I like what Crutchlow said about the incident. He said he wasn't going to be politically correct like the other riders, like Cal could be politically correct if he tried, and said Fenati should be given a permanent ban from racing.

That being said, and Fenati back in the paddock next year, I'd love to see Crutchlow take Fenati out behind the garage for a man to boy talk ... if you get what I mean. My money's on Crutchlow. There's zero doubt in my mind that Crutchlow can hold his own in a fight.

Petrucci ahead of Dovi again
Bagnaia improved a lot....could be worth watching

More data. He's been a support test rider for Suzuki. During testing most manufacturers bring their test riders if they can to run 3 bikes instead of just the main 2.

Seriously? He's contracted with both?? That's gonna be some busy weekends for him. I assume Moto-E is running at all the events? That will pack up the schedule a bit more having an extra class each weekend.

1) Moto-E is only going to have 4 or 5 rounds, all of them in Europe.... Maybe he'll enter some of the America/Asian rounds as a wild card on the KTM?

2) Nakagami at the top of the charts? Who would have guessed that?

3) looks like Jorge is picking up pretty quickly on the "unrideable" for him RCV - this might get entertaining quickly inside the Honda garage.

4) Vinales says he has a top bike now, but VR says its no better than a 5th place bike? - might be the year that the lead dog switches at Yamaha, or else #46 is just starting the head games early?

If Rossi really said that, I'm interpreting that as in "he's no better than a 5th place".

Yamaha just needs to tear off the band-aid. Vinales is the future as he's like 40 years younger. They need to give that kid what he needs to be successful and let Rossi make do with the bike's development as it is.

This is a classic sports case of paying the superstar and mortgaging a teams future/young talent in order to 'pay back' the old timer. The Lakers did it with Kobe for example.
