Can any one Beat MM?

And advNZ just got trumped by Yoop anyway.

But notice DC, he didn't get TOO fancy with the thread title.

BUT...as I was also taken to task for- advNZ didn't include "MotoGP" in the title.

Hey who gives a crap- we just want to see the races, right?

That is another excellent preview by Krop - once I have read one of those, my race weekend begins.

I really like the the line - Marquez came into MotoGP with high expectations, and proceeded to make those talking him up feel guilty about underestimating him so badly". I am fully paid up member of that very large club!!

I thought Lorenzo would take the title, but MM would give him bit of a scareat times, but Jorge's experience would win out in the end.

Has any rookie won 5 in a row??? Who would bet against MM right now!! He certainly is on a roll.!!

Yeah I was in that group as well, until just before Indy. By then I was all-in with MM. Every session. Kid is a genius. Yamaha may have a drought for a decade.
