MotoGP » Pedrosa pole in incident-packed Indy qualifying

I am sorry but that comment about the alleged smile of one of the Yamahe pit crew at Casey's crash is just crass. How on earth anyone can have any idea what the guy was looking at or what he was talking about to someone or anything else at the time of the crash is impossible to tell. I do not believe any of the people in the paddock from any team would take any joy, on any level, of any rider crashing. It is beyond me why people take the time to bother airing such meaningless and completely unsubstantial views.

MotoGP » Can MotoGP ever crack the USA?

So shamarone what you are saying is that our American friends like excitement and the rest of us put up with dull pastimes? Certainly comes across that way and if that is the case then they are the smart ones. Some of the anti American statements on here are just pure drivel and embarrassing. I can only assume they are made by people who have never been there let alone lived in it for a while to experience it. Americans are, in the main, no different to everyone else on the planet and given the amount of stupid, stereo-typical vitriol written on here it says more, perhaps about us in Europe than it does about them.

MotoGP » Can MotoGP ever crack the USA?

cmpunk (is that not one of those of funny wrestling type people ?) The guy never said that AMA is bigger than MotoGP, he said it is bigger in the USA than MotoGP. I don't think his statement is unreasonable or wrong. As much as I hate football it would however be fair to say that in say Germany its domestic league is bigger (more popular) than say Serie A in Italy or the Spanish league but that does not mean that most players there would still aspire to play for Barcelona, Madrid, Inter, Juventus etc. So the reason that Nicky, Ben and Colin are in Moto GP is because it is still the blue ribbon class in the motorcycling road race world and the one to which more or less all riders aspire.

MotoGP » Injured Abraham ruled out of Italian Grand Prix

It's not just a case of saying that they want rider A.B or C to take the seat and then all is tickety boo. Any replacement has to be approved by Ducati, the FIM and the other teams. There is not much time left to get this all done. Battaini is a Ducati test rider and with a test scheduled for after the race then the factory can not run the risk of him not being available. I would love to see Troy Bayliss on the Cardion AB bike but I can also think of any number of reasons why that could not happen. Only two days from the team announcement to the start of the event weekend, plus other teams may not be too happy as there is a fair to middling chance that Troy could get on that thing and score some points, thus taking them away from some other regulars who will need them more come the end of the season. It's not just that simple to get someone on a bike at short notice.and as for the comments about Bataini being a joke, well the guy can ride a Moto GP bike, gets paid to do it and a fac

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still the highest paid MotoGP rider

OK OK - in my post I typed faster than my mind was working and I should have said nous - not nonce. The latter being a slang term for a sex offender, or so I am told. Then again even they know that Valentino Rossi, love him or loathe him, is the biggest draw in Moto GP. The only character we had with anything like the charisma or understanding that paying public appreciate something back, as Valentino does, we sadly lost last year. Once Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi leave the paddock a whole lot of the personal touch and fun are going to go with them.
