Once again there was proof this AM that MotoGP is some of the best racing anywhere. Great to see Valentino Rossi still has the fire in his belly and can get it done while always appearing to enjoy himself immensely. This is truly a case of a man doing what he was born to do.

On the edge of my seat from beginning to end.

Marquez thought he should have been given the victory because Rossi cut the final corner. But he really had no choice after the collision, and nobody would willingly go through a gravel trap on a bike with smooth tires at race speed.

It's understandable that Marquez's emotions would be high after that race long effort.

Rossi proves that life isn't over at age 36.

Yeah, I thought the stewards were correct in letting the finish stand. Two world champions at their best and neither one was going to give ground, at most a racing incident.

I'm glad to see the season hasn't been the cakewalk for Marquez that many predicted, some good battles going on, probably gonna be close all season.
