    2017 MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 discussion (spoilers)

    I don't like Rossi, but that was a fantastic ride. Very well measured with a wee mistake that opened the door, and then he dropped it under pressure at a frantic pace.

    I don't remember seeing him look so dejected (excluding riding for Ducati).

    It appears that one really meant something to him.

    Outstanding effort by Mav as well. That pace at the end of a race!

    And of course, my favourite little Frenchman... the limelight is certainly bringing him out of his shell.

    Dani's move looked more like the result of two different lines, having excess speed and nowhere to go when Cal took a late apex, rather than an intentionally aggressive move.

    Moto3 - fk me. When they went down like skittles, someone very nearly had their head taken off my another bike - but he "got all Matrix" and watched it sailed straight over him.

    ^^^^ his new younger team mate took the win, the championship lead and yamahas 500th win...
    He was never going to be happy about that.

    Really good to see Mav do so well under pressure... And good to watch Dani make some moves where he used to sit and wait for a bit ! Looks like his arm is finally good... And he's riding the bike a bit different now too.

    Next race should great ! :-D

    Oh yeah.

    I think this would have been it, more than the others.
    A 10th title is still very much achievable, but he'll never get another chance to get that one in his pool room.

    Probably referring to the straight line speed of the Deadcatis.

    Also known as the "Fuck Off" switch as that is what happens when you hit it.

    Ive seen way too many comments about how Rossi crashing was the fault of Vinales, and that Rossi really won that race. No fucking clue what race they were watching, but it wasnt the same one I watched.

    And whats happened to Aufitt? He's been pretty absent here this season.

    I have not seen one comment along those lines?

    Do I really have that much of a life? Didn't think so but I'll take it.

    Yeah... I found them.

    Well, kinda... I've only seen Rossi himself sat it so far.

    He's hitching about Mav cutting the chicane on the penultimate lap, and he believes gaining advantage, when he was given a time penalty at Austin.

    Yep, despite the fake news bullshit a couple of days ago, it's genuine this time.

    It's being covered on mainstream media.
