MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Valentino Rossi lights up practice

This bodes nicely for Vale, given he's not traditionally a hot-lapper, pole setter or fast starter. He's usually good for a position or two further up come race day. Has anyone confirmed from the practice video that Jorge & Cal used a newly mounted soft tire to put in their final laps? If they did, Vale must be even more confident in his result. Go Yamaha!!

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Flying Crutchlow splits Lorenzo, Rossi

There's no doubt that Cal is fast, and it seems like now, at the start of the season, the satellite bike is close in performance to the factory. This won't be the case come summer though. Plus, one can see that even though he's split Jorge & vale by the very slightest of measurable margins, he's clearly on the brink of crashing, with the bike flailing about beneath him. Jorge & Vale appeared to be testing the limits in a more methodical manner, never looking like they'd yet found it. I like Cal quite a bit, but am afraid it's probably true that he's on the best bike he'll be getting.

MotoGP » Qatar MotoGP: Ben Spies still one of the fastest - Lorenzo

sometimes I wish he's have either stayed in the USA, or maybe even WSBK. He'd already beaten the best in Mladin & decimated the world stage in '09. Not that anyone has forgotten these accomplishments. Sometimes a great SBK rider is only a great SBK rider. Although, In recent times Bayliss, Hayden & Spies are the only ones I recall winning on SBKs, then on a GP bike. Biaggi did it the other way around, which only makes sense if you think about it. Anyways, I hope Ben's shoulder has time to heal, and does not suffer an unexpected off, as the Duc is known to suffer it's pilots on occasion.

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?
