Really good interview.
I am interested to see what develops with the weight issue he spoke about. 20kg extra into a corner at 300kph amounts to a big issue IMO.

Krop has an interesting interview with JB during mid season. With hind sight, it is even better!

EXCELLENT!

We all hope that JB will write a book about his years in the pit- could probably be a multi-volume set.

IMHO, VR is grasping for anything that can return him to the pointy end. I fear that age may prevent that.

I agree. Still like to watch him race and hear his interviews. I also like that even though he is less competitive for the podium, when he does make it up there he is genuinely excited and is a good sport about it.

Hopefully he is competitive this year and can mix it up for a few podium finishes.

A review of last year's crashes just went up over on motogp.com; much to no one's surprise, Marc Marquez took the title amongst GP leaders for most crashes, by a long margin (15 vs three for Jorge and five for Dani).

Yeah... he bounced nice this year at age 20. Gonna be a different story when he gets older.

Interesting. I figured he had crashed at least as much as his rivals (with the key difference being he didn't get hurt!) but not three or more times as much.
Obviously he bounces better then his older rivals and was certainly consistent in the actual races... but that kind of frequency can't be maintained or next year its just a matter of time!
