WSBK » Bayliss back for Thailand, better prepared


jlav: SO THER'S NO UP AND COMING YOUNG TALENT AVAILABLE WHO COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB. LIVING IN THE PAST IS NEVER THE WAY FORWARD.
Quote taken out of context.... Bayliss is not Ducati's future but is a well earned position in their history. Bayliss does not have a contract for the next 2 years and is merely filling a spot while Guigliano is out. What he achieves while there is a personal goal for Bayliss not Ducati and for obvious reasons besides mutual respect... Bayliss has a massive fan base and is an interest story that will bring thousands if not millions of fans to the racing!!! However the more he achieves the greater the story!! Go Bayliss!!

MotoGP » Michelin: ‘Elbow’ style to stay in 2016


RaceRoad: It seems michelin thinks elbow on the ground is sinds 2013 lol. And the never hear of the 64 lean angle of JL eighter it seems.
U need to re-read the article...Michelin said elbows down was being done since Ruggia...back in 1993... not 2013...and they said MM was not the first! They also addressed the lean angle which they said was not drastically greater/different than from Max Biaggi's time...

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Scott Redding - Q&A


I want Redding to do well believe me. However, like my favorite rider, Rossi, when he went to Ducati, Scott overestimated his ability in making this Honda machinery a winning combination. No doubt he used MM, Bradl and most positively, Bautista as a yard stick. I even believe he was very much looking down on Bautista's ability and thinking Bautista was a waste of space on the factory Honda. He probably thought that in 80 seconds he would show the world how it is done IF he had that factory Honda!!! Now he has the ball and it is not quite that simple...he will be lucky to be top ten at the end of year. Maybe in 2016 he will see the podium...but with that said top 10 would be an improvement than what he did in 2014... So no complaints here...good luck...

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat: ‘We like a challenge’


Destro: i like Tito, but I think he would be a grid filler if he was in Motogp.
Well to be fair...isn't everyone besides the top 4 grid fillers????? But I guess that depends on how you define grid fillers...if you have no possible chance of winning doesn't that mean you are a grid filler??? which is the entire field behind the 2 Hondas and 2 Yamahas... So yes in that sense I agree with you as I do about everyone else that is not the top 4.... Given a top bike in MotoGP, Tito would do as well as anyone else.... hard worker who may or may not have the all natural talent but hey, didn't another rider of the same quality with maybe a little less ability win a title in 2006???????

MotoGP » Suzuki presents 2015 MotoGP racer


I said it before and I will say it again...I am happy for Suzuki's return but I am ecstatic for Aleix Esparago.... This guy came back from what I thought was racing Armageddon when he was dropped back in 2009 (maybe 2010) from Pramac... I did not see how he got his first ride in MotoGP but dang it the lad came back on the CRT and Open and done him self proud to now sit on a factory ride!!! I believe he deserves it 1000% this go around! Suzuki seem more serious than ever and signing Aleix and Maverick shows this!! these 2 racers will bring success to the team... I feel sure of it!! I will not bet who will be the first or best in the team but for now I expect Aleix to head up the charge with Maverick needing a year of experience to get routed in!! I am sure Mav will surprise a few but I expect this... I believe Aleix will give the overall year long charge for a good championship position.

MotoGP » Michelin: ‘Elbow’ style to stay in 2016


People may laugh but didn't Toni Elias used to have this extreme hang off style and frequently dragged his elbows...truthfully I thought this style would hamper MM (well just a little) as it did Toni.... i.e. not getting enough heat into the rear tyre... I have not done a close analysis of course but Toni probably hung off too much forward over the front which made the rear too light...MM seems more centered but his hang time seems extreme with his popular elbows down technique... MM is not the first to do elbows down by a long shot... I think even in 2007... I saw a shot of an AMA racer on a 600 at Laguna Seca (turn 9) burying his elbow..pretty impressive!!..point is this was when MM was about 12 years old and I am sure this was being done long before as the Jean Phillipe pic shows... I forgot about that dude...always liked him too...

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


Joking or not..it seem to me that Vale was not following/did not care (until now) about Open rules and concessions.. instead he seemed more focus on beating MM and JL etc. Now toss an "advantaged" Ducati in the mix and that makes the job at hand more difficult...great for the fans!!! but it becomes a larger hurdle or roadblock for the rider...same as any sport...no boxer wants to go 10 brutal and brain damaging rounds!! although great viewing for the fans...They would rather knock the guy out in the first! but they know this is not always possible and will fight once the gloves go on....

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


Notice that the same can be said for anyone who wins/won the title?....? The Bridgestones were an overall better tire, but the M1 was an overall superior bike to the Ducati. It still came down to who was riding the Ducati... Not true, even the documentary acknowledge that Ducati caught the Japanese snoozing and came with a faster more powerful bike. Yes it lack some refinement but Yamaha and Honda did not catch up until about last half maybe last quarter of the season. Casey made a big difference but the advantage was to the more powerful and faster Ducati. See the race in China and Qatar... Rossi could not keep up on any straight, fought as he might in the corners, he was a beaten man on every straight at almost all tracks except towards the last quarter when it seems Yamaha made some gains in speed.

MotoGP » Michelin: ‘Elbow’ style to stay in 2016


@JedPB67 Elias' problem was not primarily with the front (I am not saying he never had front problems)...it was getting heat into the rear which was attributed to his extreme hang off style... looking at it he seems to hang off way more forward than any rider I have seen to date which most likely accounted for his problems...particularly with the wider operating range (harder) Bridgestones which requires weight/force to get up to temp... I agree with you that the Michelin's suited him better because they were so specific and he definitely struggle with the harder more durable spec BStones that were designed for all to use! There were some races in 2011 where they said his rear tire, after a race, never even seemed like he used it! I would hate to think what would happen to him on the Phillip Island special high temp BStones?!!!
