    Oooops. :shog My bad. I suspect I am zeroing in on the circuit where I actually want them to be racing in Italy. Not a big Misano fan myself for the big bikes.

    Was thinking the same. Starts strong and goes backwards from there nearly every race. As much as I want to see him win a championship or even some races I just can't see it happening. I struggle to see how he got the factory ride with so many other good riders around to be honest....yes I'm frustrated:lol3:lol3

    If you really want to struggle, can you explain how Bradley Smith gets a ride ?

    Smith is their development rider and is filling in for Iannone like Bradl is for Honda. If Iannone is out for 18 months I would imagine they would get another rider.
    I would say Rabat will be out next year. Poor bastard never got over his accident.

    REMY Gardner has signed with the AJO KTM RED BULL Moto2 team for 2021.
    with the latest bike and one of the best teams in the paddock and a pathway to MotoGP hopefully we will see him on the podium a lot 2021.

    Darryn Binder signs with the Petronas Sprinta Moto3 team for 2021. Maybe their Moto2 team for 2022 - an odd move given his size.

    ′′ I have Parkinson's, but I don't give up anything ′′
    Pierfrancesco Chili:
    ′′ The human body is not different from a motorcycle: when the bike vibes too much you go to the mechanic. I vibed too much and went to the doctors. Two reassured me, a third, however, wanted to see us clearer and required me an exam: I have Parkinson's. I've been diagnosed for two years now. It was a good bump, but I'm a pilot and riders stand up as long as they live. I've fallen a lot of times, actually someone thinks that this disease can be the result of those head bumps and a particular head trauma remedied many years ago, but I don't ask myself. It's just like that and we need to look forward. Taking medicines that keep the course going, I can do practically anything and where I can't get help. Last year in March I also rode to Australia to ride a motorcycle with Troy Bayliss: it was fun with these tremors, I vibrated more than the bike, but I won't do it anymore, because it was also dangerous ".

    That's sad, I like Chili. I poked him in the ribs a few years ago at the Festival of Speed when I thought he was one my mates ( looks just like him ). When he looked at me I could see his mind thinking " I must know him but can't remember where from " :lol3:lol3. The mate I was with had a stunned look on his face and said " you know that wasn't Gary don't you". Haha, funny as. I just know to this day he lies in bed at night thinking who was that guy...not:rofl:rofl.

    Our surnames sound similar; when I was still racing, some elderly aunts were convinced it was me in the GPs (it wasn't) even when I was watching TV with them. They'd ask me, "Did you win?"!
