Every crash, not just the MotoGP one looked scary as hell. It’s crazy how fast a bike goes airborne on real grass. They need to AstroTurf it sometime soon.

Kudos to Vinales, that was one hell of a ride on a track where the rider matters more than the bike. I wish we had more such tracks instead of the modern stop and go go-kart specials.

On the grass or on astro grass? Shouldn't make much difference. Maybe natural grass holds water longer... But if you're off track, you're off track.
This is where I dislike massive concrete run off. Great for safety, but not a punishment enough if ran wide. It's great for safety, but encourages harder moves, knowing if you fuck up, you can rejoin.
Gaz, Bern1 and synn like this.

A crazy race. Will have to watch again. Bautista looked really good. I thought he was great on the 250s and have been disappointed in him since coming to the premier class.

Fucking Zarco had some serious fire in the belly. Would have been even more interesting if he hadn't fucked up. Can't remember the last race with that much passing. Love PI.

I love his reports, his commentary lap on the beemer. In time to come, everyone will see his value to our experience.
I did at first find him irritating, but I'll admit I was wrong, he was new and it takes time to get your feet behind the desk.Are they keeping him for next year? I do hope so and yes he has this funny voice but his knowledge is really spot on now, just needs a bit more time to be as good as Dylan was.
