MotoGP » Stoner raises bar in final practice.


School either you missed your prefix 'shouldn't have been let out of' or you spoke to the wrong doctor ......... any mature adult posting those sorts of blatherings need a psychatrist I'm not saying Valle can't win (tho I wouldn't put money on him tomorrow). I'm saying the childish name calling betwen the Rossi & Stoner chauvanists (you ain't any of you race fans - just groupies) is pathetic.

MotoGP » Stoner raises bar in final practice.


I'm in the group that reckon introducing 800s may have sounded the death knell for Moto GP. Usually races are more boring / less closely fought than they used to be and generally more predictable. That ain't good for Moto GP. But I'm baffled and bemused (nice literaray touch that)why there's anxiety that the more the bikes evolve and the differences between 'em become less the recing will get worse. I figured it'd be closer fought not less, bit like the R6 cup. And if it didn't the main factor would be the rider, not the kit. [Yeah I know the kit de-skills the job to a degree, but that only goes so far - Otherwise Marco would be sitting on Casey's back wheel].

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa out of US Grand Prix.


Well before Kees & Grumpy fall out ....... IMHO it was Honda that were the main mover in going to 800s. They sold it to Dorna who, instead of telling Honda FOAD pushed the idea to the other factories - tho that's more simplified than slightly. The result of which is given a choice between a free ticket for a Moto GP race and WSBK at the same circuit I've a stong suspicion a lot of people would take the WSBK option. Shame Dan the Dwarf's out of LaGuna Seca - great respect's due for him even attempting it.

MotoGP » Stoner 'satisfied' as surge continues.


I'm well pleased Stoner's back on form and the championship's not another one horse race. That's great. But the pro-Stoner mob crowing at Valle's supporters and vice versa when Rossi does well reminds me of a ******* playground. They're both talented - Never mind all the **** about the electronics do it for Stoner. Everyone has elecronics, Stoner has bottle too. Not convinced he is really a match for the GOAT. On the other hand to be fair he's not had time to prove himself on that score. Personally I'd like to see is either Edwards or Hayden on the top step a Laguna Seca, but more than that I'd like to see good close racing with the lead swapping a lot.

MotoGP » Stoner zeroes in on Sachsenring.


Not so sure Kees .......... not unless he's pulling race length practices. But, then again, I suppose that's how he will use FP1. So, could be - at least in the sense if he's OK then he'll probably be OK later. But if he's not OK then but the tyres are close to OK then there's still a slim chance they can improve set up later. If he does win at Sachsenring too 'though he has to be at least join favourite for the championship.
