Yes after a season and a half he was able to be competitive. I really wish he would have stuck with the Ducati, it would have been awesome if he could have continued to improve on it. Also shame on Ducati for not addressing his ergonomics sooner. Dovi has been consistent and competitive on the Duck for several years now too

Well last season he wasn't really on anyone's level... there's no doubt he's a very talented rider, but for the last 5 years or so, if he doesn't get out in front, he drops like an anchor through the field. Then it's always anything but his own fault, every single time. Just not a personality or riding style that is very appealing to me I guess.

When all the major vendors pulled out of Austins' SXSW & they pulled the plug on that, I kinda figured this would happen. Wonder what Argentina might decide to do before April 19th?

There will only be one race this year. Marquez will win and become World Champion again.

I can just see it now, he'll win the Championship with only a few races this season, so there will be an asterisk next to the stats, and in years to come people will discredit his GOAT status

I recently learned there need to be 13 races completed before a champion can be crowned, so there's that...

MotoGP will offer free, all content Video Pass trial until racing resumes. There will be "virtual race" on Sunday 3/29 with the MotoGP riders playing the official MotoGp video game live. It's not much, but might be fun.

Hopefully they will give us paying customers a free ride next year.
