I don't know if it is old news, but KTM has been allowed to enter a bike for the last race of the season at Valencia
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

Marc Marquez could actually top Rossi's 9 world titles.

he's going to re-write the history books.



This is where we are now; Giacomo Agostini......8 titles.
                                       Rossi.......................7
                                       Mick Doohan.............5
                                       Geoff Duke...............4
                                       John Surtees.............4
                                       Mike Hailwood            4
                                       Eddie Lawson            4
                                       Kenny Roberts[snr]     3
                                       Wayne Rainey             3
                                       Jorge Lorenzo              3
                                       Marc Marquez              3
NB...this is counting only the 500cc/MotoGP premier class world titles.

Look I recon Marques is the next Rossi plus some when it comes to racing a bike....he has natural talent like no-one before. He is only 23 and would be able to brake all the records without taking a sweat. I like seeing him racing!

I have no doubt that MM93, or even another rider if he doesn't, will eventually break all the existing records, even those of VR46 and that is not a bad thing.  Records are meant to be broken.

The one thing that Rossi did do, that no one else can, or will in future be able to claim though, is that he was champion over an  era of huge change.  Two stroke to four.  990, 800, 1000, etc.  He probably had to adapt more than most.   Also, just like Agostini and others, his name will always be held in high regard.

Having looked at sundays race I found it very odd that Loranzo lost his backwheel. Riders like him should not be losing a backwheel because he opened up too hard/soon.
Frontwheel is a bit different though.

Iannone moved to them.

Not sure if Aleix Espargaro has been kept around either?

I'm not exactly sure of the points standing, but VR is probably going to achieve 2nd place in 2016 MotoGP championship for the second successive year...well done "öld man"  :deal: not many 37 year old will in future be able to claim that!  :thumleft:

 Next year promises exiting new riders, rider changes and the prowess of the Suzuki's and off course Saffers interest  :3some: in Moto2 with Brad Binder...  :pot:

Strange Moto3 race, with so many riders, including BiB, crashing at the same place. Something on the track, or just bad luck, or new tar? Brad seemed a bit miffed, I like that he got back to the pits, got  the bike repaired and went out again  :thumleft:

I agree, very weird.
Also agree, Brad getting back onto track shows character.
