MotoGP » MotoGP 2015 v 2014: First half comparison


NicPain: I remember JLo worrying about his performance last year around this time and his contract with Yamaha. Good to see him back on the top. 2nd half of the season will be much more interesting and competitive with MM and Dani getting back to rhythm. Good season after a boring one last year. Go Yamaha, Go Vale, Go JLo!!! 2
JLo had zero worries about his Yamaha contract... that was just the fans creating nonsense buzz... Yamaha issued no threats to Jorge nor did they express interest in any other rider... including their already signed 'rookie of the year" Pol... Go Rossi!!! Fingers crossed for a 10th title!!!

WSBK » Rea: I am sure I was quicker than Sykes…


Calm down...This is normal. I am a Sykes fan and he beat Rea in both races...so the natural inclination is to be defensive when Rea says he was faster. I do not see the problem...IF Rea was .1 sec faster or less that would not be enough for him to pass especially on this track. That .1 sec faster per lap has to also be consistent for him to pull away and I do not believe it was...the slinky effect would be in play...at certain spots on the track. But Sykes immediate responses to Rea's passes suggest that he did not want to take the chance or maybe he realized that Rea had a bit more pace to pull a tenth here and there....certainly no one is suggesting Rea would be 5 seconds ahead even if he passed Sykes.... but a second at the end may have been possible hence the staunch defense...Good tactics today by Sykes.

WSBK » Untouchable Davies doubles up Stateside


Remembering where this dude came from back when he first came to the U.S. He did pretty good here but not outstanding although he did win a Daytona 200. Still, I believed he had talent but to see him now and actually, witnessing his WSS championship back in 2011...This dude has journeyed far and although he may never see a MotoGP championship...I would love to see him win the WSBK title before he leaves racing!! and if he does (sooner than later) maybe graduate to MotoGP and give it a go with a good ride. Good job Chaz...hoping for more success for you. Good job to Sykes and Rea as well!! Roll on next round!!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Rossi was rightful winner at Assen


mrfill: "It is a track where maybe our bike lacks a bit, as we cannot take advantage of our good cornering in faster turns. " One of 'our bikes' won the race. That one didn't lack very much or, if it did, then the Honda lacked a little bit more.
lol...JL is talking about Sachenring...not Assen....but I can see the possible confusion when you dislike Lorenzo... Oh BTW...this from a Rossi fan...

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race


So, I am ok with the attempted pass...Rossi expected the attempt from MM, and already had a strategy in hand...that was not to crash and be first. To accomplish this, he would have to hold the line but if the contact was aggressive enough....which it was, I watched MM lose the front completely, sliding the front and rear..he was out of control...when MM got it back under control he was out on the far left curb....so Rossi quickly calculated his only option...through the gravel...he popped the front wheel up to prevent it from burying in the gravel and this is how he kept it upright... YES, Rossi knew since he was ahead at the time of the incident...if he cut (which was his only option) he would win the race...since he never gained a position...only held the one he had....MM attempt to pass can only be viewed as him hitting Rossi since Rossi was ahead...it doesn't matter whether Rossi closed the line or not...he was ahead when the incident happened...good attempt by MM..but Rossi won...

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


People are arguing about dirty tactics from Marc but I just believe it was an ill calculated pass bourne out of passion to win. The real issue is that he could have taken them both out or worse...seriously injured Vale. If MM tried that pass without Vale there he would have ended on his ****..he had both the front and rear sliding. If Vale had resisted and pushed to make the turn both would have gone down..Vale reacted correctly and saved both MM and himself.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


SkyWilk: If Rossi didnt even brake, and went straight through the turn, he would always be ahead, and still win the race Mr. Webb, what kind of an argument is that?... Rossi gained an advantage by not even atempting to make the turn at some point, thats that.
Nice simplification but you neglected the whole "when he got hit" part, with his knee down....he was ahead...

Rossi's knee was down in the right hander when he got hit....how do you suppose he did not attempt to make the turn? They both went wide.. meaning MM was too hot into the turn..he was all the way out to the curb...so where possibly could Rossi go if he was half bike ahead on the outside?.. He was pushed...difference is instead of forcing the impossible turn like Edwards tried in 2006... and crashed...Rossi calculated that he had to run through the gravel...tactically smart if you asked me...

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race


PS. Rossi would have done the same if he was behind MM....he said so about his pass on Lorenzo in Catalunya 2009... "That he don't know if he crash but maybe they both crash together...it is the last corner so we must try" ...lol not sure if this was verbatim but dang close....so I cannot be a hypocrite with MM about his attempt...however I am surprise he thought it was Rossi's fault for holding the line or closing..any rider would have done it..I am sure he could not expect Rossi to just crash or park it in the gravel...if Rossi had held the corner both him and MM would have crashed....so, while I like MM, he owes his second place to Rossi...by first been beaten solidly and second for getting off the line when MM was out of control which gave him the room he need to stand it back up and finish second.... Please MM and Rossi and. Lorenzo keep up the tight racing ..loving it
