MotoGP » Simoncelli summoned to Race Direction


The most noticeable change after the switch to 4-stroke was the missing close fights. It might be because of the heavy bike that can not be maneuvered as easily as it's 2-stroke counterparts. With 4-stroke, you have to flow with the bike and wrestle it as little as possible, while with the 2-stroke, you can flick it in anyway you want it, even in mid corner. I think that particular characteristic is the one that force 4-stroke riders to plan their racing lines more carefully and way further back from the actual corner. And if something unplanned happens mid corner, all they can do is just brace themselves and pray.

MotoGP » Randy Mamola talks Simoncelli, Pedrosa clash


I think there are several reasons why this incident and the penalty became so overrated. 1. JL talked about Simmo aggressiveness few weeks prior to the incident. This made it the "Told ya" incident. 2. The injury it caused Pedrosa and his ruined chance. All when people see Pedrosa is getting better and better on the new Honda after 2010. Actually Pedrosa had a good chance in wining the WC compared to previous seasons. 3. Puig, Ezpeleta, Pedrosa and Lorenzo are Spanish. I believe, it must have had something to do with the penalty decision. 4. Many people say that the penalty was too harsh because they hate to see Valentino on the podium, when he supposedly suffer on the bike that Stoner won on. They simply don't like to see him and his fans happy (afterwards, they still tried to slag Rossi with "gifted podium" gimmick). On lesser level 5. Lorenzo haters don't like the advantage it gives him. 6. Spies fans who don't like that Simmo is doing better than BS. 7. Stoner's fans who wa

MotoGP » Rossi and Ducati: Four rounds in


You guys know I'm a Rossi fan, but this is just pointless. I'm just wondering, if Crash itself started this discussion, would it be considered as trolling? I don't see the significance of the comparison. In the end, people will only see who comes up on top at the end of the season, period. Who cares if Agostini was the only rider with a 3 cylinders bike? He holds the record, period. Who cares if Doohan had no competitors? He's 5 times WC, period. I guess, the only reason Crash does this comparison is because it's the only thing we can speak about Rossi's performance this season (akin to Stoner's fans clinging to "winingest 800 rider" routine). The fact is, Rossi has no hope in wining the championship this year (I really hope I'm wrong).

MotoGP » Button: F1 drivers are crazy, MotoGP riders are nutcases!


It is just pointless to compare these sports of different era. In the past, riders like King Kenny and Johnny Cecotto would race Grand Prix in a weekend and in the next weekend, they would race on a dirtbike (watch On Any Sunday). And in Cecotto's case, he'd drive an F1 car the next weekend. Some amateur riders/racers even have a same bike for the road and off road races. with just some minor adjustments and parts. But the sports have been so specialized today, that a rookie from Moto2 needs a whole season just to adjust themselves to the MotoGP, let alone an F1 driver.
