MotoGP » Puig reacts to Schwantz’s Pedrosa comments


When is Dani's contract up? If Marc finishes ahead of Dani, he may still have one or two more years left on the squad. HRC know they have the future with Marc & Dani will start to be phased over to their clear #2 rider. However, there is a benefit to a team mate who is capable of beating the other teams competition, but not the teams #1. The manufacturers & team championships are also something HRC desire.

MotoGP » Puig reacts to Schwantz’s Pedrosa comments


8 years on a factory bike is a long time indeed, but look at the number of podiums and wins. His numbers far surpass Nicky's. Don't get me wrong, as I'm American & always root for Nick, Colin & Ben. It's also true that a title is something much easier to remember, but I won't ever forget how good a rider Dani is, and that's all that I personally care about. Also, I'd like to see what he could do on another make. He's a decent guy & hope to watch him for many years to come.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: CRT tyre debut 'overwhelmingly positive'


Thanks Coffee. The article also mentioned the possibility of the inclusion of a chassis. With an M1 engine and a decent chassis, these bikes may prove to be more capable than the budget-based engine in the HRC Production Racer, no? At any rate, next season looks to be as exciting as this years, given riders like Pol & Redding may be here! I wonder what will happen with Nicky next year.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Everything came together for Marquez


Lorenzo is prob the smartest rider in the field. Knowing when to push & when to know your betters is crucial over a long season. People tend to remember Championship Winners before than they can recall each individual race result. Nicky, for example, may have only ever won a few races, but he's got one thing that multi-race winner Dani hasn't got BTW, I would like nothing more than to see him do it!!

Jorge is so mentally strong, that being his edge over his fellow countrymen. I love Vale, but the youth & skill of his 3 Spanish counterparts will be very hard to deal with. Him being 14 years Marc's senior. He should not be at all ashamed of finishing behind him or Jorge. His bare minimum should be 4th. Anything less should be considered failure.

MotoGP » Ben Spies to miss Spanish MotoGP


I think he may miss racing back home in the USA. He's clearly stated he doesn't enjoy flying, preferring to travel by RV. Sure, the $ in GP is much greater, but I think he'd do ok back here as well. I don't know for sure, but I've heard European SBK doesn't pay unless your at the tip-top & the AMA can be profitable for the little guy even. I miss watchin the AMA with Matt, Ben, Miguel, E-Boz & B-Boz, the Haydens and Yates, even though Aaron scuttled the championship for Eric @ Laguna many years ago. Ahhh, Memories!!

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: CRT tyre debut 'overwhelmingly positive'


With Yamaha supplying engines, Honda introducing their Production Racer and Suzuki poised for a return, will there really be CRTs? It's doubtful anyone will be able to "claim" an M1 engine. I hope this all comes to pass. CRT was a nice experiment for Esp & RDP, but the others performed much farther from the prototypes. Aprilia should up it a bit & try to be there FOR REAL when Suzi comes back. 4 prototypes per manufacturer, including Aprilia and Suzi would equal 20 bikes. Add 4 HRC Prod. Racers & 2 Yamaha M1 engine leases would bring the field up to 26!!! One can dream I suppose.

I like Vale for his youthful exuberance and hunger, even after all these years. Jorge for his raw ability. consistency and focus. Dani is prob the most well mannered in the paddock with hardly a complaint from him. He just gets up dust himself off & gets on with it. Marc seems like he's got a little bit of all of these traits, which could make him the perfect racer. Only time will tell.
