(spoiler) Istanbul Results

Holy crap what a good race. Nicky looked stong the whole race but fell off at the end. I thought Pedrosa was going to run away with it after he took the lead but it was a tight race all the way to the end. I couldn't believe he tucked the front on the last lap Looks like Stoner's for real although Melandri took the win. I really think Rossi's just bored and needs to challege himself by droping to 14th before starting to race hard

Hayden was looking really strong. I am so impressed with Stoner and Pedrosa.

What the hell happened to Gibernau? Used up his tires too quickly? The curse strikes again?

Yea - awesome race.

Nicky's on the podium more than anybody.

Yes- Rossi is probaby bored (he finished like only a second behind Haden)

Don't know what the hell happen to Sete - seems like he just doesn't have it any more (mentally that is)

- Sam

The Suzi's narrow power band is fuking their tire life ...i feel bad for Hopkins, as usual...Hayden is finally demonstrating the tenacity to challenge for WINS instead of just podiums...he'll get his share this year i think...and guess who's in the points lead...it's all about consistency...Melandri looked good on a track he loves...let's see if this brings him back to the form he had last year...he's been relatively disapointing this year...looks like we've actually got a championship fight this year

Can't wait to see 'em in person in Laguna

I loved Melandri's comment about the lead changes and how it was like a 250 (or was it 125) race - What a great rider - Poor Sete - Pedrosa, runs off the track with his hands in the air? He low sided and can only blame himself - Why was he running like a little girl off the track lkke that? - Still has to mature to a true GP rider but man his little buck 20 ass can move!

GREAT race all and all and was shocked (and happy) to see Hayden as the points leader - Vali goes from 11 to 14 after a wide run and finishes 5 ??? - WOW

If you crashed out of a podium finish on the last lap of MotoGP race, how would you react?

A true GP rider? I guess a 125 GP championship and two 250 GP championship don't quite make him a true GP rider eh?

My bad in leaving the class CC's out of my post - Sorry Rev - When you hear them annonce Moto GP, they tend to classify it with 125, 250 and GP - My comment was leaning toward my opinion of how he ran off with his hands in the air as if to blame someone or something other than the fact that he laid it down all by himself - I have been watchin him race for yrs and he has acted the same in 125 and 250 and to see him do it now in GP or should I say MOTO GP 1000 CC Class that will soon be 800 CC Class, so as not to confuse anyone, i,e the Oracle of Bike racing

Better?

Yeah, 125 and 250 champ or not, he still looked like a prancing girl after he wrecked.

Yeah, sucked about both suzuki's killing their damn tires 1/2 way through the race. They have to talk to Bridgestone about getting tires made out out concrete or something..I think Sete's tires started to go, everybody was passing him.

And as long as Hayden keeps putting it on the podium while other people keep winning, he stands a chance. He needs to get a win or two though, because everybody else that is in the running has one.

Pedrosa was merely trying to signal the grounds crew to help him pick the bike up. God knows, there is no way he can do it by himself.

Nicky did well even though he said his tire warmer melted onto the front disk. He actually considered pitting after the warm up lap.
