MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


It wasn't the astroturf that hurt Rossi, it was the tyre sliding on the astroturf then gripping when ran on the tarmac, if the astroturf was there all the way to the gravel he probably would have just lowsided until the gravel. Its racing and has happened to lots of riders with no complaining, Iannone's back wheel hit the astroturf that made hi sit up but it was real grass that bought him down and destroyed his bike. Again if he had kept between the white lines like most of the riders did he wouldn't have crashed. You sometimes have to pay for your mistakes.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


Joeski:
Roofusruffcut: There's a simple solution to the slippery artificial grass. Stay ON the track
Do you mean like Marquez? Oh that's right he crashed on the track...or maybe Pedrosa?.. Oh sorry, my mistake because he crashed on the track too. Wait a minute...didn't MM crash ON THE TRACK last time out in Misano? What the heck is going on...riders actually crash on the track as well....I guess you can crash ON or OFF the track.... in wet or dry....go figure!!!! You are an effing genius Forest Gump!!!!
Another hilarious post, not sure what it has to do with MM and DP, but Roofusruffcut is spot on, as Rossi himself has said and the commentators on Sunday, 'there has to be a penalty for going off the track, if not they would all go wider'. The solution is simple, stay between the white lines particular in the damp, the curbs are a hazard as well, want to get rid of those?

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


Lion23, thank you for making me laugh first thing in the morning, I feel better equipped to face the day now. This is what Rossi said about astroturf in 2010: "Because everyone has different ideas, maybe take out the astroturf from some corners, some dangerous corners, but not everywhere. If not, all the riders also use the runoff area. And everybody is agreed that for bikes the best way is normal grass with gravel, like in the old times, but unfortunately we have to race a lot of times at the tracks the are used for the Formula One, for car racing, that all want artificial grass, and concrete run off area."

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


Sasquashbob The same logic applies to gravel traps, Wayne Raineys head dug down and his body carried on, did they call for gravel traps to be banned? Obviously the riders would prefer real grass but plenty have been hurt on that, watch the video of Rossi's crash beyond the astroturf was a huge wet patch on the runoff tarmac, equally as lethal to a leaning or braking bike (see Pedrosa's crash). With the astroturf you can see clearly the boundry as you can the curbs, whats the alternative? Paint? equally as lethal, a wall? certain death, tyres? I've hit them may as well hit a wall, even hitting water at that speed hurts like hell. Grass well yes but similar problem, slippy and the rider behind gets a helmet and radiator full of stones. Ideas to the safety commission, I am sure they are willing to listen, they have been discussing it a long time. BTW Suzuki have just announced their riders

MotoGP » Lorenzo victorious as rain causes chaos at Aragon


He would have been in the kitty litter though having to drop it or hit the wall head on, the run off at the point he headed for is quite short to the run off coming out of the corner obviously because that is where you would low side and the bike shoot off the corner. You could also say that about tarmac after Bradl broke his ankle on just tarmac run off, you could say that about raised curbs. Every race the safety team and the riders meet to discuss the track and any areas they feel unsafe, many riders fall fowl to the grass or astroturf, dry or wet and the riders stick with it. Rossi made a big mistake and paid the price for it yesterday, racing is dangerous, as we all know and sometimes forget, he got knocked out but otherwise unscathed.

MotoGP » Lorenzo victorious as rain causes chaos at Aragon


If you didn't have astroturf the alternative would be real grass, as much if not more of a hazard. The astroturf caused Rossi's wheels to slide from underneath him (amazing the electronics didn't stop it :-) ), but it was once they gripped on the even wet tarmac that spat him off, astroturf all the way would have allowed the bike to slide, if it wasn't there he would have struggled to stop the bike in time before the gravel and ended up in a similar fashion. Many riders crash by touching the grass or Astroturf, or even the paint when its damp as Lorenzo at Assen. You have to have something to penelize not staying on track, the words of Julian Ryder and Keith Huwen yesterday.

MotoGP » Dovizioso plays down fastest lap


He doesn't, you just don't understand what he is saying, even down to the point where him and Crash make you look silly, its blinkered vision again. Blimey the Marvel 4.5 Can only runs at 1Mbs which is far slower that the systems I use, but its not doing as much. Its your opinion and your entitled to it, you will always stay that way, because it fits your agenda, while it does it will always give me plenty to laugh about. Again he is an analyst who deciphers the data given to him by the datalogger which comes in trends, probably from I2 and with his understanding of a way a bike works then asks for changes to parameters, this again may not even be done by a software guy, just someone who has been trained on Motec M program. Its not a game of who has credibility, if you spent as much time learning about the subject as you do moaning, yours may be a little higher, yours is much lower after that article.
