MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


Brain:
Peter Light: One of the things that I love about bike racing is that it does not discriminate (gender, race, religion etc) and that everyone gets the same treatment if they want to have a go. Are we in danger of this changing?
Here is the deal, Baz is nothing special and the team decided that there are numerous riders who are at his talent level that will not require them to spend a bunch of money converting the bike to fit. If he had separated himself from other riders on track and shown he was a special talent, they would have taken him, but he hasnt. Business 101.
What bunch of money to convert the bike are you talking about???? They do nothing but set up the bike to suit his style and weight distribution...but they have to do that for every single rider....Hell, with Camier already riding for them the probably have 80% of that resolved already regarding what a taller rider would want???the other 20% is rider preference

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


......But you all might be right if he (Baz) had 4 or 5 wins to his name this year his situation might be different....on the best bike his best result is pole position....once??? Hell, don't get me wrong I like Baz but his results haven't made him a great standout....neither does Eugene but Eugene has more history and everyone knows about that Suzuki. On the best bike Laverty produced....on the best bike Baz has not....working on his third year...years ago it was normal for a rookie to spend 3 or more years getting up to the level of top guys...unfortunately the sport has moved on with more riders...showing the talent early...Spies, Marquez..both rookie world champs...then Rossi and a few others who won world championships in second year...Lorenzo was a title contender in second year...so it becomes clear that champions will be champion challengers early...so now riders are given less time to show and prove... Baz is a really good rider, my guess...he hasn't proved that without a dou

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


RSMick: Not forgotten at all Joeski, ..... Can you remember his terrible first year on the Tech3 Yamaha in 03?.....yet always had top kit, so how do you expect him to come good in GP?
You are talking about the Yamaha that did not podium at all in 2003? With Checa and Biaggi.... I argue that he was on an inferior bike but a respectable team.... His worst year was 2010!... Bear in mind at that time the Honda had not won a title in 4 years either and they were a little lost trying figure out how to beat Yamaha.. But for whatever reason his return to Gresini did not bear fruit after a surprising year and above expectation performance on the Hayate!!! I am not sure the Ducati got into his head too much because his performance on the satellite Hayate the following year was beyond everyone's expectation.

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Revilo52: Scott should be able to do well next year all being well. Podiums will be expected from Honda, the team and himself.
A...as in 1... podium maybe...if Scott finishes as best Satellite rider next year that would be an achievement even without a podium BUT bear in mind, with Ducati improving and with OPEN concessions, Top satellite rider could be 7th position NOT 5th anymore!!! So the question is....is 7th in the world championship, Top satellite for 2015 good enough???? IF you are on a Factory Spec Honda???? I mean, Pedrosa is having a hard time holding off Dovi, should we expect Scott to hold him off next year when Dovi will be on a better bike? and not to mention Iannone as well??? just trying to be realistic and not overestimate Scott's prospects and expectations.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We were too far away


Personally, I believe Cal is working hard but is just not adapting at all.... It may be difficult to differentiate reasoning from whining, particularly when the results are not there because whatever you say...everyone else will just see an excuse.... To me he was not whining in this article...he was praising his teammate while admitting he is "lost in the sauce" on what to do with this bike or himself to make it faster!!! If he tells us his reasoning...which is what he tells his engineers...us fans only see it as whining or another excuse but I bet he is telling his team the same information and they are trying like hell to resolve the issue for him but struggling....

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


RSMick:
Why do people believe Melandri could run up front? He couldn't on the Honda in 2010.
Well...he was a championship contender twice in this category...his decision to go to Kawasaki and spouting off against Honda lost him his ride...not his ability because we also saw what he did on the second rate Hayate Kawasaki team after Kawa pulled out of GP.... funny how people only remember 1 year!!! but the 6 before that are conveniently forgotten!!

MotoGP » Pedrosa admits 'it wasn't my best performance'


Dani is a race winner and although he is not Marquez he is 1 of 3 winners this year and second in the world championship correct?????? You will all find that except for MM no one else is really winning per say..I mean DP won 1 and now Rossi.... but MM has stifled the competition this year! period!! MM aside, Dani, would be leading the championship and would have as many wins and podiums as the next nearest competitor!! He is second in the Championship!! so I guess he is second fiddle but good enough for another 2 years according to Honda!!

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


MagicNumber:
Did you hear today that Leon Camier has been turned down for a ride in 2015 at Aspar simply because he is too tall? It's true. Seems teams want midgets, even though the guy that won today is almost 6 feet tall. What a load of crap!
Pretty sure that article I read today was about Loris Baz been turned down because of his height....I didn't hear anything about Camier but I suppose it would be the same because they are about the same height...
