    Strictly regarding the action on track, I too was feeling some deja vu this weekend. Watching Rea, Razgatlioglu & Redding in close formation I felt at times like I was watching Corser, Haga & Bayliss.

    Us layperson haters were right this time. Unfortunate but not surprising. 

    I agree that this is a big failure in their so called system. Hindsight is 20-20 but you need to implement changes with the benefit that clear hindsight gives you. I guess push ups are not the same as riding a MotoGP bike? Who knew. Rins and Crutchlow probably shouldn't have raced either but what do I know.

    Thank you JNH for writing pretty much word-for-word the (funnies!) comment I was about to write last week (my rule, often but unfortunately not alway obeyed, is to wait until the next day, with no ipa in my system).

    I am also one of the millions of idiots who, despite a complete absence of formal medical training, thought that it might not have been the smartest decision to ride.

    I think riders in MotoGP show their dedication to their sport every time they get onto the bike with an injury. It would be best for them to take some time off and mend up fully. But, these men are obsessed with racing and it's their competitive drive that makes them so much fun to watch. In this current era, Marc is the definition of that obsession. A rider not obsessed and possessed with the desire to crush his opponents wouldn't have been able to have a comeback as Marc did at the first race. In the eyes of normal folks, he's a fool. Risking his body for imaginary points. But to him, this is everything. If he could distract himself with sailing or learning to fly I can't imagine he would be half as good a rider as he actually is.
