"Maybe I've got to try and ride like Marc [Marquez] or someone. But we've got no reference like that."

Hmmm I know, I know theres this Aussie who likes fishing alot should look him up sometime Crutch.

Caveat emptor however Guintoli had a look at his telemetry and something along the lines of "f@#k this guy doesn't wanna come out of these corners.

"I don't want to change my riding style because I believe Lorenzo is one of the best."

Your not Lorenzo and never will be your riding a Ducati now btw forget Lorenzo he ain't going to teach how to ride a Ducati.

You should never copy other people. Doesn't matter what subject. (be it riding a bike or playing competitive videogames) Don't do it. It only irritates you because everyone is different in pretty much every way. (weight, height, visual perception, reflexes and so much more)

Lorenzo had a tailor made bike, along with electronics suited to his style, of course Cal had to ride like Lorenzo, now Cal needs to get a degree in engineering or get someone who can explain how that bike is optimized to work, and how it will work with respect to the tires and race.

It's a shame Bridgestone have someone else and a different bike in mind for their tires, but hey, this is entertainment, not real competition.

The invisible hand is shaking it's head.

"Cal beat me, he's a good rider obviously, but to say he rides like Stoner, I'm not sure," the American continued, going on to explain what he had seen of Stoner's style. "When people talk about Stoner, they say you gotta be aggressive, and really work that Ducati. But when you saw Stoner go fast on the Ducati he let the bike move, the bike moved but he didn't. He was smooth. You know, his body, he never fought the bike, he let the bike just move under him. Where Cal, the bike moves, but also he moves a lot." Crutchlow had at least part of the equation, Hayden said, and that was the correct attitude. "Of course it's interesting, and he's got a lot of potential, and certainly got the right attitude, he's not gonna give up the first couple of crashes, but it would be interesting to see."

You don't step on your dancing partners shoes now don't you. An amateur can make a pro look like a right numpty.

Stoner said his approach was always ride the bike the way the bike wanted to be ridden.
