Top 10 MotoGP qualifying times from Le Mans:
1. Marc Marquez (Spa) Honda 1 min 32.187 secs
2. Jorge Lorenzo (Spa) Yamaha 1:33.217
3. Andrea Dovizioso (Ita) Yamaha 1:33.603
4. Cal Crutchlow (GB) Yamaha 1:33.609
5. Stefan Bradl (Ger) Honda 1:33.634

That's the BBC at their best.....

They don't care abut Bike racing. I've no idea why they pushed so hard to get the exclusive rights.

There is a box you can buy from Humax 199 or 299 and then free on it allegedly

WTF :mad:

What was all the bull from Dorna, when they gave the live MotoGP rights to the BBC, that they wanted the racing on mainstream TV?

At least with Eurosport only Freeview users missed out.

Not impressed!!!

Two Ducatis finish in the top 5, one had qualified in third and lead for around half the race. An injured Brit on a satellite bike outperforms two entire factory teams and secures a second place :hail:. Rossi eats gravel, Lorenzo discovers a reverse gear on his Yamaha...

:weed::weed::weed:

The forum is silent. :whistle:

Great weekend for the Brit riders. Cal and Scott both rode superb racers, if Cal can sort out his starts and get to the front early how good would his results be?
If the duc's perform better in the wet maybe they should look at an off shore power boat racing team for 2014.....
Not sure what Lorenzo's issues were, any more news?

As for Rossi.... wouldn't want to offend the Rossi fanbase....:stir:

Dovi got that bike into 3rd place in a dry qualifying session (can't remember Rossi ever doing that), so maybe they're making progress after all, the alternative doesn't bear thinking about... :D

Moto 2 was excellent - Scott Reading an absolute demon into turn 1, be good to see another Brit on the big bikes next year.

Moto GP was interesting enough Ducati has historically done well in the wet but even so well done to Dovi for a great spectacle and spirited race - Don't think the race was as good to watch as the SBK from Assen last week - but no posts about that, maybe its just me that watches :rolleyes:

Not to mention, I think I was still at school last time a Brit came second in a premier class GP!

Nothing to do with somebody failing to shine more to do with sick and bloody tired of you and your dig dig dig stir stir stir. If we post about how well or how crap Rossi is doing your right in there with your sarky comments. Its not about the racing when you post in here its all about your negativity about Rossi That's the reason i dont post about the Gp or Rossi anymore don't know about anybody else.
Yes its good that Ducati finished in the top 5 but what has Hayden done in the past 2 yrs .................bugger all.
