MotoGP » Tough defeat for Lorenzo to swallow


Saying one rider is better than another is entirely too subjective when speaking of Champions. When all the current crop are sitting on the porch, talking about the good 'ol days, Vale will be the one with the biggest grin. As Always. Also, anyone saying Jorge is not a great rider doesn't really enjoy racing. Their only reason for being is to fling monkey poo and to upset someone on the other end of the world that they'll never meet. LOL!!! All these guys are extremely fast & brave.

MotoGP » Tough defeat for Lorenzo to swallow


The Honda is clearly further up the development curve when considering the 2 machines. The M1 is a little down on HP, as well as having a seemingly less durable engine. Yamaha will have to had tone down the output with the hopes lasting the season without starting from last position/pit road exit. Also, HRC was the manufacturer pushing for tighter limits on fuel/engines. I'm glad Jorge denied any regret about not going to HRC in the post race conference. He's a company man, and a proud man. The only reason Vale made his moves was to test his mettle and earn the proper respect for his ability. Money was not the hinge pin for him as he'd already made more than any other rider in the history of the sport. C'mon Yamaha!!! Don't let your guys down!!!

MotoGP » Qualifying blow for 'competitive' Rossi


How about this: Qualifying by a single rider on track making a sighting/warm-up lap, followed by 2 fast laps. When the rider on track begins his 2nd fast lap, a new rider begins a sighting/warm-up lap. I really don't know how qualifying could be improved to make everyone happy, but guys like Barbara have earned reputations by impersonating a pillion, just as Bautista has done in this QP. BTW, old format or new, Vale is not a qualifier, he's a racer!

MotoGP » Double shoulder surgery for Ben Spies


This is so unfortunate to see. I was just reading about Ben on Wikipedia and had forgotten some of his massive accomplishments, beating Matt Mladin twice and winning the AMA SBK title 3 consecutive years being at the top of the list. If that wasn't impressive enough, we all remember WSBK in '09. Come home to the good old USA Ben and enjoy racing again......next year that is.

MotoGP » PIC: Valentino Rossi celebrates first grand prix win


My buddy got me into sport bikes back in 2001. It was perfect timing for me to witness almost all of Vale's premiere class career. When he does decide to hang 'em up, I'll be a bit distraught. Although, the arrival of MM will fill the deficit....almost! Lol! Jorge must be thinking, "Man, I'm glad I was able to grab 2 titles before this kid came along!" Dani is either a robot for real, or he's one of the best actors I've seen. He now knows a title is unlikely, but keeps with the brave face. I hope everyone leaves Brno with no new injuries.

MotoGP » Dominant Marquez pulls clear with US hat-trick


This kid is something else! His explanation of why he thinks the track is fine, being flat and with 3 different types of asphalt, was spot on! Dani & Jorge could only concur by saying, "same". Vale's charge was something I was crossing my fingers for, and couldn't have been timed better. Overall, I really, really enjoyed this GP.
