I actually root for a few riders to win to make the championship fun to watch even though I think MM will win it anyway. Rossi is the only one I donít care for.

I still root for Lorenzo. It's been a difficult few years but he's still my #1 and I firmly believe he will come good on it.

I root for MM93. Love him or hate him, he's an absolute phenomena. An alien. A legend in our lifetime. The boy got skillz.

I root for crashy cal. He makes my toes curl with the things he says but he's one of the good guys and I'd really like him to do well.

I root for the wee McPhee. Not GP series, I know. He's a fellow scot though, plus one of my mates sponsors him. Moto3 seems almost random... the wee mcphee is fleeing on though!

I still root for Luthi. I was excited to see him move up to MotoGP and shame it never worked out. I watched a few races pretty much via the sidebar thing that shows race position to see whether Luthi or Lorenzo were passed anyone yet... Maybe it was the bike Luthi had that he never got on with as he's doing pretty well back in Moto2 now.

And lastly I root for them all. They are all gods to me. I'm in awe of their skills, the lifestyle they have chosen, their dedication, their resilience, their spirit. I'd be 100% star struck if I were ever to see any in real life and not just on telly and internet.

Miller.

He is an Aussie ............. enough said



Bias as all fuck but I genuinely support this dude as he has copped a heap of shit from the armchair experts of the world, yet keeps getting up and giving it a go.

His results may not be there but by fuck he is good value to watch and see be interviewed as he can't make up his mind which variation of english and other language to use this week.

To me, across the board we have so many robots that say the politically correct thing, behave appropriately and look good all the time where with Miller he is a bogan, says what he things and really looks like a busted ass but man, he still gives value.

His only issue for me is he is a Queenslander but the fact he was born in UnZed kind of offsets that as Australia's smaller brother is a bloody good spot and has produced many a decent rider across the years ............. unlike fucking Tasmania that looks like a haemorrhoid tagged to Victoria.






Oh, and AJV, bloody hell man, watch the size of those picture will ya, in case somebody whinges. It aint rocket science you know (to quote another learned forum colleague)






As for the language and tone ......... well it is beer chat (great idea for a thread as well HP)

Likewise Gaz, I'm a Jack fan and for much the same reasons. He does gets heavily criticised but he always gets on with it and has a good go, what you see is what you get with him, he doesn't seem the game player type. He does have a lot of crashes and bad luck but he keeps his chin up and doesn't let it get him down. Mugello was a huge blow for him. But his results this year are quite good, hope he can keep it up.

Jacks spanglish has me cringing in every interview he does. Its the most bizarre thing, he seems to do a poor attempt at taking on the accent of either the country he is being interviewed in or the accent of the person he is talking with ... or a strange 70/30 split if the two happen to be different. By the time he gets back to Aust at the end of the year he goes back to full blown north Queensland bogan accent, but until that point the guy needs subtitles.

He has even started saying things like "we find the good feeling" "then we start to push". Could you imagine his accent if there was a Chinese round, God help us?

So, as for me: Dovi is my favorite rider since day one. It has been frustrating at times, and it's been 15 years since I celebrated a title of his but he's my guy, whatever happens.

My honorable mentions would be Marquez (and I won't specify why cause I can't say anything that hasn't been said already) but most of all Stoner.

I mean, Casey Fucking Stoner.
An alien. Absolutely insane.

Casey should not be firstly regarded as the only guy that won a title on a Ducati in 2007, he should be firstly regarded as the guy who won 3 races on a Ducati in 2010 with the bike that couldn't stop shaking not even on the straight and that sent any other rider who tried to tame it to a shrink. And none of this is a joke.

Back in 2014 I was in Misano and got to talk to a Ducati mechanic that had been there since before Stoner raced for them.
My favorite question to ask to people who worked in MotoGP teams is always "who's the most impressive guy you ever saw riding?"

and his answer was: "you could be in the paddock, with your headphones on, away from the box. There were 20 bikes on track. From the simple sound you could distinguish one from all the others, you didn't need to have a look: it was Stoner's."

and man I'll never forget those words.
