Oh, no... he showed moments of brilliance in 2017, particularly in the German GP...

Re: Jonas Folger

Really too bad - hope he and his doctors can get this under control - not just for him to get back to racing but to get back to a normal life.

Re: Jonas Folger

When it comes to all things Moto GP iím a nonbeliever and was thinking Herve is a rally bad payer the pair of them are riding around for relative peanuts on the Tech3 bikes and Folger wanted out but my informant says he really is ill so thatís a real shame,jeez the whole circus is in Sepang in less than two weeks testing.

Re: Jonas Folger

I read that Folger has "Gilbert's Syndrome" which as I understand it, is a liver issue that is usually asymptomatic, although I have read that it can cause extreme fatigue. Hope he recovers fully.

Re: Jonas Folger

Wow! Out a whole year! Hope it;s not something more serious.

I thought at the beginning of 2017 that Folger would be the one on tech 3 to watch!

Hope he makes a full recovery. What a powerhouse team if he does. Yamaha might drop dead if their satellite team outscores their factory team.

Re: Jonas Folger

For you guys who didnít see the Dorna test at Valencia after the last GP there was one of the most incredible interviews iíd Ever heard involving Herve Poncheral he admitted that Yamaha had already told him that when Rossi retires he(Rossi) would run the customer team and Herve and the Tech3 team would be fired and he would be looking to do the same for KTM so the last thing he needs is a serious hiccup at this late stage with Folger a couple weeks before the first test.

Iíll be interested to see if Baz can talk his way out of his BM Superbike ride.
