MotoGP » KTM tap de Puniet and Luthi for RC16 testing duties


Along with everyone else involved, you'd have to say the Suzuki return to MotoGP has been a success, and RDP played a crucial role. Good call by KTM to hire him. His experience will be well worth there trouble. With Kallio, Tom Luthi and Hoffman, there's a good bank of experience to draw on. It will be nice if they can replicate their success in Moto3, although the competition at this level is a tad harder to crack.

MotoGP » Read, Gardner discuss Rossi, Marquez clash


Re-reading this, I'm amazed that these two legends of the sport could be so apparently ill-informed about the reason Rossi was penalised. It had nothing to do with the fact that Marquez actually crashed, and who finally turned into who, or whether Rossi "kicked" him. The penalty was entirely a matter of Rossi deliberately slowing down across the racing line, forcing Marquez to head off the track. That infringed the rules. You can't even do that in testing. It is irrelevant whether Marquez crashed or not. As others have said, Rossi started at the back of the grid because he was already carrying a penalty point. The aggregate of his points resulted in a back of the grid start. #FanningTheFlames

MotoGP » MotoGP has ‘never seen such big changes’


@guna Yamaha will still have an advantage in the corners, unless Ducati or Honda pull a miracle out of their kit bag. It has to do with the bike's geometry, being an in-line 4 versus a V4. The tyre change will make corner entry worse for everyone, but Yamaha will keep its advantage. If anything, the greater the percentage corner entry speed drop, the greater the potential advantage to the Yamaha, mitigated by any exit advantage the rear gives the others. Suzuki is the biggest threat to Yamaha's handling supremacy, because they've chosen the same engine layout.

MotoGP » Rossi: Disappointment after Valencia 'very big'


He sill hasn't figured it out. He was in a one on one fight to the end with Lorenzo. You never win a battle by starting a second war, like he did by making stupid claims to the press in Sepang about Marquez... Possible upside? not much, maybe just a bit of confusion. Possible downside? Marquez might come gunning for him. He did. Pretty obvious. That's why I have no sympathy for Rossi. He thought he could get away with it. Was Marquez "playing with him" in Phillip Island? Who cares. He can slow down for whatever reason. If Rossi is behind him, he has to pass him. Before Sepang, I still thought Rossi would win the championship. He only had to finish in front of Lorenzo once, maybe twice. I hoped he would. After I read what I felt were slanderous comments from him, I thought he'd lost the plot, and had no hope of winning. He just wasn't up to it.

MotoGP » Jack Miller breaks leg in Motocross incident


Although it would make much more sense to train on a flat dirt track, and push bike in the mountains, I seem to remember reading that Miller was a motocross racer before he switched to bitumen racing. Motocross is very physically demanding, so he might have seen it as good training. He was probably looking to get his jollies too. Unfortunately, you only get one shot at motogp glory, and you ought to give it your best shot. I think he has plenty of riding talent, but it remains to be seen whether he can grow in other areas to become the full package. Looks like a pig of a break to me, but he won't know about the really ugly side of it until arthritis sets in...in 20 or so more years. Good luck Mr Miller.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang comments changed nothing


My New Year's resolution was to ignore this BS, but, since I commented on other Yamaha 2016 launch articles re-igniting this tired and pointless debate, I might as well wade back in. I'll at least attempt a different angle, since there's no point whatsoever in discussing the futility of Rossi's sad and embarrassing bleating... Crash.net is obviously in the business of providing racing related content to its market niche in order to attract advertisers, who pay them for page impressions. No issue with that. However, this subject matter is really unrelated to the ads for motorcycle events, technology products and financial products that I seem to be served with. Where are the ads for soap powder? Soap opera was invented selling soap. Please crash, put up some soap ads...
