That track is awful. Suspension is getting a full work out.
It would seem Yamaha have finally started to turn the big blue ship around. Grandpa46 seems to be building some serious momentum. With Dovi screwing the pooch in Q1, not sure he will be around to fight for second. Miller is leading the Duc charge this weekend, so good luck to him! Helleva effort from Bagnia too.
Dovi has never done particularly well here. Last year I think he finished 8th or 9th. The way everyone else is running he should be super happy to equal that again this year.
The king of qually has to be Pol Esparago though! P5 on the KTM! Lots of very fast riders on faster bikes behind him! Glad to see him and his crew so excited! They acted like they had got pole (which is equivalent to what they did with that bike).
Excited to see Rossi and Miller take it to MM early tomorrow. I doing CC will try to mess it up with MM when his checks comes from LCR.
Funny to see that the much beloved Carbon swingarm may be the cause of the chain coming off the sprocket for Lorenzo today and MM last week. Wonder if Cal is gonna give his back? Lol
I personally think that Hopper was horrible as a commentator. He likes too talk a lot, say "exactly" every time he starts dialogue, and compared every on track situation to "back when he was racing". I much prefer Colin.
Frankly I'm surprised at Lorenzo's run into Q2, I thought he was just going to phone this weekend in based on his body language in P4. I do wonder what he was thinking when MM passed him on the first flying lap in Q2, maybe not jump out in front of him at a track that suits him like this one does.
I think it was a plan to get the Hondas out early in Q2 then to get Lorenzo behind MM so that it would be difficult for anyone else to tag MM.
Regardless, it should be a great race tomorrow Cal and VR46 are a bit off MM's pace but come tomorrow with full tanks it could be very close, good to see 99 starting to put together a few fast laps on the Honda, many said that would not happen until later in the season.
Lorenzo is not going to do anything noteworthy tomorrow. I think he is still recovering and he is his usual headcase.

Very likely this.
I think it is MM's race to lose. I will pick Rossi for the podium and I think also Miller. I am slowly starting to like Rossi. Last week I uncharacteristically pulled for him to take it to Dovi. Screaming at the TV pulling for him, which surprised me. I really would like to see him on the podium again.
His riding style these days is very nice to watch - smooth, and precise. He makes a lot of other riders look a bit rough by comparison
O no ..... compared to Justice League's Kal-El, old man still a young guy.
We had a good get together with about a dozen old friends out at Treaty Oak, the ride out there and back was the windiest we've ever experienced 2 up.
Dawn, the wind is going down a bit, temp not quite 8° (just over 45 Farmer degrees), a beautiful prolouge to my first Pedrosa-free MotoGP.
I woke up at 6AM like an idiot to turn on the race...these CET races ar so common that when we have a USA one I realize I don't have to be up so early. Guess I'll go for a ride :)
You miss the little fella?
Number of people I have heard say "I wish Honda had kept Pedrosa" = 0.
