2017 MotoGP season

Post by Jermaine2015 on Tue 28 Mar 2017, 1:22 pm

So the new season kicked off in grand style in Qatar. New Yamaha sensation Maverick Vinales was a class apart on his factory Yamaha debut. The Spanish youngster lived up to his billing as second favourite for the title with both pole position and the race win. The boy looks a phenomenal talent. Andrea Dovizioso bagged second and Valentino Rossi claimed third. It was a very close race as the top 3 where separated by less than 2secs. Yamaha's 2017 bike is comfortably the fastest bike at present. Repsol duo Marquez and Pedrosa came home 4th and 5th respectively but they weren't in podium contention. Former 3 time champion Jorge Lorenzo had a miserable weekend. Struggling to get to grips with the beastly Ducati, he must be regretting jumping ship from Yamaha...

Caught this last night, some cracking racing. Shame Zarco fell off while leading, I expect his softs rears would of gone off though. Does indeed look like the Yamaha is top dog atm, you'd expect Vinales to always be one step ahead of Rossi throughout the season.

I wouldn't right of the Doctor just yet. It's commonly known in the MotoGP paddock that Rossi's not all that interested in qualifying but come race day the old magic rears its head more often that not. Even Vinales admitted he was baffled by Rossi's recovery from 10th to 3rd

Might be time to rename the Circuits of the Americans as the Marc Marquez playground. Yet another sensational display by the Spaniard as he roared to a fifth straight win in Texas. He always landed an awesome pole position. No one else has ever stood on the top step in Texas. Rossi second and Pedrosa third. Maverick Vinales dnf handing Rossi the championship lead.

Good to see Dani Pedrosa on the top spot of the podium and it looks like Lorenzo is getting to grips with the Ducati.It's strange how different circuits suit the various makes of bike. It's going to be an interesting season with newcomer Zarco being so competitive.

Nothing really overly special about Lorenzo's podium in Jerez. The excessive heat killed Yamaha's front tyres.

When Pedrosa's on it, he's unbeatable.

Devastating news about Nicky Hayden. One of my all time MotoGP favourite riders. News don't look very good at present severe brain injuries being reported. C'mon Kentucky Kid you can beat this. Praying for Nicky #69

Maverick Vinales won the French GP at Le Mans after Valentino Rossi made multiple errors on the final lap. First Rossi ran wide allowing Vinales to take the lead. Then as Rossi attempted to regain the lead he crashed out. Vinales victory also gained the young Spaniard the championship lead. Zarco claimed his maiden premier class podium with second. The Frenchman has been mighty impressive. Dani Pedrosa was third. Mugello in two weeks time and Rossi desperately needs a win

Devastating news about the passing of Nicky Hayden. In a paddock full of egos, he was the laid back kid from Kentucky who was the most likeable rider in the paddock. Nicky will be forever remembered for his thrilling world championship victory against Valentino Rossi in 2006. Forever 35 #RIPKentuckyKid #69

R.I.P.

It is being reported as a cycling "accident" - he was on a bicycle and he was hit by a car and he died as a result of that.

A few weeks I almost missed a story because it wasn't given much prominence. Chris Froome while training on his bicycle was attacked by a motorist in France, where the motorist drove onto the pavement to get him. Fortunately for Chris Froome he was okay but the whole incident seems to have been downplayed.
