    Are you talking about when the bike was on its nose and sideways at the top of the Corkscrew? Crazy save.

    Well, another one in the record books for Rae...Unless something takes a turn for the worse, I'm thinking 4 World Titles in row this year.

    The crash with Razgatlioglu at the Corkscrew was crazy. His bike was thrashed after that one! They said he fracture a toe or two in his left foot so had to sit out for today's race.

    On another note, when did Laguna Seca become 'Weathertech Raceway' vice 'Mazda Raceway'?

    That and another at the bottom of Raineys plus several other big twitches from the back wheel

    A good ride by Rea, Mr Consistent putting those lap times in like they were already printed

    Lowes and MVDM are making those Yamahas fly, great racing by them both, shame about Camier, that Honda hasn't brought him much luck

    Toprac was lucky to only get a broken toe, as OOTV says his bike just disintegrated, one of those wrecks where you take the spark plugs out and walk away from the rest

    Hats off to the top 8 riders for putting on a great show and an awesome race! Looked like a Moto3 race there for a while.

    Yes it was a very entertaining race - Marquez definitely earned his paycheck today. I still can't believe Rossi didn't crash at the 3:40 mark in the vid when he rear ended Lorenzo! :D

    Oh yeah, of course MM had another save that defied gravity! I think the JL/VR hit amazed everyone just as much though.

    The Dovi/Rossi brake duel cost both of them a podium.
    Best race I've seen in a long time.

    Almost cost MM and MV too. Marc said it best, (paraphrasing) “...It was a difficult race, as you had to be attacking and defending at the same time.” I originally thought he made the wrong tire choice but seeing the number of place swaps, his explanation seems spot on now. I thought the Philip Island race a couple years ago was brilliant but this one tops it!

    What an incredible race, now that’s entertainment.
    Definitely not going to erase this one.

    There’s already a thread for this batch of rumors from over a month ago (which you participated in and even mocked), so why bother reposting them in a racing thread?
