Exactly.

It fascinates me that what I'm guessing is the highest paid rider on the grid is slower than the test rider. In fact he's typically the slowest of the factory Duc riders. Now before you boppers go getting all excited claiming he's a failure, let's just remember this is a 3 time MotoGP champ with a superior head to head with the goat. He's the strongest teammate Rossi has ever faced. And the goat also failed miserably on the same machine. What does this teach us about our beloved sport? How about the whole thing is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. 7 time and 3 could easily be a combined big fat donout 0 and Cal Crashsnow could actually be the 10 times goat afterall. No really it says other than the few aliens Stoner and Marquez the rest are interchangeable contenders ala Vinales move to Yamaha. I wish Dovi had of got the spot Rossi now occupies back when he was the top Tech 3 finisher, we could actually be referring to Dovi 3 time based on this current head to head vs Lorenzo.

I remember saying this when Krops graced our forum...openly.

His response, do you remember it?


"Fuck adults." Krops

Should be an exceptionally competitive race.

Marquez is pressured to make up what he lost at the last race.

Vinales needs to show that the last race result was repeatable.

Dovi will want to win in Italy, tho knowing how pragmatic he is, I don't think he'll take overmuch risk.

Lorenzo still wanting to show he can ride half as well as Dovi.

Unless it rains and it all goes to shit.

There is around an 80% chance of rain at race time, I'm thinking the title contenders will be in damage limitation mode if it is. They know they can't win the title tomorrow, but sure as hell can lose it. I think we might see a rider like Petrucci or Miller get the win if it's wet.

Good call. With the points so close and riders and bikes more equal than we've seen from three top riders in a long time, I think there will be a degree of Dovi-like pragmatism all around. Watching Dovi in the final laps of quali, I felt, that while he wasn't exactly sandbagging, I do feel he was being discreet about his level of confidence.
