Not saying Zarco left on bad terms, but his career took a dive because of it and now KTM seems to have gotten things right and it is a much more competitive bike. If he had stayed he could have been a title contender this year.

I have a lot of respect for him quitting because he wasn't delivering, but I think it was the bike not him.

It seems a lot of what bothered Zarco is that he wanted to help develop the bike and did not succeed at all.  In fact, it went downhill.  A lot of people dislike him for his decision, but I have some respect for him and as a rider I like his style.  We will hopefully see him on a podium a few times soon.  You do not become Moto2 champ two years in a row if you cannot ride a bike.

I hope Zarco gets the factory Ducati ride, 2 times champ and a real fighter. He really stuffed up his career with the split from KTM, they made huge improvements and he could have been a title contender this year.

I was hoping that Zarco would take over from Pedrosa but Repsol like Spanish riders.

No man!  Their test rider is a German and they have had, Freddie Spencer, Wayne Gardner, Eddie Lawson, Mick Doohan, Casey Stoner, Valentino Rossi and Nickey Hayden as riders.

Spencer , Gardner and Lawson all raced under Rothmans Honda , they changed across to Repsol when Doohan was riding for them .

True, my bad.  Dovi, not on my list, raced under Repsol colours.

End of FP2, all 4 KTM's in the top 9, Pol in 3rd, BB33 in 8th and the 2 satellite Yammies taking the top 2 spots. I'm hoping for an exciting race!!

Rossi is looking racy.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

His former (one of his many former) girlfriends were much better looking than the above one.

Elisabetta Canalis. George Clooney slipped up here.

 Legend. He had a hole drilled in the chinpiece of his helmet so he could have a gwaai in the pits without removing it (he died of cancer of the oesophagus and stomach).  8)

After Barry's death, in an interview, KR sr. said; "Perhaps Bazza should not have drilled that hole in his helmet"

The two never saw eye to eye, but Kenny did say that historic racing, of which Barry has been a large part, will never b the same with Sheene gone. :'(
