MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Codger: Certain posters find it very difficult to find any positives with Rossi's performances. Here is some help. Rossi set a lap time on lap 2 that Marc couldn't better for 13 laps...... and Jorge never did match it. So no, Rossi is not slower now because of his advancing years. It is obvious from the lap by lap times that Rossi had cooked his tyres by lap 7, he dropped half a second a lap. So no, Rossi unable to fight for the whole race is not down to his age, or being over cautious. Jorge started from 3rd and finished 2nd. Rossi started from 6th and finished 3rd.
Now easy Codger...bringing facts on this site!! are u mad man??

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Codger: Rossi thread but what a ride from Dovi !!
I like Dovi as well, and what a ride...Ducati improving....BUT....for all those "bigging up" Dovi while talking trash about what Rossi did on the Ducati.......Dovi is finally achieving (in his 3rd year) what Rossi did in the first year on the ducati...which is finishing consistently 5-8...and a couple podiums!! and we must also consider that he is achieving with concessions particularly in qualifying!! PS I know he used MED tyres in race like other factories but he does have the fuel concessions right??? AGAIN I like Dovi...but we praise him for these results (after 3 years) but bash Rossi for similar on the Ducati....lol probably because Dovi stayed quiet about it and Rossi did talk out of turn before he jumped on!! just a note...

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Codger.. I was being sarcastic...I think the mad reference was that you are not allowed to make sense on crash.net...with silly things like facts!! lol I agree with you wholly!! My response to the post on Dovi was not to bash him but to show how people are one-eyed when they are against Rossi! Dovi praised for his results on Ducati but Rossi disrespected for the same comparable results minus the Qualifying that is usually done with the softer tyre anyway and Rossi had no OPEN concession and did these results in his first and second year...whereas Dovi is in his 2nd year and has these concessions with no podiums last year!!! Great Job Dovi...just lets be fair to what Rossi did on that pig Duc regardless of what he had said... Rossi failed his own goal but behind Casey (2007 and beyond) Rossi had the second most success on that beast!! (not close to Casey) but above all the others... I think we can all agree that Ducati's development is SLOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW!! GiGi seems to be speeding t

MotoGP » Business as usual for Marquez at Silverstone


No real story here except for the excess struggle of the other members of the four horsemen. Marquez just gets on with it...I have a feeling that he also rides around a lot of problems although Brno result..(4th ain't bad but for MM is uncharacteristic...) suggest otherwise. We saw him visibly struggle but as he said Brno sweeping characteristics may not have suited his on the edge somewhat ragged albeit impressive style... Coupled with a set up that didn't quite suit what he needed... Then again he was top in FP and the test afterwards but we still did not get a race distance feedback since he was never deemed as slow in Brno....only struggled in the race.....

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


..traction control doesn't really make the bikes faster......it makes tires last longer...so that consistent laps are better toward the end of races. In fact..nothing about traction control provides any power...in fact it reduces power to prevent wheel spin.... Added traction then results in quicker lap times but usually in later laps... Many riders have turned off their traction control during qualifying for faster lap times but struggle if they do it in a race distance... If I am not mistaken..2006 or 2007 WSBK Angel Nieto, did that to his Suzuki in Qatar as he felt the traction control was slowing him down...he finished on the podium that year on the Alstare Suzuki,,,

MotoGP » Marquez: Honda ‘good step’ for Crutchlow


cossiegaz: Cal probably told Honda he rides a bit like Marquez so will do well on the Honda. I predict more poor results and more excuses from Cal next year.
Even you do not believe the crap you wrote.... If by results you mean frequent wins etc. then you are correct his results will be poor but if he finishes next year in the top six overall and 5th or 6th on Sundays fairly frequently I believe it would be job done for him and LCR!!!! Really...if he is top satellite and battling for top satellite...it will be job done...I say that because no one can predict what Ducati will bring next year and Dovi already has 2 podiums this year....AHEAD of Honda and Yamaha factory....plus they will still have Open concessions

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


66 years and counting.....I am sure it will survive in some shape and form...whether we like it a certain way or not....this is not the first financial drought/crisis in the life of racing motorbikes.... We may not like what has or will happen while others will and we will continue to argue about it long after Rossi is gone and possibly MM.... but it is fun to read the opinions...some laughable, some insightful, some neither here nor there....

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


The argument will never stop...every one argues about the Honda being the best bike...put Lorenzo on a Honda and he would show Marquez the way around....this was the same idea for having a control tire to make the racing more equal...still no one is happy...so why do we argue about who is the best when the only comparison is them on the same bike with no distinct mechanical advantage....but if the grid is all Honda..we argue..if it is all Yamaha, we argue... If it is competitive tyres e.g. Pre-2008, we argue about special tyres...if it is control tyres we argue about tyre suiting only one make...I am a little tired of going in circles...what the hell do you all want? Control tyres were deemed as the saviour of WSBK a few years back..all the riders in GP jumped at the better bridgestones over Michelins....some couldn't because of contracts etc.... The racing got better but as independent teams struggled for money factories rose to the top...well actually they never left...which indepen
