Great pics as always Kelso.

I will take the Podium just like last year except no MM.

Be awesome to see Vale win though.

Sounds like Jorge's PR machine is still working the July-August rumors.

The article was in Italian, but they had some medical people give their opinions as to what was going on. One of them mentioned that the Instagram photos show MM has a cast all the way down to his hand and thumb which is odd if it’s a humorous break that’s been plated. So they are thinking since the plate snapped, they needed to put a pin up through his elbow and immobilize the whole arm. But even that might be having issues.

It was linked on motomatters.

Looking at the results from last year.

Some observations.

Yamaha looks good.

KTM had three dudes in the top 11. Better bike this year they could challenge.

Olivera sucked some bad luck. I expect more this weekend.

Ducati has work to do to find a podium.

Lorenzo raced last year??

So looking forward to the races.

Looks like it fits the theory that he was seen on an MX track. No way a plate snaps like that from a “Window”, unless it was a gigantic window with 3” thick glass.

Looks like it was fixed before and broken again.

Do we know that x-ray is for real. The last one purported to be of Marc was bogus. And why would Honda or Marc allow that to be released?

I’d appreciate the irony and BARF salute to his employer if Dovi wins the championship! Don’t all of us over 40 want Rossi to win another race?

Lot of talk from racers who have tested at Misano about the extremely high grip levels offered by the new surface. Which bike/rider will benefit from a high grip track? Yamaha? Suzuki? KTM?
