Rossi's Spanish?

Test. Which one doesn't belong? Answer - Rossi. Who's missing? Answer - Dani. What an insult! Perhaps a harbinger of things to come.
Pol's riding well, but he's not in that league.

It's not that he is or isn't spanish, but he is MotoGP's poster boy(no pun intended) and a fan favorite everywhere. Besides, Danny's current recovery has left his performance lacking a bit compared to his normal standings. There is nothing exciting about that....but Pol.....Pol seems to be pushing more and more...and in that, finding something. Now that's exciting.

On paper, a Yamaha track. Mugello and Barcelona are two tracks Marquez said he had most problems with. We all know how that worked out at Mugello...

It looks like it is a Monster energy sponsored event, Rossi and Pol have big Monster contracts.

Either of those would force everyone to use lower revving engines with more tractable power that benefit "all" riders.

And by changing the gearbox instead of mandating a rev limit there would never be any question of someone "fooling" the rev limiter portion of the onboard brain.
There's some old school thinking.

Having between 5-10 enormous moments during an average race weekend, that he saves just ΄business as usual΄ isn΄t enough. NOW we΄re gonna realize, that the dude actually redefines the meaning of “real deal”!!

And I was actually stupid enough to bet a big bottle of whiskey, that Rossi wins 3 races this year... so I΄m gonna go with him to take this one. Now he HAS to, otherwise my image of a whiskey bottle will slowly start fading away .......

Marquez is a juggernaut, but I'm still hoping to see Rossi pull the rabbit out of the hat. It's a tough one for him to pull off with MM and Jorge out there (assuming JL is still on form, holee sheeit he was hauling ass at Mugello).

Rossi
Marquez
Lorenzo

(no, I'm probably not dealing with reality here... )

It's funny, I have never been a big Rossi fan until last year and now.

This is Lorenzo's best hope for a win. Assen is Rossi's best hope for a win. But, well, you know, Marquez...

Actually think Rossi might have been in the mix at the last race if he qualified better leading to a better start.

If Rossi is on the front row this week it could get interesting.

Pedrosa holds most of the circuit records, and is ahead of Lorenzo in the championship, so all the above notwithstanding, it is a bit of an affront. Too many Spaniards to choose from apparently.
