MotoGP » No surgery for Marc Marquez


Yeah, Danny caught them and he had faster pace, but I think he did the sensible thing and remained behind them with the hope they would crash. How they put those passes on each other in the last 3 laps without crashing was amazing... Anyways i thought Danny's gamble was a good one. Lorenzo was clearly riding with a win or bin attitude and the last thing Danny needs is to get hurt again. He had a terrible start to the race which is very unusual for him and this was not his best track. I think in the coming weeks we will see some more amazing racing. Championship is far from over.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: 'Dream' continues for record-breaking Marquez


Joe, I thought it was the other way around based on the commentary and the pictures/video we saw during the race today. Marc's style is to hang off the bike even more than usual, to the point that his elbows are on the ground usually, but the actual lean angle of the bike is more upright than in comparison to Pedrosa. This allows him to actually get a better drive coming out of the corner apparently... at least that's what someone was commentating during the race today. I loved the slow motion video shots of Marquez and Pedrosa from the race today, it was incredible to see this guy hanging off the bike like that. Looked very smooth and composed too. Season's still young, roll on the next few races, but this will be at least a 4 man battle. Also Crutchlow might surprise some people, he had great races so far this season. Appears faster than expected, though in Quatar it seemed his top speed was down on the other factory machines and then he was catching up or passing in the t

MotoGP » Rossi and Ducati - more details emerge?


I hate speculative stories like this one... but if this offer is true as represented in the article, I can see Rossi taking it. While he declined Ducati before he has always seemed open to the option, it's Honda he will never go back to regardless of the money. Speaking of riders I wish were still competing, his old hated rival Biaggi would make a good fit on the Duc IMO. I loved watching that competition years ago, when Biaggi could put it together he was damn fast and oh how sweetly they hated each other. There's just no drama like that, Gibbernuts was too fragile to provide the same entertainment.

MotoGP » Edwards: I really needed that


Jules, you have no idea what you're talking about. Colin is one of the best development riders, he has always been. Rossi loved the guy for that reason, but for whatever reasons he doesn't put it together on race day. As someone mentioned it might have to do with the fact that he's married and with kids. Yamaha loves him though, they've already said that they want to keep him on for as long as possible and even after he retires they want him as a test rider. Having Colin available for that would've helped this season with Rossi injured for example. Anyways, I hope he gets at least one race win in his career before it's over, he's a great guy.

MotoGP » Rossi tests 'long life' engine, electronics and tyres.


While I'm sure the engines are expensive it's not the number of engines which raises costs but the R&D behind them. Fact is that putting another requirement (spec) in place will only force more R&D and expenses into an already ridiculously expensive chamnpionship. I'd really love to see a cost breakdown for the non factory teams, I bet the cost savings where Dorna can help will be immediately apparent to a retard.

MotoGP » Dovizioso misses out - again!


LOL, not sure what you guys are smoking saying he's not agressive enough. Check the championship standings, he's ahead of his teamate so he is technically the #1 repsol rider. He's doing the right thing keeping it upright and finishing the race at this stage, the wins will come in time as he gets more experience. Stoner rode a hell of a race and Dovi couldn't challenge Lorenzo or Rossi on this day. 4th is great.

MotoGP » Pedrosa escapes further injury.


Sucks for him, I really cringed when I saw him fall. It's not that the fall was actually really bad (in comparisons to the flying cat antics of Lorenzo last season) but it's the fact he was already injured and didn't get up after he came to rest. I really like this guy but he's pushing too hard on a Honda that's not built very well. Get better soon Pedrobot, we all like watching you challenge for wins even if you fail to smile at the end!
