Come on, come all, and play MotOPPO GP, Kinja’s leading MotoGP Fantasy game. France has a new president, but who cares? The race is in Des Moines, Iowa. No, really. Don’t let Dorna Sports fool you, they’ve been racing in Des Moines for years.

Previously...

Yup, Rossi is dumb to get tires like that. Meanwhile, Johann Zarco is over-eager, which means he can’t stop Emperor Lorenzo from salvaging a disappointing third infront of his constituents, which means race winner Dani Pedrosa is LORD, and will Make Andalusia Great Again. Jack Miller crashed. The fucking asshole.

Coming up this week...

Yes, yes, I know there’s the Indy 500 and you want to see Fernando Alonso win (or lose) that race, but fuck you, we’re going to Des Moines, Iowa where the racing is more spectacular and unpredictable, even if the track itself is a half-job.

Rossi will want to equip his Force powers here so he can win, or else his chances of becoming a 10-time champion will go up in smokes. Which I guess is better than seeing Jorge’s bike go up in smoke. Whatever. This is Zarco’s home race, and a win here will pretty much cement his legacy.
