The riders have said exactly the opposite... the track is fantastic and it was and still is among nearly everyones favourite track. Specific comments from all motogp riders were that the resurface is excellent except for maybe a small bump in turn six and that the grip levels where great. Some even made comments that it would be great if some of the other tracks they have to race on were as good.

Maybe the tyre manufacturers have to have a rethink and do a better job next year or the other circuits need to improve their surfaces.

What was I thinking, Nahh, your right, maybe they should of laid a mediocre low grip asphalt and left a few holes. At least that way the tyres would of worked better, it would be more consistent with some other tracks on the calendar and then the tyre manufacturers would not have been caught out by a good and grippy surface. I like your reasoning...

FORMULA 1

I am shore DORNA will bring in a forced pit stop for tyres just like F1. Wont it be exciting(yawn). What has happened to our sport, I remember the good old days of Roberts, Doohan, Lawson and Gardner ect When their was no electronics, full grid,s AND brilliant racing,  DORNA have got a lot to answer for. Same with WSB since DORNA took it over teams are leaving in their droves. Thank goodness their is still BSB What a thriller it was on Sunday. If you want to watch real men race who respect each other and get on with it watch BSB

fairly clearly

 an unintended consequence of Wosi's acclaimed  democratic rider vote on the Bridgestone new carcass tyre last year. Valentino himself has admitted they got that one wrong.

Won't be sufficiently durable under race conditions I seem to recall a certain dissenter saying.

also

big problems for Yamaha runners, particularly Crutchlow, at Catalunya 2013.

See Visor Down, 18/06/13.

I quote
"Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi have both stated that even the hard front Bridgestone tyres are too soft"

And one Valentino Rossi regarding those same tyres
"Casey must have been a magician, who could see into the future. But he was right".
