MotoGP » Another 16th for ‘top CRT’ Laverty

Michael Laverty is getting excellent results on a home-made chassis in a team run by a chicken farmer. I can't remember the last time he was last on the grid after qualifying. I can't remember the last time he finished last in the race. I can't remember the last time he fell off and failed to finish the race. He is in a truly private team with a fraction of the resources of other competitors. Say what you like about Birdy, but his small team is racing in the Blue Riband Class and getting genuine results far better than anyone could reasonably have expected.

MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium

MotoMarc: Garcia, good analysis but I think the difference besides the starting position and how Marquez could close the gap to JLo and Rossi couldn't is due to the bike. .
If the Honda is so fast how come JL passed MM on the start finish straight ? when you come back with answer, why could it not be the same for MM.
Two bikes running closely in tandem are more aerodynamic and therefore faster than one bike running alone. Racing cyclists know and exploit that phenomena. So JLo and MM93 together wheel-to-wheel were faster than VR46 in a lonely 3rd. You can't alter the laws of physics. JLo passed MM93 early on the straight because he exited the previous corner with more corner speed. MM93 passed JLo at the end of the straight because he had a power advantage and was better on the brakes. Simples.

MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium

Arxhtektov: Sounds like yellow fanboy apologist time here. . Check the website for the data.
You destroy your own arguement by needing to employ name-calling to support it. The name-calling identifies you as an extreme VR hater with a biased and therefore irrelevant viewpoint. EDIT by CRASH.NET: Not to mention name calling gets the post deleted.

MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium

So no faster then
Each was faster but in differing places. VR46's poor starting position let JLo and MM93 pull out a gap, despite VR's carving quickly through the pack. Reaching 3rd Vale pulled away from the others, but by then JLo and MM93 had checked out together and the laws of physics kept them seperate from Vale. For MM93 it was business as usual. We won't know if JLo's performance was a flash in the pan until a few more races have been completed. To really know which of the three is currently the best they would need to start from side-by-side on an unstaggered grid, then race for 15 laps to cancel out the influence of fuel and tyres. That would be an enthralling tussle.

RR » TT2014: Rider killed after incident in Supersport race

Sad news. But at 65 years Bob was almost certainly faster and safer than most of us posters. It isn't just older riders who are claimed by the TT Mountain Course. Many younger, fitter men have suffered the same fate. So age alone cannot be the reason. Bob's vast experience probably made him safer than the newbie, head-down, arce-up hot-shots who think they are the fastest riders on the planet and rely on their certainty that "It'll never happen to me.".

WSBK » PICS: Guigliano slips off at Donington Park

I like Guigliano. He's a fighter. He's very fast. He's unpredictable and he's exciting to watch. He's already getting amongst the front men, while so many established names are fading at the back. Davide will learn how to stay on the bike, and when he does he will be a consistent front runner and podium finisher. It's possible to teach a fast rider to become safe, but almost impossible to teach a safe rider to become fast.

MotoGP » PIC: Rossi leathers pay tribute to Marco Simoncelli

No-one at Mugello is using this opportunity just to promote the memory of their well-loved local favourite, Super Sic. There is no way that they, or Sic will benefit from any of this. The beneficiaries will be all those who are helped by the Simoncelli Foundation. All the stars, teams and companies who are taking part in helping to raise money for that charity are to be applauded. I am extremely disappointed that Crash posters are being so negative in introducing arguements concerning comparisons with Kato or any other deceased rider. This is purely a charitable initiative, and I am certain that Sic would encourage any venture using his name to help others.
