2017 MotoGP Jerez *Spoilers*

Great ride from Lorenzo! Could the use of the rear brake be the beginning of podiums for Jorge?

Is Dani back into being competitive?

Zarco is a beast !!!

George may have turned a corner. Last rider to podium on a Duc at Jerez was Hayden. He could do well in the Euro rounds....glad to see it!


Loving Zarco so far.

Mark will love that result from Rossi lol

This is great to see. I've had a lot of doubts about Lorenzo on the Ducati but hopefully he's turned the corner.

Congrats to JL, but as much I'm happy to see him on the podium, I think he might have got lucky in this race. Crutchlow crashed, the two Yamaha's had setup/tyre issues plus he chose the 2 medium tyres while many of the others in the field had at least one hard tyre. Imo, the next couple rounds should give us an idea on Lorenzo and the Ducati combo, assuming he doesn't make any mistakes.
As for Dani.... class act, he's always been very efficient with his tyres but didn't know he was that good! I was sure Marquez would catch him, but damn, good to see the old relentless Pedrosa back, not gonna rule him out this year thats for sure!

Next few rounds can't come soon enough!

Very good point about JLo.

And yeah, I love Pedro in top form. The guy deserves a title so bad. He seems to always have moments of brilliance but can't put together a whole season. Who knows...the title is still very much up for grabs.

Did you guys here the announcers drooling over rossi that he is still leading the championship. It was pathetic when jlo did what he did on the Ducati.
Before the press conference listen to tech 3 boss zarco must have got his ass handed to him for racing rossi. It was said in the race Folger better be careful or he may get his contract torn up.
Mcobra rossi was the lucky one with all the crashes not Lorenzo. He would have come in like 15th.
Finally the top four are 10 points away from each other and rossi didn't crash. So the other 3 have spotted him 25 points and he did 0 with it. Still no wins on the season . fucking joke zarco would be doing better on factory Yamaha than rossi guy has to go.

The announcers were once again On the fact zarco isn't racing for a title. I don't get it so you're not suppose to race hard? Why have anybody race except the factory Yamaha and Honda. They are the only ones that can win the title. The announcers have to go along with rossi

Actually I do get it and it's very sad.
MM will win the title

Agreed about Rossi being lucky in a whole, but the previous posts here were about JL's podium finish and I was just expanding on that.
His interview on crash.net about early doubters having to eat their own words, might bite him back if he doesn't perform in the next few races. Fingers crossed he didn't just get lucky.
