MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP


Herewego, I agree this had to be the most exciting races for me this season. Partly because Rossi started back in sixth or so and made his way to the front to battle with Jlo for awhile but mainly because of all the drama with drops. Not saying seeing riders crash is a good thing which it isn't and thankfully none of the riders who crashed got hurt. But having them drop out did add intrigue into who got what place down the line.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP


BJR you miss the point. There is no doubt that Honda was/is the best bike out there and no doubt that Marquez has been amazing. But you have to give the Yam boys credit for pushing harder and Yamaha team credit for improving their bikes a bit. Yes a couple of races would have had different results if Marquez or Pedrosa didn't crash or get hit but that's racing. Just like when the Yamaha guys crash that makes it easier for the Honda guys, get it.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP


While the win was great no doubt the battle and win over Jlo was even better especially seeing where Rossi started. I'll know that some will say that Marquez crashing gifted Rossi the win which I'd say no to but Rossi also wasn't lucky in that Crutchlow could have helped him if he didn't crash. Jlo benefited from Cal's mistake. Even though Marquez crashed out I give the kid credit for pushing hard even when he doesn't have to.

MotoGP » Marquez: Chance to try things for 2015


Shouldn't there be a rule to prevent a totally new bikes scheduled for the next year from being used in a current season. In this case it appears the engine rule is preventing Honda (or other teams) from using next years bike this year to get an early start on next years development especially for no designs and technology. Marquez notes that this year's engine doesn't fit next year's chassis so it can't be used in remaining rounds to further develop it for next season. Nevertheless, isn't that why they allow manufacturers to test next year's new bikes at given practices.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It’s personal!


No doubt Lorenzo has been just a bit faster than Rossi since the summer break. But Rossi is not far off and if he continues to push a bit more without making any mistakes he can hold off Jlo and Pedrosa. It won't be easy as all three will be pushing hard as they're essentially dead even at the moment in points. In the end it will be between the Yam boys for second as I don't think Pedrosa has the heart to challenge unless he gets the early jack rabbit lead. I know the haters always try give Rossi no credit or chance but he has just as good a chance as the other two challenging for second in the championship. Go Rossi!!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It’s personal!


Serious, the haters would never admit and even some Rossi fans wouldn't admit he's had a better season than most envisoned. Many haters were calling Rossi over the hill at 4th place last season, many said he never win another race, many said he wouldn't beat his teammate or ever come close to beating Marquez. He's done pretty good for an Old Timer.

MotoGP » Fifth quickest Rossi 'in a little pain'


Lance I agree it is a big deal as you noted Rossi and most racers use one or two fingers for braking and especially being his index finger that is crucial. I give Rossi credit for doing as well as he did and for not using pain killers. But as he's only doing a few laps in practice then qualifying my guess it won't bother him too much but at race distance/pace it may be an issue. However Rossi like other top athletes have to deal with performing at high levels with some injuries or discomfort at times. No matter what I know Rossi will give it his best shot as he always does.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: A great day


While I agree that Honda going away would be a problem I not sure if they'd pull out of the lower Motogp classes. If Honda pulled out of the top class that may not be a horrible thing. Yes in terms of money they throw around it would be but in terms of opening up the competition it would give team like Ducati, Suzuki, Aprilia, et. al. more opportunities to compete for the top prize leaving only Yamaha as a team to shoot at. Without Honda around I think that Yamaha would probably settle to keep their technology closer to the remaining factories instead of fulll throtttle in keeping with a giant like Honda.
