MotoGP » Marc Marquez: King of the kerb


Grendlehop: @Jimmytherealone, You prob meant Vale, who personified the definition of prodigy. Until Marc defends his title successfully this year and the next, then switches to another manufacturer and defends his title 2 more times making 5 in a row, he's still going to remain Vale's shadow. Marc IS however clearly at a level Casey could never achieve.
Nothing more to add here, you summed it up nicely. Well put.

MotoGP » Pedrosa eager to join battle of Britain


@PaulW54. "Rossi fans should be more concerned about Jorge catching him, thanRossi catching Dani." Yeah that makes sense Paul ? Rossi is ONLY 13 points behind Pedrosa, and Hooray is 36 points adrift of Rossi. In the 11 races so far, Hooray has finished in front of Rossi 5 times. Yet Rossi has beat Pedrosa 5 out of 11. Only 7 races to go remember. I know you don't like Rossi, which is fair enough. But the maths (at this stage) does not fit in with your comment. Go Rossi.

MotoGP » Pedrosa eager to join battle of Britain


@ Sete. Is the glass half empty, or half full? Depending on your outlook (your pro Pedro) you can make statistics look favourable to the arguement you are canvassing. Only as recently as last week, MM stated (after losing for 1st time in 10 races) that it's not the race wins that count, but championships. You can also look back at Dani's career and see that 3 team mates have won titles in the 8 years he has been a Repsol Honda rider. To compare previous seasons and riders from other era's has to many variables. The riders you mentioned (Roberts, Sheene) only raced around 12 races in a season. Schwantz and Lawson had around15. We now race around 17. Anyway all the guys you mentioned as legends have won world titles. So yes, we will look back at Dani as being a great rider, but not (yet) a legend.

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


shamarone: re: "It looked to me like MM's steamroller was stopped not by any change in his riding, but in him lacking grip at Brno. His bike looked unsettled and struggling to turn in and hold a line (relatively, it still wasn't a Ducati), and also on corner exit." 1 word... settings. re: "Weirdly, DP's bike was great, when previously he seemed to have grip issues elsewhere like MM had at Brno." hey, how about that. what are the odds that Dan's kit would suddenly be SPOT ON at the EXACT moment that Marcus' went pear shaped...? 1 in a million...? 1 in 10 million...? I know one thing, if someone named Dani Ramal had taken themselves and a boat load of cash to the Roulette wheel that evening, they'd be retired. in all my years of watching racing, I personally can't recall a single instance of luck like that...? just sayin'.
I can. 1998 WSBK. Aaron Slights Honda blew up (honda's never did that) while leading and cost him a World title. Bad luck right

@ Talent Fan. Your reading way to much into this tyre thing. Relax. There are that many variables that decide the package they front up to the start line with, and tyres is just 1 of them. Will tyres decide the outcome of the championship? No. The way the tyres are allocated, and the fact there are 18 races in a season, means that the most consistant (best) rider will win the title come the end of the season. The rules in creating a level playing field, have improved 100% since 2007. O.K. as you are eluding to, there may be a dodgey tyre here and there, we don't yet live in a perfect world. Relax.

MotoGP » Moto2: Dakota Mamola replaces Terol at Silverstone


Simon Cartledge: Good luck to the lad, must be great to have friends in high places! Not quite sure how someone running 11th in a national championship deserves a shot like this, but I hope he can make it count.
You only have to look at what Randy did for the sport, and the ongoing charity work through Moto GP is endless. Randy is still actively involved in Moto GP and if the contibutions made should allow his son to get a leg up in front of many others, fine by me. That's life.
