MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Talent fan... Good point but the ever changing variables (temp, track moisture, and atmospheric moisture/humidity) make every motorcycle of different makes, set up differently at different tracks because those variables coupled with varying riding style and rider requirements make set up extremely difficult and different week in and out. Should these variables be constant week In and out then I would agree with you. The rider never changes so that could be a static but his requirements at varying temps and grip levels change constantly..... The tyre as you say are key regardless of what make... The top riders/ team are able to master the conditions (whether due to finances or experience) ...MM struggled because on that occasion he missed it....every team does at one point or another...the best teams do it less often...simple to me...

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Well the uncertainty that has set in now with MM not winning last time out, makes this event a more interesting prospect. Maybe this (Brno podiums ahead of MM) is what the remainder of the other top 4 needed to remind them that Marquez is not a machine.... Maybe MM just sandbagged...I doubt it...only to destroy them on this round. Any which way it goes...many of us are no longer speculating whether MM will win all the races this year.....the new question is how many more will he win?... Which only means that there is some doubt as to the final outcome.. Just as racing should be!!!!!! I get it conspiracy guys!!!! Yes!!! The top four will be the top four!!! True racing should mean all have a chance...but for what it is now...I am ok with a battle among the top four....with an uncertainty as to who will actually win as opposed to a few races ago....

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


"I think your 'top 4' battle might just be decided by tyres." Well, if it is not the tyres then it is the bike correct? So who does not believe the Honda is a little better this year?.... So whether the tyres dictate the outcome or the bike...it seems to me that Honda has the edge regardless and the outcome would be almost no different especially with Marc at the wheel.... Both these top manufacturers..Yamaha and Honda have been on these tyres since 2008 so I just cannot find the excuse to suggest any conspiracy...PS. Yamaha has 4 world titles to its name compared to Honda who only has 2 in the same period (2008 - 2013).. So TBH you will have a difficult time convincing me of the conspiracy that Honda rules the world of motorcycle racing...

MotoGP » Top Yamaha Smith on the boil at Brno


He has speed! Like most I still do not believe he should have had the ride in the first place as his resume did not justify it......but end of last year and parts of this year I could see he has the speed. I was not at all upset that he got a new contract as I believe he will have a good third year. Cal did the same thing...in his third year is where he shone...but his second year showed flashes of speed....just like Smith...I believe he will have his hands full with Pol next year.. somehow, someway he needs to develop consistency for the race....lets see...good luck!! good performance in quay!!

MotoGP » Top Yamaha Smith on the boil at Brno


scenic: He'll go backwards
So will everyone who is not on a factory bike....lol...what is your point? At least he earned his position without towing or assistance.. PS I have no problem with towing...this is not something new and every rider on the grid has done it!!! The difference now is that the top 4 have no one faster to do it to!!! If they try to do it to each other...as MM says...they will close the throttle....

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks finger injury


@ LLARRY and Rossi competed for 14 years before missing his first race.. injuries and all...while earning 9 world titles....as much as I respect BS38 but you are really going to come on here and compare BS38 finger injuries and what he has had to go through in how many years of international comp??...are you really that much against Rossi?

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


Also with that said Rossi just did not get along as well with the Yamaha last year!! so it certainly seemed that the difference was only Lorenzo. The truth is the Yamaha was a decent machine last year and very comparable to the Honda. Lorenzo was the only one capable of exploiting the best and win on it... we saw that Cal Crutchlow was able to do excellent on it as well.. the same Crutchlow that said he mimicked Lorenzo's riding style to be able to extract the best out of the package!! Rossi did not do this and struggled last year! so with one Yamaha at the front many kept saying its all up to Lorenzo (which it was) on an inferior machine!! This IMO was not a true statement. It was all up to Lorenzo because no one else could ride the Yamaha with the same precision! The Yamaha and Honda are not worlds apart in performance but in a world where thousandths of a second makes a difference Honda has more millions to find that little difference that helps MM do what he does!! where nobody els
