Honda Moto 3 bike makes official debut at Catalunya press conference. Supermoto racer likes it ( Bigok ) and as a result, draws ire of all road race fans over 25 years old.

Edwards crashed out of FP2 resulting in a broken right collarbone. On his way to hospital for surgery. Bummer...

Bad timing for getting hurt with 6 races in the next 8 weeks (or something close to that).

Ha! Of course he was!  And I'll find a way to prove it...

Hard to joke, though. I'm bummed about the injury to Edwards.

Just you wait and see, if he gets a bad start from pole and tries to make up for it in time for the 1st turn, oh boy give him a wide berth

At least Simoncelli made a clean, decisive pass. Thats good but it cut the drama down by 95%.  Lol

Glad to see Spies turning competitive lap times during the race and on the podium. That slow motion of Stoner was great. Love watching him ride. Still bummed about Edwards getting hurt. Anyone know if that is his t-shirt cannon shoulder?

LOL...Hell super simo is THE ONLY exciting thing that has happened in GP so far this year.....TOTAL snoozfest otherwise.....Yes Stoner is a hoot to watch. He will hand Jorgay his ass this year...Spies....Well he is no alien for sure and today will probably be one of his best performances this year. Expected MUCH more from him on the factory bike. Rossi who??....That Duc is just an anchor......Nice nap though, hope the moto2 is better...

Moto2 was a better race but not super exciting or anything.

Yeah the ducati's are pretty miserable  and it's tough to imagine them improving enough this year to be competitive.  Rossi has publicly remained fairly positive but Hayden has sounded totally dejected and completely frustrated over the last two races.

I fell asleep 3 laps in.  Woke up to see the champagne.  

However, the 125 race was pretty good, with a hella big controversy surrounding the finish.  I thought Zarco pulled an agressive yet legit move, definitely had Terol beaten by taking the inside line into the last corner.  They both ended up riding on the grass right before Zarco crossed the line first, but race direction gave him a 20 second penalty before he'd even gotten to Parc Fermé.  It was complete horseshit, and a direct result of the Simoncelli decision.  They're going to continue to pussify GP racing, and I think it sucks.
