MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'

Brain: .
Were are your Brain (less)? Out hiding? Guess Lorenzo "is on the down side of his career" - has not won a single race this season is his teammate is kicking his fine ash.
As i have been saying, the bikes are as close as they are going to get, and its up to the rider, Today Rossi was the faster rider,
Err, No, -Brain. That's not what you've been saying at all - it's only a week since you were arguing that JLo is the best ever, and telling us all that IF VR had one dnf it would drop him to 4th in the Championship. Shame you didn't consider the other "if" scenario that, VR46 would bag a great win which would place him only 8 points or so behind Dani and poised to overtake him for 2nd in the Championship. And move further ahead of JLo. I'm not knocking JLo, but your fanaticism for him is blind to all other eventualities.

MotoGP » Vintage Rossi clinches emotional victory at Misano

SpeedyBB: you could see very clearly that Rossi was out-riding the young guy on a machine that was clearly slower.
Slower? Don't think so. VR passed MM on the straights as well.
Pedrosa? Got to feel compassion for the guy,
He has 2 options- hang on and mature like Colin Edwards, or retire with a year left on contract.
Classic Rossi. He rattled Marquez the same way he used to rattle Biaggi.
That's for certain. VR brought back to my mind his races when he followed Biaggi so closely, selling dummies left and right, until Biaggi just fell off trying to stay ahead. This time MM just fell off trying to keep up. Yamaha seem to have found some extra performance. Their expenditure on clutch-free gear-changes has helped, plus they can now use bigger brake discs to brake later and deeper. It all adds up.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return

MotoMarc: RS it's fairly simple, most if not all factory teams are just that factory teams espeically in Motogp. Maybe Gresini will be noted as a "Factory" team but really unless Aprilia is running the team would it really be a Factory team. Get it.
Remember- Teams, factory or not, can't just turn up and get a grid slot. All the available 2014 slots are currently taken, so the only way Aprilia could get on the grid in 2015 was to buy or rent another team's slots. There was talk of Aprilia buying Paul Bird's team places but maybe PB was asking too much? By teaming up with Gresini, Aprilia get their grid slots , Gresini get factory bikes and there's two teams of race mechanics to choose the best from. And there are benefits in running as a "non-factory" team, as Ducati showed in 2014.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return

" Aprilia will race under the same Factory rules as Ducati and Suzuki in 2015, meaning they can run their own ECU software but still benefit from the Open class concessions" Great to see Aprilia's return. If Ducati are to have their open-class concessions for another year (2015) , and bearing in mind Dovi's recent performances on the fast-improving bike, they could be a serious regular threat for the podium's top step next year.

MotoGP » Rossi: Misano is my track, I love this place

VR46 -."We will try to prepare the bike perfectly, from the first day. I want to stay in front and try to fight with Jorge and Marc." I think we already knew that . This press release has all the hallmarks of the Press Officer bigging-up VR's obvious love of his home circuit. Be prepared for the following press releases... JLo "- fight with Marc -" Dani "- fight with Marc-" Dovi "- bike improvements, aiming for podium-" Cal "-bike not this, bike not that-" Brad "-among the factory bikes-" Asparago Bros “-which one am I today-” Niki “-yee-harrr-” Colin "-chaw, chaw, Hyyochh, Phhyuhhhtt, Ting-" Livio "-low growl-" (beyond human hearing spectrum) Lin "-schtumm-" Naka “-our plan is to make plans-” Bird “-just nipping out to pay in at the bank-” Carmelo "-Next year will be more equal-" BT Boss "-Oh, Sshh**tt-“ and so on We could almost write their press releases ourselves. The trick is trying to pick out the gems that actually say something significant.

MotoGP » Donington Park to host 2015 British MotoGP

Banned: At the recent MotoGP at Silverstone a weekend ticket would have cost you £110 and this did not include car parking or camping. If you bought three separate tickets Friday was £20, Saturday was £45 and Sunday was £90.
Assuming you mean £110 EACH, that's £220 for two persons. Whereas at Catalunya we were charged 90 Euros ( about £72 ) for the two of us for the whole 3-day weekend with free parking. Or to put it another way, Silverstone entry costs a fraction over 3 times more than Montmelo. Just the thought of it makes my wallet cry

WSBK » Aprilia boss talks World Superbike future

CliffEdge: No they don't. What they need are SPONSORS. If Aprilia was to remain in WSB with a team such as Alstare they would be lucky if they could actually cover all their costs there never mind using that to fund their MotoGP project!
I agree that "with a team such as Alstare they would be lucky if they could actually cover all their costs" That's why my actual words were "Aprilia really NEED to reach a profitable agreement with a non-factory superbike team to bring in some cash to fund their MotoGP project." Note I said "profitable". Finding Sponsors for a non-factory team is what the non-factory team have to do. Any Sponsors which Aprilia can attract will want their names on the GP bike and their cash directed to the MotoGP project to improve their results and therefore their media exposure. Making a profit, not loss in WSBK should be Aprilia's aim.

WSBK » Giugliano: Always a risk riding at 150%

shamarone: there are roughly 6,900 languages on planet earth...ok, so with that many languages there HAS to be one in which the word "mentor" has a direct translation to the English word "trellis" right...?
Shampoo, you're quite amusing... sometimes. The word "trellis" can be traced back to the Latin "Iconic" and the Japanese "outmoded". Yes the trellis was great in it's day- but so was the 8-track cartridge tape. (Smiley Face )
