MotoGP » Crutchlow crashes again, laments front-end struggles


Yeah, or maybe in a years time (which will only be half way through his 2nd year) he will have learned not to fall off all the time and will be consistently in or around 6th to 8th place (which is about all you can expect on a sat bike) - who knows. No doubt the guy needs to just calm down and bring it home in the races, but I've said for years any guy brought into GP's should be given 2 years to show whats he's got. And I'm not talking about Cal - I'm talking about any rider. If your not showing you've got what it takes by mid way through your 2nd year then you team manager will already be lining up your replacement - and rightly so. But jumping up and down on any rider mid way through his 1st (of 2) years is a bit premature. Who knows where he'll be in another year.

MotoGP » Texas secures MotoGP round for 2013


I always like it when we go to new tracks and I honestly don't have an issue with either Spain or the US, but if you end up running close to a third of the season in only two countries, thats not the best for a world championship. I do hope they keep Laguna on though - I love the place. Having said that, if the racing is good then the racing is good. Im guessing Colin won't be around to race the GP there which is a bummer.

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa begins full recovery


I don't think Dani has a thing to prove to any one. He's always been fast and anyone who knows anything about bike racing knows it. Even inured he has finished on the podium twice and you have to say he is only going to get better (thats if the op works out ok). He looks to be able to run Stoners pace for the early part of races - and if you are of the opinion that Casey is just about the fastest guy in the world (and like him or not, he is), that should tell you all you need to know about both Pedrosa and how good the Honda has been for the last few years. I hope it comes good for him. Although I hope it comes good for Casey, Marco, Dani, Jorge, Ben and Rossi. Could be a great year if they all hit form.

MotoGP » MotoGP to continue on British Eurosport in 2011


What a moaning bunch of f*ckers we are in this country sometimes. I mean 5 pages of crying about which of the 2 channels that carry MotoGP in the UK should we watch. Do we watch we the MotoGP race live and now in HD on BBC or do we flick to Eurosport and watch the 125, Moto2 and MotoGP practice live every friday and the qualifying live on Saturday and the 125 & Moto2 races live on Sunday and then have to wait a whole hour to see the MotoGP race with the commentary team of our choice? Missed it? no problem watch it on the bbc i-player for FREE. Yeah we really do have it hard don't we.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi starts new Ducati era


I love Ducatis but I think that looks pretty bad (maybe it just doesn't suit the black carbon) But anyway, I guess there is almost nothing to gain from the lap times posted today I mean, in the circumstances, who didn't expect Jorge to be quickest? He is the only big hitter to ride out of the same garage door on the same basic bike (except Dani who can't feel his own arm after 10 mins on the bike - and although that's good for w*nking, its no help when racing MotoGP bikes). Its gonna be a while till we really know who's where (maybe even the first race of next year). I say this every year, but why is the off season so f*cking long? It p*sses me right off.

MotoGP » Ben Spies 'super happy' with factory debut


God I hope Ben cam take the fight to his team mate this year. I mean, its not gonna happen over night but he has a full years data and experience at all the tracks and a factory bike to go at it with. I just love the relentless nature of the guy. And the fact he isn't an attention seeking ponce. No matter how many titles he wins, you just can't see him rocking on to the grid in a f*cking crystal studded gold helmet.

MotoGP » From one extreme to another


Martyn Greeen - What the f*ck are you talking about? What do you want from a rider. The guy has won GP's and had multiple podium finishes. He's still only, what, 19? He's to tall for a 125 now and Moto2 is the EXACT class he should move to. Wheres the joke in that? And as far as the Moto2 guys burying him, how the f*ck do you know? How many riders are there in Moto2 that are constantly running at the front week in and weeks out. I guess its gonna be tougher to run with these guys after a years experience on the bikes but you've no idea how a rider will adapt to Moto2 - look at Simon & De meglio. Go back 12 months and would you have been able to tell me who was gonna be at the front and who was no where? No you wouldn't - and you've no idea how Smith will go.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Some of Rossi's moves 'a bit much'


Twice in a row Jorge has been knocked of the podium to 2 races & he really doesn't like it does he? He complained about Nicky last race & he's at it again this round. Its a shame to be honest cos I was watching him race Rossi today and thought - good on him, Pedrosa is missing so at least he's having a proper race- really going for it - but he just makes himself sound like a total w*nker afterwards by crying about it to the team and the media. It kind of spoils what was actually a pretty cool last lap showdown. And its not as if we get to watch them every race. Jorge - either p*ss or get off the pot.

WSBK » Toseland heads for last R1 races


RawDawg "you're fully blinkered if you think JT had anything for Bayliss or Edwards if they wouldn't have went to GPs. As long as they are breathing they can roll out of bed and beat JT any day of the week. Any day of the week. Any time. Any place." Mmmmmm except that Troy didn't. I think your talking sh*t there my friend. Toseland beat Bayliss fare & square to the 2007 title and won more races (8) than Troy did (7) and Haga (6). And he did it when Troy was on the Factory Duke and that was no easy job. End of story.
