WSBK » Biaggi: A great and unbelievable comeback!


bernyec: well the dust has settled, anyone remember the race results, Haslam - Biaggi, some silly posters on here, i do like Biaggi, (i had a cracking RSV Biaggi rep bike) cant wait so see him again soon.
It got real quiet after Haslam placed higher than Biaggi in both races. People should leave the predictions alone and save the trash talking until after race day.

MotoGP » Vinales: My best performance so far


another93: Tell me when was the last time there was a non-factory champion.
I never implied that there was. I merely disagreed with your hypothetical statement (...."give him an M1 and he'll be unstoppable"). There are all types of hypothetical situations that get tossed about on Crash, and none of them have panned out. Dovi is gonna do this. Crutchlow is gonna do that. Spies is gonna do this. Marquez isn't going to do that. Redding is going to do this.......and the list goes on and on. People are just really eager to find a champion in somebody.....anybody. Sometimes that eagerness brings about some ridiculous propositions (not referring to you, just speaking generally). Like I said, I like Vinales. I've followed him his entire career, but to say that he's the next GOAT when he hasn't even matched the non-GOATS (..not even close) is a tall order, and it's premature.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget


SendingOutOfSpace: . we know that mm always uses things from danis setup to improve and even stole dp setup and dani got real mad about it.
This is only partially correct. Marquez used Dani's data his first year on the bike, and understandably so. He needed some sort of starting point in 2013. Hayden also used Dani's data in 2008, so are you going to lambast him too? Jorge used Rossi's data when he first got the M1. Stoner used Marquez and Pedrosa's settings when he needed to get back up to speed on the HRC bike. It's common. All of the factory riders look at each other's data and try each other's settings.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget


KnowNothing: If this has been addressed already I missed it, but does anyone know if Dani is still running the '15 chassis? Just wondering if Honda are using him as the development mule since he has no WC chance this year.
He is, but his '15 chassis is not the same spec as Marquez's (..nor was it ever). J.Lo and Rossi don't run the same spec chassis either.

MotoGP » Surgery complete for Stefan Bradl


reinmacre: Seriously, CC35 hasn't really done any better than the Moto2 champ on the LCR Honda.
In all fairness, how much better did you expect CC35 to be? There are 4 very strong factory bikes from Yamaha and Honda that are almost always filling the top 4 slots, plus two bikes from a resurgent Ducati. Anywhere from 5th to 8th is where that LCR bike should be, along with an occasional/odd podium.

MotoGP » Vinales: My best performance so far


another93: Realist: "Maybe not in those exact words, but you suggested that he'd be a championship contender. " Yes , suppose this too.. that Maverick in his Second Moto2 year would have been a certain championship contentor taking on the likes of Rabat and Zarco , proven already by his replacement Rins that the bike is good enough to get wins.
Agreed. Mav had run up front consistently in M3/M2.

MotoGP » Vinales: My best performance so far


another93: ...Then again nobody has thought that Marquez would dominate MotoGP Are you sure you are being right in comparing him with the old dogs of the game with the' going to ' s ? How could you even mention Maverick in the same pargraph GOAT ? What we can also agree on is that Maverick has the potential to be Champion material , atleast a multiple Motogp winner . !!
The opinions on Marquez were split: half thought he'd enter GP and kill it, and the other half thought that he'd enter GP and crash more often than not. The former half were correct. It was evident the moment that MM93 jumped on the HRC bike. I never compared Mav to the old dogs. I never compared him to the GOAT either. Somebody else earlier in this thread did, and I stated that it was premature to put that kind of pressure and expectation on Mav. He has a really long way to go. I do agree that Mav has a lot of potential. I think Suzuki did well to put him and AE on the bikes.

MotoGP » Vinales: My best performance so far


another93: I have never said he would be unstoppable on a M1
Maybe not in those exact words, but you suggested that he'd be a championship contender. :) It's possible, but it's also possible that he wouldn't be (a'la Dovi on the HRC bike or Spies on the M1), so it's all supposition at this point. P.S. It was F0ul who mentioned Mav and the GOAT in the same sentence, and ReaFan that said he's going to be "unstoppable" in a couple of seasons. My bad! Still a reach though.
