MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: A special feeling


We have all been blaming VRs poor qualifying performance for his inability to close JL down....he now has a perfect starting position and his challenger is in a polar opposite world back in 8th....however, winning is never a foregone conclusion... And if he doesn't win...I am sure we will never hear the end of it...I want him to beat Lorenzo but if he races his butt off and doesn't but finishes on the podium...I understand...racing is like this, tyres, temperature, weather, mechanical..other riders etc... With that said I expect a victory...simply because he is fast, consistent and on form...and the last time he did a weekend like this..through FPs etc...Misano 2014...no one could stay with him...including a dominant Marquez!!!!

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 » Redding: We need to build on Barcelona


I am not a huge Redding fan but I believe the boy is talented...although I am not sure how high up this field that will put him. What I said last year was it will take the whole first half of the season before he got some decent results and he might show a splash in the last half...meaning on one occasion I expect him....of his own merit not due to crashes...to make a top 5 result.. However, I was one that also thought he was running his mouth a bit...by disrespecting Alvaro B, thinking that he could automatically get on a factory Honda and do what Bautista did...he is not even close yet!!!! I think he did not realize that his Open bike was not even of the same pedigree as the factory bike....and is now seeing that. With that said he also has an inexperience MotoGP crew that are not helping him enough because they are busy learning as well...Gresini would have gotten him up to speed faster...IMHO...

MotoGP » Redding: We need to build on Barcelona


HansieMGP: Sooner or later this season he and his team will sorted out I think. The team is new to MotoGP and Scott cannot adapt at the moment. The Honda has some problems, especially with the current tyres and the extra power he has with this Honda. Last year was not too bad, he was a rookie and was the best placed Honda production rider....
Spot on...but I believe he also underestimated the challenge...the fact that he race and beat MM on the odd occasion...he assumed that on similar equipment he could do what MM does and especially...he thought he could do it this year not being a rookie..he did not look past the increase in speed which he thought would solve his issues from the production Honda...only to realize factory and proddy Honda have nothing in common...but with an experienced crew like Gresini he could do much better...

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo race potential equal to mine


SCBonneville: For those that say that Rossi's not being able to top Lorenzo in these last four races is solely down to qualifying. I suggest that you go to MotoGP.com and do a simple lap time analysis for the last four races. If you do, you will find that at Jerez and Mugello, it wouldn't have made any difference were Rossi qualified, Jorge was hands down faster, lap after lap after lap, start to finish. No one but Jorge was going to win those two races. At Le Mans and Catalunya, yes, Rossi's qualifying position cost him a chance at fighting for the victory. He had nearly equal lap times early and had as fast or faster lap times than Jorge in the last half of both races. Bottom line here, unless Jorge or Rossi stumble, it's definitely a Yamaha year.
Agreed...but do not forget Qatar, America, and Argentina... Yamaha in control for sure but of the 7 races so far race pace wise...VR dominant for 3, Lorenzo for 2 and they tie for 2...JL with more wins..so that is a

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo race potential equal to mine


DJfromTJ: Yes and No, Rossi's race pace was similar to Lorenzo's in LeMans and Montmelo, but it wasn't the case in Jerez and Mugello. In reality Lorenzo was ways faster than Rossi in those two tracks and equal in the others, so there's a 50/50 change that one or the other happens. .....won't we?
Not quite....Rossi was way faster (not equal) in Qatar(helmet or not), America and Argentina .....but I agree in general that it's about 50/50 with the temperature being a defining variable. However I believe Assen favors Vale, his record is really stellar there....Good luck to both...

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!!
