MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Talent fan... Good point but the ever changing variables (temp, track moisture, and atmospheric moisture/humidity) make every motorcycle of different makes, set up differently at different tracks because those variables coupled with varying riding style and rider requirements make set up extremely difficult and different week in and out. Should these variables be constant week In and out then I would agree with you. The rider never changes so that could be a static but his requirements at varying temps and grip levels change constantly..... The tyre as you say are key regardless of what make... The top riders/ team are able to master the conditions (whether due to finances or experience) ...MM struggled because on that occasion he missed it....every team does at one point or another...the best teams do it less often...simple to me...

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


Well the uncertainty that has set in now with MM not winning last time out, makes this event a more interesting prospect. Maybe this (Brno podiums ahead of MM) is what the remainder of the other top 4 needed to remind them that Marquez is not a machine.... Maybe MM just sandbagged...I doubt it...only to destroy them on this round. Any which way it goes...many of us are no longer speculating whether MM will win all the races this year.....the new question is how many more will he win?... Which only means that there is some doubt as to the final outcome.. Just as racing should be!!!!!! I get it conspiracy guys!!!! Yes!!! The top four will be the top four!!! True racing should mean all have a chance...but for what it is now...I am ok with a battle among the top four....with an uncertainty as to who will actually win as opposed to a few races ago....

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


The argument will never stop...every one argues about the Honda being the best bike...put Lorenzo on a Honda and he would show Marquez the way around....this was the same idea for having a control tire to make the racing more equal...still no one is happy...so why do we argue about who is the best when the only comparison is them on the same bike with no distinct mechanical advantage....but if the grid is all Honda..we argue..if it is all Yamaha, we argue... If it is competitive tyres e.g. Pre-2008, we argue about special tyres...if it is control tyres we argue about tyre suiting only one make...I am a little tired of going in circles...what the hell do you all want? Control tyres were deemed as the saviour of WSBK a few years back..all the riders in GP jumped at the better bridgestones over Michelins....some couldn't because of contracts etc.... The racing got better but as independent teams struggled for money factories rose to the top...well actually they never left...which indepen

I mean we could argue conspiracy of Yamaha domination in 2008 - 2010.. If Honda wrote that story then their idea of control and domination is a little twisted or the greatest reverse psychology ever known to man.....and make Honda domination even more great and convincing they gave Yamaha another title in 2012 just to show that they control!!!! They must have paid Casey a few billions to lose that one and retire for the second coming and in turn making Marquez seem like more of a savior than the Christ himself!!! Talent fan...much respect to your opinion as well as Prof X....but I just cannot see it....if anything the factories will always rule because of money and nothing else...PS...even if you give the entire grid factory bikes with the current updates as factory..they would still come out on top...why? Because they have the money for the greatest engineers I he world and ore computers etc...so they would still have the upper hand...however the show would be more fun...at least...

"I think your 'top 4' battle might just be decided by tyres." Well, if it is not the tyres then it is the bike correct? So who does not believe the Honda is a little better this year?.... So whether the tyres dictate the outcome or the bike...it seems to me that Honda has the edge regardless and the outcome would be almost no different especially with Marc at the wheel.... Both these top manufacturers..Yamaha and Honda have been on these tyres since 2008 so I just cannot find the excuse to suggest any conspiracy...PS. Yamaha has 4 world titles to its name compared to Honda who only has 2 in the same period (2008 - 2013).. So TBH you will have a difficult time convincing me of the conspiracy that Honda rules the world of motorcycle racing...

MotoGP » Top Yamaha Smith on the boil at Brno


scenic: He'll go backwards
So will everyone who is not on a factory bike....lol...what is your point? At least he earned his position without towing or assistance.. PS I have no problem with towing...this is not something new and every rider on the grid has done it!!! The difference now is that the top 4 have no one faster to do it to!!! If they try to do it to each other...as MM says...they will close the throttle....

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks finger injury


@ LLARRY and Rossi competed for 14 years before missing his first race.. injuries and all...while earning 9 world titles....as much as I respect BS38 but you are really going to come on here and compare BS38 finger injuries and what he has had to go through in how many years of international comp??...are you really that much against Rossi?
