MotoGP » Pedrosa: Valentino is quite impressive

lux: "despite feeling his pace was better than that of Rossi's" Such a classical Rossi's magic to manage to stay in front of quicker riders. I remember Crutchlow's on Rossi's first year back in Yamaha: "I felt I was always a bit faster but Rossi always finished in front".
Not Rossi magic, just really good race craft. I think all the racers here have experienced the same .

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK

Hasn't beaten a team mate? Yes, that is the first rule. But when your team mate is an alien named Stoner than that doesn't say an awful lot. I think he held up quite well compared to Rossi, even though he did not fully agree the development path chosen by ducati and Rossi. And well yeah that 800cc honda was not really made for him, but for at the time honda's great promise.

MotoGP » Ducati team manager to run Rossi's Moto3 team

For those that disagree with me, would you care to enlighten? Thing is, for us spectators, it is hard to point out the good or bad a team manager or testrider is performing. But based on what we've seen, Vito can, in my opinion hardly be regarded as a good team manager or good test rider. As a team manager, I have not seen decent change management, nor any strategic insights coming from him. A Livio Suppo heading to Honda for instance would be a decent example as to how Alberto Puig's influence was reduced in the team structure, getting Stoner to Honda and maintaining him eventually as a test rider. These are actions that we spectators can refer to as good thinking. Now what has Vito been doing and what successes have we seen from him? I am sure on a personal level he is a cool guy, but honestly I think he is better off in moto3.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: I don’t have anything on the table

It is not only a factory spec bike a rider is after, but it is also factory SUPPORT. And that is something quite different, to have an extended amount of possibilities and resources for you as a rider. In addition, the fuel tank of the satellite bikes vs the factory bikes are located differently, that is the reason why Cal suffers slower lap times early on. Also, when did Lin Jarvis EVER spoke truthfully?

MotoGP » Max Biaggi completes Pramac Ducati MotoGP test

@therealDave, that's just to ridicule the "if it's not yellow than it's not good" brigade :) In all fairness, I respect Rossi very much for all his achievements and I have always enjoyed his post race celebrations, but man, some of his fans are just that, *his fans without love for the sport. With respect to Biaggi's performance, that is quite impressive, seeing that the test was rain interupted and taking into account that he's not ridden a race bike for 8 months, hasn't ridden a carbon brakedisc bike for 8 years and has never ridden the bridgestones before. As a trackday enthusiast myself, I would be quite happy if I would switch to an unknown bike and tires and be 2.5 secs of some benchmark time.
