MotoGP » Record 19 rounds on provisional 2014 MotoGP calendar

I'd agree with the guy above complaining about the too-long off-season. Now that Dorna became interested in South America again and introduced 2 races down there, this could be used to hold races further towards winter, because winter in the northern hemisphere is... summer in the southern one. However, as the calendar suggests, instead of having them at the extreme ends of the calendar, we have them closer to the middle - September and April. All in all in order to eliminate the extremely long off-season I would expand the calendar using southern hemisphere & Doha rounds to fill-up the close to winter slots so as the weather isn't too bad. Back-to-back races should also be turned to normal, (a blank weekend between them) cost permitting. A return to South Africa could help a lot with this too.

MotoGP » Crutchlow, Smith and Poncharal talk Tech 3

"I think that if people look at their jobs and they saw that each year they were getting better if they weren't getting promoted or someone else came in from a lower position into their job and had a guarantee of getting better stuff I think that most people would feel the same as me,” Don't worry, next year you'll understand perfectly well why this "someone else" came from a "lower position". :)

MotoGP » Rossi: I’ve never seen a rookie like Marquez

There's a small difference between Rossi's and Marquez's rookie years: It's called a 500 two-stroke. I bet not many people here actually know what this means but today's 4-stroke bike with the ultra-evolved electronics has absolutely nothing to do with the learning curve of a vicious 500 2-stroke. Nobody learned how to properly ride that thing without a good bunch of high-side crashes first. Which would normally mean no chance on a first-outing championship.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: I looked like Tarzan!

Those b*stards can be hard to kill this way. It happened to me once too - one of those slipped inside my cordura jacket through the tiny slit between the sleeve and my wrist, crawled right up to my shoulder and stung me there twice. I rried to rub it to death but to no avail. I had to stop and take it out of there with my hand and I got stung again between the digits of my middle finger. That one hurt quite a bit. The ****** even flew the circle of triumph above my head before it got away. Owned by a wasp... :)

MotoGP » Hayden: Carbon frame had a lot of potential

Carbon of Aluminum alloy the Ducati suffered and suffers from understeer. So, it's not just the construction of the frame. It's something else that eludes Ducati engineers. I'm no engineer and I can only guess: They lack the understanding of how the latest generations of the Bridgestone tyres work. If they didn't know how to make sportsbikes in general they wouldn't have amassed all those WSBK trophies. However, the tyres there are very different and we all know how important they are. Rossi alone needed months and many races to find how to alter his set-up and his riding style in order to make the Bridgestones work for him (2008). And that's on a bike he knew like the back of his hand.
