Word to the wannabe's out there on this forum. ALWAYS let the superman start the MotoGP thread.

It's his job and he knows it. But life happens so sometimes we get a little anxious. Don't take it into your own hands.


I didn't even know there was a Brno thread until a few minutes ago. Let the Yoop handle this

And no sooner said, he crashed out on lap two. Still hoping he can get some good results later on.

Guess DC forgot to dumb it down a little for the slower members. Fail to see what the the big deal it is who starts the thread.

Maybe there's an app for people too lazy to actually read thread titles, or doG forbid, hunt a little. Last I heard this was still an open forum, not comments to a featured columnist.

Perhaps, as Lorenzo's title slips away, Yamaha will have more incentive to introduce the new gearbox (assuming it can be fitted to the existing cases).

This was by all accounts as friendly a track as Yamaha can expect.

My interpretation from JLo's post race interview was "I got the best possible start and rode the bike perfectly and there was no way to win against the Hondas". Have to agree with him. He rode incredibly well but 3rd was all that was possible.

I was almost (ALMOST!) happy when Pedro passed JLo for second, and he got to look ahead at his rookie teammate and realize he is doomed to be the Randy Mamola of this age.

There is a new king.


Wow. My fav move was when he made he was going outside, then cut inside. We need to see that from multiple views.

I look for Yoop's name is all - Brew-no spoilers didn't mean shit to me (Brew-Know would have been cleverer) and I'm not clicking on every inane thread that's started here.

JNRobert is the definition of 'panties in a wad', always has been. Just one of the characters around here. Don't take it personally DC.
