125cc trace truncated to just 4 laps, 250cc race reduced to 13 laps, motogp race postponed to Monday. A heavy downpour played spoilsport to its will and made me look like a sucker!

True, but then JB believes this will make it even more difficult. Riders at the back of the grid will try to run with the front runners when it comes to lap times coz they will think they are on the same tyres, and that will cause more crashes.

Tech will play a key role in deciding the winner, else we will have to go the INDICAR way and get all cars and bikes to have same specs. Thats when the rider will decide the winner...

Ten Sports is going to telecast the h/l's at 9:00PM, so hopefully they should be able to telecast the race LIVE, provided it does not clash with some EPL matches...

Cheers

I think both Ten Sports and Neo Sports (yes Neo Sports will air motogp this season) may air it unless there's some 'Live' program scheduled. It should start at 23.30 IST.

Quite a predictable race!
Stoner winning by a country mile from Rossi, rest were nowhere.

Except the battles for the top 3 places the rest of the race was quite good and it did have a few interesting moments though, Pedrosa amazingly held on to the bike after coming together with Alex, what a save that was. He got hit on his injured knee to top it.

Melandri had a good start, then running it way wide and then staging a remarkable comeback. He finished ahead of Hayden

Was looking forward to see Capirex on the podium and he then bins it. :(
Quite happy to see Edwards finishing well.

Yamaha 2-3-4, wow!!

Cheers

Indeed... Edwards has to have a good year to keep a ride and has to give Toseland an answer for what the latter did...

Good Race at the 2nd pack, the 1st pack stoner, rossi, lorenzo was getting a little boring, good move by lorenzo, going to 5th and coming back to 3rd. One rider understated Mika Kallio Debutant for Pramac Racing (ducati) finished 7th or 8th, good race rode well for his 1st Motogp. Nicky hayden still struggling.

Overall good race

Nicky had a weekend from hell it seems, bike issues in the practice sessions, a 130 MPH highside that left him injured. Its a wonder that he even raced. Towards the end of the race his pace did pick up and he posted his fastest times, so hopefully all's not lost.

Yep, Kallio was great!

Cheers
