That is the sign of a true sportsman and I have a new found respect for Leon Haslam for that display of sportsmanship and bravery.

I'd prefer much closer point distance between these two however I am going to keep my fingers crossed for Dovi. Chances are slim but still there, it's on Marquez to not loose it, the pressure may be too much, who knows.

I really, really hope that Dovi could carry this momentum for the next season, anyone who makes Marequez life harder (fair and square) has my unconditional backing. And 93 golden run will finally come to an end at some stage which I really look forward to. He's an unbelievable rider dont make me wrong, but I still don't like him and all his smug Honda minions around him.

valenica is a start stop circuit, the hardest breaking one on the calendar, one where the duke would prob suffer the most, i cant see dovi winning there even if mm does fall off, i hope im wrong, i want dovi to win..

Rossi or Ianone to "accidently" wipe out Marquez and the other riders to "let" Dovi by to win the race.


Can one dare to dream that this could happen??

Dovi only qualifying in 9th for the race.
Iannone in 3rd though,he could possibly wipe out MM into the 1st corner.

I wonder how much Ducati threw into the brown envelope they slipped into his back pocket after qualifying today then?

And will that sulky biatch Lorenzo do team orders and let Dovi past?

Barring about 5 people including Marquez falling off there’s little chance of dovisioso winning the race without rain. 27 crashes this season for Marquez - he seems to bounce brilliantly. Others have had seasons wiped out by having 1!

Im kinda thinking that it might possibly be a day like it was on the final day/race in the BSB there last month.
Nobody saw that comming,not even Leon Haslam or Shakey.


Could it really happen tomorrow in the final MotoGP race?

I think its hillarious how lads think guys will help out Dovi.
Fact is other than Ducati riders no-one else gives a shit.
Iannone owes Ducati nothing as does Zarco.
Rossi is gonna look after himself as usual,not that he'll be anywhere near MM once the flag drops.
Do ye really believe if Rossi was leading with Dovi in 2nd with Marquez out that he'd let Dovi win?
Would he fuck,sure that would make his disasterous time with Ducati look worse.
Also are ye not forgetting the other Honda riders?
Anyway,as I said before,heres to a good clean race and may the best man win cos they both deserve it.
