Looks like we have a new Amazon Prime Show as well

“Like Netflix’s Drive To Survive, MotoGP’s docuseries will offer fans unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the biggest names in the series and chart their 2021 seasons.”

Is there any way to watch the MotoGP other than BT sport? What do you chaps use?

You can go watch at the bike shed, it’s a great atmosphere

New red flag rules

The only other legit way of watching it

Was a great start to the season!

  • Hondas seem to be going better than last year.
  • Ducati’s as ugly and fast as ever, though LOL that all the new bikes were behind last years bike.
  • The Suzuki’s look sexy as hell. I really do not understand that company anymore. Build amazing race bikes, don’t GAF about their road bikes.
  • Yamahahahahaha. Ooops.
  • Go Aprilia! Bike looks great, Aleix going as well as ever. Hope there’s more to come from them.
  • Go Sam! Can’t believe he did as well as he did with tendinitis in his arm.
  • Fingers crossed for Scott Ogden, hope he gets his feet in under the door over the season.
  • Great to see Anna Carrasco in Moto3. Supporting her, the sport needs more female riders.

shiiiiiiiiiit

That was scary!

I emailed Mat Oxley a couple of years ago when he first had eye surgery, suggested a blog on ‘what happens if the surgery goes wrong?’

Marc Marquez to miss Grand Prix of Argentina

Marc Marquez visited his ophthalmologist, Dr Sánchez Dalmau, at the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona yesterday, Monday, where he underwent his second medical check-up after the crash in Warm Up at the Indonesian GP a week ago. In this new examination, Dr Sánchez Dalmau confirmed that the HRC rider’s diplopia shows a notable improvement and reaffirms that the progression of his vision is very favourable. As happened with the last episode of diplopia, the number 93 will continue to carry out a conservative treatment regime with regular check-ups.

The Repsol Honda Team rider will not take part in the next round of the MotoGP™ World Championship that takes place this weekend in Argentina as he continues his recovery.

Doctor Sánchez Dalmau: “The second neuro-ophthalmological evaluation carried out on Marc Marquez this past Monday has shown a very favourable evolution in the paralysis of the fourth right nerve affected by the fall that occurred at the Indonesian Grand Prix. Recovery is not yet complete, and Marc Marquez must follow the established therapeutic regime with conservative treatment.
