MotoGP » Valentino Rossi leaves Sepang on a high


It's early days so fans shouldn't get too excited as this is only the first test. But that said, it's encouraging to see him have a good test and to see him happy and comfortable on the bike is good news. I like that he's comfortable enough to modify his riding style a bit to help the bike. Lets hope this carry's through the following tests and into the races. If that occurs it shoiuld be a good season to watch.

MotoGP » Jubilant Aleix Espargaro has Open podium aim


By his results last year I thought this kid was impressive that's why I was surprised that someone didn't give him a satellite bike so I'm not surprised he's doing well on the M1 engined bike. Again while it's only a first test and things will settle after a few more tests and races it's good to see Espargaro doing well and let's hope he can get close to the factory and satellite boys to make things more interesting this year.

MotoGP » Marquez edges closer to Stoner's Sepang benchmark


Truefan I thought like many that Marquez would be fast but not this fast and in terms of getting comfortable on the bike I thought it would be quick. It seems with all the electronic aids allow new riders in the class to get comfortable very fast on the bikes where it would take a year or two or more now it's a matter of months and in MM's case even less. I'm surprised as well that he hasn't hit the deck yet at least not seriously again a testament to the technology and I guess his skill. I'm sure a decent crash with some injuries will begin to slow him down.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden: If I'm honest, it's demoralising


Question is how much less hp does the honda sale bike have compared to their satellite or factory bikes with pneumatic versus steel/aluminum? My guess would be 10 to 20 less hp. That could translate to 1+ minutes slower per race. But others noted that was kind of understood as these bikes were never intended to compete directly with the factory bikes, they're intended as grid fillers. Did Yamaha give (sell) last years spec engines to private teams is that the difference in seeing Esparago is doing so well?

MotoGP » 'Another positive day' for top Yamaha Rossi


Good couple of days of testing for Rossi but he did okay in the start of testing last year as he noted so he still has a lot of work to do to improve and to stay close to the top riders. But that all said it's encouraging and lets hope he keeps improving. If he ups his game it will be interesting to see him battle with Marquez and that will make it a season to watch. However, I still think the Honda's have the edge in technical ability hence why you see three of them near the top.
