Oh this? This is MotOPPO GP, Kinja’s one and only Grand Prix motorcycling fantasy game. You play by predicting who’s gonna be on pole, who’s gonna be on the podium, and who’s gonna eat Grade-A roadway. And also you say “Screw Jordan Sargent”, even if you have no reason to.

Previously on actual MotOPPO GP...

Maverick Viñales won the first race of the new, non-wing season, his first with Yamaha on the first try, but Johann Zarco could have shocked everyone and chopped us of points in the Process. Once again, sneaky Rossi is on the podium.

Coming up...

We’re going to Argentina! It’s hot there, too, but because it’s not a desert, the rain would be more expected, but really, it’s sunny there so there’s no need to worry about plumbing being subpar. The team that needs to worry is Jorge Lorenzo’s, whose debut was not what it was cracked up to be. Rossi will gun for better consistency, Marquez will want to win again, and Viñales? Well, let’s just say he wants to put this away now.
