MotoGP » 'Dream come true’ for Camier

Pleased to see Leon getting another crack at it. He did a good job at Indy, but only lasted a few laps in the race. At Brno, he hung in to claim a point! No, TF, he can't compete with the factory bikes, or the open Yamahas, but if he keeps improving, he can race with the other proddy Hondas. As Scott has demonstrated, size is not as big a disadvantage on these bikes as people think, although it would seem that the optimum weight is around 58-59 kgs, based on the results of Stoner and Marquez. Anyway, hopefully Leon has a great race weekend.

MotoGP » Smith: Signed, seamless, ready to deliver

Interesting to hear the areas of difference between the factory Yamahas and the Tech 3 bikes. You would always assume that they are slightly lower spec, but they are usually cagy about explaining it. I looked for BS off the line in Brno, and noticed that he got swamped, but then got distracted by the battle at the front, and trying to work out what was happening with Marquez. I'd like to see Smith get some good results. I once thought it might shut the haters up, but they seem almost addicted to it, so it will more likely just make them worse... Do it anyway, Bradders!

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo debut 2015 Yamaha

gongsin: ....
A V-motor has greater block rigidity enabling very high compression ratios without block distortion under load and resistance to torsional vibration. ...
I intrigued. How does the V-motor design create "greater block rigidity"? Rigidity is normally a function of block mechanical properties (hardness, shear strength etc), dimensions, alloy characteristics etc. Also, for an optimum compression ratio (for a given rev range), pressure resitance / gasflow factors versus ignition efficiency (and detonation control) and the like make sense. I hadn't heard that optimum varied by engine configuration. Care to expand? Thanks
