Why he continues to do dumb shit like this is beyond me because it's dangerous to others.


And you think he could see that oil dripping down?

So much for my Mir prediction - dude was just cruising. #nottheheartofachampion

Nice for Olivera at home.

I'd buy that Oliveira shark lid in a second if they would release it. Instead we have zarco and lorenzo lids ....

Way to go for Oliveira!

If it is bad enough that he had to pull off the track and run the runoff, it's bad enough not to cross an active track. Even if he can't see the fluid dripping the smoke screen he generated had enough volume to be an issue.

Because .. I am a dork and maybe next year we can have a grid challenge with some sort of Prize/ glory kind of thing. I am bored.

So. My grid.

Maverick, Mir, Zarco = 0
Franky , Binder, Quato = 1
Aleix, Miller, Olivera =0
Pol, Rins, Dovi = 2
Taka, Cal, Bradl =0
Rossi, AM, Bagnia =2
Petrux, other Aprilia dude, Nicks Favorite Bro and a dude from Finland that makes one of my friends happy every time he shows up. =2
7 points.. I suck.

I expected a great performance from Mir myself.

Olivera ripped it up. To damn bad there were no fans to cheer on their compatriot.

Franky did amazing too. Through Q1 by a whisker to P2 on the grid.
He could be on for the win although I chose Olivera. Maybe that will happen, but if I had to pick a winner I would say Franky.

Past 61 degrees, I'm fairly sure he had lost the front, but was able to save it.

Those guys live on another level.

My little amateur taste allows me a bit of insight into how cool it is.

And then there is the big bux, the celebrity, the girls, the.... must be awesome.

The photo gallery at MotoGP.com from Portimao is extra spectacular. IMO, ties with Red Bull Ring for best photos.


Gonna miss this livery.
