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.

MotoGP » Poll: Who should get the Factory Ducati ride?

TalentFan: Sorry for the late reply. Crutchlow did have the option to stay at Monster Yamaha with which he would arguably get much better results than with the Ducati. I mean, it would be impossible to get regular podiums with the Ducati, something which is a reality with the M. Yamaha. Poncharal himself conceded that he wanted Cal in the team but when asked to stay, he told them that he wouldn't be staying with them. So Poncharal went and signed another rider. It was Cal himself who closed the door behind him. If he were smart (and not "factory ideal" lured) he would remain for another year at M. Yamaha, try to keep his strong results and then take Rossi's place if he retires. If and only if Rossi remains at Yamaha should he search for a seat at Ducati, and that if Ducati shows convincing progress.
