Re: Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya - Circuit de Barc

If Pol & Aleix are both in the presser it has me thinking they both have a "statement" to make in regards 2017 seats?? I might be totally off track with that. The race, hard for me to go past Lorenzo. But, Marquez & Rossi?? maybe a Ducati on the podium and/or a Suzuki. After the engine failure at Mu...

Re: Silly Season 2016....

Smith & Espargaro back together in a different team/manufacturer, who'd have thunk it. My wife watches the bold & beautiful, I tell her this show has nothing on motogp rider contracts/silly season.

Re: Silly Season 2016....

My next query is Zarco, according to the man himself he has signed for the 8hr with SUZUKI?? & testing the gsx-rr, how much testing I do not know & I do not know what comes after this. Does Zarco go onto a Factory Suzi, that only leaves one spot?? Is Aleix moving?? Will Dani take a Suzi seat?? What ...

Re: Verschlimmbesserung

You'd think, well I do, that an organisation such as HRC would be all over this from the beginning of 2015. Seems I'm wrong and now 2 of the best riders on the planet are having to do double time to get this thing going. Anyhow, I hope Dani ends up on a bike that will keep him competitive(even a WC)...

And, as others have mentioned on this site previously(not in this thread), Bradley Smith could have a good career as a commentator.

Re: 2016 Monster Energy Grand Prix de France

My humble opinion I think the track surface, weather conditions & thirdly the tyres/tires will have the say on who wins. Get the combo right, you might get a podium or the gold. Get the combo wrong, could be a different story. It's all speculation right now. The Honda's struggling has been mentioned...

Re: Silly Season 2016....

Agreed, it will take some extra motivation for Dani to change manufacturers. IMO, Dani is possibly willing to take anything on that does not include an rc213v( maybe i'm wrong). THe GSX-RR from what I've seen so far may quite suit the riding style of PEDRO, of course this is pure speculation. A litt...

Re: 2016 Monster Energy Grand Prix de France

Suzuki for a podium as Fred mentioned. MV continues to improve & Aleix finally had some hard work pay off for him at Jerez. The straight is not long, 670mtrs?? 5 left turns 9 right turns.

This could be one for us Suzuki nuts.

Who will win?? I have no idea.

No idea what the problem Smith is having?? Focused on the KTM for next year, tyres?? I don't know but after fp2 he was sitting around 15th I think. Not the spot Herve would want one of his riders in. The bike and Smith look all wrong at the moment, not linking turns therefore failing to capitalise t...

More surprising however, was them more or less saying Aleix is safe as houses with his ride as Suzuki, a new team, don't want to chuck 2 new riders with no Suzuki experience on board...
