Not bad I suppose. I snatch a few extra miles by coasting to Baker, enjoying the cycle-speed breeze. But out here there are no bad route finding decisions. Smooth dirt or broken asphalt, spin a Titus is even better than I recall – a classic one-way route which, after an initial washboard approach, winds

I-10 was obviously out on a 250, there was more fun to be had on 60 up to Wickenburg, then back southwest via Salome and up 72 to Parker on the Colorado river.

In early August, the motorcycle World Cup 2021 returns with its royal class MotoGP with two races on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg back from your summer break. The Grand Prix of Styria stands for August 8 in the calendar, the Grand Prix of Austria for the 15th of August.

Yamaha Werkspilot Fabio Quartararo travels with a lead of 34 points as leaders for the first of the two Spielberg races. And he believes there is no reason to hope that Yamaha will not go completely on the fastest route in the calendar.

Quartararo, who was leading the championship ahead of the Jerez weekend, had undergone arm-pump surgery back in 2019, but said Sunday was the first time he had been affected by it at the Spanish circuit.

There are roads leading north up to Amboy and Kelso next day. I kind of hope they’ll be wide gravel dirt with shady borders, but will take what I get. Out of 29 Palms it’s actually deserted crumbling blacktop, like parts of old Route 66.

Already last year there were two races in Spielberg. Quartararo, who was still driving for Petronas-Yamaha, finished her on P8 and P13 after he did not get the vote of his M1 to no two weekends. The then Yamaha Werkspilot Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales brought P5 and P9 (Rossi) or P10 and flew with brake defect violently (Vinales). In the first of the two races they escaped conceivable just under a disaster , which would have been far greater than just athletic.

Quartararo looks no reason why Yamaha should not run better this year. "It's true that Austria was a disaster for us last year. But that was due to the general problems that had as previous year, especially in the field of electronics. Since then, our bike has been greatly improved, which concerns the breeze. Our Holeshot Device also works better. With regard to electronics, I do not see any problems at the moment. That's why I believe that Austria can not be a bad route for us. "

A restriction makes the World Cup leader in its foresight on the double header in Spielberg although the Double Header. "Sure, the topspeed will of course be missing us. But that's aware of a long time," says Quartararo and reminds: "Nevertheless, it succeeded in 2019 to drive on the podium. And 'Vale' and Maverick came as a fourth and fifth to the podium Aim."

So the World Cup leader is convinced before this year's double header in Austria, that Spielberg "is not a bad route for us, but just one that is not quite as simple as others."
