Oh well. Will there be any native English speakers left in the top class now?
my take was that ktm was not allowed by red bull because cal has been monster sponsored for ten years

Correct. That was mentioned in the MotoMatters article on the subject.

MotoGP at COTA this year is unlikely to happen. Travel restrictions to/from Europe and local pandemic restrictions make the event all but impossible.


In other news, we're just ten days away from the first race weekend practice sessions at Jerez.

and once it starts we get non stop MotoGP, WSBK, and MotoAmerica races for 17 weekends in a row!!!

(plus hopefully at least a few of the flyway rounds TBD)

(unless everything gets shutdown again which is not unlikely at this point)

I guess they're having a a test session at Jerez in a few days prior to the race weekend. We're pretty damn close to having bikes on the track! I'm excited

Yeah that line really resonates, doesn't it?

Same point Paul Denning makes at the end of this very interesting video they did at the WSBK Barcelona test about the coronavirus countermeasures.

BTW here is the weather forecast for Jerez...

https://www.wunderground.com/forecas...de-la-frontera

This is gonna be so freakin RAD!!!

Hotter than hell
Most intense roadracing bikes on the planet
Testing Wednesday
Busy day Thursday
Practice Friday
Qualify Saturday
Race Sunday

Do it again the very next weekend!

Riders are going to be tested like never before. Crews are going to busting their asses day after day after day in 100 degree weather. While wearing masks. Any mistake, any crash or DNF could be extra costly with so little time to recover. High stress, little rest, can't get sick, whew...

The real question is.... if MM93 wins the championship again and ties Rossi’s 9 championships, will Roozi fans consider this an asterisk season?

If Rossi wins the championship, Rossi fans will consider it an asterisk season. There is nothing normal about the 2020 sporting season and I'm pretty sure no one's Fandom is blinding enough to deny that.

No matter who wins the championship, there will be people who consider this an asterisk season. Sorry Tito Rabat fans.
