Dean must be in his cups a little. Jeepers!
Dean sez - "I don't have grandchildren, but I hope one day that I will. I have a feeling that when that day comes--some years from now--maybe I'll show them a picture printed on a piece of paper or displayed on an electronic device, an image of a young Spanish rider taken in 2013. "That's Marc Marquez, one of the all time greats in racing," I might say to the tots. "I was one of the few who saw him ride for the very first time in America. It was incredible."

Yeah, he's doing a little one-handed typing again. At least he found a replacement for Casey and Ben in his life.

I've sent a couple of messages to Julian Ryder, FWIW, that he needs to get off that dumbass site and put his Ryder Notes elsewhere. I hate providing Adams with any traffic.

Nicky and Ben must feel as though they're riding slugs compared to the GP bikes.
But they gotta learn the track somehow.............
(yeah yeah....we all know the Duc GP bikes are crap)

Suggesting he look at MotoMatters as a more viable outlet!

Wonder if the Duc boyz are gonna swap in those cast aluminum subframes on their GP rides now that they have felt all the feedback they provide...

Additionally I was an invited guest of the LCR Honda team.

While there, CotA security informed me that CotA management requested I leave the track immediately and was not welcomed at the circuit. CotA's security force also accused me of criminal trespass and warned I would be arrested the next time I entered the track.

This comes as a tremendous disappointment to Honda, Blake Young, and myself. Especially because I am single-handedly responsible for bringing MotoGP to Texas and for the initial design of the facility to accommodate MotoGP racing."

I haven't researched the matter enough to give an opinion, but I'm sure Kevin realized this was a likely outcome when he went forward with litigation.

In the first place, its a semi-public facility, and in the second its a horrible tiny-minded PR faux pas. What's he going to do - leave with the grandstands in his back pocket?

Not sure that one Texan dissing another can be unseemly ... but that was unseemly.

There is only one rule in Formula One: Bernie always wins.

I agree it is not a good PR move, just saying it is reality. Especially given the history of the group that runs CotA.
