On the one hand, on the other, back to the first.....
Gotta say I really felt for Nicky Hayden as he really didn't deserve that from Pedrosa. Somehow I think the Championship is now a mountain that he can't climb, and with the calibre of the current field I also sense that he may never get that close again.
Honda must also be slightly reeling from the Own Goal they managed to let in there .... and in favour of Rossi and Yamaha !! But what to do ... we the public don't want team orders, prima donnas and stage managed races. Honda must also be wondering about how to handle this moving forward because the irony is that Pedrosa probably is a premier class future world champion and Honda's shining star able to conquer Rossi.
It doesn't make his behaviour right though ..... it was more a massive error of judegement than an innocent mistake.
What happened to Tony Elias .... was he doped or did someone rub chilli round his ringpiece !!! He was on fire and I've never seen him ride like that before. Sort of mixture between Gary McCoy, Rossi and Capirossi all at once.... superb.
And hats off to the fat boy of Moto Gp KRJR . That was also an awesome ride. Cool, Calm and Calculating .... wonder what he could have done if he'd realised there was another lap to go !!!!
We should set up pole ... was that a better race than the 2002 Superbike Showdown between Bayliss and Edwards?
