Big surprise is Jorge Lorenzo (factory Ducati) won the race!  Marquez(factory Honda) crashed out and rejoined the race to finish just out of the points.(16th)

It seems that Jorge has found the way to ride the Ducati, and now he may actually begin winning again.  He needs to show he can be a winner if he wants a ride next season.  Of course, several other riders need to do that too.
Retired, on the downhill slide. . . . . . . . still feels like going uphill!

Good to see Jorge win but he is finished on factory Ducati. Marquez crash was only a minor inconvenience. He has scored zero points in two of the six rounds this year and is still leading by 23 with 13 races to go. Yamaha is still trying to get things figured out. Rossi's talent and experience put him on the podium,  only luck would get him a win.

Rumors and some verification: Well, for next season Pedrosa out at Honda (official announcement) and Lorenzo in(still needs confirmation) .  Well, let's see if he can wield the Honda as a tool or a weapon.  From what I hear it is a rather physically demanding bike to ride.  The Ducati is easier to ride and still the riders complain it too is a physically demanding bike to ride.  It makes ya wonder some. ;)

Finally, an exciting race. Lots of passing. Looked a little like Moto3 there for a while.
