MotoGP Portimão 2022 Rider Ratings
After a ton of wet practice and iffy conditions in qualifying, the Portuguese Grand Prix got underway in reasonably good conditions; it wasn’t as sunny as it’s supposed to be in the Algarve, but it was dry. Thanks to Jack Miller wiping Joan Mir out in a over-ambitious out-braking... Read more
MotoGP COTA 2022 | Rider Ratings
It looked as though it was going to be a Ducati lockout after the Italian manufacturer bagged the top five grid slots in qualifying, and then proceeded to have their riders run away with the race. That was until a couple of pesky Suzuki riders spoiled the party. It... Read more
Marc Marquez WILL return to MotoGP this weekend.
After missing the last two MotoGP races thanks to a frankly horrifying crash in Indonesia, Repsol Honda have just, this morning, announced that the eight-time-world champ Marc Marquez will be returning for the MotoGP round in Austin, this weekend. After completing a ‘conservative treatment plan’ (whatever that means) Marquez’s... Read more
MotoGP Argentina 2022 | Rider Ratings
I really like the shape the 2022 MotoGP season is taking. You’ve got Suzuki leading the Teams Championship, Ducati leading the Manufacturers Championship and now, after the latest round in Argentina, an Aprilia rider leading the Riders Championship. That rider is Aleix Espargaro. He was one of three Spaniards... Read more
Marc Marquez to miss the MotoGP of Argentina
After one of the biggest highsides you’re ever likely to see during the warm up session of the Indonesian GP, and the subsequent bang on the head causing his diplopia* to flare up again, doctors have decided it’s best for Marc Marquez to sit the next round of the... Read more
The biggest crash I’ve ever seen, and why it happened.
I’ve seen some whopping crashes in my time, but MM93’s monster 100mph highside in yesterday’s MotoGP warmup session might have been the biggest crash I have ever seen. And it came after a bit of a run of crashes. I’m not talking about his run of crashes spanning the... Read more
MotoGP Indonesia 2022 | Rider Ratings
As per last year’s WSBK race at the new Pertamina Mandalika Street Circuit in Indonesia, yesterday’s MotoGP race was delayed, delayed and delayed again, thanks to biblical levels of rainfall. I suppose that’s what happens when you build a race track next to a rain forest. Anyway, a shortened... Read more
The difference between dangerous riding and a committed overtake.
When you’re racing a motorbike the plan is to get in front of as many people as you can. That’s the same whatever level you’re racing at. In fact the plan is to get in front of them all, if possible. But is the plan to get in front... Read more
MotoGP Qatar 2022 | Rider Ratings
The 2022 MotoGP season kicked off at Qatar yesterday, and it kicked off in style. I don’t think there is a MotoGP fan in the world that could have predicted the outcome. World Champions struggling to get in the top ten, season favourites wiping each other out, and a... Read more
MotoGP Qatar ’22 | Schedule
The worst of winter has passed and there’s a little bit of daylight outside office hours, but the best thing about the fact that it’s nearly spring, is that MotoGP is, once again, upon us. We’ve all got our predictions about who’s going be at the front, which bikes... Read more
Why aren’t Kawasaki in MotoGP anymore?
The 2022 MotoGP season starts in less than a week, and I’m well excited about it. In fact I’m probably more excited about it than I’ve been about anything in quite a while. And so are all my mates (both of them), who simply refuse to talk about anything... Read more
MotoGP Betting Odds 2022 | Fact or Fiction
I don’t consider myself as much of a gambling man but I am into MotoGP in a fairly big way so, with less than a week until the first round of the 2022 season, I thought I’d see if I could find some betting odds, for the 2022 MotoGP... Read more
