Hayden tweeted that he'd been invited but declined to work on getting his wrist in shape for next season.

One of the things that interests me is the Espargo brothers. I think Pol is faster, but Aleix has experience, and Pol is on a factory bike and Aleix on an open Yamaha.
I wonder if Pol will be faster straight out, or the experience will be an advantage. As well as the how far about the bikes are.

Aleix screwed the pooch when he bought himself out of his Aspar contract.

Boys will be boys, but I hope MM don't bring that new "trick" Brad showed him, to the big track. He'll knock D-Ped right off the bike...

No, MM hit Jorge right in the center of the turn because he got inside and Jorge continued on his late apex line. That move above was entering the turn or at the end of the straight when MM moved in and Baker was already there.

Casey reveals his hatred for the media, the fans, supporters and the sponsors.
He must have grimaced all the way to the bank.

Thanks for posting that, an interesting read.
I can empathise somewhat with his feelings. The stuff about being bullied at school and then withdrawn to be home-schooled is quite revealing. Those emotions go deep, and being further isolated can't have helped.

I liked Oxleys line here:

Do we really want every rider to give himself a PR work-over, learning to always say the right thing and always smile at the camera? I know I don’t.
Yep. Far too much of that practiced PRtalk everywhere these days.
