MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016


Brain: 3. Nonsense, the Factories spend 10's of millions of dollars per year to participate, its nobodies business who they choose to ride THEIR machines. What is this , 1940's Germany.
I agree with this as well. Their CHOICE is THEIR choice. People who slate Pedrosa tend to have a myopic perspective on his role in the team. He's an excellent wingman.......#2 rider.........points sapper (from the opposing riders). He is an entirely capable rider, and he does what a #2 should be doing.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


TF2: I think Marc has had the luxury of being able to stay within the limits of his package in races, and yet have the pace to win. He is great and aggressive in overtaking I agree, and takes his chances - but the way he can shadow others and then make a move when he wants says his package gives him something in hand to play with as well. ..... Which means that MM might be a very different rider without his HRC cushion. That's not 'hate' or any of that kiddie silly stuff against MM, that's just a reasonable observation IMO.
I think you underestimate him quite a bit TF2. MM has dominated without rider aids in M2 and the lower class, and his riding style incorporates a significant amount of insane braking maneuvers where the rear wheel is off of the ground (thus relying simply on the brakes, the front suspension, the balance and the will of the rider). In MM's specific situation, I think the aids play a lesser part in the overall picture.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Duds123: Funny thing, ask anyone of those racers and I think they will agree more with me. Ask Hayden if he was on Marquiz's bike, would he be running up front with the top 4? I think we know his answer! LOL
I don't think Hayden would be in the top 4 on MM's bike. He'd be in the top 10, but not the top 4. Hayden is not the rider.........nothing close to the rider.........that MM or any of the top 4 are.

Brain: I initially predicted Lorenzo would outscore Rossi in the second half of the season but not catch him for second or third. After Rossi's dnf and Lorenzo's win, it became not only possible , but probable. To Rossi's credit, he righted the ship and took 2nd . Have fun with 2nd place, next year Lorenzo will restore order in the Yamaha camp and be 2nd in the championship while Rossi falls to at least 3rd.
LOL @ you. You better hope that you don't end up eating your shoe next season.

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016


TrueFan: Safe to say that the satelite teams will do one or two test each, but the factory teams will do the bulk of the donkey work. No doubt, the data will be shared by teams of the same manufacturer. Smith has already said he has access to factory team data, and I have no doubt the others all do it too. Frankly, even if the current competition IS unfair (per TF2's level playing field criteria for determining good racing), I think it will be a sad day for motorsport if we are denied the spectacle of Marquez riding into a corner with his rear wheel skipping, and tipping it in whilst he maintains a precarious balancing act with the mass of the motorcycle pivoting over a front wheel subject to serious braking forces, while inertia attempts to send the whole mass tangential to the corner he is negotiating. I hope that Michelin can give him a tyre that is up to the task.
Agreed 100%. Thank you for also pointing out what we already knew about sharing data. That

therealDave: Time always reveals the truth.....VR is better than Jlo and the only one scared of that is Jlo (along with being scared of rain, tyres and mosquito's).
...and let's not forget fitness. Objectively speaking..... he can't claim that his fitness was off when the dude was constantly posting workout videos on his Instagram (..jump roping, mountain climbers, this & that) during the season. He was obviously fit, but maybe just less fit than the others (..mentally or otherwise).

Brain:
NineTimes: @ brain Not much of brait i see... Yes, for a 36 YO 2nd and beating the younger double world champion in considered "Top" performance. Now i woul like to see JL at 36. I don't think if jorge can keep up for another 3,4 years.
Not sure what a brait is, but im sure its complimentary. Rossi was top Yamaha, how is that?
It's funny how people slate Rossi's #2, but didn't slate Lorenzo's #2 in 2013. All of a sudden now being the top Yamaha "doesn't matter", or is less critical when it comes to hierarchy.

NineTimes: I, personally have no hate against Lozzer (i borrowed the word). I even think he is a decent human being as he was the only rider who attended Sic's funeral. Jorge jsu isn't mentally strong as was before and that's mainly because of MM phenomenon and a rejuvenated VR. The popularity or MM & VR has also a big part in that. That was one of the main reasons CS dod retire from the sport (i wish he didn't).
The only rider? Surely you jest! Rossi was there (..of course! They were best friends). RDP was there too......among others.

Duds123: Realist I think you are underestimating Bradl bud. Fact is on an off day Marquiz also battled to run at the front. Ii think he is the quickest amongst the lot but his abilities are greater than Bradl's bike will allow him to achieve what he does on the Repsol bike.
I'm not underestimating him, but I don't think he is the quality of rider that Marquez is. I think we can all agree on that. Just because SB can't doesn't mean that MM isn't capable. Marquez doesn't have many "off days", so even trying to use that as an argument is just silly. He's at the front almost all of the time. Bradl has been at the front once. Aside from the data solutions, Bradl's bike is more or less just like Marquez's and Pedrosas. We can agree to disagree on the merit of their skills (which I don't see how anybody could argue in favor of Bradl), but let's not sit here and act like Bradl didn't have prime kit.
