Would certainly put Marq up front but since his injury he aint had time to set his bike up just right yet plus that injury still along way from full recovery, Rossi as we all know and love has his bike fully set up, new leathers and lid and looks like he emans business!

I don’t love Rossi , he’s a nob .

Is it still only available on BT Sport? I'm pretty sure last season I saw some highlight races but cannot remember which channel the highlights were on, maybe channel 5? Might be a good opportunity to claim my three free months of BT Sport from EE if that's still a thing! Especially now the F1 is only being shown on Sky :evil:

Aye last year they were on Channel 5.

I pay for the MotoGp.com subscription which is pricey (even more so due to weak £ to € rates but we won't go into that) but has all the old races on and I put away a tenner a race in the year to pay for it :lol:

I don't know much about these things so humour me. It seems the Italians and Spanish have a lot of success in bike racing, what are the reasons for that?

The super short answer is they have amazing feeder classes that spot talent from a young age and then nurture those kids up through the classes

it's the same with the American riders, start them on dirt tracks and then you end up with randy Mamola and Kenny Roberts etc :)
