    Default Jerez 2019

    I hope that Quartararo doesn't have the same manager as Zarco ; he would probably have him sign with Kreidler or Malagutti next year ...

    Ha. True.

    Here is the latest: "

    KTM CEO says Zarco performances "simply unacceptable" from https://us.motorsport.com/motogp/new...table/4383578/

    Hmmm. Do you think it could be the bike? Zarco was a two time Moto 2 champion, shook up the MotoGP world on a Yamaha, and was only one spot behind Oliveira at Jerez .... Unacceptable?

    I think someone should start a new Yamaha based satellite team and hire Zarco and Lorenzo ‘cause apparently they both can only ride the Yamabikes

    I’m loving Quartararo .... and Morbidelli .... I picked ‘em both in my fantasy league ..... by the end of the season I’m gonna look like a genius

    My oldest son is always in the MLB and NFL fantasy league , sometimes multiple ones I think .

    I didn't know they had one for MotoGP , but I guess it's no surprise .

    One question - How does one have the the time for that endeavor ?

    Ha! It helps to be retired ... and lazy.

    The MotoGP group I’m in is all Aussies and Brits, I’m the sole Yank in the mix. It’s a very low maintenance game. Everyone gets to pick 10 riders at the beginning of the season. You are stuck with those 10 all year, even if one is unable to compete. You score the same # of points as your cumulative riders.

    Example: This sheet shows everyone’s picks -

    83323B3C-88A6-4744-B6AC-14388AC7D50C.png

    And here are the results from Jerez:

    B2D664F9-8D16-41EC-8248-006CF43E6406.png


    Its not as complicated or confusing as it looks. The game admin is a former pro road racer in Queensland, Australia, who loves Excel spreadsheets and he sends out results after each race.

    I was the league champion last year by 1 point. I’m off to a slow start this year but feel like I’ll finish strong .... I’m hoping Cal Crutchlow gets the the flu or something for a couple of races, I really need him to do poorly in order for me to do well.

    Yes, I am that selfish.

    Did anybody watch the Moto3 race? Particularly the bikes coming out of the last turn on the last lap.

    One of the riders, back a few, maybe 5th or 6th, stands up on his bike (i.e. raises his buttocks up with hands still on the bars as we street riders do some time to stretch our legs), as he is accelerating out of turn in the drag race for the checkered.

    Anybody else see that, and what's up with that?
