MAD4THECREST     WHATARUSH     ALLRED              OLDIRON            
Mir                        Marquez           P. Espargaro        Mir
Rossi                     Miller               Rossi                   Morbidelli
Bagnaia                 Rins                 Mir                     P. Espargaro

MOTOGRADY          FATFAT            SPIESLIVES
Quartararo             Marquez          Marquez
Miller                     Miller              Rins
Oliveira                  Morbidelli        Morbidelli


Marquez x 3 (Spain)     Rossi x 2 (Italy)                        Quartararo x 1 (France)
Mir x 3 (Spain)            P. Espargao x 2 (Spain)               Oliveira x 1 (Portugal)
Morbidelli x 3 (Italy)                                                   Bagnaia x1 (Italy)
Miller x 3 (OZ)

Interesting looking at the picks. Of the 23 riders only 9 have been selected as favorites. Marquez, Mir, Morbidelli & Miller lead with 3 selections each, Rossi & Pol follow with 2 selections each, and finally Quartararo, Oliveira & Bagnaia only being favored by one CycleLeague player each.  

If Marquez continues to be a no-show things may change for Whatarush, FatFat and Spieslives, who have all only been firing on two cylinders so far.

Well, I went with Quart because he showed so much speed at the beginning of last year.
Then, it seemed like Yamaha and their bikes just started imploding.  The valves blowing up motors thing.  The brakes thing.  The shortage of motors thing. I took him because I thought heck, he's had 6 months to clear his head.
And Yamaha has had 6 months to get their act together, bike wise.  

Oliverio, he had some good finishes last year. The KTMs seemed to be on a roll after a steady rise in performance.

 I'm still wondering wtf is going on over at the tangerine garage🤔

The surprise pick, that paid off last week, and I don't know how he does it, was imo mad4thecrest with Bagnalia.  He's an Effin rookie for cripes sake.  How did he pick the one out of, how many 1st timers are there, 4?, that jumped on the big bike and rode like he owned it?

That he also picked 46 is kind of a mystery to me also...........

Like me, I think Mad4 picked The Doctor thinking he would at least be consistent, he is not a high faller risk, he obviously is highly skilled, the only detriment is his age, which may actually be an attribute simply because of his length of experience.

I would never have thought to pick Bangaia, and he did turn out to be a point scorer this last race, after a minor slip by Mir, (but Mad4 also had Mir, so swings and roundabouts)

Crazy "whatifs" but that is what makes it so interesting. It is going to be an interesting season!

Ya, I'm kinda looking forward to round 2 myself Allred.
Almost to the point of buying the Motogp streaming thing.

I mean, I can wait till the next day, but bloody hell, half an hour before midnight?  Wtf?😤

Ah, Rossi.  I considered him as well, for the same reasons you mention.
But, and I may be a bit jaded on this, I've seen I don't know how many great riders hang around too long.
For a few reasons, take your pick.  Rarely do they go on a tear and put up a consistent string of solid finishes.  Let alone wins.

Few are the men that realize, and accept, the cold reality, going out on top.

For me Bagnaia was an easy choice. He looked good at times on the satellite Ducati last year, and was a real hard-charger in Moto2 the year prior to that. He has a lot of desire to win, and he's on a fast bike that can help him win. Not at all tracks though. I expect him to be inconsistent and score no points occasionally, hence Rossi as an offset. I am still counting on Mir for consistent podiums.

That said, Rossi may have been a mistake
And Rins is likely to take points from his teammate Mir

Also, I didn't choose a Miller over Baggy-Eyes because Miller has peaked, I think, and doesn't have much more to show us (could be wrong).

Before the first round started. I was thinking of dropping Marc for Zarco, Bagnaia, or Mir. But I feel Marc would be more consistent once he gets back.
I wanted to pick Maverick, or Quartararo. But with Yamaha's engine problems, I thought it wasn't a good choice.
Case in point
From RD2 of FP1 Yamaha valve problems still don't look good

Watching last week's race, I realized I picked Morbidelli for his solid 2020, but forgot that Petronas may have inherited last year's crap-tastic M1.

Mir tried, and at one point in the race I thought Pol was going to show too, but he ran wide and lost too much time because of it.

And Rossi........well...........what can I say, he obviously doesn't realize how important his results are to my Cyclevisor MotoGP League!!!!

Thoughts.......due to the covid19 pandemic this contest shortened to 2 rounds. 😀 jk guys.
Motogrady has a good day, Quarts win throws his team into the lead.
The Rossi factor takes its toll on mad4 and Allred.
Fat2, SpiesLives and whatarush are scouring the World Wide Web for any information on Marc Marquez this week.
High score last week was mad4thecrest, this week it's mg.  Both, barely cop half the points possible
a hat trick would give.  Which is proving to be pretty hard thing to pull.

Kinda surprising, even tho not the strongest bikes out there, hp wise, it's the Factory Yamahas that take
the win in both Rounds 1 and 2.  

Now, if they just don't break...........

There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
