    Maybe it’s because I’ve been drinking, but I think Vale needs to grow his hair out again. Say it’s a tribute to Simoncelli.

    fully aware of Yamaha’s history around the Bugatti Circuit, Jay stares longingly at the 3 men on the podium and laments to himself…

    to kinda put the irony of Nicky’s accident into perspective, you gents may want to look up the video of Jack Miller’s practice crash into the wall this weekend at Lemans and in car world Sebastien Bourdais’ qualifying crash into the wall at Indianapolis, both are absolutely horrifying while eerily similar for being different disciplines of motorsport.

    That was an exciting Q1 and Q2 for a change. Zarco did not disappoint the home crowd.

    KTM puts both bikes in the top-10, besting a Repsol Honda, a Tech3 Yamaha, both Suzuki’s, and a factory Ducati or 2..
