Rossi's sheer joy is so infectious.  :D :D :D
Watch After the Flag:

I get this via the motogp.com newsletter. You may need to register to see the video but it doesn't cost anything.

Confirmed that Jack will be on a Ducati next year. Should be good.

Obviously not a position that HRC were happy with.
Guess it was an experiment bringing in a rider straight from Moto3.

You are probably right. But then Alex Marquez did no better in his first 2 years in Moto 2 with a 14th and 13th so who knows.

And Rabat came via a very successful 5 years in Moto 2.

His results, bar the GP win have been disappointing but not from lack of trying. Every time he gets aggressive on the bike he either tangles with other riders or crashes. Must be doing his head in. Hope he jells with the new bike and gets some results

Crutchlow aired the HRC factory dirty linen a few weeks back, he stopped himself after stating that all that he and Jack do is spend their free practice times testing new shit that doesn't work so the golden kids at Repsol look good.    I like Crutchlow! ;D

Stunning win by Dovi and Ducati. Incredible race, best of the season so far I think.
