MotoGP » Pedrosa admits 'it wasn't my best performance'


Yearby23: It winds me up how people constantly overlook Pedrosa.... The 4th most successful podium finisher in all classes of all time. With the 8th most race wins in any class of all time. Everyone who sits above him in the standings for both of those lists have multiple championships... Wins: Ago, Rossi, Nieto, Hailwood, Doohan, Lorenzo, Read...then Pedrosa and Stoner. Podiums: Rossi, Ago, Nieto, Pedrosa, Read, Lorenzo, Hailwood, Biaggi, Capirossi. Give the guy a break!
Exactly! I'm tired of it too. Pedrosa has his seat because he DESERVES his seat.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


46Renovation: Rossi comes through in this self-assessment much franker and more realistic that those of us who are raving for his stellar and refreshing victory today. He seems to ackowledge the perfection in the set-up of the bike more than any exponential explosion of ability on his part. He is obviously not self-abnegating but acknowledges that the opposition, particularly MM and JLo, are the stronger, new kids of the block. How I wish that there is a bit of stonewalling in all that and that we will witness yet another display and outcome like today before the season rings out. Well done #46.
Um sorry, Lorenzo is NOT a new kid on the block. Marquez on the other hand....IS!

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Congrats! Let's hope that Redding puts on a show for those grandstanding for him. I'm not convinced, but I'll surely give him props if his end-of-season tally next year is one riddled with impressive results. If it isn't, surely those who claim he's going to perform this and that on the factory class bike will cool their jets. Roll on 2015! So....does this mean no MVDS in Moto2 at all? Where does that leave Rabat and Kallio?

MotoGP » Dovizioso: We're getting closer all the time


Codger: Some people find negatives in everything.
I agree to a point, but let's be honest.....the concessions really lessen the impact (..and I'm not saying that the concessions are a cure-all entirely). Having them run up front - even if it's not always the entire race - is a good thing, but it begs to question: "If they were using the same tires as the other factory bikes, would it still happen?" I'm eager to see if Gigi's Duc can make a real impression.

MotoGP » Vintage Rossi clinches emotional victory at Misano


Codger: Understandably the Rossi fans are enjoying this win, and so they should. I would like to see just one poster, who said Jorge has the best chance of beating Marc, come back on and admit they got it wrong. Dovi made his tyres last the race. In fact he was quicker toward the end of the race !!!
I'd love to see that too, but it'll never happen (from the usual suspects....Husky excluded). Most are not willing to admit when they are/were wrong.

MotoGP » Redding reacts to Gresini Aprilia deal


I want him to get the factory 213V so that he can put up or shut up. If he gets the factory bike, yet fails to impress, it'll hush all of the nonsense about him being able to take it handily to Marquez. If he does well, then it'll hush those who doubt(ed) him (including me....I'm just not convinced that he's THAT good). Either way, he needs the bike so that we can "see what he's made of" and move on.
