From the far-off video that Speed had, the rear stepped out and caught, but at least he hung on and got spun around the front rather than over the top.
He looked pretty wobbly walking through the gravel.

Speed's announcer crew are nitwits.
Something like "These bikes have traction control, they shouldn't do that, maybe it was an electrical problem."

Pretty much a parade.

Stoner shadowed Jorge for the first half, dropping back slowly.
Then started reeling him back in, and then with 10 to go, passed him like he was tied to a tree on the front straight.
Stoner gambled on a soft rear tire, apparently that was a good plan.

Ben was doing well, holding down 4th, then highsided at the bottom of the corkscrew.
Rough weekend for The Ben.

Rossi was holding down 8th, then appeared to lose it on the brakes in T7.
I think he bumped his head, he was wandering around in the gravel outside T8, like he didn't know where he was.

Cal chased Dovi from around 2 lengths back for the whole race.

Forgot that.
Nicky is a bulldog.

Correction on Spies, not a highside, per se.
His swingarm broke.  bang head

17M Euro?

That's the report of what Del Torchio offered Rossi to stay.

I'd say that's a tough one to walk from... Wink
