2007 Motegi MotoGP Race Day

Today was a rainy miserable day for the race. While the rain did stop about a 1/2 hour before the race, the track was wet and the damage was done. Our favorite riders starting together on the front row were only able to generate 1 top ten finish with Hayden getting 9th. Pedrosa crashed out right in front of us with a nasty highside and Rossi had issues with the tires on his 2nd bike forcing him from first place to 13th. Tony Elias did manage to put one Honda on the podium with a 3rd so all was not lost. Caparossi took 1st and Depuniet was 2nd, sure glad LCR Honda signed RDP for next year, Ive always said he was going to be a great one ;). With 2 races remaining the championship is over with Australian Casey Stoner winning the 2007 championship. Even with the crappy weather the Japanese fans turned out in droves and it was a pretty lively crowd cheering on several Japanese riders put on as wild card riders. We do hope the weather is a little nicer to us next year.
