MotoGP » Moto2 ‘valid’ despite Miller’s MotoGP jump


@ rdc Good point..... it is a snowball effect... I am sure this mentality is in MotoGP as well....i.e. Give me a Repsol Honda and I will be World Champion!!! I am sure Biaggi, Barros, Dani and Dovi can attest otherwise! and I am sure that the other top riders on Honda's...like Bradl and Bautista would laugh in their faces too if they thought it was that easy.... I do not think Bautista wishes Redding any ill-will but I will bet when Redding could not go faster than his OPEN class lap time at Valencia on the Factory Honda...Alvaro was smiling in his helmet thinking "..all that talk about how bada** you would be IF you had a factory Honda...what happened there Scottie???? and you had Ohlins suspension????" I think Scotti will be fine but it is just a sign that it is not as easy as getting the bike and here comes my World Championship Title!!!!

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Herve Poncharal (Moto2) - Q&A


cont'd ....failing miserably... so who is to say Moto2 should be a must.... I say it is the talent of the riders that will determine their success....regardless of which category they come from.... Sad about the Suter issue as well..... I like how he "hinted" at a certain Marc Marquez on the Suter, winning the title and also his reference to the GREAT POSSIBILITY that MM would have won the title in 2011 as well barring his eye injury in Sepang...I like Bradl but I believe MM would have won in 2011 as well...injury aside...PS I like Bradl...

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Herve Poncharal (Moto2) - Q&A


Good stuff... Fair take...even if Jack is successful... Jack is still Jack and not everyone could do it but certainly this may open up the rider market if Jack is successful...other teams may be willing to take a top 5 moto3 guy who seems fast and on the verge of championship status...but normal is normal... with more experience, typically a rider will perform better and this is the hope of moto2...getting these riders on larger displacement and weight machines, racing at higher speeds on what is a prototype.... and as the top rider surfaces in this intermediate class then they are more prepared for the bigger, faster, more sophisticated world of MotoGP... where only 1 or 3 riders are selected per year to make the move... PS I love moto2 and my personal take is that the riders should go through this class but even then they could go to Motogp and fail...like Toni Elias even with all his experience and we all remember him winning the inaugural title in moto2 and came back to motoGP and

MotoGP » Ducati confirms no GP15 at Sepang I


Dam...take it easy... Ducati will have a new bike for 2015...they have been behind the curve for 4 years or more if you count Stoner's declining performance over his last 3 years with them.... so what is the big deal if they miss Sepang 1 but will be at Sepang 2 with the new machine???? Chill out...they are finalizing whatever they got going on...this is not a surprise as this was also revealed toward the end of last year..... I just want to see the bike and GiGi design philosophy.... that is what I am excited about... the performance will come later, it is a new bike...no one on here can possibly expect it to win right out the box...I will be satisfied with potential!!!! PS 2007 was sheer luck and they (with Casey!!!) caught Honda and Yamaha snoozing...that will not happen again...

MotoGP » Amazing Marquez ‘rides MotoGP like dirt track’


I tried naming my favorite riders by rank and could not do it.... Rossi and MM are 1 and 2 for me but JLo is parallel too as I think he is one of the best and will be a big threat next year... I like Pedrobot as well, but he just needs to get it together and be consistent!! Dovi is good...Aleix has made the career comeback that I thought he could not do when he left in 2010!! Iannone is coming on strong and I really hope Yonny and Petrucci surprise this year... I have my fingers crossed for Redding and Cal and hope Vinales can show some flashes of brilliance!! I am up in the air about Miller but I do not want him to fail but believe his move was more PR related than all out talent!! I also wish the superbike boys well and want Nicky to put that third rate "better for 2015" Honda up there as well... So it seems I like all these riders and wish them all the best in 2015!!

PorkPie: I wonder if I would have put Jorge up there with the very best, adding to the list of Mick, Vale, Casey, Marc... it's a hard one. I think Jorge may fall into the great, but not a master category. Or maybe he'll prove me wrong in the next few years. I can't think of anybody I'd add to the group?
Hell YES!! DOUBLE WORLD CHAMP and runner up in 3 other seasons, 4th in rookie year with 3rd his worst finish since his rookie year....not to mention he is not done yet..still one of the top riders in this championship!! He could win the title next year! So yes I would say he is among the very best NOT the greatest but may still get there, he has time!

TF2: @ Joeski I'm not saying all entrants should have 'carbon copy' bikes or all one make either. ....Non-Works Hondas & Yamaha's are 2nd string by design & electronic control. Open bikes 3rd String by the same y tyre rules. Ducati's get controlled by Tyre rules. So.. just where is the real racing & competition element then?
I understood you TF just saying that your point is not the only valid one...what is the difference if a manufacturer makes 2nd and 3rd tier bikes with no chance of winning or spend a billion to hire the best rider and engineers versus a 2nd and 3rd tier who then again still have no chance of winning?...NOTHING would change! the current top 4 would still be the current top 4, so is it just the illusion of a challenge that works for you? the end result is the same

8. Only 1 engineer per team (even for multi-bike teams) 9. Only 1 crew chief per team 10. Only 2 mechanics per team 11. Only 1 team manager per team (so they could not sneek in an engineer under a different title) 12. Manufacturer can pick which ever brand or make of tyre works best for their bikes. 13. Unified weight for bike and rider Please add to this to create the perfect yet unattainable world of rules to ensure racing parity that eliminate machine advantage or finances in favor of rider ability!!

See now you would be back to a rule making scenario just as is happening now.... 1. Start limiting rider paychecks to no more than a percent of the lowest paid rider. 2. All riders must get paid not pay 3. Yamaha must provide 10-12 motorcycles of the exact same spec updated at the same times throughout the year 4. Honda must provide 10-12 bikes of the exact same spec updated at the exact same times thoughout the year 5. No new manufacturers may enter MGP unless the can complete 5 race simulations at calendar tracks and end with a time within 3 seconds of the previous years race 6. The champion will not be able to ride for the factory team in his defence year and must compete on the model/make/team that place last in its manufacturers line up 7. Manufacturers who have not won in 2 years will be removed from grid. ...and I could go on and on... but these rules would also ensure the sport fails!!! but the racing would be GREAT!!!!!!

JL also outscored all other riders in second half of season so to assume that because MM's style is so loose and impressive this is why he is faster than everyone else is an error...fact is he had the same style in 2013 and JL was faster than him (8 wins to 6) even after the collar bone was broken. He is faster because he is very (possibly the most) talented and has an innate ability to ride the bike loosely (dirt bike style) that other riders do not do (let us not forget Garry McCoy) and he is still able to turn fastest laps... not typical...when you are spinning the thing up and not moving forward because a lack of grip which means he is a monster on the brakes and setting up the exit for max drive Now.. we can also mention the small advantages of the Honda over Yamaha in the first half coupled with JLo's horrible first half year... all these things factored into a more amazing 2nd title for MM.
