Dorna, why not just stick pedals on the bloody things and have the riders go around like the Tour De France.

I want to watch bike RACING not an economy run. :? :? :?

Dam stupid rule.

there was one point in the practice where vale came onto the front straight significantly behind edwards... and then just motored past him like he was standing still..!! and edwards was tucked in and going for it! gotta be mega frustrating! DORNA working hard to ruin MotoGP!

The Tech3 team is where is supposed to be with what they get (year old engines and a look alike chassis under the same fairing).

Next year will be even worse for them I predict.

maybe the engine rule is not that great but its not only dorna fault. all the factory's agree with it.
the factory's sayd we can do this, but that will all change when the championship is gonna be decided by engine faillure.!!
the only manufacturer which side of this rule may well benefit is ducati with his desmodromic valve engine. and don't say no on this one because its real.
pneumatic valve needs way more care.
the ducati motor is a very strong engine. they will just do fine next year.
but the rule is nothing but error error error error
