A cracking race although Cal Crutchlow may have some words with Dani Pedrosa!

A nice gesture by Pedrosa to offer best wishes for Nicky Hayden's recovery. Unfortunately there seems to be no change in his condition yet, but here's hoping he makes a speedy and full one.

Very un-Rossi like. I wonder if he would take 2nd in hindsight.

Indeed. Thoughts with his family and friends.

Will miss you No. 69.

RIP.

Farcical Race robs pole sitter of the win.... Reigning Champion rides like a psychopath..

Miller was robbed, the event was declared a WET race on the grid, then the teams who DIDN'T run slicks broke the rules, along with the organisers and set the start back so they could have their cake and eat it too...

Why have rules? They're not "race guidelines"

Sure, there would have been twenty bikes starting from Pit Lane after the Parade Lap if the rules were properly followed, or the riders could have been forced to follow the rules and pit after the race start, or even just swap tires on the grid.

Marquez SHOULD have started from Pit Lane after stalling his machine on the grid (or AT LEAST started from the rear of the grgid) , and after his ride through penalty he rode in a dangerous manner coming into contact with several riders, causing at least one to crash. Marquez SHOULD have been black flagged and taken out of the race after the Rossi incident. I'd like to see him banned for a race to settle him down....

In the positives, it WAS dramatic and Crutchlow deserved the win. First Brit to lead the premier class since Sheene...

Blimey I thought I'd slipped into a time warp and was watching the old LC 350 Pro Am series, not the Assen Moto GP, banging fairings, elbows and all sorts, the lead changing nearly every turn. That was a good old fashioned race like they should be.

A colleague did the aerobatics over the race. Dutch Rush aka Frank van Houten. Top bloke.
