Oh boy, i watched all the 3 races and the best had to be the 250CC catfight between simoncelli and barbara. I thought simoncelli was too agressive and probably he was desperate for a win on home ground. He side sweeped barbara once and i thought simoncelli was going to take the lead and win the race.

Barbara went wide and came back on and overtook simoncelli and immediately after that the italian lad fell while taking a sharp right. But, good show my simoncelli too as he immediately got back on the bike and still came 5th.

Hector is the way to go!

In the 500CC, the doctor had it nice and easy. And, no doubt the doctor is the most accomplished rider in Motogp history ever. I am totally in awe of him

Race weekend once again, and this time it is Indianapolis. Rossi Going in for 4th in a row after a last 3 finishes. Has an Advantage of 75 points on Casey Stoner.

what say guys?? will stoner reduce the points margin, will rossi continue winning, will pedrosa catch up, will lorenzo be able to make to the podium, Nickyhayden home ground victory do we see it. or will the other pack of riders make an impression.

Oh yeah Hayden on plans to move from Repsol Honda and join Ducati.

It is confirmed news now - Nicky Hayden is gonna move from Honda next year, though he is still tight lipped about whom he will ride for.

We know it's mostly Ducati since Melandri has given no news of confirmation for next year.

Red flagged just when it was gonna get fun, nickyt had just gotten ahead, and rossi was on the charge. Anyways, Rossi won as he was leading past the start finish line on the previous lap. Hayden second, and i think Lorenzo third, casey next in fourth place.

Fun yes, but safety is paramount! I think it is safe to say it is championship #8 for Rossi this year! After Wayne Rainey, the doctor is the only one who has shown the passion!!! He has a thrist to win and conquer all which is most endearing!

I went out for a movie " Rock On" last night and was in mixed feelings because, i loved the movie but was grumpy at the same time, thinking i missed the race.

And, when i come home and switched on the TV, voila due to rain the race was just about to start. I sunk into my sofa with a minute maid and was glued to the entire 20 laps.

What a race! As i already predicted, the doctor won it comfortably. Had the race been stopped even 1/2 a lap later. It would have been a 1-2 finish for Yamaha as Lorenzo was about to overtake Nicky when the marshalls called off the race.

But, the highlight of the race was rain pouring like crazy, the heat put on by Rossi on Nicky for almost 5 laps before he overtook him and ofcourse, in such trecherous conditions, not a single crash.

I just love the doctor
