Donnington MotoGP (spoiler)

What a wierd race that was, half the field crashed out in the first 5 laps due to the horrible conditions.

As boring as it is to watch Rossi win yet another race, I'm amazed at the near high-sides he saved himself from, and that ridiculous lead he pulled away with in the last few laps.

Despite the fact that it's slower, and less ambitious with respect to passing etc. I like watching the rain races.

It's wild to see the best of the best have multiple "oh shit" moments in a lap. Better to see who is actually consistent, and who just knows how to pin it and hope for the best.

Of course, it's also cool to see Rossi emerge as a man amongst boys even in the harshest conditions...but that might just be me. I do love a dynasty.

For those that have it TIVO'd...I could have sworn I saw Roberts Jr. try to flattrack it a few times. WTF?!

I thought the MotoGP was kinda boring since half the field crashed out but HOLY CRAP did you see the 250 race??? That was one epic fucking battle between Stoner, West, and De Puniet.

Yeah, what a great race!...but who was leading well past half way through the race? West and DePuniet were battling for 2nd and 3rd....I go take a piss and come back and they're battling for 1st and 2nd! Someone (don't remember his name) was well ahead of these two before the incident.

Yep, I saw a foot down on a couple turns....lol He was probably shitting his leathers, wobbling into a turn.

Hayden's wipeout looked like it was in slow motion. And the Bayliss-Malandri tangle was just silly looking.

Hiroshi Aoyama had a big ass lead and threw it away while passing backmarkers.

i think those where more oooh shit moments, I have a series of pictures of Roland Sands flat tracking as you would say (putting foot down) going into turn 5 at road america. he got to the first brake marker a bike length behind a rider and was up the hill before the other guy made it through the turn!!!!!! he ofcourse won the race. I think this was in 98 or 99 cant remember what year but it was cool
