    Im out of town on a bike trip so I’m going to miss this one. Made my wife promise to watch it and take notes so I can catch up when I get home. Told her it was Crutchlows home race so he would be pushing extra hard and smiling less than usual lol

      Steady improvement and both under the Espargaro bro’s. Both put a bike in the top-10 last week. I can’t remember the last time Suzuki did, though they appear to be closer this week.

    Uncanny, the way Marquez can crash and crash and crash, and never get hurt. He’s been doing this his entire MotoGP career.

    Besides his sheer speed and maniacal will to win, his ability to push to the limit, cross that limit and crash, and hop right back on without having to pay any physical toll has been one of the main keys to his success. Other people miss races and even large chunks of the season when they crash and suffer broken bones. Rubber Boy Marquez? It just never happens.
