That is sweet!! He's going to be a wild man out there this year. Thanks for posting.

I like the Pata Hondas in WSBK too. They are very cool.

Funny thing is Marquez is a head taller than Pedrobot too.

Both will be doing some preseason testing at Austin March 12-14.

Certainly taking advantage of another door opened with the testing rules and a sponser who has always laid out the dough for him to do as much of it as possible. Did so much in Moto2 they had to restrict it for others. All part of building up the next superstar, he needs to stay the youngest to do this or that for a while, I guess. Certainly Marquez has held up his end of the deal, kid is fast for sure and will be exiting to watch.

Other funny thing, this test in Austin was booked by one of the US CRT wildcard teams (GPtech), and HRC just joined in on it. But such is the euphoria around MM, that motogp's webpage only shows this date as an HRC test, no mention that the US CRT team will be there too. Bit lame considering, but go figure, its been transparent enough, so why bother carring about it anymore.

The other US CRT entry, Attack Performance signed up Blake Young and may do some testing in Feb at Austin as well. I like that the CRTs gave these teams something attainable to go put some guys out there to collect some GP points with last year. With three rounds here now, it should be good oportunity to get some more visiblity this year. Unless of course their not even shown on TV or otherwise mentioned.
Experience is not something you get until just after you needed it.

The colors I do like. Fresh look is good. The stripes on the tail look a bit funy though. I too want to see how Markez goes this year.
