Criville > Doohan any day

Doesn't matter what it is...MotoGP, moto2, moto3, wsb, wss, bsb, IOM, Dakar, stk 1000 etc I'll watch it.

I'm one of those sad bastards that watches all the practice and qualifying sessions as well.

Him and Billy Redmayne running up the front at the Manx GP last year. Welp.

Been to every British Motorbike Grand prix since 1993 and apparently I went to one in the mid 80s when I was only 6 months old too. Used to be into WSBK too but haven't been for 15-20 years or so - ie since the Foggy days.

Watch every Moto GP live and it's as good now as it's ever been. They're true heroes.

So yeah, I'm a reasonable fan. :)

Agree about the standard of MotoGP, last season and the start of this year it's been excellent. Having said that I'm not a huge fan of Lorenzo or Marquez so crossing my fingers that Vinales, Rins et al step up to the plate as regular challengers soon.

Have you ever been to an overseas Grand Prix? Always wanted to see Rossi race in Italy so I've probably only got 3 chances left!

I used to ride a PW80 when I was twelve or so.

That's all I've got to add to this thread.

Oh, and the first day I got it I took it over the park, revved it up and skidded shit all up my new Nike coat.

I don't really care who wins these days. Lorenzo, Marquez, Rossi et al are all class so I'm happy regardless of the result. I do miss Casey Stoner though. :-(

No I've not been abroad for a MotoGP race (though I have been to several F1 races abroad) but I do fancy Brno one day. It's not too far from Bratislava if I remember correctly. Yeah, Mugello would be great fun - superb circuit and beautiful part of the world too.

I can't imagine Lib using the phrase "sheer intellectual numbness".

Is Ian feeding him lines now?

The jokes on him. You don't even get to watch it - just listen on the radio and follow live timing.

I can't warm to Dunlop; he is mighty quick, but he comes across as bland and cold.

What happened to Guy Martin this year, he hung up his helmet?

Traded it in for a cycling version. He's riding the Tour Divide, a 4500km mountain bike race in the Rockies so he's giving the tt a miss.

At the British MotoGP at Silverstone today, just trying to get out of the car park. That was a hell of a race and definitely worth watching if anyone gets a chance.

Agreed, think it's been an excellent season all round really. 7 different winners in 7 races is impressive, could do with Dani or Dovi winning next to keep the run going! Don't think that'll be the last time we see Vinales on the top step either. Looked like a MotoGP winner since his first ride on the 125, but to get the win on the Suzuki is a stunning effort :bravo:

He's clearly a class act, he's been on the back of the Hondas, Yamahas and Ducatis all season so it was only a matter of time before he finally broke them. It seems that Cal has also found his mojo too - he beat Rossi and Marquez in a straight fight in the dry today, and on a weaker bike. Impressive stuff.
