MotoGP » 'Special feeling' to beat Marquez, says Pedrosa

re: "Still, quite processional racing. Dorna needs to figure this out" (enter Qui-Gon-S1 with yet another solution stage left) by the power vested in me i officially request MotoGP race distance be REDUCED by 50%. that's right... i said it... by HALF. by lap 11, the dan/Honda combo CLEARLY had the measure of the field. now whether this was authentic...? or staged...? really doesn't matter. what-ev. the reality is continuing to race past half distance (as currently spec'd) is really nothing more than an exercise in burning up engines, fuel, and tyres. there's no point, dan passed on L6 and held the lead convincingly for 5 laps. fair play. BALL GAME...! now let's stop the race and run it for another 25 points. by shrinking the time interval, the strategy of any rider/team trying to "coast" till the end goes OUT THE WINDOW. every race in theory is a "red flag restart" and gets treated with "a sense of urgency". after all, we're supposed to be sprint racing. ok, LETS SPRINT.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: One more lap would have made difference

re: "Brno MotoGP runner-up Jorge Lorenzo feels he may have been able to challenge Dani Pedrosa for victory with the benefit of 'one more lap'. Lorenzo led the race until lap six" actually watching this round, what I started thinking was the exact OPPOSITE. MotoGP races should be SHORTENED by like 16 laps. right then, run 2 heats (think WSBK) or perhaps even 3 (think BSB) to fill an hour time slot. clearly if a MotoGP race were only 6 or 8 laps long...? you zero out the gottdamn individual machine limitations (that only reveal themselves over distance). nobody's hamstrung by their kit, and suddenly almost EVERYBODY'S in contention... geez, maniac joe on a ducati could've won that...? or maybe Jay on the Yam...? or maybe Dovi was on for the W...? LOL (ps j/k, or am i...? :) honestly, even i'm not sure if i am.)

MotoGP » 'Special feeling' to beat Marquez, says Pedrosa

re: "Give credit where credit is due..." the law of NATCORK. re: "Dani beat Marquez riding the same bike" sure, the PAINT JOBS are the same, but lift the bonnet and fiddle the right knob and they are no longer the same bikes. what, you think they cost $5 LARGE because they're UNRESPONSIVE to settings...? not so much. spin a wrench, things change... and not necessarily for the BETTER.
