Monster Energy Grand Prix České republiky 2017
 
The break is finally over. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

1.Marc
2.Yamaha
3. Dovi

I think the yamaha pattern on race weekend is one will ride well, one will have issues. That will continue until they figure out the right setting to make sure only Mav has shit weekends. Marc or Dovi will check out, Rossi will play catch up. If mavs bike is good all weekend maybe we will finally get a show down between M&M. Its hard to believe they haven't shared the podium together yet.

Hurray for the end of summer break!!! Finally!!!

Work is SO shit right now I need these GPs to help me through.

No idea whatsoever about any of it, so in Linny's Ideal World, it's
1. JLo ain't never gonna happen
2. Marky Mark (it's about time he did some more of those black n white modelling shots)
3. Someone a bit random like Tito Rabat.

I've enjoyed the Moto2 and Moto3 this year. Haven't really bothered with them before. Moto3 is loads of fun, Moto2 a bit followy.

Dunno, just pleased it's all back on.

Moto 2 is my dogs favorite race, they always get walkies when that's on, can't stand the crappy sound of 30 Honda's.
Looking forward to Sunday though, hopefully it'll have some action/controversy.

All you need to know is Franco Morbidelli. You'll be seeing a lot of him next year.

I disagree. I love the sound of a screaming in line four - but I can fully understand why you object to the cacophony of a field of CBRs in what is a prototype series. Have to hand it to Honda over the years in terms of the reliability of this class...not that the engines are in a particularly high state of tune - in fact one of the problems that Taz has encountered is adapting to the spread of power or lack of it in comparison to a supersport machine. Moto GP itself isn't exactly the sonic-fest that it once was. The bikes have become increasingly harder to differentiate between in terms of their sound.

It'll all change with the introduction of Triumph into Moto2 however. Every triple I've ever owned shod with a race system has sounded rasping. Remember the KHs?

Wait until the Triumphs arrive :)

But will they be triumphant

Given that they only have themselves to beat - I'd say that it's a fair assumption to say yes.

I hope Aleix Espargo does well... only because he liked one of my Instagram photos so I feel he deserves good karma haha

I'm looking forward to the race this weekend - I hate the summer break

Hmmm , reliability issues wouldn't be triumphant!
