Stunning photos!

Thinking Fabio is going to bounce back.

So... I am throwing down an early podium guess..

Fabio
Mir
Rins

Be exciting to have Gerloff on the grid. We will see.

FQ20 & MV12 probably do well.

I'd like to see JM43 get a win.

Thanks for the thread kelso. Hope you didn't have to put Turbo on a treadmill to generate electricity to post a thread today.

Race 12 of the MotoGP championship. Race 6 of the Iberian Peninsula championship.

his fat ass needs the exercise for sure! I even thought about busting out the generator to post the thread.

I think it's going to be a Franky/Fab one-two. Maybe one of the ducs or the zooks on the last step.

Two thoughts on Moto GP 2020

First, I want Dovi to take the title this year. That Duc is as capable of winning Valencia as it did in 2006. Dovi needs the last three of the year to have a shot at the title and I hope he does it. Long shot, but...

Second, if we have to have a different winner than Dovi, then I hope the next three all go out with first timers: Rins, P. Espargo, Taka would be great and the most likely. Cal would be awesome too. Sorry the Doctor had to call in sick again. That stinks.

Third (sorry, can't count, I'm a biker)... While I'd love to see Garrett do really well, I'm really surprised the Factory WSBK team didn't send Toprak as he's not only won WSBK races but is WSBK Yamaha's No. 1 now that Mikey is leaving. This is where I'm guessing politics comes into play, even in WSBK/MotoGP, where they wanted another American. So be it. Go GG!

Have a fun Nov./Dec. everyone.

No Gerloff in the poll. He'll podium then Dorna will sanction Yamaha for engine violations and he'll lose all his points.

I am sure Toprack's close ties with Redbull and the factory's close ties to Monster had everything to do with him being overlooked.

If Gerloff finishes ahead of Vinales I think Yamaha will boot Mav out onto the role of test rider.

Also Iker Lecuono is out due to his Bro testing positive. So that sucks. Maybe they can get Toprak out on there as a backup
