    Anybody watch the Dutch GP from Assen? 100 on track passes!!! I watched it twice, it was that exciting. Formula 1 could be this way with some rule changes

    The notable thing was that Marqez won by 2 seconds but all the reat of the 15 points scorers were within 16 seconds of him. Just imagine that in a non-oval car race.

    Last weekend was the German MotoGP at the Sachsenring. Another entertaining weekend with overtaking and fighting for places was the order of the day.

    For those interested in UK riders I would point to John McPhee in Moto 3. On Sunday he was in third place after a hard fought fight which saw him almost getting the second step on the podium. He rides a KTM bike for whom it was a good day: Bradley Smith finished in 10th position in the major race, KTM's highest position so far.

    Marquez is the class of the field but I wonder if all these crashes he has will catch up to him at some point? I love seeing Rossi on the podium and hope Yamaha can come up with something so he can be on the top step

    I was listening to commentary on Marquez, and they were saying that he seems to pick a slow, innocous corner in practice and then hit it faster and faster until he falls off/has to save it with his knee and elbow, and then he knows exactly where the grip limit is for the rest of the weekend, given that tracks tend to have fairly uniform tarmac these days.

    I also read in MCN a few years ago that he does a shittonne of yoga, which might help to explain his astounding lack of major injuries so far...
