Moto GP 2013
Agreed Lorenzo was amazing.
It looks to me like Marquez is doing well simply because he’s prepared to take risks. Lorenzo was able to just ‘turn-on-the-style’ and keep ahead of Marquez despite his risky behaviour.
Marquez always seems just a little bit more ‘on-the-edge’ than Lorenzo 8)
I’d still love to be able to ride half as well as either of them!!Posted 4 years ago
I think Marquez could be faster if Lorenzo wasn’t in the way, he seems to be able to carry more mid corner speed, but can’t use it when Lorenzo is in front. It is a great skill though to ride with a probably faster rider behind you, keep it so precise and not make any mistakes. That has always been his style but Marquez has just pushed him a bit further and he really has become a master at it.Posted 4 years agob rMember
Probably give Jerry a good reason to retire now, as it doesn’t look like Rossi is going to.Posted 4 years ago
Yep, that was a hell of a lap from Marquez. Lorenzo was giving it some fighting talk though re the engine problems he said he was having.
Saddest thing was seeing how gutted Redding was. He just looked utterly hacked off with it all. Can’t see him doing anything tomorrow. Why risk his first GP test. Great to see Rea so high up as well, and Mcphee is announcing his new deal tonight / tomorrow.Posted 4 years agoJAGSubscriber
Well done to everyone, what an amazing final race!
Lorenzo; did what he could to win the championship – but it didn’t work out…
Pedrosa; did what he could to ensure he gets a ride next year and for a few more years…
Marquez; rode an incredibly mature race and deserves to be World Champion! 8)
What a season. More ups and downs than all the F1 coverage for the last 5 years 😀Posted 4 years ago
Just caught up with all 3 races. As Ryder said on Eurosport, that was the most aggressive GP race ever. Well at least for the first 12 laps or so. Brilliant to watch; I thought Dani was on a bonus to take out Jorge, but brilliant passing and re-passing for what seemed like corner after corner.
I still remember what a moron Marquez could be at times through his 125 and moto2 career, but there’s no doubting his talent on the bike. I thought he was going to try to re-pass Pedrosa, and not doing so (as well as letting Jorge & Dani fight it out) was probably the best decision he’s made to date.
Interesting to hear Marquez wonder whether the title had come “too soon” in the interview.
Biggest disappointment was that’s the end of Eurosport coverage. I’ve been watching it for about 15 years and I won’t be swapping to BT or paying a kings’ ransom for the DORNA online “pass”. Nice “montage” at the end of the show, but surprisingly little said. Wasn’t sure if that meant Moody & Ryder (and Spalders) were off to BT maybe as such as small song and dance made.

What a race, that was serious heart in mouth stuff, you get the feeling Lorenzo was the man today but damn Dani was aggressive. Seriously, why doesn’t he go for it like that every race! Also I miss burnouts, stick the engine rule up your arse!!
^ Yep gutted about the coverage going pay per view, one less thing to watch on TV. ^Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber

Pedrosa …..why you dont ride like that every race of the season
Because his long term future is under threat?
He has sooo much talent – shame he’s usually a bit reticent about mixing it.
Great season, nice to see Bradders doing well and fingers crossed for Cal next year.
Rossi & Burgess?Posted 4 years ago
I genuinely have no idea what’s gone on there.
Perhaps JB suggested that Vale should pack it in, as he’s obviously not as good as he used to be? 🙂
Yes Pedrosa will be the best rider to never win a world championship
There are a lot of brilliant riders who never won the World Chamioship on 500’s or MotoGp, Melandri springs to mind, never came together for him, Pedrosa is the rider with the best kit that has never won. (Well so far)
Maybe to soon for Marquez, 20 yrs old and top of the world, I hope he keeps it together, there are a lot of prodigious talents in a lot of sports who have fallen foul of such achievements at an early age.
Congratulations to Maverick Vinales for getting the Moto3 crown. Great name 😆Posted 4 years ago
