Out of interest, do you either frequent or own a burger van on the A31?

Both lol

I've eaten there, mind you was a good few years ago now. Nobody here wants a long run these days.

No no no no...he will 'grow up' this weekend...preserve his tire's like he use to...hang with the front group...and then BANG (no, not crash) take the win in the last part of the race.
His brain must be going 500km/h right now, working it all out...
'You wait...'

...and he will dedicate his win to Nicky (whose birthday is 14 days after Johann's on 30.july).

Have to admit that I am a hard bastard when it comes to supporting riders that aren't Aussies (small town syndrome and all), but Zarco is fast becoming the rider that is the 2nd favourite.

Haven't seen huge amounts but I like the style, the seeming aggression and attitude of 'I dont care who the fuck you are but I belong here as much as you'.

Good to see the brashness, now to see the racecraft.

If what I have seen so far is not hobbled in some way, he may become Tech3 first MotoGP race winner this season

Mat O. touched on it, but Paul O. has got the details (1.7l engine in a bicycle...anybody?):

The Vintagent: 1914 PEUGEOT GP; 500cc, 8-VALVES, DOHC

Zarco is riding a damn good bike, and as someone said he has skill, balls, and nothing to lose. But he's no Stoner, so better hold the Marseilleuse and wait a bit more. Pressure now is building really quick on him, it is to be seen how he copes with it.
