MotoGP » Pedrosa poised to become second highest scorer


akaDan10, don't forget Aaron Slight. 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 4th, riding a Honda during the years SBK was dominated by Ducati. In 1998 he was second to Carl Fogarty by 5.5 points (half points having been awarded in the shortened Laguna Seca race 1), only missing the title due to mishaps such as a last-lap engine failure at Monza, a last-lap incident with back-marker Jean-Marc Deletang at Philip Island, and missing race 2 at Laguna Seca due to a startline pileup on the aborted attempt to restart the first race.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez explains Phillip Island black flag


At first I thought that #93 coming in at the end of lap 11 was legal because he wouldn't be crossing the start/finish line till he was on his new bike - so technically he had only completed 10 laps.

They probably intended to say "normal circumstances" to account for crashes, mechanical problems, etc at other points in the race but by saying it, the rest of the sentence becomes a guide and not a rule, if you wanted to be pedantic.

MotoGP » Schwantz 'sets the record straight' on COTA claim


Schwantz is a legend, no question about that. However for him to claim that he is solely responsible for bringing the MotoGP to Austin overlooks all those people who invested in it financially (risking losing all their money, putting their money where their mouth is, etc.). If you ignore or insult these people they could be less likely to invest, or even worse, they could drop out altogether because some of them might have invested as a way to increase their visibility to the public. Also lot of people invest because they believe in a cause, not just to make money. And also a lot of people other than Schwantz must have worked very hard to bring MotoGP to Austin. Schwantz is a fantastic ambassador for the sport and no doubt successfully played a very important and probably critical part, but he couldn't have done it all alone and he really shouldn't have claimed that he did. But, having said all that, even though he might have made an exaggerated claim that response from COTA is WAY bey
