MotoGP » Stoner: MotoGP riders hate each other


We (my wife and I and all the spectators around us)were all watching and enjoying the spectacle of it all, appreciating all the riders. All he was worried about was sprouting off his BS for everyone to hear. He was acting like a demented baseball/football fan. I felt sorry for his son and hope he doesn't turn out like his dad.... or many of the posters on here.

MotoGP » Stoner: MotoGP riders hate each other


It sounds like some of you need to see a counsellor or something to get over your issues. FYI you don't need to hate your favourite rider's opponents and read nonsense into every rider comment just to feed your hate of the other riders (or their nationality). I thought it was just people trolling but there are actually people who think like this... scary. At Laguna Seca this year there was a yellow capped 40's guy (with his son) booing and yelling abuse at CS & JL every lap (not even in the race, on Saturday). He then started on Ducati yelling out rubbish about being a heap of junk and give VR a decent bike blah blah. Everyone around (normal fans inc 46ers) him were just shaking their head and rolling eyes at him hoping and waiting for him to shut up or go away.

MotoGP » What's the story? Rossi and Ducati (1)


@ Ausrossi - Sorry you took offence to my post but there is no need to get emotional over it. I was just making an observation. I actually do include JL with the other Aliens. They are all strong everywhere (in comparison to other riders). I never said CS/JL/DP were better brakers than VR or vice versa. I dont think JL crediting Rossi as being strong on brakes was an admission that he thinks VR is better than him. JL probably thinks he himself is better in his own mind. As individuals one may be better at braking than another on certain corners at certain tracks depending on setup direction, conditions, etc. In a one on one any of them can outbrake the other by lining up the inside and letting the brakes off fractionally forcing the other guy to either back off or go offline. This method has served VR well over the years as he has the smarts/ability to do it when/where other riders aren’t really expecting it.

I don't think the 'simple level' thing is that simple at all. Casey is a demon braker as well. Watch him throwing a bike into a tight corner in person lap after lap with the back tyre bouncing a few inches in the air (eg. last corner at Sepang) and try to tell me he is just a throttle guy. No disrespect to VR but his reputation as a great braker was forged before he came up against the other 'Aliens' who are all great brakers. VR always had a penchant for braking late and sticking it up the inside forcing the other rider wide (often way off the racing line).

MotoGP » Anthony West announces MotoGP return


When it comes to CRT I think there are riders & teams sitting on the sidelines who would like to be involved. Many of them will be watching keenly to see which chassis and engines perform best before trying to get involved in 2013.... with the proven combos from 2012. There isn't much chance of any of the top Moto2 or other young talent wanting to be the guinea pigs in 2012. They don't want to risk their reputation on a potentially uncompetitive combo.

MotoGP » Anthony West announces MotoGP return


His results improved from Aragon onwards after he got a proper crew chief (Warren Willing who won 500cc champs with Wayne Rainey & KRJR on the Suzuki). Having someone that knowledgeable over seeing things and guiding setup helps when you don't have much of a buget and riding a 2010 spec bike. At one of the races earlier in the year Dunlop fitted the dual compound rear tyre the wrong way and nobody from his team even noticed. Things like this make the rider look bad but wouldn't happen in a well funded/staffed team.
