MotoGP » Vermeulen replaces Edwards for Le Mans MotoGP


@sameoldsameold So now stating CORRECT results is "trying to wind other posters up"? You have nothing to say to ForumExpertsAreAJoke who incorrectly states that Chris' MotoGP stats are close to Hayden yet Hayden has 4 times more podiums. You have nothing to say to Realist who trys to slam Chris' stats yet they are far more impressive than Haslams. Yet I'm the one you wanna call out - for what? Actually knowing what I'm talking about and stating the correct results? EDIT by CRASH.NET! This is a forum for debate. Attacks on other posters will be removed.

MotoGP » Vermeulen replaces Edwards for Le Mans MotoGP


"CV's motogp success stats aren't that far behind Hayden, and Chris never had a Repsol Honda under his date.." @ForumExpertsAreAJoke Stats aren't that far behind? What the hell are you looking at?? Chris has 7 podiums - Nicky has 28. That's 4 times more podiums! Not to mention the actually title, more wins, more poles, more fastest laps, etc. That's beyond not far behind - that's a whole nother career. EDIT by CRASH.NET! You have been asked to tone down your comments. Do not be so agressive to other posters.

MotoGP » Vermeulen replaces Edwards for Le Mans MotoGP


er, Realist So I take you don't know Vermeulen won WSS which is a world championship. I don't care for either but since you took it there, Chris career stats are more impressive than Haslams. Chris first 2 years in WSBK (10 wins and 23 podiums) is more impressive than Haslams WSBK career of 119 races (3 wins and 26 podiums). Not that's it's already a wrap but add in Chris' MotoGP podiums, poles, and win and it's pretty clear who stats are more impressive.

MotoGP » Vermeulen replaces Edwards for Le Mans MotoGP


Nothing says "look at me, I'm on the radar, give me a good MotoGP ride" like riding at the back of the grid right?? lol. Please. Once again, Haslam would have been foolish to race this bike in it's current state. Riders put themselves on the radar by having GOOD results in wildcard rides - not back of the pack with no hope of even a top 10. Haslam would be better serve by putting himself "on the radar" by winning WSBK races and fighting for the title - not being a backmarker on hopeless kit as a wildcard.

MotoGP » Vermeulen replaces Edwards for Le Mans MotoGP


EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inapropriate comment removed. Please tone down your comments and lay off the attacks. The only riders that would take this ride is someone like Chris who is out of work, needs to show himself on something, and isn't risking missing up a full time gig. If any of you think someone like Haslam who is running at the front in WSBK and probably making good coin doing it would race this bike in it's current state than you're a idiot.

IndyCar » Alesi secures unlikely Indy 500 seat


I would have hoped Jean would have come to his senses and called this Indy thing off by now. This has disaster written all over it. It was bad enough he was trying to run with an experienced team but to do it was an Indy Lights team with a Lotus engine? He doesn't have a chance in hell of winning so why he going out there risking life and limb? Indy is the last place to be messing about because you can get injured REALLY bad REALLY quickly. He's old, has zero oval experience, running with an inexperienced team, crap engine in the car, and this isn't like the old days when the track was open for practice the whole month of May. I don't see any good coming of this. I'm with Coop - he'll be lucky and doing himself a favor if he fails to qualify.

MotoGP » Ducati: Full upgrade package for Laguna Seca


Well I guess no contracts will be sign until after Laguna, huh? Why are you guys saying Ducati didn't listen to Val and Burgess? Have you guys forgotten last year and half? Did Ducati not go in after the Valencia test of 2010 and knock up a "soft" package for Val based on his feedback and request? Did Ducati not stuff a 800cc engine in their orginial GP12 1000cc bike because Val said if was a better kit and had more rear grip? Did they not go to an aluminum frame at his request? Are we just gonna dismiss that because he had a little hissy fit? Does he expect Ducati to design a new chassis and engine every time he request it?

MotoGP » Shane Byrne to make MotoGP return?


well, look what I ran across this moring - quotes from Bird after Qatar stating he would replace Ellison dated April 12th (www.biscuittinmedia.com/hello-james-ellison-goodbye/) . As I said earlier, I don't buy for a second Aprilia can request who rides the bike as Bird is a paying customer and they have no right to request anything. One race in and Bird was already talking about Ellison having a limited amount of time to prove himself and move up the timing sheets or he would be moving on. Ellison has another two rounds, according to Bird. "He came to us saying he was a MotoGP rider, that he really wanted to ride the bike. He worked with Mick (Shanley) his crew chief before, they understand each other and get on, but James has to pick it up. I could put Shakey (Shane Byrne) on that same bike tomorrow and you know we would get better results," said Bird with characteristic bluntness. "He's got Jerez and Estoril to pick things up."

MotoGP » Shane Byrne to make MotoGP return?


@chrysalis Where do you get off stating that I'm pretending like I know Bird or that I'm in the paddock or in Britian? I don't care if I was sitting on the damn moon reading this statement he still comes off like a tw@t. End of. You can go on romantizing about Bird like he's Robin Hood giving to the poor all you want. He's not the only team owner in motorsports spending his own dime - it's been going on since the beginning of motorsports. There are other team owners world wide coughing up their own coin as well. I don't buy the story about Aprilia wanting Shakey and Bird giving in to that. Even when Bird was running factory teams he called the shots on his own riders. He PAYS Aprilia for bikes and they have as much right requesting who rides the bike as me or you. There should be data and video evidence of the chatter - it doesn't take another rider to confirm that.
