MotoGP » Rossi takes top spot with Pedrosa in Malaysia


ProfessorX: Sorry TedG, it has to do with the new bike and the new tires, thats about it. if you think he is just now getting to speed because his crew chief knows how to look at data you are sorely mistaken. Yamaha have been rocking the TC hard since 2008. You can thank Bridgestone for Rossi's new performance, and hes complaining about the tires because he wants people to think hes in the same boat as Lorenzo, and hes not :)
I don't agree about the data, BUT I absolutely agree about the tires. Anyone who has watched Rossi from the days of the 500s knows that he knows how to ride a bike with a "loose" rear wheel. Just a matter of getting used to it again.

MotoGP » Brazil GP dropped from 2014 MotoGP calendar


As far as Laguna being dropped, I hate to say it because I have never missed a GP there and have raced there before there was an infield. But that facility is the most poorly run of any. The parking is a joke, motorcycle parking so bad that last year 8 people fell(while I was parking my bike) off their bikes because the entrance was so steep, off camber and slippery. Then they parked you in silt so deep that dozens of bikes fell over even with a kick stand pad, trudging up very steep silt ridden hills equipped with snake holes and all, no real place to take a load off your feet, you spend the next 4 days removing stickers from whatever you were wearing. Horrible loud speaker coverage, no decent place to watch the race. The Montery police and sheriff have a heyday with anyone who rides a bike. Not to mention the CHP giving out tickets to anyone entering for 3mph over the speed limit. The track is the best to watch, but the rest is horrible and I can see the reasoning for dropping it. P

MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans


First of all this is Dorna's plan to make the CRTs more competitive gone bad. They thought that the CRTs with more fuel would have a fighting chance. Honda just stepped up the game like usual. As for them pulling out, just look at history, they went flat tracking and built a bike that just worked. And had riders that were up to the task. Then Harley complained that they couldn't keep up and wanted the Hondas restricted. When the Harley cronies (A.K.A. AMA) agreed, Honda told them that if they were to be restricted they would pull the plug. The Harley cronies didn't back down and Honda pulled the plug. No drama, they quietly loaded up their bikes and waved their middle finger at the AMA. And the sport would never be the same. Harley killed the British with their insistence on over taxing imports and suddenly there was no competition. It became a Harley fest and the sport all but died.
