If I were either of the other title contenders, I would be looking to rough-up MM any way I could. He seems to always come out on top in these little tiffs. He seems to be willing to take more risks near other racers than any other rider. If I were DP or Jlo I would fight fire with fire.

I predicted before the season, that there will be some head explosing in the all Spanish Repsol garage. I'm surprised it took so long in the season for Pedrosa to heat up.

Gavin Emmett said that he had heard that the contract was signed last night. Only an official announcement to be made. When Nick Harris raised the possibility that maybe they were still working on details Gavin said, "no, it's done."

So wait for the official announcement.

There is some stuff in the Italian press about the VR46 Brand being involved with Team Aspar somehow (I wondered if that didn't account for NH69 being a guest at VR's ranch) but the translations are not clear and it is even possible that the talks are about running Rossi's Moto 3 team, but I haven't got a clear translation.

He has been clean as a whistle ever since. I wonder if MM won't receive more penalty points from the safety commission, which should include an actual race penalty? He is already on probation, so to speak. Would be more interesting if they weren't both Spanish.

This is just the thing. MM is the aggressor, ala early Rossi, and others complain, but no one will call him on his game. It didn't turn out too well for Rossi's opponents. They will start relenting when he gets near them, soon enough.

Jorge better be practicing his elbows up dirt tracking between races.

Ever seen the Marquez brothers greet each other? It is always with slaps and punches.

Nakamoto started the weekend by chastising his riders for not being more aggressive early in the race.

Poor Dani.
Is that broken wire on the tire side of the swingarm or the outside, and is that the left side or the right side of the swingarm? If it's on the tire side I don't see how Marquez's bike could have hit it. Also, if it's on the left side same comment, because Marquez brushed past on the right side.

That is the right outside of the swingarm, exactly where MM hit DP.

My editorial take (like anyone cares ) is that MM did not cause Dani's crash. HRC's leaving the rear wheel sensor exposed caused the crash.

It would be a travesty if Marc gets penalized in race results.

Just sayin'
Actually anybody with IQ more than 15 would know exactly where they are. They are fully visible.

MM did not hit it on purpose, that much I am certain of. Besides, you've got the wheel spokes going round right next to it, you DON'T want any body parts to get there!

It's the right side. Go out and look at your own right side axle adjuster.

Let me guess, that up until now everybody has had the sensors more or less exposed. A bit like brake levers before.... Now what could possibly happen?

A cover to a rear wheel sensor would probably cost around 20 bucks. Ironic, that not having one has taken a rider out of the title fight.

PENALTIES? Aggressive riding and CLOSE passing is now a problem?

Isn't that what everyone was crying for before?

Sore losers. I understand your hero isn't leading, neither is mine, but if I had to jump on a bandwagon, I don't mind jumping on Marc's. Even Rossi is on it.

The whispers are that Yamaha lodged the complaint to race control.

Would make strategical sense.
