Met this bloke today:



Really looks forward for this season. Starts testing next week and wants to win Qatar. Thinks is on the best bike of the grid, couple spaniards might be quick and new Honda effort bit of mystery where they with race pace. Was riding on ice on dirt bikes, sounded like a lot of fun. Bit different than dirt track eh?

Looking forward to seeing about the Honda effort. Really looking forward to seeing what the Moto3 graduates do in Moto2.

Looking forward to seeing him and the two Alex's battle. Also hoping by late in the season Hannika has the pace and I think he will.

Some Aussie short arse that needs a haircut.. (see Mdubya)

Should give CE a run for his money in the "character" stakes, I remember him being interviewed just before the start at Philip Island: Asked how he felt about the race, the answer was something like "I'm nervous as fuck and really need a piss"

I like him, hope he has a good season.

The other guy to watch for is Karel Hanika a Czech kid who dominated the Red Bull rookie cup and should be one to watch. He is teaming with Miller on the Ajo racing team. I think by the end of the year we may hear a few new national anthems in the Moto3 class.
To me the big question is if the Honda has a gap on the KTM? It seems to have found some speed and there is a new engine "lottery" designed to keep some more parity amongst teams.

Info on Honda is they are having more teething troubles than they expected. They could be well off the pace at the start of the year. Jack Miller is fantastic, fast as he'll and mad as a box of frogs. Hanika is special, but he'll take a while to get up to speed. Watch out for Danny Kent as well.

Forgot about Kent and I expect Isaac Vinales to sometimes tussle upfront, and maybe a podium on rare occasions.
Thanks for the Honda insight.

New Brough Superior monocoque MotoGP2 bike presented in Jay Leno's Garage.
It may race as a wildcard entry this year.

(2nd time I've posted this reply today..)

If they think it'll be competitive, they're dreaming. BUT. The world needs dreamers, so a heap of good luck to em! They obviously need funding, hence the vid. (And really crappy finish, even the carbon up close is seriously second rate..)
The Hossack/ BMW front end is kind of weird. On a strange road at speed, searching, nothing comes close, but at the track, give me my 749R..

Keogh's been involved in LOTS of projects over the years, always trying to think outside the box.

Can't decide who I want to conquer Moto3 more, Kent or Miller? I'm looking mighty forward to all three classes this season!
