Here is a YT link to the Austria GP, for those that missed it, (it was very intense!).

Worth watching. A good one. Enjoy!

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

No MotoGP fans here? Nothing to comment on a great race?

Big fan here
Yet again Spielberg Ring victory eludes Marc, Ducati dominance 3 years in a row. Epic battle between Dovi and Marc again! Marc got the taste of his own medicine in the end. Great race!
Ps: Quartararo will be a beast next year-> especially if Yamaha gives him the latest spec bike for next season.

Interesting that when it comes down to a last lap showdown between Marc and Dovi, it is Dovi that manages to come up on top.

Seems like Dovi's smooth riding style and tire conservation tactics, work out in his favor.

BTW, Marc did not like this race at all:

https://www.autosport.com/motogp/new...austria-defeat

So GOAT or no GOAT, Marc is human after all.

Yeah, Dovi is an intelligent rider. Marc has incredible instincts, great physical shape and he is relentless. Best tyre management has to go to one of my favorites Alex Rins, who has been killing it on the Suzuki!

Big fan here also, never miss a race here on Sky TV, and have travelled to Philip Island 5 times, Ciszano Riminni, and Imola to watch GP and SB racing. Great race at the Bull Ring, Dovi finally found some form and a setup to make a winning fight at the end, he had me out of the seat doing fist pumps (in the air) And such a great ride by Binder, sliding that KTM to victory.

We woke the family up. They all asked their Mom "what were you and dad screaming about"?

True that. A bit more HP and a very talented rider on the best handling bike of the grid can be even more influential.
