MotoGP » Amazing Marquez ‘rides MotoGP like dirt track’


Insidejob: Jorge is faster than Vale, but Vale has more experience. In the 5 years that they have raced together on Yamahas Vale amassed 1,444 points and Jorge, 1,427, a difference of 17 points. Taking into account that one of Jorge's years was a rookie year, in my mind gives Jorge a slight advantage in terms of performance. Also total wins Vale, 20. Jorge 24. This tells me that Jorge is the better rider.
That's called "selective" evaluating. Rossi is what, 7+ years Lorenzo's senior? They are at very different points in their careers, so you can't simplify it by juxtaposing Rossi in his twilight and Jorge still in his prime. Rossi is impressive because in his mid 30's, he's still running up front. It's like comparing an up & coming runner (when there is one) to Usain Bolt when he's nearing retirement or the next best swimmer when Michael Phelps is nearing retirement. It's a ridiculous proposition.

MotoGP » Amazing Marquez ‘rides MotoGP like dirt track’


Insidejob: "It's a ridiculous proposition." Comparing Usain Bolt with a bike rider. Remember Biaggi... world champ at 40 years old. Runners=all body. Riders=talent, skill, intelligence and body. Big difference.
You missed the entire point altogether. Biaggi's WC at 40 is irrelevant, and runners/swimmers ALSO require talent and skill (...bike riding doesn't require any more or less intelligence as the aforementioned sports). The parallel was drawn because both Bolt and Phelps dominated their respective sports (like Rossi has in GP). Pay attention.

MotoGP » VIDEO: MotoGP's next big young thing?


Yearby23:
aeolus: And he's Spanish! What a surprise.
It's not their fault their championships are of a high quality with very talented riders. We in the UK on the other hand have BSB...A place where MotoGP and SBK riders go to win championships in their late thirties... Spain have come to the top of the game this past decade.
Exactly! Spain produces talent.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


The outcome of this poll is simple.... ....Marquez was expected to dominate (as he did), so him falling within the #1 or #2 spot was a given. It wasn't just his bike.....it was his talent. Give credit where credit is due. Rossi and Dovi ranked high because of exceeding expectations (...where haters are concerned in Rossi's case, and form where Dovi is concerned)........and Rossi is, and likely will always be, the most popular modern rider of all time. You have to give the old fox credit. He put up....and shut up the critics...this year.
