argentina: the doctor vs the kid

so far this has been a rockin season.

vale road that yamaha like an ex girlfriend was chasing him

would have loved marquez not crash out and see that battle continue to the end. but it was a great race. experience over youth.

Awesome to see the Dr. run down a 4.6 second lead. We know MM was conserving tires, but it was still a fantastic ride. Too bad MM made that mistake as it cost him 25 points.

MM96
"It's a shame what happened, because we were having a good race! It was interesting, because our tyre choice was different from Valentino's as I felt we were not as competitive the harder compound. The strategy was working out well for us -it's just a pity about the last two laps. When I saw that he was closing in on me, I decided to conserve the tyres a little. On the final laps I went back to riding in the low 1'39s to check that the tyres were still in good shape, and knew that we would be fighting to the end. When he caught me, we fought for a few corners and unfortunately we touched and I crashed. I've always said that he's my idol and my reference, so you always learn things from him. Now we have to think about Jerez and begin to recover points."

VR46
"It's a great victory, we made the right decision and started with the extra hard tyre. When I saw Marc start with the red one I knew that he would try to push at the beginning. I made a great start but on the first corner Iannone pushed me on the outside. Step by step I came back, and when I arrived in second Marc had a little more than four seconds lead. I knew the race was long, so I knew he could have some difficulty. Catching him lap by lap, I could see him far away but coming closer and closer, it was a great taste! I overtook him in braking, but he is a rider who is all or nothing, he touched me in the corner, then he touched me again as I was accelerating, I think he made a mistake and he crashed. It's a shame because it could have been a great fight on the last lap. In three races we have demonstrated we can be competitive everywhere and fight for the championship."

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Love seeing the old man back up there and love even more that yourgay is going in reverse

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

dude, no idea what's happened to lorenzo this season.

now marquez knows when they catch him, he'll have to fight for the win...

there was a little taste of this a laguna seca a couple years ago, when rossi first got back on the yamaha

that was a great one, it looked like Dovi still had some tire left at the end but I think Marq burned his up by trying to stretch out a lead. Cal also had the same hard tire but still had enough to pimp ianone in the last corner. For awhile I thought nobody could touch marquez but there may be hope.

i think cal surprised iannone... just snuck up on that inside corner. one second he had it and then next thing you know, crutchlow slides right through

again, great race

I'm going to get a Rossi replica helmet and wear it to watch the next race. that last race was so much fun to watch, I can't wait for the next one. Good stuff.

Excellent race. It's nice to see the end of the MM era. Don't like to see those Spanish jockeys win. I'm 6'1" 200lb now...

I stopped watching F1 because of the German's total domination the last few seasons. Moto2 is particularly exciting because any one of 15 racers can win. Moto3 is amazing that in one corner a racer can be shuflled back 3-4 places without even going down.

There is a strong argument for spec. racing where you take the bike out of the equation and watch pilot talent. It is fun to see the M1 under braking/cornering and the GP15 power away on the straights. I guess Honda can do both..

This is not the end of MM93. We have already seen that he makes mistakes, it is how he overcomes them that is awesome.

Lorenzo is pulling a Maverick.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

If I wanted to watch spec racing I would watch moto 2. I wanna see the best bikes and the best riders without giving bikes advantages.

I agree... It's not the end of MM93. But it does show that a third championship is not going to be a cake walk for him. He's not untouchable..
