BSB » BSB: Mossey narrowly misses out on Cartagena lap record


Maybe he will pull a Stoner...of course I am not comparing him to Stoner but just the situation....Stoner was ok to good in the lower classes but never won a title...although he was possibly on lesser equipment...then gets into MotoGP and is a demon and everyone is like...where did that come from?? no one really saw his speed coming on the big bike. OK in little class to World Champion in MotoGP in second year...very few saw that coming.(no need to talk about you watched his whole career and knew it...I mean in general) short story...maybe this is the same for Mossey... ok, there or there abouts in lower class but perfectly suited for the big bikes and surprises the crap out of everyone....

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


Yossarian:
JedPB67:
R1LYS1: ... but hey there is still next year!
Testing is about getting a good race set up, not about setting one fast lap in 3 days. Just because Rossi isn't P1 doesn't mean you should count him out. He's never been one for being the quickest in testing, practise or qualifying...it's always about race pace.
Not quite true, he's won the BMW M award three times.
In 16 seasons of racing GP.... not quite good if you ask me...I agree with the first statement...Rossi has never really been the dominant rider in testing and qualifying even in his most successful years his ratio of poles to wins are low compared to the current crop of active champs... and Pedrosa and Casey...

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


"Lorenzo manages to fight every race ... people will still say he's not a fighter when he was one of the best fighters in 250..." Lorenzo is capable of fighting for wins we know that from Mugello 2014, Silverstone 2013 and 2014 and 2009 Catalan GP...etc etc etc.... However, Lorenzo has admitted that with riders in front of him he finds it extremely difficult (not impossible) to get into a rhythm...which he prefers... He has struggled on a few occasions when he has found himself in the middle of the pack like 6th etc. early in the race and battling through seems to be his only real weakness. What you are talking about (battling for the lead) is different than battling up through the pack to get into the lead... On the other hand...with the margins of difference so close now, 2015 all these top riders really cannot afford to be mid pack on the start and that may be more critical this year!

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


ValeRoy: The only thing that matters is winning enough races and consistency just in case he wishes to get that 10th title. Its a hard task ahead but I think Vale and Jorge...they should try adopting "The enemy of my enemy is my friend".
They have already been doing that by working closer together....but they have to compete on track..every time Vale beat Jorge or vice versa they are taking points off each other...if we follow what you are suggesting then the only way for it to work is Yamaha decide up front who will be the winner/leader and the other rider always surrender the higher position to the "hand picked Yamaha champ"...i.e. Team orders in effect right after the first race! (first race could decide who is in the lead and then Yamaha could use that as the choice)...not sure anyone likes that idea...LET THEM RACE!!

MotoGP » 'Within a second' - Redding's target in Qatar


Mysticmeg: Stupid awkward lookin style,hanging away off the bike, and its basicly still upright,looks krapp
Yea..a little ugly but if he keeps it up on the fat part of the tyre, it also means he can drive a lot harder as he will have more grip to accelerate, he is not as light as Elias so he will not have the same issue of weight and heat into the tyres...he just has to figure out when and where to apply that technique as it will not work in all situations and at all tracks...

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Alex Marquez - Q&A


AM has not been very impressive in testing but it counts on race day and I suspect he will get faster...anyway on the opposite hand, Rins is doing quite well almost as Maverick did... Maybe he adapts faster who knows. I like the Alex M but right now I am pulling for Rins to do well... Looking for Salom to do some damage as well...Zarco has been impressive and Lowes is looking really good... not sure I have a favorite this year because Rabat is a hard worker and deserving, so I hope he defends it well! This year should be great in Moto2....here is to an exciting year!!

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat: ‘We like a challenge’


If Rabat wins this year MVDS may well push for a 2 rider motoGP team also in prep for a certain A. Marquez IF he fulfills on promise in the same vein as his elder brother.... all this pending money/sponsorship etc etc... Rabat could do well but is he a big sponsor drawer? which may be the hold back factor for him...then again he could take Smith's place next year if he wins the title again...just speculating of course...he may not want to leave MVDS moto2 unless the opportunity is as good as tech 3/LCR factory bike/ or MVDS factory ride......

BSB » Hill enjoys 'emotional' BSB return as Be Wiser Kawasaki manager


I think he has been off the bike too long to make much of an impact now if he came back as a rider... not saying he couldn't do it but because I do not believe he is a natural gifted talent he would need a lot of hard work which means more time and it would be 2 years before he could make an impact (i.e. title challenge) and that is if he gets the machinery and team willing to wait that long... so this is a good role for him, I hope he is successful!!

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat: ‘We like a challenge’


JcRacing:
Pakundo: Why is tito allowed to practice everyday on a race track with his 600cc whereas no one else is allowed to? Is that an unfair advantage?
He's not practicing at a GP track. There's nothing wrong with that.
Haven't read the rules on this but I thought he was restricted from using his race bike for outside of authorized testing.... period? Can't say I have heard much about other riders using their actual race bikes for testing at non-GP tracks... I know they use their "personally owned" sportbikes (that may or may not be close to their team race bikes...lol) for riding fitness at non-GP tracks but I am unsure about testing and lapping on their race bike...
