MotoGP » Amazing Marquez ‘rides MotoGP like dirt track’


I tried naming my favorite riders by rank and could not do it.... Rossi and MM are 1 and 2 for me but JLo is parallel too as I think he is one of the best and will be a big threat next year... I like Pedrobot as well, but he just needs to get it together and be consistent!! Dovi is good...Aleix has made the career comeback that I thought he could not do when he left in 2010!! Iannone is coming on strong and I really hope Yonny and Petrucci surprise this year... I have my fingers crossed for Redding and Cal and hope Vinales can show some flashes of brilliance!! I am up in the air about Miller but I do not want him to fail but believe his move was more PR related than all out talent!! I also wish the superbike boys well and want Nicky to put that third rate "better for 2015" Honda up there as well... So it seems I like all these riders and wish them all the best in 2015!!

TF2: @ Joeski I'm not saying all entrants should have 'carbon copy' bikes or all one make either. ....Non-Works Hondas & Yamaha's are 2nd string by design & electronic control. Open bikes 3rd String by the same y tyre rules. Ducati's get controlled by Tyre rules. So.. just where is the real racing & competition element then?
I understood you TF just saying that your point is not the only valid one...what is the difference if a manufacturer makes 2nd and 3rd tier bikes with no chance of winning or spend a billion to hire the best rider and engineers versus a 2nd and 3rd tier who then again still have no chance of winning?...NOTHING would change! the current top 4 would still be the current top 4, so is it just the illusion of a challenge that works for you? the end result is the same

JL also outscored all other riders in second half of season so to assume that because MM's style is so loose and impressive this is why he is faster than everyone else is an error...fact is he had the same style in 2013 and JL was faster than him (8 wins to 6) even after the collar bone was broken. He is faster because he is very (possibly the most) talented and has an innate ability to ride the bike loosely (dirt bike style) that other riders do not do (let us not forget Garry McCoy) and he is still able to turn fastest laps... not typical...when you are spinning the thing up and not moving forward because a lack of grip which means he is a monster on the brakes and setting up the exit for max drive Now.. we can also mention the small advantages of the Honda over Yamaha in the first half coupled with JLo's horrible first half year... all these things factored into a more amazing 2nd title for MM.

Riding his GP bike like a dirt bike is figurative guys come on. The reason riders dirt track is to improve balance, fitness and throttle/bike control... you cannot actually ride a MGP bike as you would a dirt bike!!!! The bike balance of a GP/street bike is completely different...the body position is also completely different.... Why is it that dirt trackers do not all become GP champions?????!!!!! or even good enough for that matter??? Sliding the bike around is not dirt track riding!! it is merely what happens when you break either end loose under acceleration or braking... FACT: There are some aspects of dirt track riding that MAY (depending on skill level/rider) apply to CERTAIN situations on pavements....MM's riding style seems to incorporate this more than most and is very successful for him but Lorenzo does not ride this way and is still fast as hell and also a double GP champion!! Fact is MM's closest battles in 2014 was against Lorenzo..Mugello and Silverstone

Huskybod:
lyclyc: aiyo.. Rossi has none...
But he's going to win the tittle next year so I keep hearing
Well for sure his progress looks good and on an upward trajectory... he was second in the title challenge in 2014 so it is conceivable that he could win the title... I am not saying that he WILL win!! but it is certainly possible... at one time no one believed anyone but Rossi could win the title so you are just in a newer generation that believes MM is the only one..... but as with Rossi.. they all eventually get beaten... Hoever 2015 could turn out to be like 2013 for Pedrosa...all that potential at the end of 2012 fizzled...

TF2:
Brain: One more time. this series is not just about the riders........
Read it AGAIN. Is there not a serious challenge for Engineers to design, tune and set-up a bike without data & aids to suit their rider and conditions so it enables their rider to fully exploit it? Data & Rider Aids, once collected and analysed can actually make the job in Pit Lane EASIER for most of the Engineers (select correct mapping elements from the historical database and hit "Enter" to upload). Take away electronics and THEN you'll see real Rider AND Crew Talent at work.
Then the manufacturer with the most money makes the best bike without electronic aids...wait then Honda would win again!!! just as they did in the 90's and the most talented rider would still not be #1

Yamaha is trying to get it back again...this is the way of life, no conspiracy here!!!!!! Now I will say the racing is predictable because customer machines are built to a lesser spec or do not develop at the same pace over the season BUT again...nothing has changed!!! if all teams were given the same exact carbon copy bike...they would not have the talent pool or finances to pay the level, quantity and quality of engineers to unlock the bike's potential like Honda or Yamaha could and the factory bike would again be on top because they could also lure the best rider with a nice paycheck!!!! So what are we arguing here?...watch and shut up or do not watch and shut up!!! Everyone on here has valid points and reasons but none of us have the whole picture but everyone opinion matters!!! so no winners or losers in this never ending argument!!

Everyone on this forum, including myself want a perfect an ideal world BUT it will never happen.... all this control tyre, control ECU, concessions etc etc is DORNA's way of attempting to give you all the parity you seek by equalizing the machinery and allowing the riders to be competitive!! but until they go to an ROC format where every machine is the exact same i.e. a Honda championship, or a Ducati championship THEN what we seek will never happen!!!!!!!!!! One or few years (like 2004-2010 possibly 2012) Yamaha will make a superior machine via engineering breakthrough and rider combination then in the next few years Honda will make the better machine and have the best rider like 2011, 2013 and 2014!!! Then in one special year 2007 Ducati will get a surprise jump on the competiton when things change like engine size or possibly in 2016 when new tyres arrive.... THIS IS HOW IT IS so arguing will never stop!!!

You all realize that in each of those years where these manufacturers have won titles we (fans) have attributed it to the rider having the best bike (the supposed only reason they won) compared to the other "better" rider!!!!!!This is a never ending cycle....and we argue it with a passion Michelins had too much of an advantage so Michelin riders won everything in pre 2007 rules after that rules were put into place which caused Michelin to lose its advantage so here came B'stones...now it was there turn at front so top riders jumped ship and won titles now everyone wanted B'stones because Michelin could not compete and the "best riders" on Michelin could not win....so level the playing field where talent decided wins or losses HENCE one control tyre but now here comes bike design into play... Yamaha made the best bike for B'Stones so they won..then Honda up the spending and bettered them with top riders and now have the reigns.. Yamaha is trying to get it back...again...way of life, n
