    Probably my favourite BSB Supersport race of this year, Jack Kennedy sliding the rear wheel is a lesson in control

    WOW! Just saw that Quartararo will be on the factory Yamaha for 2021-2022. Rossi will be stepping down from the factory seat, no word on if he'll retire from racing. He says he still wants to keep racing beyond 2021 but I guess that will depend on if he'll still have a ride or not.

    I would imagine it's a double edge sword, on the one hand he has not been competitive as in the past, so time for some new blood. On the other hand, whether you like him or not, his fan base sure brings in the crowds. End of an era for sure when he quits.

    I thought this might be his last year on the factory team. He has said that his results in the first few races will help him decide whether to move to the satellite team or just retire. He says he’s sure that Yamaha would still give him a factory spec bike to race even on the Petronas team.
    I’m checking an item off my bucket list by booking a trip for my son and I to go to his home race at Misano to see him for the last time on the factory team. I plan on making a trip to Tavullia to see his hometown while we’re there as well.
    I’ve always ridden mostly Honda’s, but I always liked watching Valentino race!

    It needed to happen, it didn't appear that he was going to leave on his own. Fabio better have another solid year or the Rossi fan boi's and the Italian press are all going to be beyond psychotic. Should be a good show.

    I see Rossi riding a "Petronas VR46" Yamaha next year as he transitions into making that his satellite team like he's been planning for a few years now.

    Not gonna happen. Petronas Sprinter Racing is a privately run team with Yamaha support. It's not like Yamaha can just trot Rossi in there and get rid of Raz and Wilco. If Rossi wants a team, he will have to figure out where he plans to get a grid spot, as there are none available.

    I'm sure they will find a way, whether it's with an existing or new team. They're not going to turn Rossi down because of a lack of grid spots.

    Unless they can change the rules, and get the rest of the manufacturers to agree to the changes, it's unlikely it is going to happen any time soon. DORNA and Yamaha will find a roll for Rossi, I just don't believe it will be MotoGP team owner.

    Early days, but at least they are back on track. Last year, Pecco ended the test quickest...and the real race results show how that ultimately turned out. The sophomores are looking decent so far. Back to Supercross until the real action starts.

    No live footage, just an After the Flag episode on MotoGP.com at the end of the day.

    Testing isn't exactly the most fun thing to watch, at least for me. It's a long day and a lot of pit in and pit out.
