MotoGP 2019
« on: February 04, 2019, 12:28:04 AM »
The first testing session of the new season has just concluded, and things are looking up a bit for KTM and Aprillia as they are getting very close to the sharp end of the pack.

First race of the new season is in about a month.  Lots of healing and recovery going on as everyone is trying to be as well conditioned as possible, both mentally and physically.

Well, they now have competitive riders. Will the bikes measure up?

It looks like there will be heavy traffic near the sharp end.  At least that's the way I see the season shaping up.  Suzuki's motor is really good, but so are the Ducati and Honda this season, plus Yamaha has also made improvement with their motor.  This makes for very close (exciting) competition on the track.  If all goes well it should be a thoroughly entertaining season with a few surprises along the way.
