Break down and spend the 100 euros, and you could have already seen Brno. (P.S. It's another fantastic race.)

Are any races past Dutch GP available yet? That's the most recent one I see on the server
John has not had time to upload any races/quali's/practices/press conferences since the Dutch GP. He said he may have time as the season goes on to upload these.
So you need to watch the GP's as and when they are on. For instance, the Czech GP will still be playing now on the server.

Jesus, its was a break, right? I'm guessing they screwed them in place and they opened him up in the process? I mean he might lose a title because of this, so I guess its best to do it before the points start to rack up in someone else's favor, but yeah... I'll never get hardcore biker mentality, I didn't even want to ride on days after it snowed because of the mag-chloride dusted everywhere, and these guys walk (sometimes carried like with Lorenzo) from the OR pumped full of pain meds and onto a bike. That's dedication.

These younger guys are ****ing Hungry, Marc really better be on his toes because with Martin heading up to Moto2 and Mir, Olivera coming to GP these guys are not pulling any punches to secure their rides.

If racing is your entire life you’ll do whatever it takes. At this level there may never be another chance for these guys to win a world championship.

Whatever it takes.

Yep. Plus these guys are wired with an unbelievable competitive drive that pushes them on. Kenny Roberts book Techniques of Motorcycle Roadracing gives a great look at this as he tells his story and how he was years out of racing before he could let up and not have to win every game of golf, every practice lap on his dirt track, etc.

No, I get that part; I did time-attack stuff--I'm actually a cager in my heart and soul--in hopes of getting sponsors to notice me and get me into GT racing (it didn't work and I got a 9-5 after my studies) and did a lot of things I wished I hadn't and I'm still paying for nearly 10 years later--physically as well as psychologically. Suffice it to say that all motorsports are dangerous but cars and bikes are no where near the same in threat models

With motorcycles, that break not healing correctly is potentially a career ending injury that can bite him back really hard next season or as late as 7 years, its especially (pointlessly?) dangerous when he already has a Moto2 seat secured already, whether he wins the championship or not, on a factory KTM ride and he's in his early 20s (?).

I'd think people around him, mainly his manager, would probably try to talk him into healing correctly and if it the 'worst comes to worst' down the line it may be best to take the rest of the season off and learn how to ride a bike built around the new Triumph platform and with that have a competitive edge against everyone else on the grid as it will be an equalizer, Moto2 is probably more crucial to do so as Moto2 seems like a graveyard for pro racers unless you show real promise to the higher ups, and even then a rider like the caliber of a Zarco had to win two championships in strong fashion only to get a satellite ride that has been using outdated tech for 2 seasons in a row.

Either way, I don't claim to fully understand it, but I do respect i

Please, please, pretty please, can someone send me the Gdrive link? Did ask last week but maybe everyone too busy.

Would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Could I trouble someone to send me a link to download the race? I've missed about the last 6 weeks so if the links are different to get the older races, I wouldn't mind those too please. Thanks.
