Moto GP - Le Mans (Spoiler)

Just got done watching it (TiVo'd)

Holy Schnikies....Valentino Rossi's yammie crapped out on him, he as a DNF. He had an almost 4 second lead over Pedrosa, then with a few laps left...WHAMO, engine no workie. Anyone hear what happened?

Rossi is having a not so good year. Happy to see Nicky on top of the standings. Interesting how the field plays out when Rossi's not a threat.

Now on to the AMA races....

The did a replay of Rossi's bike a few laps after it happened. It just revved down and that was it. Almost the effect of hittin your kill. I didn't hear any loose shit rattling around it just died. Such a pisser too he has had such bad luck this year and he was running good. If he would have finished he could have easily had a 6 second gap.


Enjoy the ama race. Not really much to see lol. Im sure you know which two bike were out front by a huge margin. These guys are starting to make watching the AMA races boring

True, but its cool that Mladin is getting some competition this year. Ben has won 6 in a row, only been done two other times in history. One more and the kid is in a league of his own.

Rossi has got the raw deal this year. Taken out, tire problems, then motor quitty. Really sucks.
