Aprilia has the banana, Miller has the blues

Jack is a special case (but if you look closely, is there a single pilot on the starting grids other than a special case?) He is currently in Australia, a country as big as a continent (14 times France) with 26 millions. inhabitants is also a special case … And he does motocross (and of course in good ozzie, he drinks beer in the evening when his MotoGP teammates drink their mouths (Bagnaia) or get married (Marini) in Ibiza … By the way, He was born in Townsville, at the foot of the Cairn Peninsula in the north of the country. .. An extremely violent environment … conducive to the spirit of adventure …
His sporting career is also a case … In 2014, when he was not a starter in Moto3 (beaten by Alex Márquez!) He went straight to MotoGP, forgetting about the Moto2 box …
Of course, my career in MotoGP didn’t start the easy way, at LCR I rode a Honda Open Class alongside Cal Crutchlow. So it was like racing a year in Moto2 “Some blatantly Miller … He’s not even in the top ten, but who cares, he skipped the Moto2 class, that nonsense of motorcycle GPs. When he first plays an official Honda at the Marc VDS, is the arrival of the unique electronics Magneti Marelli! He wins the first of his three MotoGP victories, on a completely rainless track that dries up in the Netherlands … Overcoming a Márquez who does not want to take the stupid risks of Miller … ” I’m lucky to be fast on wet. It takes a lot of pressure if you are not good enough as a beginner in MotoGP or if the team of the bike is not of the best quality. “
In 2018 he moved to Ducati Pramac, then to the factory team. There he will win two more GPs in 2021 at Jerez and Bugatti. Not very prolific, that’s for sure, his best year is also 2021, he finished fourth overall … As Ducati fell into a frantic youth, he was 27 years old and had few records, at the end of the season the would expel. will move to KTM. Sad of course, but Jack has an explanation for Ducati’s setbacks, because he’s not the only one who has faced the curse of this team since the Stoner title (the only one for the brand) in 2007. .. Another Australian of the way …
Of course, Jack is a victim of the Italian brand’s lack of title strategy, but there is another very important aspect in this sport. Ducati does not send any observers to the track when all the big names of the other brands are entitled to it and above all they want it … “ No one looks at me along the track. In the end, we are a factory team and we are a factory pilot and we have no track information !. We don’t even use video analytics, although it would be very helpful to see and improve detail. Every little tip helps us move forward. “
Well, we wish you success in KTM, the character is endearing, that said as the Austrian brand lost its concessions also lost its superb, Pedrosa made them a real missile when he could fly as he wanted in private tests. This year, after a few days of official testing, we can test the modifications proposed by the factory, but we no longer design a new bike. And KTM is struggling, its best Binder rider is sixth overall with 93 points in the time trial (it’s two points ahead of Miller, they’ll be teammates in 2023!). The other drivers of the Austrian brand? Oliveira is ten more than a hundred points from Quartararo, as the two riders of Tech3, the satellite team that rides factory bikes, are respectively ahead of derjo (Gardner) and derjo (Fernandez) in the classification. 9 and 5 points. on the board in eleven GPs … In fact, it’s time to bring solid people to deal with the situation, but a direct guy like Miller will find it hard to support the dictatorial side of management … good luck ozzie !
