash) but Nicky didn't lose 5th place that fast.  Huge kudos to Hayden though to get there from 15th on the start!! Why don't they show that?

I'd have to watch again but at the restart I think it was Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Dovisioso, Stoner, Hayden and then Rossi? ? ?

Then Rossi went through Hayden, Stoner went through Dovi while Pedrosa, the punk, went around Jorge. Rossi got by Dovi which then put Dovi in 5th. Yes?/No? That put Hayden into the fight with Simoncelli and Barbera(?) and what a fight that was!

I thought the end was great. Stoner put a Rossi move on Rossi.  laughingdp applause laughingdp

Hell yes he did.  I was sitting here thinking to myself that Stoner must have been mighty rattled when Rossi came around him that first time, and actually expected Stoner to crack.  But at the end of the day, Stoner got into Rossi's head and came out on top.  Bravo for that, even though he's still a little douche-bag...

Valencia is the last race of the year.  In a way, who cares?  If Rossi is going to Ducati he'll have a few more rides than that you can bet.  Hey, after Valencia they give the bikes to the motorcycle press to ride. Big Damn Deal.

My daughter, her fiance, and his sister are at Laguna Seca for the MotoGP...she called me this morning to tell me she got Vale's & Nicky's autographs on a Ducati hat...she and the sister, both in their 40s, are running around like a couple of teen moto groupies getting all the rider autographs and having their pictures taken with the riders...they even got a pic with Hayden's mother and father...

Interesting chit chat in the Silly Season thread about Rossi going to Ducati.  Apparently Ducati's CEO confirmed the deal in an interview with Cycle World, just to have Ducati's PR guys come out and deny it a few hours later...

Just watched the last Moto2 race...a real good one until about 3 laps from the end when Tony Elias pulled a big gap and held it to the finish...
