MotoGP Japan

Just a heads up to anyone who hasn't seen the race... MotoGP racing at its best. Well worth watching, right to the end.

Rain is the Great Equalizer. It negates horsepower, traction and sometimes judgement as well as desire. The coupla' times I got in a Cycle News club race results article it was a rain race.
This was one for the ages; desmodovi, that was one spectacular move.....

All of those guys are Gods . they say the rain tyres give you grip as if it was dry .... but you have to have big ones to brake from 190 - 75 as hard as those guys do on a wet surface , while the giys around you are trying to outbrake you and get between you and the apex .... Supermen all of them .

...so good to see Dovi outsmart the Spanish Fly on the last turn, predictable what you'll do now Marky Marq. Really great racing on both accounts.

That was incredible. When I saw it live and saw his knee puck spin I thought he broke his leg!
