Great rides from the top three. Rossi was able to stick with Stoner until the back straight, Rossi had no chance. Tried a few times to outbrake Stoner made a mistake and the race was over for Valentino.

Elias at it again.

its the perfect time for me!

good race, real shame for hayden... just when he was showing some promise.

flawless ride from stoner, rossi didn't really have much of a shot against that dukes power but he rode brilliantly anyway.

congrats to hopper too!

Perhaps he's looking to take Chucka's moniker and reputation?

A bit processional in a lot of the race, IMHO but an excellent result for Casey. Good bit of fighting (occasionally) with Vale and I was well made up for Hopper.

But what happened to Colin Edwards?

Personally, not interested in Nicky's results - the guy never did it for me (ooh er - controversial.....).

haven't saw the race yet (like ben said, way to early to watch a race ) and I probably won't see it since I'm out this afternoon when they're going to show it again, but first of all: YEUH!! I didn't lost the bet

my dad told me the up's and downs a bit now, what do you all think of elias now? what I heard from my dad is that he had SO much speed while going in that long corner, and he saw just a tiny little gap and placed his bike there, nocking of other riders and make it very difficult for others. I still like him, but he needs to learn how to ride with his head sometimes

stoner again nmbr 1 who would have thought crashey could be this consistent?? his wife must have a good influence on him

Edwards is shit. He'll blame his tyre or some shit. I just hope the sack him at the end of 07.

Im interested in Haydens results, seeing how far down the table he finishes this year.

Honda have made a fairly shite bike. When Pedrosa stays on hes the top guy but hasnt been in the fight for a win. He was 8.6 behind stoner in qatar, 1.2 in Jerez (pretty damn good), 14 secs down in China!

At least Michelin sorted out their tyres, now Yamaha need to get more top speed. It's great watching Rossi make up the time on the brakes and the corners though.

I also enjoyed watching that
I already had a feeling it was gonna be a difficult task for Valentino.
Shanghai suits the Ducati better cause of the long straights. Nevertheless, Vale did a good job, he was trying so hard, and that resulted in a mistake. Really a shame, cause after that it wasn't that excited anymore..

Many congratulations to Casey!!!!!! Today, he and the ducati combi were just too good, simple as that!! Again, no mistakes from Casey. What a great start of the season for him, winning 3 out of 4 races..not bad I would say

I'm also very happy for Hopkins. He was quick all weekend. Today he rode a very solid race, nice to see him on the podium!!!

Dani did a good job as well. Maybe not a great result, but good enough imo. At least 4th is better than 12th.. Can't imagine how Hayden must be feeling, what a terrible start to the season..

Anyway, can't wait for Le Mans

The Rossi-Stoner battle will be interesting for sure...

I was thinking the same thing!

Congratulations to Casey! Job well done!

Congrats to Vale too. Everyone has to take risks, and sometimes it doesn;t go the way we planned but nevertheless, we take them. So thumbs up for never giving up.

Hopkins, mannn, it's long overdue, but here's to many more podiums for you.

So gutted for Nicky
