MotoGP » MotoGP Argentina - Race Results


joe850: ... The TC sensor comment made me chuckle. can someone refresh my memory on the TC sensor? Did MM knock Dani's one off and Dani fell far back in the race?
Sort of. M&M clipped the back of Danny's bike, (or was it Casey? It was a team mate anyway) and broke or cut the data cable from the rear wheel speed sensor, as used by the traction control. So on the very next corner, Danny laid it over til his elbow was down, like normal, and then grabbed all the throttle, like normal, but unlike normal, there was no traction control to do the clever stuff for him... The spin at that time was TC is only there as a safety net. Right, so Danny screwed it up on the very next corner because his safety net stopped working?

MotoGP » Vintage Rossi outwits Ducati for Qatar glory


That was epic. I made a joke recently about Troy Baylis, that he did alright for a bright keen young fellow, and if he keeps doing that sort of work he has a bright future. Well, the same goes for Vale. 20 years ago I watched that young man win his 2nd ever 125cc GP. I noted he rode it like a 500, optimised exit speed rather than entry. So I turned to the wife and made a prediction. "That young man is a future 125cc, 250cc, and multiple 500cc world champion. Mark my words." I didn't predict he'd still be doing this stuff 20 years later...

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


... as an example of exemplary skills and talent, for doing something you folks would have crucified him for? And while that race is our subject, Casey passed Rossi up the front straight and around the first bend, on the outside, about 3 times and had several other tries at it which didn't quite come off. I saw about 8 or 9 attempts, and they were some of the bravest moves I have ever seen in bike racing. Do we hear those mentioned later? No. Only that Stoner's a fool and he falls over, and Rossi showed him how it's done. You wait until somebody takes your favourite rider, your nationality, down that way, and then we'll see what you say about it.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to make motorcycle racing comeback


RFS131: Shame on the hate filled a$$hole post-race laguna seca 2008. Embarrassment to himself, the fans, and the sport of motorcycle racing. Casey Stoner is getting the disrespect he deserves in my opinion.
My comments seem to be disappearing... Let's see if this one falls between the cracks. I am a big fan of the BSB championship. It shows off very fast and very competitive racing, and a truly outstanding level of sportsmanship and due care for the people you're competing with. The move Rossi pulled which caused Casey to run off track and then fall down, would not have been well received in BSB. But the move he pulled a few laps before that, at the Corkscrew would have seen him tarred & feathered, banned for life. Nobody in BSB does stuff like that. I'm an Aussie, and I have seen Australians almost lynched at their first appearance, because they didn't quite live up to your standards of sportsmanship. Ok, that's reasonable. So why hold Rossi out as an exampl

F1 » Six of the Best: Here comes the rain again...


"Just so you know, I am half-Italian, and I don't hate Ferrari..." We all want to see Ferrari there, they're the heart and soul of the sport. Same on the bikes, we all want to see Ducati in the hunt. Problem is they look for advantages that the rest don't have. There's a certain kind of attacking aggression you want in your lead driver or rider, but I'm not sure you want the team or team principal to exhibit the same trait. Look at football for a moment - if your captain gets sent to the sin bin for punching another player, that's part of the game. But if the team owner gets caught bribing the referee, that's different thing.
