I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
Japan Grand Prix at Twin Rings of Motegi

2016 MotoGP
1 93 Marc MARQUEZ.........SPA....Repsol Honda Team
2 04 Andrea DOVIZIOSO...ITA....Ducati Team..................2.992
3 25 Maverick VIŅALES.....SPA...Team SUZUKI ECSTAR....4.104
4 41 Aleix ESPARGARO......SPA...Team SUZUKI ECSTAR....4.726
5 35 Cal CRUTCHLOW........GBR...LCR Honda...................5.049

Less than a race separates the leaders. If Marc crashes out of a race, it's a very different title race.

I think Marc can crash out of one race and still win the championship.

He's 28 points ahead of Vinales and I don't think V has what it takes this year. Partially the bike but partially him too.

He's 16 ahead of Dovi but he could claw back 9 points on him easy. Dovi doesn't have what it takes and perhaps the bike doesn't either.

But, Marc could hurt himself too.

So close to the end now each race is one less chance to recover.

Hope he stays on!!

Also, so glad these three weekends are finally here ...

1. Marquez
2. Lorenzo (A girl can dream can't she?)
3. Zarco

Can't bloody wait regardless of the result. Best part of the Oceania races is getting to see them at a normal time instead of late at night!

The whole weekend looks like shit. This the type race where a non contender ( Lorenzo,Petrucci, Crutchlow, Dani) can throw caution to the wind and maybe pull off the win. Vinales can't go for broke yet, nor can Dovi. If they throw it down the road it's over. Marquez is in the best position to go for broke but I doubt he will, but who knows with him, dude is fearless. He may just say to himself fuck it, I'm better than these guys , if I crash I can make it up. I'm not going to try and predict this weekend, just hold my breath and hope for the best.

Probably the nicest landing from a high side I've ever seen.

Just when I was starting to think Crutchlow was less of an asshole. He was going way too fast, loses his shit and hits Lorenzo from behind, but blames Lorenzo. What a cunt.
