Both French guys will be under pressure. Neither one has shown consistent signs of weathering a storm.

Weather forecast shows partly sunny fri and sat with rain and 53F temps for Sunday.

I was at this race in 2003 and it was pissing down rain then too. The race was notable for an appearance by Bayliss.... it was just an appearance.

Gonna be a rude wake up call for the class of 2020. I think it is possible some of these guys have never been on a MotoGP bike in the rain? Will be especially interesting if qualy is run in the dry and it’s wet on Sunday.

If it’s wet, let’s see who stays on the bike.

Advantage Rins, maybe Dovi.

But of course, it’s the year of surprises.

Jack Miller seems to be good in the rain and don't forget the old fox.

Can't recall the last time Rossi was on the podium in the rain.

There was full wet races in 2016 & 2017. There was most probably at least 1 in 2018 but I can't remember any proper wet races last year.
