MotoGP » Marquez: Pressure has eased for record bid at Valencia


Although I'm not so interested in the "record", it was an emphatic win by Marquez after the problems he's had in recent races, and even more so after a start that was something less than you'd hope for from pole. Rossi looked like he could pull away once he got to the front, but Marquez stalked him and worked out where and when to make his move. After the start, he put in a flawless ride, and deserved to win.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


Great ride by Rossi. He looked really comfortable for most of the race, and even though Marquez had something extra, it wasn't much. I didn't expect Rossi to make the podium, so whatever he found in the morning warmup, it made a huge difference. Great ride. There's still a slim chance Lorenzo could take second with a win in Valencia, but only if Rossi finshes 4th or worse. My money is on Rossi from here.

MotoGP » Moto3: Vazquez wins - Miller, Marquez slug it out at Sepang


Great win by Vasquez, especially considering tha he still doesn't have a ride for next year. Miller showed his class to. Hard fought to the very end, and he's still in the championship - anything could happen in Valencia. Miller might surprise a few people who think he's been picked for his passport alone. He seems to have plenty of talent. Great ride by Danny Kent too...

MotoGP » Latest 2014 MotoGP Championship standings


Rossi would need to have a disaster in Valencia not to come second now. He really has had a great season after a few pretty ordinary ones. Another really strong ride today after a tough weekend. I've said it before - he never lost his skill...and he's not too old. It's a very impressive result for him. I thought he might actually pull off the win today for quite a few laps!

MotoGP » PICS: Pol Espargaro’s fiery Sepang fall


These photos don't tell the full story. They should show the pic of Scott Redding signalling him that he needs to check a serious problem (dropping oil all over the track)... Maybe Pol thought Scott was just playing mind games... No, that just doesn't pass the plausibility test. @Racefan26 Scott Redding warned Pol, but Pol couldn't see anything wrong, even though he could feel something was wrong...

MotoGP » Marquez surprised by blistering Sepang pace


Prof X has missed an obvious opportunity here, to point out that Marquez should enjoy this result while it lasts, but next year, the tyres will be reconstructed to suit the Yamaha, because Dorna would prefer Rossi to win more races. He's more popular than ....(fill in the politically correct blank)...and besides, he's a Bridgestone Ambassador. Maybe it's because that conspiracy theory (which is at least plausible, with some evidence to support it - albeit not exactly compelling), conflicts with the "Repsol effectively controls Dorna" conspiracy theory, which is a little more "challenging". Cat got your keyboard? The real unknown here is the weather for the race. If it's dry, Repsol 1-2. If it's anything else, then consider the deck to be randomly shuffled.
