BSB » Kiyonari accepts blame for disastrous BSB season opener


Did 1:30s in practice consistently and could barely make 1:33s in race...definitely had issues...very disappointing weekend for Kiyo...I am sure he feels it worst than me... it was not the bike's fault but the bike was not set up for the hotter temps hence the reduced feeling... Anyway...hopefully he got his crash of the season out of the way and step it up next round...still pulling for him to do dwell....

MotoGP » Smith eyes top satellite kudos in Texas


Everyone on here wants everyone in the field to be on the podium and if they do not do it then they are garbage...even though we all know that these workmen are not given the same tools i.e. machinery, the whole reason for concessions in the first place!!! The top 6 are the favorite because they are given the 50 pound sledge to break the boulder, the rest have the 8 ounce hammer trying to chip away at it, but when Cal or Smith say we will finish 7th they are busted, prodded and poked for not having the ambition to finish first or on the podium. The sad part is MSMA members and DORNA all openly admit this with the concessions, all known facts but yet the fans on here expect Smith, for example to "fight for the podium?" really....well let's slate him for finishing as top satellite rider...realistically that is 7th position with Ducati's now competitive with concessions..... ignorance never ceases to amaze!!

MotoGP » Smith eyes top satellite kudos in Texas


TrueFan:
Insidejob: He, like Cal, has the bike to podium with. It's time he upped his aspirations.
He's reverted to PR speak.... with good reason. Can you imagine how well it would be received on here if he said "I'm going to go for the podium this weekend..." If he says it, he'd be accused of not having anything to back it up (fair enough, except for the level of vitriol he'd get). If he said it and did it, they'd cry foul conspiracy because better riders had "problems"...like at PI. If he said it and didn't make the podium they'd only be happy with his immediate execution. No doubt he has the aspirations...he's just been coached not to voice them to the idiot public. Good luck to Cal and Bradders.
Nailed it bro!!!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Maybe we have a chance to fight


The more people bash Lorenzo, the more I am starting to feel like pulling for him.... I am a Rossi fan but I have mad respect for JL... It was hard to argue for Dani P because he has had that Honda ride for 9 years without a title to show but Lorenzo is obviously not in the same boat... And IMO he was the fastest and should have been the champ in 2013... Although I am also a MM fan (waiting for Rossi to retire before I fully get on the wagon) I have to say he was fortunate that JL was injured in 2013 which gave opportunity to "make hay while the sun shines" and he did it and took the title...JL is no slouch and I would be careful how much money you put against him... You could lose it all....Go Vale!! Go Lorenzo

MotoGP » Dovizioso 'can't wait' to put GP15 to test again


Just a heads up if you have not checked yet but...High temp in Austin this weekend will be 80 degrees F. on Sunday Friday - 80% chance of rain (thunderstorms) Saturday - 90% chance of rain (thunderstorms) Sunday - 80% chance of rain (Thunderstorms in late evening) Long story short...hard tyre will not play a factor this weekend..and if the rains come late on Sunday they may well be using the soft or medium compound. If not on rain/intermediate tyres period.... PS Dovi podiumed with medium tyres last year on the pos GP14. He has a better bike with concessions..I would say, weather or not...he could probably win this one..saw what I did with the word weather right there...lol

MotoGP » Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas


LordBongington: Can't see him winning this one, but happy to be proved wrong. Marquez, Iannone, Dovi.
VRs history here does not support a possible win...he was 2nd 2 years in a row at Qatar so few doubted he could do it.... He is faster in general, it seems and the gap is not as wide to the Hondas...but Ducati is better and Dovi podiumed last year...Lorenzo is not a slouch here either...and Crazy Joe has proven what he can do on a good bike in the first showing... I guess I agree with you but I have also learnt never to write Rossi off.. Dangerous thing that underestimation of the age old Vale...

WSBK » Leader Rea refusing to 'get carried away'


Happy for Rea..he is checking all the blocks as we already knew he had the talent but nothing is a foregone conclusion until it is physically done. May people have already crowned him..I am not saying he can't but give him a chance to actually do it...because if Tom or Haslam find that missing ingredient...it could all change... last year...I swore Tom had it in the bag but we saw Guintoli step it up and Tom trailed off....costing him the title. Rea and Tom get along...what is with this fan created crazy hate rivalry....reading this forum you would swear they are bitter rivals...lol.

MotoGP » Dovizioso 'can't wait' to put GP15 to test again


The Ducati's were faster on Top speed than Marquez. However, I am not sure where on the track the put the trap speed equipment and quite possible MM was the fastest at that particular point. MotoGP.com stated that MM hit 350.3 Kph..i believe...but on Dovi's bike while battling with Rossi, I saw 354 kph...someone on here said they saw 355 kph so I do not know...it is possible the trap speed is the only calibrated equipment while the onboard stuff is just tied to the bikes speedometer which is not required to be calibrated (well not sure if that is true for MotoGP but in general that is the case)... For all we know the trap speed may be at or just after the finish line as opposed to at the end of the straight...

MotoGP » Marquez: I want to put Qatar behind us


Guna4699: Marc doesn't care about batting to the line if he needs to, so he will never be worried about number of bikes fighting for win unless he makes his own mistake like in Qatar which he will try not to repeat. Another thing is I don't think Ducati will podium here, they'll have pace but sadly won't have the hardest option tyre which other two factories will have. Because this track is very demanding on tyres and hard will be the option most probably for Yamaha and Honda... Mostly likely a Honda win with Yamaha double podium...
Not so sure about that. Ducati podiumed on the medium tyre last year. Although I believed Vale would have been on podium last year but ran into tyre issues. Also GP15 is newer and better bike on the tyres and more adjustable plus it seems this weekend in COTA will see lower temperatures with possible threat of rain.....high of 80F for Sunday! with some thunderstorms.
