    Was another great race to watch . Well done Jack . I,ve seen a few Bradbury comments , but don,t think that,s the case . More like , " to finish first , first you must finish " . Very skillful riding display .

    Well done Jack! that was bloody wet!!!!! when it gets that wet it is skill & riding abillity the power & the bike advantage the top riders have in dry id not there, plus you need Ball's!!!!

    It's great that MotoGP race wet or dry, those conditions would stop V8 Supercars for sure! & only has to have a few drops of rain to cancell Nascar, but not sure why, Drag racing the same can't race in wet!!!

    Great ride by the young gun...hopefully it gives him some confidence (not that he's shown anything lacking in that area) to finish races. Eighth on the grid from the restart he still had to stay upright while more notable riders like Rossi tumbled and eventually ride around the likes of Marquez to lead the remaining half dozen laps to win. All in all 13 bikes finished, 8 didnt. According to the Foxtel commentators Millers win is the first time a non factory rider has won in 16 years and the third winner NOT named Rossi, Marquez, Lorenzo, Pedrosa or Stoner in 8 years...! All those years slidin around on the mud & dirt out of Townsville as a junior dirt champ came in handy last night...

    Lets not get to carried away, with a 38% crash ratio in the premire class i think there are a few more candidates for a full factory bike. He rode very very well but you have to do that every race, he has yet to prove that

    Good on Jack. Hopefully he can build a bit more momentum following the win, when more experienced riders were going down.

    I tell you, some of the crashes, particularly Rossi's, seemed a bit surprising to me -- the Michelin front just let go with minimal lean angle. Not exactly confidence inspiring.

    Well seeing he rides a Honda (manufacturer) and is signed to them for three (3) years i think that qualifies as being sponsored.....
