MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Marquez to Marc VDS


TrueFan: but you'd have to assume that his manager knows what he's doing... of course, we all know what "assume" does.
or she! its his mum, make of that what you will. VDS seem to court these types, Zarco should have been riding last year and signed a letter of intent, but withdrew when his manager spotted someone he didn't like in the VDS garage. Well that was his excuse.

MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Marquez to Marc VDS


johnny13: Jack Millers personal manager is Aki Ajo mate. He allegedly signed with Ajo to be progressed to MVDS next season. As I said above, lets hope Ajo has a grand plan!
The deal to sign for VDS was completed with his mother and Jack himself, Ajo was his appointed his personal manager this year after he signed the deal for VDS and Ajo Motosport, which was done with VDS blessing as their Moto3 project was not fully established, using Loi as a building block. It may still bite him on the backside as Bartholemy is not happy, and staying quiet, not a good sign. I wouldn't like to think I had to take on Van Der Straten lawyers in a courtroom.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


TalentFan: @ johnny13 You don't see riders spin up, run wide and lose time out of corners any more, thus giving opportunity for a following rider (assuming otherwise well-matched bikes) to pass out of
Really?? Of course you won't, because you don't watch it any more so you can't. See plenty of it live though. Try telling Bradl and Hernandez that as they take on Club or the wonderful sight of those pair going through Woodcote. I saw virtually them all do it yesterday, especially the top 5

MotoGP » Moto2: Alex Marquez to Marc VDS


SasquatchBob: It looks like a good move for Alex and for Marc VDS. If MVDS manage to get the factory Honda in MotoGP too, they'll have the perfect career path all under one brand. Both Marquez brothers on Factory Hondas in MotoGP in 3 years? Seems more likely by the day.
Another building block? Who knows? The announcement on Gresini's future expected at his teams home round.

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


Sasha Alexandrovich: Why not build a Moto2 chassis and race there. Would be better for the brand than another failed WSBK experiment.
They do the HB4, Wilarot raced it and dumped it, it used to be raced in the CIV. Xaus had the responsibility of developing it further so probably why it failed again. Thats where the WSB came from. Where FGS allowed them to race the SB8R without making any, as they did with FP1 and Tornado, it did no good as they failed. So what is the point? Bimota traditionally fail, remember the V-Due as well?

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


ProfessorX: the racing bikes in MotoGP can be beaten by the road going bikes in WSBK with the same tires. Your argument doesn't hold any water unless you get rid of traction control and allow a larger variety of tires.
Thats why the Kawasaki engine and framed Avintia finishes first every race then is it?

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


South Wales isn't far, I traveled from Brecon to Silverstone last year and back again as I work there regularly, about 2 hours. 83k on race day last year, 130 odd total, not bad for no one interested. From my seat I can see them come out of Arena, through Brooklands, Luffield, Pits Straight and into Copse, you cannot see that distance or be that close at Donington. I don't care who wins, what bike wins or nationality, I love the sport.

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


Talentfan: There may be no real desire within Dorna or Bridgepoint to see GP's sustained - to the beancounters & suits it'll be the return on the balance sheet that determines that - not any fondness or loyalty to Motorcycle Racing.
The desire comes from the same place as any business, to make money. If it fails, it fails, but it will fail with me knowing I supported the sport that I love, not writing endless lonely anti Dorna/Motogp posts, that really make no sense.

MotoGP » No British MotoGP ride for Colin Edwards?


TalentFan: BTW - I complain because I don't like what Grand Prix has become. I only wish more people would catch on that they are being had... as only disillusionment and defection from the series, and loss of revenue will drive change. Dorna aren't about to suddenly get a conscience - if they can make money selling rubbish, they will. But... one day RSMick you'll be complaining too, when the inevitable conclusion of technology & costs makes Grand Prix fail. GP's are already a control series (just very poorly controlled). Any innovation now is just sanitising the Racing and spoiling the show. Ultimately if unaddressed this will cause GP's to decline. So (sooner or later) greater and greater limitations and restrictions of costs and technologies through greater control and regulation of the tech rules is inevitable. .
What was that about under the skin? Chill its always been like it
