BSB » Brookes vows to prove he can be a ‘champion’

exloko: Tetley, sorry but in general terms Brooks are able to go beyond than Bridewell, probably is better than Bridewell, since Bridewell change team last year from Hallsall Kwak to Milwaake Yamaha i (and i think im not the only) expect a little bit more from him, as everyone expects from Brookes after his change from Suzi to Yamaha, .
Sorry exloco, but Bridewell started the season as number 2 rider while Brookes had number 1 rider status. But Bridewell finished ahead of Brookes in Championship. Brookes has reached a plateau, while Bridewell beat him and is still improving as a rider. I agree with you that Jellyson will continue as a front runner- I just wish he was 2 metres braver when going for an overtake.

BSB » Kiyonari: I’d wake up and remember my bad mistake…

exloko: nobody deserve cannot fight, even more at the end when all gonna be decided, but as Tetley said, Lady Luck is a capricious/fickle misstress... but fair play for Shakey, i think both have a good realtionship each other, mutual respect is what make rivals, not enemies... Kiyo still on edge and will have a next chance 2015, so lets big on and cheers for them...
Yes it is sad that Kiyo could not fight at Brands Hatch. I have met and spoken to Kiyo a couple of times this year and he is a polite and modest Gentleman, so I will be cheering for both Kiyo and Shakey again next year.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Hopefully we can push a lot harder

Earlier in the season some posters were saying that CC35 was just riding around for the money, and not making a real effort. Then they criticised him for trying too hard (on a difficult bike ) and having too many dnf's. Now, those same posters are criticising him for having fought through to a second place, and stayed on his bike longer than all the other fallers, including a bunch of "stars". Logically, CC35 can't be at fault on all counts. The same posters will no doubt have their knives out while he is getting up to speed on the Honda. Personally, I don't think he's as savvy as some riders, and he may be too honest for some PR people. He may even be a slower learner than some other riders, but he is definitely not lacking in determination, dedication and speed . A good bike, a sympathetic crew and an encouraging team manager (as Herve was ) are all that is needed for CC35 to be a consistent front-runner.

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory

lux: The TT is nothing but a track,
You've never been there, obviously. The TT is not a purpose built "track". It is 37.7 miles of public roads with no run-off, no gravel traps, no tyre walls, no meticulous track preparation. It has stone walls which the riders brush with their shoulders. It has gutters with road debris- grit, gravel, leaves, drains. The surface is patched and bumpy. It has road edges which either crumble into the grassy banks or have unforgiving concrete kerbs. It has a constantly changing mixture of positive camber and negative camber. It has slippery white lines in the middle. It has telegraph poles, road signs and suchlike at roadside, protected only by straw bales. A mistake at the TT means you hit something, VERY HARD. So pleeeese, don't diss what you don't know about.
lux :A track he knew like the back of his hand and that he loved.
You mean like Rossi at Misano, Shakey at Brands, Stoner at PI etc, etc

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory

Codger: salieri.....good posts. g.o.a.t is like is in the eye of the beholder. As you say the arguments are unresolvable. Mike would ride any bike, any capacity, any number of cylinders or gears. He rode 3 different capacities in one day too. (others did as well, but with less success). In the modern era the term g.o.a.t is bandied about far too freely. Having said that, Rossi is the stand out candidate, I suppose. Would he have managed as well in Hailwood's era.....Would Mike have succeeded in today's ? We'll never know but I would suggest that the answer is 'yes' to both.
Absolutely correct, Codger. You have given the definitive answer.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I’d like to be competitive again

Guna4699: codger he cooked it... but Lorenzo's more lean angle may also be due to his out side line and space on offer between the two to lean...
Interesting interpretations. For any given radius of corner at any constant speed the rider on the inside would have to lean further. It may be that VR is hanging off more so his bike appears to lean less. However, my interpretation of the photo would be that JLo approached wide, VR cut under him and what was captured is VR just starting to pick the bike up while JLo is cranked over to get back on line without running wide on the exit. The photographer trackside could probably tell us- after he has changed his underwear.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa regroup after double DNF

purcian: Somebody should tell Dani he has already lost the second place. his second part of the season has been disastrous. Dani you need to raise your game for next season, if don't want to end up like Ben Spies!
Pedro has numbered days at HRC I believe. What if Miller actually does get on with the job and in a year or two becomes a serious threat? DP will most likely be gone.
I agree with you both. Dani has had a decade on (one of) the best bikes and has always been the nearly-man. He's not going to suddenly improve. He reached his top plateau years ago. Now the team on his side of the Honda garage is starting to crumble. Mike Leitner is a team chief who is a great judge of talent, and he is leaving Dani's sinking ship. And another Two of Dani's team are also leaving. I really don't see Dani on the factory Repsol Honda in 2016.

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory

Hogboy: ... and Smith gets his 1st podium in 2 years. Not sure if was because of his talent or because Iannone, Pedrosa, Marquez, Bradl, A. Esargaro, Crutchlow and P. Espargaro DNF'd. Thoughts?
On this particular day, Brad was talented enough to stay on his bike to the end while for others their ambitions outweighed their talents. Please don't de-value Brad's success because he prevailed where other didn't.
