Thumbs up MotoGP round 1 Qatar 03/29/2015 *SPOILERS*

Hello, and welcome the to start of the 2015 MotoGP season! It's been a long and cold winter, and I think we're all ready to get back to if, buts, cherries and nuts So, without any further delay, let's get this biatch started

I'm going to plagiarize Max Deutch a little for this
--Will Marquez dominate and repeat - - - AGAIN???
--Rossi is 36 this year, yet he's faster than he's ever been. Can we expect him to challenge for the title?
--Will Lorenzo be in better shape to start this year? If so, expect him to battle for the championship.
--Is Pedrosa done?
--Ducati's GP15 was impressive during testing. What will it be like during a full race?
--Cal Crutchlow left Ducati. So, if the above question has positive results, he'll be punching himself in the dick.
--Suzuki and Aprilia are in the mix. I don't expect much. Maybe a fire or two.
--Nicky Hayden. He might be a WSBK champ but he clearly would rather be in GP as a back marker.
--Sadly, Nicky is the only American in GP this year

I'm sure I've missed a lot, so bring the noise and join the discussion.

AND LET THE SEASON BEGIN!!!!

Well, Foxsports1 will re-air the race EARLY Wednesday. 3am to be exact. Set your DVR now.

Also, for the price of one months cable, you can get the whole year of GP from their site. That includes testing and other seasons, too.

Damn. The TV programming on FIOS REALLY pisses me off. I can't get to watch it in HD if I want to see it this weekend? Fox Sports 2 doesn't come in HD at all. I'm so tired of this bullshit. If I get the package, can I see the races in HD online and stream it to my TV?

I don't see why #93 will not dominate. I am guessing a repeat of last year. And only 3 guys have some chance to stop him. Rossi, Lorenzo & Dovi (if that damn bike starts working)

Thanks Max for all the snippet & news in off-season

I'm calling it now. IF Marquez doesnt get hurt, 3peat!

I have Cystic Fibrosis, and yes I ride a Triumph Daytona 675.
