WSBK » Laverty ‘snaps’ foot mid-race, carries on

jennifer.lee.712161: I personally think if a rider is injured they shouldn't be allowed to race. Their health should be paramount!
Two people are primarily involved in that decision. The rider and the Official Doctor. If either one of those says "No" to racing then the rider sits it out. If they both say it's OK to race then the rider continues. These riders are Tough with a capital "T", Determined with a capital "D". Ambitious with a capital "Am". The Docs are experts at assessing and treating injuries. They don't need someone at a keyboard, somewhere in the world maybe thousands of miles (or kms) from the incident, someone who has only "heard" about the injury and can only imagine how debilitating it is or isn't , telling them what they should and shouldn't do.

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi

SkyWilk: I would rather have real competition and different winners than "smiles" and "exuberance".. i want to watch a race, not a circus, or some sort of personality cult group. But it's funny that when Stoner and Lorenzo were praising each other, you lot had a very different opinion.
I'd say the race in Catalunya was both competitive and sporting and enjoyable for riders and viewers. Edge of the seat stuff. A great show. And without the "show" viewing figures would fall, therefore advertisers and sponsors would take their money elsewhere, investment in the series would decline and eventually the TV companies would drop MotoGP. The "circus", the "personalities", the hordes of ardent fans waving flags supporting their favourites, the celebrations- they are all essential for MotoGP to remain a world-wide success. I can't believe you'd prefer to watch a glum event.

MotoGP » Suzuki finding a good direction, says De Puniet

This topic is generating more Rumours than a Fleetwood Mac album. On his blog today, Neil Hodgson says Cal Crutchlow is looking favourite for the Suzuki seat. The managers of most riders whose contracts are ending (or who have get-out clauses or who can negotiate their exit ) will be actively starting rumours that their riders are talking to various Teams. This is to create the impression that the rider is in demand and is designed to increase his worth to his current team and create interest from other potential employers. Suzuki won't object as it keeps their name prominent in the media. With all the riders who are being linked with Suzuki, they'll probably need to fit pillion seats to get them all on the bikes.

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi

Insidejob: "guys relax the only facti is stoner had no guts when he came to know that competition is going to be much more tougher than he run away from the battle thats the fact!" Thank you for your facts, Mr Fact. I'll make a note of them. We wouldn't want opinions to take precedence over facts now would we?
Here's a few more facts. 1. The fisherman retired some years ago. 2. The fisherman has no relevance to this years Championship. 3. This is a thread about Rossi and Marquez. 4. Have you noticed the joy, smiles, laughing, exuberance, happiness on the podiums these days since the fisherman decided to sling his hook instead of race MotoGP?

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi

Tetley: Stoner and Lorenzo going at it swapping victories and showing respect at the podium any day.
PS - don't confuse self-admiration for respect towards others (re Jlo) and don't confuse simmering discontent for respect towards others (re stoner). DP was the only one of those 3 that had respect for anyone!
That quote should not have my name on it. I never wrote those words.

MotoGP » Crutchlow calm as erratic engine ruins race

PatrickD: Cal's qualifying performance here was an embarrassment.
The chances are that whatever the problem was in the race, it was there at the start and during warm-up and during qually, probably initially causing an undetectable performance drop but gradually getting worse until it stopped the bike altogether. While the bike was not displaying any adverse symptoms it is unlikely that they would change any significant component , so the data should show what the problem was and where the blame lies. It isn't because Cal isn't trying, and that will be obvious to Team management.

MotoGP » ‘Power cut’ strategy costs Lorenzo

rattle: cosseiga rossi has the mindset to adapt? Wonder what happened in 2011 and 2012 then
What happened ? The Ducati bike was in decline and had stopped being unbeatable long ago. Ducati management thought they could get back to winning by just adding a World Champion rider. Ducati management subsequently ignored what the rider was telling them, although other riders had told them the same in previous seasons. VR46 and JB were able to improve the bike's times compared with the previous year but Ducati continued being unable or unwilling to make the much-needed improvements. After VR46 and JB left, the bike got even slower and its result became poorer. That's what happened. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Q E D.
