Like him or leave him, the guy draws a crowd. One race and he has single-handedly breathed life into every commentary of what was frankly, a nearly moribund genre. Marketing gold.

The concession to allow timing chain replacement on Honda engines at regular intervals, which involves supervised breaking of the engine seals, will be extended until the end of 2014.

Why am I not surprised

MM got a really great start to his MotoGP career... but so did Jorge (back in 2008), he was actually 2nd in Qatar. After that he took a 3rd, a victory (in Portugal, on his 3rd MotoGP race!), a fourth and another 2nd... so after 5 rounds, he was only 3 points behind Rossi. But then came a few painful crashes and injuries, so his level dropped a lot after those first five rounds. Be interesting to see, how Marquez does compared to that.

I see the Sturgis organizers are designing the MotoGP shirts now. I'll wait until the wolf and bald eagle are shown high fiving each other and hanging out with tatt'ed up bikini chicks.

Does that shirt say...

Does Rossi's shirt really say "Nurses Do It Better?"



Indeed!

I swear, the past two years I almost fell asleep a few times watching the races. I even didn't bother to watch a few of them. Not like me I almost thought about not getting a subscription again. Glad I did.
Thank you for making being a fan of the sport rather tedious.

Moto gp app?

Headed to COTA and was thinking about getting the Moto Gp app but the reviews I've seen are bad. If I could get the live race audio on it would be worth the $24, anyone here have it and have any input?

I have it on my iPhone. Allows me to stream live timing and audio from the practice sessions. I didn't check it during the racing as I was watching, so no point for me.
With only one race weekend as a data point, there was a time lag I noticed between the commentary and the results stream.

And..... on the other side of pond we've got the Euro thing going on. Sorry non-subscribers (or maybe the other way around).
