Jack Cracks it

 

Well, it has been a long time coming but Jack Miller has finally won his first dry Moto GP race for Ducati!!

I'm a "Johnny-come-lately" to watching Moto GP again, basically missing all of the action from about 2005 until 2018 when my young bloke, Will, started showing some interest in it. So I can't claim to know Jack's back story or his trajectory through to this win very well at all. He does come across as your typical Aussie lad though so I, like many of our countrymen (and women) feel a certain connection to him - he feels like one of your mates or your brother's mates if you get what I mean.

The reality is probably very different as he is most likely far more sophisticated then your average Aussie yobbo. His accent changes during interviews with reporters of different nationalities would seem to hint at the fact there is more than meets the eye. 10 years in Europe will probably do that.

Which brings me to the point of this post.


Well done Jack!! Bloody awesome!!

It has been a long time since we have had an Aussie to cheer for (remember, I missed the Stoner years)  and I must say it feels nice! Fingers crossed for some more crazy celebrations.....





Cheers

  2. Nice that there's a significant southern hemisphere presence again, bloody well done. I still for the life of me can't figure out why the Pom fans in particular hated Casey so much. I thought he was a real straight ace. Anyway, every success to Jack!

  3. Yep, I can confirm Casey is a very decent bloke. Maybe his integrity was something the average bike riding Pommy thug couldn't grasp? I have met some Aussies who don't understand him either, for sort of the same reason. Interestingly, I don't think he gives a toss what people think of him. Life is good and he is happy.
