I like how Cal was bought a birthday cake by his team, it must be the only thing they've bought him that he hasn't thrown in the gravel.

Interesting to see a race where Lorenzo is the one taking the most risk. Must have killed him to give up top of the podium.

I did have that thought, Dorna have in the past displayed a keenness for the title to go to the last round, but I think this particular result can be explained by normal racing; if it was the last round and MM finishing 4th would cost him the title I suspect he would have pushed harder, but as it was pushing harder in chancy conditions which didnít seem to suit the Honda bikes in general was the main way for him to risk losing the title.

Looking for something to add excitement to Valencia ?
Ok Dovi still has a snowballs chance in hell to win title but that's about it. He does however have 2nd sewn up as does Vinales have 3rd.Pedrosa could steal 4th from Rossi but would probably need a win and Lorenzo has a long shot at taking 5th from Zarco.

Ducati have issued team orders to insure that the championship goes to Valencia. Regardless of what map 8 meant there was obvious orders about giving position to Dovi(I still believe and so do others that Petrucci ran wide to let Dovi straight through in Motegi, a tenth of a second or more that he could've lost waiting to get by Petrucci would've probably meant he couldn't pull off that incredible pass) and not engaging him. I think the question is what are we going to see in Valencia? What are Ducati and by extension Italians(think Capirossi in 125cc) willing to do to see that not only does Marquez DNF or not finish in the top 11 at a track he has never been off the podium at but try to make sure that no one beats Dovi across the line? After all if they weren't willing to go to extreme lengths to make sure these things happen then what is the point of Lorenzo not going for the win? Will Rossi or another Italian purposefully run Marquez off the track? How will they make sure that Vinales, Pedrosa or someone else entirely doesn't win the race? Call me crazy but I'm really worried as a fan about what we could see in Valencia. I admit we could end up seeing a great scrap but I just hope it's all fair.

You're just a Marquez fanboy that's worried he is going to choke at the final round. You guys love to dream up conspiracies since simply watching the sport as it is doesn't seem to be enough entertainment for you.

Now you're emotional and typing 3rd grade level insults. You don't feel embarrassed that as old as you are you don't have the wisdom or imagination to come up with better insults?

If Marquez chokes and tosses his RCV down the road at Valencia... you should avoid this forum during the off-season. It'll be hell for you... I'll make sure of it.

That'd be reminiscent of Rossi in 2006 or he could always copy Rossi from 2015, crack under pressure and have an epic meltdown.

What happened to Vinales being in Marquez's head? What happened to Rossi's god like development skills? You've been awefully quiet while your title hopes have faltered epically since Rossi got the tyre and the chassis he demanded. You've been awfully quiet since the middle of the year... it must suck to be wrong so often
If Marquez chucks it down the road and Dovi wins I won't lose any sleep over it. If Dovi wins the championship and I mean he wins it not Ducati then I'll be happy for him because he's one of the nicest guys going. It's just a sport I don't know any of these guys personally. I'm not like you, you're so worried that Marquez is going to eclipse Rossi that it keeps you up at night. Inventing theories like Vinales being in Marquez's head, inventing rules that don't exist so you can look elsewhere as to why your idol lost the only chance he has had in almost 10 years of taking a title. I've said in another thread if Marquez fucks up that's on him, you won't see me crying like I'm sure you were two years ago. I've seen guys I look up to more that I could ever look up to Marquez lose(Silva, Tszyu, Jones Jr, Pacquaio, Aldo off the top of my head) in sports that I actually professionally compete in. I lost no sleep, I moved on with my life.

You can make sure of something online as much as you want. But I tell you something in person you wouldn't dare trying to make anything hell for me. You hide behind your keyboard knowing that no matter what you say nobody can hurt you. Face to face you'd be a little bitch who'd be too scared to say anything that you thought might upset me. Keep hiding behind your keyboard tough guy but I want you to know it really doesn't bother me. I pity you.
