Arrow MotoGp Round 1 Results

It was a great race, it's just too bad they had to run in the wet conditions.

Did anybody expect the Suzuki four-strokes to come out flying like they did? It looks like perhaps Kenny Jr. is gonna have to find something, or someone, else to blame for any misfortunes this year, other than blaming the bike like he has in the past.

1. Valentino Rossi (Hon); 2. Akira Ryo (Suz); 3. Carlos Checa (Yam); 4. Shinichi Itoh (Hon); 5. Norick Abe (Yam); 6. Alex Barros (Hon); 7. Nobuatsu Aoki (Pro); 8. Regis Laconi (Apr); 9. Loris Capirossi (Hon); 10. Daijiro Katoh (Hon); 11. Tetsuya Harada (Hon); 12. John Hopkins (Yam).

Time: 49 mins., 32.766 sec.

Distance: 21 laps, 75.96 miles.

Average speed: 91.987 mph.

Margin of victory: 1.550 sec.

I enjoyed the race
It seems that Biaggi and Roberts will have to admit defeat and find better excuses this time
Ryo was just great, as was Gibernau until he fell...
Do you remember Ryo as a wild card winning in the WSB? He knows Suzuka like his pocket!

Japan WSB

Ryo should be racing at the next WSB Sugo round too me thinks? If I am not mistaken, he won there before.

Yes overall, it was a great race. I couldn't help but squashing my beer cans from all the tension. Rain tires or not, it had to been very slick!

Rossi might have an ego, but good lord what a stud. That race was AWESOME. Loved every second of it.

Although it wasn't the bike's fault he crashed, Biaggi still claims to be at a disadvantage on the Yamaha. It's funny since Carlos Checa claims to love the M1, and says it's a great bike.

I agree, Ryo, and Gibernau (until he fell) had great races, and made for some excitment at the front.
