I doubt it... last race was promising for Nicky too but he seems to drop back as the race progresses.... not sure what's happening to the tire or the bike during the race.

I'm really starting to like Bradl. The kid has a great attitude and he is fast. Crutchlow is impressive as well. My money is on Lorenzo to win.

Not sure why Bautista would try such a desperate move on the first corner, first lap. Assanine.

Hard to believe someone can have as bad as a start of a season as Spies has. Supposedly "hand sized" (seems a little exaggerated) chunks were coming of his rear tire.

I don't remember which riders went for the hard option... It may have been Rossi and Spies...both their tires were messed up mid way.

Messed up doesn't begin to explain it. They are lucky nobody got hurt.

That is crazy - Someone needs to be fired over that

for what it's worth, I'd rather be taken out on the first lap rather than late into the race like Rossi taking out Stoner. kekekeeke

Holy crap... Is that rossi's tire?!?

At least bridgestone is investigating this. But hell. It looks like how people would re tread tires in the 60s by burying them in sand...

You're right, bug, someone should definitely be fired over that

I guess something similar happened to Spies's tire. He hoped that Dovi would pass him in case his tire blew out and he crashed.

With a lap or two to go Spies turned around almost telling Dovizioso to get past him.

Moto3 was btw. One of the best races I've seen in a while.

Not as clear a shot as the pic of Rossi's but you can still make out a pretty sizeable chunk missing on Spies' rear tire. Crazy!

I think the crazy part was that Spies noticed it was F'd, yet still did 3 laps at a respectable pace.

yeah i t was crazy... it was a good fight for third, and then spies started to pull away for a bit, then next thing you know he starts to drop back. i started freakin swearing at him because he was looking like a lock for third.

how many right hands on that course? man my leathers would have been full of shit. literally.

but yeah. he did run a good pace even after his tire started to disintegrate.

I get so frustrated with MM and his damn straight line speed. 74.32% of his passes are on straightaways!

Pedrosa's gonna bitch slap him next year

Jesus, the last 6 laps of Moto3 were the best racing I've seen all year. Maybe in years.
