Anything can happening in racing I guess (injuries etc) but if Assen shows Marc on a track that doesn't suit his bike (2nd)... not much left to say.

The guy is a freak, on top of that he never gets injured despite his countless practice session crashes. Other than injury I don't see how the others will claw back the points deficit.

At work so missing out on the practices dammit
When you are doing it that much.... it's not luck or lack thereof. It is poor riding. He and Rossi should retire.

Mercurial Marquez doesn't crash - he just slides gracefully.

Anything can happen yes. Rain on race day, wet track then drying up. Starting to rain during the race. Him crashing. Fuck knows what. It aint over, but its pretty damn hard for the rest to catch up the points. Still lorenzos fault.

What I'm trying to say is that Stoner's immense value as a rider made Preziosi's bike results a lot better that the actual bike's potential. Especially for all wins that came after 2007.

IMHO, of course.

Bottom line is that no-one was going to beat MM this year absent major personal misadventure to MM, who has already dropped points from minor misadventure.

If the title being open because MM might crash and have a season affecting injury floats your boat good for you, my preference is to watch MM who has never been the guy I primarily support deservedly win another title by being the best out there if he is so.

We all know barcelona would have ended a whole lot different. But then lorenzo happened. Another easy win at sachsenring for marc on sunday. 100% honda track more or less. Will be interesting to see what rins can do and quartararo. Pretty sure they will hang pretty good and can surprise. And crashlow. Ducati wont be there at all. Pretty slow track and it aint a ducati track at all. They have been pretty bad there over the years, even with stoner. Yamaha factory showed great pace there last year and they have looked pretty good the last two races.

I can't help but think you are wrong there, Dovi will be behind his teammate come seasons end, he's riding as if his tyres are made of marshmallow (got to preserve them). Rossi will not be in the top 5 Quatarraro and Vinales will easily pass him, I reckon Rossi will lose it again at either turn 1 or 12 in Saschenring
Dovi will be 6th or lower.

In retrospect I find it funny how everybody lost their minds over the Ducati "rain-deflector" earlier this season, as if it was the final piece of the puzzle to give them total dominance. Seems like Ducati have regressed this year... or maybe they stayed the same and everybody else got better?

I'm unimpressed by them, they can put 3 riders in the top 10 consistently but suffer to get into the podium. They don't have the speed advantage anymore, even the Suzuki looks competent in the straights, and the bike can't turn. Maybe they shouldn't have told Petrucci to hold back when fighting his teammate, he seems to have better pace and race craft than Dovi these days. They need to reinvent themselves and the bike I fear.
