MotoGP » Tyre, 'camelback' problems for Redding


I think redding will be fine and I am sure he doesn't believe that the factory bike will ride itself.... But if he is doing positions 10 - 14 in general on an Open Honda, it is not a forgone conclusion that he can achieve 4 - 8 consistently on the factory Honda with brembos and ohlins. Tech 3, LCR and Ducati will be his main worries.... In general I believe he will be battling for 6th overall and on average with occasional 4th and 5th and maybe a podium on an off weekend for the top four..... To me that would be a successful first factory year for him.... Any better and he is doing great....

MotoGP » Lack of fitness cost me in race, says Lorenzo


Dang...you guys are hard...considering none of you are motogp riders...you all seem to know so much!! It seems to me that Jorge was more affected by the heat...looking from the outside we would all ask why and he said it...it was his fitness. Fitness in nice good weather is different than fitness in searing heat...these extreme conditions exasperates the upper echelon of ones fitness level and while he seemed great in Motegi... he simply barely coped in Malaysia...enough for a podium though With that said...I would bet money that what he wanted to say was not said because he knows that people would jump on him (which they are doing anyway) and blasting him for using excuses.... If you ask me, he was on the wrong tyre!!!! but that is my excuse not JL... both guys that beat him were on the medium tyre and I believe Dani was also on the medium...Jorge chose the wrong tyre because he thought it was too hot for the medium...which funnily enough was probably decided because he was so dang h

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


@ctmfirst Relax bro! Look how fast Lorenzo was in FPs this weekend....and what did he say after Rossi beat him.....He was not fit enough...which means that at the moment, not earlier in the year!!! Rossi is the better rider/riding better and beat him fair and square on the same bike... Last year Lorenzo was the better rider and beat Rossi fair and square on similar equipment...I will not argue the whole bike did not suit him etc etc because the same can be said for Lorenzo this year with the tyres....so this can turn into an endless game of excuses.... Point is beginning of the year and now...Rossi is still able to beat Lorenzo and Lorenzo can also beat Rossi as demonstrated in Montegi.... Last year we did not see this happening for Rossi and keep in mind Rossi is now battling with an improved Marquez and an improved Honda and still doing well. Lorenzo is having a better last half but guess what Rossi is and can still beat him....am I right or not?

WSBK » Sykes on WSBK showdown: ‘We have the advantage…’


The Aprilia could do well here...that straight is effing long and the circuit in general allows the use of horsepower...not that the Kawasaki is short but this could play into the Aprilia's hands....particularly if Melandri can also get between Guintoli and Sykes. I think Melandri could very well win the races but will he? If Gintoli is close and the title is on the line....basically the Aprilias need to be first and second (Guintoli first of course) if Guintoli is to win the title... I am gunning for Sykes to win because I have not forgotten about the wilderness he came from on that Kawasaki a few years ago after 2009!! Next year I will see who I will cheer for because IF Rea goes to Kawasaki, I think that is the missing ingredient for him...Anyway looking forward to this one!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


ctmfirst:
pogo: True realist, and ctm don't forget I it hadn't been for Rossi other 3 awful years he might have several more championships, that really was a daft comment ctm I say awful, 2 on a dog of a bike and 1 trying to work out how to ride the yam that had been developed for his team mate in his absence.
Nobody's fault he went to Ducati.Ambition to win with three different bikes,nothing more.Last year wasn't awful,just normal with Lorenzo on form.
With all respect bro...you started the "IF" game so do not get upset and defend your "IFFY" position when someone else put another "IF" in there. IF you can do it then anyone can do it too...IF Rossi did not go to Ducati.... you see where I am going with this IFFY situation????

Last year was not so great with Rossi 10+ secs away from the win in almost every race. He is also beating Pedrosa too in case you forgot... by your comments, I presume he is only accomplishing this with luck....WOW...luck for a whole year and at almost every race!???...I disagree with you! but yes, it was his choice to go to Ducati....but "what if..?" as in your original post...

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


TrueFan: Great ride by Rossi. He looked really comfortable for most of the race, and even though Marquez had something extra, it wasn't much. I didn't expect Rossi to make the podium, so whatever he found in the morning warmup, it made a huge difference. Great ride. There's still a slim chance Lorenzo could take second with a win in Valencia, but only if Rossi finshes 4th or worse. My money is on Rossi from here.
Really hate to agree with you on this...Lorenzo, DP and MM are exceptionally strong at Valencia...Rossi has not been throughout his career. Call it a Bogey track or whatever but this is the case. I can see these 3 finishing ahead of him there but in what order? is the question...HOWEVER, with Rossi's form this year that theory is also questionable!! and I cannot wait for the verdict!! on track

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


I was worried after the free practices and then qualifying that Valentino would struggle to even hold on to fourth today... but I always silently held faith in his race day prowess!! but with the competition at the top so tight where starting 5th or 3rd can hugely affect the race result because they are all on the edge from the moment the light goes out..... To be honest as a Vale fan, I have to say that there must have been some gamble on the set up that paid off and with Jorge on the hard tyres, Vale came off the best of the rest today... but strategy is part of racing and we can all agree that luck is as well... So as a Rossi fan...I will take that and continue to cheer for my favorite rider.... I am disappointed with what happened to Pedrosa because I really wanted to see the outcome with DP on form!! Anyway...Good race to all Go Vale, Go MM, Go Jorge and looking for Pedrosa to make a mark at Valencia.....(not on the pavement though)
