MotoGP » Pedrosa: ‘I cannot continue racing this way’


Joan Williams: It's a shame if he can't continue because of arm pump.... Another thing, do any of you really understand what arm pump is? The muscles swell up with effort of holding onto the handle bars, but the muscle sheath is not elastic enough to stretch to accommodate the muscle, and so the blood supply gets very restricted causing the hands to go dead. The operation is to cut the muscle sheath to allow more room and to aid the blood supply to get through.
There are multiple reasons for arm pump, including the reason u stated. Arm pump also is a result of being low on potassium. I used to eat a banana every day and a potatoes every day to load up on it. Ive never had arm pump in my life. Honestly. Both versions of arm pump can be addressed and fixed. In Dani's case I think the weight cutting is taking it's toll.

SuperSic: I've always thought that the "jockey" style riders got these arm pump issues due to a lack of muscle mass. This backs up my theory. The guy is a damn fast racer, and has been a credit to Honda for many years now, but i'm surprised he had his contract renewed in 2013, and I think it's his time to move on.
You are 100% correct in your theory. If Dani puts on some weight he'd be fine. But then he'd lose a massive advantage. And he wouldnt perform as good. Bike setup would change a lot. We'd see the "real Dani" so to speak. Honestly, I think he could be just as good. I think he's just taken the weight cutting too far. Typical of hyper competitive athletes.

benignlyindifferent: Really? You guarantee it? And your credentials are? I suspect Dani going public at this time suggests a change in rider for the next race. Unfortunate for him that at 29 he may have to end his MotoGP career.
My credentials are a lifetime in motorsport and having the privilege of competing for World Championships. Knowing health was part of my job.

AmIEviL: @ProfX give it a rest, no one cares about your conspiracy theories and im pretty sure the special Tires Marquez is given(according to you) didn't do him much good today!! On a serious Note I think Van Der Mark would be worth a shot on the Repsol bike while Dani is out,Hondas plan was to promote him to MotoGP eventually.
I dont mind the conspiracy theories. Ive seen worse done by sanctioning bodies. It's definitely not out of the realm of possibilities. And more likely than not. There should be more transparency with the tire allocation. It should be done Thursday nite. The managers draft the tires one tire at a time. Last place in the points gets first pick. Do it till all the tires are grabbed.

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


Im all for laying down astrix's when applicable. This race is not one of those times. So what if MM went off the track. Rossi went from 8th to 1st. And beat a lot of good guys in the process. This is not some 3 horse race where if MM goes off the race win loses it's credit. If u are one of those people splitting hairs on this topic, u really need to ask urself why u even care to watch motorsports. Today was as good as it gets.

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


NigolT: I guess Ducati's early carbon fiber chassis did fail after all. Looks like aluminum is here to stay. Too bad, the carbon fiber chassis using the engine as a stress member sure was a radical idea. Oh well a new era approaches.
The other issue wasnt the Carbon but the companies philosophy of building bikes. Which was independent teams working on parts and the rider having little to no say. It was almost a F1 type approach to building a bike. Which works for a simulator & in theory the bike will be the best on the grid, but it's not practical. Gigi has changed that. Which is a major accomplishment. Italians dont change culturally easy.

MotoGP » Rossi: One of my best ever wins


cokerel:
PR: The stars aligned... MM run out, JL had helmet problem and Dani not that good here (although this time showed great potential before race). It's a great and deserved victory but not quite complete.
Is there no end to the excuses from Lorenzo? He REALLY does not like bashing fairings and is only comfortable when in a commanding position with no other riders nearby.He did what he always does when put under pressure and threw the towel in.
I wouldnt say its fair to say JLo doesnt like to mix it up. He does and has. And his conservative approach to taking what the weekend gives him has done him quite well. It's called being a smart racer. It's won him titles. So u cant really knock it.

The problem with Carbon is that is has no "feel". So without feedback the riders are used too, they dont know where the limit is on the bike until it's too late. The same issue happened when frames went from steel to aluminum. Eventually carbon will be in vogue. It has a greater potential. Ducati was simply way ahead of it's time. But in order for it to really work, they need to start with riders on the material at a young age.

- Kawasaki, KTM & BMW join the fray. Maybe 1 or 2 of those in time. - Multiple Tire Mfgs. Require the same 5 compounds available at every race (super soft, soft, medium, hard, rain) and require that they are all homologated and EVERY team has equal access to whatever compounds they choose (teams have until end of preseason testing to commit to a brand) - Satellite & Customer teams at least start the season off on equal footing to their counterparts. It's BS that even the official satellite teams are down on tech this early. None of those things will happen. So IMO, this is the best of GP racing we will see. So lets enjoy it. Im booking my Mugello tickets this week.
