WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation

I wished Melandri had both wins on the record book because he earned it...however I also see the team perspective.... BUT all this after huge claims from Aprilia that they would never impose team orders except to not take each other out... Melandri gave Guintoli race 1... And they still wanted him to give up race 2 as well?.... I have an issue with this because Guintoli needs to earn his title.... I have much respect for Guintoli but could never find honor or respect in a "gifted". Title.... Please note that I have much respect for Nicky Hayden's title because he was not given it...regardless of how low his win ratio was. He was much like Guintoli....consistent all year...only a couple wins but EARNED his title even after his teammate knocked him off.........

WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation

Personally I think Guintoli should be happy Melandri gave him race 1. These guys are here to win not play second fiddle...and after a bad first half year...Melandri needs to pony up with wins...which he seems to be doing pretty well....I would have to say he is up for the title next year...if Aprilia holds on to him... This dude needs a consistent team...he has not really have that, since his entry into world super bikes.... BMW was his first chance but we all know now their level of support was less than true factory....

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty talks Aspar Honda MotoGP move

It will be interesting to see where Miller and Laverty end up next year..and even race by's hard to predict because we have seen much hype sink and become nothing but we have also seen much hype shine through...I am sure even MM die-hard fans ever believed he would pick up the world title last year.... Many said he was hype... But I believe otherwise... Jack could be the same.... MM did say moto2 doesn't really give you an idea of what to expect in MGP because the bike is totally different with the electronics and set up and tyres and carbon brakes etc.... But the experience of racing, and growing as a racer is the biggest gain... So Jack might come in a do some stupid stuff initially...because he has not improved his race craft .... But he might be ridiculously fast though....

MotoGP » Suzuki signs Espargaro, Vinales for MotoGP I'm gonna come out and say I don't rate AEspargaro at all, good luck to him. but he has never shown anything remotely noteworthy, and I will never understand why he got a 2nd chance at motogp... that decision to go down shows a lot about the mental fortitude a rider has (meaning he couldn't hack it the first time around....)
I agree to an extent... How Aleix got his first run in motogp is beyond me. Since he has come back on that CRT and now on the Forward Yamaha, for sure I can now say he has earned it. What he has shown is that on a top machine he can achieve good results even if he may not be an alien... But how do we know he is not an alien...he is certainly not on the best machine in the field to prove otherwise....

MotoGP » Aspar makes Eugene Laverty deal official

People will always argue against the superbike road to MotoGP... A good rider will be good... the rider that can adapt will be better. Spies was a dam good rookie and won a race in his second year...barely got beat by Stoner at Valencia... but it seems now his mentality was not so strong for this paddock but he made it to a factory bike which shows he had potential! Bayliss sucked on the Ducati but came into the last race of the year after winning the WSBK title and won on a Ducati!! We all talk trash now about Cal but his last 2 years at Tech 3 were pretty dang good... anyway...Eugene will be fine and I honestly do not know what to expect yet...this is a different animal to SBKs and he will need to learn...he knows most of the tracks from his 250 days and some on SBK.. I think he will do ok in first year!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

Roofusruffcut: There's a simple solution to the slippery artificial grass. Stay ON the track
Do you mean like Marquez? Oh that's right he crashed on the track...or maybe Pedrosa?.. Oh sorry, my mistake because he crashed on the track too. Wait a minute...didn't MM crash ON THE TRACK last time out in Misano? What the heck is going on...riders actually crash on the track as well....I guess you can crash ON or OFF the track.... in wet or dry....go figure!!!! You are an effing genius Forest Gump!!!!

MotoGP » Pedrosa: We have to take the positives

He stayed out on slicks because Marquez stayed out on is natural to follow the person you are in competition with...same with tyre choice etc. We have seen gambles in the past that went south...Like Rossi in Assen etc. Lorenzo admitted to taking a chance and it paid off...little luck involved because if the rain eased up or stopped then he could have paid the price for switching over to the wet bike I know it was only a few laps left and a dry line may not have formed even if they had switched they probably would have been good but it is difficult to make that on so close to the end.....with not enough time to possibly get the wets up to temp..

MotoGP » Delighted Espargaro qualifies as top Yamaha

Good stuff from Pol...most likely the Factory M1 have changed so much from last year while the tech 3 is more stationary and a known quantity...although Yamaha tested here earlier..the conditions and the tires would make a massive difference...its like Brno for MM... tested there but struggled on set up!! Anyway good to see different faces upfront even if my favorite riders are behind the curb, a little bit... Surely tomorrow is a Honda day all day....the podium fight will be interesting for third place!!!
