MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


Bryan277: Unfair. Galbusera joined a hugely experienced 9 times World Championship winning team with Rossi at the helm. WSK Pike joined Moto2 runner-up Redding. Where's the comparison?
Keep things in PERSPECTIVE, and manage this discussion on Scott's Open bike results versus his factory bike results. In theory (and all things being equal in Scott's team....with a year of premier class experience), the better machinery should be yielding better results. That's the bottom line. Bradl ran up front. Bautista had his moments in the sun. Crutchlow is up front. Simo RIP ran with the lead pack. Redding ISN'T. He's back there piddling around with Open bikes on a factory supported Honda.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


matt liddy:
Comprehend what you're reading and try to be objective. Redding's team has been around awhile (albeit in M2), so they are NOT new to GP's in general, and they have access to factory data as well. It's not a poor comparison at all. I kept it simple. It's not trolling. Next to his peers Redding is under-performing. You can try to make excuses for it, but it is what it is. Even he knows that he is under-performing and has said it explicitly.....and so has his team. When SR was on the 213-RS Open bike, everybody exclaimed that he'd "be up front" if he had the factory bike, etc. etc., and used the bike as justification for his performance. He has the factory bike now (and a full year in GP), and he's still performing about the same. The excuses while on a good bike only last for so long before you have to start looking at the rider. That goes for anybody.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


Twissta: I totally agree with you agree on this one, However I was pointing out that his over confidence and the lack of experience he and his team has, will need to re-assessed now that reality has set in.
Let's hope they reassess soon. I think people wouldn't be giving Redding so much schick if he hadn't pumped himself up and talked about what he "would" do "if" he had "better" machinery. He should have kept expectations low and let his racing to the talking. Instead he talked too much and his racing isn't representative of what his mouth says. Look at how P.Espargaro has handled his rookie and follow-up seasons compared to Redding. Pol just keeps a low profile and charges up front the best he can. Not much lip....just rubber to pavement.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


matt liddy: Once again (yawn) all those mentioned had experienced teams. You just. Don't. Get. It... The problem is all things are not equal (the team...) I said earlier about Scott's open bike performance. With equal standing (no team had an
You conveniently IGNORED my previous Aoyama example because it doesn't fit your script. Aoyama has access to the best, yet he's riding around with Open Class bikes on an HRC factory bike. The difference: the rider. As most have always said, the rider makes the difference. Scott is an under-performer. Like someone already mentioned, last year Scott fans yelled "It's the bike!!". Now that he has the bike, the chants have morphed to "It's the team!!!". What will it be next year? None of you are willing to consider that "It's the rider!!!!"

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


matt liddy: His engineer while very experienced, is a super bike guy.
So is Silvano Galbusera (for the most part). He spent the most recent years of his career in WSBK/WSS and he had no experience with the current GP tires or brakes either. Massimo Meregalli was even concerned when he said, "For sure he [Silvano] will need some time to adjust to MotoGP", but it has been demonstrated that he is obviously a talented Crew Chief, and his lack of experience isn't hindering his ability to assess and set up Rossi's bike. Don't make excuses for Redding AS A RIDER.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I am always able to come back


Yearby23: What you saw in parc-ferme was raw emotion.. It was put on it was delight and relief that he is back at the top of his game. If you want to analyse personalities why not watch a soap opera?
Oh give me a break man. LOL! :) I wasn't referring to his "raw emotion" in PF (if you can even call it that). I was referring to his moon antics, swim antics, etc. Stop trying to act like personalities don't matter when discussing celebrities. The point people were trying to make is that ALL of his antics over the years have come across awkward and forced.

MotoGP » Crutchlow helps with Honda swing-arm test


Bryan277: Yes. Some may argue that Galbusera also had no prior MotoGP experience, but he works with a 36 year-old rider who is a 9 times World Champion and came with a stable and vastly experienced factory team in support.
Galbusera was only brought up because somebody mentioned that Pike's superbike experience was a detriment. Galbusera as a juxtaposition was meant to demonstrate that the superbike background is irrelevant, especially when you guys keep tossing in the rider's experience and the team's experience as variables that bolster the result. Redding wouldn't be catching flack if he had not have been yelling, "Give me the factory bike and I'll get you the results" last season (much like Crutchlow caught flack when he was chasing a factory bike and passive aggressively criticizing certain riders before him, only to fail on the Duc too). He dug his own hole.
