I'm from Indonesia. And sometimes the participation of Indonesian rider feels a little forced. Besides in this country is rarely large cc motorcycle riders, local championships also provide the type of motorcycle that is very much different. And sometimes coaching riders also carried seeds from when they were little. Sometimes it is very sad for me to witness the participation of riders just seem to be a mere hoax material. Hopefully in the future there is an early development of the riders in particular regarding how to ride a big cc sport bike.

@rtw same here. Topan, doni are just marketing ploy for now. Unless they start to train these kids in europe or us, they'll always be a marketing piece for the manufacturers (or unless motogp starts a scooter class racing championship.

They play down in the article the impact (no pun intended) of Marquez's crazy actions that seriously injured Rattapak and put him out of racing and back into a hospital bed.

Marc Marquez got away very, very lightly with riding in a manner that really could have killed someone - its not stretching it to say that if he had not been who he is, then the punishment meted out would have been a lot more severe.

As has been said, this lad did show promise and have pace, and its a sad thing he has to retire at just 25 (and basically his competitive career ended with his crashes even younger).
