Good race, glad Dani/Lorenzo are ok.

Martinator rode a great race and well deserved victory. Rider of the race for me was Mir, he really pushed that Gixxer to the limit on a track that in theory would be one of its worst. Hopefully now he has the holeshot device he'll be at the front more often.

Binder! When that boy gets his qualifying sorted, I predict a lot of Lorenzo-esque dominant victories. Is it just me does he look a lot like Casey Stoner?

There may be a resemblance but I think that's all it is. I think he may be one of those riders who especially needs the bike dialled in to how he wants without much in his arsenol on riding the bike as he needs to. Oliveira has more consistently extracted the potential of the KTM.

Totally agree on Oliveira. I'd say he's champion material over Binder but I love them both.

I do wonder what happens at KTM in the long term. Four into two doesn’t go, and while I like Binder I think Fernandez and possibly (hopefully from my point of view as an Australian) Gardner may end up better than Him, and both the factory riders have long term contracts.

KTM Factory triple threat in 2023?

Sorry, got mixed up, KTM have signed on for 5 more years in the premier class, Binder is signed until the end of the 2024 season, Oliveira is only signed till the end of the 2022 season. I personally would have the contract situations of the 2 current factory riders reversed, and do wonder whether at least one of their riders signed for next year would have been better off elsewhere. It is hard to give 4 riders the same support whatever the support may be in theory imo, although Ducati seem to be managing to support Zarco and Martin fairly well this year.

Yes - when I was watching the pre-race commentary, and one commentator was interviewing, I think Pit Beirer, Beirer expressed regret that the two current riders heard of the hiring of two new riders, inadvertently - rather than from official in-house sources, leading me to think that KTM was, I don't know, buying out their contracts and replacing them. It wasn't really clear.

I watched the post-race press interviews and what a pleasure! These three podium finishers are very mature for their years. All the riders can be quite thoughtful in how they speak and genuinely keep my attention. This is in such stark contrast to Formula one.
