MotoGP » Marquez beats his elders in Indy contest


Makes you laugh everyone slating Rossi saying that he was this amount of time of Marquez, Et al, and that others fell of the pace insinuating that they came back to him, Rather than say he looked after his tyres better which was the real reason why he CAUGHT the 3 in front! Did anyone watch the moto2 race and say the same about Tito Rabat? Na thought not. I personally watched it and applauded Tito for having the brains to conserve his tyres. Don't think you could say the same about Lorenzo. The only reason Rossi was slower than Jorge in the last few laps was because he was caught up in his battle to wrestle 4th place from the two in front and their slow pace. What was Jorge's reason for falling so far behind MM and DP?

MotoGP » Marquez beats his elders in Indy contest


@ B.Andy No one is disputing the fact that his qualy performances have been the reason for his downfall, But when analyzing something you need to be both constructive and in control of the facts. Irrespective of your opinion as that does not matter. In black and white it shows you where he lost time and how he made most of that back up. Crutchlow didn't nearly beat him as you like to put it, It was merely Rossi that mugged Crutchlow and was beaten. Real Rossi fans except his recent inadequacies. BTW are you Casey's brother by any chance? Just that I noticed a familiar tone in your writing.

MotoGP » Marquez beats his elders in Indy contest


@DB8 Yes you are right and Rossi's qualy this season has been poor and that does clearly hold him back in the race, Though whether he has it in him to win world championships again is doubtful and really as a Rossi fan that's what I ultimately want to see, If I can't see that, Then I would rather him retire with his reputation and dignity intact. He can still win races but what is the point in competing if you know deep down that on one of the best bikes you will not win another world championship. If JL and DP had not had their injuries where in the championship would he be points wise? Still 4th but a long way off. Just trying to be realistic guy's!

MotoGP » Marquez beats his elders in Indy contest


People quick to slate Rossi and the gap to Jorge, But bear in mind for a few laps he was behind Hayden and that cost him over 4 seconds and then there was the time he lost behind Smith and after he passed he was over 6 secs behind, So you could also say he was in relative terms without the hold ups about 8 secs behind at the flag, Of course the result shows different but you got to look further than your nose rather just say "Ha ha Rossi finished blah blah amount of time behind jorge"

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test MotoGP Honda


I for one would like to see Casey make a return to Moto gp racing next year, Even though I am a massive Rossi fan. I am not a fan of Casey, Never warmed to him and he has the personality of a wet sponge, I like charisma and showmanship in a sportsman, But I can not deny that Casey has an immense talent and imo is the best Aussie I have seen on a top end gp bike and yes better than my first gp hero Doohan. For purists of the sport can you imagine..Rossi, Marc, Jorge, Dani AND Casey racing together!! It would be fantastic to see, Especially if Yamaha get their bike upto the pace of the Honda's..Would it possible for Honda to run 3 works bikes again? Would be a moment for history to see all these top guy's on top bikes...I don't care much for the Rossi vs Stoner mouth offs. My opinion is Rossi is the best of the best but you can not deny how good casey is.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'You broke my balls over Stoner pass!'


@ Skippy where did you see Rossi moaning about THAT move? He was making reference to the fact that suppo said he should of been disqualified in 08 for the same move he had done on him by Marquez. If anything Rossi was appreciative in his acknowledgment of the move...Like I said either two wrongs don't make a right or Rossi was right in the first place....I will go with the latter and Kudos to marc for having the balls to go toe to toe or paint to paint and make audacious moves on Rossi and Lorenzo!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'You broke my balls over Stoner pass!'


You can't have it both ways Livio suppo! Either two wrongs don't make a right or Rossi was right in the first place to make the move on Stoner? Livio is full hypocrisy. I actually thought both moves were legitimate, Given the situations at the time. If anything maybe Marcs was a little too bold given the fact that it was early in the race and that his bike was quicker than Valentinos and would of passed anyway. I wonder what Casey thought about it? That move Rossi done on him in 2008 broke him mentally and at that point I knew Rossi would win that Championship!!

MotoGP » Rossi happy with third consecutive podium


For me today, There were two riders that stood out! The prodigy and the master. Marc rode a faultless race and is making the most of injuries to his rivals, He is quick...very quick and his confidence is rising, Race by race and should be taken very seriously for the championship, Underneath him he has the fastest bike and this is helping his cause. When you have a bike like he does, Then you can see that he can push as hard as he likes..This young man will break many records and is the future of Moto gp..No question about that. Rossi, On the other hand is at the other end of the spectrum, Clearly fighting against the wind regarding the Honda's but age seems to be no boundary and it seems he may well be turning back the clocks as well. I fully expected Rossi to lose out to Marc, Whilst in Bradl it seems was the suprise (well done to him). Rossi fought hard to keep a resurgent Bautista behind him and for me that was a sign that Rossi is showing the signs of returning to pre-Ducati days

MotoGP » US MotoGP, Laguna Seca - Warm-up


One thing is clear and something not many people have picked up on and that both the sax ring and Laguna seca are notorious Honda tracks and more often we are seeing quite a big disparity between Honda tracks and Yamaha tracks. Honda clearly have the better bike. The fact that only a fit Jorge is the only Yamaha that can REALLY mix it up with the Honda's tells me all I need to know. Vale has to start pushing both set-up and himself harder, More than he ever has done before. When Cal is starting to out pace and out race Rossi then It is clear that something has been lost. I hope that this is not the end for Vale and time will tell when he get's to tracks that favour the Yamahas more. Come on VR, Start pushing those Honda's!!
