Latest rumour:

It was reported that a South African with the cryptic name OD51 contacted Lin Jarvis and offered to ride the Yamaha M1 in 2020.  It cannot be proven at this stage, but apparently Jarvis accepted his offer and the factory is working hard to detune the 2020 M1 to have 35kw.   :ricky:
As long as they add the two pods I he asked for. Fransesca already has pods mos.

Spy pics available of the OD51 factory Yamaha!  Check it out before Jarvis finds it and deletes all!

I read Rossi has gotten engaged :eek7: :eek7: :eek7:

https://www.famousfix.com/topic/valentino-rossi-and-francesca-sofia-novello

Ah!!  It eplains him becoming so slow the last few years.  And Yamaha got all the blame, it should have been Francesca!

Ja maar dit is Yamaha se skuld dat Franceska makliker is om te ry as `n M1? :peepwall:
Ek weet darem nie... maar ek sal altwee moet ry dan sal ek vir jou terugvoer gee. :ricky:

Rossi EN Francesca?? :eek7: :eek7: :eek7:

The message seems to have been lost in translation.  It seems they are converting Francesca to have her pods coming out the sides!   :lol8:

But then Rossi can only ride her standing up. :eek7: And it won't be on any beach, there's sand there.

Just seen something posted by Ridefast Magazine where they say it is reported that Andrea Iannone's B Sample has also failed with "moderate" usage of drostanolone. He now faces a 4 year ban from any FIM event.

Bradley Smith tipped to get a full time ride now.

What a bummer for Ianone.  4 years out now is as good as permanent retirement.  Also it seems Aprilia is on the verge of launching a brand new, completely redesigned and build MotoGP bike.  It seems Bradley Smith is the front runner for the ride, but in the dark shadows there is a small rumour about Karl Abraham.

Looks like its going to go through the whole process.

I must admit, I feel for the guy.  Perhaps I am naive, but I cannot see a MotoGP rider use any drug that will make him heavier.  He has worked very hard, under difficult times for Aprilia and it would be an absolute shame if he loses the opportunity to ride the new Aprilia.

Tru dat! Just Googled drostanolone, seems it was developed for breast cancer but never marketed. I cannot see that it will give him any advantage at all.

Will the 2020 MotoGP season become known as the BATTLE OF THE OMIES?

Imagine seeing Oom Max and Oom Valentino on the track at the same time!   One gets in the others way and it is walking sticks at dawn!   :lol8:

Maybe he thinks drostanolone will help him keep abreast..... :peepwall:

It seems the aerodynamics of a MotoGP bike is still keeping the governing body awake at night.

While a holeshot device of sorts is keeping the Yamaha guys busy.
