assen grand prix around the corner

Its anybody's game (except rossi) what will we see here. can the yamaha of maverick get back to winning form? will marquez figure out this new tire and not crash 5 times before the race? will it be hot enough for danny? will dovi win 3 in a row? can JLO podium. all questions will be answered in about a week.

Rossi still has a chance.

but having said that Marquez can figure something out. he didnt crash during the race unlike the practice and warm ups.

JLo seem to figure something out but too soon to say that. He needs constancy.

Dovi is hot right now with 2 wins and hopefully he can continue. Continual podiums with few more wins, he can have a chance for championship and Vinales blows it.

But I dont think Vinales will blow it. I think he will come back and have a good chance to win a championship this year.

If Dovi can keep up the consistency that will be awesome for him and the Ducati team, but..... Vinales has been doing damage control with tires and his points lead lately. At some point we're going to see him drop the hammer and start to build a points gap. The only issue I see is that you're going to see Marquez, Pesrosa, Rossi and everyone else with a shot of the title do the same. Lets call it what it is, it still anyone's game at this point. Zarco could be in the hunt for a win, Cal Crashlots can have a moment of brilliance, Iaonne could also go full Maniac and pull one out. Add some rain and crap weather and all the best of the rest guys are in it.

rossi has the same chance of winning this year as winning 2010 to present. not going to happen as its already over for him. even with all the funny play from dorna to effect the standings wont work. he is washed up has been and the stats prove it.
i would even give him the title if he would just go away already this is getting old.
only a dribbling rossi drone can think he has a shot at winning the title. if you have watched any form of moto gp racing since 2010 objectively you will know rossi has no shot.

when you average 1 race win a year but are 28 points back you cant make up the difference. thats not me talking thats mathematics.

Alright man, point proven. We all know you're not a Rossi fan, no one cares. Just because you can still bait a few people into having that argument for the hell of it is just great for you. Lets have a thread where we scarily takk about the racing and it just how much you hate Rossi.

I think Assen is going to be an interesting race tires aside, Maverick needs to get out of damage control in his points and needs to make a statement. As it stands it's anyone's game and the sharks are starting to circle. Honestly I'd love to see Dovi win again, see a tempo before the summer break.

I don't think anyone can be ruled out. We're in a unique spot, it's anyone's game. Maverick has the most to lose but still. Anyone can make a run at it, fuck it Dovi 2017

see who started this thread kevin ? me if you don't like it don't participate its so simple. all you guys with ban this don't talk that do you know how to ignore someone. if its a racing thread i will bring up rossi every time of what an old washed up had been he is. i will bring up stats prove my stats wrong if you can.

the guy in bold has no shot at the title. its over the fat lady is singing its the end of a career face it. you can't win a title when the avg title winner has 5 wins and you can only do 1 a year
