MotoGP » Nicky Hayden keen to sample GP11.1

Incredible really, there is a statement that he is a class human being and yet people see that as a negative! For armchair pundits to say that he is no good is laughable, team owners and managers don't give bikes to people just because they are good guys. They also don't keep hime there just because he does not slag anyone off. Actually he does, he criticises Nicky Hayden quite often. I have no doubt that he has all the attitude he needs on the bike, he is a proven winner and like it or not he has that world title. He did the business all his life in the USA and has proven his worth to the people that count on the world stage. The fact that he has held that title and did so with class and decorum, in spite of Pedrosa's best efforts, make him a more rounded champion than some others that could be mentioned.

MotoGP » Edwards takes tenth for the team, Crutchlow 'learns'

I just don't get why there are comments about JT and Bradley Smith in here. Is it just because they are Brits as well? If so then the jingoistic flag waving is nauseous. People slagged off Karel Abraham because of his Dad's money yet here he is in his rookie season putting in solid performances on a bike that is much harder to ride than the Yamaha and he does so without quitting, or complaining. I hope that come the end of the season that Abaja will be the one picking up the rookie of the year award as he is showing a whole lot more class as a rider and a person. Sure I like to see home grown talent do well but not just because they are Brits, they need to be good too.

MotoGP » Stoner, Abraham argue at Mugello test

Here we go again - Abraham is only here because of his Dad. That is complete and utter rot. It may be funded by his old mans company but he still has to ride it and he is showing all the ignorant ******* this season that ride it he can. Stoner would not be in Moto GP if his parents had not sacrificed everything financially to get him through racing. Vale came from a privileged background where his family connections definitely opened doors. There are precious few riders whose family come from a sink hole council estate and can't make ends meet. Abraham tested the Ducati last year and the factory saw what he could do. His telemetry showed how well he can ride the bike and that is why they agreed to let Cardion AB have their bike. Of course they had to pay for it but Abaja is deservedly there and he has already shown this season that his place is merited.

MotoGP » Crutchlow defends pull-in decision

Sorry but if you take the pay check then you do the job. I understand that Cal did not want to injure himself and do not wish him to do so. I do believe however he could have knocked it back a bit and still stayed on the race track. I am pretty sure he would have not finished last and thus picked up a couple of points. There are a lot of people who put a shed load of effort in to getting these guys on the grid, in effort, time and money. If he thought he could not do the job then he should have had the nerve to say so in advance, rather than come back too soon and a stand in rider, desperate for a chance, could have been out on the bike.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: Simoncelli's head has nothing but hair

Oh Dani, Dani, Dani. Looks like you have also learned the art of whinging from the ego maniac that is your manager. You are a talented wee fella, no doubt but perhaps the Napoleon complex, as is so common in those of short stature, is getting hold of you. Not much stinks worse than the foul smell of hypocrisy and as is so often mentioned you seem to have forgotten when you took out Nicky Hayden. You really need to think long hard about trying to get into a slanging match with Marco S as you do not appear to have the character to be smart witted enough. Do you what you sometimes do well and just ride the bike, get over what happened and drop the "Cheese and Whine Party" routine.

MotoGP » Stoner: Motivation difficult for Pedrosa

I fully sympathise with Pedrosa's situation. If however he is having trouble with motivation to get back out and do what millions of people around the world can only dream about having the chance of trying once, then it is time he gave the whole game up. I am no great fan of Dani's, though at the same time I wish him no ill. In this instance however I hope Stoner is talking absolute rubbish as I would hate to think that their are highly paid Moto GP riders who have lost site of what it actually is that they get to do with their lives.
