I had to have a google as well. Interesting little fact though, he must be one of very few riders to have won a race on three makes of bikes.

Eddie Lawson is the only other who springs to mind in the modern era.

Just catching up. Lorenzo won the tire gamble at the best time and place, big race win. The tank modification looks like it helped with fatigue. Too bad it looks like he'll be back at Yamaha with tail tucked firmly between Rossi's legs. I wonder how long the transparent love fest between Jlo/Vr will last. Rossi shook hands with Jlo in the same way he shook hands with Marc at Catalunya, he dud it because he was happy to be on the unexpected podium.

Marquez will not eclipse records riding bin or win, longevity matters and given Rossi's career has been artificially padded and extended, Marc will have to dial down his approach to the one he utilized last year. In his haste to stick it to Rossi he handed him a podium.

Dovi is aware he made the wrong tire choice.

Why wasn't Cuntslow penalized? Isn't the "new" Racing Dereliction on top of rider "safety"? Bullshit explanations as usual, "safety" is a situational proposition, the shit is an absolute farce. You are either dowling on the racing line or you're not.

Michelin are shit.

Suzuki is lame.

KTM is a waste of money.

Aprilia, the new old Ducati.

It should also be said of Lorenzo's win, at least he didn’t quit like Rossi and Quitslow.

Also, thank Dog Pirro lived from that stunning crash. Jesus H mothafucken Christ, what happened there?

Oh and...let's Stoner some credit for developing a winning bike. Not to mention coaching Lorenzo and Dovi by showing them.

Kudos to Stoner for offering his insight and Lorenzo and Dovi for being big enough to listen to it.

Hit a bump causing brake pads to float. Panicked and grabbed too much brake... you know the rest.

I just watched Pirro's crash again. FUCK!

Please make leather air suits mandatory. We have the technology.


On another note, I wasn't fawning over Marc's almost save, I was cringing all the way hoping the front wouldn't catch and bring him back onto the hot track.

Sure fans can be cunts, I'm one of them, but at the end of the day these guys bring us joy, even if it's in the form of them getting beat by 'our' guy.

Marquez had admitted earlier in the weekend he "didn't like" the "strange" front tyre allocation available in Mugello - and said after the race that his costly crash was down to him having to race the hard front compound.

Mishitlin.
