    2018 MotoGP & WSBK - may have spoilers

    For those of you on the fence about whether or not to pay for the MotoGP Video Pass, now would be a good time to buy IMO.
    The first GP tests of the year are Sunday, so you'll get the full scoop, but all the stored videos, Best Passes, interviews, etc.

    Will Yamaha be Honda's equal this year?
    Is this Rossi's last year?
    Will Zarco show up the newer bikes again?
    How many podiums will KTM get?

    Can't wait!

    I know, I know! And George should have been mentioned because he was fastest at the end of the three days of testing, doing the fastest lap ever on 2 wheels at Sepang. Georgie boy may finally be figuring out the Ducati, or Ducati is finally figuring out him.
    I know early testing doesn't necessarily indicate who will do what in the season (Remember Vinales dominating testing last year?), but IMO it does indicate who is struggling.
    I haven't finished watching all of day 3 yet, but I found a few things interesting.
    I didn't realize Crutchlow is now a full HRC sponsored rider. They had 3 2018 bikes for him to test and he stayed near the top all 3 days.
    Jack Miller seems to be adjusting much quicker to the Ducati than I thought he would, setting good times all 3 days.
    I think I heard Rossi say he set a personal best Sepang lap time.
    Aprilia still has a ways to go.
    For much of the testing there were 8 or 9 riders within a half second of each other.
    Looks like 2018 will be another very competitive season.

    How can George be so good and so bad at almost the same time? Fastest ever at Sepang, worst ever at latest testing...

    Boris says it all...
