MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


TalentFan: ...... The guy is a one-man propaganda machine, and most of you lot fail to see it.
Thank you TalentFan for the sweeping generalisation that all commentators on Crash are so easily led. Or is it that should we not agree with you we are wrong? Personally I think Eugene has got one shot at it. Nobody wants to know or cares what its like to ride a WSB bike. If we have enough money, we could make one up and track it ourselves. Or go on ebay and buy a crescent machine for 40k. EVERYBODY, but everybody who is in any way into motorcycle racing WANTS to know what it was like riding a GP bike with carbon brakes, advanced electronics etc. THEN we, as true purist fans of racing want to know how the FECK MM,DP,JL VR AD etc all do it with such extreme ability and make it look so easy! When EL retires, he may well chat about nearly winning WSB,WSS etc, but will DEFINATELY chat about his experience on the fastest most sought after 2 wheeled racing machine in exist

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


RSMick: What issues? Tell you what? Your the one moaning instead of switching to another channel. I think its great as I always have!
Im with you on that Mick, If people spent as much time watching the skill and drive of the riders as they do bitching about ''close'' racing, which IMO we are getting fairly regularly, they might understand you are witnessing something very special, particularly when at the circuit. if anyone can ever get bored of watching a GP bike at over 60 degree lean angle being wrung out to dry with the riders elbow on the deck, then Im afraid you need to go watch snooker instead.

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Its a great effort by MVDS and deserved by SR, however, I would suggest cautious optimism rather than all out mesiah worship for now. It depends a great deal on what data sharing agreement is available, as this is always a struggle for a single bike team. At the start of the season this will be less important than as the season progresses and problem solving is needed. I am sure that for this investment, Bartholemy has negotiated a deal on this, however he also, being SR's personal manager, has to have SR's interests at the fore. It will be interesting to see the development of the team, as both the team and SR have the talent to succeed.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Indianbear:
Gazza1JB: It amazes me how Bautista can keep stumbling upon one Factory ride after another in MotoGP despite continued poor performance, and continually about to get the sack, factory Suzuki, then factory Honda Status, now factory Aprillia status, whoever his agent is, is clearly a legend!
when was he in the factory honda team
2010 he signed with the factory Suzuki team, from 2011 to now he has been on a ''factory'' honda albeit running an odd suspension/brake set up in nissin showa, however Im guessing that becomes obvious for some financial input with what we know now.

MotoGP » Redding reacts to Gresini Aprilia deal


''I wouldn't say that it's a decision that he wanted to make in the beginning, and I can't blame him for that, but I wish that he had told me months before that this was the decision that he was going to make. But this is the decision and I think that Aprilia can be competitive and he's made the right decision for him at the moment." I would suggest from that comment, Scotty reckons he would have a sorted LCR if he had known this a while ago......
