o… safe to say a lot has changed in the last fortnight in the land oif two wheels.

We catch up to last week’s BIG news – Liberty Media has bought 86% of Dorna Sports, MotoGP’s Commercial rights holder for $4.2 billion. Now, assuming the deal beats the European Competition commission, what does it mean for both sports? Does MotoGP need new ownership? What DOES it need to take itself to the next level. The boys ponder the thought.

Also, on the US GP itself – Maverick VInales put together the most complete MotoGP weekend of his career to take pole, the sprint and the win to become the first man in the modern era of MotoGP to win on three different bikes. Is this a flash in the pan, or something more?

What about the other protagonists? Marc Marquez led but had his front brake fail, Pedro Acosta is absolutely still him via another podium finish, and the Ducati continues to have rear-end chatter problems, ala Pecco Bagnaia looking a little bit sus early on again.

Also big change at Yamaha, with Fabio Quartararo staying on a new two-year contract, but after 25 years managing the team, Lin Jarvis will be retiring at season’s end… and it quickly turned into a rant at how BAD Honda is.

All that and more on another Motorsport101!
