Barreda Bort seems despondent and tired. Has he given up completely?

It just depends if there were navigation mistakes or flood problem the first concurrents could not avoid... in the second case, sorry for Pyn and the others, was too easy for them to take the right way. I mean at wp9 Campbell and Bianchi Prata were around 40th or 50th positions

The CNC work on Mareks case cover tells me that it could be a factory KTM powerplant!

For better or worse.

What? Conspiracies and controversies?

Despres says it's been prepped well and hopes to go the distance on it. Makes me believe that maybe it was a new(ish) engine already.......

Despres said in the interview that his own mechanic prepared Marek's engine and that he knows it well.

From the rider interviews, I see no reason for the ASO to make any changes to the results.

Nobody is bitching about unfair conditions.

Carlton said Pain lost time due to mechanical

Barreda, yeah, looks a bit disappointed, maybe too high expectations for this one. He needs to step back, breathe and come back swinging. Too much pressure on him to perform maybe, especially after the first 3-4 stages

Chaleco hugging Casteu, what a great image

Exactly, Hats off for the riding and navigational skills ! This is a very interesting turn of events for Pyn !! I hope he stays in the top 10 and improves his position ! GoooooOOOO !

Wait till the team lawyers have their take on it...

But it's a good pointer, yes.
