MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


Kinda some truth in that Marc winning the title the first time out was more astounding than his successfully defending it. I say this as a genuine fan of 93, but think, without Vale, has any other rider put together back to back titles on a team other than Repsol? In recent history, I can't come up with one. This only demonstrates how truly awesome HRC/Repsol is at development of racing bikes, as well as how truly amazing Vale is. A run of 5, 3 with HRC factory, then 2 different back-to-backs with Yamaha. Gaps in between for Yamaha make it even more incredible! If the M1 shows proper competitiveness with the RC this next season from the get go, I can see Vale further cementing his already stellar rep, by beating his team mate in the standings and hounding the latest young stars. The GOAT is Vale, no doubt about it.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden: Turning the page


Edited my prior post, as I kinda contradicted myself a bit. Lol. My ultimate opinion is that HRC screwed my countryman Nick. Ever since then, I've been a Yamaha fan. Also, Marc will never gain more respect than Vale by keeping with the Daddy Warbucks Repsol/HRC, with their puppet strings pulling on the regs. Just my honest opinion. Also, sick of that damn Repsol paint scheme, decade after decade. Loved the Go!! M1, Camel M1, FIAT M1 & now Movistar. How's about a white/ghost Repsol like you sometimes see on the CBR600RR?

MotoGP » Suzuki will consider expanding MotoGP effort


Factories should each have a single-rider "Factory" team, supported by 2 separate single-rider "satellite" teams. 3 machines per manufacturer. Big $ spent of the factory effort & reasonable lease rates on satellite machines with steady trickle-down development parts. Would reduce the cost of running for the satellite teams. What do we have coming up in '15, 5 manufacturers? That would be 15 bikes. If we get BMW, KTM & bring Kawasaki back, that would be 24 bikes & none of these "OPEN" class grid fillers. All prototype machinery. Just a wild idea.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


There is a lot of truth in stating that MM isn't competing against the whole field. He's racing against 3 riders at best. Taking into consideration HRCs development budget and pull with the rule making body, it HAS to diminish Marc's accomplishment a smidge. No doubt he's got Dani's #, being on the same spec RC, and Vale's # in youthful exuberance + machine. I rate Jorge above Dani, given his 2 titles, and only Jorge's youth giving him the edge over Vale. Looking at all this, who is Marc really racing/beating? Ditch "Factory" teams & let the results attract sponsors & endorsements for the riders. All bikes of the same make should be EQUAL. How can anyone on a satellite win, let alone an OPEN machine. Things have improved only slightly over last year with the impossibly incompetent CRT machines. Bring on 2016 FFS!!
