At this rate, as long as he avoids injury he'll surpass Rossi's 7 championships.

Pedrossa broke his collar bone in 4 places

Yet another massive injury for Pedrosa. His "luck" is incredible.

I've seen a wannabe use the inside leg at a track day - hilarious to see that in action. Probably just frustrating at this point at Rossi's level though.

Ahead of Lorenzo, yes, but I've been holding out hope that he can Marquez it like he used to. Oh...I mean dice through the field with impunity and dominate.

Courtesy of the new 2016 MotoGP rule that calls for a spec Magnetti Marelli ECU and software package.

^ that and Michelin tires are more of a equalizer this season over Bridgestone from last year. Also the change from 16.5" wheels to 17" also had a small impact.

Some nutty weather on the race weekends added a bit to the mix as well. Still, it is nice to see a more interesting mix at the front. Hopefully the KTM will add some more spice to the mix next year, but I am guessing they will be struggling a bit in their first year.

Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder. If I didn't know better I would think that was a mini Formula 1 nose piece. Maybe it looks better painted.
