Good race for Stoner ... He is a machine this year...

Hated to see the crash of Hopkins and Hayden in the 1st/2nd turn of lap one.

I wish we could get some European announcers - those guys on Fox may know their stuff, but man they we are a bit boring....

I fiugre we lost 1/3 of the race due to commercials... Oh, and when the bikes are running - show the bikes, please...

So what did you think Mike?

Thanks,
Shawn

Yea, pretty boring race overall. Still glad to see it though as all I have are regular network channels, and don't get to see many races.

Hah, no kiddin. Even Spencer screwed up comments about things such as the lean angle indicator. It was in degrees and he referred to it as percent. Just one of the things to nitpick.

But to tell you the truth, other than the turn 1/2 incident even the Brit announcers wouldn't have had much to get excited about.

Yeah, but you have to agree them Brit guys are real entertaining. Sandar the mag likes watching GP simply because the announcers make it more fun for her. Though, the gal does like the Spies, Mladden conflict and thinks Zemke is real cute.

Talking

Hey All;

We watch it on MOTOGP website. You get the british guys with all their great comments and do they know the riders. It cost me 12 bucks. But when it is on speed we watch it there. At least the USA is getting to see the real fast guys and their million dollar machines.
But the races should be a Road America, where they can really open them up. Indy is ok, but awful flat and Laguna is to short. But we have 2 gps now.Thats a step forward. IMHO Curtis Roberts doesnt belong there, didnt a few years ago and still doesnt. If you watched the qualifying you know what I mean. And hopkins needs to give it a rest and stop blaming Hayden. And Hopkins, what are you doing signing a contract with Kaw in the middle of the year. GREAT MOVE.
Im done, im getting worked up.

Zeke
