MotoGP » Rossi targets podium on Yamaha MotoGP return


Aside from the mountain he faced when he arrived at Ducati, this will be Vale's greatest challenge thus far. I'd be ecstatic if he podiums, even more so if he garners the #2 spot! A win would see me with a feeling I'd expect to be similar to when he won that race in Welkom '04. I've been a die hard fan for years, but have grown to respect ALL riders simply because of the ridiculous hatred spewed about this site from armchair experts. No TRUE FAN of this sport tosses around such utter disdain for these brave souls. Men who RISK THEIR LIVES so we can place ourselves in their skin for those brief moments of glory, wondering how great it must be to be live your fantasy. Sadness is all I feel right now.......sorry.........

MotoGP » Lorenzo expects four contenders for MotoGP 2013


The pleasantries were nice while they lasted. Jorge is a valiant champion who has always shown respect for his competition. Dani is equally humble, if not too much so. Vale has had more than the lion's share of plaudits, which may explain his antics & cockiness in the past. Now he's been shown to be just a man who wants to see if he's able to take it to his more youthful challengers. I really hope he and Jorge maintain a kind demeanor and prove themselves to be one of the best teams ever to ride 2 wheels. With 13 titles between them, I expect it soon to be 14! Go Yamaha!

MotoGP » Hayden: Not ideal, but we've made progress


I'm American, and thus, a Nicky fan, but I do feel like his time is limited. He's on a 1 year contract & it's either a HRC Production Racer or perhaps a CRT framed/M1-engined machine for when his factory seat ride runs it's course. I'd like to see him in GP for another couple of years in some form or another, then SBK would be a cool option. I'm not positive, but maybe he'd make more money if he returned to the AMA. I think it used to be more lucrative for top riders over here. Not too sure after DMG took over. Anyone else know about this?

MotoGP » Moto3 2013: Preview


I loved watching this class last year!! I had a Kawi KLX250SF, which is more of a wannabe supermotard, but I loved wringing its neck and how well it flicked into corners! I especially like how these bikes sound & watching the drafting on the longer straights. Hope Fahmi gets his 1st win soon! He's a good kid & came soooo close at his home race!

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'a little nervous' as Qatar looms


They're all feeling anxious ahead of the opener. If JL has anything extra to be concerned about, it's not just Vale. He's got the strongest DP in recent years on a bike that seems to have a slight edge, if ever so small. MM is a huge unknown and 6 years younger. MM is only going to become more of a pain in the a$$ for everyone. If JL becomes champ this year, it'll push him above CS in terms of GP prowess, simply because he'll have beaten Vale 2x on equal machinery, as well as beating Dani 2x while on slightly lesser machinery. CSs title on the '11 RCV was a given, considering his transition from the defunct Duc to the well rounded RCV. Still, as of now, my order of greatness currently sits as Vale, JL & CS dead even, then Dani. Nicky would be top privateer if he were on an M1 or RCV. Not an attack on anyone. Just my opinion, which everyone is entitled to.
