    35?:(

    That is sad, no matter who the person and what the circumstances.

    That aside, good to know the season kicks off again this weekend!:)

    Press conference just started. Rossi and Marquez actually shook hands again!

    Saw that yesterday and thought about how much of a handful our Daytona Moto2’s might be - although not comparing myself to a Moto2 rider. Amazing lap for Marquez on slicks in the rain.

    Probably only retirees like @Lozzy and myself watching TV this morning, but heck of a lot of rumour and speculation over JL99's future. Won't spoil anything as Hodgon and Edwards'll be all over it during the weekend. :)

    Yep the whole BT team rabbiting on about poor Lorenzo trying to sell himself to any team that will have him. He’s gone from £12m pa to £5m pa to I’ll ride for free. Jack Millers comment at the pre race interview on Thursday was priceless (excuse the pun). Even Marquez And Dovi laughing at the comment.

    Missed the race but just managed to catch the end of the highlights. One heck of a finish and always good to see a rider use another rider's tactics against them. Most of all nice to actually have some racing again.

    I was watching the race and thought to myself, "This is getting so boring, Practically could write the script...MM gets out in front, wins...Dovi comes in second". Then, miraculously, Dovi puts MM's move on MM and takes it! Glad I didn't skip to the press conference!

    Zarco is one of those riders you just shake your head about.

    Zarco to leave is the nice way of saying 'Zarco sacked'.

    BUT, the guy has a lot to offer someone!

    And what would that be? A brooding French twat who shows flashes of brilliance then gets inside his own head and throws bikes down the road?
