Re: Grande Prémio 888 de Portugal - Rd 3

i think the other 3 Honda riders crashed. Got to be pretty demoralising, MM comes back, 9 months off, riding one handed on somebody's else's setup and in 3 or 4 laps he's faster than them.

Re: Silly Season

I read on a couple sites the other evening Cal's manager has been shopping him around for 2021. One said he had told all the teams he was available.

Re: Silly Season

So assume Alex Marquez to LCR so Crutchlow will be out of a job 2021, nowhere for him to go.

looks like Petrucci thinks the Espargaro rumors have some credibility.

Re: Moto GP schedual and the corona virus...

In answer to your question in the first paragraph, no I don't because I wasn't making reference to the situation in Iran. Obviously given what your friend describes the situation there is bugger all like what I'm referring to back in the majority of Western Europe. For too long the west has meddled...

Re: Silly Season

So does Rossi if he stays get a third bike on the factory team leaving a bike open at Petronas. That would be a good ride for someone. No, Rossi would be in the Petronas team with factory support, factory teams are only allowed to field 2 bikes. It is interesting that Rossi had already said at the ...

Re: Silly Season

HRC's cunning is next to none. They have given Marc the only single teammate on the world who'd encourage him to develop a bike mortals can race. Touché. edit: I have shamelessly stolen this from twitter. No brotherly love here. https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/934577/1/marquez-i-want-fastest-bike...
