MotoGP » Brake problems thwart Pedrosa's chance of fast lap


i don't know about that much about Dorna...but, there are tracks in Spain, Italy that have 110,000 attending(2013). Amazing numbers compared to 40,000, 60,000 in U.S. last yr. still good attendance though, so I don't see economic gloom that your'e suggesting? I just bought four qts. of Repsol oil for my Honda...$90 or so, is it markets of sponsers that are showing this gloom? i do agree that Stoner and Marquez make better poster boy's, but would that alone be enough to rig premier bike racing?

MotoGP » Brake problems thwart Pedrosa's chance of fast lap


Cris Zarate: People just don't understand how difficult for Pedrosa to ride that fast.... May say being small is an advantage, but NO, it offers more disadvantages. The only advantage Dani got from being small is on the starts and straight... to put that is perspective... there is only one start in every race and there is only one long straight in every lap. So where is the advantage in that. Looking at Lorenzo, Stoner, Marquez and Rossi and even Bautista.... They all look comfortable is wrestling the bike... That never happens to Dani, He always look on the edge, like monkey holding on for his dear life.[block quote] I just finished wating all the 2013 races on bbc video. Dani's weight (112lbs) was mentioned alot, mainly showing how dificult it is for him to keep the rear tire down on hard braking...some amazing footage! He's a great racer for sure.
