MotoGP » Ducati confirms new Nicky Hayden MotoGP contract


"Good points on page 3 as well, especially when you consider how consistent Pedrosa has been for nearly a decade. Hayden's 2006 win was the product of a lunar alignment, some witch hazel and...the God's were drunk." Wrong, not when you count the fact that in 2006 Hayden was TESTING parts for Pedrosa (Spanish rider, Spanish sponsorship), bad clutch (remember that?!), being speared by your own teammate (remember that?!). Nicky had finished up 2005 with 4 straight podiums. Lunar Alignment, Witch Hazel, god's drunk?! Come on man you can't possibly be that myopic. Nicky's hard work and perseverance paid dividends when even your own team was bowing down to Puig and his supposive "golden child" Pedrobot. Sheesh!

MotoGP » Rossi: Money 'not important' in 2013 decision


"so where hondas reach 15k...ducatis are 17k....at mugello, where the hondas were going with 9k rpm, the ducatis used to be atleast 12k....so you put in the rev limit and ducatis only advantage goes poof....." Are you high?! All of the FACTORY prototypes can and do hit nearly 20k RPM. Honda, Yamaha AND Ducati. Hell, my old 2005 CBR600RR, bone stock, would easily hit 15.5K RPM. STOCK! No electronics (other than a PowerCommander and Arata pipe).

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden deal done?


"Hayden should thank Rossi and his team for making improvements to the bike that has helped him get better results. If Rossi weren't there I'm sure the bike would be even worse. If Ducati is resigning Hayden due to his stronger results this year I'm sure as others mentioned it could be a way to help Rossi as he likes Hayden and to assure they have a consistent rider if Rossi does leave." Hayden was riding the Duc TWO YEARS before Rossi arrived. Rossi is benefitting the work that Hayden has done to help develop the bike. Rossi doesn't develop bikes. He and Burgess give feedback and Burgess makes suggestions. If anything, Rossi is a benefactor of having Hayden as a teammate: The consumate pro who does not badmouth his employer or teammate.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden deal done?


"Three guys who found there best sucess in WSBK (or 250's), is your argument that an old guy can with in GP's?" What I am saying is that "age" isn't a factor in racing ability, it's TALENT -- and Josh Hayes has LOADS of it. There are tons of young guys in WSBK and GP that will NEVER make an impact in GP or full litre bikes. Kenan Sofoglu ring a bell? Martin Cardenas ring a bell? Two great examples of fast 600CC guys that can't do jack SQUAT on a litrebike.

MotoGP » Hayden: There must have been something on the track


I love the haters, lol! Of course Nicky must just be slow. Let's not talk about what happened to Spies or DePuniet. Sure -- the track had NOTHING to do with what happened to them. It's just that Nicky's slow. Sure. You people are simply myopic with your views. If any rider gives you facts you simply dismiss it with no factual basis from you, whatsoever. You're not a rider, YOU DON'T KNOW. That's why the riders ride and you haters are doing nothing but drinking, smoking and watching.

MotoGP » Ducati: Full upgrade package for Laguna Seca


Hayden could (and did) run consistently in the top 5 from 2005-2006 until the 800s came into play. I do agree, the engine limit rule has to go away. They SHOULD figure out a way to entice teams like Kawasaki, Suzuki, BMW and Aprilia back into GP and provide more competition and more seats for riders. The way Dorna is running MotoGP -- well, it's going to end up losing all of it's fans to WSBK.
