Motogp is Almost Here are you Ready

How many of you are so ready for Motogp to begin!

Hi folks, hope your weekend has been a good one. 

Not long now before the Motogp kicks of at Qatar, the wait is almost over.

Just can't wait to especially see this guy in action again.

Three more Sundays and will all be sitting in front of the telly waiting to see what the riders have to offer this year.

Well, Rossi has 114 victories under his belt let's hope that he can make it 115.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that things are going to hot up between the riders.

The race calendar is below to remind you all.

With Maverick Vinales joining the Movistar Yamaha Team and Lorenzo moving to Ducati this team is going to be explosive!

Can't wait to see more of action from these two . Not only from Rossi and Vinales but from all the riders.


And can't wait to see what the other two have to offer!

Motogp and  some roundup comments made from Riders and teams on the web:-

 Miller quote - 'I'd like to stay with Honda because I've put in over the last three years on the bikes that haven't been the best, so I'd like to stay when the bikes are good. But we'll see what the options are'. Autosport

 Dovizioso quote - The gains the Italian manufacturer has made with its 2017 Motogp bike are 'not enough' for it to be competitive everywhere'.

'About the salary, there is a big difference,' he admitted. 'But I don't think the difference is he reality on the track. He won a lot of titles, and to have him in Ducati is quite normal to spare that money.  From my side, I can say it's normal to spend that money to have Jorge at Ducati'.

'I am in the best moment of my career'. Sport Rider Manuel Pecino

Crutchlow quote - ' Do I think I want to be a factory rider again? If the opportunity arises, yes, but it has to be in the right factory and right deal'. Autosport

'At the moment I'm getting faster and I don't feel any different to two years ago'. Autosport

Iannone quote - ' To adapt yourself to the Ducati is a big task, it's a bike that needs to be ridden in a completely different style'. Autosport

Lorenzo quote - ' Its very difficult for me, because they're completely different bikes - they have the opposite way of riding, the opposite way to take the maximum. For now, the Ducati doesn't have corner speed, so you have to brake for longer and be more aggresive with the throttle, more on and off. It's totally different, but little by little I'm understanding it, but I still need more time and more kilometres.

'I don't know about the championship but we can win races. But to win more races we need to improve some of the points that need improvement, and then the result will come together'.

That's just a few comments made and to think about.

And, were you aware that Marquez and Vinales have been rivals since childhood when they used to race each other on minibikes in Spain?

Well, I never knew that!

Anyway, for now, have a good week, ride safe and I'll be back soon.
