Moto GP Is Back!

It might be cold and miserable and you can't go out and ride, but Moto GP kicks off this weekend at Katar!

Jorge Lorenzo as Mark Marquez's teammate? This should be interesting!

Also some new faces including Bagnia and Oliveira on the grid this year, and isn't Mir coming straight from Moto 3? Should be an exciting 2019 season!

No football? No problem, we've got World Superbike, World Supersport and Moto GP back, and Moto America is almost here.

yep looking forward to the race, new 19 year old Fabio Quartararo did really well qualifying 5th, reckon Petrucci on the Duke could be a dark horse this year, looks close so a lot of riders could snatch it, see what happens later though, probably Marquez, again, and Rossi will come good

Wow Mototgp season starts this weekend I didn't realize it was this early in the year. Lorenzo on that Honda will be in the mix up front for sure but Marquez has gotten better with age. I think he had learned to still be really fast without taking so many risks as in risky passes, IMO he is the rider to beat out of everyone in the field. Rossi is a great rider but if they didn't get that Yamaha all together he will fade like last year. I would like to see him competitive at least one more year .

I just watched moto 3, waiting on moto 2 to start. I wish I was riding and recording than sitting and watching now. I love coming home on a Sunday evening and watching the races after riding all day, nice to chill before bed with some good racing.

was a good race but we have all been starved for months, results were much the same as last year, Dovi then Marquez, as good as Marquez is I hope he doesn't dominate again, gets boring, come on the rest

Well he is the champ if Dovi or anyone else wants to be the champ they have to beat Marquez. I got a feeling in every race he is going to be mixing it up with the lead riders. Dovi did get him in this race but **** Marquez was right there .

I was pulling for Jack Miller and another satellite win, but I guess it wasn't to be. (What was up with his seat???)

Suzuki didn't do too bad. They should see some podium finishes in the future.

At least it wasn't a run-away Dovi/Marquez race like last year ... there was a lead pac of 6 for quite some time, great to see some new faces too. Poor Quatero, 1st Moto GP race and stalls it at the starting line! Poor guy! I wonder if he got razzed big time "way to go - Rookie"!

Lorenzo wasn't up there at the front, thought he would do better.
