MotoGP » Espargaro: I could have stayed with leaders


TedG: Here is the thing, most likely the reason that he wiped out both bikes because he was riding over his head. Yes great lap times, but that pace can't be maintained. So the reason that he was riding Fkn Old Rebuild Dodge was because his ego was writing checks that his body couldn't cash.
I agree! I also think AE is a bit delusional regarding the reality versus the reality "in his head". He has been impressive in the pre-season, and nobody can take that away from him, but the race is an entirely different thing.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'Dangerous' Galbusera bet paid off


Poddy: Rossi is a great rider but let's see the truth after one single race Rossi has the same result as last year and somehow the change in crew chief has paid off, bit early to be calling that one but fanboys will jump on anything at anytime except the truth. Sad sorry sack for many
It's more than "one single race". It's VR's attitude, his relationship with the 2014 bike (as opposed to how he felt about the 2013 bike), his pace both in the race and pre-season, etc. It's the culmination of many things that give his fans hope. Yes, he had the same result last year.....but 15 seconds off of the winner. This year his was right on the rear wheel of the winner. Big difference!

MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


SmokinHaddock: I'm not sure Smith attracts fanboys. More a case of folks who are willing to defend him against irrational criticism. Just look at the overwhelming support for him on this thread. Smith has done well to turn opinion around, and there a few on here who have had the courage to admit a change of heart. If you don't understand why folk like him then maybe you missed the fact he put a satellite bike on the front row, and only crashed trying to close the 1.7 second gap to MM and Rossi. The improvement from 12 months ago is admirable. So much for Pol beating him every race, although I also admire the way Pol has taken to a MotoGP biker quicker than most.
He attracts fanboys who like him simply because he's a Brit (..just like Crutchlow). Bradley doesn't have as many as the more popular riders, but that's because Bradley hasn't done anything in GP (yet!).

MotoGP » Paul Bird (PBM) - Q&A


I don't follow PBM much, but I found this article interesting. He seems like a no nonsense type of guy, and he was adamant about not putting the blame on lack of manufacturer support (..and focusing on results first). I have to admire that. He could have easily used not having support as an excuse. He also seems to know right where he and his riders fall in the pecking order given their current resources, and that's admirable as well.

MotoGP » Dovizioso 'happy' as Ducati halves the gap


TrueFan: @Dr Relliscada - Bayliss only won one race on the 990 Ducati. The only two multiple winners on Ducati were Capirossi and Stoner. The trellis frame had problems, (despite the wins), not the least of which was consistency between frames. As much as I hate it, they need to start with the Ducaha.
Exactly! Dr. keeps pushing that nonsense as though the Trellis was without issue.
