WSB/GP/AMA - Caution - Spoiler!!!
undefinedOkay I admit I am a bit of a Honda homer but did you see Chris Vermulen in race #2? To go from an out of contention 5th place in race 1 to a seesaw battle for 1st in race 2, wow!! That last lap was unbelievable!!! I was standing in front of the tv screeming "Go Chris!!" Toseland kicked ass in the first race and came oh so close in race #2. Chili and Haga also put on brilliant performances. This has to be the best racing on tv!
Watched the GP race earlier and it looked a lot like the offerings from F1 these days, i.e. just another routine win for you know who. Missed the beginning. Where were Biaggi and Hayden?
My hero, Miguel just couldn't pull the trigger today in AMA.
Don't know about you but this stuff can get my heart pounding better than any hockey/football/baseball game.
agreed !!! the WSb race was sick !@! when that RR went across the curbing for the pass i bet his eyes were closed and his ass clenched
but i cant agree with ya on the GP race though ,even though rossi walked away ,he doesnt really do that of lately with the yami plus always entertaining .
Anyone else notice in the coverage of AMA superbike they actually showed more of the guys in the back than usual .They are typically stuck on the 2 guys upfront but this time they actually went further into the pack for something else to watch .
Best part is how JOsh on the ZX10R is getting closer and closer .I'd give mladin the meatball flag for thowing up the huge dust clouds at everybody.lol
You are right they did show more of the pack and some of the action away from the leaders. There is some good stuff happening back there that we don't often get to see. Good on the producers for showing some of the pack action.

Hey, Mladin will win any way he can. Doing the James Bond thing and throwing up the smoke screen is just one item in his bag of tricks. There were a couple of times he was right on the edge of loosing it all at that little chicane. Slicks don't do well on the grass. I have to admit the guy is talented.
