MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

For those that are trying to justify the TT by comparing the dangers to MotoGP, that is just trying to evade the critical truth. Yes, riding a bike at 217 mph on a curcuit is dangerous and yes riders have got killed in MotoGP. BUT circuits are designed and licensed to minimise the risks as much as they can. Large runoffs. Gravel traps. Tarmac escape roads. Air fencing. Even then there are tragic accidents. If you make a mistake at the TT (& other road races) then it's stone walls, trees, telegraph poles, even buildings that you have to contend with. A slight mistake and that's it. RIP. Redding shouldn't be criticised for his views on the event, especially when he has just lost some close friends to the event. Equally though, those who do it know the risks and should be allowed to if they want. The fact that those who do are nuttier than squirrel poo doesn't really come into it.

MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle

Rossi fans live in a dream world. Even though Marquez was well down at the start of the race he had no trouble picking his way through to the front. He overtook Rossi on a mistake but he could have done it at any time, as he has done all season. Truth is, MM has a second a lap in him over everybody including Rossi. All the talk here of Rossi winning at Mugello is BS. Unless Marquez makes a mistake it will once again be his to lose. It's not fun to watch but MM is SO much better than everyone else that it is becoming processional. Unless Marquez gets bored, he will break every one of Rossi's records before he is finished.

MotoGP » Understeer woe for Crutchlow

Well SuperSick58, what a revelation!!! Where have you been for the past 20 years??? Yes everybody knows that Ducati's have a long wheelbase and that is the root cause of the chronic understeer problems. And it's because the motor is a 90 degree V four where two cylinders point almost directly forwards. If you don't have a long wheelbase then the cylinders hit the front wheel which is kind of inconvenient. Glad your 'expertise' is free. That's all it's worth.
