    I don’t know if it’s the setup or what but they better find some top end in Marc’s Duc. Qatar and Portimao were pretty embarrassing.

    He seems to be the only Duc getting owned on the straights. His brother might be also, but he's rarely on camera, so I can't tell.

    Marc's bike is a year old and no longer being developed. Factory & Pramac are the current year bikes. Short of rain or mechanical/self inflicted issues with the top teams it's unlikely Marc is going anywhere near the top step as the GP24s will continue to get better.

    He explained he still have issues in the fast corners and that in turn affects his straightaway speed, shouldn’t be an issue at COTA

    I believe he’s been given the base spec that they started 23 with, so there’s still the opportunity that he gets the developments they made during 23.

    i'll take this statement and say he top steps COTA. if he can do it on a honda over and over again, he can do it on the Duc.

    No matter what happens, it's going to be epic. I'm riding my Victory out there from San Diego with a buddy from Sedona on his GS, stopping in Roswell for a night on the way, and staying in an Airstream on a ranch/resort about an hour SW of the track. It will be the first time there for both of us. I'm hoping for a MM win and a podium for PA. BB fighting for a spot on the box would be a nice bonus.

    Hard to pick against Pecco or Martin to win. Both are riding at dare I say "alien status". Marky will be the wild card due to his past success at this track. True test of the Hunduh as it won here last year, where will the top Hunduh finish?

    I'm going for a long shot..

    P1: Marquez
    P2: Binder
    P3: Martin

    Pecco dumps it like last year.

    It would be something if Rins could win this. Probably won't happen, but I look at last year.

    I think Marc will get his win or throw it down trying. I know that's the Marquez style anyway but I think being the "king of COTA" will add a little fuel to his fire. I like Bastianini's chance here too. Should be some great racing.

    Dave Wolfe I know nuttin!

    Zarco wins on the honda with Acosta in second and Pecco in third

    The American rounds I like to do early in case there are any WERA folks that have travel plans or plans for meetups
