    Did anyone watch MotoGP this weekend?

    I recorded the 250cc and the Championship Class but haven't watched the 250cc yet.

    For those who DID NOT WATCH BUT PLAN TO WATCH A RECORDING, DO NOT READ FURTHER (spoilers).

    I absolutely could not believe that Rossi wrecked on the FIRST TURN and then wasn't able to come back by more than one place. :eek:wned: When he wrecked, he stood there pissed off and it didn't look like he was even considering picking the bike up and getting back out there until a couple corner workers ran out. Most of the races I've seen, when a wreck is that mild, the rider is doing everything he can to get back out there quickly.

    It looks like Ducati has a chance at a good season, better than last season at least. It will be interesting to see how well Capirossi continues to do in other races.

    I really doubt that Pedrossa will do as well in the next race as Jerez is kind of a home field for him and I'm betting he's spent more practice time on this track than any of the others. Of course, with his 2 years of experience in 250cc MotoGP, he at least knows each of the tracks he'll be on.

    So far, I'm rooting for Hayden as an American rider on a Honda but this is the first year I'm following MotoGP so I may end up picking a different rider as my favorite. I won't, however, be jumping on the Rossi bandwagon.
