Seems like Stoner is spending a lot of time on the paint. Hope he holds on, I'm not a Loren-toe fan.

stoner's a master and a sight to behold on that honda. Soo much control on the edge it's phenomenal to watch. Love to see him in slow mo. Lorenzo is good, but stoner is magnificent. Good race.

Way to go Honda! What a fantastic 1st lap. Nicky looked so good on the Duck. Did you see Colin's get-off in the pre-race review. Pretty cool looking from the tail-cam. Too bad he couldn't get up to speed during the race.

He did for a while! I was excited to see him up front, then the bike started wiggling around and he sunk down the leader board. SUX! I'd love to see him and Vale 1&3!
And I'd especially like to see Colin do something on the CRT bike....
Missed Moto2.

I watched Moto2. It was a huge field. I was wondering why I didn't see much about different manufacturers. Turns out they all use the same 140hp 600cc motors from Honda. No OEM production parts, no traction control, and rain coming in later, made for some exciting sliding too and an exciting end.

Apparently 2012 is the debut year for Moto3 bikes. Airing the next race (Spain) on Speed channel Tuesday. The class is for 250cc 4-stroke singles, replacing the 125 2-stroke class.

This is the third year of Moto2 first year was all Toni Elias, last year Stephan Bradl. The series winner moves up to a MotoGP ride on a satellite team. The knock on Moto2 is that the World Supersport 600's make more power but they probably do weigh more.
