A Marquez gets another year with Marc VDS

MotoGP?


What are the odds that its going to click after 2 years of basically nothing. Its not like there has been a progression you can point to that says this is going to turn out with Alex winning in Moto2 and moving on to GP. As much as i was hoping he would do well, he has not really been competitive on what is historically one of if not the best bike on the grid.

I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
It's good to have an older brother named Marc. I don't know why some MotoGP guys have rides who don't have an older brother named Marc.

On another Spanish family issue ..... didn't the Espargaro boys get financed by their family until MotoGP?

Here we are a little over a year since I originally posted this and I must admit big progress has been made. Runs up front most races, solid 3rd in the championship and is the only rider besides his teammate with more than 1 win with 3.. With another year of seasoning, a GP shot is not out of the question, especially considering the name. Also, his lanky frame for all we know may be an advantage on a GP bike. I now think he will get a shot after next year.

What a difference a year makes. He's going to be the favourite for the championship next year with Luthi and Morbidelli moving up.

Don't forget Mir, Oliveira and Binder, I think the KTM will be the bike to beat next year.

Oliveira and Binder proved it, even Morbidelli looked average.
