I don’t think I’ve ever felt this much loss in the paddock since Sic’s passing. It’s an unworthy comparison, but there just happens to be so many things ending this weekend, so many people leaving all at once, that it feels like the sport has packed up and moved into a whole different era altogether within one weekend. The transition of seasons has never been easy on me, but this is probably as close as it gets to a landslide. Luis lost his shot at the title, though still somewhat pleased for Maverick. Nicky’s swan song with the Desmo and Cal’s at Tech3. Losing Matt Roberts and Azi Farni.
