DHL is amazing. I just bought a set of leathers from England. Two days from point of origin (Birmingham) to SF.

Yes. And Mike Jones may get to ride Bautista's bike at PI for the Ángel Nieto Team.

I think it has something to do with the time of day Dorna wants MotoGP sessions shown on live TV in Europe.

If I recall correctly, it’s that the GP riders were complaining about the rubber left on the track after Moto2.

Márquez: his winning secret

".....Do you think you could save so many front slides if you didn’t do dirt track?

No, I don’t think so. I started dirt track and motocross when I was five years old. With dirt track and especially motocross maybe you can save three or four crashes in one lap. And if you do crash, it’s okay because you just pick up the bike and continue and then you can find the limit
....."
