    It’s only logical that Marquez will lose a race some day; no one is perfectly infallible. But given the way he’s been so absolutely dominant this season, I’m almost anxious to see what chain of events will have transpired that will lead to him not winning a race. Will it be a no-holds-barred fist fight to the end with another rider having risen to the challenge, or will it be a case of rider error leading to a preventable crash? Or will it be something else altogether?

    Regardless, let the naysayers continue to complain about Marquez dominance leading to boring racing. I think that this season has the potential to become the stuff of legend. How many times do you get to have a front row seat to racing history unfolding before your eyes?

  • Gonzo

    Well said, Shawn. Even if I was not a dyed-in-the-wool Honda fan, I would say that. No other form of motorsport can claim the same level of historical action witnessed in MotoGP and IOMTT can in 2014.

  • irksome

    @Shawn: There are those who would disagree; I am not one of them. I’m not a huge fan of MM but there can be no denying we are privileged to be witnessing something special.

    Maybe not so much today, but there is great racing occurring throughout the field. Sit back and enjoy.

  • Frank

    Agree with everyone so far. It’s easy to complain about anything really. I myself find it silly when I read people commenting that the racing is ‘boring’ and that they stopped watching this year. I feel the opposite. Yes Marquez has won all 9 races but that doesn’t take away from how he’s done it and how the racing itself has played out in every race. There is something to be excited about in every race even if you take Marquez out of the picture. We’ve had a couple flag to flag races with bizarre starts, we’ve had a helluva race in Argentina on an unfamiliar track, we’ve had a few battles to the last lap and a few guys on ‘second tier’ bikes doing some amazing things (Aleix, Iannone most notably). We’ve watched an old veteran return to top form and an unexpected drama with Jorge’s unfortunate first half. Heck, Ducati’s been on the podium twice…

    And it also is worth mentioning that Marquez has accomplished his 9 victories in almost every conceivable way. He’s raced from the front leading the whole way, he’s battled hard to the last lap, he’s worked his way up from the middle of the pack, he’s won in the wet, he’s won flag to flag, he’s won from pit lane, he’s won on a brand new track, he’s won with a recently healed broken leg, he’s won after having run off track… Impressive is an understatement. Historical is the right word. I for one, can’t wait for the second half of the season. Haters gon’ hate…

    OMG this is racing, you get paid to win and thats what MM93 is doing. Second, people act as if hes riding against slow people. MM is racing against the best, so to say, so if he can pull off 9/9 well good job son, your a legend in the making… unless of some freak unforseen accident this guy is gonna do some amazing things for the sport. Bow down folks. #MM93=Boss

  • meanbeanHB

    Never posted on here… I have been watching moto gp for about 7 years solid now. I agree with Frank, what MM93 is doing is ridiculous. He has won every single way possible, even after landing on his head! This kid wrangles the bike like a real cowboy. I was a huge Stoner fan, still am… But this kid is amazing to watch ride a world class machine like the Repsol Honda. I think the rest of the class has got catching up to do as far as how they ride their bikes. I personaly think anything that happens change wise to the bikes going forward will not alter what he will be capable of doing. I enjoy watching him ride and enjoy watching him win. We may never see anything like this again, or maybe it’s the beginning of a dominant era of MM93 on the top step! And Honda, get Nicky Hayden some more power!!

    Great photo of Marquez. Clearly Marquez is the boy for the playstation generation.
    It is telling about the complete lack of competition that Predrosa, nice guy that he is, has never won a championship despite being with Honda since 2006. No other rider has been in a factory longer with no title. John Hopkins said continuing with Pedrosa for another 2 seasons was not logical in racing terms. He is on the same bike as Marquez but will never now or in the next 2 years of procession win against Marquez unless Marquez is injured or crashes.
    As for Marquez crash, he did not break anything, tear anything, crack anything, suffer concussion, bleed or otherwise injure hmself. Unlike Crutchlow at Le Mans and Lorenzo at Assen. When he broke his leg during the break in 2013/14, the doctor said he would be riding in 4 weeks. He was back riding in 4 weeks.
    Moto3 and Moto2 were epic as usual. Close racing, changing fortunes during the race, riders on the ragged edge.

    The fact that Dorna have not even commented on Miller possibly moving to MotoGP is testiment to the mess they are in. Three seasons ago they proclaimed that no rider would move from Moto2 to a factory team until Repsol had a word, now it is seemingly fine to move from Moto3 to MotoGP.

    I wonder what would have happened if Simoncelli had not been killed or unlike Marquez not been put into a satelite team, well we would have some decent racing and the Playstation legend would look distinctly less amazing.

    “playstation generation”? are you 70 years old smiler? You must be from “the checkers generation” . I ask because even Colin Edwards is from the “playstation generation”. Once again, Marc wins and in predictable style Smiler is on here trying to belittle his accomplishments.

  • Jose Barreira

    The doubts of all of the tech team, old fashion start of the race,winner coming from 10th place and all of the GREAT race of MM,DP and others makes me feel very happy that I’m a biker.

    Records are made to be broken and some people are as GOOD as that!

    Moto 3 & 2 also excelente.

    “Regardless, let the naysayers continue to complain about Marquez dominance leading to boring racing.”

    The first five following responses agreed, as if there was actually something to agree to. But anyway, since that statement was from the first comment, and since it seems to be a popular point of discussion: Who complained?

    “John Hopkins said continuing with Pedrosa for another 2 seasons was not logical in racing terms. He is on the same bike as Marquez but will never now or in the next 2 years of procession win against Marquez unless Marquez is injured or crashes.”

    What EXACTLY did John Hopkins say, smiler?

  • Jw

    If ever there was a chance for someone other than MM, it was yesterday’s race. To be honest it was a bit gut wrenching to see Bradl drop 15 clicks in his home race. Yes indeed we are witnessing history here.

  • Jw

    And then there is Bradley Smith..

    I have a serious question, how does a team have enough spare parts to keep up with his wrecking ball mania on the track?

    I figure that dude cost the team for one race over a million bucks in damages
