spoiler...So do the moto gp guys have huge balls or what ...

Man to watch the moto gp guys run after the track got wet at 210 mph just amazes me. Congrats to the Doctor !!!!!
I really thought sete was going to take over when the ground got wet.

On the ama front how about that interview with JZ saying he was in fear for his life at the last laps after the red flag...

Tommy hayden was showing em how its done ..

I think jamie Hacking whines to much if he doesn't finish first..
although I think his ol lady is really hot

WOW what a race weekend.

after welkom everyone said he couldnt do that on a high speed track like mugello well he showed them. He is so amazing. Jake Z. looked like he was gonna cry.

Man, what a great year for Superbike at Road America!

Miguel Duhamel continues to be totally the MAN. It was great to see him and his team mate Jake Zempke so closely matched on riding ability and machines- Formula Extreme margin of victory between them was half a wheel- .03 second!

Go TEAM GREEN!!! Tommy and Roger Lee gave us good finishes. Maybe I should take my 10R to RA on Thursday to see if I can match their times..... hahaha!

And Rossi, what can we say about Rossi. He's incredible. The man is a motorcycle riding king. Too bad Nakano had that get off, but at least he got up from it.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN

Should have been there, it was great to see. Miguel is the man and madlin is the baby. Miguel does a stand up almost the whole front straight.
Dano did well and pulled a nice wheelie.

I was standing just to the right of Jake when he was on the podium being interviewed on Sunday. He was lost for words. He had the lead most of the race. Even after the red flag. And a good lead it was. Miguel has a habit of catching leaders though. All in all a really good race weekend. I smelled like champaign all the way home.

MD's victory wheelie all the way past the grandstands was .

Miguel seems to have Jakes number...
He just reels him in each time. ... He's a cagey rider too.. just kind of saves his stuff for the end and leads the money lap.

Xaus is by FAR my favorite rider - Ruben doesn't take shit from the motogp "gods" (or Troy ) - just behind AA the Enforcer. Man - vapor lock happens to the pros too huh? At least he was smart enough to just open the tank

hey Zoombyyou - I bet you'd cry if you just rode 1 lap at Jake's pace... let alone with brake problems... at RA no less - damn thats harsh.

It was good racing all over the TV this weekend - but Nankano's crash was sickening (and more corner workers ripping helmets off... wtf?!) SO glad he's OK!
