Argentine motogp.

« on: April 08, 2018, 09:00:08 PM »
If you didnt catch it on BT sport, watch the race highlights on Monday night on terrestrial tv. Probably the most controversial motogp race ever screened.

Crutchlow is the real deal. No hype.

Talk about Red Mist.

Rossi is milking it for all he's worth.

It's going to be an interesting week or so.

Will Lorenzo quit in America ? He's not even make a good blood biker right now.

Lorenzo is not in his "happy place".

When riders who have fallen and remounted are still finishing ahead of you. Your days are numbered.

Whilst, as a Rossi fan, I can't condone Marquez actions. Zarco, who I am a fan of, performed similar exit surgery on poor Danni Pedrosa.

The fact the controversy commenced even before the race started just highlighted this race, as the talking point for some time.

I feel the big losers in all the decisions and controversy were Pedrosa, Rossi and Miller. None through any fault of their own.

I look forward to the race in 167 days time. 8)

Not quite as bad as Marquez but he certainly was in a "no prisoners" mood. He's very good, isn't he.

I havn't had chance to catch up and watch the race yet, but ive seen the bit they keep showing on social media ie Marquez apparently barging Rossi off the track onto the grass.  I can honestly say I havn't seen anything like that before in GP Racing.
I thought there was a bit of unwritten rule you don't ride like that,however competitive you are ;)
From what I saw Marquez's walk to the pits/garage to apologize didn't go down well, there was nearly a Riot :(

They've got it from so many angles now on MotoGP. It was totally unacceptable from every angle. Marquez was out of his head but surely we can understand this given what went on before, he rescued the stall beautifully, if illegally, the two officials were not strong enough.

I loved the BBC news version of the pit garage visit.
They described Marquez as "ushered away".
The reality was, Uchio, Rossis buddy, told Marquez to "**** off!".

This is the only race I ever know of one rider, receiving three penalty rulings against him in a single race!

It's worth watching again is that.

I like the mock up, but I'm not sure that Marquez was actually trying to 'Dodgem'!

If he was, he failed a number of times.
I wonder if further similar incidents took place amongst back markers, when the focus was on the leaders.
