I think in the grand scheme of things people will start thinking about next year sooner rather than later and try and get themselves noticed and into the best teams.


Its funny you just posted this, I was just going to comment on if any1 will be able to put up any kind of challenge to Terol this year. He just needs to keep riding consistent, and avoid injuries at all costs. If he can do that, he'll be world champ with plenty of rounds to spare.

I think we might see the most successful 125 season ever, records could fall. Terrol goes well at LeMans i think so i just wonder when he'll get beaten and who it'll be.

Besides the race in Catalunya where he crashed on the final lap, Nico Terol has finished ahead of Every single rider on the current 125 grid at every GP since Valencia 2009!!!!

I Ride: The original
Go Paris!!!!! Toby Moody's pre season tip for the championship comes good in only the kid's fourth GP. Superb and very composed. I'm not sure Terrol did too much wrong - I've seen much wider lines into Raccordement. The way Vinalez was poised to dart underneath him was brilliantly measured.



A legend is born?

That was the sort of ride you expect from class veterans and championship contenders, not a 16 year-old in his fourth race. Stunning ride from Vinales.

It was going to be impressive when someone finally raised their game and took it to Terol, the fact that it was a rookie, in his 4th race, riding well above his qualifying pace and keeping a level head makes it simply incredible. One to watch for the future

Well the 20sec penalty for Zarco is a farce IMO.

What are race direction trying to do? ENCOURAGE RIDERS NOT TO RACE?

Fair enough simmo last time out was out of order, But that move by Zarco was a touch of class.

He lined it up out of penultimate corner and nailed Terol fair & square.

It was Terols own fault for leaving the door open for Zarco to go for.

MOTO GP is fast becoming a farce



Lets see what they can fix (that aint broken) in moto2.
