When I saw Marquez go for the soft I just knew he was fucked. Every time he chooses the soft it backfires but not today.

How good was that? The boys put on a proper demonstration this weekend. Balls of steel, the lot of them.

My thoughts, exactly.

What a fantastic race. I thought Rossi was going to podium for sure. But he just don't get the leeway no more. I may watch that race again, tomorrow. A good day of racing.

I'd watch it again right now but think I may need 24hrs as well just to recover.

I thought Rossi rode well enough for a podium, probably even second, but no-one was going to match MM's late race pace. As you say, he doesn't get any leeway now, he has made a career of never conceding a corner, but no-one is going to concede a corner to him at this stage in proceedings either.

Iím watching it as soon as they post the replay, usually takes about an hour. Lol

Marquez toys with the field, breaks their backs in the last few laps and wins by a country mile.

If he was it was wild. The commentators were saying that scrimmage was so risky to the race prospects of those involved that anyone who could have removed themselves from it would have done so, but perhaps MM is a different animal. He did make at least one miraculous save as is his wont after that attempted pass on him (?Rins or Vinales), but true to form had no complaint himself post race.
