Wow what a save by Pedrosa. Excellent save and recovery to win it! Damn shame Melandri couldn't hold his line to maintain 2nd place. Twice he passed Rossi who is not giving up without a fight. The points are now really close.

i would say rossi is still amazing, from the bottom of the grid to second is quite a feat. and i dont know why buti dont like pedrosa, he didnt really seem enthused about winning.

Great Race!!!

I really would have liked to see Hopkins stay up in the top 3. This race just goes to show how good Rossi really is, the guy started in 9th position or something, has a broken wrist, and had an excellent finish for second place!

I can't stand Pedrosa...just wanted to reiterate that

other than Rossi's great race and some decent dicing at the end for the final podium positions, kind of a boring one...

What broadcasts have you been watching man??...that's the standard format...no time for pre-race stuff in the American market...go to www.motogp.com and sign up for the full coverage package if you want all the behind the scenes coverage.

I'm glad Rossi did well, great race for him. Even my girlfriend was on the edge of her seat during the last few laps, nice close racing for second.

+1. He does seem to be getting good grid positions, and then just letting them melt away during the race.

I wish ESPN would pickup some motorcycle racing so it would be available in HD. Speed's PQ is so bad.

Pedrosa's personality sucks. I figured that last few times on the podium he might have been pissed about not winning. Today he won and still had nothing to say.

Another great race though. The race for 2nd at least.
