Managed to get a guided paddock tour with Randy Mamola. Full access to the garage and private access to the service roads outside the fences. Was literally 3' from the track with the gp guys riding.

@Elijah I hope that was you saluting Marquez there.😂

I can barely stand watching MM93 on the last lap. Always anticipating a crash.

That was a good race. Lots of battles. Super jealous of my buddy who is stationed in TX and got to go this year. Next year I'm going for sure.

@jd41 ...wish you would've taken my bet

Good race though. Would've been interesting to see how Vinales would've done had he stayed on the bike. Marquez is definitely asserting his dominance at COTA. Pretty much like Stoner and Phillip Island.

Moto 2 might not be as exciting this year in terms of the championship. Looks like Morbidelli is going to run away with it.

Moto2 may be a one man race, but Moto 3 had a lot of action!

Anyone catch Arron canets highside?

Yeah that was a nasty high-side. The whole time I just had a bad feeling about him. His pace was incredible the whole weekend. Nobody at that level qualifies a second faster than the guy in 2nd in dry conditions! But knowing that he's got such great pace meant he was REALLY pushing it, and I just had a feeling he was pushing his luck a bit too much. Red flag probably didn't help though either since he got out of rhythm and had to do the work all over again. I was pretty impressed with Fenati though. He stuck with Canet, didn't crash and once he was on his own at the front continued to extend his lead.

Fenati was the one who pressures canet in the restart right? I couldn't remember his name but man he really put the heat on!

I personally believe Arron was just that awesome, but that he folded only because of all the pressure he was getting from fenati!

Super smart way to stop the slaughter that was canet, and was rewarded with first place And a massive lead. Very impressed with that show

Bummed that vinales binned it (right where I was). I was counting on him pressuring MM into another crash. Super excited for Pedrosa. That little bugger deserved a podium

Come out next year and work a corner with me. Next year I'm going for T13 or T14, action packed corners because they're so difficult. Trust me on this, this is my home track and I know how difficult they are. 1A, 6A, 11A, 13, 14, 15A are also going to be action packed.

I did salute MM93, but I was really stoked for Pedrosa. Pedrosa is my MotoGP favorite for maybe strange reasons. He went to a Monster Energy Supercross Race in Houston and did an interview and I was like,"What this MotoGP thing?" I instantly became a fan and Dani Pedrosa was the only rider I "knew". When I saw Dani in first today I was so stoked. I really wanted him to win. I was bummed when MM93 made the pass and was like, "Ok, 2nd place works too." Then Rossi passed him and I was praying for a #46 crash in my corner. Oh well, MM93 taking 5/5 was my second choice.

I had a great time on track today. There was no action on m corner, but in a way that's a good thing. Here's some pics from this morning.
