MotoGP » Ben Spies retires from racing

To judge a rider like Ben Spies during a prolifically horrible bad year (2012) when many things went wrong, mostly not within Ben's control, is short sighted. As Ben says, his career is 20+years long. One must view his career with a much longer lens than 1 fateful year. Best of luck Ben!! I hope your injuries fully recover and you consider a comeback (minus the Ducati machinery of course.)

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'maybe contact', Marquez 'it was exciting'

The difference being MM admitted there was a light touch w DP (if Honda protected sensor cable, it's a non issue due to no crash) Today, JLO executes heavier contact on MM and lies about it. Yet later, when passed by MM on exit and MM is in front AND has the line,mYES you HAVE TO roll off throttle. That's racing and nothing dirty about it. If your behind a rider, it's YOUR responsibility to get around the rider in front, end of story. I don't mind the bumping, it's actually entertaining (neither did MM), I just don't care for the lies & hypocracy. JLO needs Dr Mir to do a skirtectomy on on the boy and then transplant a pair of acorns on.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'maybe contact', Marquez 'it was exciting'

JLO makes it sooooo hard to like him. He was vitriolic at Jerez over MM contact. Complained about Aragon light touch w MM & DP. Now when asked it there was contact today in Sepang, "uhh, we passed each other 3 or 4 times, I felt no contact, clean racing until exit where MM gave me no room and I had to roll off." Vid clearly shows contact JLO running into MM on exit. And then later corner, if MM is ahead of JLO & has the line, which MM did, rider behind has to yield (racing 101). I liked JLO's sarcasm at press conference (when un-edited, it makes more sense ( full version of riders intro at Sepang)) But overall, he needs to clamp it and use his energies to work w engineers to improve the bike to give MM better battles and win Championships. But it won't be this yr.

MotoGP » Bradl surgery a success

Such a crock. Anathesia hasn't worn off yet, and they proclaim it a SUCCESS!!! Give it several weeks. No infectionn & the lad can walk with no pain, then strike up the band and make your proclamations. I do wish Bradl the best, sincerely. He broke his ankle and acted as if nothing happened. as the other side of the pillow.

MotoGP » Marquez: I knew the last lap would be the best

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I've got enormous respect for MM. His style is to find the limit of the pkg and the track surface available. That's what has got him to the envious position he's in and he's not changing the formula that works for him. Immense adoration for the Champion elect to NOT sandbag and shoot for 5th because it less risky & "enough points to win Championship". MM ROCKS!!!!!

MotoGP » Marquez: It would be interesting to ride with Stoner

For those of you who, "wouldn't let CS ride in PI because he retired,". Clearly, you've never run a business before and are eternally resigned to flipping burgers. Dorna is a business. JLO has accurately stated, it is a show. If it sells more tickets and raises the specter of the show and is an acceptable risk, then Dorna will not blink to allow whatever that is to increase revenue. CS competing at PI would DRAMATICALLY increase the drama that Dorna would delight in. The question that beckons is, will CS accept the offer? (Don't give me the, CS is scared, can't ride anymore BS.). VR, JLO, DP, MM all know the PI is Stoners domain, without question (top step, 6x consecutively) My $ says CS declines the offer and if he decides to comeback (I hope he does), it's on his own terms. For what it's worth, I hope I'm wrong, it would be delicioso to see CS & MM slug it out. Surely, JLO would pout, with CS taking Championship points away from JLO finishing in 3rd or 4th.
