Cal will unfortunately be knowhere this year, but at least I think he'd not fall off the bike in a wild attempt to catch up.
Rossi, ok he's better than half the bums on bike seats (they relly need to get rid of the dross), but I predict another baren year, as he circulates waving at the custard crowd.
Lorenzo, another rider I can't stand ever since he started the Rossi antics in his last year in the 250 class.
Pol Asparagus, well it'll only be a few races before Zarco sorts him out and I expect Oliveira to be snipping at his heels come mid season, then it'll be KTM coming out in preference to the smooth riders than the point, shoot and crash riders.

MM will win again this year.
Like him or not, Jorge may surprise you.

Maybe he might, but he'll be 4th or 5th come seasons end. The unfortunate fact of any type of sport is that unless you win, then its an exercise in futility. Who would want to be remembered as the 2nd best?

Just because Peco did well in the tests, means nothing come the races

Me I want Zarco, Cal and as a rookie Miguel Oliveria plus there's a few other in the mix, but those are the 3 for me this season.

French, British and Portuguese? Don't you have to be Italian or Spanish to win the title? Or at least Australian.

Hopefully not for much longer, its time the rest of the world showed what it can do. I'm getting a bit fed up with Dorna's favouritism to Spain and Italy, by having 4 races in Spain and 2 in Italy, they should be cut back to 1 each and then let other countries have a go.

Favoritism is there no doubt - but the degree to which a rider being at a track in their home country actually influences their number of wins may be debatable. How many Americans have won at COTA? And how many times have we seen a very talented teammate lead a race at his “home” track for 18 laps only to be overhauled at the last minute by three more talented riders?
