MotoGP » Valentino Rossi sets records with Assen win


Although the "GOAT" is a title a tad too high to give to any athlete in any sport, i cannot but admit that his long enduring dedication and love for the sport, his love for the fans and the show, his enthusiasm and passion for motorcycling, his passion for racing (and not just for riding or just for winning!) his perseverence and determination, his high spirit and positive ountlook and energy truly put him in the pantheon of the greatest, not only for motorcycling but for sports in general. He's up there with Pele, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Tiger Woods or Roger Federer. A shining ambassador for his sport, a man who showed that solemn determination isn't the only way to go but managed to add joy and fun to the ultra focused world of motorsports. A flamboyant personality which never forgot to whom the show was directed to and who made all of it meaningful: The fans. He has my deep respect and will always be an inspiration to me.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: 'A rider like Marquez comes along every 15 years’


@ Mr Qwerty: About those lost talents, you might be right but what would you have MotoGP do? a talent has to find a way to show that it is, indeed a talent. It's nobody's fault if it never shows up to knock the door. If the world functioned on potential alone, now we would have colonised the stars, be almost immortal and perhaps in a transcient state of being.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: 'A rider like Marquez comes along every 15 years’


HRC Boss Shuhei Nakamoto gave an interview recently... he stated that Marquez is wildly talented but not at "genius" status at which he considered Stoner to be. He stated that when Stoner opens (or should i say "opened"?) the throttle he does it in a way that gives the bike the maximum acceleration the laws of physics allow for. What a shame I'd say, this talent grown into a lad that doesn't really like to race.

MotoGP » Rossi lapped as Ducati era draws to an end


"Black or white" mentality is for kids. It's not just "the bike" nor is it solely "the rider" at fault here. This obviously was a combination which didn't work and feedbacked itself into submission: The rider wouldn't feel good on the bike and would go slower, so lose places and thus would ride with less of a motivation/spirit and so lose even more places, etc until at the deathbed's last breath just gave up completely. Spirit is everything in racing. If anyone over here has ever even half-tried to go fast on a motorcycle around a track knows for a fact that high spirits can make for a lot of time difference, nomatter what level you are at.

MotoGP » Rossi lapped as Ducati era draws to an end


I think Rossi today just cruised home making sure he's in one piece for the Yamaha test, where his mind is clearly set upon. He didn't feel like taking the slightest risk. Unprofessional of course but then again, Ducati's inability to translate feedback into progress might be regarded as equally unprofessional on their part. Ultimately, to me this race signifies his contempt for what he was riding for two years.
