*Spoilers* MotoGP - Valencia

What a weekend that was for KTM

Moto3, KTM won with a 15 year & 115 day young kid in his very first race ever in moto3 class. Amazing performance.

Moto2, KTM won with Oliveira

MotoGP, KTM 3rd with Pol Espargero in a crazy rain race.

Definitely KTMs weekend. Awesome for them. Thoroughly enjoyed 2 MotoGP races for the price of 1. Can't believe I'm even saying this but I felt a tiny smidge bad for 46 in the first race. Reeling everyone in and the rain ruins everything. He likely could have won. 93 made a stupid tire choice and looked like he was ice racing, probably best to get that shoulder fixed ASAP. Will be excited to see the new bikes later on this week.

Totally agree. Will be a great couple of days. We get it televised in UK on pay TV., but those with Dorna's Video Pass should get it also.

This is what it was like today. Crash, crash, rain, rain, rain, red flag bc of rain, crash, crash, crash. Half the crowd left when they stopped the race. With four races in Spain, they take it for granted. My wife still had a great time, until Rossi crashed.

To be completely honest. I'd step up and leave aswell when red flag was waved.
We all seen what happened in Silverstone. Yes this wasnt the same situation but still, be ahead of the traffic jam.

Rins and the Suzuki are going to be in the fight for the championship next year.

Way to go KTM..... lots of back stories in this race, Sayonara Dani, I hope you can contribute to more KTM successes next year.

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

Brilliant 3rd to Pol on the KTM, after dropping his bike while in a 3rd place battle with Marc, then to get up, cut his way back through the field was awesome, and the celebrations from his pit crew were great to see. Adios Pedro, enjoy your time at KTM, they are a team on the rise, Zarco and Pol, should make for a competitive team.

Huh? that's the 'big call' of the year! Time to consider some medication Mr esq'z me!!

Certainly one of the improvers of this year, but I'd see Rins and Mir hovering around 5th and 6th. The two Hondas will be at the top, Yamaha (with its act together over winter) will be fighting with Ducatis (both factory & Pramac) which leaves Suzuki battling with Crutchlow (Honda) and the Zarco/P.Esparago combination on KTM.

Remember, you heard it here first!

Suzuki's concessions are now gone too. Will be that much harder for them.
