    Default 2010 Motogp: Round 2 Jerez *Spoilers*

    Ok, for the first time I watched moto2 and I have to say these 4 strokes are delivering! 20 something bikes within a second in qualifying is incredible and these blokes are riding the wheels off of them it was amazing. The 19 year old Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa, has himself a new fan . 1 win, 1 pole, 2nd this race. I hope he keeps his form up. Japan needs a rider in motogp.

    motogp was ok...bit dull in the middle but closing laps were good. Lorenzo stole the show, and that victory celebration was super! Shows what adrenalin can make you do haha, im pretty sure he was drowning in his leathers LOL.

    Pedrosa rode his heart out. I dont think I've seen him defend so aggressively! Rossi solid with injury. Stoner fans must be a little concerned, Hayden comfortably ahead of Stoner the whole race, and matched his qualifying pace too. Ducatis off the pace though.

    I had Spies in my top 5, had a great start but he soon retired. DOH. Simoncelli is gonna get better and better too.
    Big fan of his!

    All in all, enjoyable!

    Totally agree mate, I reckon that Lorenzo was the show, since he passed to 4th place then was non stop, and when he took on Pedroza even better. I reckon that will be a very exciting season.! cheers

    Yeah the Moto2 was a bloody excellent race I am certainly a fan, especially Kenny noyes he did bloody well considering! but im with you wilfumi Shoya Tomizawa is the man to watch I think

    MotoGP was a bit boring, Was glad to see Lorenzo win, Still would have been good to see Pedrosa win too. Dunno what was up with stoner, both the ducatis seemed to be lacking the pace?? They are either flying and losing the front end, or sticking to the track 20 seconds back haha

    And how about that crash at the start of the Moto2 Race :O Lucky there wasnt any serious injuries

    How crap is the channel ten commentary team though? Moto2 was awesome and it kept you on the edge of your seat, but I think towards the end MotoGp did too but the difference was the BBC commentators in Moto2 class made it way more exciting, channel ten had long pauses and didn't pick at all Lorenzo's run to the top! I think they're hopeless, anyone agree?

    that was scary, Elias was hit pretty hard along with the few others, and as he tries to run away he trips over himself lol poor guy. He won though so he must be feeling alright now haha.

    I know in open wheeler car racing, if you get hit by a spining tyre/wheel, your chances of survival are pretty slim (many track marshals lose their life from flying wheels) so it was scary seeing them get hit by the rear tyre from the bikes sliding in...lucky no one hurt

    Daryl Beattie is Monotonous in tone, but at least being an ex-racer he has some interesting views and no BS talk. Greg Rust is Monotonous in everything. Mr Repeat. But Im just glad its on TV at all, So cant complain too much. Now we need WSBK, with proper coverage.

    i recon it was pretty good racing,dunno about casey though,neither ducati`s were super fast but i recon stoner was just a little gun shy & his plan was to just finish & get some points,of course i picked him to win & about the only two guys i didnt pick for something were the two spaniards!!!!...........why is it that riders seem to find that bit extra at their home gp?.......were they not trying as hard for the other races?

    Yeah its a funny situation, but seems to happen with all sports, I notice it lots in the rugby league here, maybe they are just more familiar with their home track/crowd?? Dunno beats me lol

    They probably did all their junior racing etc there its like their backyard probably like every 2 weeks they race on it and knows the ins and outs of the circuits...and there is always 'home ground advantage', take a few more risks. I think there are 4 Spanish rounds so get ready lol. a few Italian rounds too if I'm not wrong...
