WOW....WHAT A RACE~!

I Just hope you guys caught the Italian moto-GP yesterday. It was really one of the best races I have EVER seen!!

Rossi was just fan-bloody-tastic! On a bike that was atleast 10mph slower than the Honda's, he was still able to stay ahead of the pack of Honda's breathing down his throath. Rossi was a man possesed! Just flinging his bike into gaps that were not there to begin with! And just when he was begining to make a small break with 5 laps to go....it starts to RAIN and the race is red flagged!

New regs mean the race is restarted as a 6 lap shootout! I thought Rossi is done for as he just isn't very good in the wet, but with the track almost dry and all teh riders starting on slicks, there was a chance! He didn't start well, but with 3 laps to go, he made his move and took the lead, which he then held onto from a hard charging Sete!

If you missed it, make sure you catch the repeat! Rossi really is a master of Moto-GP!

It truely was a race worth watching. The 6 lap shootout was an absolute cracker. Towards the end, positions were being changed with every heartbeat and nothing could be said till the race was finally over. The former SBK guys also had stints at the front of the field.

it was a fantastic race. Rossi is unbelievable. but did you guys watch the 125s and the 250s? that was absolutely crazy racing. so much overtaking, i had a tough time keeping up with the race. especially the 125s , the 18 year old casey stoner is a darn good rider, even though his KTM is down on power compared to the other Aprilias

Im sure 30-40% of F1 European viewers have now shifted to Moto GP.
The excitement offered is unmatched.

I didn't enjoy it that much. the rain spoilt it all man. I was looking forward to see Rossi and Sete fight it out till the end. There was absolutely nothing between them.

If it hadn't rained, things would have been much more interesting.

Even the recent Indy race was stopped due to rains.

On that front i think F1 and WRC are a much more complete motorsport, be it sunny, rainy or snowy, the show always goes on.
