@bhukhbedia they r following each other because they r almost evenly matched..setting more or less the same lap times. if one makes the slightest of the mistake the other 2 will pounce. and it's nice to see these guys on podium showing respect for each other instead of resorting to snubs and snides like kids. fierce rivals on-track, best buddies off-track..that is something good and mature.

These guys are fellow competitors not rivals. I sure they hate being beaten but don't want to look like sore losers.

Jorge doesn't want to upset anyone, Pedro knows his place in the top three these days and if Stoner doesn't win (unlikely now) he doesn't seem too worried as there's always next race whoop some butt.

The only reason they've been on the podium so much is because of the lack of competitive bikes. Can hardly be the greatest rivalry can it, when we have only 4 fast bikes on the grid this year. With spies off the pace, they're gonna be the only ones left to take the podium.

Cant even compare the recent moto GP results to how it used to be, in the 990 era and 500s. The reason they're on the podium is because tr Ducati is nowhere to be seen, leaving only them on factory bikes, everyone else is on customer bikes or fancy superbikes!

Moto GP is rubbish these days, WSBK and BSB are better!!

expelati (spelling wrong) bloke should revert back to 500cc. Thats when races were proper battles!! Look at the last ever full 500cc race at Phillip Island 2001 - 7 or 8 bikes battling for the lead throughout the whole race, the whole group changing places throughout, that was racing. That last race at Estoril was a parade! Procession = boring. Motogp of late is procession!
Get rid of electronics, bring rider skill back. The 500's required ultra throttle control skils! Rant over

it doesn't really matter who we think is the greatest 3 to fill the podiums , because stats say its the present 3!!
one says pedro being up there is a joke , !really!!...facts say he is there!! and the only way he got there is by racing and getting on the podium.
its only 3 races into the season and this 3 have been up there together 4 times more than any other 3 racers.
so i think its reasonable to say that by the time this 3 are no longer racing it is going to be one hell of a fine stat.

Dorna are def. stetching it by claiming just because these 3 have finished on the podium together most it means it's the greatest rivalry.

What it means is that a) the factory Hondas and Yamahas are much better than the rest and b) spies needs to up his game.

Yeah. Greatest rivalry.... of numbers on paper.

Greatest rivalry to ever grace our tv screens though is the rossi/biaggi/gibernau era. Edge-of-your-seat "OMG who's gonna cross the finish line first" rivalry. Beyond 'greatest', its downright legendary.

It's Rainey, Schwantz and Doohan. It's not just the racing they did, it's their attitude.

Rainey: Grim and unrelenting determination,
Schwantz: Podium or hospital
Doohan: Ultra-focus and frightnening tension

This was the rivalry of the rivalries.
