It was nice to have a weekend full of exciting road and dirt bike racing!
The MotoGP circus kicked of its season in full force with the opener at the Losail Circuit in Qatar. This is the first season in a long while that has generated so much anticipation with the emergence of Marc Marquez on the Honda and the return of Valentino Rossi to Yamaha. I won’t spoil it for you – but I will say the race lived up to the hype.
AMA Supercross ran on Saturday – so many great riders going to head to head – but it appears that Millsaps’ hold on to the number one plate has slipped for good. Villipoto is just running with it.
And finally, BSB kicked its season off in the UK with Byrne attempting to defend his title from Brooks. Be sure and check out ITV4 for their great coverage – I won’t spoil that one for you.
It feels good to be countering the rising temperatures with some great racing for the summer. Now if we can just get the AMA Superbike series in order – we’ll be golden.
