KTM still racing this weekend?

Well if the KTM is still racing this weekend at Valencia I will be watching it as closely as possible.
if I recall Valencia is a midsize track. Thinking the KTM and the Aprilia might be running wheel to wheel this weekend. The Aprilia winning through the corners and the KTM passing the Aprilia down the straits.
If the KTM is faster down the straits than the Suzuki right out of the box It will be a big embarrassment for Suzuki.

Yes Paul, KTM is there.
I don't think Suzuki does or will have anything to be embarrassed about, Aprilia on the other hand has several.

I am also really curious about the performance of the KTM this weekend.
Jake (Paul?) watch the Michelin Press Conference if you have access:

Dorna does not offer video pass in USA? I remember watching MotoGP while in Berkeley California, but it was through a friends subscription package(lots of sports). I can not recall exactly what it was.

I will go and check the forum.
KTM races with Mika Kallio during the weekend.

Ironically Suzuki(schwantz time) was always down on power. When KTM got into Motogp selling V-4 engines (990s) they where known for having powerfull engines . Now Both amnufactures are back and it looks like the same situation is happening again .

Hell I still cant understand how Illmore or other F1 teams with there enormous (like 10 times) budgets cant tap into there tech and develop a Motogp bike that blows all the current Motogp bikes away.


Number 2 I live outside phila. same situation bein covers both MotoGP Moto2 Moto3 (only MotoGP at beginning of this season ) and Got WSBK but only 2-3 races aired in WSS this year . Same for you ?

NESCA IMHO Michelin had it tough this year being it was there 1st year AND having to deal with so many rain/patchy rain races. I cant remember so many rain races since??? 1986???

Jake in Spain GP coverage is on a different level.
Lorenzo can not even properly test for Ducati, only 2 days in Valencia and then at the end of January in Sepang. Race? Are they on drugs?
Gigi knows well the riding style of Lorenzo from the Aprilia days, so they say the bike will be adjusted accordingly beforehand.

Alaska would do me good right now Jake.
It is a shame that I can not post personal stuff(legalities...).
The photos are a small contribution. This forum is what it is because of the technical stuff/support and background (hard)work of some very knowledgeable members.
