Where is Dylan Grey? Great race. Marquez at it again almost took out 2 of the fast guys with that rookie move. Amazing after hitting two guys going in a straight line no less. That was a stupid move.

I personally would like to see KTM do better . It might be that they need a older rider with more development skills or maybe this is just how long it takes for a company to get up to speed.

maybe I feel this way because my MX bikes are KTM but IMO KTM has the best formula for a motorcycle company
I'd like to see them build a street bike that towers over the competition like most of their off road and enduro bikes do with theirs.
Thanks from Blade Runner

Very unprepared.
he forgot the guys name he was talking to on pit row before the race started. hes no dylan thats for sure

Gonna be an AWESOME season!������
rossi domination hahahaha are you remotely serious with that. he always does well at qatar he will get his one win like always but thats it.

I will be very surprised if Rossi wins at all this year. This is not hate on Rossi. I like him. I just don't see it happening. If he wins it will be because of an on track event, rain, crashes or pre-race injury to some of the top riders.

Dylan left, unfortunately. He was great.

Luckily the racing is great without commentators. Steve Day is growing on me...he's a little young and excited but I guess that's not bad. I can get used to him but really bummed Dylan is gone.


Going to be a great season....again.

I agree. Dylan was well spoken and had a good report with the racers. I also enjoyed his one lap reports from the BMW1000RR.

I do not agree. He will win a race based on race craft. We all know that the pupils are faster, but the Doctor still has to have a few lessons up his sleeve.
