pcxmax.jorge smoked every 1 in 2010 without dout even if rossi didnt break is leg and danny was no match and all casey was doing his throwing it down the road.and its going to be the same this year by the looks of my opion jogre is more consistent rider than casey maybe not as fast on a single lap but race pace jorge is unsttopable he just prove it in spain cataluya when 6 laps to go when the tires by then are detroyed and beat danny by 5 secs

@Danny Powell agreed jorge is a good solid performer on a bike that seems to suit most circuits and appears to handle better/put less stress on the tyres but I think Casey is prepared to put his life on the line a bit more and I also think he is more skilled, its going to be a close season!

before reading the theory that it was to help change direction I thought it was a confidence thing when they are on the limit and the grip was uncertain to have the "leg" ready for a dab

YAMAHA 1,2,3,4... at Silverstone
absolutely in fact YAMAHA 2012,13 14 15 16...

HONDA would be well within there right to pull out of Motogp given the bias shown towards Ducati and Yamaha by Dorna through unfair rule changes supposedly to assist CRT, we've already lost Casey to the sport will Honda be next, this championship is very quickly becoming a joke, get your act together Dorna.

the whole leg out trip has nothing to do with imitating vale.
these bikes are being pushed to the limit and coming into the corners hard on the brakes is lifting the back wheel off the tarmac , the leg out is to counter balance the back wheel swaying left and right to make sure its inline before falling into a sharp lean into the corner.
i'm very surprised some people cannot understand what is is they are seeing!

no, it,s rossi who first do leg out in motogp or at least who made it popular.that was when he made switch to yamaha.even rossi jokingly said want to take some royalty from the ones who follow that move.

@ramon zarate.
get a grip mate!
fantasy and reality don't mix in the same soup , its a natural reflex for most riders coming into a corner , some even do it at a certain spot every time as a natural body alarm to tell them the exact moment to start the lean into a turn.
rhythm is the most important aspect for a rider to maintain , and most have certain body language traits that come in naturally at certain points to keep it in harmony.
to believe a rider would do these things only because vale does is extreme ignorance of the blind kind.

dacron prepare for incoming. it was in fact rossi who started the leg out while braking technique. and then a number of other riders duplicated. where have you been for the last few years?

"The counter argument from HRC will surely be that working on set-up without the tyre spec available for the race is of limited value".

Would not matter to the team anyway as they would probably pick the wrong tyre come race day.
