MotoGP » Marquez unbeaten at Sachsenring since 2009


Trist26: Marquez will likely win it. But that's not what I'm concerned about. I'm more interested in how Rossi will keep Lorenzo behind him. None of those two have the best history with the track (none have won to my knowledge) and it's not a track any of them are particularly fond of. Tight, technical and should prove who's the best this year as we've had races where one of them has been on form and the other not so much and vice versa until now
Lets expand your knowledge then. Rossi has won 4 times and the 2006 race was a battle to the last corner with four bikes. Rossi won that one.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


SmoothCriminal: Does the Rossi brigade remember the jerez racing incident between Rossi and Stoner in 2011? How he took out Stoner? Or are we gonna sweep it under the rug?
I've watched that replay many times. there was a puddle of standing water that a braking front tire touched, loosing traction and washing out and colliding with Stoner's bike. The puddles there, Rossi didn't lose trction on purpose and if the puddle wasn't there - it woulda been a clean pass.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


BMR:
SkyWilk: If Rossi didnt even brake, and went straight through the turn, he would always be ahead, and still win the race Mr. Webb, what kind of an argument is that?... Rossi gained an advantage by not even atempting to make the turn at some point, thats that.
How is having to sit up and slow down to ride across gravel taking an advantage? MM forced VR on the side of the track
Yeah, Colin Edwards did it in 2006, just ask him (satire).

MotoGP » Rossi sizzles with record Assen pole


SuperSick58: Rossi is the G.O.A.T. My best race memory was at Philip Island (2001,2002?) when Rossi was leading on the 500's and he was black flagged. Rather than pull in for the penalty he stayed out there and went even faster and won the race by 15 seconds. Race officials docked him 10 seconds on his time which was the penalty but he still won the race....what a legend.
It was 2003 at Phillip Island and Rossi had already won the championship. They were the 990's and he got docked ten seconds for "passing on a yellow" with a little less than half way in the race. He upped his pace immensely and beat 2nd place Caparossi on a Ducati by about fifteen seconds to take victory with a ten second penalty pressed - GOAT.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Race a battle between front tyre and me


Here's a dumb question. When a rider says his front tire's gone, spent, no more left........What is actually gone? Is there a need for more tire rubber on the tire carcass? Why don't these tires have enough "rubber stuff" to complete a seventy-five mile race? Shouldn't they all be built to cover say-a hundred-fifty miles? What liabilities are there to overbuild a racing tire?

MotoGP » Rossi was further back than Marquez in 2006


Robert Danley: Not a good comparison. Rossi, at that time, was clearly the best rider in the championship. 3 DNFs cost him the title. One in France when he had 5+ sec lead with a few laps to go and the bike stopped. The other 2 were tire front tire failures at Laguna and Singapore when he was in podium positions at both races.
In 2006, the Yamaha M1 had a marginal cooling system problem. I was at the 2006 Laguna Seca and it had a freak HEAT WAVE raising the temperature to around 108 F. during race time (35 people were hospitalized due to heat exhaustion). I was at turn 2 and watched Rossi retire his bike after that corner was taken and his engine gave up the ghost. I witnessed Rossi at his lowest point in the 2006 Championship. I was also at the 2008 Laguna Seca race watching Rossi turn around his career right before my eyes.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow dislocates ankle in Mugello fall


MLF: Damm ! both CC and BS were gifted two or three spots from others crashing ,so they were having good luck up till then. BS stayed on to make his position look better than it was at least. But I predicted 6th and 8th for the pair so I was pretty much on it . I also had CC at sixth place and he cost me some points. Had he not crashed and had Marquex known his place as 5th, I would probably be LEADING the MotoGP League Guesstimating Extravaganza. As it is I'm at 657 points and the leading USA citizen at position 50 (down from position 18 last week).

MotoGP » Moto3: Quartararo ‘I tried to overtake like Rossi, Marquez’


TrueFan:
anon7: I guess his ambition outweighed his talent, for now...
Well in fairness, despite the unfounded optimism of the attempt, Fabio managed to avoid taking anyone out...albeit only just...it was nowhere near as bad a brain snap as VR's move on Stoner that precipitated that put down, which is an Australian phrase. I know it upsets yellow fans, but it was what it was. Fabio is very young, and it's pretty obvious he is a remarkable talent. He'll learn from it, and we should see impressive things from him as he develops.
When Rossi made that hard braking move on Stoner at Jerez in 2011, there was a puddle of water where Rossi's front tire washed out and down he went. If you can, look at the replay - the puddle's there and takin him down.

MotoGP » MotoGP Spain - Race Results


This might fall into the category of "bragging", but also credibility: There's whats called the League on the MotoGP website where points are tallied on the participants guesstimate on finish places for the points rewarded in the MotoGP races. These are tallied and your results are awarded throughout the Championship. There's about ten thousand participants. Currently after four races, i'm the top USA participant and number 36 overall. I have 462 points. Anybody here doing better?
