MotoGP 2013.

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

The thread of the year for fans of MotoGP. (aka: a real motorsport.)

It's Sunday 7th April 2013 and we're only hours away from the first race of the new season in Doha, Qatar, somewhere in the desert. I'll be here at 3 in the morning on Monday to watch it live, very, very drunk.

Here are some predictions from my crystal bollock:

Marquez stays upright.

It's a Repsol 1/2.

Lorenzo goes ballistic and drowns himself during a post-race stunt.

Rossi says it was very funny and accepts 3rd.

Later in the season:

Edwards is the first CRT to win a race.

Stoner takes up commentating and complains that the microphones aren't quite what he expected and make him sound whiny.

Rossendale Borough Council consider plans to build an international racing circuit but insists on traffic-calming measures and traffic lights on the straights.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

I cannot make any predictions as its impossible to call. Just hop Cald does well and wonder how well he would go on a works machine? Now settled down for an afternoon of spoilt pleasure BSB from Brands and later Moto Gp.
F1 sucks

True. We've been mulling (arguing) for a week now. I'm missing something with Pedrosa, I'm sure I am.

But - I'm getting pressured for picks as I type and they have to be in fairly soon (plus I'm doing the Fanzone picks thingy on the website and I'm making a very slight change for that.)

Beers. Check.

Pizza. Check.

Whatever happens, this race is going to be something else.

Johnny! Johnny! Johnny! Over here.

Look, check this out:

Race: Noun
A competition between runners, horses, vehicles, boats, etc., to see which is the fastest in covering a set course.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

Wow! What a race. Brilliant by Rossi as its so difficult to catch up like he did, He was lapping at times faster than Jorge. What a race it would have being if he had got away with him. Watching out race both works Honda riders had me on the edge of my seat. A great ride by Cal against the factory machines. Two weeks to go to Austin, the circuit seems to suit the faster Hondas,so we shall see.
Why do people watch F! when they can watch races like this

Re: MotoGP 2013.

Settling down to a unhealthy breakfast, only one of the week and watching WSB and later BSB from Thruxton. Just hope the supersports race is as good as normal as usually its the best race of the day. Next week Moto GP is from Austin in Texas can hardly wait. Must find out what time its on due to the time difference. Lagun Seca is usually on around midnight our time.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

That's the one that I cannot miss come hell or high water. I've seen the on-board stuff of the Austin circuit and it looks absolutely breathtaking. I can't wait to see how the riders deal with it.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

Not since Jarno Sarinaan has such a rider made such an impact of the GP scene as Marc Marquez. An amazing ride at Austin on Sunday. Looks like Pedrosa will always be the Bridesmaid and not the Bride. I was lucky enough to see the great Sarinaan ride at Silverstone, simply awesome. Looking forward to the next one at Jerez. Lets hope the Yamahas are more suited to the circuit.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

I've neglected the thread. Apologies.

We partied hard for the Austin race, it was beautifully timed for us, and then Iwent on a bender for a couple of days.

Yes, yes, yes. Marquez.

Tonight I expect great things of Lorenzo - he will not be happy one little bit - but of course, my heart wants Marquez to win.

Re: MotoGP 2013.

HA! I'd just pressed 'send' and I got a call from buddy who's watching it live at his house (I cannot, too tucked up, absolutely no chance of escape from this job at the moment) and I cannot wait to see this race tomorrow.
