We should have a thread just for this.
No posting race results or comments indicating winner, etc. until 24 hours after start.
Ex: Race started live 8a EDT on Sunday. No comments until Monday 8a EDT Monday.

Any other rules or suggestions?

Having said that, WOW! that was a race. What else could you want?
Air this tape delayed on Sunday afternoon and I bet the ratings would soar and new fans would follow.

So Marquez edges Lorenzo because of strength of Honda over Yamaha or Marc was a better/smarter rider on Sunday? Or a little from Column A and a little from Column B?

I think MM93 is a better rider than JoLo99. I have watched MM93 start last in a Moto2 race and win. What does that tell you? The kids is fast, hungry and aggressive. That's what winners are made of. What was up with JoLo's jump start earlier this season? Was he riding in a different race? Don't take me the wrong way. He's a nice guy and all, got the meet him in Indy back in 2010. I think he needs to focus a little harder. MM93 has got them all stirred up. It's kind of funny in a way.

Been following MM for a couple of years now. Great kid. Really glad to see he's stirring things up.
This past weekend's race was a classic.

Another Wow!
Others are trying to dethrone 93. Great last lap.
Nice to see the veteran doctor stay on the podium.

MM93 wins even after Pedro hit him in the rear tire. Could have been ugly for both riders. Can't wait for Indy in August! Anyone here ever been to live MotoGP race? If you haven't you're missing out. This year will be 7th year in a row that I have attended the MotoGP races in Indy. The sites, the sounds, the smell of race gas. Met JoLo99 one year. It's a good time. We normally get the 3 general admission ticket for about $70.00. They have free motorcycle parking on the back stretch of the Indy car track and a free gear check. Lots and lots of venders, bikes, gear, food etc. etc. and girls, girls, girls!!

We camp at the Lake Haven Retreat Campground which is located about 11 miles south of the track. Any Ninja 1000 riders headed this way in August? Jay

I'm going but am very fortunate to get into Parts Unlimited area as my dealer is a very large customer & PU has their own area with small grandstand. They bring riders over for interviews/signings, Pedrosa & Bradl were there last year.

Cool man! If you want my cell number I can PM it to you. Always nice to meet other fellow Ninja 1000 owners. Jay

I've been every year as well. We make a little vacation out of it. We'll be up there this year as well I'm sure. I want to see how much the reconfiguration will change things.

So Marquez is human and not automatically guaranteed a podium finish.
I hope he got whatever the problem was (either him or the bike) out of his system.

So Marquez loses but Honda Repsol still wins. Yamaha has got to be frustrated.

Very exciting race for a while - Marquez and Iannone trading paint! Looked more like NASCAR than MotoGP.

I've never seen this good of racing in many years, from any form of racing genre.
Theses guys are putting on a show for sure.

I second the 24hour spoiler alert

24 hours from EDT/EST live broadcast. I think everyone's onboard.
I guess this means that I better not post what my clairvoyant senses tell me about upcoming races until 24 hours after the race. Bet my post-race pre-race visions are spot on !!

I'll not take that bet. MM destroyed everyone in testing the day after he lost in Brno.
