Yes, Marquez once again makes the track his own. The Doctor back at the front where he belongs. Ducatis though, worryingly not having the race pace

I think he needs one to deal with his own head problems let alone dealing with MM. Supreme clockwork precision riding one race and then he falls off a cliff, destroying his front tyre in those opening laps was a rookie mistake. As you say great to the old guy keeping his end up!

Good to see Dovi have the win in front of Lorenzo, a good race with a fair bit of chopping and changing right to the end. Marquez kept his cool and rode fair.
It's going to be "interesting" to see who will be "top dog" at Honda next season and who will fill Vali's boots ?

Great race, enjoyed it thoroughly!

I just have a feeling that Rossi might well call it a day at the end of this season !
The Honda camp is going to be "interesting" to watch next year as they are both wanting to be "top dog"

You think so Gordon, after he signed a two year extension in March?

He's had enough?


Marquez is never going to lie down easily, Honda is going to be a rough place next year.

Honda couldn't have got more contrasting styles between their two riders, its going to get interesting.

Great win by Dovi, holding off multiple world champions in Lorenzo, Rossi and Marquez. May be a bit too late for the title, but shows why he is a top class rider. Also good to see Cal up there fighting too

Ah, I see the mistake now!
Seriously though, it sounds like a good life, great part of Spain, and then to have MotoGP testing close by is just the icing on the cake.

Well done on organizing a good life, no judgement from me at all.

Mostly I know when the WSB and BSB are testing at my nearest track (Almeria) and it's only about a 40 min drive from our place, however the MotoGP boys normally test at Valencia that takes up to 4 hrs depending on the traffic.
What does happen is that sometimes a MotoGP team will hire Almeria for a couple of days and it's not announced, but as it's close to me I drive up and take a look anyway and take pot luck.
I have seen several top riders there over the years and I even "happened" on BMW testing a MotoGP bike that never came to fruition

So there was truth in the rumour that BMW were thinking of going to MotoGP when they dropped out of WSBK in 2013!
I didn't realize they had actually gone testing.
BMW always strenuously denied they were even thinking about MotoGP, got lucky that day. Did they let you get close or were they in full security mode?
