Very impressive ride for Pedrosa and Melandri guts out another good performance.
A great job by Chris V. and a travesty that the Suzuki failed and robbed him of a podium spot.
Last year, who'd have thouight we'd be a little disappointed by a 4th place for KRJR?
A shame for Rossi. Last year's M1 was by many accounts the equal or maybe slightly better than the Honda. What the hell happened? Even Rossi agrees that theoretically this bike is better in almost every way (espcially with the new chassis)but,in reality, the thing isn't quite fully baked.
During the race, Drebber mentioned their seeming lack of focus on what was being shown - he said they were stuck with the EU television feeds. So, their producer had no input on the shots. If I'd been in Freddy's spot, I'd have gone off on a rant.
I was on the hill above the big screen at turn 4 and was hoping to see the bikes as they went behind me down the corkscrew. But, after the start about 3 to 4 lap into the race all I saw was commercials for the longest time. Furthermore I felt sorry for those who paid big money to sit in front of that stupid screen. It's not a very good place to see the race from anyway. I'll stop my rant here and pick it up later.
