Pedrosa to Kim in 2019


Rea might win one this year yet  ,cat among the pigeons? 

7 MotoGP title contenders?

Forget Zarco, he has no chance, great rider but he's on a satellite bike in a team that has never won a race.

Forget Pedrosa as well, I like him but it's hard to see how he's magically going to find that extra couple of percent that he has lacked all these years.

I hate to say it but forget Rossi as well, there's no denying his talent but his best years are past him.

That leaves Marquez, Vinales, Dovi and Lorenzo.

Lorenzo has been beat by his teammate in the last two years by Rossi then Dovi. What makes you think he is going to magically now going to challenge for the title lol. Dovi yes as he gave Marquez a close fight last year and made Lorenzo look like a amateur.

Pedrosa no as he is second fiddle to Marquez, had his chances in the past and blown them. As for Rossi if not for the two injuries last year he would of finished above Vinales and Pedrosa. Rossi will be Marquez biggest threat this year, Vinales is overrated and the 2018 Yamaha won't suit his riding style in the races. 

books rate JL99 above MV25 and AD04 - werent much off for last year if you take away the yamaha tire issues

MM clear lead, JL MV AD and VR bunched up,  and DP distant 6th  

MM93 11/10

JL99  6/1

MV25 13/2 

AD04 7/1 

VR46 15/2 

DP26 14/1

support your DP26 MV25 view  not on JL99 

"Roosi is biggest threat" is the biggest joke for this decade

I'll be replying to your comment after the last race in Valencia, we will see who the joke is! 

ok. what year though?  

Hilarious. You should be on stage.
