    A question might not be can Mark Marquez go on to win on other brands of bikes, but will Mark Marquez still be racing when ebikes take over and can he (MM) become the apex champion of both eras?

    I am no a fan of MM, but he is crushing it, so mad respect for his skills and big balls. I think his winning the 2019 championship is a done deal and the only good challenger I see for next year is his brother Alex. I say fire Lorenzo, and hire Alex and let the brothers go at it and I bet it would be awesome…

    • Dave says:

      Until this year, Alex Marquez hasn’t shown that he has the potential to be a good MotoGP rider. He’s had 12 wins in 126 starts and is leading Moto2 in his 5th year in the class. I don’t think he’ll be able to qualify in the same half of the grid as his brother, let alone find him on the track.

    we will always speak of those w/ the determination/discipline/talent/fitness it takes to dominate. 125-250-500-1000-800, 2/4 stroke, single, twin four/five cylinder… we still remember geoff duke don’t we?

  4. Hot Dog says:

    Crutch says the bike is a beast to ride. MM might be in the best physical condition, of all riders, judging by the way he celebrates his wins by leaping fences and short buildings. JLo got eaten alive by the 213 trying a silk glove approach. It was interesting watching MM and Rins bumping and pushing each other whilst riding into pit lane during FP. MM has taken the “Sissies need not apply” approach and it’s working to his advantage. When MM went out on slicks in Q2, even though half of the track was still drying, shows his polished race craft (and big nadds).

  5. Patrick Doyle says:

    MM is a fierce competitor, but if he wraps up the 2019 title (he will) and the 2020 title, then he’ll swap bikes.
    He’s hungry for every record going and he gets little satisfactions from a cake-walk.

    • Dave says:

      I bet nobody else will match Repsol/Honda’s paycheck and he’ll stay there his whole career. He certainly seems happy there.

    The best action all weekend was MM’s qualifying: that was impressive!!!

  7. Jeremy says:

    The guy it’s just killing it. The other Honda riders must be scratching their heads every night wondering why they can’t even fight for the podium most of the time while riding a championship winning bike.

    And poor Zarco… A front row start and yet he immediately assumed his normal position by the first turn. I hope he can salvage something of his formerly promising career after wasting so much of it at KTM.

  8. limey says:

    MM is not of this planet.It must be so frustrating to attempt to stay competitive on the racetrack with this superstar…Wow!

  9. LIM says:

    Doohan’s feeling the heat.

    • Curtis says:

      Doohan was incredible, including coming back from several horrific injuries. On that topic, it’s amazing Marquez has avoided serious injury for this long – he crashes more than most!

    Congratulations MM! If you love MM, this is the Golden Age of MotoGP.

    Sine MM arrived in the premiere series, I’d like to see reliable ticket count numbers at races, and the number of video subscribers. Of course, Dorna would never disclose such info.

    Till MM hangs up his leathers, which won’t apparently happen till he owns every record in this class, there’s little to no competition for the race and/or championship.

    I can’t imagine him quitting prior to 2030. American football player Tom Brady just turned 42, at the most skilled player position, and he won a team Championship six months ago.

    #93 is on another plane compared to his competition. For my grandson’s generation, who loves and cheers for Marquez, in 10 years, they will be saying Valentino who?

    • carl says:

      I been cheering for number #46 for years but unfortunately time catches up with all of us. It would be great to see him one more championship but sadly I think that ship has sailed.

      • fred says:

        That ship sailed almost 10 years ago.
        The big dream now is that he might win another race before retiring. The reasonable hope is that he will continue to score podiums on occasion.

        He’s still a talented racer, but his intimidation tactics and other questionable on-track behavior no longer work for him. As long as he still enjoys racing, there will be fans who come out to watch him ride.

    • mickey says:

      btw Valentino finished first Yamaha today, which isn’t too shabby considering.

      • TimC says:

        Yep – more like the Yamaha just ain’t cutting it. It’s a real shame but them’s the breaks. It would be really interesting if Big Blue weren’t so lost.

        While its true that only MM really seems to have the Honda dialed, Ducati and Suzuki are a lot more consistent in the results these days.

      • Fivespeed302 says:

        I agree. All this talk about Valentino being over the hill would make sense if he had results similar to Dani in his last season. Maverick is certainly not too old or injured and his results this season aren’t much better.

    • bmbktmracer says:

      hahahhahahahahaha

    Marquez reigns supreme ,definitely a cut above the rest ,pushing the Honda to new limits ,maybe Honda have some anti gravity device which allows him to lean @ 66 deg ,@ that angle any dip in the speed or a slight squeeze of the brakes and he’s slip sliding away ,and with a little bit of luck & plenty of skill do the Marquez save
