    Re: Moto GP 2017


    I think Zarco made a good move waiting a year to make the bump. Hopefully the Tech 3 is a stepping stone to something greater...sadly in recent years its been a lateral or step down for most riders. I see a lot of the same style in Zarco as everyone saw in Vinales. But I guess all the MotoGP experts don't.

    That just sounds to me like they don't want to set him up for failure by returning too soon. Not sure if one time out on a bike is enough to judge his potential. Admittedly, crashing a million dollar bike doesn't help.

    You're going to want to google Tito Rabat before you attempt to be smart anymore.

    (he crashed his face off all season last year)

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    You guys watching the Phillip Island test? The KTM sounds amazing and Rossi looks really serious already.

    I'm not his biggest fan but it's one helluva story - Lorenzo looks smooth...like Yamaha M1 smooth on the Ducati. What does it all mean?

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Yea, I got the email saying watch live, last night. Snoozed the email til this morning, and now it's not showing day 1 full session, just highlights. Kinda sucks, since it's 8hrs, and I'm not saying up to watch it in one chunk. When you watched live, was there commentary and interviews like Sepang?

    Yes sir - interviews with the teams and lots of color commentary during live. Looking forward to tonight. PI is such a cool track. 4hrs and 33mins...

    Zarco and Folger are still bringing the heat, kinda crazy to see the Tech 3 bikes going so fast!

    This was the worst execution of coverage on the site in years. If it's going to suck that badly, just post highlight and interview clips the next morning.

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    I had it playing in the background at work last night and it took me like 3-4 times of hearing the same interviews to figure it out....


    Maverick really stuck it to everyone in day 2.

    I know this is quite the speculation...but Rossi posted a photo of his elbow firmly planted on the ground the other day on a very flat curbing. He rarely touched his elbow down as compared to Lorenzo on the Yamaha. I haven't watched any video of him this year, but maybe another adjustment to his riding style? Can't beat em then join em?

    Holy crap, he laid waste to the field in fast lap and pace. Jorge is in deep shit, and Rossi can't be thrilled either.

    I didn't watch last night, date night.

    It's gotta be Marquez vs. Vinales...right? I still can't believe Folgar on a tech3 bike!

    Re: Moto GP 2017

    Tech3 has last years bike, and they don't need to develop it much. This is exactly why testing is misleading. Riders on good bikes from last year are often surprisingly fast while the factories sort through unproven parts. Come race time, though, things usually flip back to normal and the factories rise back to dominance (especially when they hit europe).

    Folger's pace is impressive though, as is Bautista. Hell, even Aleix impressed.

    Vinales looks to be on another level though.

    I'm confident that Marquez will find a way to be competitive. He always does.
