Not Lorenzo's year.
« on: 28 June 2019, 08:40:12 PM »
Crashed heavily at Assen today in free practise. Two vertebra damaged, so out for this and the next round in Germany. At least no-one will get skittled by him this weekend.(Bit harsh, but you know what I mean).

Hindsight's a great thing,if he realised he'd finally ride the Ducati like he did at the end of his contract,he'd never have left and I can't see him doing the same thing on the Honda,it seems you have to be aggressive with it like Marquez,Lorenzo's more of a smooth rider.Trouble is where's he go to next? who'll give him a massive salary which he'll demand?he's been with the big 3,KTM are well happy with Pol Espargaro and Zarco's there for another year,Aprillia haven't got the money,I think it's time for him to think about retiring,maybe running his own team like VR46.
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

Low side is usually the walk away and get on the second bike type of accident
He is getting to be a bit like Pedrosa, nothing going right for him.
Riding styles are like chalk and cheese between Marquez and Lorenzo.
Roll on Qualifying
