And his race smarts are just getting better with each race. When he REALLY gets comfortable and further improves his setup- everyone else is going to be racing for 2nd. Looking at #99 and #26 at the post-race Q & A- they are starting to look like deer in the headlights.

I don't remember who won off the top of my head. But the race was outrageous.

It took a few laps to heat up, and it was pretty much settled by the last couple of laps, but in between was just awesome.

Marc has brought a bit of that style forward to Moto GP. They all used to do it in the 990 era.

Moto 2 has always been good. They have matured quite a bit that last year or so. I always point to the 2011 race at Aragon. If you have a Moto GP pass and you haven't seen it before, do yourself a favor.
Im about halfway through this race right now...holy crap. If I wasnt already convinced that Moto2 was the best class this would have decided it for me.

I agree if we only had one pick, but if King Kenny has a big program, I think he'd have Gerret Gerloff and Joe Roberts too. KR could make a dent with those kids.

^^^ At the beginning of the season I thought Marquez was a fast wild man who was going to crash a lot. Now, it's obvious, he's a fast wild man who just goes fast and is fun to watch doing it!

WOW! Backing it in, on the brake, not just engine braking, hopping the rear sideways. This kid is really really good or really really lucky.
He came off the seat when he spun up the rear at Indy and managed to stay on the bike. Fun to watch!!

Taken from one of the many articles quoting the King himself

"We’re working on it. And we’re working on something quite big – it’s going to happen or it’s not going to happen,” he said. “It’s not going to be almost there. When we come back we’ll come back in a big way! And if you don’t see me, you’ll know we didn’t get it done."

Thats no lower tier Moto2 plans he has in the works..

Is it him, or the superior equipment making him look so good. Recent races, is it some great racing up front...front five or so.

Roger Lee has been showing some great riding recently too.

I think we can relatively rule out luck at this stage. The kid has only crashed in a race once, and that was front end tuck if I remember right.
