MotoGP » Rossi: A difficult circuit


BillAce, please read posts carefully, because you seemed to have already made up your mind before you actually read them, therefore, you confuse a lot of things. I never said there's nothing wrong or doesn't count. As a matter of fact, there's something terribly wrong if a team with the size Honda couldn't come up with a decent bike since 2007. Their significant improvement just started second half of last year season. I never said that Stoner was handed a well sorted bike, as I myself don't believe that (no rider could do $#17 on that bike before Stoner). I merely said that Stoner 10 wins were won on the non CF Duke. A rider rides slower than its regular rider for the first time on a notoriously difficult bike is not totally unexpected. i did say Rossi rides the Duke without planning to cross its limit. That is within the bike's limit to me.

MotoGP » Rossi: A difficult circuit


Honda riders were mostly spent their time on the gravel in the first half of last year season. And when they got the bike sorted out, Pedrosa broke his collar bone. Hardly a yard stick you want to use to measure a rider with. Regarding Rossi rides within the bike's limit, didn't I say that? But regarding his fire is no longer there. Let's just agree to disagree. Just let the time prove it.

A side note: Stoner might be the winningest rider on the 800 era (on the notorious Ducati). But he won big chunk of it on the conventional frame. He won 10 times in 2007 alone. the other wins are spread in the next 3 years. Ever since Ducati switch to CF, Stoner's position in the championship had been spiraling down.

@BillAce "To think you can recommend parts and magic will happen so you don't have to push the bike outside of your comfort zone is ridiculous." I think, it is simply is not Rossi's plan to fall as many times as Stoner. "The 3 aliens are pushing the bikes they are on every corner..." To suggest that Rossi is not doing the same would be absurd. Saying the Duke is a winning bike is like showing half a picture. Sure Stoner on the Duke could win more than any rider, but then, it's because he rode it right on the limit (so he often crossed it and binned it too many times). For the fan who likes this kind or rider, of course Stoner would be the perfect idol. But I myself like consistent riders, not the winningest rider, because it wins championship. Remember Hayden? He might won just a couple of races in 2006, but staying up when everybody's falling down is sure count to something. And to me, his championship never mean any less.

MotoGP » Rossi: A difficult circuit


IMHO the only mistake Rossi and Burgess made is just their decision to play along with Ducati and keep the CF. It might be caused by two things. 1. They didn't have any previous experience with any CF (come to think of it, nobody has ever truly mastered CF so far), and mistakenly thought that it was just a setting problem rather than a more complex problem. And fine tuning the bike will be much easier and faster than building the bike from scratch. 2. Their over convidence or you may say arrogance that they can turn the Duke into a winning bike, regardless the frame it uses. But hey, with a track record like theirs, who can blame them? I just hope that Ducati will come to their senses and ditch the CF. Maybe build a frame with more or less similar geometry with Yamaha. I think Burgess can easily do that, after all, he's the one who set up Yamaha into the WC winning bike.

At the risk of stating the obvious, here's what happened: 1. Rossi and Burgess didn't have any experience with CF. Evident by JB's statement regarding 80 seconds fix. 2. Turned out that CF is extremely difficult to fix, or even set up. Halfway to the season and only minors (if at all) improvements. 3. Stoner has the exceptional skill of riding the Duke. I bet you can not name a rider who can ride it. 4. Rossi hasn't lost it. In every race, he still maintain his discipline, effort and spirit. The only thing is missing (should be obvious to anybody) is his speed, which, (again obviously) caused by the bike. When the bike is fixed, I have no doubt that Rossi will be up front with the front runners.

@the real Ty46. Don't worry, the admin can see ur email address and delete the post from the later Ty46. It happened to me several times before I register. So please register. Regarding Elias, I still believe that it's just his luck. I remember him doing well (even better than Dovi) pre 09. If he's not good enough for MotoGP while he can dominate Moto2, then I'm worrie if the current crop of Moto2 riders will do the same when they're upgraded.

MotoGP » Rossi heads for first Silverstone race


@A1, John made a very good example by bringing up Ago's name. All we know about Ago is that he holds the winning records that has not been broken by anybody yet. Does anybody know what a tw@t he was? Obviously, numbers are more important than anything. That is what these young generation riders should concentrate in breaking before even to be compared to Ago or Rossi. In the future, people will only see: Rossi 7 WCs Lorenzo 3 or 4 WCs Stoner 3 or 4 WCs

MotoGP » 2011 MotoGP World Championship standings


Some might say the race is boring. But in my opinion, it is a quite close racing. While there's almost no overtaking in the race and Stoner apparent outright dominance, but the top 5 finishers are still within an eye sight. Compare this with 2009 or 2010 races, where the first place finisher were twenty something seconds in front of the 5th or 4th place rider.
