and MM lost to those 2 racers in '13 more than a few times. they all werent runaway races either.

Moaner was amazing back in '11 and '12 and MM wasnt nearly as strong as he is now in '13.

all MM has to do is make parade laps.

MM will likely not accept that and try to win in grand fashion.

If he does, then he risks it all if Dovi is at the front.

I'm quite sure he's been reminded of the lack of need to ride on the edge.

Pretty much what I'm banking all my hopes and dreams on, at this point.

Need some extra reading?

The online publication On-Track Off-Road's November issue has two interesting articles on World Championship roadracing, a spectacular photo essay on the recent Losail WSBK race in addition to columns by David Emmett and Neil Morrison. There is an excellent interview with Ducati Superbike project leader Ernesto Marinelli who is leaving after 22 years at Ducati. Particularly interesting is his comments on working with different riders including Fogarty, Bayliss, Kocinski, Hodgson and Davies.

A few pages later LCR Honda's chief technician Christophe Bourguignon discusses the eye-popping costs associated with crashing and repairing a MotoGP racebike.

Happy reading. There will be a test.

To be fair, 2013 was MM93's rookie year.

I think the bike as is today, MM93 would beat CS27 most of the time. They both have very different riding styles..

Rossi runs yet another rider off the track, and this is interpreted as Stoner "cracking under pressure"

which color of Rossi underoos did y'all get, the yellow or the blue?

In all seriousness, Dovi's record at Valencia is pretty abysmal. Even IF MM DNF's the likelihood that Dovi wins this race is pretty low.

I'll say it: that was a nice tribute to Nick Harris at the start of the press conference.
