holy shit! never watched moto gp, but this is just sensational!
Flag to Flag races where they swap bikes because of rain are completely nuts. Le Mans also had a lot of drama because of it this year too (Marc crashed leading in the rain).
Unfortunately the subscription is a couple pretty pennies (and the times suck for me to watch most of the races live) but most races these days are just awesome at how close these guys are and the coverage is excellent.
I was 0.037s from guess the pole time. Man, that Tissot with Martin Sig would have been a hell of a gem.
@exage03040 Impressive feat by #93, for some reason he's always been completely dialed in at this track, regardless of any other circumstances.
Also impressive showing by #41. Although he finished in the usual spot, the fact that he did so well in Q and at the start is promising for the bike development. They have the speed for a podium, just need to maintain it for the entire race.
@exage03040 That new chassis is why I mentioned Pedrosa. I’ve got to believe that his testing has had a huge impact. Did you see all the attention he was getting from Oliveira and the rest of the team? Petrucci is a really good guy and seems well-liked in the paddock but I think his time has passed. He may be fast enough and bright enough to be a test rider but I don’t think he’s got the goods to operate at the pointy end of the field on race day.
Every class had at least 1 rider demoted due to exceeding track limits on the last lap on the same corner. Felt bad for Joe Roberts getting booted off the podium in Moto 2. Maybe they need an extra dab of white paint at the exit of that corner (don’t remember which corner #).
@exage03040 Welp at least Rossi is on the right side of the top 10 again.... Was beginning to think he lost it... Wait and see what he does tomorrow I guess
Anyways guess I'd better go find me the high lights to watch now
