Re: Misano SBK

Misano world circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend.

All three classes. SBK 600s & 300s. Plenty of races!

The "Alien" in green versus the also rans?

Ducati have probably done lots of homework at this track

Re: SHARK Grand Prix de France - rd.5

G'Day Fingernails. I didn't predict Lorenzo Savadori would be this fast. My prediction skills ain't that good. I'm not a talent spotter like Aki Ajo. But I considered him (L.S.32) to be a good rider. Quoting myself from the main site "Rapidness is relative. Compared to some other riders Lorenzo Sava...

Re: Back to back at the same track

After five pairs of back to back races last year, there is no obvious pattern. Except for Pol Espargaro. I have no insight into Sunday's Qatar 2 So an extra weekend of data & experience doesn't make much difference. My predictions look rather tame. Here they are any way. The first 8 finishers to get...

Excellent prediction Roogazza, yes Yamaha wins again.

V.R.46 was duffed up by a KTM. Brad Binder I think, pushed Rossi wide. once the door was opened 5 bikes went through. Kinda ruined Rossi's race.

Thanks for that Mikesbytes, interesting prediction. Three newbies for 2022 and Remy Gardner could be one of them. R.G.87 has the wrong passport of corse!

Another viral disappointment! Round 3 of the New Zealand tiles postponed. Covid 19 again.

Looks like it may go ahead later. The round at Taupo scheduled for the coming weekend may well be effected to.

That's racing.
