Just watched the highlights, great racing and a real mix again

First for FM. Mir on the podium again, Suzuki coming good?

The factory Yamaha are well off the pace for me. MV is having a very poor run too, pole to 6th

I'm really not sure what to believe anymore, the so "called experts" down here are reporting that Dovi has now priced himself out of a petronas Yamaha ride alongside Valli???.
Crazy days, but it's Mugello, bring on the crazy track, going to be an epic weekend as always

He is still the man to beat, la rat boy

To be fair, can't wait to see FQ on a factory ride, Vinales has had a bit of bad look don't get me wrong but he is deffo not the success they expected him to be. Maybe rat boy gets a bit or serious competition next year, KTM, Ducati, possibly Suzuki and yamaha, Honda will take some beating for me though Jon

Yep, MM is apparently coming back at Aragon so he can help Honda build a 2021 bike specifically for him.
Espargero will obviously fully approve it #?•₩#?
That will be the ****ers garage next year, no way those 2 will get on.
Hope rumours are right then as zarco is my favourite rider, be nice to see him and Miller going at it.
Mrs loves quateraro which is weird as his chest is like the Mojave desert whereas mine is like the new Forrest.....

I'm a miller fan Jon, ex motocrosser, exiting to watch, deserves that ride

Zarco, that should be interesting?

Exiting times, who's gonna be where. One thing for sure we know where MM will be

Hi Chris

Hope you're well

Biggest news im waiting confirmation on is that zarco has the factory ride alongside Miller at Ducati, press down here is selling it, but they are notoriously full of poo

Interesting one Jon, guess he still has race pace

KTM seem to have a very good bike there and I think they could be a serious challenge to Honda if they can get the right rider. Is that Dovi, mmmmm?

I was watching WSB yesterday and they were talking about a conversation with a team manger who had been around the block a bit. When they choose a rider they are looking for the next talent who will beat and be the next MM. Otherwise they could just sign any rider. Makes you think, if KTM are that serious, they have to be, is Dovi their man at 31?

Mir is starting to look good and I canít see any reason why he would leave Suzuki. FQ has signed, FM?

Not sure, it will be interesting to see who really goes where

Hi All

Just seen the talks between Dovi and KTM have broken down over money.
I think his manager is pricing him out of a ride, be a shame if he's not on the grid next year, but what options does he have now for next year???
Aprillia?, Suzuki?
Seems the Dovi story doesn't end well
At least Rossi signed the 2 years yesterday

Forgot to add before, Vinales said he had 4 warnings of the brakes failing before the off, personally I think he should have come in or been made to by the race director. Imagine carrying on knowing and something awful happens :-(

Cost Mir the race did that

Iím guessing ViŮales just plain **** himself. Bike over his head last week, jumping off the bike this week, brake failure. Not looking good for Yamaha either, engines, not enough top end, no wonder they are struggling. When the non factory bikes are doing well they should know they have problems

And once again, especially WSB and BSB the Ducati V4 is just like cheating for me, so high revving and the straight line speed just blows everything else out of the water although the new Honda seems to be catching up, seems to be

Yeah, felt for Mir but you have to ask why they didn't have a tyre in reserve JIC. I know races aren't often split but even so, it certainly helped Miller in part 2.

I'm still trying to decide if Vinales went over to his bike and put his head in his hands out of a, shock, or B frustration the bike wasn't still o.k...inspite of being on fire at the time

Agree with the blind crests, odd how these things aren't already in place in this day and age.

Well, just watched the highlights from yesterday. Brake failure and jumping off a bike at 130mph must be a hell of a shocker. Last time I saw that it was Eugene Laverty in WSP

Disappointed for Mir he deserved that win

Air bags in place too. Did a proper job on saving ViŮales bike until it set on fire

Iím guessing thatís the next area for review, straights that have the potential to run over corners if the worst happens. Thought the same afterwards, thought they would have some kind of protection. Quite a dangerous track

The blind summits are another one too as the Moto 2 crash. Maybe a flashing sign above the track on blind summits or a least a flag man on them?
