I'd love to see Rossi win, but has he ever won at Le Mans? It doesn't seem like his circuit. Marquez, Pedrosa, and Lorenzo have all won there.

Moto3 Alexis Masbou has already won a race, Fabio Quatararo better win one soon to keep the hype machine going.

Moto2 Zarco is doing OK but once Rabat finds that robot rythym again it's all over.

MotoGP the possibility of any frogs jumping to the front is nil.
Marquee gets down to the business of returning to the top of the heap.
9fingers tries like hell to stay with him but gets passed late by Crazy Joe.

last year MM had 100 points after Jerez... Now he's got 56. There are other contenders this year.

Don't remember the year, but Rossi won starting from pit lane, in the rain, at LeMans.

?no?

I stand corrected: he won in 2005, in the rain. Thank you, Wikipedia.

Ten years ago, though.

Nevertheless, I'd love to see Rossi win.

It would be fantastic to have a new, first time winner. As long as its not CC. When was the last new winner besides MM? Spies?

It would be great. We'd finally have a new alien. I'd say the best chance for that to happen this season is Cal though. He is certainly the best of the rest in my mind. Granted for him to get the win there would need to be some substantial circumstances. Likely involving some factory riders taking each other out, a helmet issue, and some faulty electronics. If all of those things happen in the same race, NOT to Cal, he can win.

EDIT: Spies won in 2011. Before that Dovi won in 2009 on the Honda.
