With that incredible battle on the last few laps from Lorenzo and Marquez, there's no doubt that Jorge is tiring of the youngblood showing him up every race. And Dani Pedrosa can't be all that excited about fending him off for most of the race just to be passed. As we would expect, Vale charged for his home circuit, but couldn't break into the top three... Is The Doctor's time in the limelight really over? Will Cal get a podium or two before the season is over? Bradl also seems to be giving it his all, giving Cal and the Doctor quite a bit of trouble in the last few rounds. How will this Spanish race shake out? Come on down and join us to find out!

In Silverstone, Jorge Lorenzo proved that Marc Marquez isn't untouchable with an incredible fight for first during the last couple laps. Is taking Marc down a couple rungs what the rest of the pack needs to catch him, or is Lorenzo just pushing that much harder? Pedrosa is certainly not letting either one of them out of his sights, especially with Rossi and Crutchlow breathing down his neck. With 6 races left, there's still going to be an incredible fight for the top three, but let's not forget that the fight for first will be exciting until the very end.
Join us on Tuesday the 17th at 6:00pm to find out who will win this round!

"It was the craziest thing I've ever experienced on two wheels."
With Arun's background in motorcycle racing, not to mention actually owning the roadgoing version of Ducati's MotoGP bike, the Desmosedici RR, when he says something like that, he means it.
The opportunity to take a lap around Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Randy Mamola came when Scott Link from Alpinestars called and extended an invitation for Arun to have the MotoX2 experience during this year's MotoGP weekend. Other than being instantly elated and scared shitless, there was nothing to say other than a resounding "YES!" And with that, the deal was done.
Randy Mamola, an ex-500cc MotoGP rider, has become more well known in the recent past for his two-up thrill rides at MotoGP races. If you've ever been to one, you've surely noticed the beautiful, angry noise of a Ducati four-cylinder engine come screaming towards you with two people seated on it, right? That's Randy. He's scared the crap out of everyone from supermodels to Formula 1 drivers on the two-seater Desmosedici and it's pretty apparent that he likes what he does. It becomes crystal clear that he's not going to go easy on you as soon as he twists the throttle for the first time.
Bear with the video, it starts blurry, but gets clear! Worth the watch.
"When you're there, you're in utter disbelief to be on the MotoGP grid, head-to-toe in race gear. You're surrounded by MotoGP teams, about to get on a MotoGP bike with Randy Mamola! Who would have thought, as a race fan, that all those things would come together?" - Arun
Even on Arun's return to the shop the following week, he still couldn't explain the experience without shaking his head and saying, "It's just... It's..." with a grin on his face.
As Randy explained in the pre-ride meeting, "I'm not crazy or anything like that, but I will be going into turn one... Fast. I want you to experience what it's like." Most mortal humans wouldn't flinch at that, you have to realize that this is a seasoned veteran of riding incredibly fast, purpose-built racebiikes. His definition of "fast" is probably quite a bit different from ours.
"Randy said it was going to seem like we were going into turn one way hotter than we should. We WERE going way hotter, but he had it."
Getting anywhere near an actual MotoGP bike, not to mention being able to stand around the paddocks while the top tier of motorcycle racers prepare to ride is an absolute honor. Arun and MotoCorsa would like to thank Alpinestars and Ducati that this program even exists.. And a huge thanks for thinking of us.
Let's not mince words here, Marc Marquez is proving to be an unstoppable force. Natural talent? Beginner's luck? A deal with the devil? Who knows, but he's leading the championship and shows no sign of slowing down. Can any of the seasoned riders stop him? Will Pedrosa or Lorenzo make a move and prove that experience trumps brash, youthful riding? Will Cal make a comeback from his crash at Brno? Will Bradl or Bautista step up their game enough to get to the frontrunners?
Well, we can only speculate, but we know it'll be a good race. Silverstone is one of the fastest, so it'll be exciting!
