Joe Roberts is at the Jerez private Moto2 test on a KTM! I don't have any other details about the team or times or anything right now.

How big is Bezzechi? That KTM looks GIGANTIC in the first pic with him on saddle. Then the next pic in the pit with with mechanic, it looks like an RC390.

Maybe the mechanic is just an ogre?

The mechanic is most likely an ogre compared to Marco, who is probably like most gp riders....an absolute fucking midget.

Shit looks like it’s being played at 1.5x speed! That’s some insane corner speed.

I can't help wondering if Marc's shoulder is going to play an important role in this season.

They usually do. I have yet to see a championship winner without one.

MM won with the shoulder so loose itd pop out if he relaxed too much. And IIRC hes won races after dislocating it on Saturday. I cant imagine it'll be worse than that, even at Qatar. its a cool storyline for sure. but I don't expect any difference in the results.

all my hopes are still on Yam and Duc getting their shit together. I just cant wait for MM to screw up or slow down, cuz hes shown us plenty of times that he doesnt.

His latest interview indicates the injury was much worse than he expected, or the doctors. He expects it to impact his early season. He also has been told to not crash, that another crash could well end his career. (Meaning wait till it is fully healed to crash, lol.)

thats my point. he won with it "much worse than expected". had docs known its condition, they also would have told him, "don't crash cuz it could end your career". but he did and it didnt.

And mine. He is perfectly willing to risk his future for the present. Should he crash while healing, it could very well mean the end of his career. Is that gamble worth it?

When I was his age I knew that I could overcome anything.

Chronic injuries ended my competitive career as an athlete. Pretty much at the peak of my accomplishments.

Eventually you're going to be right about Marquez. Probably.
