Valencia 2.... What's the plan ?

Post by weeksy »

So we're moving into the final 2 rounds with Mir heading the charts and looking for what many would have suspected a completely impossible title win this season if asked before it began. Obviously MM was the main man and Dovi would have been manys second choice, then possibly even Quat for the outside bet, but i doubt if anyone would have gone for Mir

However he is there and he is leading.

What will the weekend bring, who will have picked anything up from race 1 and bring it to the Suzukis ?

Will Lowes stop on the bike this time ?

What'll happen in Moto3.... Anything is probably the actual answer :D

Mir just needs to finish both races, keep calm and finish.

Sam lowes...... I hope he goes out and wins. He’s got the skill and he’s got the bottle. Just needs to do it. Will be bloody brilliant if he does.

All the Yamahas will explode or start from pitlane,or both.

Rins will be the man to beat and Pol will surely try. Hard to look past the Suzukis again.

Ducati will weep into their pasta...unless it rains,then Miller or Zarco may win,if either stay on..

Lowes has had a good year,I hope he holds it together and we get a Portuguese finale.

McPhee,I'm almost scared to hope he'll finish a race at the front.

I thought they were saying Rossi was out and Gerloff was in for the weekend due to CV19 test.

But it seems that's not the case and indeed VR46 is riding the full weekend.

Well 12th isn't going to help Mir at all.... Not Rins behind him !

Morbidelli did well though for Pole.

Flashback to a few years ago when Scott Redding looked odds on to win Moto2 World title in 2013 then broke his arm a few rounds from the end letting Pol in for the title

Some nasty crashes in all the classes. That Marquez highside was very unpleasant looking,my tailbone hurt just watching.

Once again if you look at qualifying,none of the title contenders appear to want it. After you good sir,no,no after you!

Shit news on the Lowes front. I hope it's not as bad as it sounds.

"you can't overtake at Valencia"

"you can't overtake on a Yamaha"

Well I think Frankie may have changed a few minds after THAT last lap!
