    On a positive note: Moto-E gets the first outing this weekend. Whatever you feel about E-bikes, you must admit that another race can only be good. The lineup of riders is certainly interesting too.

    Agree and agree. MotoE won't be really exciting I think, but will certainly be interesting and intriguing, something different and a glimpse into the future.

    Sad news from Japan, Mitsuo Itoh has died. You might need to be getting on a bit to remember him, a Suzuki factory rider from 1961 he was the first and only Japanese rider to win an IoM TT. His whole working life was spent with Suzuki, including a period with Kevin Schwantz's GP effort.

    Marc will win it tonight.
    Fab, Vin and Rins will scrap for the remaining places.

    After watching quali last night I think its time Ducati give Miller Dovis seat, he can make a bike turn that doesn't want to turn, I remember in Moto3 his ability to place a bike exactly where he wanted it impressed me big time. Seems Dovi is trying to think his way around it when Miller just bends it to his will, doesn't always work but with full factory support he might just be the guy they need.

    Dovi certainly seems to be struggling,i think the duc has stood relativley still whilst yamaha,honda,and suzuki have improved.Honda especially seem to be able to improve the bike throughout the season and i am impressed that only in the first part of the season they are already trying new frames to improve the already new frame.Whilst MM is the major part of the equation Honda themselves always seem to react to what their team is saying.And MMs team is also a major part of his success.

    I was listening to the on board videos during the practice sessions. I think the Honda might be running the crankcase in a vacuum. Just a theory, but there was a definite pump/actuator noise through the the tail when the team turn the bike on and off.

    Overnight Mat Oxley posted a video clip of a Honda team 8 Hour pit stop. I can't link to it but I found another one on Youtube. The part that takes the longest time is the gas fill. The word rapid doesn't cover it.

    This annoys me, last year up to silverstone Rabat was up there doing good work, it's only because his horrific crash that this year he's been struggling IMO, he's starting to come good now but his team want to ditch him? Dumb. Motogp have a lot to answer for in allowing riders out on track there.

    Shame BB wont get a Moto2 title as he deserves it, there's no way Alex would be on top right now if he was on a Kalex but this should push things forward a bit at KTM, BB is one of my all time favs of recent years. Only issue I see is the factory is going to have some hard calls to make as both Olivera and Binder are possibly more capable than Zarco and to a lesser degree Pol... Someone's losing a seat in 21.

    And yes, tough on Rabat if he is losing his ride, he has worked really hard.
