MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate

It just doesn't make sense to me.
He was the fastest Honda rider last year (and it was a slow bike). He rode the pants of that machine last year to be the only Honda to mix it with the leading pack. This year, he's the fastest KTM rider - leading a pair of Hondas. He's been the rider this year who has been consistently fast on all tracks. On two occasions he's been so strong on the brakes that he was un-passable ... even with a pack of bikes at his heals for the entire race. If you don't see anything special there, that's just because you don't have a clue.

MotoGP » Rossi talks wrong tyre choice - Lorenzo, Marquez risks

Rossi wouldn't have won even if he started on the grid with wets. He was only 10s down after lap 1 but 25s at th end of the race. The mistake that Rossi made was changing to the wets. He would have won if he stayed on the slicks. Brock Parkes started on the slicks and dropped 50+ seconds on the first couple of laps. But that's when the rot stopped. By lap 7 or 8, he was in 6th place. 6th place on a PBM and on the right tyres!!!! Of course the PBM is crap and he slowly went backwards, but still ended uptheir best finish of the season. It was the right strategy.

MotoGP » Crutchlow loathe to run soft tyre 'out of principle'

Edfummi: Didn't he say last year his style was similar to stoner's!? Now all of a sudden he rides like lorenzo ? Every which way the wind blows
That was two years ago. "At Barcelona, when asked by whether the plight of the many top riders that have struggled on the Ducati worried him, Crutchlow told reporters it did not, saying that the similarities between his own riding style and Casey Stoner's made him optimistic he could learn to ride the GP13. "If I looked at my riding style and Casey's riding style, how we open the gas, how we brake, stuff like that, obviously he's a second a lap faster most of the time, but it's similar," Crutchlow said. "And as he's the only one who's been able to ride the Ducati, then I'm not scared to maybe take a chance and go there, no.""

MotoGP » Redding unhappy with Crutchlow 'cut-through'

Conrice: No. It doesn't factor in for me. It's racing. It's not politics.
I think we're all predisposed to support people we feel closer to. Everything else being equal, people will tend to support their countryman over another's ... there's nothing wrong or unnatural about that. I think you're right that people are missing out when that's the predominant reason for following a sport, though. You've gotta be able to see past the nationalities and appreciate the fantastic skills that they all have. If you can't do that, you're really missing out (especially if you're not Spanish).

MotoGP » Le Mans Moto3 - Race Results

"Some silly comments in the interview, not giving the team credit." Jack? No way. He game his team and bike heaps of praise. The commentator said it was Honda power versus KTM brakes. Jack was pulling him up on that, saying that he thought he deserved the credit for his braking (which is immense and one of his strengths). Superb race.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

"Ah choo, look Marquez is the real deal but one WC or even 2 does not a make a legend." Marquez has 3 and a 4th on the way. It's not just about the championships ... it's incredible what he does on the bike. Without doubt, he's the best I've seen (and I'm not young and have been watching since the 80s). Again, it's not just that he's smoking everyone ... he's smoked the most competitive grid in history in his rookie year. He's already untouchable and obviously just getting better. Tyre degredation is the only thing stopping Marquez from disappearing in to the distance. He's insanely good. The best.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi to start Yamaha contract talks

"Let's see if JLo has the guts to jump on the bike he says is superior and battle against Marquez " Lorenzo will be slagged off whether he does or not. Agostini, Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo? Unless you've not been watching, there's a young guy out there tearing up the record books racking up the titles with ease. And he's doing it against the strongest field ever assembled. Surely we can now stop the bickering of who's the greatest and enjoy watching him (that's right, Marquez) mature into his prime?
