    Rins, Mir, Quatararo and Miller all have the ability to take it to MM I think, problem is they don't have the bikes underneath them to do it just yet. Unless JL bonds with the Honda or some better riders get on the Duke next year its going to be another MM show.

    Great to watch MM mature so much though

    Silly season has kicked off in fine style. Somebody saw Lorenzo's manager talking to a Ducati rep.
    So from that:
    Lorenzo is going to Pramac
    Miller is going to Aruba Ducati (WSBK) or
    Scott Redding is going to Aruba or...

    Where Pramac would get the kind of cash needed to pay Lorenzo is not mentioned, nor why Miller would be going anywhere right now.

    Lot of riders off contract this year so the rumour mills will get up to speed.

    The main players are all tied up until the end of 2020, if Lorenzo walked from Honda (read of the rumours too) they'd struggle to get a top rider to replace him.

    There has been a development. Miller says the rumour is based on fact. He has been in talks with Pramac and they are happy with him. He says ‘nearly everyone’ at Ducati is happy. Which raises the question, who is not?

    Miller has no plans to go to WSBK, I guess he’d be eyeing up JL’s Honda ride.

    Holy shit that came out of nowhere.
    Miller to Repsol would make the most sense if this were to happen, love his comments on JL though. I think Gigi is the one trying to push this through and Pramac don't like it.


    I reckon Jack could ride the Honda, he did pretty well on the shitty sat bike that no one else ever did well on and he has the dirt track experience like MM. He's doing very well this year and is the top placed sat rider right now, be crazy for him to be out of the seat

    Health probs mean I don't sleep much, I have noticed with the new approach Sky Sport has, we're getting repeats of practice/races ? Think its Ch 55.... I only found it Channel surfing one night.
    BSB has been repeated several times this week.

    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    It seems they are showing all the practice sessions - and we had the Suzuka 8 hour too. I guess if they are going to have a dedicated motor sport channel they have to fill it up. No complaints from me.

    Ive been watching the speedway GPs too. You can read at the same time and if the commentators start screaming you can switch attention to the race.

    Oh, and Jack Miller was cracking jokes about his situation but he is acually quite upset. Not without reason.

    MotoE Austria

    Cool.
    I am really liking the MotoE. Short races however, but that will change over time.
    BUT, what the fuck is up with Smith? He had a face like a smacked arse!!!
    Get a grip bro. Enjoy it.

    Watching the UK coverage and comments indicate Miller has re-signed with Pramac
    So it’s,as you were
    It's OK to disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    Dovi did a Marquez on Marquez and claimed a really great win for Ducati.

    Pretty good racing all round.

    Yams 3,4 and 5 who would've thought ?
    Although a mile away ! The bikes do everything or did, but are missing about 30 hp.
    Ducati has plenty and still more than Honda by the looks ?

    And I expected Marquez to cruise off and win by 5 seconds. Seldom have I been so happy to be wrong.
