Valentino has secured his 7th Italian GP in Rossi fashion. The champ has definitely returned. Jorge Lorenzo crashed out attempting a pass…or so I hear. I wouldn’t know because here in America; Speed TV thinks MotoGP fans like reading results instead of watching them. Yes, they show the race but it’s at 10PM EST because…well…I have no idea why! they could show it in the morning when it happens but apparently some NASCAR show or Pinks is playing. God forbid we interupt “original” programming for a dang race!
