MotoGP » Stoner dodges gopher, new Indy surface 'pretty bad'

Laguna Seca and 'Indy' are not Grand Prix tracks. They are just little club tracks. They are on the calendar for political reasons. This is why the rider's hate these tracks. Some riders are frank when expressing their views, so they will say "This track is garbage." Others are more job conscious or media savvy and will say nothing. There is no reason to get hung up on nationalistic pride about somebody's rubbish racetrack. You didn't make it did you? Bring on the Circuit of the Americas and dump these two kiddies tracks.

MotoGP » Abraham to run special livery in home race

@ john RTS Mr Hardon is not being pedantic, like some, he is just embellishing the truth a little. The obvious meaning is that here is a rookie, of seemingly average quality, on an over the counter bike, riding as a privateer, and yet he seems to be pushing the "Greatest of All Time" and the 2006 world champion, who are on factory machines with the largest budget etc ad nauseum. Is that clear enough for you, or did you "miss that one"?

WSBK » Hopkins defies the odds for WSBK pole

Any rider that can make a comeback like this, is a hero. If you don't like Hopper then you are a mug, and you cannot call yourself a fan of motorcycle racing. I couldn't care less if he is from the USA or Timbuktu, so long as he keeps riding like this then he has my vote. As for Suzuki, if they are thinking of sending Hopper to MotoGP, then they better repay his loyalty with a bike that can win.

WSBK » de Puniet considering WSBK switch?

1/ WSBK is a world series - MotoGP is a spanish series with a couple of USA races and a few odd tracks here and there 2/ There are only 6 bikes in MotoGP that can win, 2 Yamahas and 4 Hondas, next year it looks like there will be only 4 3/ If you are good enough you can fight for the podium in WSBK. Doesn't matter how good you are in MotoGP you will be fighting for scraps.

MotoGP » Stoner: Too early for title talk

Rossi rides as fast as is needed to safely secure the championship never anything more. His last corner passes, like the one on Sete, were never a 'fight to the finish', just the show. Rossi always said as much in his post race interviews. 'I did ...... and then I push ....." The only time I can recall where he went outside his safety zone was at Phillip Island in 2009. Stoner was no threat so why was Rossi riding his nuts off to try to beat Stoner? Because Stoner had beaten Rossi at the holiest of holies, Mugello, Rossi's track, Stoner knew it, Rossi knew it, and it was payback time. Did Rossi tell the press, no way, he plays the press like a fiddle. They were still dribbling about Laguna 2008 which was a nothing event. Those days are gone. If Rossi wants to join the boys at the front, it is a whole new ballgame. To quote Rossi "For me, first now Dani, but especially Stoner and Lorenzo, are faster than us, and faster than me, are in better shape, and they ride in a better way." Tha
