The full videos of every race and other "Videopass exclusive" stuff is well worth the 95 Euros. Seriously, and I am a cheap bastard.

Anyone care to make a single thread/post that lists all of the places where various races (MotoGP, WSBK, etc) can be viewed? If online, perhaps a deep link, if on broadcast we can chime in with our country/channel?

In lieu of a new thread, simply go to SBK and buy the video pass. Well worth it and as you're a pending SL owner, I think you can afford it I misspoke earlier, it's only 69 Euros.

Not to take away from the brilliance of MM, but the best race of the day was definitely the Motogp3.

The young Aussie Jack Miller road probably the best 2 final laps I have ever seen. He even copped the clip in the back from Vazquez. He could have taken it easy and looked for a podium, but he ignored that and absolutely went for it.

Just watch the last lap

Checked it out, awesome race. Way more exciting than the Motogp race. Now if they could just give them 220 or so hp it would be perfect.

MM reminds me of Rossi when he was his age... he was able to start a race on the brack of the grid and would fight up to first place.

JL and Pedrosa are nowhere near MM.

He would regularly qualify on the 2nd row or worse, get a bad start and come back from double-digit places on the first lap to win by a mile. MM is simply the "Rossi" of today, he's got a clear advantage over the field. If anything, MM doesn't seem to like to do that in races and wants to clear off as soon as possible and build an unassailable gap. If he were a real racing god, he would do the "Rossi" style like today for a few races in a row, just to further demoralize the field.

The only reason Dovi qualified so well was that he used a softer tire that he has available as an option, like the Open machines. The Desmosedici is much faster over one lap, but isn't competitive with Yamaha and Honda over race distance. Dovi said as much in the first race and they didn't expect much changes until later in the season so I don't know why we even waste breath talking about them since nothing is going to change until some major new development arrives.

Again, this is a 2 team race with 3 riders strung out at the top a good way off the clear leader. I have no idea why this is so popular when WSBK is so much more entertaining in racing terms and our bikes are doing much better there this year - and the ones closest to our bikes (FIM STK 1000) are OWNING the class.
lets stop calling mm the new rossi right now. also MM qualifies pretty well. he is the first marquez. his style is unique. he was going to pass rossi anyway but rossi made the mistake cause he knew marquez was coming. period. hes doing well for himself on the yamaha.

interesting you should say JLO doesnt like the bike. in this edition of sport rider they interviewed the head of yamaha racing (forgot name) and he said to make up for lack of straight speed they decreased front end feel. JLO hates that and the tires in and you have jlo problem. now throw in mental .

danny was riding with staples in his arm i think he did pretty well for having staples in his arm.

lastly and i cant believe i am going to say this but its great seeing rossi on the podium w/MM because nobody drums up the crowd like rossi. when he went into first place (rossi) you heard the crowd. MM needs to learn how to do that. he had rossi doing his little dance, then rossi and bautista tried to blind MM with champain training to hurt him so he cant win next race.

Casey stop fishing its damn boring in case you havnt noticed there is a new kid on the block.

MM didnt start on the back he started in pole (again) he was trailing JLO both made a mistake and MM went really wide ended up in 10th. he didnt do it on purpose nor did he joke its part of racing.

Rossi went wide because of MM end of race with 14 laps left

he would have won starting from pit lane.

i am courious to see how Mugello will turn out ...

i mean, yes, MM with reservation on the top of the box, but what will rossi do in front of the home crowd?

also, will ducati pull out an extra strong mapping for the home crowd, setting new speed records and pushing the motivated Dovi?

can't wait to see it!!!
