MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner at Laguna my best battle


RE LAGUNA 2008 What bothered me personally was that there was never any contact throughout the whole race but Casey was still p*****d off.!!! Riding in a race or group means you must take avoiding action when multiple riders are gunning for the same race line or commit and hope the other rider gives the way up!!! I think Rossi committed (deepest desire to win) and Stoner lifted to make way...the decision and difference between winning and losing. I understand Stoner's view because from his side he may have translated this as win or crash and take me out as well.. which may have seem illogical and even dirty to him...but to me dirty is when you start plowing into riders.. I do not believe that happened in this race..whereas Casey may say it only didn't happen because he lifted and gave way!! so I see both sides but from a racing perspective its one way..he lost in a race where there was no physical contact...and fell on his own... good race and tactics by Rossi

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner at Laguna my best battle


I also prefer the Catalunya 2009 race over the Laguna race BUT Rossi will always remember this battle because unlike Catalunya where it was considered possible to win even though difficult, he was never supposed to even be close to Stoner in Laguna much less challenge him and definitely not win!!! Rossi had to dig deep and use tactics as opposed to pure race pace to win!! The fact that it paid off was just short of a miracle. What marred that race was the focus on the corkscrew pass!! that Stoner himself said was nothing or not an issue and Rossi was just lucky not to take himself or them out...basically a mistake...Casey cited other off camera passes/tactics for his displeasure with this race!!

MotoGP » Hernandez to ride Ducati GP14.2 in 2015


Happy for Hernandez...he has been a quiet dude with no real complaints and he just gets on with it. Steadily he is getting faster and faster!! and on old equipment! I am thinking he is just going to keep at it and get better!! congrats I will not be a hypocrite I did not really see the reason he got the ride in the first place. I thought he just lucked into a mid-season ride.. Never knew much about him...much akin to A. Esparago when he first came into MotoGP with Pramac...I wasn't sure where they dug him up!! I am saying this because Yonny has been impressing me and I am starting to want to see him more often on TV... I am really hoping he keeps improving and does something special on that Duke...

WSBK » Giugliano dazzles for Ducati despite technical issues


I hope and supported Tommy Sykes when Yamaha let him go and many people were half in half out on his chances...not to mention when he signed for Kawasaki...(I was a little worried about Kawasaki) I had always said that his rookie WSBK campaign was successful but using Spies as a bench mark was not quite fair as he beat the whole field and the advantages afforded at Yammy were too much to overcome for Sykes and he still did well.. PS. Spies was my favorite rider so I am not knocking him but he was also Yamaha favorite son as well and got the upper hand in support! Point is I am supporting many riders including Guigliano and really do not have one sole standout...all the top guys are good and I like them about the same.. I want Melandri to win a title but I will be ecstatic if Davies could do one as well. I want Haslam to step it back up to shut up the doubters and all the new comers are very good prospects...Roll on 2015!!!

WSBK » Giugliano dazzles for Ducati despite technical issues


Well my comment is directed at Guigliano whom I believe is just a dang fast rider...he is missing one ingredient in the formula to become the next big thing. This guy is fast almost every where he goes.. which, at least means that he knows the fastest lines around a race track. He has always crashed frequently...This is also a track that does not lend itself to being a Ducati special track but here he is again on top at a track he never raced before!! Most people write him off.. I hope he finds that missing piece to run a race distance... maybe he sucks at giving good feedback for race set up...I do not know... but whatever it is...he is undeniably fast just needs to get it together for a full race...

WSBK » Giugliano dazzles for Ducati despite technical issues


shamarone: re: "Well my comment is directed at Guigliano whom I believe is just a dang fast rider...he is missing one ingredient in the formula to become the next big thing. A frame??" sonofab@#%ch that's my line!
Now that's funny right there!! I don't care who you are!! What is not funny though is the thought that this fast dude may never get it together to be a true title contender.... then I will have to read these forums and hear the "I told you so's".... I hope he gets it together though, I love to see people become successful especially following their dreams... World Champion Guigliano!!!...its possible

MotoGP » Rossi: Mistake to leave Yamaha over No.1 status


Jorge and Vale get along now so what is the problem??? They have put the b***s**t aside and so can we. Hate it all you want, Yamaha took Vale back and he is doing well...I wait to see what next year brings... With all that said, I FULLY rate Lorenzo!! and know he will be back on full form, he has had a great last half but Rossi had a more consistently full year hence he is in second... I believe Yamaha has the best squad right now and heading into 2015. Honda probably has the best rider or the rider in his prime and on top of his game! but I believe that MM's talent is not necessarily beyond the remaining top 4, he is just on top right now...IF Yamaha can improve in comparison to the Honda next year.. the title fight will be more tight... I do not believe MM will have another run away year like this one!! Vale and Jorge will be stronger and Dani (I hope) will step it up!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


@db8 I do not think Lorenzo will able to execute this tactic this year... He is not on the same form as last year and Marquez is a hell of a lot faster...talent or Honda..choose one! It doesn't matter. Secondly, Rossi is not the fourth string rider he was last year...he is 2nd in the championship and beat Lorenzo at the last 2 rounds where Lorenzo beat him last year! Then there is DP...big question mark because his confidence has taken a knock but he may be out to prove something with nothing to lose!!!! Either way the prospect of the Valencia outcome has me intrigued because we just do not know...even Marquez is not a shoe in because we have seen him falter in the second half.... But is riding a high from sepang which may be dangerous.
