American GP… 2 laps to go…so far it’s been a really good race.

Yeah a really good race. Tears of joy by the winner.

Highlights ITV4 tomorrow evening.

Spent all weekend watching motoGP and football. Life's tough.

Really enjoyed the racing. Was gutted when Marquez fell off. Pedro Acosta is something else, not as fast as Marquez but getting there.

Good to see Joe Roberts do well at his home grandprix.

Moto GP is so much more exciting than F1.

It's going to be a cracker of a season I think.

World Superbikes is excellent. The Assen round was spot on. Pity it isn’t getting more attention. Toprak is something else.

Apparently there’s a strong rumour that Gigi wants Marquez in his factory team.
Imagine that for a moment. Plus there’s more talk of BMW entering into MotoGP again.

Jorge Lorenzo vs Dani Pedrosa.....Boxing match.

Jorge has offered him out for a scrap. Laughing

Watched a brief clip of Jorge in a Barcelona boxing gym...he looks out of shape.

Should be good...or absolutely not. Thumbs Up

...following on from that and without giving the results away it appears that tyre pressure penalties are in play again.

I fully understand why the regulations are in place as you'd be getting teams running really low pressures at the start of the race and Michelin can't vouch for the integrity of the tyre if a rider is in clear air with a low pressured tyre. Teams want them at optimal esp when in a group or following but the Michelin's 'balloon' when hot.

Still...it's pretty poor when you watch a race and then the podium changes an hour after the last lap.

Just watched it and I'm gutted for Marquez, he such an arse and is enjoying falling off to much. Don't particularly like Jorge Martin but can see him winning tomorrow unless Marc stays on his bike. Wee laddie Acosta is in with a shout. It's only a matter of time before he wins.

Honestly Motogp is the most fun to watch for getting your arse cheeks crunching Laughing

That was a RACE, not a procession and all the better for it. 1st place should be a fight, challenge or a battle, not a guarantee based on pole position and electronic launch systems.

Those laps by PB at the end though - that was something else in terms of speed and precision.

MM93 won't shut the haters up but he's definitely given them something else to moan about Mr. Green

3 rider team?
Jorge because he’s young and fast?
Marc because he’s Marc?

May come down to who it the most affordable.

That French GP was good. A big crowd sure adds to the atmosphere.

The Northwest200 was pretty cool too. BSB and WSB are both great.

Excellent season so far.

Unable to go to the TT this year but got time booked off to watch it on the small screen.

TT one of the best things I've done but the commitment required plus the costs ....

GP outstanding today. It feels alive again

Ain't that the truth. The amount of flirting at the moment is hilarious.

Aleix will retire at the end of the season.

Not confirmed but likely he’ll join his brother as a test rider. Speaking of which Crutchlow has decided to have surgery and will miss his first wildcard of the year.

Guess the arms....

I wonder which seat Marquez will have next year. He could potentially win the championship this year.

Yep I'm a Marc fanboy. Love his aggression and skill.

You can't deny marquez's talent, he's just a bit lorenzo when interviewed. Whereas Italians sound excited most of the Spanish sound very flat. If he gels a bit more with that bike (and stays on it) he's definitely in with a shout for the title.
