Just looked at the news and Jorge's trail of tears....Jesus Christ, what happened to this guy? Marquez coming in to the big leagues and stealing the Crown Jorge thought he rightfully usurped from Rossi just completely mindfucked him forever. Jorge is gonna be an old man, beaten, broken, wandering the streets of Barcelona destitute, muttering to himself about Valentino and Marc. Unbelievable. It's fucking Turn One, in MotoGP. You should expect at least a little nudge from the guy's knee or elbow. That was the cleanest Turn One of a motogp race I can remember in some time. Jorge is gonna have a miserable time next year. Prediction: he'll either end his contract early after one year, otherwise if he finishes both years he'll retire from the sport completely broken by Marc Marquez.

Once again Marquez proves he's the only alien on the grid now. Who can challenge him for the title? No one on the grid today. Peco? Bezechi? Martin? Who knows.....

Jorge will be Jorge, although blaming MM for this has to be a new level for him. Dude can't make turn one offline, he needs some help. Next year should be goooooood.

Yeah he did.. looking at this again... MM was not wide yet when JLo started to slide.

@DonJigweed - Some funny stuff in that post!

Mm block passed him and made them both brake too late. MM went off track. JL thought he could squeeze under MM, but the tires had other ideas.

I was just starting to like him, and then he says/does something that reminds me what an insufferable douchecanoe he is.

If Lorenzo had got his usual blazing start he wouldn't have been in that spot. Marquez cutting across a ton of other people on the first turn to the point that he runs off the outside of the curbs is hairball but its not like anyone would expect less than hairball moves from Marquez.

Great race. Now I'm even more bummed that Iannone is leaving Suzuki. A bit more hp and the Maniac and Rins would be a formidable team. Both of them were able to make ground on MM and AD in the first three sectors.

Phillip Island is going to be even more amazeballs this year.

Cool to see Binder pick up the win in Moto2. Heading into the "KTM" part of the Moto2 schedule now. Should be fun.

Turn one antics aside, watch the replay of Dovi exiting turn 1. It was like his Duc was on steroids on that exit. I can't believe how much power that Duc puts to the ground.

Amen, brother.

Ya' gotta love the source for the sour grapes. This is the queen of kamikaze starts for a lot of years. Honestly, I have been pretty surprised that JLO hasn't had a bunch of collisions at the starts. (Let us not forget that some dude named Vale use to be the kamikaze kid.)

Lorenzo needs to get his head straight before next year, or his career will end shortly there after.

After seeing the video again, and again... Marc wasn't remotely close to Lorenzo... 6-8 feet away and Lorenzo was spinning up before Marc went off track... he had plenty of space to react.

It's the same old Lorenzoaf. Rossi got all the personality in MotoGP, MM got huge talent, and Lorenzo got terminal attitude. If he couldn't ride as well as he does, he would be homeless.

The past Borenzo years at Yamaha and even Ducati will seem like Sesame Street.

Seriously though... The common denominator in the dysfunctional team harmony is emerging as Borenzo.
Yamaha = Static with Vale
Ducati = Static with Dovi
Honda = Static with WinOrBin

I get Vale and WinOrBin, but Dovi has been the perennial "Nice Guy" on the track.
