MotoGP Spoilers!!! Red Bull ring

Some motorsports fans you guys are. Rossi isn't winning so no one posts anything anymore? Congrats to JL and MM for being awesome. Cal too. It would appear the Yamaha camp is in some serious doodoo.

I hope for JL and MM to crash each other. They turn me away from the sport. Yes Yamaha is in trouble with their bikes. Glad I don't own a M1. They must be crap compared to everything else.

Really nice battle between Jorge and Marc.
The way Jorge rode today and in the previous one.....hats off to him, still learning and adapting. Signs of greatness.
And Cal's performance


Very good battle in Moto 2 for the win. I like the riding style of Oliveira.

Alex Marquez binned it on the last corner ...out of the championship.

Do not agitate the old far..ehm, members. They are sensitive. They can not take it. Let them be in their bitterness. Life is too difficult sometimes... be responsible.


Now, the real question is: Can MM wrap up the championship in Twin Ring Motegi? Just got in a bet with a friend(loser pays 3 track days), he thinks MM will at least need Phillip Island.

If that would be the case than no one except you would open a topic right?

Well done for JL. I like his riding style, but as he the biggest ass in the sport. I will never support this guy just for that.
Not so well done for MM as he could and should beat JL. Why did he become so mellow?

Yamaha should be ashamed of their performance. And the riders focus more on development instead of making themselves so important.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Great Job on Lorenzo, as long as he is ahead of Dovi & Petrucci, it is a double slap in the face of those (Ducati & Dovi) who think he is not the most capable rider they have had since Stoner.

MM93 is looking to be winning with 3 rounds left, putting my money on that...

BUT BUT ROSSI IS THE GOAT & MOTOGP, I have his AGV Pista preseaon helmet so it has to be true!

I was very happy Rossi got 6th considering the way the bike is performing and he is still in second place. Yamaha even apologized to their riders for the crap bikes. Lorenzo rode a terrific race and Marquez maybe showed signs of maturing by not making a bonzai move into the last turn and securing second place.

I was not able to watch the races live, and so just saw them last night.....had to avoid this thread until now.

Great race action .... very exciting. I though at mid-point that Marquez was checking out and it would be a boring finish with Lorenzo's soft tires going away... instead we get a battle with several lead changes going to the finish.

Good on Rossi to come from way back on the grid to finish 6th and a bike that was not up to the level of the competition. The old man is still competitive, but Yamaha seems to have slipped.

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