Congratulations to """spoiler alert """ Moto GP Philip island

VR has won the Australian Moto GP at PI. I was not able to go to the race as I planned as I am on duty with the Army but was able to watch and then have a few beers to celebrate another fine victory. He was humble in victory. Such a great ride and a great race. Great to see Jack Miller win Moto 3 too. Everyone drinking in the officers mess now knows who VR is I can assure you.
Thanks from Carl1199 and leftcoast32

Watched it last night, obviously the front tires were an issue MM going down, great VR ride, fast and staying within the limits.

Poor Cal...


They said Ducati decided to not play around with the setup any more... Seems to almost have worked out... (With the 14.1 btw )

I guess with the Championship in hand the KID is going to win it or bin it at these last races, it was disappointing for me. It's almost like he couldn't see his board and he felt those Yamahas on his tail. But there is no one else I'de rather see win than Vallie, he ran his teammate down, out dueled him and dropped his ass. To win his 250th GP start at his age, against this current competition is nothing short of legendary, whether your a fan or not.

It's almost as if you just said "Beetleguice" 3x in a row. I feel these words are going to summon a special someone who will be compelled to reply with a fiery rebuttal...

Does that special someone start with "M" and end with "ark"?

Marc did slow down when he had the big lead and he thinks that is WHY he crashed. The temp dropped 9 degrees during the race and when Marc backed off his pace he couldn't keep the front tire warm and he lost it.
Thanks from Phl and VAST

That does make sense...and depending on what compound he was using

Yeah, he was using the asymmetric front that almost everyone else who crashed was using. He said the Honda had no choice but to use that tire because it couldn't go full race distance on the soft.
