Cal isn't young enough.
Where does that logic go if Cal wins this race?
Everything can change in a New York minute.

I would be very disappointed to see Cal go to Ducati.
He would do better to take DePuniet's ride.

Is anybody as anxious as me to see MM's brother Alex arrive in Motogp? He is only 16 now, but according to their father he is faster than Marc at the same age. When they go out doing supermoto, the wins are spread 50/50. Think about it : a 16 year old giving the current MotoGP WC leader a run for his money on a motorbike!

Alex Rins, Alex Marquez' teammate, beat Marquez in the CEV and now in Moto3. Looking forward to Rins coming in to the class too...

Feel free to correct me if I pulled any of my info off motoGP.com incorrectly. I tried to throw this together on break.


Repsol money. The money guy is screaming for local talent and they missed the bus on Lorenzo, could you imagine the damage if Jlo was on the factory Honda.

Yeah, I get that, but again, their last four championship years were not with Spanish Riders. I guess Repsol has more control than Honda does itself??

BTW...watched a couple minutes of the qualifying at Laguna today. Not sure who the announcer was( was in middle of re-wiring TV set up), but which ever guy was murdering the names of the riders should be never be allowed to broadcast for MotoGP again. It was down right insulting.

Are you kidding? That's like a sport in my house. Hearing how many different ways they can say a riders name. It would make a great drinking game.

That would be Ralph Sheheen. He usually is in the NASTYCAR pit lane...that will tell you something.

Someone please send this guy to the bowling network.

But that's just it. How much Repsol gas can you buy in NJ? Sponsors ultimately have to justify their expenses. For the millions they shell out, Repsol would like to present a home hero to the board of directors.

I wouldn't hold your breath for Alex Marquez. He isn't as aggressive as his brother nor is he as on the edge as his brother IMO.
