Anyone else watching Shanghai?! (Spoiler)

I've been watching this race, while on here on the forum.. and this has been a sweet race! It was a damn shame to see Rossi call it quits so close to the end, but mechanical failures plagued him from being able to finish.... Also, Pedrossa set a new record at Shanghai with 2:00 flat!

3 laps left... looks like Pedrossa is going to finish in first, with hayden right behind him....

Good races going on in 4th & 5th position too!!

I love this stuff!

Even if hayden didnt take the Win its nice to see him add to the lead for the title....

Who else Remembers Twisty saying Hayden sucks and will never win? I think his choice of Edwards went to hell with how easy Nicky caught him and passed him


Go #69!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, good race, too bad we were 1 pre-teen-midget-with-caterpillars-on-his-forehead away from having an All American podium with Hayden, Edwards, Hopkins.

A decent example... 26 is looking where he wants to go... but 69 and 15 are target fixating on 26...

Sounds like I missed a good race. I'm in Taiwan on business, had to fly on Sunday, so missed the whole thing, and only partially saw a 10 second soundless newsclip.

Forgive my parochialism, how did Casey and Chris go??

I'm a fan of Edwards, and it's great to see Nicky Hayden leading the championship, but then again it's great to see anyone different leading the championship!

Go The Yanks!!
P.S. In a previous post I mentioned the video "Faster". Anyone seen it. They do a great story on Hopkins!

Disregard my last post. Saw the whole race on replay in a helicopter hanger in Taipei, complete with chinese commentary (slightly less annoying than Keith Hewen and Julian Ryder)!
