MotoGP has returned so it’s time to get back to blogging after my own winter break!
Qatar qualifying has really been exciting as there is so much movement in the paddock, many riders beating expectations and some below where they were predicted.
MotoGP brought us a session where the Ducati really shone a resurgence under the guidance of project manager Gigi Dall’Igna, emotively completed by chants of the man who has stuck by them through thick and thin ‘Dovi’ – Andrea Dovizioso.
But my main focus for reporting remains the support classes, both of which had riders take career first poles within the world championship structure.
Moto3 saw experienced ‘veteran’ of the class Alexis Masbou rise to the top , Moto2 saw Sam Lowes continue his dominance over the weekend.
But who can challenge them?
The finest place to catch up with the action, try these reports (I lovingly created!)
