Hell of a battle, glad to see Pedrosa get the win...not that I'm a fan of his, but better him than Jorge...

Funny. My thoughts exactly. And  as much as I like Dovi I thought it rather unfortunate that he squeaked Rossi for Fourth Place.

Kind of ironic really, as one of the commentators had just stated that JB mentioned (the night before) that the next thing they're after is a touch more power on the top end.

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.

Ducati is supposed to be introducing a bunch of mods as of today, I believe, so we'll see what's in store for the good Doctor and the Kid.

At Le Mans...two Audi R18s destroyed in separate horrific crashes, no significant injuries to drivers Alan Mcnish and Mike Rockefeller or to any spectators...

Apart from the crashes that is also some of the most exciting motorcar racing I've seen this year. Hell, maybe the most exciting any kine racing.

How's the weather on that side?

Partly to mostly cloudy, no rain but the roads are wet...hopefully it dries up some in the next couple of hours...doppler & radar loops don't look that encouraging though...
