2021 MotoGP Qatar 2 | Rider Ratings

For years, I’ve been arguing with people about what looks good and what doesn’t. There are certain things I think we can all agree on; like the sight of a cold beer on a sunny day, next to a plate of cheeseburger and chips, which looks fairly orgasmic. Or,... Read more
Official MotoGP Test Results Friday
That’s it for the official preseason MotoGP test. And yesterday was a bit of a washout with only five bikes heading out on the track. The problem with building a race circuit in the desert is, as soon as the wind picks up, you’ve got a sand pit. As... Read more
