MotoGP » Valentino Rossi enjoys 'fun' charge, rues slow start


What this shows is that even though he is older than the other guys he is able to pick up the pace and run down and pass another fast guy from over 5 seconds back. Too bad the tires didn't go off sooner. But then again he has always been good when the tires go off. The setup is killing him, hopefully they will get it dialed in. There is still plenty of excitement left in Rossi.

MotoGP » Crutchlow eyed WSBK during rookie season


I think CC is going to do well. He is a good rider, but more importantly Ducati will change. Next year because they have had time to develop a new engine that will have shorter rods, wrist pins closer to the dome, shorter heads and barrels, transmission shafts closer to the crank, etc. Then they will be able to move the engine closer to the front and also lengthen the swing arm. Then we will see a competitive CC. At least I hope so.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez: MotoGP’s best ever rookie?


@TalentFan, I'm surprised at your post. JL did not have to do it on his own, "the wall" went up only after Rossi went to Bridgestone tires and Michelin and BS didn't want to give away secrets. Before that they were sharing info, maybe begrudgingly, but sharing . You usually are better informed. So that being said JL didn't get off to the start MM has, albeit MM does have the most sophisticated race motorcycle ever built, that has taken over for the skill that riders used to have to learn to keep from getting pitched off. He has shown a rare talent when put up against the equal motorcycle of DP. The real secret...he is enjoying himself. Makes a huge difference.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow's Ducati MotoGP deal done


Here is a fact of life in MotoGP: If you do not have a factory ride and only one is available, YOU TAKE IT!!!! Motorcycle racers would all love to be legends, but they also don't want to struggle with money. They MAKE THEIR LIVING doing this. After they can afford to retire, then they can work on being a legend or the "Winning is everything" mentality. Don't forget that the Ducati WILL get better. It can't happen overnight.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow's Ducati MotoGP deal done


Anyone who thinks that this is a mistake is well....sadly mistaken. Those who do, don't realize what it means to be a factory rider and have a sponsor like Marlboro. EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT, from travel, to hotels, to treatment by everyone involved, being waited on hand and foot, to feedback to the factory, not to mention a boatload more money. CC is looking out for himself and his family. He will make enough to retire, that doesn't sound too dumb to me. Then he is free to do as he wishes. Secondly it takes time to design a new bike and Audi did not have the time to design a new engine with a re-engineered center of gravity. They had to submit their design before this season. Next year we should see a redesigned DuAudi that is far more adjustable. Cal did the right thing!! And good for him.

MotoGP » Bradl, Marquez talk Moto2 to MotoGP


@TalentFan, But isn't most racing that use machines from different MFGs that way? Isn't the idea to produce the best machine and win the most races? So the deepest pockets usually comes out on top. Of course the MFGs are going to try to create hurtles that the others have difficulty with. Actually that is part of the fun. Is it unfair? Absolutely! But is it cheating? Absolutely not! Working within the rules and pushing the limits is and always will be the challenge to racing. What is a shame is it is ruining racing for you, I prefer to be an optimist and root for a rider and enjoy a good race, without looking at all the negatives. Life is too short......
