If you haven't watched any of the Qatar races, do it! They were all great!

However, just a reminder that you might want to use the SPOILER tags to keep people from seeing discussion of results accidentally before they see the race.

Been following Mat Oxley on Twitter, where I found out (if I am correct) that a Wayne Rainey boy is competing in Moto2 and had just podiumed in Argentina. That was my favorite race to watch when I was last @COTA.

Looking forward to the next one!

Sorry my bad. It's a Gardner boy. Got caught showing how much of a fan I really am lol

Anyway, still fun to see...

I saw where NBC sports network is doing a recap show one week later of each circuit this year for the Americas GP races. I will look for next week's show for this Austin TX weekend.

Make sure you use the Spoiler tag on any results. Some people DVR and watch later. I was a at the race today and know the outcome.

Marquez was running away with it again and made a mistake. 75% of the crowd, or more all cheered. It wasn't a cheer to be glad he failed though. In my opinion it was a cheer because a new winner and new manufacturer. Relief almost. I will admit that i was one that cheered too. But still felt sorry for him as he tried to remount.

Oh, and i ran into Kory and Nate (deviantartist) at the race. I'm slightly embarrassed that they both recognized me before I even saw them. Nate was two people behind me in line. And that was before we even got in the gate.

Spoiler Button below...you know you want to press it....

Where I was at, people weren't just cheering when Marquez fell, they were laughing at his attempt to get back in the race. Felt like I was getting crushed by schadenfreude and it made the race a lot less fun to watch for me.

As a Rossi fan, I'd rather have seen him on the podium with Honda still on the track to possibly evidence something in Yamaha's bike that had been improved for COTA.

Plus, I'm bigger Moto2 fan anyway.

Nice to finally meet you, since I've never been able to make one of the photo meet-ups.

Wow, that make me feel better. I was racking my brain trying to remember if we'd met and how could I have forgotten. Now I really impressed you recognized me out of the blue.
