WSBK » Classy Rea reels in Giugliano for decisive win


Though the total points on offer does not preclude automatically giving JR the title.....it looks grimm at this point and inevitable that we can conclude that JR is the crowned champ for 2015.... I knew he would do well but I was pulling for Sykes this year.... With that said total domination by a top rider. At the start of the year, I was not one to assume that he would gel perfectly because we have seen the opposite happen to good riders....been too long on one brand, everyone assuming a switch would bring instant success and then it does not materialize. Ben Spies and JR however are the exceptions..bigger difference for Ben though going to Yamaha and going to the world stage to tracks he had never rode before and winning the title in his rookie year. Great job by Johnny Rea!!!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Rossi test new chassis at Aragon


Insidejob: Vale is learning from Jorge by spending so much time behind him. He knows that to beat Jorge he needs to adapt his style to be more like Jorge's. The lessons seem to be paying off, as every race he is getting closer.
Vale seems to learn from everyone...that is how he gets better and adapt.. this is different from copying...he realizes that in this moment Lorenzo's technique is a major advantage...he cannot beat the bike into submission he has to find a way to be faster..so he will study the enemy, adapt his technique and attempt to beat him....master strategist if you ask me...this is different from copying settings...

WSBK » Biaggi pips Giugliano to end Friday fastest


What this shows is that he is still fast..gear ratios or not he still has to put the bike around the track in the time he posted...but he did not do this out of pure Max magic!! He has been riding and testing for Aprilia publicly and privately at this track so this is not a total surprise. One off fast laps are very possible...but his fitness will come into question in the races... we all saw Guigliano come back from injury, unfit, and took pole position but suffered in the races.... I hope for Max a great weekend but in all just hoping for a great race...if Max is top 4 in qualy and 6th in race...I think it is mission accomplished!!! and an excellent showing...anything more is icing on the cake!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


Rossi has said this 15 minute shoot out format does not suit him. His qualifying record has gotten drastically worst since it's introduction...Rossi was never a master at Qualifying but certainly he was always on the first 2 rows in his earlier Yamaha days... hearing him left out in 12th or worse during FP is just ridiculous.. with that said...the soft tyres are putting many more riders in the front...remove this and he would be on the first or second row consistently.. but again all the riders are dealing with it and Lorenzo and MM are in 3rd and 4th for qualifying so bottomline, Rossi needs to improve this...the rules cannot and should not be changed for 1 person...no matter how passionate our desire to see him win.....

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It was not enough


BReed: im so tired of rossi fans crying about this qualifying format,soft tyres this,soft tyres that. this is the 9 time champion your talking about..are you guys saying that the riders with the soft tyres are too fast for rossi in qualifying and its not fair? im sorry but you guys are only making rossi look bad. rossi's problem is not qualifying its lorenzos pace. if rossi wins he wins,if Lorenzo wins he wins.kinda sad that you guys are saying that the only way rossi has a chance is if he starts right beside Lorenzo. proves Lorenzo is just plain fast.1.5 seconds behind with 18 or so laps left shouldn't matter to a 9 time champion.
Q is the same for everyone I agree with you....but 1.5 seconds when you are running the exact same pace may as well be 1 mile ahead...he needs to qualify better period, ...no whining here, he is eating up his tyres getting to the front...that said JL is faster in the 1st half, no excuses..last 4 races JL is plain better!! but Rossi

MotoGP » Caught out Marquez left with ‘nothing to lose’


quinna: @sendingoutofspace did CS really said this about MM?. This might be the reason cs did not replaced dp during his injury
That statement is misrepresented...CS said MM profited for first title since JL and DP were both injured. He was a little lucky and he took advantage and gained some better results than if JL or DP were present or without injury...Stoner said MM totally dominated 2014 with the added help of experience. It was not a disrespect....more of an objective assessment. Stoner said he knew what was wrong with the Honda but could not say....

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


VKal Do you remember the shrinking grids?.... Ducati were on the cusp of leaving if there was no change...the old rules punished those who fell behind...and Ducati was in this position.... People are always comparing Yamaha's 12 years of not winning a title(1992 - 2004) but forget that development and testing in those days were unlimited...this was the reason, Rossi could do what he did in 2004...he and Furusawa could make all the changes and development they needed without restrictions...their only restriction was Honda would not release Rossi from his contract to test at the end of the 2003 season...Yamaha at least won races except in 2003...Ducati has not won a race in 5 years!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


VKal: Joeski Yamaha argument is not valid, different rule and time. Now, we got two rules where factory teams are handicapped from development and others can develop. Doesn't change the fact that the concession helped Ducati! Proof to me that Ducati can win without this concessions?
Missing the point... development and change was possible in the season, mistakes can be recovered from through permitted changes which allowed teams to catch up if they fell behind due to wrong direction development... etc...I agree with you n general about the concessions but the engine freeze and limited testing is stupid...but it was a cost cutting effort back in 2007 (or whenever) when it was introduced...
