MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi

Great job by Rossi especially from starting on the second row and being in 10th earlier in practice. It looked at first that Lorenzo would run away and Marquez and Pedrosa would hunt him down then pass him later. But it was the opposite and Rossi got a good start from the second row then taking the lead from Lorenzo then holding it much longer than I thought he could. Then you had Marquez bumping into everyone with unsafe pass maneuvers to take the lead. When he took the short cut through that turn he should have been penalized for it. Nevertheless it looked like Pedrosa could get the better of him but he doesn't have the na-ds to dive inside to take the lead unlike his teammate who dives in not caring if he almost knocks anyone down. He needs someone to rough him up and even knock him down if pulls these type of inside passes but so far no seems brave enough to return the favor.

MotoGP » Rossi fired-up for 'fantastic' Catalunya

Guna will I'm a big Rossi fan as he approached Marquez at the last race and was slightly under 1 second from him he had a chance to reduce the gap even more but couldn't. While your theory regarding the slipstream Marquez got from Lorenzo is plausible it appeared that Rossi hit a wall in either the bike not being able to get that extra or himself not being able or willing to push harder. Tires, fuel economy, slip stream, who knows, but hopefully Rossi knows. It was disappointing to see Rossi go backwards at that point. If he would have stayed within 1 second or less to the end I would have been more impressed.

MotoGP » Rossi fired-up for 'fantastic' Catalunya

Glad to hear Rossi is fired up but it's going to take more than just a feeling. He needs to push harder, lean harder and fight harder if he really wants to win. Because Jlo and Marquez are willing to squeeze that extra ounce out of themselves and their bikes. That all said, I think coming in 2 seconds behind in the last race is an improvement but if Rossi really wants to challenge these two lads he needs to squeeze a couple extra 10ths each lap to have a chance to win. Is Rossi capable, yes but will he that's the question we'll see if he can answer.

MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

I'm a big fan of the Island race as it's an amazing to see these brave lads going full tilt on the public roads. It's a great race but has it's darkside. I know it's a cliche but the riders are not forced to ride it. That said, when anyone crashes and particularly those that die they leave a whole or heavy hearts especially for their families and friends but even fans feel the pain of loss. However, I do believe that Redding has the right to share his opinions whether you share them or not. Condolences to Scott and the victims family and friends. Best wishes to all competitors at the IOM for good results and safe races.

WSBK » Melandri bounces back with ‘much needed’ double

Good race by the Aprilia boys but surprised that Guintoli made so many mistakes when Melandri caught up and passed him in both races but especially the second race. I agree with others that this race is probably different than other tracks as this one suited the Aprilia and riders with experience on it. In the second race I thought the Kawi's would have been more of a factor than they were. Will they resume the previous order of things at the next race? Probably so.

MotoGP » Suzuki concludes Phillip Island MotoGP test

I'm sure cost is a factor in renting a facility to do testing and too bad for the poor weather. Hopefully they'll have better luck at other test facilities. It will be interesting to see how the Suzuki does at its wild card entries. Anyone know what races they'll be in this year? I wouldn't be surprised next year if they'll be fighting with Ducati and even beating them at certain tracks. Hopefully we'll see more manufacturers get into the series in 2016 when more rule changes and new tires occur.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Marquez should try to win every race

Aussie I found it curious to that as Rossi went from 10th to 3rd you'd expect him to push to cut the gap to P1 &2 but he couldn't and why? Your explanation and tires. As it was only a few laps to get to third the tires shouldn't have been too much of an issue but at hot temps and pushing the tire edges it's possible of some tire degradation. But fuel consumption makes even more sense unless Rossi backed off an figured to come in 3rd and not bin it.
