Watched some of today's testing. Only interesting parts were Iker Lecuona getting real comfortable on the KTM and Marc Marquez highsiding early in Turn 13. MM was uninjured but the bike was a yard sale. Marc spent some time in the gravel trap picking up various pieces he could then stash with the bike and out of public view. Yamaha team spotters outside Turn 13 immediately had their cameras out to take pics of whatever HRC bits they could see.

As usual, there were several crashes but no injuries when I stopped watching. Nothing radical on the few new new bikes that were on track. I guess Gigi is waiting until later to bring out his subterfuge mods.

Ya gotta wonder. One of those bad crashes can easily cost $50-100k. But I guess that's the price of having the best rider in the world on your team. MM could get a ride tomorrow from any manufacturer.

The forks, believe it or not, are around $100k.

The Brembo calipers and the rotors are way over $10k.

The FIM has capped the price of the front brake kit at €70 000 (excluding taxes), including three pairs of calipers, three cylinders, 10 carbon discs, and 28 pads. If a team needs more pieces to complete the season, they have to buy them separately.

Zarco should be out of MotoGP. Definitely the biggest bitch in the paddock by throwing shade at Borenzo and then at Ducati/Avintia.

Welcome to the club. You still get a membership card but you missed out on the steak knives because you weren't an early adopter.

I like Zarco solely for the fact that he’s not Italian or Spanish.

Seems reasonable. I just checked the pricing on Bugatti Veyron tires, since, ya' know, they are coming out with a new supercar and I figured I could pick up a Veyron for cheap, like 1.5m or 2m or so.

Anyway, the tires are $30K. To mount them is $70K. And they can only be mounted in France. So there is that little ditty to the get the car there. I love Paris, so I would probably drive to get it serviced.
