If I had mentioned in 2019 that KTM would be winning races in 2020 I would have been laughed at , but they are becoming regular podium finishers . Yes , there is the luck factor , and as their bikes have improved so they have become luckier . Good for them  :thumleft:

"Only Yamaha has won more races since the start of 2020, with KTMís five victories equalling Ducatiís win rate and bettering that of Aprilia, Honda and Suzuki."


This while Yamaha is battling too......


The lady doth protest too much, methinks  ???
 ... and Yamahaha I predict will continue to battle ... for some while yet.



While reeling in the titles. O0

Indeed.  As indicated by their three titles in the past 10 years.  Man alive, they may even make it 4 out of 11 this year.   >:D

Honda 7/11, Yamaha 3/11, Suzuki 1/7.  KTM 0/4   >:D

I wonder how many Yamaha won in their first 4 years?  Perhaps one of us should check?  Perhaps they went from 1961 to 1975 before a win?

But hey!  Stop arguing with me.  I am a huge Yamaha fan.  I love Yamaha.  I hate pulling them down to prove you wrong.  Go eat a muffin, or something.  Good ones available in Webbervalley Road......

Ja, hulle het die hele 1962 gebruik om al die gebreekte bikes van 1961 reg te maak sodat hulle weer in 1963 kon deelneem!   :lol8:

Yes, he was and as we know FP results, especially 1 and 2 are often not a reflection of what is to come.  Their only value for us is interest.

That was pretty crazy and I think the "placement" of that crash was very lucky. Any other place where there was not 5 rugby fields worth of lovely green grass to navigate and he could have been very seriously hurt.

And lucky as he ended up barrel rolling back onto the track where he could have become a rumble strip.
