    Myself and 2 buddies rode our bikes from Edmonton to Monterrey last year to watch the race. I'll be watching on Sunday. Go Rossi!

    Its good to see Kenny Roberts MotoGP team running so strong this year. (Wish Red Bull would sponsor them and make them a big time contender) I know not that long ago he said he would never lease again but I like this new strategy of the satellite teams making their own chassis and running OEM engines.

    Nicky wins it. KRJR ran well. Too bad about Colin Edwards.

    On another note, I can't believe more people don't watch MotoGP. The racing is so much better than most forms of motorsports. Actual passing!

    I like watching moto racing every now and then, I don't even ride a motorcycle... There are elements of cycling that come from motorcycles as well as some of the suspension technology so it's interesting from a gear standpoint. Countersteering is one facet of motorcycle racing that is used in cycling...
