    maybe i'm crazy, but i think dovi might challenge mm more than 99 will.
    hubris-that's the game with the blocks, right?

    /ˌʌɪəˈtɒlə/

    I am gunna put it out there and say that mm will win two more titles with Honda to equal the hated ones record. Then jump ship to another bike. I’m gunna say Suzuki or Ducati. Yuall heard it here first.

    I think it is telling that JLo is still worried about Rossi, or he would not be trying to discount him.
    It seems that until the season starts and things get underway there are no favorites. But it still looks like the Yamaha is not as good as the Honda and Ducati. And the Suzuki is even more improved than last year. What remains to be seen is how good the KTM is this year.

    The Ducati made some good leaps forward last season, partly due to Lorenzo, so i hope your right Crim, i really want to see a Ducati regularly on the podium, and occasionally on the top step. For me, the big question is how far has the Suzuki progressed, its made steady steps each season, and i think they have a great rider in Rims aboard, and 2ndly Lorenzo, how will the honda suit his smooth fast flowing style, if it does, he's a threat. I see Lorenzo fighting with MM and Dovi being the benifactor, This season is going to be really exciting, just hope all contenders stay injury free till the end. My end of season pick..MM-Dovi-Lorenzo-Mav-Rims-Rossi and fingers crossed for Pol on the KTM, love to see that guy up there, i think he will get on the podium once on a wet track.

    i am doubtful as to the amount of the bikes success being jlo, but whatever. i think everyone should be aware of what might happen on the zook squad. they are making the kind of progression i had hoped for the ape. but crying won't help. how i look at the jlo on honda thing is-he was fairly successful against mm on the duc when he got his groove, but i think that bike might still be faster than the honda. so i think of him as hassling mm, but probably not beating him. we'll see.

    Traditionally Honda's have suffered from understeer for years . This requires the rider to push the front to get it to turn. Mick D was great at it. On the flip side Foggy couldn't adapt his high corner speed style to it on the rc45. MM appears to push the front too, perhaps JLo will struggle . Will be a great watch

    Agreed - but I think that fits all of the top guys right now, unless MM gets injured. I'd say not beating him regularly though, as he'll always lose a race here and there.

    That said, I'd love to see a legit. challenge from someone to push the championship to Valencia.

    Good stuff.

    Meanwhile Aleix’s brother Pol (who conveniently uses the same face to keep family costs down) finished a very respectable 10th on the rival mob KTM

    Yep, that’s crazy talk

    Lorenzo is a far better and more aggressive rider than Dovi - I think you’re coloured by two shit seasons at Ducati and have forgotten that, after Stoner retired, he was the best rider in the pack.

    Sam Lowes has looked good in every test on the new bike so far, here's hoping he's now in the right place to give it a good shot.

    Nobody picking up on Fenati and his speed so far? The bad boy returns!! If he keeps his head on straight he could be a significant prospect for the Moto3 championship, what a story that would be....
