MotoGP » Rossi braces for ‘great fight’ with Lorenzo


Brain: Greatest of ALL TIME, seems pretty self explanatory.. So Rossi is the GOMER?
The reason for the distinction (and why everybody considers Rossi the GOAT.......even people in the paddock, the media, etc), is because Agostini raced in a time where there were multiple classes being run/raced simultaneously. The championship was set up very differently. Rossi has dominated in the new championship format, thus being labeled the GOAT. It's pretty self explanatory.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We need more testing


MattyMKO745: I know what I did, no need for reminding me, but thank you anyway :) As I said, I won't be disappointed.. They didn't do a thing, Scott wants the change..
Let's not be naive. It was already reported that they were going to replace him with Rabat after Brno (..and they were already waiting for Rabat to confidently make the jump anyway). He went running to Pramac because he knows that his ride is about to be reassigned. Don't try to pass this off as Scott holding the cards and leaving "of his own volition". You and I both know that isn't the case, and the reports of HRC not being happy with him are valid. He has no leverage with a lack of performance.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We need more testing


MattyMKO745: \ Why would I be unhappy?? If it will happen, it will happen.. I cannot do a thing.. Interesting is that Scott is in advanced talks with Pramac.. A lot will be known come Silverstone.. Deal could happen, considering how keen Ducati are to get him..
Because...ummm....you've stated with supreme confidence and zeal that it wouldn't happen (..and it looks like it probably will happen). You were the one claiming that MVDS wouldn't do this and Honda wouldn't do that, but it seems that you were likely wrong. If he goes to Pramac, I wish him well, but prepare for comparisons against whoever is on the bike now. With Pramac looking to sign Kent, it won't look good for Redding if Kent takes the ride. Kent is an exciting rider. I'd love to see him in the premier class.

Except that Danny Kent apparently has a 3-yr deal on the table from Pramac. And Petrucci is said to be staying. The problem (and the fun thing) with Speedweek is that they tend to report every rumour and whisper doing the rounds, which means much of their reporting is based on conjecture rather than fact. All makes for an interesting silly season though.
I hope Danny takes the ride.

alanw5293:
Realist: I don't care what you say about Cal, I'd replace Redding on the factory RCV before I replaced Cal.
Every thread is an opportunity to get at shot at Redding..at least you're consistent but surely the tape must wearing thin the amount you play it.
Only threads where Redding's performance is relevant. In this thread, everybody is quick to toss out vitriol in Crutchlow's direction and mention that he has a myriad of excuses, but he's keeping the bike inside of the top 10 on a bad day, and he's on the podium on his best day. You can't say the same for Redding on the same bike. My response wasn't personal, it was from a business perspective. Crutchlow is the best RCV rider outside of the HRC guys.

alanw5293: Realist: Seems your wishes have been granted,according to speedweek MB is in talks with several riders to replace Tito who has been promoted to Moto GP for 2016 at the request of Estrella and HRC.
It's more of a performance curiosity than a wish. Can you link the article?
Www.speedweek.com/motogp. Also says,in a bad translation that Tito is to replace Scott.
Thanks for the link. If what they are reporting is true, Matty is not going to be happy.
