MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages


JasonLewis: I want to add, TF2 is not a troll and he has his facts straight. The guy has a lot of passion for this sport and that's a good thing. He wants to know who's really the best rider, hence is (original) handle. I just don't think Dorna makes decisions based on the Crash forum, know what I mean?
I think those of us who have been around understand and know that TF2 isn't a troll. He's a contributing member who has been consistent. Those of us who are familiar with him appreciate his insights. The caveat is that his insights come at a price...........and that price is repetition and a sullen overtone with regards to the sport. Other than that, he's an articulate and smart guy who loves the sport.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


therealDave: Also to the haters, If your interpretation is that past victories don't count (ie: are irrelivant) then never again shall it be highlighted that, others won on the ducati where Vale didn't others won more races in the 800 era than anyone else ....as ammunition in the arguments about who is better than who? I mean, thats only logical isn't it?
An ABSOLUTE BRAVO to this post Dave. Well stated.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


NineTimes: @ biaggi @ realist True... He moved to Ducati in the worst possible moment. Ducati were at their worst, especially at management level. But his move, in my opinion, has revolutionised Ducati and maybe we can argue that Ducati owe him thier future success.
I agree, and only a Rossi hater would deny that his inability to ride the red bike initiated a culture change within the company that will allow (and have allowed) their current (and future) riders to have a chance of success on the bike. Even the Honda-Yamaha-Ducati story here on Crash.net almost explicit refers to that critical point in the manufacturers history.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Brain: You really cant use a year to year comparison to judge how a rider is fairing compared to another. Bikes advance every year, tires usually advance every year. The competition moves forward every year, and for the most part Ducati stayed within striking distance with Stoner at the wheel. Once he left, they found out exactly how much of their advancement was due to him and him alone. They went from being a multi race winner, to 3 years behind the day he left.
I can, and I will. It's not my personal philosophy (..which aligns with yours), but the polarized fanbase does it, so when in Rome.....

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


biaggi: I am the only one in this forum who remembers the first races of Valentino on board of the desmosedici?? He was 20 second faster than the the other ducati riders and fighting with Dovizioso(on a super honda) until the last lap. Rossi over-rode that bike in the beginning of 2011 season. After he understood that they wouldn't change the engine layout he gave up.
I believe there were occasions where he finished the race faster than Stoner and lapped faster than Stoner too. It was just that the competition moved forward.

WSBK » Rea up to speed in first Kawasaki test


ar86: Rea beat rossi as a wildcard. Tom is easier task i think.
Rea, on Stoner's Repsol Honda beat Rossi on the pig Ducati in ONE of TWO races (Rea's 7th place to Rossi's 8th at Aragon). The race that occurred the weekend before at San Marino, Rossi came in 2nd and Rea in 8th. Let's keep things in perspective here, and not act like Rea pulled out some mastercraft performance.

MotoGP » Marquez: Motivation not an issue for 2015


mark.sandman.5:
Realist: Rewrite? Don't you mean rewrote? Equaling VR's achievements are the next target. I also agree that Marquez is in complete control of his bike. It may "look" over the top, but he's extremely comfortable on that bike. Tipping that bike deep into a corner with the rear wheel 6-7" off the ground just illustrates how confident he is in his riding ability and his package.
Uh, No! re-write verb 1. write something again so as to alter or improve it. "the songs may have to be rewritten"
Past tense...........rewrote!

MotoGP » Petrucci confirmed to ride ex-Crutchlow Ducati


some1: The race director has show enough coverage CC beat all 4 names you've mentioned in race battles. That is not the issue. His bike is perfect, his team is ready, his talent is sufficient, but his mindset is still like you thinking only about his bike was not as good as the factory bike. The package is ready, but his mindset are not. Only smarter riders win titles...
You're giving him too much credit.
