not GP but exciting news nonetheless. yamaha is pressuring lorenzo and vale to do the suzuka 8 hours in light of casey stoner announcing that he'll be participating with the honda team.

Yamaha wants Rossi and Lorenzo to race Suzuka 8 Hours | Sport Rider

"The physical toll it inflicts on each rider lasts for days. Rossi reportedly told Edwards that he wanted to come back and win the 2001 event (after crashing while leading the 2000 race and costing the team a chance at victory) so that he wouldn’t be obliged to race in the event ever again—and he (as well as most other Grand Prix riders) now avoid the race like the plague."

LOL

Podium

1 - Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team)
2 - Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team)
3 - Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP)

The battle today was really for second ... once Marquez seized the lead nobody else stood a chance.

Notes :

*Ducati Team is looking better by the day ... another podium, another great team performance.
*Rossi still on top of the points standings - I was hoping desperately that he would pull a second place finish but I think he'll be happy with another podium finish regardless
*those 2500 frame-per-second cameras are astonishing

Thoughts everybody?

Both races have been pretty good so far the Ducati/Yamaha back and forth makes the races a lot more fun to watch, it will be interesting to see if they can reel in MM next week and make it a 3 way race.
Also was surprised both Ducati’s ran out of gas at the end of the race.

Ducati fuel allowance reduced after Qatar podiums

After the podium(s) in Qatar, Ducati had it's fuel allowance reduced from 24 to 22 litres ... that's a HUGE difference and something difficult to overcome when you are battling for a top five position... It certainly evens the playing field though!

I don't think SPEED airs it anymore anyways, i'm on Telus and get SPEED, but no MotoGP coverage. I think FOX SPORTS 1 is the new North American carrier.

yep, Fox Sports 1 now covers all MotoGP related stuff but unfortunately I don't think we get it here in Canada. Although I do remember last year that RDS (french version of TSN) aired some MotoGP races although this year I haven't seen any yet.

That's because Qatar was before the channel drop date Apr 1.

This Marquez domination is pretty boring. I don't mind if he 3peats, but being that much ahead of the pack makes for some pretty boring TV.

Good for Honda on paper, but the ones to watch and be really interested on are the Yamahas and Ducs this year. Another Marquez win just seems par for the course.

BEST RACE I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!

-Rossi is a SURGEON!!!!! He started in such a bad position and just stormed up the field! He is the best rider on the planet... 36 years old or not.... this was a special performance and something MotoGP fans shouldn't forget for a very long time!!!

-when Marquez stormed out to that 4 second lead I was upset... I don't like to see domination like that I prefer to see a good battle. That said - if Repsol is just the dominate team than you shouldn't blame them for that or punish them because ultimately it's the responsibility of the other teams to be more competitive....

-ROSSI!!!

-tire decision ultimately played a HUGE role in the outcome of this race

-another great Ducati performance!!!

What are your thoughts on Marquez going down?
