I agree with what has been said before, the races are boring to watch no doubt. No one even comes close to beating Marquez. Even if some one else leads Marquez will just play with them until the last flew laps and then fly past them. It's so effortless with him on that bike. Boring to watch and annoying when the announcers repeat marc marquez 100s of time. They love saying that name!

WAS REALLY HOPING Dovizioso would hold that spot....since the conditions were different. Nope. Like others, it's getting boring to watch (like most every year), but I still watch it nonetheless.

Marquez is a beast. Period. I'm finding the season far from boring.... It's funny watching everyone else trying to attempt to keep up with the new kid on the block.

Aliens vs. the Predator....

The big thing that upsets me is that Jorge apparently is taking this season off. He has placed well in one race? Everyone else just kinda passes him with ease and then gap him? Seriously Jorge take your head out of your it's not a hat.

Meh, it may seem that way, but there is more that goes on behind the scenes that people fail to realize. Money & the bike is the main ones in this case.

The last race he admitted he just wasn't comfortable on the bike and didn't want to crash like last time. He released a statement claiming talking more in depth about this season.

I feel like he probably hasn't gotten comfortable on the tires and can't push it. He has complained a lot about them and if the tires aren't working for you then you're screwed. Link to the statement? Id like to read it.

Last race was all over the place with a Ducati on the podium and the slowest bike on the grid beating Jorge Lorenzo.

Could be that MM has yet to have that big injury crash that makes you think about how you ride. Right now, he's riding over the limit of the bike and it's working for him. Most of the other racers were super aggressive in their younger years and have become level headed as they age.

Anyone heard anything about who is going to Suzuki? I would like Jorge or dani to go to Suzuki. Try and do what Rossi did to Yamaha.

Also Rossi signed 2 more years with Yamaha.

Playing catch up right now. Watched 8 and now watching 9. Can't believe, well kind of, that Bradl has dropped so many spots after that start.

While watching Pedrosa trail Marquez you can obviously see the different skill level. Both on the same bikes. Marquez is mean on the brakes. I'd give my left one to have half the talent.
