    Also a side note, other than Rossi winning, an Aprilia CRT bike beat the factory Ducati’s. Must be some not so happy Italians in Ducati managment after the race today. Maybe Ducati should purchase some frames from Aprilia.

  2. Paul McM says:

    The headlines will all be about Valentino winning — and that is indeed an important and crowd-pleasing news item. But to me the real story was Jorge’s courageous ride. Say what you will about Lorenzo lacking charisma or not having the gift of showmanship (like Rossi), but Lorenzo showed true courage and fortitude today. If you saw him at the end of the race you would understand what an effort it took.

    This guy competes with a broken collarbone in a sport where one mistake, just one, could mean death, paralysis, or a career-ending injury. But Jorge hung in there until the end. Give the man his due…

    In the USA, our sports press talk about a “gutsy, heroic performance” when a hoops player goes on the court with a broken finger. LOL. That’s nothing compared to what Lorenzo did today… given the stakes involved (life or death).

    My other comment is this: Crutchlow does have talent, but he is his own worst enemy. Today he had perhaps the worst start I’ve ever seen by a Pole-sitter (who didn’t actually stall his engine).

    @Corey Simmons: totally agree. And I think feedback from the MotoGP flows back to the WSB bikes.

  4. JHB1984 says:

    Ducati should get them self some Kalex frames … it seems they are the best at the moment.
