MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


alanw5293: Realist: You are doing it yet again,not talking about Cal,once again you said "hope another rider gets Reddings bike so the point can be proven" but it will not be the same bike!So any comparison is not relevant. You made the comment and it is non provable because of the differential.
At what point will you be willing to admit that maybe, just maybe, Redding isn't strong enough to run up front instead of blaming the bike, the engine, Honda.........whoever? The bikes don't change THAT much Alan. It's not like they went from 500 to 990 or 800 to 1000. It's more or less the same bike with minor changes. Again, regardless of how you look at it, Redding is just not getting the most out of that package. All emotion aside and logic applied will make that a very clear observation. If you just want to talk exact same bike versus exact same bike, Crutchlow is showing Redding the way.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


alanw5293: Realist: Let me say this very slowly,you said in regards to Scott's bad results compared to Cal quote "hope another rider gets Readings bike so the point can be proven" but the 2016 bike will be different so any comparison will be inaccurate and unfair.
Yes I said that, and I still feel that way. The 2016 bike will likely be different as each iteration changes in some way, but by how much is an unknown. It may not change much at all. It may change drastically. All of the 2016 chatter is all speculation. The comparisons to Crutchlow are relevant. Crutchlow, on the current bike, is still able to put it inside of the top 10 (just as Bradl and Bautista did). Regardless of how you look at this, Redding isn't getting it done. Crutchlow is proving that the bike is still a top 10 contender regardless of the season.

MotoGP » Sam Lowes linked to MotoGP with Aprilia


madh4tt3r: they have never done anything in that top level so why chance it now?
...Because "then" and "now" are two different periods of time. Just because someone was fat in 1996 doesn't mean they have to be fat in 2015 (loosely conceived analogy). Aprilia have experienced a lot of success in the last 5 or 6 years, and their current GP effort is not without merit. Their full prototype entry COULD be surprising. Either way, it's a factory ride. Let me state that again.........it's a factory ride.........in GP. Lowes would be downright silly not to take it. It MAY be the only factory ride he may ever get. Most riders never achieve a factory ride. It took Crutchlow years in GP to get a factory ride with Ducati, and that ship sailed. He'll likely never get another shot.

MotoGP » Sam Lowes linked to MotoGP with Aprilia


madh4tt3r: I just get worried when such top blokes have to take an unknown entity. I want the best for Sam as I have always felt he is the best of the Brits... there is no denying Sam has the most raw talent out of the current crop of Brits in the GP scene.
What choice do they have though? The cream of the crop have the best seats lined up. Nobody will be unseating Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez or Pedrosa any time soon. Rossi will race until he is no longer competitive (I can see him renewing at least one more time after 2016, especially if he wins this year or comes close to winning, and is equally competitive next year), and the Repsol boys along with Lorenzo are still young enough to renew contracts for awhile. I'll tell you this much, I want somebody else other than Redding on that HRC bike, and with a shuffle of riders it could make the class even more interesting.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title charge is on


armin899: Do you by any chance know the meanings of words, rules, integrity & commitment? Dorna does exactly what Dorna ask them to do.
They were within the rules. There was no lapse of integrity here (...which would be a different story if ONLY the Repsol squad had access to the 2014 option, but EVERY team did). Commitment? What does this have to do with commitment? Hell, Bridgestone is even willing to put their special sauce on Lorenzo's tires to help his corner speed issues. If Bridgestone is willing to do that for Lorenzo, why are you so up in arms about them offering everybody 2014 tires in Germany?

armin899: Didn't want to be disrespectful, but what you said is total bull-OX! Dorna saved their amazing boy by giving him the 2014 tyres.
What part of "they all had access to the same tires" don't you comprehend?
enough with the tires ...I like my engine conspiracy better....LOL
At least it's a better contrived conspiracy theory. LOL!

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


alanw5293: I know exactly what they are saying and I know what I am saying.Yes he took Bautista's slot but that does not mean it is the same bike and if another rider gets Scott's slot it will not be the same bike so any comparison on results are irrellivant...the haters just want their opinion of Scott to be vindicated.
My God...how daft are you? Nobody ever said it was the exact same bike (it's already a given that bikes change from year to year - even if only slightly - and it shouldn't need to be explicitly stated for you to understand the tone of the conversation). The comparisons that we make with Scott are usually relative to Crutchlow, and Scott is nowhere near Crutchlow. You just have a comprehension problem and everybody reading this thread can see that. I know that you're emotional because your boy can't compete (..insert all of your reasons here), but that doesn't change the reality.
