Current defending World Champion Marc Marquez has won all 4 races so far this year. After last nights race in Spain where Marquez handed the other 3 leading contenders to the crown, 2nd place getter Valintino Rossi, 3rd place getter Dani Pedrosa and 4th place getter Jorge Lorenzo an absolute riding lesson I can not see him getting knocked off his perch at the top anytime soon.

We are disappointed that ONE isn't showing the Moto 2 and 3 races in full as well as the main race - often the racing in the support classes is better according to Mr Rayne.
The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.
The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely knowing what joy and pain will come of it - Roguer

Australian teen Jack Miller signs for MotoGP with LCR Honda

Australian teenager Jack Miller will make the big step up from Moto3 to ride in MotoGP next season, the LCR Honda team run by former racer Lucio Cecchinello has announced.

The 19-year-old follows in the tracks of retired compatriot Casey Stoner, who made his MotoGP debut in 2006 with the same non-works Honda team before going on to win two titles in the top category with Ducati and Repsol Honda.

The Queenslander will be partnered by Britain's Cal Crutchlow, who currently races for the main Ducati team, with Honda providing a factory specification bike.

"It's a dream come true. I think that every rider would like to race at the highest level in the World Championship with a Honda," said Miller in a team statement.

"It is certainly a big jump from Moto3 to MotoGP, but I am convinced that we are ready and that, step-by-step, learning every day, we can do a great job."

Miller is leading Spaniard Alex Marquez, younger brother of Honda's dominant MotoGP world champion Marc, in the Moto3 championship - the smallest category - with five rounds remaining and has been hailed as a man to watch.

"For me, he's somebody like a Kevin Schwantz - he's raw, he's ready to go and he's got plenty of talent. He's a star of the future," five-times champion Mick Doohan said recently.

Cecchinello said Miller had the ability to succeed and would be given time to adjust.

"Jack will need time to learn how to ride a 1,000cc machine but there is no rush, and next year will just be a learning season for him in the new class," he said.

"Honda has a long term plan with him and we believe that with no pressure Jack will be able to show his talent in MotoGP," added the Italian.
