MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo race potential equal to mine


Rossi is traditionally not a good qualifier but when you have guys like Jlo, Marquez and previously with Pedrosa that like to jump up front and create a gap he can't fight through the crowd and catch up to someone who's created a gap.

matt liddy: while the lap times do show that rossi's pace has been comparable to lorenzos, lorenzo was in the lead and only had to push as much as he needed to control the gap. Rossi has never been a strong qualifier, so i dont really see that changing over night, but gone are the days when he had a big bag of talant in reserve over the opposition.

MotoGP » New Yamaha chassis for Rossi and Lorenzo


Good to hear but will that lead to Lorenzo getting even more of his jack rabbit starts. Rossi needs to up his game otherwise Lorenzo is going to create a gap. Rossi needs to win and be able to get on Lorenzo's back wheel immediately and pass him relentlessly when JLo is pushing his hardest in order to break him. I'd love to see that happen. Because once that happens Jlo will go back to blaming the bike.

MotoGP » Rossi: Lorenzo race potential equal to mine


Race pace is not the issue as Rossi has shown he does similar lap times to the front runners it's all about the start. Rossi tends to start at 2-4 row and usually gets swallowed up and needs to work his way through the pack while JLo jumps to the front (as he usually starts on the front row) and creates a gap as the other front row guys basically let him by without much of a battle. Then as Rossi starts moving through the pack Jlo has amounted a several second gap to second. When Rossi arrives to 2nd place he's spent his tires and can't push any harder. Last race was a prime example Rossi was about to get to about one second to Jlo but at that point Jlo has conserved enough tire to maintain a safe gap without pushing too hard.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo, Marquez react to Biaggi comeback


Great to hear Biaggi will race in a couple of events with WSB as they should could use some infustion as it's just a Kawi Factory race. But that said being away for a few years does require some time to get reacclimated and to regain that speed and racing mentality. But if anyone can it sure is Biaggi. I hope he does great and while it's a long shot put pressure on the Kawi boys. It would have been better to see him helping Aprilia at MotoGP by taking one of those bikes for one underperforming rider you know the one.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


Jack it's not age if that's what you're thinking. He's traditionally not a good qualifier and doesn't like to make jack rabbit starts as he wants to get the tires settled before he starts to push. He may not want to go crazy at the start of race to avoid crashing as well. The main point is he needs to make changes to be able to get to the front sooner.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are very worried!


He should be worried as he needs to improve his qualifying and early starts. Starting in 3rd row or worse and having a bad start only makes catching up to the front that much harder and burning up the tires while doing so. But the negative aside I like his hard charging ways during the race. However seeing Marquez bolt from far back toward the front was amazing and a bit reckless but that's part of win or bin it mentality.

MotoGP » Rossi: Yamaha, Honda, Ducati almost at same level


Agree with Rossi that the top three bikes are very close. But also agree with others that Ducati should have given up all advantages to play on level field. Ducati has tried to get an upper hand in WSB for years claiming their twins couldn't compete against 4's without more CC's. Back to Rossi, he needs to improve his qualifying and starting as he has too much catching up to do and as someone aptly noted he uses too much tire to catch up the jack rabbit starters i.e. JL or MM. I think if Rossi can resolve his qualifying issues then he'll improve his odds of winning more conistantly. But that all said he'll have three very determined Spanish riders this race trying to win. It would be great to see Rossi win.

MotoGP » Honda launches MotoGP road bike


I'm sure Honda will give Marquez a nice shinny "93" inspired addition just for him. As this is a special addition the sports kit should come included because I'm sure they'll be asking King's ransom for it. But more importantly when is Honda going to provide a new Fireblade!!! Talk about a bike that's a we bit long in the tooth.
