Makes me think that Rossi would be winning the championship this season if it wasn't for his bike blowing up.
Possibly, but if the standings were closer, I don't think MM would be as aggressive. I think he'd ride more reserved and go for the points

How does that make sense?

Riding more reserved to keep it on 2 wheels? Sure.

Riding more reserved to take the wins? Wat?

Moto 3 was crazy!! lol Poor riders.


VERY happy for Dovi and Rossi. Dovi deserved that win. Too bad Rossi's tire had issue, but either way, Dovi rode great.


So happy Rossi wrapped up 2nd in points too.

Was it his tire? My DVR cut off right after the finish. During the race it seemed more the brakes fading. A few zoomed in corners his lever was all the way down. Running the steel rotors without the cooling vents like Dovi was...

He stated in the post race interview that he had trouble with the front tire and had a couple of serious moments and had to slow down. The shots they were showing of his brake lever did not look as severe as some stated. He uses all four fingers and was covering it up but I really don't think that was the issue.
