MotoGP » Second wrist surgery for Nicky Hayden


JasonLewis: Injured with 2 DNS's and still only 4 points back from so called "superstar" Redding. Get healthy Nick and put little Scotty back in his place. Despite the hate, I know damn well you're the superior rider.
I read the messages before yours and couldn't find the hate you mentioned...maybe on another thread/forum? I do see a lot of animosity for Scott Redding on here though.....Scott is an up and coming rider, learning the ropes and doing a great job. That doesn't take anything at all away from Nicky, who is an ex world champion at this level and has proven year on year that he has the skills/determination etc. to ride at the very top. Why not direct your anger at Honda, who have stitched up a number of top riders in recent years and the championship to a greater extent

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista


I am a fan of both SR and NH and actually think they're quite similar in a lot of respects i.e. quietly get on with the job, work hard, are consistent and are always aggressive on the track. Unfortunately, Bautista's bike might well be a poison chalice without Ohlins and a few bhp down on the works bikes i.e. unless you're an alien in the waiting I don't see how you can break the top 3 as it currently stands.

MotoGP » Redding waiting for 2015 decision


He actually said the medium front wasn't available, so not sure if it was a mistake or supply issue? He's quietly going about his business on the 2nd rate Honda. Hayden is the only other rider getting results on this bike and I'd rate him (Nicky) above a lot of the satellite riders. Who's riding for Suzuki next year, would like to see one of these get a ride.

MotoGP » Pacesetter Espargaro sweet on new FTR frame


mrfill: By the way people are going on you'd think he was the only rider allowed to use the soft tyre. Newsflash: All the open class bikes can use the soft tyre (and probably did) and that is over half the field. @noriben Understand about the reservation. He's been punching above his weight for a while now but will that transfer to a full-fat machine? Herve may want to retain his blue eyed boy but I reckon Yamaha will stymie that one. Smith will become another name in the long list of Tech3 riders who got nowhere. Other than Dovi, who was only a stop-gap, I can't think of any T3 rider who went onwards and upwards.
Where could any rider go after T3? There are only 6 factory seats in MGP and 4 of those have nearly always been taken by the aliens....T3 and the other couple of satellite rides is the top of the tree for most riders.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: If we can alter my bike we’ll get results


Cal is a straight talker, which we and Ducati already knew, so why the hysterics over his comments? Surely his job is to help develop the bike and get results. Dovi has experience and development time over Cal, so why the surprise he's doing much better? People forget how unique the Ducati is and how good Dovi is. Cal wants his position changing, so probably requires new frame and bodywork to accommodate I.e a redesign. Will be interesting to see what comes out of it

MotoGP » Catalunya MotoGP - Free Practice (2) Results


Colin Simpson: It's Julian Ryder who is the Smith fan(boy). He always bangs on about Smith not getting duffed up in a dice just as Smith is getting duffed up in a dice! It's funny how British fans (I'm one BTW) complained about all the Spaniards getting rides because of their passports but now the British have rides because of their passports it's a (slightly) different story. FWIW I think Scott Redding is the most talented British rider on the MotoGP grid. Crutchlow and Smith are capable of banzai laps but Lorenzo & Marquez ride like that all the time not once in a while!
Scott's bike was 16.8 kph slower than Pol's (fastest)!!....how much is that worth each lap?
