MotoGP » Ben Spies: The moment I decided to leave Yamaha


The following is an excerpt from another web site. The racing division of Yamaha didn't want Rossi back on the team in 2013, according to former Yamaha Racing engineering guru Masao Furusawa. But the suits in the marketing and PR departments drooled over the commercial possibilities of his return, and as Randy Newman famously sang in 1988, "It's Money That Matters." "Given the doubts of the racing department, the marketing and communication of Yamaha became the greatest champion of Valentino's return," Furusawa said in an interview to a Spanish magazine. Makes all the haters banging on American riders for their passports and "money" hypocrites. lol

WSS » Iddon, Rolfo join ParkinGO MV Agusta effort


Nimrod99, You've done nothing. JD Beach, 21 - 2008 Red Bull Rookies Cup champion, started road racing in 2006. Luis Salom runer-up. Jake Gagne, 19 - 2010 Red Bull Rookies Cup champion. Danny Kent runner-up. Cameron Beaubier, 19 - 2007 Red Bull Rookies Cup race winner. 7 wins in DMG Super Sport w/13 podiums, never qualified lower than 3rd in 17 rounds. These are the guys that regularly beat PJ, the guys you called "old established riders with cash" While Kent and Salom are riding in GPs, these quality riders aren't because they don't have the correct passport. PJ's there because he couldn't get a solid ride in the states. Keep typing warrior!

WSS » Iddon, Rolfo join ParkinGO MV Agusta effort


@Nimrod99, So who is this guy Iddon anyway? Never heard of him. If he's in BSB SS PJ Jacobsen had to have beaten him in his one and only SS ride. Must not be that good since he hasn't had the courage to come to the States and race. You like telling everyone over and over and over about your expertise. I've seen nothing but a biased, self important, keyboard wannabe, tool! (Terms you've used in active posts to describe anyone that has an opinion contrary to yours)

BSB » Jacobsen destined for world stage, says Neill


@phil, I'll repeat, I like PJ, he's talented. I hope he kicks everyones @ss, but don't give me that garbage about not being good unless you race in europe. If you want resume's here's a couple. JD Beach, 21 - 2008 Red Bull Rookies Cup champion, started road racing in 2006. Luis Salom runer-up. Jake Gagne, 19 - 2010 Red Bull Rookies Cup champion. Danny Kent runner-up. Cameron Beaubier, 19 - 7 wins in DMG Super Sport, never qualified lower than 3rd in 17 rounds. Josh Herrin, 22 - Podiumed in his first year in Superbike as Josh Hayes teammate. Anyway, you're entitled to your opinion, just understand that's all it is, an opinion.

BSB » Jacobsen destined for world stage, says Neill


@rod99, You asked if you were taking stupid pills? In your case it's obviously not necessary. "IMO opinion. A non UK rider weather on the way up or already established must bring money/buy the ride or if actually HIRED by the team, then if the said team does this they MUST provide a free ride to a Brit (ie a talent without money not the same old same old)" This is a direct quote from one of your posts. The pairing of Brooks and Jacobsen doesn't quite fit your own standards now does it. So, if a team "hires" a non-UK rider they have to "give" a Brit a ride? That would mean in this economy the team would have to pay for both riders?! And you had the audacity to call me a tool?! LOL
