He did well,but unfortunately I think it could be his last. Conditions and circumstances went for him. Hope I,m proved wrong though.  :006:

Well Dave I'm sure the conditions were the same for everyone Lorenzo and Pedrosa just want to race in the dry.
I suspect Lorenzo would never have been champion if every race was wet contrast that to hailwood comeback,  he knew if it rained he could win.

In my defence I also said circumstances as well.  There's reasons why it's only his first win in umpteen years. Roll on more wet races though.  :38: I also think if Lorenzo doesn't sort his head out when it rains he won't be champion again.  :006:

McFee also WON MOTO 3.   :celebrate:

I guess we Brits get more wet-practice.
Did you see McFee's unbelievable recovery in the final lap? He looked like a stunt-rider.

Lorenzo certainly seems to have decided he likes his skin better than a win in dodgy racing conditions.
Fair enough!  I ride like a Granny when it's wet too.

Ted.

didn't Jeremy McWilliams win a race in about 2000? He's British.

In my opinion Crutchlow and Iannone would have much more victories if they rode more competitive bikes. Ducati is almost there.
