    The class showed through Great Ride Pecco and an entertaining season.

    JM overrode to many fuckups this race

    Hope Diggia gets a job at Vr46 he is on fire. I think his engine was just holding together.

    The Marshels need a rocket up their arse with the Binder loose a position cock up.

    Oh Jack Not good mate.

    Vinales going backwards again

    Not sure why Taka keeps getting contracts

    So many crashes hope MM is ok.

    Good enjoyable season lets see how much MotoGP tries to sting us for next year

    We have quite a few swaps to see how the riders go on different bikes

    pretty sure 49 was smoking from the right hand side for most of the race. I wonder if that contributed to some of the crashes.I thought i saw home look down right at the finish?

    Diggia was docked a place due to tyre pressure - Binder gets 3rd.

    Latest update showing MM in 3rd in testing, behind his brother in first and BB in second. Too early to read anything into it but at least it's a decent start.

    Ended up third and 2nd fastest Duc behind Bezz.
    Looking smooth and happy, according to the reports. I doubt he has come close to wringing its neck yet.

    Only watched it last night.

    Was going to say, JM tried to knobable the 2024 champion as his last act, when it became obvious he couldn't do anything about the 2023 champion.

    Firstly sorry for the lack of contribution this season from yours truly. I still love you all.

    I'll give the season my sum up and my thoughts for next year for those that cbf to read it.

    This season:
    Ducati miles ahead from sharing data, the other teams need to pay attention and do the same to bridge the gap

    Ktm, fucking good bike, just against 8 great bikes

    Aprilia. Jack of all trades, still needs some battle ammunition like late braking
    Yamaha, LOL
    Honsa, extra LOL with Lol on top..

    Next season predictions:
    DUCATI:
    MM to fuck them up for the first 1/4 of the year till the GP14 gits gud, then he's in trouble
    Morb to win 2 races
    Digia to smoke AM most rounds
    Aprilia: not a lot, I love Aleix but no chance of tbe decent result imo.
    Yamaha, Rins to win at COTA
    KTM to do bad bad things with Acosta

    Well I didn't realise that I missed you, almost as if I'd not noticed. Until now. When I feel a welling up of emotions running over and a longing , almost emptiness, in my heart ❤️.

    Actually a good summary.

    Yes, MM was looking very, very smooth. And he was riding only 2 days after a nasty high side and would of been badly bruised for sure.
    The other Ducati riders were looking at his data and asking how the hell he was taking turn 8 without appearing to brake for it!
    Wait until he gets to know the bike better and starts exploiting it's strengths and over riding it's weaknesses as only he currently can do.

    Though something tells me MM better hurry up and get that Rossi equaling world championship under his belt before alien in waiting Acosta gets busy......





    Acosta "backing it in" in his first ride on a motogp bike!

    Yep, for sure. Be great if he could get 2 - beating Rossi I think, would be his goal lol

    As we know the Ducati riders all share data. Apparently the other Ducati riders were all keen to check MM's data. He took it easy, but even so he was fastest Ducati through one of the turns.

    He's been under the knife again, this time for arm pump surgery. His arms must be all scar tissue.

    The "Oxley Bom MotoGP podcast" is worth a listen.
