Yes, it will be interesting to see whether he can get back onto the horse that threw him. I'm guessing he probably can BUT he'll have some really tough competition now that the taste of winning has recently blessed so many other riders and teams.
Should be another good race - probably pretty spectacular.

His got him into strife,
Mine just takes me fishin'.

Marc is not to be underestimated BUT he has been bested several times in recent seasons when he was healthy.  Dovisioso and  Rins have both beaten him in head to head battles but not on a regular basis.  Now Marc has to gain strength in his arms, especially the right one that has been so traumatically abused.  I think Honda should make a "suzuki" for him.  If Honda did make a "suzuki" clone I think other riders would also benefit from a sweeter handling missile, and Honda would get better overall results.   8)

Honda already has that bike. They were getting no results without Marc so they had to tone it down so Bradl, Nakagami and brother Alex could survive it and Marc looked pretty wasted after coming home 7th on it. Will Marc's conditioning improve before Espargaro figures out the Honda. Will Dovizioso come to an agreement with Aprillia? Aliex Espargaro got a well-earned 6th and Dovi could get them on the podium. Such intrigue. And we haven't even considered Yamaha, Ducati and Suzuki, loving it.
