MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


Call me thick but I'm struggling to grasp the concept here - making it pay-tv only and thereby alienating 65% of your audience, using their own figures, is a good thing ? Boxing would surely be a good example: everybody I know, who had access to a telly, watched world championship boxing matches in the sixties, seventies and eighties, the champions, like Ali, Foreman, Frasier, Hagler etc. etc. were household names, now with the advent of satellite tv, pay-per-view, box office and who knows how many other money-grabbing scams, it's a minority sport ! I don't even know who the champs are in the different weight divisions today ! so less people watch but pay through the nose for the privilege, hardly the route to improving the likelihood of sponsorship.

MotoGP » Espargaro Forward farewell, no Edwards


Hugostiglitz3550: Analyst Bwahaaaaaaa haaaaaaa spit my juice out. Funniest thing I heard all day. A guy with 2 circumstantial GP podiums no GP wins and absolutely no championship in GP or any other series for that matter on a works Honda. That was great lol

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner at Laguna my best battle


Desh: I'm a Stoner fan, and I love that race as well. It takes two to tango and with hindsight we know how incredible it was for Stoner to even be in that battle on the Suckati. Swap the bikes and that battle simply does not happen, Rossi would have been nowhere. I know Rossi won that battle and he rode a smart race by preventing Stoner from being able to run the super committed lines the Ducati needed to run to be fast, but the reason I like watching that race is seeing how Stoner wrestled that under steering Duc around such a tight circuit at such a speed that if Rossi on the superior Yamaha had allowed Stoner even 1 complete clear lap at the front the race would have been over.
Errm..no, Stoner was way ahead of anybody else in practise and qualifying, Rossi knew he'd run away with the race if he got in front, Rossi won the race and subsequently the championship, on sheer strength of will against a much faster bike, by rattling Stoner. for that reason, one o

MotoGP » Rookie Espargaro: ‘Hey man, you’re in third!’


What about his brother ? what Aleix is doing on that Forward Racing bike is incredible ! I reckon a few established factory riders, not least Dani Pedrosa, will be looking over their shoulders and wondering if he'll be taking their place but the real dilemma must surely be at Yamaha, do they promote Pol to the full factory team and if so who do they ditch ?
