    Dun-dun-DUUURRRRRNNNN!

    Smiley Marc missed the podium, there goes the perfect score.

    All hail the mighty Dani, savior of results and pundits!

    Was a flawless ride by Dani, Iannone and Dovi had a great battle. Smith and Redding continue to improve, looking forward to Silverstone.

    Sort of glad to see MM's streak end, in a way, as much as a new record would have been pretty cool. Brno always makes for an interesting race, it seems!

    Same! Most of all, looking forward to seeing Colin Edwards make his last UK GP appearance. Just gotta pray for the weather now...

    Guess who pressured Marc Marquez into crashing...


    The 2015 championship is calling.

    Better than Silverstone, but also liking the look of the circuit of Wales.

    Sauce?

    Didn't Silverstone sign a ten year contract or something similar, they like tying events down at that track.

    Thanks Wiby, missed that.

    Dorna seem to be on a mission to sabotage themselves at the minute.

    Its been a while since the last post and their have been some really great races, the championship being won in Japan but the finish in Philip Island was crazy but Smith got third.

    After falling off in Philip Island and then twice in Sepang, Pedrosa has lost out on second place in the championship. Rossi and Lorenzo have both improved alot over the last few races, their have been some brillaint battles.

    Final race in Valenciana next weekend, proably be another MM win but hopefully a good finish to the season.

    Can't wait for the last race :)

    Vale has had a couple of cracking races, so great to see him enjoying himself. Even Cal has had a good few races (even if he didn't finish the best one), but in his own words, he simply likes those tracks anyway. Happy for Bradders but 2015 surely has to be his last year.

    2015 is going to be immense!

    Mere hours after winning the title Guinters annonced that he is joining PATA Honda next year. Hope the Aprillia bosses are outraged about now

    Was a great set of races last night, Was a bit gutted for Sykes, Can imagine he wont be happy, with 2 3rd places, I wonder how happy he was with baz after baz was told to yield 2nd place in race 1

    Wasn't the move to PATA a possibility before the race anyway or was that someone else?

    Correct. He was already rumored to be going to Honda before the race but could not disclose until after. That fireblade is an old bird now and could seriously do with some development.

    Sykes was gutted, and his outburts on twitter havnt really helped the situation. lm lucky enough to have met Tom and he comes across as a really cool down to earth bloke, but i think its fair to say his dissapointment probably got the better of him! (Who can blame him i suppose)

    Baz...well, on one hand i can see why he did what he did. He let Sykes past at his home race of Magny Cour and probably felt that if he wasn't fast enuff to catch sylvan then tough! But overall, I think he should have followed the team order from a professional standpoint.

    Well Valcencia was a good end of season race, MM with 13 wins for the season, Dani got third and with Lorenzo gamble paying off, Rossi fell behind at the end.

    Crutchlow and Dovi had a great battle from the start to the end, Rabat at the end in moto 2.
