Marquez not a team mate blocker like rossi

Yep, that's right folks. Here's a rider who believes in his ability and only do the blocking on the track.

Lorenzo also admitted his first test on Honda machinery in November’s post-Valencia test is likely to be an eye-opener.

“For sure it’s going to be a shock the first time I jump on the bike, you only have to see the difference in size [compared to the Ducati],” he said.

Talk about an understatement. I'm sure he's seen enough of the Hondas in action, and in particular, how MM has had to ride them to get on to the top spot on the podium. Mr. Smoothe is going to miss that nice stable Ducati platform. If he does well with HRC - it will put him in the running for legend status. I don't envy him the press of having to reinvent himself.

I think the Ducati has been a good prepping ground for him. He should be able to employ his sweeping style in the RCV. I think Lorenzo will be Dani V2.0

Marquez won't gain anything but motivation from Lorenzo becoming his team-mate.

He'll want to smoke him soooo badly. I reckon he will but it won't be easy.

Is it 2019 yet??

Shhh... I'm pretending there's a chance in hell that the championship won't be decided at Motegi; followed by a lukewarm "Mundialito". (Copyright Jumkie)

That's what I believe too. I think the first half of 2019 Marc will have the edge. But after that I think it will be full on pressure. From there on, I think we will see a change in Marc's riding style.

That picture looks like Rossi wants to bang him off the track maybe even ending MM's career

Doesn't need a new thread so will post it here.

Johnny Rea reckons that he could do better than Cal Crutchlow.

He is certainly the class of the field at the moment in Superbikes, but I still think he'd be only as good as Cal, whom is doing pretty well these last few seasons.

Do you think he should have an attempt at a Satellite ride? I'd like to see him take the challenge, but don't think he would.

Much as I like Mr Rea, and he is a noteworthy rider, he's talking crap, but it'd be nice to see him try.
Must admit though I'd have liked to see him on thee Honda instead of Lorenzo.
