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!)
Crash is the destination for detail, as reported live directly after the session reports for Moto2 and Moto3, just click the links to be immersed in all you could wish to know about the Qatar action so far:
The flyaway rounds are coming to a close but if an early morning qualifying wasn’t for you here’s some catch up reports before race day for the Malaysian Grand Prix rounds!
My early morning detailed race reports for crash.net are the most comprehensive way to catch up on events, you can check out Moto2 here and Moto3 here. The site also carries all the info on the main race so why not comment, like tweet and get involved!

Here’s some links to change that!
Both of the support classes had some great tense action on Saturday my Crash.net race reports for Moto3 and Moto2 have the most detail, just click the links, or for a summary of both you can also catch up on the days events at Paddock Chatter, again just click for more.
Round nine takes us to Germany and off to the Saxon region for a trip to…the Sachsenring.
It’s a tricky track with lots of corners and curves, including the infamous Turn 11, with very little in the way of straights which help the underpowered bikes keep in contention – which should hopefully lead to some close races.
But before that you may want to catch up on where everyone qualified and for the latest in Moto2 and Moto3 – I have just the links you need !
My Moto3 qualifying report at crash.net can be found here, and Moto2 here.
For a brief summary of the two there is also my shorter combined round up for both classes over at Paddock Chatter, something for everyone – just follow the links!
