Watched the race yesterday and was major pissed that Edwards lost it in the second last corner. I really wanted him to get his first win.
Good on Nakano I think that second place will hopefully push Kawasaki to more top 5 finishes.

The channel would be Eurosport, and as the avatars as looking all are from europe..
Well i am in turkey but american.
The US coverage of anything WORLD based SPORTS pretty much sucks!
Going to miss being here next year for races..:(

I couldn't believe what Colin did. I was looking forward to him finally winning a race, and then he threw it away. It was good to see Nicky win another race at last.

It was also really good to see Shinya do so well throughout the race.

I kinda hate to say this but Colin did deserve to lose the race.
He pretty much just rode to keep the others at bay with a 1.2-1.5 second lead, only to get caught.
But yet when he was 1.5 seconds back, 2 laps left he catches right backup...
So if he would of just rode a little harder he wouldnt of gotten himself in a SHIT STORM,in the 1st place...
Maybe next time he wont "Ride a comfortable Pace"

it's a mark for sport clothing from Italie.

it's forbidden to still use tabaco advertising around here. so they had too look elsewhere.

i'll see if i can find anything about it.;)

I thought the same thing :D

I just got through watching the race. Damn! I wanted a fellow Texan to win so bad. Oh well. I hope this race gives him the push he needs to get better finishes.

Actually if Edwards rode any faster (no one but Hayden could keep up), Hayden would still have gotten on his tail anyway. I think Edwards coming back from being almost punted off by Hayden was simply a matter of "No guts, no glory" and simply going for all the marbles on his part. I actually don't understand why he ran off the track because he was all clear with Hayden in the gravel trap.

Definitely congrats to Kawi. I guess somebody on their team finally got it right this time around. Cannot wait for Donington next weekend!

it was a great race, go hayden, him being so consistent this year is why he (hopefully) will win the championship, rossi- what can you say he's the doctor for a reason, and it was great to see nakano runnin at the front, hopefully this will be the boost of confidence to jump start his season, and maybe light a fire under kawi's ass.

Is it just me, or does the A-style logo look exactly like stick figures fucking doggie style?

Finally saw the race on Sunday when NascarTV decided to get off it's ass and show some real sports...they had F1 and motorcycle racing most of the day. I was impressed. Very exciting end of the race. Anyone catch Hayden's tire kicking out from him when he passed Edwards near the end of the last lap? Right before he hit the curbing after the apex before the chicane, the rear spat out a bit with the front floating a few inches under power, and it looked like the whole bike hopped about 2" off the ground then came back down with a pretty hard wiggle. That's what made him run wide in the chicane, cutting hard to get back on line, which pushed him into the gravel, and pushed Edwards into a tighter line that screwed up his setup for the left hander at the chicane end, which caused him to slide it into the gravel under power and buck the ass end, which kicked him off the bike.
Craziness.

for a while I thought maybe Rossi was just messing with everybodys heads, half way expected to see him start blowing by everyone near the end. I guess he's not Superman afterall.
