    Default Mugello - The Doctor is making a House call.

    Rossi is unbelievable. Approaching his 40th birthday, he qualifies on pole at Mugello with Lorenzo and Vinales on the front row. The Italian crowd was absolutely frenzied.

    Tomorrow has the potential to be pandemonium.

    That may well happen but if a 25 yr old hot shoe beats a 40 yr old guy it’s no big deal. It’s expected, no credit to Marq, no skin off Rossi. However, if the 40 yr old over the hill guy beats the 25 ur old hot shoe, it’s a very big deal.

    So, in some ways, tomorrow is a win/win for Rossi and a lose/lose for MM.

    Well, it was not quite pandemonium, Ducati saw to that, but a podium seemed to satisfy the fans.

    For me, I was glad Jorge finally took the win on a Ducati. It was like watching the Jorge of old, rush to the front and just ride his own race. It will be interesting to see if Jorge has really made a turn on the Ducati, with the new gas tank, or if this is a one-off. He has the rest of the year to prove himself. Let's hope for a few more wins. Unfortunately, I think this may be a case of too little, too late as far as a Ducati goes. I will be discussing this with the rest of the USA -Jorge Lorenzo Fan Club later tonight when I have dinner with my wife.

    ^ That made me laugh! It blows my mind that either nobody takes Jorge aside and tells him he just needs to smile and be a little bit less of a dick and he will be well and truly loved or he just won't listen. Truly a gifted rider, it will be interesting to see where he ends up next season, maybe he can make it three manufacturers if he can ride the Suzuki to a win.
    As for the Doctor, I had him pegged for 8th when the following group caught him and Petrucci went by, shows you what I know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Thanks, Bruce. I had to spend 10 minutes (which I'll never get back) figuring out how to do a "shruggie", so what do I know shrug.jpg

    BTW, looking forward to some Red Mile pics

    Great race! I’m in the “I hate Lorenzo & Marquez Club” but I was thrilled to see Jorge win. He has been taking Ducati’s shit for so long, telling them what’s wrong with the bike but they won’t listen - just like they wouldn’t listen to Rossi. They finally do listen to him, makes some changes, and boom! Bob’s yer Uncle. He wins by 6 seconds.

    Hes already said it was too little, too late for him to stay at Ducati. He’ll probably be on a satellite Yamaha or a Suzuki.

    But you never know ‘till someone signs a contract.

    Great race, Jorge!

    Well this will make it easier for your club - being as how they are on the same team.

    I think its great. We will see if Jorge can tame the Honda.
