    WTF!!!! Americans entertaining the world on that one. Colin had balls the size of Texas during that last lap. Congrats to Nicky and Kawi making the podium.

    If Colin's balls were big then Hayden's were bigger.
    Crazy crazy stuff that last lap.

    The last one standing was the winner...
    It dont think Hayden was ever going to make that last turn. Colin took his bait though and got caught out on the grass.

    That was one hell of a race. Like I've said before, Hayden has really come of age.
    It may just be his year !

    Actually here is a quote from Nicky after the race:
    "At the end of the race I felt really good and really strong. Going into the last chicane he was going in so deep so I used a move I used on Hopkins earlier in the race. Honestly it wasn't going to work and I caught neutral, but he ran off the track too."

    And Colin:
    "What can I say? Obviously I'm really disappointed because I know I should have won that race. The bike felt great from the start and I was really enjoying riding it out there. I knew my pace in practice would be hard for the other guys to cope with and that's how it proved to be. I got the start I wanted and just kept my head down, doing those times. When Nicky came up inside me two laps from the end he left the pass pretty late and there was nowhere for me to turn the bike into. I had to go straight and luckily it was at a point of the track where I could run back on again. I was determined not to lose hold of him and just gave it everything to give myself a chance on the last lap. I got past him and then tried to keep a really defensive line out of the final corner - I had no idea Nicky had run onto the gravel otherwise I wouldn't have needed to do it. Unfortunately I ran it a bit too tight onto the grass and the rear just spun up as I opened the throttle and it threw me off. I'm gutted but fair play to Nicky, it was a great race."

    Yep, that one is staying on my DVR for a while....

    When NH passed CE I was standing up in my living room hands raised!! Then CE passed him back after running off track, I said HOLY SHIT, Colin has the taste for blood, but too too hot into the corner and NH takes it! WOO HOO!

    Good Luck next time CE, NH is my favorite, but CE is my second favorite.

    That's what I'm thinking...

    CE and NH are going to THROW DOWN at Laguna Seca... even if everyone else is healthy it's hard for me to believe it's not going to be the Colin and Nicky show like last year.

    That one is going to be damn exciting.

    I know where did Colin find that extra speed to come back after going off track the first time?

    I bet Nicky was surprised to see that.

    Laguna is going to be one heck of a rematch too. Can't wait...

    I think that again the Americans will still have an advantage on home soil. Wish I was going !

    Edwards should have one.

    He just had a mental lapse or just tried to push the machine to far into the last turn.

    Congrats to the Kentucky Kid!
