I don't think at this stage of the season there's been so many riders with a real shot at the title, brilliant stuff!
A great scrap for the win and a better one for third , Marquez rode brilliantly to get it, pass of the day for me.

I believe petrucci is on a stricked Rossi salad diet. The same thing uccio has been eating for years.

I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
I guess ya' all will have to admit Dovi is a contender when you admit that the Ducati and it's engine isn't a piece of shit. Let me know when the painfully obvious becomes too painful.

Very entertaining race. VR looked really good. And that Petrucci is taking too many steroid or something. Meanwhile, why did Crutchlow wait so long, if he was that fast? The times didn't drop-off that much from the medium rears, did they?

Vale could get his eighth. Marc could get his fourth. Or Dovi or Mav could get their first. Most interesting. Honda better do something, if they want the rider's championship. MM is working awfully hard, and sliding the front a lot for a third.

Great rides and race from Rossi, Petrux, Dovi, Cal and MM....

Who says there is anything wrong with the 2017 Ducati on Michelins? Oh yeah, the spanish princess whose talent only works within a very small margin of the conditions (ie on a yamaha on bridgestones on a sunny sunday when no one else is allowed to race him)....

Michelin Accomplished.

This championship is as legit as WWF and most of us still taking stock in the results. Fascinating. Viñalez, the championship leader was eliminated by a tire Rossie gerrymandering, and we're all like, great ride by Rossi? But but, dry vote, democracy.

Any result from the moment the CEO acted as Rossi's sport agent in the closed kingdom of Dorna took out any legitimacy of future results, but let's shelf that? Why exactly? It's MotoWWF every race, where the game is: beat Rossi against every possible advantage. It's really amazing Rossi doesn’t win every race.

Look again at the coverage, look closely to the screen messages, the audio, the glamour camera shots. The entire thing is telling you one thing. And it's only become increasingly sophisticated over the last 10-15 years. Why would this race or last race be any different?

Rossi's participation in this pseudo contest is artificial. It's contrived for the consumption of those not aware or caring about how results are manufactured. This is the sport that petitioned to nullify rules in favor of Rossi to put him in the similar situation now, that a slight attrition would propel him as a title winner.

When we see Rossi being competitive, does the thought cross people's mind (the few that are aware of it) what might tires (and every tangible and intangible advantage) designed for him do to make him competitive against a field that must acquiesce? Or are we just caught up in the moment, look, it's so exciting, it's like a motorcycle foot race?

It's a bullshit contest folks, because the organizers have made it a game of Rossi+advantages vs everybody. Today it cheated Petrux from going into the record books as a GP winner. Today it cheated Viñalez from retaining the points lead. Today it artificially put Rossi into the records as a race winner. It's a manipulate record.

Really?

Maybe LC lost the CL legs when they fired CR then. Seemingly related right?

Friday, eh?

Rossi win = Jumkie mental breakdown. He needs serious help, but I hope he doesn't get any because he entertains us.
