SPOILERRRR ALERT

insane! i thought for sure lorenzo was gonna take first.

amazing that JL and MM were over 10 seconds in front of everyone besides rossi who was trailing by 2 seconds. back and forth back and forth with lorenzo and marquez

6 wins makes me wonder what the most consecutive 1 place podiums in MotoGP is. anyone know?

My vote is for Agostini. I'll look it up though.

Great race just watched it. Unreal battle too bad for JLo.
Yami & Repsol Honda have been ruling this season.

Think JL gave about all he had..Only one that's going to beat Marq....is Marq.
With his new contract this is going to go on for a long time.

Was up for the 6am showing of the race at LeMans followed by the new race in Italy. I was worried for a bit that Marquez might be second.
Little Marquez was taken out of Moto3 with half a lap to go.
Top it off with some IOMTT and you have racing overload for the weekend. Funny how IOMTT makes MotoGP look like a bunch of blouse-wearing poodle-walkers.

i just dont think marquez has much competition right now. hes on a whole new level. every so often in racing a game changer comes along and pushes the boundaries of the current racing set up. its gonna take someone who isnt even involved in the series yet to take him on

Hmmm - Not so Fast - While I agree that M2 is a very good moto racer - I think alot has to do with the moto itself. And it seems that the Yami is not as good.

just my .02 - I could be wrong

My .02 says he is very much the reason for the success. Yes he has the hot moto right now but his ability to pilot said machine is special, very special.

MM is definitely kickin *** and not even taking the names of the asses he kicks...

My son and I have been watching his older MOTO GP2 races. I'm a big Rossi fan but I got to give it up to MM.......HE IS GOOD and no one can stop him right now.
