MotoGP » Rossi: Welkom '04 more special, Marquez 'better than me!'


MM may someday be considered "as good" or "better than" Vale, but his personality is certainly different. I don't mean in a bad way either. There's just only one Vale, and there will never be another. The 125s are gone. The 250s are gone. The 500s are gone. All those post race antics he put on for us! I'll be an old man in a nursing home someday & go on & on & on about this flamboyant Italian who was godlike on 2-wheeled machines that ran on gas and how he fed on the energy his fans heaped upon him! One thing's for sure, the sport needs guys like MM, Vale & J-Lo!!

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Espargaro salutes CRT progress


I'm guessing the Honda "Production Racer" will be similar to the Aprilia ART bikes. Why would anyone buy one? With a leased M1 engine tucked nicely into a Kalex or Suter chassis, one might think they'd stand a much better chance in challenging the 4 Ducati riders at the very least. It almost seems like the big Japanese four, along with Ducati should follow Aprilia's lead by producing bikes just shy of the current prototypes, but also slightly more unique than a BSB spec superbike. I like the ART bikes. They seem like they'd take it to the WSBK bikes fairly well. Anyone?

MotoGP » Caught out in Qatar


I feel bad. Poor kid was given a shot & on his first out, he crashed. So what. Let's at least see if this was a one off in his very first GP race with the biggest stars on 2 wheels. I too think maybe his contract terms were a bit premature, but Herve saw something in this kid, so let's give him a chance.

MotoGP » Moto3 engine crackdown for 2014


When will performance be a priority in these 3 classes? 6 single-cylinder engines for 18 races!? Really? Singles tend to need more attention than multi-cyl, albeit with fewer components to consider. How expensive is it really, when there's so few pieces to design/test? I can understand the cost saving principle in MotoGP, but not in this class.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Lorenzo daunting in the dark


I really respect Jorge's ability and feel he's the current man to beat on the track. Once this seamless gearbox becomes available, he'll become even more likely to run off into the distance. His style is sooooo smooth, this transmission will only compliment him even more so than the fact that the M1 is a corner carving beast. It should also help Vale out, who rides with a similar smoothness. I just hope that all the hoopla surrounding Vale's comeback doesn't ruin their relationship within the team. These guys have got it all sewn up nicely. Go Yamaha!
