    You don't see JL saying the bikes shit, you see him working to bring himself and the bike closer together, just like he did on the Duke. Zarco should be following his lead

    Cheers
    Another article I read said they both had factory bikes, so I really don't know now.

    Cheers

    Both "factory", Morbid has some more sexy bits and revs though I think

    Alex Briggs has been cruising around Europe playing golf but he's back on the job at LeMans now. Here's hoping the weather is OK, it's forecast wet Saturday, better Sunday.

    Dovi and Petrucci are looking forward to Le Man. Dovi said it suits the Duc with the stop start nature of the track.
    The new boys on Yamahas' and the factory ones might have other ideas ?
    Then there's that Marki Mark fella, who may be just too good?

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Nah I think this weekend will be a Ducati kind of weekend, Marquez will have a terrible result, which by his standard will mean 2nd or 3rd place

    Big unknown for me is Rins, that Suzuki will be good in the final section but I think the stop go parts might put him out of the running, either way he needs to quali better if he wants to keep challenging for the title.

    IIRC Mat Oxley laid it out for us sorta like this:

    It's a stop start track so it suits Ducati and they should win.
    But Yamaha have won three of the last four races so it's a Yamaha track.
    Honda won last year though...

    Here's hoping the weather holds.

    Rossi in the shit again ? Broke a chain and had to run back and get his second bike.

    Hoping for a dry FP3 to recover some lost ground and make Q2



    All is forgiven Valentino, Lets do this !!!!!

    The ol' boy has still got a trick or two up his sleeve.

    I see a kid from Turkmenistan, or somewhere equally unlikely, made the front row in Moto3. I liked the commentators remark to the effect that if he wins the guys upstairs will be panicking. Where would you get a copy of the Turkmenistan national anthem at short notice.

    I will be surprised if Canet strings together an entire championship, guys fast but a move like that with his main rivals in the gravel was pretty dumb. Riders like Toba and Masia are the reason I watch moto3, fast and young

    The conversation in the paddock would be different if Toba had been knocked off. But he wasn't so eh....

    I've got a soft spot for the Japanese riders. Was hoping to see Suzuki send it home

    Yeah the sport needs exciting riders who aren't Spanish or Italian, that's why guys like Olivera, Binder, Miller, Quatararo etc are great to see.
    It's taken Toba a few years to find his stride but any rider who is not Spanish or Italian has to learn the ropes on the Euro seen, so you'd expect them to take a bit longer. Suzuki has been in the paddock a few more years than Toba so I'm hanging my hat on Toba to be the rider that makes it through to MGP.


    Speaking of Motogp, I think you could safely say Marquez now has the bike he needs to dominate the Ducatis, it's good in all areas and he can pick and choose the way he riders it to make the lap time. Watching him out of the final corner walk away from Miller was very telling of how good the 2019 Honda is, he's faster with way less risk.
    It's a shame DP isn't healthy and on it this year as they've finally made it not need to be flung into corners at 10000mph to make a laptime and they can run a softer front, it looks like a bike he'd love with his point and shoot style.

    Not that it matters too much as the KTM is already bearing the fruits of DP's development, I read somewhere that the first parts based off his feedback over christmas would be ready for the Jerez test, look where Pol got it last night after the test? Puig was dumb to let him go with all those secrets stacked away in his brain
