Practice starts this morning for the Qatar MOTOGP, this is going to be an exciting year! Check out this link, http://www.vipstand.me/ you will be able to watch the practice, qualifying & all the races here (if it's not blocked in your country)
Good tip on that site Gary. I'm streaming it on my TV and it's great to watch live coverage from UK's Eurosport.
It must feel good to be a part of HRC these days. 1, 2, 3 with Dovizioso right where he needs to be - holding down the two Yamahas.
Bad news for little Bautista and Suzuki as he broke his femur in a (second!) 200km/h fall. For a normal person that would mean a whole year of recovery but who knows with these jockeys. Hopkins may ride his bike tomorrow.
Ivan, I was also able to see the practice on Eurosport 2, it was great to hear it in English, the real bonus for me was to listen to Julian Ryder's commentary. I'll be able to watch Sunday's race on TV but will turn off the volume and listen to Julian on the internet.
I saw Hopkins race a few times when he was a kid and yes, he was unbelievably fast, problem is that he crashes a lot, I know he is the back-up rider for Suzuki but I can't see them letting him ride at Qatar, he has only ridden that bike for a photo session. Suzuki might be better off with a test rider or maybe someone from MOTO 2 that has been on the track for a few days.
I wonder what is going on with the Ducks, hopefully, Ducati will get things sorted out soon. I'm thinking that on Sunday we will see two Hondas and a Yamaha on the podium.
