MotoGP » Lorenzo: It’s like tennis…


Welshie: Funny how you cherry pick. In 2009 Lorenzo ran Rossi hard, in 2010 he comperensively outpaced him BEFORE his accident in Mugello. If you want to play the injury card lets discount 2014 then? When Lorenzo broke his collarbone twice in succession...
Your choice of words is funny. In 2009, Rossi beat Lorenzo by 45 points. FORTY FIVE POINTS! ....AND he had 6 wins to Lorenzo's 4. He was also on the podium all but 4 races (..Lorenzo was off the podium for 5 races). That's not "running Rossi hard" IMHO. Running hard is what Lorenzo did to Marquez in 2013 (..considering Marquez won by 4 points). In 2010, Rossi broke his leg with only a 4 point deficit after race 3. That is not "comprehensively outpacing Rossi" considering they both had a win, a 2nd....and Rossi had a 3rd to J.Lo's other second place. Stop with the exaggerating.

SkyWilk: As far as i remember, JLO hurt himself in 2009 too... not to mention that was the famous "wall year", and also the first year of JLO with the brigestone tires, while Rossi already had them the previous year.
I'm aware of J.Lo's injuries from all of the crashes, but that wasn't the point of my response. It was his wording that I was responding too because it was clearly an exaggeration.

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


alanw5293: Realist: Bautista had the 2014 spec bike. Scott has the 2015 spec bike with which MM has not been happy.
Did you not read anything I said? We're not even talking about anything other than Redding getting the bike vacated by Bautista. That's it. We're not talking about 2014 vs 2015 vs [the presumed improvement] 2016 bikes. Nobody said the bikes were "technically" the same, but the fact is that there are only 4 factory bikes available at any given time, and the one factory bike that Redding received was the one slotted for Bautista (just like the one Crutchlow received was the one that was slotted for Bradl). Those are undeniable facts. Why you continue to argue otherwise is astounding. Do I need to post link after internet link of every media outlet, team principal, etc. referring to Redding's bike as "Bautista's"?

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


w w w.asphaltandrubber.com/motogp/gresini-racing-scott-redding-motogp-2015/ Excerpt: "Under normal circumstances, Scott Redding would already know exactly where he will be racing in 2015. He has a contract with HRC and Gresini to race with the Go&Fun Gresini team, which puts him aboard the factory option Honda RC213V next year, replacing Alvaro Bautista" How many more do I need to post Alan before you get it?

MotoGP » Redding: I lost the chance to prove myself


w w w.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/115874 Excerpt: "Redding is riding Gresini's Open class Honda for his rookie MotoGP season. He had been expected to replace Alvaro Bautista on the team's works-specification bike prior to the Aprilia move. The Marc VDS decision means both of Honda's factory-specification customer MotoGP bikes will have British riders in 2015, as Cal Crutchlow will switch from Ducati to ride LCR's example [of Bradl's]."
