I wouldn't compare him to a knight of the roman church... But it's going to be a long winter of no racing

Personally I'm anticipated, not sure what Rossi will do. Don't hate him, just not a fan



Whoody whoody woo!

I hope he can be at the front and back on the podium with some regularity.

Nothing. He won't do any better than ben if they can't keep the bike from falling apart.

You mean Lorenzo, current world champion? Ben was falling apart more than the bike, in my opinion.

Not even close to the intensity that JL has now. He's older and wiser now. He has everything to lose.

I think he'll be back at the front...and the 'dislike' he has with Jorge will push him even more...

Thats going to happen when you have zero confidence in your team and your equipment. Even more so when you start to push it and the tire flys apart, or your swing breaks in half. Not making excuses for him but damn, just when he gets it together the bike fails...or he does...when your head is messed up your going to make mental mistakes.

I think he'll be more by far more competitive, he'll get race wins and podiums, but I don't think he'll get another championship unless something happens to Jorge. I'm equally excited to see Marquez on the Honda.


Stairway To Heaven was played on a telecaster, Another Brick In the Wall (part 2) was played on a Les Paul. Adjust your view of the universe accordingly

he better do something next year while marquez gets used to the repsol. After that he will never win again. Then when maverick vinales gets to the big leagues, look for lorenzo to not even be winning anymore. mark my words.

thats what i've seen as well, its almost like they couldnt even bother to try n' make him somewhat happy... he's on the way out the door and it obviously affected his emotional state... once that goes and the bike starts acting up... it gets pretty damn hard to keep it together...

Are you thinking that's his new scheme? We won't see that until much later very likely, that's probably just a fan-made chop.
