So,

Who is watching this weekend and what are your overall predictions?
Ducs are looking good, not sure if good enough to beat the Yams but its one of their best tracks.
Remember, not on FOX, have to order beIN Sports to get the live feed.
Cheers, hopefully there are a few fans in here.
I know Levigarrett is one.

Tough call man...

1 Lorenzo
2 Rossi
3 Iannone or Maverick
4 Dovizioso


Marquez DNF (Falls because eating too much of Rossi's dust)

I'd say at least one of the ducs will make it on to the podium most likely Iannone if not BOTH! Rossi will be too busy battling it out with Marquez since he's already emotionally invested so much in to their feud, so no 1st place for him this year. Lorenzo will just cruise right by as everyone is too busy dealing with their own agenda. Tire management will play a big role.

Marquez will fall. #Endofstory

Yes sir! I'll by somewhere between California and Lihue when the race is happening but I have the video pass so I'll watch as soon as I land. I think Lorenzo has to be the favorite for the championship once again. I do however thing one of the Ducati's can win Qatar. The track suits the machine. I predict a Yamaha victory (I'll hold my nose if its Rossi but he's capable) and Ducati podium. Crazy Joe or Dovi are capable of getting on the podium if not both.

Redding may also surprise. This will be an interesting season. With a new control tire and ECU (only Ducati and Zook having any experience with it) we'll see some mixed results I think.

I got up this morning early to watch the press conference. Lorenzo is focused as usual. I think he's going to be on point.

Jorge is always focused, it's pretty impressive honestly, how little distracts him from his goal. I will go out of my way and say unless they were sandbagging, the factory machines won't beat one or both of the Pramac bikes.
The GP15 looks well sorted out.

I'm not going to spoil it for those that have yet to see it. It was a thriller for sure.

Thread restart +1 year!

I'm not sure what I am more surprised by, Marquez not going down at all so far this weekend (oh beware fellow riders if he is maturing) or that 3 of the top 4 qualifiers were "privateer" teams, one on a 2 year old bike!

Looking forward to the race today.

Moto2 will be a closely fought campaign as well, usually I watch Moto3 and MotoGP and skip Moto2 but so many kids graduated to the mid-class, and a few coming back from the top class, will make this year a huge talent pool.

Good race, but I feel like Marc is in ominous form already. Dovi will have to work hard this year to keep up with him. Also, lots of non factory teams up at the sharp end.
Argentina will tell a lot, Austin not so much because its pretty much made for the Honda.

Dovi said that he is worried, because Marquez fought with him to the finish line on a track that fits better for Ducati. Imagine those tracks where Honda fits better.
