Crazy Joe smashes up a shoulder..
Mother Narure wants to play..
Dovi feels good after a couple days of testing..
Dani is back..
All is quiet around the forum..

I expect Rossi and Marc to have a good battle..
Jorge and Dovi to get to know each other..
Dani and Cal to become familiar on the track as well..

Hello out there.. It is MotoGP time..
Thoughts?

Fp2 was pretty darn good...
Dovi and Jorge are showing really good pace over a good amount of laps..
Good on Smith for giving his team a smile for a Friday evening at the teams "home" track..

gee, I wonder who I will pick for the Top Step on The Podium???

From MotoGP.com

Marquez overshadows all to claim pole


The Repsol Honda rider lapped Le Mans over half a second faster than the rest of the pack to take first place on the grid.
A flying 1:32.246 lap put Spaniard Marc Marquez back on top and 0.503 sec clear of second place finisher Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team). Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) will start from third on the grid after lapping in 1:32.846 - 0.6 sec slower than Marquez.

British rider Cal Crutchlow (CWM-LCR Honda) will start from fourth on the grid after putting in a 1:32.897 lap - just 0.051 sec away from stealing third from Lorenzo.

Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) starts the French GP in fifth position, leaving Brit Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) in sixth. Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) & Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) will start from 7th & 8th respectively.

Danilo Petrucci (Pramac Racing) & Aleix Espargaro (Team Suzuki Ecstar) - who both made the jump up from Q1 - ended up in 9th & 10th place. That leaves Yonny Hernández (Pramac Racing) and Pol Espargaró (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) in 11th & 12th.

Lorenzo looked unstoppable in practice, his race pace is incomprehensible!!! LOL :D

I hope it will be a battle between Marc, Jorge, Dovi and Rossi. The Yamaha's go very good at LeMans, so I think we'll see them up front. Marc is still suffering from his injuries, so the long run may slow him down towards the end.

FP3 and Q2 were good for a watch..
Going to be interesting to see how the weather is when it comes to the race, and what tires thee guys throw on?

Jorge and Dovi have been looking really good..
Honda has been having some WTF moments this weekend, but as usual.. Marc seems to deliver as per he norm..

I am hoping that, like previously this year, Rossi is going at the weekend with Sunday in mind.. Two wins from 8th on the grid so far this year lets me hope that he will be there come race time.

The track seems a bit scetchy, with the cooler temps and a lot of guys keep running off track here and there..

Aleix's high side? Ouch.. We don't see those type of crashes as often as we used too.. And that looked painful..

Should be good.. Go get'em Dovi..

I met with a psychic yesterday. After she told me I am addicted to Ducatis and hot Asian, Arabic, Latin, Italian, and Greek women, she went on to say that Marc Marquez will continue to get faster.

Marc is crazy! That's pretty much all to say! LOL :)

Anxious to see what he says, but the race just finished so it will be a while.

Great result for the winner, he really turned it on.

Marc and his fans should now accepting the facts that he has used all his luck during year 2013 and 2014... Clearly the Yamaha are superior, and ducatis will be more in his sight during the race. Honda's reliability is also another question mark...
