MotoGP China (Spoiler)

Well, I thought the race was a bit dull out the front, but well done to the Repsol boys. The real racing was back in the pack for fifth to tenth. Good to see Tamada back with some form. Poor day out for Ducati.

Looks like it will be Rossi's hardest year yet, whilst I want Loris to win, it would be a pretty amazing comeback if Rossi can turn it around especially with so many guys being able to take points off him, hard for him to catch up on a dodgy bike.

Should keep Rossi in Moto GP I reckon - his ego won't allow him to leave on a downer - he can use the excuse of the new 800s to race next year too.

Didn't Rossi take a few side swipes at Gibbernau for looking very obviously at his tyres during the race to excuse poor results?

Yeah, I believe he did. But without defending Rossi so much, it is a bit different when a chunk of rubber flies off your front tyre, destroying your front mudguard in the process, compared to tyres simply going off resulting in poor performance.

The tyre breaking up was unfortunate, Rossi has (to date) always been lucky.

Now we will see what he is made of, people fought with him yesteday showing no respect, something that in previous years he has not really had to put up with.

What a great year it is becoming

Yep, gotta agree - should be a great rest of year. Rossi is at his very best when he feels challenged. Superb season already, and lots of races in quick succession now

Excellent to see such an open season so far with rookies doing well and old hands aswell. Shame Loris isn't continually up there but thats the Bridgestone gamble really.

Will be good to see Rossi going well again. He has had some crap qualifying recently and has done good catch up work getting back near the front.

Should be a good fight this year!
