MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...

I seem to recall that when Rossi was on the Honda he disputed that it was just the machine. He was quoted as saying it was 80% the rider, 20% the bike. Fair enough, I'll buy that, although how he can reconcile that statement to his days on the Ducati I'm not quite sure. Anyway, equally the same must apply therefore with Marc Marquez. 80% him, 20% the Honda? Sauce for the goose and all that. It might also be worth pointing out that the performance difference between the Honda RC211V that Rossi rode and the early Yamaha was huge. Whilst the RC213V is clearly the superior motorcycle the difference to the current Yamaha M1 is far less pronounced.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014

TrueFan: Really strange. When Marc talks before a race - and he's expected to win - he always says (with endearing humility) "it will be very difficult". Nowhere in this interview does he mention having any "difficulty!" Is that because it is only "difficult" when he wins? How does that work?
Would have thought the answer to that question was pretty damn obvious. Every race, he (& others) are asked the same simplistic questions by unimaginative journalists so you get the same stock answers. Yes it will be difficult, yes the Yamaha's will be strong, we will try our best etc etc etc. What else can he say? Well, I'll go out and blow all these other pussies into the weeds?

MotoGP » Camier keeps Aspar seat for Silverstone

shamarone: re: "There has been some rumors that Haydens hand is really messed up" viscous rumours. he's drinkin' milk.
Well, I didn't like the sound of having three bones removed - seems a pretty radical thing to do and expect to recover full functionality. If Hayden doesn't return (& I hope he does) then there is no longer any American in the series. Can't imagine Dorna will want that to happen so who is the next American 'big thing' we can expect to see heading MotoGP's way?

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains first defeat of 2014

SuperSic: I for one found that race boring, mostly a precession. Watching Marquez's riding style throughout that race, and reading the comments at the end, i'm saying that he threw that race. He didn't want the media pressure, and now that he's let people believe that he's not untouchable next week he'll disappear again with style. Watch the race again, there was less body movement, less aggression, and sometimes he just seemed to be throwing the bike sideways for it to look like he's trying hard. Another page in the Marquez show.
Care in the Community really has a lot to answer for.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks finger injury

kiwimike: @ Llarry, It's nothing like as bad as the finger injury Smith has been coping with for most of the season. Pray tell - what relevance is Smith's finger injury to Valentino's finger injury?? Just curious.
I shall pray tell. Smith has ridden throughout most of this year with a much worse finger injury yet I can't recall even a single instance when either he or any other posters have used this as an excuse for his performance. All this weekend we have heard the usual bleating from Rossi fans about how he could win at Brno. Go Rossi & all that, rah rah rah. When the result tomorrow is Marquez, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, with Rossi some way back in either 4th or 5th (or lower), I'll be interested to count how many times Rossi fans post about the finger injury slowing him down. Like you, just curious.

MotoGP » Marquez denies Ducati tow a tactic

This is just mischief-making from Rossi. 'Valentino Rossi believes it could be more than just a coincidence and that Marquez is consciously trying to use the Ducatis to his advantage.' Rossi's wasting his time trying to get into MM's head and even if it were deliberate, well as some other posters have said, it would be a pretty smart thing to do. The Ducatis will be quick at the start & get in the way whilst Marc makes a clean break (assuming he gets the start).
