MotoGP » British MotoGP, Silverstone - Race Results


A couple of points here. Dani will never win a championship and the reason was clear as to why today. Had the pace but not the balls to make a move on his team mate. Note to Dani WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Second several people have commented on the way Yamaha and Jorge celebrated after beating Marquez. NOTE TO NON RACERS if you were getting beaten by a rookie who seemed unstoppable, overtook you late in just about every race to win AND you had a broken collarbone which prevented you from riding at 100 % for much of the season youd be celebrating too.

MotoGP » Double shoulder surgery for Ben Spies


I think there comes a time in every athletes life where they must take that hard step to decide to either continue being mediocre as they age or try to come back from injury or quit. It can be a hard decision if youre used to winning, just ask federrer, schumacher, owen,the list goes on. In a sport like Motorbike racing at this level I think the choice can be easily made when one has suffered such calamity and misfortune. He has enjoyed a successful career in AMA and in WSBK and I think he can and should walk away now while he would be remembered in a positive light as opposed to hanging around hoping to be top ten on a non competitive bike.

like Rossi would ride comfortably around in third place just watching and observing where the others are weak as well as where they are strong and waiting for his tires to come good and for the others to fall into a predictable rhythm where he attacks. This tactic can be beaten by just reversing it on the said rider. The others better learn , and quick, to stop letting this young gun learn their moves until they can combat his checkmate move.

Congrats to Marquez. The young gun has great talent. A young improved version of rossi i'd say but wait, not so fast. His race craft, and that is what it is and quite evident to anyone whos ever raced or ridden top level on the track, does have the ability to be beaten if the other "aliens" didnt get pushed into a punchers tactics from being a boxer. Let me explain. Lorenzo goes about trying to decimate the field by setting a blistering pace which normally others cant match early on and by the end the gap is to far to contend with and all he has to do is mange the gap. Rossi , not the best qualifier but obviously more suited to better results in the race, is able to adjust his tactis to suit the situation . Since the Yamahas and Hondas are so evenly matched most of the time trying to get away wont happen for either during the race. All Marquez is doing is "crafting" his race based on the tactics of the front runners evidenced by today as well as three weeks ago in laguna where he, li

MotoGP » HAVE YOUR SAY: Name your US MotoGP star!


The Rise of Marquez storyline? Hahahaha, that's funny...i mean Marquez has done nought all to generate this much interest...all down Carmelo it is.... @Cubikrube, what Shamarone may be saying is that it was strange how Carmelo helped to do away with the rookie rule just as Marquez hit the scene. No doubt he has talent but in the "normal" world one doesnt necessarily start their career as one of the board of directors and then work their way down. If they do , please tell me where they're hiring. Other than that it has to go to bradl or espargaro. Both of whom have been riding really well for their respective teams.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'Bautista becomes a little bit crazy'


Yet again we see bautista's reckless riding cause him a trim to the gravel trap. If this doesn't get race direction to do something then nothing will. One more thing. Those of you who are comparing him to Simoncelli, please stop. One of these riders had a bright future ahead of himself in Moto GP and was listening and learning from his mistakes and others criticism of his riding . The other continues to basically flaunt his aggro style in the face of officials daring them to do something and has learned nothing.
