MotoGP Le Mans (Spoiler)

Nice fiery qualifying... Zarco putting it down, won't be surprised when that kid replaces Dani soon, or VR if he retires. George in the back again...behind Jonas F*#king Folger!!!
I Think that if no mistakes are made it might be Yamaha 1 2 3 in the starting order, but maybe Zarco and Rossi with have another nice get together... wildcards being MM and Crashy.
I might go ahead and wake up for this live...
Nice one on KTM having both bikes grid in the top 10. Suzuki? ..maybe next time Ed :l

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Anyone else see Jack Miller's exit stage right at the very fast turn one?

Sacré bleu!!!!!! (French for holy shit!)

He walked / limped away.
The bike had to be carried back to the pits.

Video:

Incredibly lucky escape.

These guys have big balls, to even think about coming back out for final qualifying.
I hope that he can learn to ride to the edge, rather than over it. Makes one wonder what a season or two in Moto 2 would have done for his consistency. Can't help but think that the step straight into Moto GP was just a little too big.

Marquez is fighting his Honda RV216? every lap. When is Honda going to return to building a bike that is tailored to marquez unique extreme slide/square off corner style? Yes it is costly to
develop a one off Motogp bike that is different than any one elses Honda on the grid but Marquez speed/talent would pay off the added expense with wins and world titles.
I cant remember the last time I have seen Marquez enter a corner on his front tire with his rear tire in the air and marquez kicking rear out to turn . That's when you know Marquez is in the groove and the fastest bike on the track. Now priority one during ualifying seems to be staying upright and hoping to get on front row,

Saw that Dave, scary crash, like riding an unguided missile into a wall.

Wow. Moto 3 Race lap two what an incident! A lot of lucky riders!

Saw the Miller incident live....Yikes. Unbelievable he is OK. Q2 was very entertaining! Zarco. What can you say

And that Moto3 debacle in lap 2....OMG !!! How everyone escaped injury there is a testament to the safety gear now available.

As for the MotoGP race...Dani seems to have found the pace this year, and an aggressive move or 2 to get up near the front from 13th on the grid. I'm impressed.

Gutted for Rossi, and for that young Rossi fan in the stands (did your feed show that). He was heart breaking to watch. I think he was more upset than Rossi was.

Was a great race, and good on ya Zarco in your home GP.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

you could tell Rossi was giving it his all after that run wide. A little too much throttle on the edge of the tire. I thought he had it.

It looked to me like Rossi decked the hard parts on the right side of the bike and the rear lifted. The GOAT is trying hard!
