MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike


AussieNSW: @vally234 I will repeat it on this site again for I dont know how many times RIDERS DO NOT DEVELOPE BIKES ENGINEERS DO that goes for ALL riders, end of lesson.
Engineers build bike yes...through similation, via computer software, however, racers give feedback to crew cheif / chief mechanic/ engineer. He then translates that to the engineers in language they understand to make changes. You cannot convice me that riders do not assist in developing a bike in real world terms ....sorry

MotoGP » Suzuki wraps up Austin test, top Open pace


I agree with some of you guys regarding young talent added some veterans in the mix. Although youth plays an important role in This sport, experience is always superior over in-experience. With the economy the way it is, are sponsors going to invest for the future or long haul? Are they going to allow the youngsters to help develop thier 1m $ bike to find that they are moving in the wrong direction?

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow talks Open MotoGP move


TrueFan: I for one am pleased to see this happening. Ducati needs the ability to make changes, or they're just clocking laps. They won't carry much extra fuel (if any), and they may not even use a 24 litre tank. They have a problem with understeer and front end feel that involves the interaction of engine and frame that has plagued them for the entire time they've been in MotoGP. The factory rules prevented them from fixing these. Now they can make changes and test them under racing conditions, and get back to the ethos that racing improves the breed. Good luck to Cal. The soft tyre will be useful in qualifying when they make some improvements. Hopefully, he'll be on a more competitive bike by the end of the year.
Truefan you have been watching this sport like I have for a number of years. I agree totally. Audi did not come into this game too fail, with the money they have invested, the changes they made, and a work horse's like cructlow and Dovi, who ha

MotoGP » Lorenzo: It's impossible to be competitive


I suspect that Yamaha being a large player in this game we call MotoGP, will look at the data and begin some re-tooling of their chasis. Last year JL reigned pretty darn good with the tires, then, well now they have been tossed a challenge. Honda seems to have a more flexible chasis than Yamaha, who in turn depend on corner speed as their weapon. Honda point and shoot. so I think Yamaha will re-tool their chasis sometime in the season to begin the sorting process, if not by the next test ? it ain't like they don't have the money or riders to make some solid suggestions. they are / have been quick to update some parts in previous seasons. Just my thinking....

MotoGP » Rossi inspired by Laguna 2008 memories


GP1 ........Are you really serious with that comment, Again with age one doesn't have the same physical functions as a younger aggressive racer/racers that are presently on the grid. They have a total different adrenalin pushing to rise to the top, some have pure grit. Regardless of what one thinks, it's only a matter of time till Rossi is able to push the way he once had. It's funny how Crutchlows bike is faster than Bradley"s or is it that he is taking more risk's to get a full factory ride. make no mistake there is some politics in every sport, just a thought....?

MotoGP » Rossi inspired by Laguna 2008 memories


I hope this comment doesn't offend anyone as a longtime Rossi fan, Cossie748 I beg to differ that the M1 is the same bike he tuned since 04, JLO took the helm when he left therefore the bike was pretty much set up and tuned for what he likes. not that easy to come in a use set ups that once worked. At some point in everyone career/age/drive changes some and things of old no longer cut the cheese. Like when Rossi came in the top riders of that era were beginning to wain as the new blood came in took names and kicked some serious A**! to boot. for me the difference is that they quit and left with a bad taste in their mouths. Rossi on the other hand is attempting to find the right combination of things to give these guy's a good run for their money. which is taking a little longer than he thought, even though he has 9 championships, for that guy's give him his proper credit....No matter what you all think this "MAN WILL GO DOWN IN THE HISTORY BOOKS AS THE GREATEST RACER OF ALL TIME" :)

MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo to return at Laguna Seca!


well I must say that I have a total new respect for JLO, I never really favored him, I guess because of the lack of charisma he never shows. However where he lacks social skills at least to his adoring fans, he has shown total BRAWN, big n****ts to get back out there and race in his condition. For that ladies and gentleman a True champion in my book. I pray that he will at least finish the race with no further injuries and that he will have the summer break to recover as he needs to......I hope all will stand with me on this
