2020 Monster Energy Grand Prix České republiky

Yowsuh! Czech republic GP tomorrow. Two - count 'em - two Frenchies in the first two spots. I have really liked Zarco for a long time. Hoping like hell he gets to prove his naysayers wrong. Good to see Morbid in 3rd Last year 2nd and 3rd on the podium were Ducatis. Won't see either Marquez up there tomorrow.

Seems as though he likes the Lorenzo developed Ducati as he did the Lorenzo developed Yamaha.

Wow....what a good race....

Binder - Remarkable!
Franky - Good to see him progress
Zarco - That penalty loop ride was awesome
Rins - Give that man some pain killers
Rossi - You need to be more agressive in your passes
Olivera - 3 more laps the 3rd was yours
Fabio - Keep your cool and fight the next 2 weeks.

Dovi - Needs to the next 2 weeks or else his job goes in 2021
P.Asparagus - Still want to go Repsol HRC?
Maverick - you are killing me with your starts

Keep in mind that the Pedrosa has been helping KTM develop their bike into what we are seeing week on week....HRC should be begging Pedrosa to come back as test rider for them, since right now their bike development is at a dead end thanks to MMs riding style....

Stupid decision by Race Direction. Pol brought that on himself with the mistake he made a few corners before.

Kind of what I thought, but Simon Crafar who has won 1 more premier class race than most rather differed. If he doesn’t make the mistake Zarco isn’t there, and he seemed to be coming back over to the racing line as much as Zarco was grabbing it. Crafar reckoned Zarco needed to be clearly in front to take that line. I think Pol was riding a little raggedly because he was worried about Binder getting away from him myself.

FWIW Chris Vermulen sided with Zarco. Said Pol runs wide Zarco keeps his line and there’s not much that Zarco could do. He also believed evasive action from Zarco would’ve resulted in both of them going down.

Yes. The line was open and zarco didn't deliberately punt him. Racing.
