MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


Aww Jeez ! Stoner this , Stoner that. Enough! Enough! Stoner has no more to do with 2014 MotoGP racing than Kevin Bloody Wilson, Mr Turnip, or our bin-man. Why do the same boring OCD obsessives keep dragging his name up in every thread? "Cal signs for LCR", Stoner would have signed to ride two bikes at once. "Marquez wears red socks" Stoner would have chosen a faster colour. "Rossi comments on the wallpaper" Stoner would have hung it better. Give it up lads, your tape's on loop. We've read your same arguments time after time and all it proves is that you have nothing new to say. 2014's topics don't include Stoner in any way, shape or form. Casey was good, but he's history. He's gone walkabout.

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


Long-time Crash posters told them this would happen when we first heard that the Eurosport coverage was ending and would be replaced by BT subscription channel. I remember citing the example of Bernie's failed attempt at his Pay-to-view Formula One service. BT must by now have recognised that what they pay to Dorna is not being recouped by viewer numbers and I expect that BT will already be talking to Dorna about a revised contract to EITHER let BT sell coverage to other broadcasters OR pay less and let Dorna sell coverage to other broadcasters. Personally I won't be subscribing to BT Sport. My son has a subscription to MotoGP.com and is not at all impressed by their coverage, so I won't be getting that either. I actually think the Monday night highlights show on ITV4 is good, but I do miss the excellent racing of Moto2 and Moto3. Consequently, I expect changes to MotoGP TV broadcasting arrangements and Rights for 2015 and beyond. Meanwhile, BSB, WSBK and TT coverage is great.

MotoGP » Colin Edwards steps down at Forward


Mark53: I'm surprised they didn't bring in another over rated, under performing Brit. There aren't enough mediocre British riders out there. We need more! Funny, three races in the USA and one US rider. One Brit race and shyte loads of mediocre Brit riders\blockquote] “One US rider”? Colin plus Nicky is 2. With Spies it was 3. And 3 races in USA? Just look at the empty grandstand seats and the acres of no-one at all around your tracks. Then look at Brit MotoGPs and you will see packed grandstands and fans all round the circuit. On attendance alone, the USA does not deserve three races. Riders have to WANT a place in MotoGP and show the commitment to EARN their place on the grid. The Brit riders in MotoGP have served their time, they and their families have made the sacrifices to get there. So have Colin and Nicky. They all DESERVE their seats. There can only be one winner, but there is no shame in a mid-field finish in motorcycle racing's premier series.

MotoGP » Colin Edwards steps down at Forward


Vilas46: Good Luck Colin for the new jobs and i hope to wach you more times... I think Colin should do like Rossi and try to build one Team for Moto 3 or Moto 2 to Help American riders join Motogp, IF this American riders that are now in Motogp really whant to help there nation then they have to do somethingh...
He already has his boot camp in the USA, which is enjoyed by both new and experienced riders, and if he joins Michelin to develop their MotoGP tyre and continues to help develop Forward's MotoGP effort he'll be too busy to start any new projects. Give the man a break, he's served his time and earned a rest from the pressures of competition. He can leave with his head held high, having been there, done that, got the Teeshirt, scuffed the leathers, and bearing his scars with pride.

MotoGP » Unbeatable Marquez equals Doohan's perfect 10 at Indy


Codger: A really great race and all you can do is bring up the Stoner rubbish yet again. Two things to bare in mind. The first is that in Casey's final year he finished the season behind Lozzer and Dani. The second is that neither Jorge or Dani can beat Marc. Work it out. If you really are a fan of Casey then let him enjoy his retirement.
And so say all of us. Bullseye, Codger !

MotoGP » Unbeatable Marquez equals Doohan's perfect 10 at Indy


cossiegaz:Yes you're right but a lot of it with Stoner was down to his frame of mind, he was so frustrated with constant rule changes and the negative attitudes from Rossi worshipers and that unfortunately got in the way of his racing, if he could come back with a clear frame of mind and ignore the sad yellow brigade then maybe just maybe he may have an answer to Marquez's domination!
Only a fisherman obsessive could turn a Marquez win thread into an anti-Rossi rant. Stoner moved out. MotoGP moved on. You should , too.

MotoGP » ‘Somebody must stop this!’ - rivals talk Marquez domination


MM93 on the RC213V is in a class of his own. Fact. But why? Look at the tricks cycle and motorcycle riders do these days. They are doing things thought impossible only a few years ago. Double back-flip? Sure, why not? Where's the foam pit? Just like today's bedroom guitarist can play the Hendrix licks that were unthinkable before Jimi developed what his past had taught him, today's new riders and engineers all have the opportunity to learn from what went before them. In the case of the RC213V, Honda have the vast resources which enable them to develop faster and further than other less wealthy manfrs. In the case of MM93 he sees yesterday's limits and those of the days before yesterday, and realises they are not finite, not set in stone and like Jimi he is skilful and innovative enough to advance them. Dorna are trying to rationalise the rules to cap the achievable limits. Until they succeed in that aim the other teams must somehow raise their limits to compete. Not an easy task.
