Yep, I agree.
Got to go with Marquez for the win.
It's hard to choose between Rossi and Crutchlow for second and third.


Marquez
Rossi
Crutchlow

Wow, you can keep saying it's only day one, just two free practices, and you can keep saying it's only round 9, halfway through the season. But, Marquez is no flash in the pan apparently, he just keeps running up front. Now, Laguna Seca where he's supposedly not ridden before, on top again?

Marc says he was just trying to learn his way around today. Hasn't even started working on setup yet.

When will be the next time Marquez isn't leading the championship?

Jorge and Dani have proven that anything can happen. Can't crown MM champion just yet.

We can sure enjoy all the drama and developments in the meantime.

Do you agree; If that bike had #27 on the front, would you know the difference?!

I cannot believe it was just last year, when many people said MM and his team were CHEATING in Moto2! He´s well and truly silenced such claims this year, though......

1) this guy smiles
2) he prefers close racing
3) he clearly enjoys the circus he races in

Don't mind #27 but prefer 93 any day of the week. And mind you I am Australian and love fishing too.

Wouldn't surprise me if MM shows up at Rossi's farm with his little brother for some after season dirt tracking.

Ps that would be a best seller DVD , motogp riders at the farm, way too many egos and testosterone

Yeah, all that stuff......but I'm talking about the rider/bike, style/attitude. On track! With a change of number, it could be the same guy.
This could change tomorrow of course, when MM gets to know his way around.... ( And starts to implement his own settings )

I wouldn't know the difference. He uses the throttle the same way and puts the bike in the exact same line lap after lap.

Mmmmh... To me Marquez looks a bit "smaller" than Casey, also he tends to hang off the bike a little more than the Australian. But maybe it's just me....
