Pedrosa Wins The LolGP Funny Electric Pocket Bike Race

ven though to some, riding an electric pocket bike might sound more like a frustrating thing, especially when stepping down from a 200 horsepower superbike. To most of us, however, racing such miniature machines is a major source of fun, especially when having buddies involved in this.

This is the LolGPThis uncanny race lined up at the start no less than nine of the premier class riders, brothers Pol and Alex Espargaro, Stefan Bradl, Dani Pedrosa, Bradley Smith, Maverick Vinales, Cal Crutchlow, Alvaro Bautista and Jack Miller.

The race track matched the dimensions of the bike, and such a circuit could easily fit in the backyard or on the lawn of any house. The sporting rules were also pretty relaxed, with no penalties handed over for jumped starts, or huge corner cuts to get at the front of the pack.

Neither did race direction punish riders who pushed others to the ground, or who dragged their opponents out of the way to pass them. Bautista crashed into the rear of Aleix Espargaro and both took a fall from the wuthering height of 8 inches (20 cm) or so, without being harmed, obviously.

In the end, it was Dani Pedrosa who won the race, possibly because he was only mildly involved in Wacky Races antics... and rode a bike sized more appropriately to his stature. Wonder how Scott Redding or Loris Baz would've looked in this race...
Lorenzo, Rossi and Marquez did not race electric pocket bikes

It doesn't take an expert eye to observe three major names missing from this race, Jorge Lorenzo, championship leader Valentino and the defending champion Marc Marquez.

We can only guess that they, plus several others are concentrating all their physical and mental efforts to be in the best shape possible for the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend.

While Marquez has lost the battle for the title and aims only at winning races for the team and his own records, the two Yamaha riders are fighting fiercely. Rossi has a 14-point lead over Lorenzo, and both riders are credited to be in equally strong shapes and mind frames for the final rounds of the 2015 season.

Motegi might get Lorenzo very close to Rossi if he wins and Rossi only finishes third or below, but if a reverse scenario occurs on Sunday, we may see Rossi getting too far ahead of the Spaniard and claim the 10th title of his career.

We haven't placed our bets yet, but we are anxiously waiting for the first times practice sessions, trying to assess the performance both riders, and only then make a call.
