MotoGP » Rossi 'satisfied' but wary of Pedrosa


If Rossi does win a 10th title.. I want one that is unquestioned...not that Rossi has to prove anything but we all know how fans are... so I am hoping for a dry race and Rossi to damage limitation with a third and hoping for a MM win. Not because I have no faith in Rossi's ability...far from it!! but just being realistic and Rossi has stated just as much. He does not seem to have the pace right now to challenge the front 2...neither does Dani...but the difference between Dani and VR is battle worthy. As a VR fan.. I want him to find the solution in warm up and put the whole stadium on its head with a win but that is more wishful thinking at this track than realistic prospects... Rossi has strong tracks coming up and he does not have to win the most races to take the title!! Rain could upset the leaders but it could also throw Rossi a huge curve as well and he could come out on the bad end of it... So Go Rossi, Go JL and Go MM....

MotoGP » Michelin rear ‘like a qualifying tyre’


We cannot expect Michelin to be the best right off the bat...bridgestones has had 8 years as sole tyre supplier...in which time, every lap record has been broken repeatedly and currently owned by Bridgestone!! (I am on a limb with that claim...too lazy to look it up but confident it is true) Michelin does not have this data and have not competed at this level in that time.. so to believe that they do not have a massive learning curve is ridiculous!!! However, they will come good eventually and I believe that will start from 2017....every rider (almost) will complain in the first year...because the reference post is 8 years ahead of Michelin but they will catch up quickly and all the data from 2016 will result in an excellent 2017 for them...IMO. This is their business and they know what it is to race at this level...they just need the data to develop...

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow stays at LCR


FLtrooper: Sad news! Yesterday it was Smith and now this.... But at least cal was a WSS champion! :(
I know you are trying to stir it up but if you are serious with your comment... I suggest that you are not as smart as you think you sound!!!! certainly Lucio C and Herve know a hell of a lot more about riders, riders potential and motorcycles/MotoGP than you. As a fan, I saw these signings as imminent and cannot say I disagree but like most I want to see Zarco and Lowes (maybe Rabat) step up but cannot see them doing more than these 2 current brits...at least for 2 years more...Pol is a good example...he did good in his first year...some expected more but look at this year...with the new transitions next year these were smart intelligent signings..

WSBK » ten Kate admits Guintoli will look around for 2016


samas: @dustytraks. I agree, those who don't must have forgotten Van de Marks 2 podiums at Assen races Rea won the last few years ON A HONDA.
I agree BUT Rea was also on that bike for 6/7 years. However, I agree that Rea is a talented rider who on any other "better" machine...all the others, would have won the title by now. Anyway to compare Guintoli, in his first year on the Honda, to Rea is obviously unfair to Guintoli. He is not the most winning"est" rider....but he is certainly championship material and the Honda is not flattering him right now...

SendingOutOfSpace: A qualifying tyre......
I agree but the problem for Lorenzo will be the front... the Bridgestones are understandably superior right now but JL relies on that for his superior corner speed...JL seems less adaptable and this change could upset him. When all is well, JL is the fastest but if not he struggles more than others I think... They seem to all like the Michelin rear...the issue is the front tyre..
i dont think so. he adapted to the bridgestones quit fast also. i think
Not saying he will have an issue switching to Michelins.... Just to the less superior front tyre that Michelin currently has....look at 2014 what happened when BStones changed their tyre...it took JL half season to get comfortable.

WSBK » ten Kate admits Guintoli will look around for 2016


SendingOutOfSpace: Please not Melandri!!! he can ride for sure.....but he cant handle pressure. he could have won the title on the BMW but cracked under pressure.
I like Melandri but must admit that he is a fickle character... I am not saying he should get the Yamaha seat but should he land the Yamaha ride, I think Yamaha would be happy with him in the first year as I doubt they believe they will win the title in the first year (although they might hope) but with Melandri... they could well feature many race wins at least or at least frequent top 5 and multiple podiums...so I do not see Melandri as a bad initial choice but if he cannot deliver the following year (in terms of a serious title challenge, win or lose) he should be dropped in favor of someone more capable...

MotoGP » Michelin rear ‘like a qualifying tyre’


SendingOutOfSpace: A qualifying tyre...... sounds like theres even more grip everywhere then the now so called edgegrip tyre....... that last the whole race...... wel i think jl wil say thank you....... keep it up michelin.... gonna be a good year next year
I agree but the problem for Lorenzo will be the front... the Bridgestones are understandably superior right now but JL relies on that for his superior corner speed...also Ducati seems to benefit from the BS fronts too...so a less confident front tyre could affect many...I think MM will have issues as well as he rides that front tyre likes nobody's business... but he might be able to adapt...JL seems less adaptable and this change could upset him. When all is well, JL is the fastest but if not he struggles more than others I think... They seem to all like the Michelin rear...the issue is the front tyre..

MotoGP » Michelin rear ‘like a qualifying tyre’


Crazybigjoe: More grip on rear. Does it mean will see more rear end sliding from the riders?
I would think it means less sliding since it has the grip to drive forward instead of break loose and sliding around.... this is what Pol E. is complaining about now with Bridgestones. Apparently, for Pol, the grip on the rear from Michelins allows him to drive forward more and improves his feel and lap times. However, Michelin needs to step up their front end development because if they struggle then the riders will have less confidence and mechanical grip to push into the corner entry which may bring back the more point and shoot technique used in SBKs. If this is the case, Lorenzo could be quite worried for next year... Rossi who relies more on braking may be happy with it...I think MM will struggle if Michelin does not substantially increase the mechanical grip of the front because MM rides that front like no other...while keeping the rear loose..exact opposite of M

cont'd, I think MM will struggle if Michelin does not substantially increase the mechanical grip of the front because MM rides that front like no other...while keeping the rear loose..exact opposite of Michelin's current character. On the opposite side great riders always find a way to go fast so MM is young enough and talented to adapt...but JL seems to struggle more in this department.
