Finally back to racing. I've been making due streaming my TDF subscription I left hanging while off on a gravity testing in the midwest humidity and heat.
You'll be happy to know there is gravity in the midwest, not much cell coverage when 20K phones are added, wind, small hills, wildlife, fizzy yellow beer, plenty of gravy, donuts and seriously bad coffee.
I'm also happy it's Mike and not me that will be enjoying the environment at Indy. I've done my time in humidity thank you.
Know how long a shower lasts in Iowa?
An hour if you don't move much. 15 minutes if you attempt to carry anything.

I've been there every year and this year will be no different. Landing Thursday morning.

The Mile is on Friday night this year!

Is this the official thread?

It's only Tuesday.

Summer break sucks for armchair experts.

OK let's see...

MM (He will loose one sooner or later, just not this one)
DP (battles with JLo for the first part of the race while MM disappears, then
consolidates second)
JLo (spent the summer break buying some mojo back, but couldn't afford
all of it)
VR (happy to be on Yamaha till he retires and almost runs JLo down for
third)
AEsP (motivated because of factory Suzuki deal)

After that, anybody's guess.

Or not....

CC to finish outside the points, because now he's on a Honda next year he just doesn't give a shit about the POS TT.

Massive pile up of the top 10 in the new turn 4 and Colin Edwards still won't finish in the points!

It's about time we see some racing. Who the hell invented summer break? GP circus gets enough time off in the winter, why have this torturous summer break?

The more things change the more they stay the same.

Still dissing the Duc...

I'm kinda hoping for some rain showers during the race, and some pit stops to change bikes, marquez will still win, but at least somebody else may lead for a while!!
