MotoGP » Rossi 'not fit enough to win'

Well he isn't blaming the bike so it does not sound like an excuse to me. It was pretty brutal out there. Most were saying that Ben has Rossi's bike. If that were true than the outspoken Rossi would of said that at the end of the race rather than say he is not up to par to race yet. De Puniet had a similar injury this season and has been running around in last place since coming back. Never write Rossi off. I can't wait for next season. Yamaha has done the worst thing they could do. Just like Honda they pissed Rossi off. His mentality went from "lets develop this Ducati and see where we go" to "wheres my Duc, I'm going hunting."

MotoGP » Official: Cal Crutchlow to MotoGP with Tech 3

The guy is good but is he ready for MotoGP? He has not shown domination in WSBK. If he can't win on a regular basis on WSBK than why come to MotoGP. I wanna see a Brit rider in MotoGP but there are other options I think that would be better. Rea and Haslam for starters. MotoGP is the fastest bikes with the fastest riders. Only the best from other series should get the right to step onto a MotoGP bike. We need guys who can fight Rossi and Lorenzo.

MotoGP » Ben Spies soaks up home podium glory

Another thing to note is that Ben will have one of the best racers in the world as a teammate. Most would think thats not going to be fun, but all I can think of is the Yoshimura Suzuki days in AMA when he was with Mat. Ben thrives on having better riders partner with him. He is hungry. A bit of advice to Lorenzo, you might wanna keep that wall in the garage up.

MotoGP » Ben Spies soaks up home podium glory

Honestly I am on the fence with this one as to whether he has a factory bike or not. I've followed Ben for years, and this is his same routine. He's patient and gradually gets better over the season. And by the end he is right up there in the front. So to see him up front is no surprise here. But then seeing Rossi so far back was to big of a coincidence to ignore. Lorenzo was down on power as well so it could be just that. Spies has been claiming all year he doesn't think the factory bikes are that much better. Puts more pressure on himself that way. But this isn't superbike Ben, you can't make up the extra tenths on your own here. The nerds rule in motogp!

MotoGP » Indianapolis MotoGP - Saturday practice times

I hate to say it. But maybe the whole wall in the garage and the not sharing telemetry is finally hurting Rossi. Because Lorenzo seems to have the right set up. To bad Rossi can't see it. This is MotoGP, as sad as it is, set up is a huge factor in winning and losing. Kenny Roberts JR said in an interview this week that the electronics have the bike under so much control that you can't steer with the rear. Therefore riders lose the front end and fall. Which makes sense for Casey's issues with Ducati. Riders have less feeling with these bikes. Lame-O

RR » Dunlop sets 115mph lap on bike older than him!

It's not dangerous for the spectators like it is for the racers. It's there choice to make, nobody is holding a gun to there head. Some people won't stop bitching until they have foam padding on every sharp corner on the planet. If I had the money and a bit more knowledge of the Isle of Mann than I would gladly race in it. And if I died than so be it. Be the best death I could ever ask for.

MotoGP » Ben Spies, Nicky Hayden: Rookie season comparison

If you go to the website super bike planet there are some good articles just written about Ben Spies. He writes in to the site once a month. In his last article he said "the difference between his bike and the factory one is not much, it's just Lorenzo rides it better." Nice to know he doesn't point fingers. He knows he needs to step it up a bit, but he also admits that the difference in set up of a motogp bike and superbike can cost you a lot. I think once he gets a little more experience plus the backing of the factory team setting up his bike, he will probably close a good gap to the front. Even Rossi admits its the complete package of a team and rider.
