MM93 came through with pole!

JL99 in sixth. Not bad at all.

and so it begins . . . . the animosity of Maverick and Rossi.

I had to run out right as GP qualifying was closing. Saw MM93's 2:03 lap, and saw Viñales was showing a red first sector. Had to leave. Then I find out he took 1st and MM93 put in a 2:02 on the very last lap after sneaking by the flag, cant believe I had to miss it.

Holy shit what an incredible grid that will be starting tomorrow.

Definitely the most competitive and exciting lineup that I can remember.

I hope tomorrow is the best race I've ever seen

I Ride: 2011 ZX6R a.k.a. the beast. 2012 Ninja 650 a.k.a. Bambi after that unfortunate incident with a deer
Here's another piece of my handiwork from Friday. Corsi crashed in T6 and his brake lever guard got jammed in his fairings preventing him from turning his bars. He couldn't free it so I "fixed" it for him. Basically I ripped it out of his fairings leaving it pointed skyward. At least he could ride it back to the pits.

Today ... bored. Nothing exciting happened in my corner. Hopefully I get to pick up the #99 tomorrow!

Damn! That was a hell of a run. Maverick vs Marquez...this will go on for some time. I must admit, that Vinales is definitely proving me wrong every weekend now. I'm going to go re-adjust my prediction in the league for tomorrow lol

I got him wrong from years ago. Even in 2013 when he won Moto 3 after the closest season of Moto 3 EVER, when he won't the championship on the last lap of the last race, I still didn't think he was anything special. I was thinking Rins was going to be the "future alien" of MotoGP. Boy was I wrong!!

In other news I stood in the sun for 2.5 hours and couldn't get my helmet autographed. It was a giant shit show.


See, this is how I would've ended that scenario:
