  • Bryan

    Wow. This is what we want to see. Just about the top 20 within at least 2 seconds of the top riders.

  • TexusTim

    too bad espargaro messed up he would have had pole, I dont think the open bikes can hang on to the top spots for vey long then when the tires fade all the factory bikes will go ahead of them…this of course does not have any bearing on Mr. Marquez he may jump out front and stay there…wow I hope him and espargaro will go at it for a bit.

  • Slangbuster

    Great to see this new generation of riders taking it to new levels (Marquez, Espargaro, Smith and the rest) I can hardly wait for tomorrow and what the new season will bring, it’s going to be a good one. And a big tip of the hat to “Bowling Ball Bautista” for riding like a demon today without knocking anyone down, bless his heart. I’m starting to like him. I sure hope the 800 pound Gorilla (Honda) is embarrassed enough by the results so far to give Nicky some real motor soon.

  • L2C

    Yeah, Nicky definitely would have eliminated Crutchlow, at least, from QP2. Lost his brilliant final sector push on the long straight. Was a big bummer, I’m sure.

  • Crutchlow’s reaction to Nicky’s late charge was brilliant. I was glad to see Crutchlow make it to QP2, but it would have been fantastic to see Hayden blitz his way through.
