MotoGP » Valentino Rossi accident update

bill.stark.12382: Big knock, saw him lying there in a confused state, glad he's ok
At the time of me writing this, there are 39 agree 4 disagree. What sicko's would disagree with "Glad he's OK"? CRASH! you know who they are- send them a note- Explain that us grown-ups don't tolerate that sort of childish, heartless attitude.

MotoGP » MotoGP Aragon - Full Qualifying Results

Ian One 3rd, Cal 5h, Dovi 9th. Ooops ! Looks like Ducati got their parts confused and accidentally gave Cal some good bits. And Ian One showed that hand-me-downs might be better than "New, improved". Pol 4th, VR 6th, JLo 7th. Hey, Lin, that's not what you told Herve to do. I can't help anticipating that there'll be some place-swapping in the race. Which is good. Very good.

MotoGP » Rossi pushing for victory repeat

Codger: no rider will ever match Ago's percentages, his win rate was through the roof. ( there were reasons, but not Ago's fault. You can only beat who is there at the time ) Riders today can beat his number of pole positions though.
True, but no-one will ever know how much Giacomo and his MV's had in reserve, and whether he could have gone faster if he was seriously challenged. I suspect he rarely had to ride a full race at 100 percent. All we can say with certainty is his results on the MV were a long time Ago. ( see what I did there ? )

MotoGP » Pedrosa focussing on Rossi fight

TalentFan: Pedrosa is the best No2 any team is likely to get.
You mean prepared to play second fiddle? There are other excellent riders who could do that.
Also there could be a myriad of reasons as to why he isn't able to fight with his teammate.
No 1 reason is that he's not nearly as fast as MM93.
Also, there's a good chance he can still finish 2nd in the standings and the record at coming tracks favours the Honda super-computer.
I agree there's a chance, but I wouldn't say a good chance. VR46's star is on the rise, while DP has become used to getting beaten. In a side-by-side, two-horse race between DP and VR, most people would expect Vale to come home first.

MotoGP » Ducati confirms 'GP14.2' debut

An Englishman stopped his car in Scotland and asked a local "is this the way to Glasgow?". The local replied "If I was going to Glasgow i wouldn't start from here." Ducati find themselves in a similar situation. The bike has long been an enigma. Many riders and observers have commented that the bike needed a rider who would ignore its foibles, wrestle it, and force it to do what they wanted. Many said that was how Stoner did it. Ducati ignored the advice from VR46 and others about how to tame it. Ducati even sent one rider to the shrink! Then along came Dovi (smooth rider) and Cal (aggressive rider) and Gigi (the thinker), and everything changed, with the forceful rider (Cal) not getting the predicted success and the smooth rider (Dovi) slowly moving the bike towards the front, thereby contradicting the Stoner theory. It is an enthralling and enigmatic situation, a story of imponderables and contradictions and personally I'm looking forward impatiently to see how the plot progresses

MagicNumber........." even Codger who speaks a lot of sense most of the time. Quote pompous facts? You'll get a disagree click"
Codger: Not sure about the first bit, and are you calling me pompous ? :)
Ignore him, Codger. He has to be the epitome of pomposity to think he is the arbiter of what is pompous or not. Facts are facts. Facts don't have an opinion nor an attitude. If TragicNumber doesn't recognise that it is futile to disagree with proven and recorded facts then he is lacking in the Smarts department and overstocked in the conceit bin. He says "It's a bleeding meaningless message board"- so why does he bother reading it ? And why does he bother posting? And if it is "bleeding meaningless" why does he think his "disagree" is worth the effort of typing it? File TragicNumber under "Troll".

MotoGP » 18 years means new record for Valentino Rossi

MotoMarc: Disagree Tetley, Rossi's only other competition for top honors in GP's is Ago. With the two bad years with Ducati that may have sealed the deal not to surpass Ago's 120 wins (or so wins) or 8 championships in the top class but with two years and improving form you never know what he can accomplish before he finally hangs up the leathers. As I've never seen Ago race other than in old videos on DVD and from what some say that he didn't have any real factory competition during the then in my view he's #1.
Sorry, MotoMarc, but I can't see what you're disagreeing with. I gave Ago max credit as being among the all-time greats. Many enthusiasts agree with including Mike Hailwood, especially as he came back after 11 years retirement to win at the IoM TT. And on the real road circuits, Joey Dunlop's 26 TT wins place him head and shoulders above his rivals, while his humanitarian work adds to his status. I'm sure even Vale would not object to being in their
