MotoGP » Edwards goes 'old school' with no TC


Interesting interview with Honda's Shoichiro Iramajiri in the latest Cycle World in which he says that with the current MotoGP bikes it's 60% to 70% machine and 30% rider. A few more years of technology development and I figure this senior citizen should be able to go head to head with Marquez :) I'm still saddened though by the amount of techno intervention these days and would like to see some of it backed off so the rider is a bigger part of the equation.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi tests NASCAR


@ Me Perhaps you didn't notice this line " It's cool Monster Energy brought us together, it was a lot of fun." and perhaps you haven't notice that Monster Energy sponsors Yamaha in MotoGP. Obviously Yamaha would have no problem with this and I'm pretty sure that after 9 world championships, Rossi knows how to focus on the job at hand.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi tests NASCAR


Oops! Some people need to step back and just enjoy the amazing talent of so many of the riders and drivers in today's motosport. BTW, yes I have raced at low level events and know a little, and I mean that literally, about car control. I have not competed on my bike but know that my limits are truly sad compared to the current crop of bike racers. Stop arguing and try discussing, it's much more satisfying.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi tests NASCAR


I'm always amused at the way many people on Crash write off NASCAR. I'm old enough that the first race I ever attended was to watch Mike Hailwood at Aberdare Park in1958 so maybe I've picked up a thing or two over the years. I watch a wide variety of motorsports including NASCAR, WSBK, MotoGP and moto-cross and those of you who think NASCAR is easy need to get yourselves to a race and find out how impressive it is and how difficult it is to set up a car and deal with changing track conditions over the course of a long race. Some real racing fans get this but so many don't have a clue how hard it is to be successful in ANY top level form of racing. The commitment required is way beyond anything most can imagine. If you should decide to attend a NASCAR race you will be amazed at how accessible the drivers are and how much value you get for your buck (or Pound or Euro or whatever) I'm a long time Rossi fan but love the skill level of ALL the riders and I'm truly impressed at Marquez.

F1 » Stirling Moss: Women 'lack mental aptitude' for F1


@John Actually, her record in Indy cars is pretty good. With the exception of one year, she finished in the top ten in all her other seasons. Her best year, 2009, she finished 5th ahead of Kanaan, Rahal, Andretti, Wilson, Wheldon, Hunter-Raey, Will Power and every one else. It seems that if she doesn't do much better than the guys then she is considered not very good but if she was a tailender then people would say she shouldn't be racing although they accept all the male tailenders.
