    MotoGP 2024

    With only 2 days until the new year, and just over 2 months until the season starts it's time for a new thread.

    Who's your money on?

    Will Bagnia do the triple?
    Will Marc return to former glory and bring us a season in which he dominates?
    Will Martin secure his dream to win a championship?
    Will the new 'wunderkid' Acosta upset the apple cart and show us the new future of MotoGP?
    Will Aleix throw his toys out of the cot again?
    Will Jack be able to maintain his pace for an entire race?
    Will the Beast find his footing at Ducati finally?
    Will Honda have any chance of winning more than 1 or 2 races?
    Will Marco's talent earn VR46 their first championship as a team?
    Who will survive the rigorous demands of over 40 races and not succumb to injury?

    So many questions, this season is going to be a doozy.

    MM, love him or hate him will get there., I feel he deserves it after all he has been through.


    . . . Then I'll go back to hating him, just you watch.
    Don't you look at my accountant.
    He's the only one I've got.

    The anticipation level is rising and it isn't all about MM. "The next MM" is playing with the big kids now. Apropos of which the "Oxley Bom Moto GP podcast" of 23 December has an interview with Kiwi Paul Trevathan, crew chief for Pedro Acosta next season. Interesting if you have a lazy hour or so.

    Oooooo I forgot to include him in my questions, despite listening to that podcast as well!

    I was waiting for someone to start a 2024 thread.

    Be an interesting season

    Will Franco step up, will MM do what everyone thinks he might, will Honda fix the bike, will Marini make the grade, will Fabio Di keep on the up, will JM ride more with his head and challenge, will Enea keep his team spot, will Acosta and MM crash into each other (there is trouble there) and will Bagnia keep his head and win another.

    Plus a hundred more questions!!

    With all the rider moves I guess I am going to have to resub to MotoGP there is really nowhere else you can watch on demand
    On a Motorcycle you're penetrating distance, right along with the machine!! In a car you're just a spectator, the windshields like a TV!!

    'Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out! Shouting, ' Holy sh!t... What a Ride!! '

    Pretty intriguing season ahead folks. First and foremost, where the fuck will we be watching it on? Lets hope TVNZ keep it this year, I'd rather save that coin.

    Aside from this, we've got a fair few question marks:

    - How long will MM be able to win on a year old bike? (there's no doubt he'll win, just not the championship, don't be silly you lot). History tells us the year old bike is pretty damn good till they get the new one dialled.
    - Will Rins be able to do some magic on the Yamaha?
    - Will Franco be able to do some magic on the Ducati?
    - Olivera on a factory spec bike, if he stays uninjured he's a huge threat.
    - Who out of Vinales, Rins or Miller will be the first to get the triple?
    - Will Binder get the tools to put together a title challenge, or is the Ducati too good?
    - Will Mir finish a race?
    - Who will win the title between Bags and Martin?

    Or

    Will Acosta get on the bike, fucking smoke the whole field and we all start gushing over him even more. The last time we had a rider as promising as him entering Motogp was Joan Mir and he got himself a title, albeit an odd one.

    There was a video circulating FB with a recent interview with him, fucking sad to watch, he just came across cooked. His old man was pretty tough on him, Matt Mladin posted some background on his situation.

    He popped up and on my feed a little while back vids of racing. Thought it was pretty random, but I guess that's why.

    And again. Thank you.

    I'm starting to go back through the Oxley Bom motogp podcasts.

    Search them out. I use podcast addict app. Bur Spotify etc snd just search. Excellent if tired, can't sleep or whatever.
    Probably good in the garage too. But too busy listening to Caroline Spine or Days if the New, alternatively, of I'm working on the Stinger ahead appropriate Supertramp.

    The title of that pod cast is interesting. Previously podcasts with 'MotoGP' in the title were threatened with legal action by Dorna's lawyers and had to remove it, even though they were promoting the product. It's possible two long serving paddock personalities had access to the right people?

    Here's a fun fact for you older generation. I'm a millennial and I've never once in my life listened to a podcast lol.

    Must be time I got onboard
