MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal


The contract was 2 years because it appeases both parties fears: From Rossi's side, in the event of 2015 not being a good year, he wouldn't want to be searching for a ride for 2016. The joy and gratitude in his message, is indicative of him being somewhat worried about being considered as a top-spec factory rider. From Yamaha's side, given that they may lose Lorenzo to Honda they wouldn't want to be looking for 2 competitive riders - which Vale has shown to be this year. They keep a "safe" spot with Vale, and will play with either Pedrosa (less likely) or another talent (more likely) to fill Jorge's void position. All the above, of course on the background of the unknowns, which are the mandatory use of spec-ECU in 2015, and of course, more importantly, the introduction of the Michelin tyres in 2016. We might see interesting things/results that year.

MotoGP » Catalunya MotoGP - Race Results


What a change of wind and racing paradigm Marquez has brought. In the "petrified" Stoner years, this race would be unthinkable without bad blood, whining and bitter comments afterwards. I was so glad to see them all shaking hands after the race, all having enjoyed the paint-scraping and having somehting to be happy about (except for Lorenzo perhaps). The race was an amazing edge-of-the-seat thriller. A little bit of more variation in the results in relation to the previous races and it would have been sublime racing perfection.

MotoGP » Catalunya MotoGP - Race Results


1050cc: In 2006 Rossi had a major problem with tyres. He DNF a few times because of them. Nicky Hayden won and he deserved it (he rode great that year)! If you think MotoGP in 2006 was boring then you really should give up on this sport.
Yeah, I still remember Assen from that year..., Valencia, Catalunya (with that Gibernau-Capirossi first turn super-accident)... and that race where Pedrosa took out Hayden, severely hampering his title effort. That year was awesome, really.

MotoGP » Marquez straight up to speed in Mugello


Rockstar84: MotoGP has become like F1, Marquez becoming another Vettel! Waiting for the booing to start!
Vettel's booing isn't because he won so constistently, it's because he always has this uncool look on his face. A racer isn't just about speed. MotoGP's Vettel was Stoner, not Marquez. Marquez is passionate, always smiling, and always eager to scrap paint with fellow racers. He lacks Rossi's flamboyance and fan rapport of course but his riding is so passionate that he always strikes me with awe. He's the only guy on the grid who can ride a MotoGP bike in a way that is visibly wiggling and moving. With Marquez you can almost... feel the limit the bike is being ridden at.

MotoGP » Six of the best: Mugello MotoGPs


2004 was also very spectacular, and in my opinion would make a fine addition to this list. The race started n dry conditions, with some crazy, crazy racing - on occasion 3 or even 4 motorcycles would reach the end of the straight in... line abreast fashion, all trying to out-brake each-other. Just when things started settling down, here comes the rain, and re-shuffle the deck - back then rain meant a race-restart, with the grid being filled by riders in the order they crossed the line in the last lap before the race was red-flagged. Even more crazy racing ensued, with Rossi bouncing from 6th position to eventually win that thriller of a race.
