Have you heard the latest from the governing body? They're going to punish riders for not doing promo events. I'm split on this one tbh

I am not, I don't think they should have to promote anything, the racing should be its own promotion!
They are highly skilled professional sportsmen, not display dummies.

Having said all that, they should absolutely at least inter-act with and sign autographs for the fans at the track.

I think that Stoner will be more than happy in a test role.
He was pretty upset with the that the route that the MotoGP category had taken with electronic controls, data sharing and single tyre supplier.
Stoner enjoys developing the bikes, so he is more than happy to turn all the electronics off and tell them what is wrong with the basic motorcycle.

I think you're right in that Stoner is one of the "old school" racers, like my hero Mike "the bike" who came out after a ten year hiatus and still won at the TT dispelling doubt's that he had been out too long and would be rusty !

The prat (for want of a better word) who killed him has a lot to answer for !

Contrary to what you might believe you cannot really run a modern MotoGP bike without electronics. It would be literally suicidal!

Stoner just ran less than most other guys, he did not ride without it.

However way you look at it, it was an aid to performance, he just was able to ride to laptimes using far less help than most other riders.

That's why I'm split. I feel riders should have their freedom to do what they want, but at the same time they need to interact with the fans. I agree an autograph session would be the best. But at the same time fans don't want them to be robots who say yes all the time

The MotoGP season kicks off in Qatar this weekend and if the closing stages of last season are any barometer of what’s to come in 2016 we should be in for a thrill-a-minute battle for the world championship.

Valentino Rossi was narrowly beat out for the title by Yamaha teammate Jorge Lorenzo but the controversial manner in which the fiery Italian lost out will surely spur on the seven-time MotoGP champion in this year’s edition.

Rossi lead the championship from the very first race up until the last, in Valencia, where victory for Lorenzo handed the Spaniard his third world championship title. Rossi started the race at the back of the grid after he was found guilty of kicking Marc Marquez off his bike at the previous race in Sepang. Rossi appealed the penalty but the CAS found against him and the penalty stood. Although Rossi fought his way through the field to finish fourth it was not enough to prevent Lorenzo from clinching the title.

In the weeks building up to the race and subsequent incident in Sepang, Rossi and Marquez had been embroiled in a battle of words where the Italian accused the Spaniard of plotting against him to help compatriot Lorenzo win the title. Rossi called Marquez “the bodyguard of Lorenzo” and said that the Honda rider was “playing with us” after he seemingly aided Lorenzo’s cause at the Australian MotoGP. Marquez did well not to get drawn in and responded by calmly denying the allegations, simply saying “I always give everything”.

The first two meetings of the WSBK championship has been more thrilling than most of last year's MotoGP, in my opinion. Whilst the battle between Yamaha and Honda in MotoGP is a fascinating one, for the most part the outcome is pretty predictable but I'm a big fan nevertheless, bring it on!

Well, the opening round in Qatar certainly provided some thrills. Great to see Ducati up there with Yamaha and Honda.

Agreed, this is going to be a real tussle up front!

Watched the race yesterday. Hope those wings get banned before something goes wrong. Already riders are saying it's hard to follow. And if Marquez is the only non-wingletted (if that is a word) bike, that says a lot not only about Marquez's skill, but also possibly how dominant aero could be this year

And what about the jump start farce in Moto2? They need to sort that out so it don't happen again

Just being browsing the results sheets and noticed Peugeot bikes in Moto3 for Masbou and McPhee. Is this badge engineering?

Just viewed the MotoGP Qatar race. No live tv here this year in the US so
I will be delayed with comments this year. But yes, it looks like we
have the usual good show this year. I would say anyone in the top 5 can
win a race. That double Ducati blast was impressive early in the race.

Yes, Iannone seemed to bang up up Dovi which seemed to unsettle himself causing a crash - not smart riding perhaps?
