MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins

TalentFan, you can say what you like about having the data analysts, but with a guy like Stoner producing the test data, compared to a "normal" test rider, there's bigger potential advantage right there, and no need to distract your factory riders - not that it would matter much for Marquez now, playtime has already started for him. Of course last time he "tested" most of the days were washed out, so it's only an advantage if he's on the pace, and the weather's good...

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins

Matt2: ...
... While Stoner on form was astonishing, after 2 years of loafing around on a river bank and playing with RC cars, his skills are going to diminish quite a lot.
Absolutely. When Hailwood returned to racing after retiring at about the same age as Stoner, he made an ill-fated comeback at the Isle of Man TT after 12 years, and he was seconds off the pace, because that's what happens to these guys... Oh, wait! He blitzed the field...on a Ducati...haha. I can't see Stoner coming back to racing anytime soon, but if he rides a race bike in 10 years time, he'll still be very fast. He doesn't know how to ride any other way.

MotoGP » Fastest Lorenzo unhurt in 'violent' fall

Garcia: It's not very often that you see Lorenzo lose the front. Weather reports saying Sat and Sunday will be a bit warmer over there, so maybe the things will work better. It's good that they have the option to run the extra soft instead if they're are not happy with the assimetric.
You beat me to it on the weather...Should improve by Sunday, and they'll have a warm race.

MotoGP » MotoGP Australia - Free Practice (2) Results

TrueFan: Pretty much working on race pace and set up at this point. Lorenzo and Marquez both cranking out laps in the 1:29s and low 1:30s seemingly at will. Hopefully Rossi will dial it up too - he's not far off.
FP2 and you are still HOPEFULL of Rossi dialing it up. MM is a freak, and JL fell off. Have faith.
Well, in fairness, none of them are running at a pace that ought to qualify on the front three rows, and last year's race pace was in the 28s and low they're really just getting their setup dialed. No doubt it will get busy towards the end of FP3. Rossi is quite close (consistently) on the timesheets so far, and yes, I'm hopeful!

MotoGP » Leitner leaves as Dani Pedrosa’s crew chief

Motojunky: He will have to finish 2nd this year (or upcoming years) to equal a great rider who was runner up 4 times. Only us old fella's know who that was, because true fans don't just remember the winners. lol.
Im guessing Mamola, and I was born in 88.
In which case, you missed out on seeing him duck into the pit lane entrance to do a stoppie in front of the grandstand - during the race, and while he was in second - and rejoining the race!!! Kenny Roberts (his team manager) was not amused...haha. He was riding a Yamaha at the time, so it was '86 or '87 - I kept a framed copy of the photo in my office for a few years. It always made me smile, and reminded me not to take anything too seriously.
