MotoGP down under (spolier!)

Damn, that was a great race, to bad for Biaggi and Barros though (damn did Alex take quite a hit on that slide!)

How great it would be to see Nicky take that #1 spot from Rossi in the closing laps, but Rossi is too damn smart. He slows down the pace to allow Malandri to catch up, and then while Nicky and Marco are dicking around for position at 2nd, Rossi pulls away again.

On another note, did you guys watch the 250cc race? When Stoner crashes, another guy hits the front wheel of his bike, jumps 2 feet in the air sideways and lands it without crashing. Amazing stuff... and the 125cc race was awesome, 5 guys all fighting for 2nd place, couldn't tell at all who had an advantage. That's what racin is all about

SOme great racing over the weekend. Glad to see Nicky moving his way up the podium each race. Im looking for a #1 next week.

It is sad though how Rossi can control the race to his favor so easily. Nicky was all business in the press conference...I think he's a little pissed that Rossi was playing with him on taking the lead.

I was a great race. Rossi is playing mental game with Hayden and the rest. He can do that if your that good and back it up with results. Talk the talk, just make sure you can walk the walk.
