I just looked at the calendar and they have to drive 5200 km (3200 m) to the next GP after Portugal.

Great track. I rewatch that 2011 Roczen/Herlings battle every now and then.

British lads have to come home for a British Championship at Canada Heights,on the 22nd and its also a round of the French Championship , and the ADAC in Germany. No off weekends in Europe. And the off week between Russia and Latvia, also British , and Dutch championships, with 4 days to get back. And then there is Teuschenthal the week after Loket.

Last year at Agueda, Herlings was all over Cairoli. He's so much better this year, I have to think he wins this one.

They`ll be able to fuel up in Russia. Much cheaper. Just 2.4 dollars a gallon for a diesel.

They all should boycot those crazy GPs, Russia, Turkey and Asia. Nothing to win there.

But yeah, Its all about the money

yea, the track is fine, but the rest of the paddock is a bit of a mess

and apparently the bad weather is going to return tomorrow, so fingers crossed it doesn't or it could get a bit chaotic

David, Thomas in 2nd in his group. I think that`s his highest qualy spot ever.

Lewis Phillips saying that the rain forecast is less than expected earlier in the week, but , yes , the back of the start is a reminder of how bad it could have been.

Lets hope its not too bad.

Im watching EMX timing and there are 15 from each to go through, meaning 10 from LCQ , but it was 18 and 4 in Holland, wonder how that works.. i have been a 'bubble guy' in the past and its a PITA when the bubble moves every weekend.

yup, he looked good in Spain too but everyone in EMX250 was running the same pace so it was hard to make any impact.... hopefully he can do well here though, i'll be keeping an eye on him

MXGP All the big names in the top 10... after that the lap times drop fast 1:51.266 vs 2:05.863

Man that emx250 class is crazy. Look at the guys in the LCQ. Clarke is 6th in the championship and is just about to sneak into a qualifying position. Facchetti probably won't even qualify, he was a title favourite for many

Yup, Freek vd Vlist also didn't qualify a few weeks ago at red sand. And he's an ex-MX2 GP rider... had to be a bummer for him.

Trying to watch the qualifier but it just keeps showing the studio show or a replay of WMX

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it
