MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner comeback wouldn't make a lot of sense


MrSmart: Anybody who beats Rossi is a villain. Casey did what nobody else had previously done, dispel the myth that Rossi was best. This sits uncomfortably with Rossi 'fanboys' who cannot but disparage Stoner for shattering their illusions. Stoner is also then guilty of retiring whilst WC. Unforgivable.
Blacks or whites never tell the truth dear MrSmart. Rossi's superior ability is not an illusion - an illusion would be to believe he is and has always been the best. Racing is on a per-race and a per-year basis and one can only really assess the ability of the rider paired with his motorcycle on that basis. So in all regards, it's impossible to really tell who is "the best" in general. Also, another thing: being a fan of a rider doesn't mean thinking he is "the best". You need to live under the concept of "the best" in order to have a "best" rider, don't you - but what happens if you don't?

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner comeback wouldn't make a lot of sense


BrazilDUluwita: Man these people who writes articles, they exaggerate things. I watch the whole post race interview on MotoGP. The guy wrote this article is wrong. (...) Rossi NEVER said IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
Yup... crash.net has a lively motorcycle community but it also resorts to yellowing it out and regularly posting flame reports. This one is a good example. The previous one was a comparison of Rossi/2006 to Marquez/2015 (and their chance to a comeback) and another one was how many laps in 2015 were led by Lorenzo compared to Rossi. It's an easy recipe: Create a controversy involving Rossi and just watch the clicks rise.

MotoGP » MotoGP Catalunya - Full Qualifying Results


myselff: At least Ducati stayed loyal & supported MotoGP & their racing efforts unlike the Japanese who throw in the towel when problems appear. Suzuki should be given a harder time if anything and not Ducati.
The 2008 global economic recession hit everybody very hard. All factories had an exercise in damage limitation in their hands. For a factory to remain in MotoGP the gains had to outwiegh the losses, which for some were simply excessive. When you don't have money it isn't a matter of "loyalty" anymore. It is just a matter of mere survival. And of course, nobody "should be given a harder time". Allowing for participating opportunities unfortunately has become a necessity, not an option.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


(cont) Benefit: The ability to shift a higher mass when turning means that the bike itself needs to lean somewhat less for a given turning speed. Obviously the more advanced the electronics the more these factors come into play and we have reached an age where you simply can't get away with it as easily. It's only indicative of the importance of this that all of the truly competitive riders are of diminutive size and all bar none are lighter than Rossi. In all, obviously it's not a game breaker but it may be the cause behind that damned 0.1-0.2 of a second that take him to the 3rd row.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


MotoMarc: Jack it's not age if that's what you're thinking. (...)
Since you want to discuss this and since I don't want to be giving the wrong impressions I'll spit it out: It's not about the age, it's about the weight. Rossi is considerably heavier than the other guys. A heavier rider creates two problems and one benefit: Problem 1: Since the rider's CoG is above the CoG of the machine, the overall, combined CoG (in the case of a heavier rider) is higher as a result. This means that at low gears less acceleration can be achieved before wheelying. Problem 2: Higher overall weight means lower acceleration in general (cont)

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


cyanide: Hey Jack, Dovi comes in at 67 kg, Cal at 69, Iannone is 67, sure MM is only 59 and Dani 51, but Rossi's 64 kg is really not an issue compared to most of these guys. I suspect that he has even lost a bit of weight lately - he looks more gaunt than ever. Rossi has a good record of poles throughout his MotoGP career at his more favoured tracks - 4 at Jerez, 5 at Mugello, 4 at Catalunya, 3 at Brno, 4 at Sepang, 3 at Valencia. Get the picture. He just is not doing it lately. The qualifying format does not seem to suit him. He seems to need a bit more time to get his rhythm and feel to hit the really fast lap times that he is still capable of.
thanks for the reply, and you are right. It seems Rossi isn't really any heavier than the others and maybe the drawbacks and the benefits cancel-out each other at this level of small differences.

Ah... excellent point. See now what you did, I have to take everything back now :)
Good man, I like that response. Most people would've come up with something else to argue just for the sake of arguing :)
Yeah, discussing is not fighting for me. It's liberating when you don't identify with any opinion. Keep mind open and always learn!
