I agree, great news.
But I fear his learning curve has probably fallen behind the rest of the field, so I expect he has a tough time ahead. Not to mention riding fitness and strength...

Yeah.  Unfortunately you are correct.  Don't you just hate reality!?   :patch:

I think, he could aim for points and with a bit of luck, achieve that.

Damn! THAT was a tight Moto3 race, Daryn rode pretty flawlessly and should have got on the podium today, but a solid 4th considering how close they all were..  :thumleft:

Looks to me those two Yamhas had somethin glogging up their airboxes, damn those Ducatis are fast in a straight line.(349 km/h)
Yamaha must do something about it. :deal:

And how was Dovi's wobble over that crest on the straight, can you imagine if he lost it at that speed!

IF he had underpants on there would be a big hole in it, or for them that might be just another day at the office. ;)

What was Jorge's problem? from leading the race to dropping like a stone?

He also had a major wobble at the end of that main straight while going for Rossi. I think it scared the crap out of him because he faded away that same lap.

Agreed, but in this race, final positions was up to the gods of the slipstream.

What an incredible race.  Just to get some idea, time difference between P1 and P20:

MotoGP:  51 seconds
Moto 2:  25 seconds
Moto 3:  2,3 seconds!

Was awesome, those Ducatis coming in to their own now.

I couldnt believe the massive speed difference when he first shot past the Yamahas on the main straight.

Like they were looking for parking!!!
