^ Anyone anticipating this top 4 here would be declared looney. An Aprilia, a THIRD Team Satellite kid, a KTM and the 2nd Suzuki rider? 

Three Rounds in and we have bonkers land. Absolutely loving it! Aside from not having huckaheadbonking Marc here, sincerely missing him and concerned. You can bet he has his bag packed for Austin, and I hope he is just seeing one of them. 

Anyone else see Rins strong at COTA on Sunday? Is KTM ready for a good weekend? Exciting, interesting, confusing, and COOL. 

Cloverleaf, how is the jersey fitting? Is it on right now? What do you think of today's race?

v Thanks again Ivanhoe, you're a gem. 

i Viva MotoGP !

Humans are winning. People with emotions, friendships, loyalties, failings, who help one another without thought of personal gain, people for whom riding round in circles is a joy but not the only joy in life. I couldn’t be happier in sporting terms. And almost as exciting, I’ve got the Aprilia team shirt you sent me for last year’s win in the MM top 5 championship. And, as long as I don’t catch myself in the mirror, I’m feeling good in it - especially now, of course. Hooray for Aleix, for Aprilia, for the sport and for the fans. These are great times. 

To your point Shrink, we have someone who predicted something quite similar…

He’s got 1, 3, 5 and 6, ffs. Of course, you’re well positioned yourself, Ivanhoe. It’s a long season, good luck everyone, reckon I’ve peaked too soon. 

Thanks, Cloverleaf (and congrats for your championship lead!), but I don't have the number 5 in the standings. Yet. I may have soon though, if I'm looking at Yamaha's troubles thus far. Quartararo's points mainly come from the Mandalika wet race, and the other Yamahas are struggling even more. It's not looking so good for the world champion (I really wish he would wear a big fat no. 1 plate to remind me).

I'm going to enjoy my time near the virtual top, maybe things will change once we're at 'normal' circuits in normal circumstances. But Aleix seems wonderfully consistent so far, being fast at every track and looking confident too. And I have a sense that my dark horse Marini may get there too, which would be brilliant for my chances in this prestigious competition of course ;-)

I knew he would challenge for the podium when I picked him to finish 2nd in the championship! 

Oh.

Wait a minute...

That was last season, wasn't it? Damn.

^ The Binder, Aleix, Zarco brave picks are paying off so far. Bastiannini too. Cool! 

Just please, someone beat Cloverleaf for me. Me and Marc are stuck in a cold ice bath. Brrrr! PValve, Cloverleaf only has a wheel ahead of you. Huge pack behind. We only have one person that started from pitlane or something (hang in there Poole Pirate! Too early for Blue flags).

Prestigious competition indeed. High stakes, exclusive, big pressure. Hope we can all hang in there!

;)

And BRIAN is top 5?! Ah jeez, could it get worse? Come on Marc Marquez, Austin Texas baby! Fingers crossed that your eyes ain't. 

P.S. did some laps at COTA on Forza last night. It wants to be interesting, but even with some crafty challenging corners it is just BORING. Does anyone anywhere actually enjoy being on this track? Kevin Schwantz, maybe you? 

Usually I'm cheering for ANYONE to beat 93 at COTA, but having him pulling my stats down I suddenly find myself in the young man's corner. Of course, I truly do hope he is back to full health with no ocular entanglements and ready to battle all-comers in Austin. 

Utterly, wonderfully, bizarre that someone could pick Bagnaia, Marquez, Martin, Miller and Dovizioso and be the tail marker. The amount of talent in that squad is monumental. It is 2022 though, so Poole Pirate will probably walk away with the golden t-shirt come years' end. 

was tracking how Marco was helping his 'teams' & discovered that 'guy smiley_106'  deserves another 7 pts

I need every point I can get at this stage - I really thought Jack was going to have 'his year', and that Marc had learned his lesson (lol - more fool me). Early days I suppose. Hooray for Marco Bezzecchi and his 7 points - Rookie of the Year for sure from that one (yeah, yeah, could well be eating those words in 3 races). 

Yes, you are right. Only top 5 were counted, let me correct that for next round.

Bring (it) on COTA 🙌
