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 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.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Three very demanding weeks

The truly amazing thing is that he's able to contend for podiums with the young prodigy, as well as the the other 2 Spanish aliens, after all these years. Sure, others have won races at later stages of their careers, but Vale has been a podium contender and race winner for almost 17 years running (bar Ducati). I also did some research and discovered that Ago had won some of his races by lapping riders sometimes more than once during those races!! It seems that his machinery's performance potential was miles above the others back then. No disrespect to him, but Vale, as well as all the current crop, have to deal with machines that are not exactly equal in terms of performance, but much closer than they were back in the 60's. Vale IS the greatest IMHO & if Marc wants to usurp him, he's got a very long stretch of track ahead of him. I'll def enjoy watching him go for it! Kinda wish Casey was still here........
