MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow ruled out of Argentina


rbr46: Dovi is riding really well, I think Cal could learn a few things from him. Firstly his attitude needs to improve. Dovi keeps quiet and gets on with the task in hand. Stop moaning every race weekend Cal.
Some people prefer the riders to speak frankly, some actually prefer their commentary soaked in sugar with a chocolate sauce. I'd rather hear the riders tell it like it is. How they ride matters more than on what they say. Rossi, as the master of spin, is very entertaining and clever, and adds colour to the sport, but if everyone spoke his PR savvy spiel, MotoGP would become a mere celeb-fest. There's only room for one Rossi at a time. Cal's fine. Sometimes he vents his frustration, and it may or may not be reasonable. At least he isn't boring. Let him heal.

MotoGP » 'In trouble' Lorenzo plots fight-back in Argentina


Codger: If Marquez gets too far ahead expect some rule changes, and then Honda sulking and threatening to quit. What will happen if Bridgestone mess it up for this race as well?
What's it got to do with Marquez getting too far ahead? Just expect rule changes. They are the only certainty in MotoGP... And Bridgestone? If it happens again, they'll review the data from the riders and explain that the tyres have performed according to the specification, and they will work with the riders to blah blah blah...and so on until the story dies due to reader fatigue.

MotoGP » ‘Argentina a big question mark’ says excited Rossi


All the riders have plenty to prove...but only three fit on the podium. Rossi has the skill to do it, and looks more confident so far this year. Whether he can get a set up that he is happy with, and then compete again, is all part of what makes this a pivotal weekend. They are all in the same boat. New track, minimal data. Blank sheets. Experience to get up to speed quickly versus the youth that doesn't know "what can't be done"... No-one will make it easy for him though, both Repsol Hondas will be fast, and I can't imagine JLo making it three out of three...I'm looking forward to it.

MotoGP » New challenge for Marquez, Pedrosa


We're only two races in. It will be good to watch, but it's not so easy to predict. Marquez just doesn't understand why some things are supposed to be impossible....good luck to him for that. So far, it's worked well. I look forward to his pre-race explanation as to why he shouldn't be considered the favourite, or even one of them...because "it will be very difficult".

MotoGP » Ben Spies - Q&A: Part 2


It's a pity that he can't race anymore, but that is the risk of a sport like MC racing. Back in the day, the price was too often higher. Hopefully, his shoulder will get sorted enough to have a normal life, and won't cause too much grief as the years roll on. Anyway, it was an interesting interview. I always like to read what these guys say when they are telling their version of a story that has been obfuscated by rumours. As long as you accept that is won't always be the truth, it likely gives some insight into the truth...at least from the rider's perspective.
