MotoGP » Pedrosa poised to pass Barros on all-time points list


Barros had decent bikes. As well as being a factory rider at Suzuki to a title winning team-mate, he also had many a year on the Gresini and Pons satellite bikes when the NSR was all conquering and you could win on a satellite bike. Then he had 2004 at Repsol Honda on a bike Rossi had just walked to two world titles on. You could argue he raced against some serious opposition - Schwantz, Doohan, Criville, Robert and Rossi. But you could say the same of Pedrosa. Having said that, these points totals tables mean nothing. Of course you are going to have a lot of current riders in the list, they do more GPs now per season than ever before, and the top guys race for longer. Doesn't really mean anything.

Sportscars » Olympic hero Sir Chris Hoy to race in British GT


bikenutter: This will be interesting to follow. Is it possible to teach someone what some would argue is instinct.
Why you assume he doesn't have that instinct already? Just because he chose a career in cycling doesn't mean he isn't very talented behind the wheel of a car. Clearly it's a interest he's been harbouring for long time, it's just likely that he had to (understandably) put his cycling career first.

MotoGP » Six of the Best: Jeremy Burgess inspired MotoGP wins


Very good article, nice to see something different, thanks crash.net. Although I would point out, in your write up of 1997, that although Doohan was certainly blowing Criville's mind with his early season form on the 'screamer', Alex's season was effectively over with his practice crash at Assen. The way it was written suggested Criville's form dropped off and he slumped to 4th in the championship, but he didn't. He was the best of the rest, but for a very nasty injury.
