And can someone please tell the guys at Dorna to please stop sending emails with the results in the title heading before I can watch the recorded coverage! At least make it where they only show up in the email body. Tired of opening my email account up and seeing the spoiler in the email heading without even opening it. I know I can go to the no spoiler video page but can't avoid my emails until I can watch the coverage.
Unsubscribe, eh

"On this track I have a bad feeling from the bike. The bike is very slow and very difficult to ride with the engine braking and acceleration. But especially with the longer gear the bike doesn't push. It is a long, long time since I tried a bike that is so slow in MotoGP. Now with 20 litres the engine goes like it is running on air."

What a joke MotoGP has become, just as the 2014 season starts. No one is racing now, it's just a game of rules and regulations.
Certainly. I'm beginning to believe that my Sundays will be better spent bbq'ing and smoking (mesquite/hickory) than watching live races. There are plenty of great races on rewind

Oh yeah- forgot about those guys.

The 4 RCV1000 bikes should be given their own class......

1 litre of fuel makes a big difference. I wonder about blaming Bridgestone for this. Seems to me it's a fuel thing.

So much whining! This racing season , I think, will be one for the record books. Even if AE manages pole (I'm sure he will) do we really think he'll lead the pack for race distance? My bet is that master race craft will still win out over the course of the race. My bet is

DP
VR
JL
MM
SB
AE
Dovi
DUC
DUC
CE2
Nick
.......all other fillers

It's like Christmas Eve in this bitch!
