    Yeah, they did that to me as well. I'm broke as a joke right now and really didn't need an unexpected expense like that. Not exactly a priority.

    I contacted them and they said they sent a reminder on November 8th. I searched my mailboxes and found nothing of the sort. Guess what? They refunded my payment, no problem. :)

    As was said earlier, Zarco is probably on everybody's short list. Perrier doesn't know who else he's talking to and Zarco will play it to the hilt.

    Hmm, my account was charged 139.99 Euro, or $168.83. I know this from reviewing the PayPal account information. But. I expect that includes the off season as well at $29.13, 24.99 Euro.

    Yep. That's a DNF for pretty much any one else.

    That picture is kinda goofy. They've got their hands up like they're ballroom dancing or something...

    I thought this was interesting:

    "I'm quite honest: Márquez is such an unique talent, in a league of his own. If he wins, it is Márquez. If he loses, my motorcycle is to blame. Moreover, such a signing would be counterproductive to our junior program, which we have built so carefully."

    Perfectly stated thank you. I am 59 and have been a MotoGP race fan for decades and will miss his perspective and commentary. Yes and charm. How he could still get so excited watching the racing action after so many years means he has always been a true fan. Am also saddened that Dylan Gray is leaving. I'm still upset Gavin Emmett left though maybe it was due to Nick's mistakes. I guess I'm just a sentimental old fuck. MotoGP needs to continually attract a younger audience so I respect Nick's choice to leave and the others here's rejoicing in it. Getting old sucks, kids.

    Well said.
    I was actually a little disappointed he wasn't given some kind of 'acknowledgment', or farewell at the awards evening.
    He's been in the circus for quite a while after all. 312 GPs in fact.
