MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests


"Stoner's introverted personality and probably his passport would never see him backed fully by Repsol & HRC" Yeh, why put up with giggles, fun and better results under MM when you could have stirn faces, moaning and lessor results under CS? Yeh, his passport would be a real problem for him, just look at the headache Miller had because of his passport....forced to spend another year in Moto3 to win the WC then 3 years in Moto2 proving he can adapt...oh wait? The reality is much more simple and rational, HRC want his feedback because he can push the bike 100% and Casey wants to ride by himself without all the bull that goes with the tour. Simple! Casey doesn't want to ride full time and HRC doesn't want the "atmosphere" Casey brings with him, in the team. They are scratching each other's backs at the moment and that's all.

MotoGP » Stoner to continue Honda MotoGP tests


Brain, MM is the worlds best rider (right now). MM has openly stated he wants to emulate and beat VR record so its clear who MM thinks is the worlds best (over all not right now). MM given the time, will become the best rider ever. VR came second in the 2014 WC so it's also clear who is the second best rider in the world (right now). At last glance CS hasn't raced for 2 years. My point? You still need a different pseudonym!

MotoGP » The MotoGP penalty points list


I think its a good idea for a number of reasons, 1 - You cannot go all kamakasi in the last few rounds (Jlo 2013 & Miller 2014) believing you have points to burn because they are cleared at years end. So you must ride responsibly from race one through to race 18 (or 19). 2 - It will "catch-up" with anyone who is simply unsafe in their riding as it doesn't re-set come years end. As for being toothless, I disagree. 4 points is whats needed to start feeling a little pain and 2 riders (Iannone & Miller) will start 2015 on 2. Miller's 2 were from one incident so the very next incident prior to June could see Miller peanalised via grid positions or worse (depending on the points allocated). It's not designed as a "shock and awe" system but as a "come one, we have told you a couple of times now, you are not listening, so here" system. My 2 cents....

MotoGP » VIDEO: MotoGP's next big young thing?


Good on the youngster (regardless of nationality). There is however a problem with this in my opinion. It used to be that riders make their way through the ranks and then top tier teams would select the best. More and more, teams are looking beyond current riders and now, it seems, at 10 year olds. And the probelm? Riders may have had till thier earley 20's to prove themselves worthy of a good ride. Now, if you haven't "proved" yourself by 16, 17 or 18 you have very little chance. Into the future....10, 11 and 12 wil become the cut-off age......very scary! The other part of the same problem is that kids change physically and mentaly through these teen years so someone showing promise at 12 may just be average come 18?

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


Well deserved! Vale proved a lot of people wrong and dismissed a lot of myths. He performed above expectations of not only the industry "know all's" but more importantly, his fans. This is why he out voted all in this poll. Just look at the results...MM did what was expected by most, he dominated and ran away with another title so why would he be voted the best? Jlo performed below expectation (even with 2 wins and finishing 3rd) so he was voted down accordingly. Dovi performed above expectations and was voted up accordingly. This is only a straw-poll but generally, people will vote according to how the guys performed according to the voters expectations. VR 2nd over all, 2 wins and 6 second places with 13 podiums over-all is much more than even his fans expected. Well deserved No. 1 spot on this poll.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


TwistedWrist29: Wow, its obvious A LOT of you who commented have never raced a bike on slicks and dealt with rain. They have zero traction in the wet, and when they let go, there is no warning. A million dollar bike on the ground, and possible injuries. I think he has every right to give his ideas for a solution. Trying to push in the rain on slicks is the sign of either an immature, stressed, desperate, or plain stupid racer. Jorge doesn't strike me as any of those. Trying to take a jab at his bravery makes some of you look so stupid when you look at the races he has done while injured, etc. You know, furthermore, a multiple world champion who basically never finishes a season below 3rd place really should listen to the wisdom of you fantastic analysts.
Those 2 who finished in front of him have not mentioned such a move? Do they not understand the risks like Jlo does? I would suggest the other 2 are now grinning from ear to ear:)

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


JedPB67:
Mountainbiker: Lorenzo has lost his bottle, its time for him to make way for a rider with a real desire to win in all conditions.
He won at Aragon in mixed/mostly damp conditions.
Because 4 others who were faster that day (VR, DP, MM & AI) all fell off. If the Jlo rule was in place that day it would have worked against him and he may well have finished 5th or lower! But either way, we know Jlo hasn't thought anout what he said other than "how can I minimise my disadvantage in the mixed conditions?" Apparently its easier to try and change the rules than look for mixed conditions and practice your butt off to improve both ability and confidence in those conditions!
