"Well of course it's mcphee" I said when they were discussing who it was.

On another note, has Suzi had recent work? She looks bizarre today
I reckon she'd come straight to the studio from an all night 80's disco. She appears to be sporting a Mullet! :D :D

Can you imagine if before the season you'd have said

"by the end of the season, it would be dominated by Suzukis, the Ducati will be nowhere, neither will the Yamahas or the Hondas".... Everyone would have laughed at you. But the reality is, MM, Rossi, Quat, Dovi, Vinales ...Absolutely nowhere, again and again and again.

It's been just an utterly bonkers season really.

You can usually rely on Cal! :D :D

Shout out to Nakagami though, I know Cal is completely beaten up, but Nakagami has done really well for LCR IMO.

I'd like to see it all go to the Portimao round to settle all 3 classes.

Same here. We always have a houseful here for every race. And I've planned a BBQ after the last round :)

John McP :( :roll:

Sam L ffs

Mir,this lad runs deep. I loved his comments when asked about 'the pressure'. Kudos to Him and the 'little' Suzuki factory.

Woe upon woe for Yamaha. With all their engines now having big miles on the clock,they have the unenviable choice of crossing their fingers or having all their riders start from the arse of the grid.

I idly wonder if Maverick wishes he'd stayed at Suzook. :lol:

Yamaha are gonna needs more bags for all the dropped bollocks this weekend. Public nightmare for them as a factory.

Cant believe Suzuki are 1st and 3rd in the title with 2 to go and Yamaha a total mess. I'm now wishing for a suzuki 1-2. They come across as a decent team/personnel too.

As they say across the drink
Allez Les Bleus!

KTM had another good result too

It barely raised a remark from the commentary team and I haven't heard any reason since. There was no big,obvious pointers such as smoke or drama,just him rolling to a stop.

Google says...
“ For me personally it is very complicated because today I needed to do the race. I needed to stay on top of the bike and do the 27 laps to understand how to be strong next week. But above all for me, for finishing a degree. I was just there trying to understand which was the best way to go but unfortunately the bike stopped because I had problems with the electronics but the engine didn't break. But of all motorcycles I have had to stop ".
