MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


I think this kid could do well. He might need a PR coach if he's going to win the fans over, but the way he rides, he could do very well. I like having some controversial riders in the paddock. It shakes up the status quo. Good luck to him. It seems like a big step, and it is, so for his sake, I hope it works out for him. A couple of decades ago, people like Eddie Lawson, Wayne Gardner, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz and Mick Doohan came to the 500s without ever passing through the "feeder" classes, and they did quite well, thank you. Times have changed, so I hope this young kids minders have done their arithmetic.

MotoGP » 2015 MotoGP rider line-up so far


VKal: Ducati Team (Factory class) Andrea Dovizioso (Confirmed) Andrea Iannone (Confirmed) I thought they have opt for Open class for extra fuel, engine and engine mods?
Dorna re-classified Ducati as a factory bike that hasn't won for two seasons. They call it "Factory 2". It's a factory bike with Open Class "restrictions", as in, they're allowed 12 motors per season, and are not subject to the design freeze that Honda and Yamaha face. They have the other benefits of open class, but if they are successful, their advantaes are closed off.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Haha! I thought I'd get a reaction with that! RFS Just because I mention Stoner doesn't mean I'm a fan, although I have great regard for his talent. If you were to follow my posts, I've supported VR this year, less so last year, and not very much when he was at Ducati. I was very happy that he won, and pointed out some little known Rossi facts (new records) in this thread...I'm only having some sport with a section of his fans...the delusional ones - and even then, I don't really mind them enjoying the sun. You'd also note that I have defended Marquez from the "it's the bike" BS this year, yet I panned some of his dodgy moves last year. Does that mean I'm his fan or a hater? MotoMarc - I wasn't having a pop at Rossi fans enjoying the moment...just some over the top comments...all in fun. Enjoy his win, he deserves it. Brain - you have me confused with TalentFan. I have quite a different position to him, particularly on electronics and prototype racing. Evolution, yes, my post was

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Fergus Anderson won the 500cc GP at Montjuic (Spain) at the ripe age of 44 and 237 days Jack Findlay won the 500cc GP at Salzburgring at 42 Les Graham won the 500cc GP at Montjuic at 41 ...and a number of guys have won GPs in their late 30s. Valentino Rossi has the widest spread between his first premier class win and his most recent - 12 years from my calculations!

MotoGP » Marquez explains Misano mistake


One small mistake in a race - without injury - does not make for a catastrophe. History will record that Marc Marquez won the MotoGP world championship in 2014 in a dominant performance over the coiurse of that season, when he was never challenged. Rossi rode a great race, and achieved a well deserved win. His fans are just gushing, and they don't get to do that often these days, but there is no need to try to belittle Marquez. He is the World Champion, and will go back to back. This race was nothing more than a blip for him.
