MotoGP » Stoner snatches Valencia victory from Spies

Poor Spies! He rode a superb race, he must be gutted! Though I'm not a great fan of his, he has to be the man of the race! What happened to Stoner and Pedrosa though? I was expecting to be posting a congrats to at least one of them - then Casey loses 10 seconds in three laps! The power may have got him the win, but he really can't be happy with those last few laps! And Pedrosa? Keeps the factory ride from Dovi and is then beaten by the bike customer team Dovi is going to? Someone at HRC can't be happy!

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP - Saturday practice

@asefi Err... No, I was not comparing anyone to anyone - or are you referring to where I was complimenting Casey on his handling of the Duke? or is that the bit that you find confusing - someone who doesn't need to hate other riders to support someone? I was listing some of the achievements of Rossi. Kind of to disprove the whole 'just hype' insinuation that was floated by it's obvious. Or of course... 'Rossi haters are known best for their confusion tactics and trying to ignore history' Oh, and before you accuse me of me of ignoring current affairs I think I covered how good I class Casey in my last post... Well good night all, play nice...

@its obvious No, no. I see your point... He was just so lucky to have won more than 100 races and 7 championships, and has always been a complete fraud. He didn't take a bike that had not won a championship since the early nineties and win in his first season (with lots of off season testing). He didn't win all but one of the 990 era championships. He didn't win as many 800cc championships as Casey and he wasn't untouchable on the Honda as Casey is now. He wasn't untouchable by Jorge until he screwed his 2010 season up by doing major damage to his shoulder and leg (check the stats he won the only race where he wasn't injured in 2010) He did none of those things did he? Hater much? At least I can say how amazing and impressive Casey is (for that mater anyone who climbs on board on of these things) - why do you have to just attack?

@its obvious You're right it's obvious. Rossi is trying to make the bike work, and trying to figure out the problems with JB and the engineers. When he went to Yam he had unlimited testing with the engineers to sort the bike out. With the Duke he has has had almost none. He is not riding the bike to overcome it's problems at whatever cost, he is trying to iron those out. I would guess that at the end of the first year they are only half way through the off season testing that he had when he moved to Yam. And yes everyone knows that Stoner could ride the beast by doing exactly that - riding past the problems and hoping for the best. And he did it damn well! And some of the time it worked. And some of the time he was thrown into the gravel at almost before the filaments in the starting lights had cooled. At least that's my take.

MotoGP » Stoner dominates day one down under

Stoner is a damn fast rider that's for sure (just not my favortie :P). As for not making the racing exciting - what's he supposed to do about that? Stop and wait? It's for the others to take it to him. I'm a Rossi fan and I don't remember anyone complaining about him dissapearing into the distance (OK his starts always sucked and he had a fight before doing that...) Personally I have more of an issue with how hard it is to pass these days, and riders complaining about harsh move (esp Stoner as he tries to punt others off the circuit when he goes past, then complains when people make tough moves on him). You used to be able to manhandle the bikes around the track and take your own line into the corners, but nowdays all the bikes need the same line making overtaking far more difficult than it used to be 10 years ago.

MotoGP » Rossi: A difficult circuit

Err... Moaning??? He said that they had made a little progress last race (which you can see by how close he was to everyone but Stoner) and was waiting to see if it carried over to the Indy circuit, said he doesn't like the track much (which he also said when riding the Yam) but loves racing in America. And then paid tribute to someone that died tragically young. Where was the moaning?:?
