Round 3: Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas 2017
 
May as well get this shit started.

Vinales is the favorite to win this race obviously.

VR may do well here. Unsure about MM.

We'll hopefully find out something more about the factory Ducati.

Hope everyone from the forum who is travelling to TX for the race has a safe and enjoyable trip! Hoping to get out there in 2018.

Just a couple from my last year there . If the picture doesn't tell you, I am going with 93, AGAIN. In fact, I am going with him until the season ends. I have to be right once, or Vinales could get every win and a record that he may not deserve.

Awesome picture of Marc!

This is the last time before a race weekend I will pick MM to win. If he doesn't preform well here, we might as well just start every thread talking about tires. Because barring an injury or something this will be the shortest season in motogp history.

1.Marc
2. Shit does any other position matter this weekend?

Marquez is the favorite to win... he's also the favorite to experience psychological trauma if Vinales wins.

Hoping both Rossi and Vinales beat Marquez... I want this forum's haters to be so pissed off they'll be busy posting 2,000 word dissertations about tire, electronic, and race control conspiracies after race.

But... but... Marc's bike only makes 100 hp and has a chassis made by Schwinn. But... Michelin must have made special tires for the Yamaha. Rossi installed ultrasonic sound generators around the track and they're specifically tuned to distract Marc's concentration. 10 years ago Rossi had a special tire, so that's proof he received another one in April of 2017.

COTA seems to be one of those circuits that just offer some brilliant photo opportunities.

Certainly most circuits have great spots but for me, COTA due to design has such a different style of opportunity due to the large levels of tarmac and paint .......... almost 'industrial' like when compared to PI for example.

It definitely does.

While the photo opportunities are quite good there, I'm not much of a fan of the circuit. It's a giant ripoff of other circuits' ideas. It doesn't have the natural flow a Phillip Island has. Being that it was the first purpose built grand prix track built in the USA in modern memory, I felt it received far more accolades than it was deserving of. But, motorcycle racing seems to go better there than any of the auto races held there to date.

I'm not even picking Marc to win this.

I expect Vinales to, but if Marc manages to extend his streak here, it will be a nice surprise.

I am going with Marc at COTA, Rossi 2nd, Mav 3rd... This is Marc's track, Rossi needs to finish in front of his teammate to save some face. Dovi has also run good here.

I agree. My pick is based on hope for a good season to come. Not that I'm type to not watch because its a runaway. Credit where credit is due. There will still be a lot of parody behind him. Oddly this is a strongest group of talent I remember seeing including how well the rookies are riding. The reason I say odd is because with all that said the early favorite is not someone expected. So to me this season is shaping up to be special regardless.
