MotoGP » Lorenzo: MotoGP is crazy sometimes!

Raceroad good points about race slicks in the rain but if he would have not crashed and won everyone would have said he's the second coming floating on the water and such. Plus with his sizeable lead he has room to take risks as long as he doesn't get injured. Also as he's young these type of mistakes will happen. I give him a pass on this mistake but as he's fairly smart I'd guess the next time a dry to wet race occurs he'll think twice to press his luck.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

I believe the shredded tires would be full wet material as it should handle water better. (Smiley Face)

MotoMarc: I'd suggest very low curbs on the corners followed with a little tarmac ( allow rider correction then return to the track)
Sounds well worth a try, with the curbs progressively corrugated as in my earlier comment.
then the shredded tire runoff material.
Not quite so sure about shredded tyre, but I can't pinpoint why. Would the shredded tyre be Slick, full wet, or intermediate compound ? (Smiley Face).

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

Astroturf seems dangerous but so does a hard surface as runoff. Gravel, sand or how about shredded tires as runoff material. With sufficient depth it could slow the bike and provide a softer landing area for the rider. Issue is would that work for race tracks that also have auto races? I'd suggest very low curbs on the corners followed with a little tarmac ( allow rider correction then return to the track) then the shredded tire runoff material.

MotoGP » Espargaro: We were a little cleverer than the rest

I agree with others that by the way he raced last year I thought he deserved a satellite bike but the Forward Yamaha isn't bad and that team does a good job of making it perform well. Good on Aleix for the wet race strategy as it paid off. I think Suzuki will have a good rider in Aleix. If Suzuki teams him up with a veteran that's fast that will be good to help them improve.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

I understand Rossi's eagerness to get ahead of Pedrosa to run down Jlo and Marquez but with the track being wet on the edges he should have known better. It didn't appear that Pedrosa hit the brakes (but I'll check the tap to see if that was case) at the last second causing Rossi to go off or crash into Pedrosa. Glad Rossi is okay and that he's looking forward to the next few races But he should be a bit more careful. Instead of Jlo winning it could have been Rossi. Nevertheless, what is promosing is that Rossi seems not only willing but able to challenge and in the next few races we'll see to what extent.
