    The slightly delayed telecast just finished here.

    How fkn elite was that race!
    I almost stopped breathing for those last 2 laps.

    Rossi is brilliant.

    Waiting to hear what Gibbernau says in the post-race about that incident.
    Should be interesting.

    Rossi is such a bitch. That last lap was amazing untill Rossi went into the corner too hot and pushed Sete off the course.
    I'm surprised Rossi got away with that. I would have got in his face if I was Sete. :nono:

    Hayden looked awesome untill he wrecked out. Showed up Collin Edwards for most of the race. :p

    IMHO Rossi made a mistake... Gibernau had him beat and Rossi came up the inside. Rossi had overestimated his braking ability several times before, and he did it again. Rossi put himself in the position where he just couldn't avoid contact. Rossi's fault.

    I agree completely. He came in way too hot. Made contact with Gibernau and forced him off the track. Rossi ran all the way to the egde of the track. Big mistake one Rossi's part. Gibernau should have won. But it was still a great last couple laps.

    'Made contact with Gibernau and forced him off the track.' that is bs.

    Gibbernau banked in harder when he saw Rossi coming and ran into him. As a result, they both went wider than they would otherwise.

    We watched that race 3 times today, and htat pass about 50 times.

    My opinion...
    - Sete should know better than to leave the inside that open.....
    - the "pass" itself was too aggressive.....but "it's racing" as Rossi put it
    - to me it looks like Rossi would have gone obscenely wide if he didn't hit Sete, in
    the car world, where you can use your mirrors I think Sete would have seen him
    blasting down the inside, braked harder and watched Rossi go flying by and off line

    Hell of a race....next weekend is gonna be good :)

    Quit your bitching, Rossi always comes from inside. Like richk said should have never left the inside open

    the final pass was pretty crappy. if u seen the Rossi's others passes before, most were really clean but i guess Rossi was just scrambling at the end seeing how he almost losted it during the final lap.

    Unbelievable race - the pass was a bit dirty, but Gibernau should expect nothing less in such a situation. Looking forward to seeing Gibernau return the favor this weekend hopefully. Is there a torrent for Jerez anywhere??

    Rossi got lucky that Sete wrecked out. :p

    The 250 race was amazing though. That last lap was intense.
