MotoGP » Rossi: This is MotoGP - you can never relax


SpeedyBB:
frontbrake: I posted at the start of the season a yamaha rider would win the WC and since Vale pulled on the no ten shirt in Argentina i new that he will be the champion for this season. He is the best track rider ever but the overall rider or roads and track is either ago or Mike Hailwood and i would vote for the latter.
The critical difference is that "Mike the Bike" could throw a leg over anything and ride the wheels off it, whereas Ago was a "golden boy" who always had his MV Agusta and factory backup, during an exceptionally feeble era of GP racing (one reason I retired - there was almost nothing for privateers to ride, and even the factories were pulling back). I remember the two of them zipping past me on the Island, Ago looking smooth and balanced, Hailwood fighting that Honda 500 every moment, every which way but loose. Horrible handler but he still managed to win on it.
if you raced against Ago and Mike hats off

MotoGP » Rossi wins dramatic wet British GP


Well I guess I got it right not being too bothered by JLo catching up with Rossi I had said if Rossi remains calm, doesn't ride over his limit and crashes, wins once or twice, he may very well win the season. I had also said JLo may now feel the pressure and ride worse. he did. But I do not write off JLo. The pressure is off him now and he will be back with vengence in Misano. Still if Rossi remains cool and patient he will dominate in the end and walk away with the 10th which I wish him and us, his fans.

MotoGP » Rossi wins dramatic wet British GP


I am not a fan of Marquez not even close, And today I was worried early on in the race that he would take someone down. He looked pretty aggressive. but I cannot deny his riding skill, dry or wet. he was the only one able to threaten Rossi on his on form on a wet day. So I have to salute Marquez for his impressive shadowing of Rossi even if eventually he crashed in the process.

It neither particularly impressive nor very smart to keep riding above ones capabilities just to score yet another DNF. He is lucky he did not injure himself with this bonehead attitude. If he were a bit smarter than this and would occasionally give away one or two positions, he would be well in the mix for the WDC.
I give him credit for riding before he crashed. Had he been a worse rider he would have crashed waaayyy sooner, as many others did at a much slower pace
