MotoGP » MotoGP getting faster…


It is very easy to sit in a chair at a keyboard saying "MotoGP riders must risk more for my entertainment". Personally, I would prefer "closer" to "faster". Currently, Moto3 provides the closest, most exciting, most unpredictable racing, with only 250cc and at significantly lower speeds than MotoGP. Most professional racers prefer to win at the slowest possible speed. Yeee-Harrr racing belongs on the drag-strip, not on Grand Prix circuits..

MotoGP » MotoGP getting faster…


Brain:
TF2: Sense there from Tetley.
You are kidding yourself if you think that slowing down lap times by 2 seconds wont affect the popularity of the sport.
You are the one kidding yourself. It won't make one jot of difference to the popularity of the sport in The Rest Of The World, excluding USA.
As has been discussed a million times,
I've told you a million times - don't exaggerate. Brain, your problem is that most of your statements contain absolutes - surely you don't actually believe you are absolutely right all the time and those who disagree are absolutely wrong ?
series like Moto3 have close racing because it allows more riders to race at speeds that fit their comfort zone
Your imagination exceeds your logic.

RR » Honda retains McGuinness, Cummins for TT 2015


It's good to see McPint back in the Honda family, but the old girl (the bike, not JMcG) hasn't changed for several years so it has to be doubtful whether it has the pace of newer bikes, particularly the BMW. However, it is slightly worrying that in the photo McPint appears to be hiding substantial wrist strapping. When I spoke to him last year he showed me the scar from his scaphoid operation and said his wrist was healing nicely, so seeing the strapping may not be a good sign. BTW, at the weekend I heard a whisper that BMW were still talking to Mickey D . Could we see Mickey D on a works BMW going head-to-head with Guy Martin on a TAS works-supported BMW ? That would be a contest worth sailing to see.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: Full Results


Fullofit: Redding THAT far ahead of Aoyama after similar results on similar bikes ... more home town voting.
And what's wrong with home town voting ? The Italians are noted for it, the Spanish even more so. Henry Cooper, the British and European Champion Boxer, used to say that when he fought in Italy, he had to knock out his opponent to get a Draw ! But here you are, saying that British people on a British site should be excluded from voting for their (deserving) countryman ? That would be nonsense.

ProfessorX: If Rossi was any good he would have been able to podium on the dry on the Ducati, the same bike Stoner could win races on.
True, the fisherman won a WC on it, but the following season he didn't do nearly as well. The Ducati just wasn't keeping pace with the development of other bikes. Proof ? When CS switched to Honda he was back to winning ways. But I see you're in denial. To keep abreast of your hero's achievements please refer to the magazine Australian Angling Monthly.

ProfessorX:
Tetley: Prof, I don't think there's any proof to support your theory. On the contrary, take VR out of the equation, and that would leave JLo 2nd in the championship where everyone (pre-season) expected him to be.
you probably haven't been watching GPs very long have you, .
Like the rest of your self-congratulatory drivel, that statement has no validity in fact. The records support my assertion so arguing against my statement is futile.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: Full Results


JasonLewis: Redding didn't beat a world champ on equal terms. Hayden was out for awhile remember?
So, by your reasoning, the series should be put on hold until an injured rider recovers? Or should an injured rider be awarded points for the races he misses ? No, staying on the bike and avoiding injury is a criteria of success.

A weak attempt at trolling?
As Queen Victoria once said to her Gillie " Ignore him. He'll probably p*ss orf "
