Catalunya 2005!!!

Sitting here waiting for my shoulder to get back to 100% watching some good ol Moto GP. Looks like I will be back for the august autobahn dates, so until then:

"http://video.motogp.com/ppv_multimedia2/356/356230_48847.wmv"
MotoGP

"http://video.motogp.com/ppv_multimedia2/356/356234_27414.wmv"
250cc

"http://video.motogp.com/ppv_multimedia2/356/356239_1106.wmv"
125cc

you have to open up windows media player and go under "File" then "Open URL" then cut and paste (without quotes) whichever you want to watch. It will stream but you can save it through windows media player. I guess they have caught on to direct linking.... but if there is a will there's a way.

Coutesy of r6messegnet.com.

ENJOY!!!

I have only been watching for one season. That being said, looking at his past record and seeing him in action this year, I would have to say YES!!!

thanks for posting! I love these races, I hope they come back to the US next year

Did Rossi actually pull that one off too??? Last I saw he was behind Giberneau (sp)!! Awesome!! I'd love to be that good.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

alert, spoiler!!!








he dogged him the whole race, it seemed pretty apparent he could have passed him at any time. he waited till there was 3 laps left, then passed him and led the rest of the race.

Not only that, but he set the circuit record on one of the final 3 laps with worn out tires. I'd say he's the best ever. Here's a fun fact: With regulation changes for 2007 (down to 800cc), if he hangs on to win this year and sticks around for 2006, he will be the only one to ever win in 990cc GP class -- fastest ever -- and his lap records will likely never be broken.

That is something that we are use to now. That's his style.
Get Gibernau feeling like he's finaly going to win - then pass him when he feels appropriate and leave gibernau in tears . just amazing...

Rossi is the man without question. But the way he treated Gib is just plain cruel. You can break a man's spirit owning him like that...
