I realise that Moto GP (the Motorcycle Grand Prix) doesn’t have much of an audience in Australia but I just thought you’d like to know that last night was the last round of the Moto GP and Nicky Hayden pinched the world championship off Rossi by a whisker and my god it was exciting.
The championship hasn’t come down to the last race in years. Last year Rossi won by over 100 points (you get 25 points for a win). This year though, Hayden had been top of the table until the penultimate race where his team mate crashed into him and Rossi just snuck past him in the points table. You’ve never seen someone so upset in your life, than
Then, 4 laps into the last race, Rossi goes in too hard on cold tyre and crashes out.
Ok, so I’ve made it sound really boring here but my god it was exciting.
