Damn, Miller crushed it.

You’d think the biggest Moto market in the world could get it together for a premier class venue that doesn’t suck.

Laguna is a brilliant track but as much as I love it, the track itself and the difficult access render it really unsuitable for MotoGP.

Indianapolis was a joke.

Austin in this condition is a joke.

Surely there is a track in this country that would be suitable?

Perhaps Wayne Rainey’s organization could help.

Dorna is comprised of a group of corrupt corporate toadies. If I didn’t love roadracing so much and appreciate the riders participating at this level I would just cancel my subscription and go back to watching club racing.

Aren't the bumps caused by F1 in the first place?

Be thankful its not a go cart track like Indy.

Yes, I’ve heard it said before that cars damage tracks for bikes.

Just bad track construction?

From what I gather it's because cars have 4 fat tires they not only cause ripples in the track from hard braking but also hard cornering. I've also heard some tracks such as Silverstone are constructed on unstable ground. That's just what I gather. I could be wrong.

So they just showed Rossi's famous overtake on Stoner at Laguna Seca, where Rossi went into the dirt on the cork screw. In today's world, would that be exceeding track limits?

Everything is bigger in Texas.

Including the bumps.

Wow, great job from Pecco on pole. Great salvage job for Fabio to slot in behind him. Marquez on the front row first time this year.

Pecco looks supremely confident.

Looks like a promising race!

A famously “dirty” overtake that 46 got away with.

For sure. Pecco was kind of quiet this weekend and then crushes it. Miller had been crushing it and then disappeared. Fabio can't get caught up battling with Marquez while Pecco gets away.
