WSBK » Bayliss back for Thailand, better prepared


How is that....at 46, no prep and he can keep pace respectibly with the current crop! He can only improve with fitness, more bike prep time and especially this next round where the track is new to everyone. I think top ten is a certain and if he, with the team, can work out the rear grip issues, I would not count out a top 6 either. Go Troy, Go!!!!!! PS - Hope this doesn't cause any tensions with his family (they have had him now for 6 years and he seems itching to go again). I realy thought he just wanted the go around in Aus. and then he would be content.

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


separated: @Joeski Yes, the 2007 Ducati was the fastest package, but the question is who could have ridden it as well as Stoner did? Why did riders like Capirossi and Melandri perform so poorly relatively to him?
And in this one comment, you have shown the VR haters how stupid it was to claim all his wins and titles didn't count because he had the best equipment!!!!!!! Others had same and the difference was even bigger..... I love how as time goes by, the constant flow of contradictions ultimatley prove the VR fans right (not to mention VR's results).

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’


Don't like where this dicussion has headed. All of a sudden, tyre advantages / disadvantages are not a real issue and simply Vale is having a sook many are insinuating! Interesting how many of these "many" where crying foul in 2012 when tyre changes that EVERYONE had to live by were introduced......how unfair that was proclaimed by many of said "many". Typical, not unexpected but still disappointing! Contradictions everywhere..... Could it be Vale is simply telling it how it is (the irony)??

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez, Honda have held advantage


BoZz: Didnt he say the day before the test that, tomorrow will be important for a top time as everyone will be going for it? and in this last interview at sepang he says today is not important its only for fun.
They all contradict themselves at some stage....Jlo 2014 was hurt by the tires, no wait, the mosquitos, no wait, his lack of fitness, no wait, the weather. Stoner 2012, I am not retiring, its a media beat-up and then 2 days later, I'm retiring.... Just 2 high profile examples along with this today from Rossi.......what's your point?

MotoGP » Incidents mar Michelin MotoGP test


Brain:
Codger: RaceRoad & JedPB67 ... It was to Rossi's credit that his race times still kept pace with those that Casey and Nicky had delivered. Unfortunately Honda and Yamaha had upped the stakes.
The last year Casey rode the Ducati as bad as it was, he was only 2/10ths of the fastest rider, [Rossi on the Yamaha] at Sepang test 2 . In Rossi's first year with Ducati at the 2nd Sepang test, he was 1.8 seconds off the fastest rider, Stoner on the Honda. Even the bad bikes get faster, but in comparison, there is no comparison.
Brain, your theory is wrong and Codgers is right...proof.... Sepang Race QP 2010 - Nicky Hayden 2.01.637 & Casey Stoner 2.02.023 Sepang Test 2011 (24/02/2011) - Valentino Rossi 2.01.469 Please, explain how the numbers are distorted and not a true reflection of Codgers logic?

. The bikes and tires get better every year and even the Ducati got faster. Case in point, Stoners Ducati was faster in 2010 than it was in 2007 but nowhere near as competitive..Second, you are comparing testing to racing, which anyone who knows anything about the sport knows they are not comparable. Its why testing times are unofficial and dont count in the record book. Thats why i compared test to test, not test to race. Point being, Stoner kept the Ducati competitive when it was hopelessly behind and Rossi couldnt.
No, still wrong Brain!

WSBK » Bayliss to make sensational WSBK return!


Top stuff from a top bloke. Don't think he wants a permanent role but a great opportunity to say thanks to all the fans and experience that "buzz" again. He is still mad about riding (road & off-road) and has his Ducati deal with his Bayliss experience and then his coaching of youngsters as well capped off by dirt racing when he can. The man just loves bikes, racing and being part of the "boys"........great bloke and an example of Australia's best attributes! For all his superbike glory, I will never forget him coming back for the last race of the 2006 MotoGP season after being treated poorly in general, and kicking everyone's butt by a mile on the Ducati.....Legend!

MotoGP » ‘Final say’ for MotoGP software unclear


My opinion is the more basic the electronics, the better! Right or wrong, the rules in 2014 made qualifying closer and more open to others outside the usual suspects. With the same, basic electronics in 2016 (and new tires), I think we will see closer results over race distance and bridging of the gap between others and the usual suspects for podiums (possibly the odd win even). The days of the sport being about prototype, cutting edge development are long gone and it has been about viewer entertainment since......closer racing and results makes for better entertainment!
