MotoGP » de Angelis excited for MotoGP return


Stuey99: Not too sure many of the riders on the track will be overly excited.
Well, hopefully he's matured a bit, and keeps any recklessness in check. He is capable of good results, and I'm sure he's won half a dozen races over the years, give or take a couple, maybe even challenged for a title...He should (in theory) be able to come straight in a do a worthwhile job on the FTR.

MotoGP » Rossi: Concentration, studying every corner…


Rossi wants to win, and he seems to have a new lease of life. However, Pedrosa and Lorenzo also want to win, and there is the small matter of Marquez to overcome. I'm sure VR will give another good account of himself, but unless Marquez either crashes, makes a setup error, or makes some other big mistake, it's very hard to see anyone beating him at the moment. The Honda is strong in every way, and Marquez has the confidence that goes with making every choice a winner. But if Marc stumbles, the other three will run right over him (figuratively speaking)...Rossi might then come out on top.

MotoGP » Modest Brno expectations for in-form Redding


raju: second rider should be a guided young talent and it has to be scot redding and not Miller ...Maverick as per me is entering too soon without proving enough in Moto-2...
I don't know where you got this information, but there are strong rumours that Suzuki will do a deal with Aleix (who couldn't accurately be described as inexperienced) and Vinales. Vinales, without having dominated Moto2, has shown that he is a hot property. Colin Edwards is retiring. For whatever reason, Suzuki is not looking to RDP to take one of the rides. He may continue on as test rider, or, he may take another role. The Suzuki in tests with published results has achieved lap times that are comparable to the Honda Proddies. They need to do better than that. Maybe Aleix can do it. He has done well in CRT and Open Yamaha so far. Miller is linked to Honda, and much press from people allegedly "in the know" claiming that it will happen. It is called "silly season" for good reason,

MotoGP » Modest Brno expectations for in-form Redding


...cont. and I hope someone is looking after his interests. Numerous reports link Miller to a Honda proddy ride with LCR, or maybe Gresini. He seems to have the X-factor, and his results last year made the Honda look much better than it was. He could well be unbeatable on the 2014 Honda Moto3 bike, and Honda apparently wants him. Dorna apparently does too, "to boost Australian MotoGP TV ratings". Passport motivation. One article suggested that the complications are that Miller is sponsored by Red Bull, while LCR has Cal riding for Monster, and Gresini is sponsored by Go and Fun...sponsors in a team like to be exclusive, so it will be entertaining to watch. So he appears to be a pawn in a political game. I hope it works out for him. We will see soon enough.

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


People seem to forget that the biggest change this year was in the revised Bridgestones. Yamaha refined software to get the fuel to last, which they did. Both Rossi and Lorenzo had issues with the tyres. Honda might have tweaked fuel usage, but they got the bike working with the tyres, or maybe Marquez felt good with the bike as it was. Maybe they were lucky, or maybe the conspiracy theorists are right, and Dorna directed Bridgestone to build tyres for Marquez :) Either way, Dani has struggled a lot more this year. But ifs and buts don't win races. The Honda is probably a better bike package, but the advantage isn't as stark as the results show. Marquez is the X-factor in this show.

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...


Huskymick:
TrueFan: Back on topic... “...But it will be so difficult to win every race" - Marc Marquez. Interestingly, you can bet on this... William Hill is paying odds of 7/4 for the clean sweep, Bwin a bit better at 14/5. Not great odds considering that there are still six races remaining, so the bookies aren't as pessimistic about his chances.
8 races if I'm not wrong
You're not wrong. I can't do arithmetic today.

MotoGP » Marquez expecting ‘strong’ Yamaha challenge


"Marc Marquez says he expects Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo to pose a challenge to his MotoGP superiority as the series heads back to Europe for the Czech Grand Prix at Brno" Well he can hardly say that he thinks it will be a pushover, can he? The fact is, team YFR will be trying everything to upset his game plan, and would be very motivated to ruin his party, no matter what PR spin they present. Dani will be pretty determined to take it up to him too. Yamaha track? Not too long ago it was Michelin track or Bridgestone track. Now they're all Bridgestone. Bring on Brno...
