The race is on Sunday night... Check out local listing. And be careful, because I think they do not run either the 125s or 250s or maybe both...

Dani came from nowhere and led from lights to flag. Everyone else was taken abak because he is not so fast in the qualis.

Ultimately Honda was the most stable bike and that was the most important requirement for Laguna.

Feel bad for Jorge. He has tremendous speed on Saturday but the crash messsed him up physically and mentally.

very nice race and what a start by Pedrosa, it was his and honda's day from start. Good show by Lorenzo.. apart from that a daring move by rossi at the final turn, infact in the last lap and pedrosa was easing down his pace, rossi near cut down 1.5 odd secs and tried to make a pass in the last lap at the last turn. Good show by everybody.

Lorenzo's been super-impressive this year, he's been braving injuries and would see the title soon. However, I want him to be in the top flight for atleast another 5 years - braving injuries shouldnt worsen his physical condition.

Go Kid.

Sorry to see Divisioso crash. The Honda really suited the track an he was looking good for a podiym.

Lorenzo is fast as hell (as seen in qualifying) but lacks the racecraft of Rossi.

The racecraft and precision are only attributable to Valentino Rossi.hence he is referef to as "The Doctor"

Good guess, but wrong!
Was the intro of the motogp broadcast in 2006/07 season.
Here's the jingle (Rename .pdf to .mp3)
Motogp Intro.pdf

Mods, I do not know if the attachment of the jingle would be called as warez, I just ripped it from my old CD collection. If it is inappropriate, please do the needful.

Back to the action, Jorge leads the final practice and guess what?? Nicky Hayden seems to have finally found the pace to even beat Vale to fifth position in the final free practice time sheet. Good build up to the race.

Well Good race, riders made it tough for Rossi, 1st Stoner then Lorenzo.. finally Rossi took the lead,
the final standings : Rossi - Lorenzo - Pedrosa. With Lorenzo just .099 secs behind rossi. Nice battle between the duo, and leading with 14 points from Lorenzo. Next sunday is the British GP.

Great race ! The gap in the chamionship points is slowly but surely widening now - The Doctor on 176, Lorenzo on 162 and Stoner down to 148 !
