Nothing. I guessed his soft front did him in and and he just fell back.

This kid is messing with us. I'm sure he stayed with the train just for having some fun. He is incredible.

I figured he did a tremendous effort to launch into p1 and stay. Same with dovi I think, Ducati couldn't possibly be on the podium here.

Entertaining race!

My thoughts during race, Mishitlin bunched them up, of course the cool breeze played it's role, but the tire choice was limited effectively given they all went for relatively the same choice. Race pace way down until the final laps, nobody had tires they loved but rather managed, which explains why it looked like a 125s race. The idea is to avoid Marc checking out in the first stage of race like he did at the end. It was entertaining, that's the point.

Saves by Marc, Rossi, Rins, Dovi, Lorenzo in close proximity were amazing. Congrats to Rins and Viñalez for their confidence building podiums. If that "incident" between Dovi and Rossi had been Marc and Rossi we'd already be on page thousand with Race Dereliction in the mix. Not sure why they needed to pretend they were reviewing the Rins Marc incident, maybe to make it look like they're doing something.

The yellow vs red smoke war is hilarious, however I hope they ban this shit. On last lap I thought someone had gone down, as it initially looked like gravel smoke ahead of the racers from the camera angle. I'm sure it's got to be distracting for the riders, these idiots (saw both colors) throwing smoke bombs onto the impact zones off the stands before the finish.






(Been busy, will catch up on forum when time allows.)



I have a buddy who works for Repsol. He said before they signed Lorenzo, given Pedrosa's poor form, HRC actually considered hiring Cuntslow. Immediately Honda engineers started to re-design modification to accommodate their potential new rider. Before they scrapped it, he was able to sneak a peek and sent me this pic.





If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Very possible > https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/90...inales-contact

But I like this part very much

We would like to think a certain 9 time world chump could learn from such statement...................

But Dovi seems to echo Marc's

Some things never change. It racing, not ballroom dancing!! Maybe ask Petrucci to be there next time, so he can move over for you.
