And we're off...

and racing.

The 2008 season of MotoGP kicked off this morning with a win by Young Australian of the Year, Casey Stoner. This was the first race in the history of MotoGP that had been run under lights and at night.

New rider to this class, Jorge Lorenzo, finished second and was a very impressive rider. Another new rider, Andrea Dovizioso, also had an impressive debut by out riding Rossi to finish 4th.

I'm just a little excited about this season as there are new riders, new team compositions and very fast bikes to watch. The thing that I like most about MotoGP is the bikes. Unlike the Superbikes, these bikes are all non-production bikes and are purpose built racing bikes. They are constantly under development and always making improvements that one day might just make it to a production bike.
