Alex Rins!

Dude deserves his own thread.

Alright he did not win, he could have had, but that's not the point.

That was a pristine ride. He's been fast, smooth, aggressive but not reckless, solid and not scared of mad dogs like Zarco, Cal and Miller. Not scared of the conditions either, while many top riders (not Marquez tho ) have been a bit cautious on the first few laps.

So here's to Alex, congrats on your first podium man!

Out of the lead 4 i wanted miller to win and next choice was Rins. I've always rooted for him since moto3.

Side point: Vinales would have been much better off sticking with Suzuki. He'd have a chance for championship in the next few years if he stayed.

I'm not sure about Miller, he does well but then does something stupid. As for Vinales, yup he should have stayed as I can't understand why anyone would want to share a garage with Rossi.

I wanted Zarco or Alex to win. If Tito being 7th is not a fluke, it will be a really fun season.

Compared to last year he has been strong but he will not come close to a top ten finish in the championship

He's not a top 10 rider so that is all good IMHO.

But credit where is due, he put down a good ride on sunday.
