Check out Brno last year. Dani Pedrosa can fight for victory, if needed. And JLo used to make some moves a lot like Marquez (good AND bad!) in the smaller classes. Now he's mr. Smooth, because it's fast on these bikes. But he won't tolerate it, if a rookie tries to spank him again, true he got a bit caught out in Jerez, but will be better prepared next time.
