    So basically it's nigh on impossible to draw any conclusions from these much-anticipated tests? Other than that Marquez confirmed that he might put an imprint on the series more or less right away.

    Next time, they should go to Dubai. Or maybe England, at least they'd get proper rain there.

    The teams really need the data that they couldn't get, I'm guessing (and hoping) that Dorna writes off this week and allows them another go before winter.

    Is Dorna permission still needed? I thought that testing was- do whatever you want.

    I believe there is another test before the end of the month also. Not sure if it is an 'official' test. Ducati will be at Jerez in November.

    I think the times put in at the end of the day yesterday are pretty relevant. They were missing Jorge and Vale, but otherwise are interesting.

    About as much as 5 hour energy.
    I thought someone might be interested in it.
    Sorry, I'll keep it all MotoGP in here.

    Pssst. It's the "off season". Wink wink.

    I disagree it has everything to do with MotoGP. It seems like 1/3 of the money or more in MotoGP is from energy drinks.

    I watched "No Ordinary Joe" last night :clap
    You'll need an interpreter sometimes and wish it had subtitles as that's one strong accent and had to rewind a few times.
    I've got a hacked AppleTV and trying to find the live Eurosports channels :deal

    Interesting to see how couple of rookies will adapt. Firstly, Marquez will be awesome at some point, but might suffer early on. In Moto2, he used to test Suter bike privately time and time again. Probably did more laps than any other rider in the class. Now MotoGP tests are limited and he need to learn new powerful bike, complicated electronics and weird Bridgestones. And set them up too. Granted he has professional team and staff behind him but he is facing experienced riders with many years on the bikes and tires.

    Iannone is the Ducati rider to watch. Might be the surprise of the season. He doesn't have knowledge how to ride Japanese MotoGP bikes, therefore he doesn't have to de-learn his old habits and can get to the point with Ducati and adjust to bike's style.

    Last chance for Pedrosa to win the title? 2014 onwards Marquez can be hard to beat, at least on the same bike:deal

    Oh and as talked about before, Nicky is the kind of sports hero the kids should be looking up to, not gun toting thugs hanging wit da bitches in clubs everywhere always in trouble.
