MotoGP » FIRST LOOK: Ducati’s 2016 MotoGP livery


Looks are subjective, and are not highest on the team's priorities. Look how the elegant lines of the Suter MMX500 were lost when all stickered-up. Ducati's main concern is to make it stand out on TV, and all that white will make it easy to spot even in a pack of bikes. ( Unless, that is, another team go for a predominantly white livery.) Secondly, they have left a lot of blank (blanc ? ) white above the word "Ducati" which will make it an attractive bill-board for prospective sponsors. Maybe they are waiting for a lucrative benefactor to sign a cheque ? I remember a-year-or-so ago when Ducati introduced an all-white road bike and everybody thought it was a good-looking machine. Most people would say that Ducati have never produced an ugly bike (apart from the unconventional and aesthetically-challenged 2003 Multistrada which only its mother could love ) .

MotoGP » Stoner’s Qatar test back on with reschedule


abel748: NO! neal did NOT nail it, he got it all wrong! Subject of Rossi. Lets see here "I won't ride unless I get Bridgestone tires" To Carmelo " I can go faster than you if I had your bike" (Ducati) When the same antics are pulled on him as he has pulled on other riders he cries that they "Are dangerous riders" (Tony Elias) "I want wall up because I don't want to share my info" (w/Lorenzo) Talk about a cry baby and PRIMA DONNA. The list can keep going, but what's the point. He also knows that he has legions of fan behind he him, because he has them all eating YELLOW snow cones.
This is thread about Stoner, should he test or race. Only a troll could turn it into a rant about VR46.

MotoGP » Stoner’s Qatar test back on with reschedule


Avatar: Is this the beginning of a new end?? we shall see........... Casey mentioned.. His inputs for development were hardly listened to...didn’t get the desired satisfaction out of the job.....
It's hard to find anything that gave him the desired satisfaction- he wasn't happy at Ducati the first time, it seems (as you say) he wasn't happy at Honda- he wasn't happy with most of the facets of MotoGP management- he wasn't happy with V-8 racing, and now it seems he wasn't even happy going fishing so he re-joined Ducati. Casey is undoubtedly an incredible rider, but the last half-dozen years or so have shown time and again that he is hard to please.

MotoGP » Moto3: VR46 presents team, ‘time for title’ - Fenati


Motojunky:
bikenut: Good on Rossi for putting his name to this team and lending support
Can't believe a simple (and factual) statement you made, and already 3 disagree's. Some people need to get a life.
It is almost unique in MotoGP that a current rider invests capital, effort and valuable time in creating and financing a team with the sole aim of helping younger riders. VR46 should be thanked and congratulated for his altruistic projects such as his Moto3 team, his Academy, and his Ranch. Sensible and intelligent Crash posters should make a mental note to always subtract 6 disagrees to compensate for the trolls and haters.

MotoGP » Yamaha signs partnership with VR46 Riders Academy


It is almost unique in MotoGP that a current rider invests capital, effort and valuable time in creating and financing a team with the sole aim of helping younger riders. VR46 should be thanked and congratulated for his altruistic projects such as his Moto3 team, his Academy, and his Ranch. We can now add that his undoubted influence at Yamaha has enhanced the opportunities available for promising young riders. Sensible and intelligent Crash posters should make a mental note to always subtract 6 disagrees to compensate for the trolls and haters.

MotoGP » Crutchlow plays down testing speed


The main handicap to most WSB riders who move to MotoGP is that even Champions don't get full factory rides in their first MotoGP year, so they never start off with the current year's best equipment, best technicians or biggest budgets. So, when WSB riders move to MotoGP they are at an immediate disadvantage, not through lack of talent, but lack of top opportunities. WSB lap times are very close to MotoGP lap times. WSB lap times are way faster than Moto2 lap times. Yet Moto2 is considered to be the feeder class for MotoGP. This is illogical, as Spock would say. Remember that Honda even had the Rules altered to prevent Spies moving directly from WSB to a full factory ride, then altered again so that MM93 could move from a slower formula directly onto a works bike. Cal was able to prove his worth in his Tech 3 years, when he was consistently the highest non-factory finisher, scored some poles, and made some podiums. (I'm discounting the Duc years as they screwed so many reputations.)

MotoGP » Phillip Island MotoGP test - Friday (Final)


ZeFrenchAngle: Phew !!!
L'angle Francais, mon ami mate, Good analysis but--- you don't mention Cal Crutchlow ! He finished day one in 5th. day two in 5th. and day three in 3rd, making him the most consistent rider over the whole test and well worthy of comment. The closest behind Cal in terms of consistency has been Vale, with a 4th, a 6th and a 5th and even Vale was behind Cal in the final times of the last two days. All the other riders had times which were up and down like a bride's nightie. If Cal carries on like this he is very likely to repeat his Tech 3 seasons where he was consistently the highest placed non-alien. From another perspective, Cal seems now to be a more mature rider, less out-spoken, and he falls off less often than he used to.
