MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’

separated: People are completely missing the point and would rather subscribe to ridiculous conspiracies. The fact is that MotoGP is too expensive with the ridiculously complex electronics, and making the Open rules was all about beating that. Next year everyone will be under the same rules, and Honda and Yamaha will still be winning, but the sport will be much cheaper - progress. People need to stop being unreasonable. Yamaha and Honda could have become Open Class too if they had wanted, but they chose their electronics, 2-4 litres less fuel and harder tyres instead, that's the facts.
At least somebody other than me has been following along. Thanks separated!! It really is that simple guys.

WSBK » Best position at start of a season for Rea

Matt2: But on the real topic, its looking pretty good for Rea 2015. Now we just sit back and wait for the Sykes meltdown.
Lol just reminded me of electric light orchestra song "Showdown". While I sure hope we do get showdown between these two...I anticipate a meltdown. "Bad dreamer, what's your name? Looks like we ridin' on the same train Looks as though there'll be more pain There's gonna be a "Meltdown"

MotoGP » Kevin Schwantz: Attack at every opportunity

Brain: I saw 4 years where this one guy was winning fast. Not sure what you are talking about
Subsequent to 07 we saw just as many high profile failings as wins...sure he was a tryer. I'm not convinced though that other tryers like Capirossi, Rossi, Lorenzo, or even Bayliss, wouldn't have also found success on the early versions of that bike. Oh wait a couple of them did didn't they. We know you can't help but take every opportunity to build your guy up but you need to face it that he really wasn't the only one able to ride the bike. He was just the best to be trying at the time. The other guys had championships to win.

MotoGP » FIRST LOOK: Ducati’s 2015 MotoGP machine

Agree with beard9x here. Honda is the reason for the two tier, three tier, racing, we've been dealing with. There refusal to adopt the proposed electronics package is what created the separate "open" class in the first place. Sure it would have been a step back for Honda and Yamaha but would have leant to closer racing. Ducati had nothing to lose by going to open class and have only possibly gained in preparations for 2016 control ecu in the interim. They definitely don't have any advantage at present when it comes to running a race distance against factory Honda and Yamaha. Honda and and Yamaha split the series and Ducati refused to play their game. Next year everybody will play as equals...except for "non" factory teams of course, they'll still be disadvantaged from a development standpoint but that's racing. IMO Ducati and Gigi have done an amazing job of getting this bike up to speed...the real test will be next year tho.
