He might. If anyone can, he can. He could also be a Stoner and gone from road racing in a year. None of us know.

Dude. You are hilarious with your Medical Marquez Madness. You were saying he had no chance to do anything because of crashing too much. That was ....... five (5) MotoGP championships ago. Hang in there.

Dooooooood -Cuz it's 5 years later and he knows we will still take the bait. . It's got to be hard for them knowing MM is just plain a better racer than Rossi was at any point during his illustrious career. If MM was coming off two torn ACLs, double Tommy John surgery and a cranial transplant, he'd still beat Rossi.

UniBrow looks forward & back:

Dall’Igna on 2018 & 2019

".....we won with both riders, Dovizioso and Lorenzo, which, for a manufacturer, is important. If you can achieve the results with two completely different riding styles, means the bike is quite well-balanced. Because of the results this year, it is important to not do any strange things to the bike....."

If you had a chance to watch testing this morning, they had Neil Spalding commentating for quite some time and it was interesting to listen to what he had to say about Ducati and their program and the changes made with input from Jorge to get the Ducati more agile to side to side movement.

Finally watching the race right now, but I had to turn it off after too many crashes. It just bummed me out too much to see so many people go down.
