      Race cancelled because of the the new paving not allowing drainage. Does Great Britain have unions?
      Something witty will be in this exact spot soon.

      What a ****show. The track being basically completely level does not help. The new asphalt does not allow a single drop to be absorbed and since the ground is flat, the water just sits there.

      Not the blacktop workers. I guess it was really pooling in one area and that was that. Insane because I was at Indianapolis when the hurricane came through and they damn near ran that whole race. Drove home to no power for a week. Went from camping in the Snake Pit to camping in my home.

      For serious though, where will he end up? I hope this doesn't derail his career. Way too much talent.

      I wish I had an insider w/ our MotoGP team, but those of us that talk about such things here are thinking he'll end up @ LCR Honda after Crutchlow retires from the factory team next year.

      Thought this bump would be about Marc breaking his arm in last week's race, and looking to try to race again this weekend

      This abbreviated season is insanity. Happy to see Fabio bag his first win.

      He's on a roll. Happy to see Rossi on the podium again.

      Also, ecstatic that these are now airing on NBC, thank god.

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      Old dog still got hella tricks..... Rossi could teach a master class on late braking. Great to watch. The high DNF count was very strange.
