    Good night it’s late. Race starts in 5 mins. Probably been a year since I was up this late. Really should get a DVR lol

    The peculiar alignment of the stars on the front row needs to be mentioned. All three are tied for the most pole positions at 64!

    Poor Pedi just can’t get a whole season in good health.

    Lol I’m here. Dang buzzard luck strikes again, another broken collarbone for Dani. Arrgghh.

    Have to stay up until 1:00 am for the race. Rossi did well. He makes things interesting for sure.

    In the meanwhile Mickey refresh the page again and again and no mention of Pedrosa’s accident.

    Rossi doing a good qualifying lap???? strange…

      Rossi has said that he is sick (a cold) and will struggle to churn out fast lap after fast lap during the race. Marquez dosnt want to take risks, Horgay will be sore after his massive crash, could be a chance for Vinales or Dovi to take the top step. Here’s hoping for a good battle whatever the outcome.
