SPOILER! Valencia MOTOGP

Looks like Jorge is on it this weekend. KTM is a brick but fast in a straight line.
I'm calling Jorge for the win on Sunday.

Lap record smashed by 0.6 of a second. Congrats Jorge Lorenzo. Pole position.

This season is done and dusted.
Can't wait for first testing on Monday.
Interesting read on motomatters about the KTM lack of mechanical grip. Hope they can sort it easily and quickly.

I don't know what people expected KTM to do on they're first outing, but I think new Dad Mika is doing a great job, improving by almost a second in every session, and not breaking down. That's actually better than what Suzuki did in their 1st stab in realistic testing.

Jorge is a machine when thing go his way, I think it's going to be hard for him to get away from MM though, and Mavrick seems to have good pace too. Hope it's a good race.

I'm curious to see how the KTM Moto 2 bike will be doing next year, anybody seen it yet ?

Q1 & Q2 Results

Amazing pole lap and pace by Lorenzo. Staggering!
Great effort by Marquez. In camera close-ups one could see how much he was pushing. And generally very enjoyable qualifying. It seems temperature and tires helped riders to up the ante.

To anyone that has access, watch again and again the slow motion shots of Marquez through turn 13. In FP2(hope I remember correctly) especially.
That is pure art! It is godlike!

Hi Nes. I watch and record EVERY practice, qualifying session and race, all year. It's great in HD on Foxtel. I remeber Stoner going around that last bend on the Ducati, it was amazing for the day, MM is a spectacular rider to watch when he's really trying, Lorenzo is so smooth it looks almost boring.

Hi Dons. Yes I agree and remember Stoners style. Lorenzo, as the commentators were saying, one looks at him and thinks he will be 12th or something. But when the time comes in...textbook smooth.
In Spanish Academies they show videos of Lorenzo as a reference to teach how to go fast. Always reminding pupils that there is no "correct" way to go fast on a GP bike(as I'm sure you know) or any bike fast enough to permit a wide range of skills/style applied.
