MotoGP » Six of the Best: Rookie Champions

Re Ernst Degner leaving the GDR for the "fortune" that Suzuki paid him - If I remember correctly I believe the amount was 10000 pounds, which for a struggling fellow from East Germany back then may well have been a fortune but seems a bit minuscule these days! There is an excellent book about Degner's and Kaaden's career which I have lent to a friend and cannot remember the title. Very interesting read. Great article by the way. Thanks.

MotoGP » Dovizioso credits Marquez’s crazy lines

Slipstreaming (as it used to be called) is a perfectly legitimate race tactic. Everyone has used it at some time in their careers. You would be stupid not too. You gain some speed if your bike is a bit slower and you can "slingshot" past the guy you are following. Why would you not want to follow a faster, possibly better rider than yourself - and learn his lines, braking points etc. Please show me the FIM regulation that claims slipstreaming or Towing is illegal.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike

Hoppy, just a thought - has anything changed over the years? The best riders get the best bikes/teams - always have. I think the actual racing is better so far this year with some pretty good scraps going on. Talent Fan, I think you are being a bit insulting - everyone (except you) are idiots and cannot see what is going on - what you are really saying is that anyone who has an opinion that differs from yours is iether an idiot, stupid or both. Maybe you should read your own posts and realise how they come across?

MotoGP » Valencia marks end of MotoGP on British Eurosport

Interesting reading all these comments. Just be thankful you don't live in Canada or the USA and suffer Speed's truly awful "coverage" with half the one hour program being taken up with such drivel from an American trying to explain the basics and most of the rest seems to be horrible Nascar advertising showing "sportsmen" pushing and shoving each other, sometimes punching, numerous crashes etc. Even more - they no longer show WSB!!!! Maybe you guys haven't got it so bad after all. By the way - I do subscribe to the MotoGp web, but still no WSB.
