MotoGP » Le Mans: Marquez 'back on it' for pole


@Objective "Marc is scarily fast and is learning quickly. He will continue to improve and I don't think the others will be able to keep up with him by the end of the season." Agree 100%. The one potential issue I can see is injury. His impressive speed has a significant component related to 'the invincibility of youth'. As much as I'm enjoying what that means on the track, it is something that can easily lead to a nasty crash.I'm very much an MM fan now and I hope it doesn't happen but I can't shake the feeling that something nasty isn't far off. Hopefully I'm just being unnecessarily anxious.

MotoGP » Le Mans: ‘Difficult but not impossible’ for third row Rossi


@wowser "He'll be up there battling for that last podium position come the end of the race you haters just watch. " I want to see Rossi do well but I'm not sure how 3rd equates to a good result. There are only 4 competitive factory bikes on the grid and Rossi has one of them. Third ain't saying much. Anything less than competing with his teammate is falling well short of the mark imo

MotoGP » MotoGP Jerez: Pedrosa wins, Marquez bumps Lorenzo!


Cont... "Jorge had only one option, stay on the racing line as a Honda was sweeping across the track." Incorrect. Jorge could have employed the excellent and commonly employed counter to the desperado - wait a moment before turning in, lett him go by on his way to running wide, then cut back and had the drive to the line while Marquez was still trying to drag his bike back online. Instead, either by not having time to react, being too slow to react, or just panicking, Jorge tried to slam the door on someone already in the doorway. "Mark almost took him out a bunch of times before that" I think that is way (continued below)

@billace Usually agree with what you've got to say, but not on this occasion Bill. "Its obvious many of you have never been on a track. This is not a video game! The fact is MM do e underneath, out of control and was going to run off track if JLo wasn't there to knock his bike back on line." If Jorge wasn't there, Marquez would have run wide and still made the corner on a non-optimal line. That's hardly "out of control". I saw Jorge go in too deep on a number of occasions during the race, run wide and still make the corner. Was he out of control?

Cont... "Mark almost took him out a bunch of times before that" I think that is way off. Maquez got caught out a number of times mid-race due to his high mid-corner speed versus Jorge's lack of mid-corner speed. As a result, Mark had to take avoiding action more than once - even though he wasn't even trying to pass. I can't count the number of times I have seen Rossi do exactly that with his superior entry and mid-corner speed, and been surpised by the speed differential in the middle of a corner.

MotoGP » MotoGP Jerez: Pedrosa wins, Marquez bumps Lorenzo!


Well done Pedrosa. Absolutely brilliant from Marquez. Stole Lorenzo's line clean off him. Lorenzo went to drive over a patch of bitumen that Marquez had already gotten to. In the end it was Lorenzo who bumped Marquez by trying to ride over the patch of bitumen Marquez was already on. I like Jorge but, no matter how much he doesn't like it, he was bested on that occasion. All the head-shaking and finger-wagging in the world is not going to change that and it just makes him look a bit of a sook.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: Rossi defensive sixth, 'lost part of a disc'


Lorenzo 2, Rossi 0. When he starts competing with his team mate, that will be the sign he is back to the Rossi of old. Texas was an abysmal showing. Qatar was a nice ride, and had the yellow brigade all a-quiver, but it was a Yamaha track this year and he was still 6 seconds off the other guy on the same bike. I'm hoping we'll see Rossi show some competitiveness for the first time this year when the racing moves to Jerez.
