I got no idea. Since MM has already sunk the 8 ball I reckon he won't be turning it up too much, kinda like Sepang. I mean ... he got beat by a YAMAHA ffs! A Yamaha!

I'll be more interested in Moto3 anyhow .... I keep cheering on Tatsaki Suzuki. He's proved he can hang up front, now if he can just nail down his use of strategy and end up in front when the proper flag is waved.

It seems as though KTM is getting their shit in one bag in Moto2 ... took 'em all season but hey, better late than never.

? :giggle:

Ah, right. Valencia. The traditional last race of the season.

I got Zarco for a top 5.

someone fucked up his front tyre pressure. probably the same person who checks rossi's rear tyres.
Probably the same fool that was checking Tom Brady's footballs.

I'm sure there will be plenty of tears shed .... some from Jorge himself. His fans will be happy to see him, and sad to see the end of an era. I really feel for the guy .... must be a total bitch to retire out due to injuries. At the same time, I'm proud of his accomplishments .... 5 titles in world class motorcycle racing. There are only a small handful of people that even participate at that level, let alone become world champions. I think that gets taken for granted by a lot of armchair experts.

I see nothing remotely sad about it, the man's had a fantastically successful career and is walking away in one piece ready for life's next challenge.

Some will see it as a bittersweet moment ... glad to see him taking a smart path to protect his body ... and at the same time lament his absence from the sport as a racer.

He's had his time in the sun, which is a lot more than most get.
