A very counter intuitive weekend though in which the hard front was actually deemed softer than the medium due to its asymmetry. Completely crucified Pedrosa.

Thanks Mike.

On the Lorenzo win numbers, I make it one more win on a Duke than the supposed GOAT managed in 2 years. I'm sure that the cries of "different bike" won't be long, which are true. However a lot of development done by a rider that supposedly couldn't develop shit seems to have played a massive part in the team's success.

Weird how he so quickly sorted an unfixable bike.
In those two years there were so many salty tears in the Yellow Custard grandstands that Dorna made them wear Depends.

Have you ever tried using Canesten cream after bathing?

Jorge Lorenzo today: "Non si può confrontare la mia esperienza in Ducati con quella di Rossi: sono epoche diverse, la ducati ora è più competitiva mentre quella di Rossi era più complicate".

"I can't compare my experience in Ducati with Rossi's; they were two different eras, the Ducati is more competitive now whereas Rossi's Ducati was more complicated".

Tech 3 has always received last year’s bike and that was that. There has never been any “Support” from Yamaha after they wheel the bikes in after Valencia.

The 2018 aero and upped revs that Zarco has are already more “Support” than he usually would have received. But keep grasping at straws.

I imagine we'd be told that's racing.

But it's only my imagination so I'm maybe wrong.
You mean exactly like everyone has done for MM so far?

He's beating everyone but Marquez in the title race. Stings, doesn't it?

Yes exactly.
But if you defend your man when he fucks up and complain when someone else does, don't cry when others do it for their rider.

As I pointed out as well, 2 of MM's biggest critics admitted, very quickly and quietly, that they got it wrong when crying foul.
