MotoGP » Smith eyes top satellite kudos in Texas


Insidejob: He, like Cal, has the bike to podium with. It's time he upped his aspirations.
He's reverted to PR speak.... with good reason. Can you imagine how well it would be received on here if he said "I'm going to go for the podium this weekend..." If he says it, he'd be accused of not having anything to back it up (fair enough, except for the level of vitriol he'd get). If he said it and did it, they'd cry foul conspiracy because better riders had "problems"...like at PI. If he said it and didn't make the podium they'd only be happy with his immediate execution. No doubt he has the aspirations...he's just been coached not to voice them to the idiot public. Good luck to Cal and Bradders.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


On the plus side, Stoner keeps his record of being the only rider ever to win at every track he raced at in the premier class over his career. The only current rider able to equal that record (and likely to) is Marquez. I couldn't see Stoner coming back (without full preparation) and competing over race distance, and more so now that the field is more competitive down the order. It's better to use a test rider or an up-and-comer with a mindset that is hungry to impress, or toe the company line (a la Jonathan Rea riding Stoner's bike under instructions to "have fun, but don't crash it or spend an engine").

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


Tetley: Prof X, Yearby 23. ...honoured... privileged . Those with overblown self-image think that .. hurrumph, hurrumph, blah, blah,blah...
Tetley, the semantic distinction you describe may well be correct, but only grammar nerds care. You obviously spent some time pedantically learning the intricate difference between these two terms in your youth. Stoner spent his learning how to ride a motorcycle. From where I sit, he did that very well, and only a certain group of fans care about any other alleged shortcomings in "non-riding areas" he may have. The rest of us don't care. To state the obvious, this is a motorcycle forum, which proves you value his major skill. Think about that for a moment... It's like and Elvis fan criticising John Lennon because he couldn't ride a motorcycle...

MotoGP » Smith eyes top satellite kudos in Texas


SmokinHaddock:
Jakel: ... BSB? ...
... BSB is being lead by a guy who many years ago didn't do as well at GP level as Smith is doing now, albeit he is someone I respect hugely. ...
You can't compare Bradders with SB on a like-for-like basis. Shaky did well on some pretty ordinary rides in the premier class, and has a long history as one of the standout British riders of the last 15 years or so. More importantly, SB has clear cred as a former staff writer on the legendary Fast Bikes mag - my personal favourite. It was like Top Gear without the "merchant banking"... As for Bradders, he did well at Qatar. Give him a chance. This year, a top 10 finish is pretty impressive - for anyone.

MotoGP » Marquez: I want to put Qatar behind us


Evolutions:
Yearby23: Evolution(s)
Don't Live In Past! Live in Present and Present Is Vr Dominance! :)
What rubbish... VR won fair and square in Qatar, but he was hardly dominant.... His practice race pace was on par with Marquez, but his fastest laps were slightly back level... He chose the hard tyre for the race, and that proved decisive, but mainly because Marquez made a mistake... Without a doubt, it was a great race by Rossi, but if you think he dominated, you need to stop smoking whatever it is you're smoking. Sorry, but there's so much rubbish written about VR on here.

MotoGP » Dovizioso 'can't wait' to put GP15 to test again


Who cares about top speed? MotoGP is won by the rider with the fastest average lap time...the reset doesn't count. Anyway, go Dovi!! I want to see the red bikes compete. I just wish they had the same tyre and fuel allocations to make it a fair and relevant comparison. I don't support the stupid engine freeze rule invented by Honda and Yamaha to preserve their advantages, but the tyres and fuel should be equal. Anyway, Qatar was a cracking race, and the final countdown to Austin is now on, so here's hoping for another good one!
