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 » MotoGP Misano - Race Results

Well, that race was all about Rossi. He was aggressive early, and his body language just looked more positive. Even when Marquez closed on his, Rossi actually looked more comfortable. We all saw what happened, a tiny front end lose from MM, and down he went. Game over then and there. Lorenzo was fast, but it was all about Rossi. I'm happy for him, but I might give a rest for a while until his more enthusiastic fans gush it out...meanwhile, I'll quietly enjoy what was a great race. I really don't get how people can say that MotoGP is boring!

MotoGP » Dovizioso: We're getting closer all the time

Dovi spent much of the race hot on the heels of Pedrosa, and finished the race quite hot on his heels still. Silverstone was similar. That's a marked contrast to the beginning of the season, where Dovi was typically impressive early, until his tyres were cooked for edge grip. Testing track time would help get data for settings, provided that conditions were similar, but general problems with the bike that cause it to chew tyres out seem to have improved. The things that matter for edge grip are power delivery, geometry - including gyroscopics, and suspension settings. In short, substantial areaws of bike design. If power delivery is too rough, additional fuel won't help race results, and nor will soft tyres. If the bike suffers from understeer, the bike will try to run on when the rider wants it to turn - and the tyres will give up rubber on the contact patch in play.

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.
