MotoGP » Laverty slams ‘tow-trucks’ after ‘disastrous’ qualifying


A bike following him wont make him go faster, unless your at some very fast tracks. Where there at high speed longer that a second or two.

MachSpeed: Towing also helps the rider in the front, less than the one being towed, but overall they both go faster. Might as well give somebody a tow.
we are not in nascar were they stay at high for a long time were the tow (ie slip stream) helps both. also the word tow in this instance doesn't mean slipstream, it means you use the other rider in front as a maker that helps you with your lines and braking etc, its easier to follow someone that way

MotoGP » Lorenzo matches Stoner’s MotoGP wins


TwistedWrist29: People here trying to speculate how Marc is going to be topping all the records...you cant foresee the future people!!! That's what people thought of Freddie Spencer and he didn't go into the levels held by Stoner, Rossi, or Jorge. Jorge's stats and crushing speed clearly make him one of the greats in the sport and he is not even done yet. Stoner was great, but Jorge will achieve more. That simply makes him greater. When Marc has the records, then you can boast. Its racing, not fortune telling.
Spencer may not have as many race wins as stoner but he won more world titles, sadly burnt himself out winning 2 titles in 1 year, he was never the same after that year sadly.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith signs Tech 3 deal


Don-R:
Tomco: And none of the knowitalls have come up with one serious suggestion of who could do better than BS on the Yamaha Tech3.
Well Yamaha thought they'd come up with one: Alex Rins. Smith's place was reportedly offered to Rins no less than 3 times over the summer break, so we might say that that #38 is fortunate that Rins declined, preferring to stay in Moto2 for a title challenge first. This time next year, however, I'd expect to see that move take place, hence the 1-yr-only extension for Smith. None of this is to discredit the job BS is doing on the Tech 3, but it's doubtful he figures in any of Yamaha's longer term plans.
if it was Yamaha offering the tech 3 ride to rins, then it was pols ride up for grabs not smiths i'd say. the 1 year deal just means it puts him and a few others(pol being another one) in line with the works teams and not a reflection on smith

MotoGP » Zarco: Not many opportunities for MotoGP


Realist:
eadgbe:
Realist: Rins is wishy washy. Rabat is wishy washy. Zarco doesn't seem 100% convinced he wants to make the jump either, and even Kent hasn't decided yet. Teams don't have time to sit around and wait. ..and only 1 M3 rider has made the jump, so it's not like it's a trend........yet!
I agree that there's a strange reluctance to move up to motogp by the likes of Rabat, but it sounds to me like Zarco hasn't been considered for the Pramac ride or similar which I'm astounded by. What else does he have to do? If he has been offered it but turned it down in a fit of french pique, then I take all this back!
Zarco got a Pramac offer, but he's being reluctant.
every man and his dog has a Pramac offer lol means little
