MotoGP » Marquez is MotoGP’s ‘volcano’


philholt101 ..... fair comments. If you can watch the original footage (not hazy YouTube stuff) you can see Sete make a late dive for the apex. He found Rossi already there (why didn't he see him ? They were level after all) Who knows ? I still think Rossi ran him wide though. Race Directors count all of these last corner clashes as 'racing incidents' Ironically it was a last corner incident between Nicky and Colin that gave Nicky the 5 points that he needed for the Title in 06. (A Rossi fan could write that as ".......cost Rossi the Title....) :)

MotoGP » No 2016 engine for satellite Hondas at Sepang?


AsssieNsw....After an adjustment period they would all be able to ride sans aids.......Lap times would rise quite a bit, there would be a lot of high sides, and the really diddy men would be further back in the finishing order. The riders would handle it ok but while they waited for the Engineers to bring in slower acting cable throttles, a drop down to 5 maybe 4 gears, and other 'mechanical' aids.....there would be a lot more visits to the hospital. Lke you, I don't like the Elctronics but maybe us punters are better off with things as they are ?

MotoGP » Bridgestone era ends with ten more lap records


sportrider.com look for.....Jeremy burgess talks about his move to ducat with rossi "The current Ducati, a second per lap off the pace, is clearly not a solution. Some Ducatisti imagine that if only Casey Stoner would come back, a new golden age could begin, but Stoner’s 2007 championship on a Ducati took place on special Bridgestone tires custom designed for Stoner’s style and the Ducati’s design, the spec tire era had not yet begun".

MotoGP » Marquez is MotoGP’s ‘volcano’


philholt101....It is impossible to keep Rossi's name out of any thread, whether the mention is for or against him. Your question to Moto works the opposite way round just as well. My view on the Rossi Gibbers incident, as mentioned above, is a little different to both sides view. To my mind Rossi had every right to go for that gap....Gib had taken a wide line on previous laps as well as the last lap, he left a gap, Rossi went for it and there was a collision. Rossi didn't hit Gib, it was more like the other way round.....He didn't stand his bike up to avoid because it looks like he didn't see him. Marc made exactly the same move on Lorenzo, but Jorge stood his bike up. Having said that I firmly believe that after the coming together Rossi could have left enough, just enough, room for Gibernau to stay on the track.
