Why are so many comments on Crash so immature? Are most posters kids? Or just ignoramuses? Enough of the tripe! Grow up!

This is a very exciting year in MotoGP. Lorenzo, Rossi, Marquez, Pedrosa, Crutchlow and Dovisioso. Major talents, all.

@Jim Clausen
Yes Jim, it's an exiting year indeed.
The only ingredient missing to make it VERY exciting
is CS! Altough the way the Honda is working this year
he'd be checking out real quick...

I suspected from the start that it was most likely a setup issue with the new frame. The tyres are manufactured to such high standards for these guys it was always unlikely that a bad one slipped through.

It is going to be a tough year for Jorge and he will have some self doubts from time to time but I think he has the ability to challenge for the title right down to the wire. It is still very early in the season and a lot can happen.

I think Jorge was riding Spies POS by accident?!?!?!?. I really think he was, becase Jorge exclaimed,"I felt like i was crashing and crashing and crashing"! hahaha! He would've got better results with My 2000 M750!

Hes losing his confidence, simple as that....
nothing more nothing less... once you question your ability or your bikes and or tires you have lost!

Confindence is everything without it your lost!

There's no doubt Lorenzo had no confidence in his bike at Le Mans. If you are inferring that he has lost his confidence as a Moto GP racer, you'd do well not to follow your instincts when gambling or investing.
