MotoGP » Dominant Rossi routs rivals at Jerez

The church bells will be chiming in Tavullia this afternoon. Not the most interesting race but to see a 37 year old dominating from start to finish 20 years after he turned professional is absolutely outstanding, many of today's viewers probably hadn't even started watching when Rossi was in his prime but today's performance gives an insight into just how good he was at his peak. Valentino Rossi is a credit to Moto GP, to himself and to Yamaha.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Spinning rear cost me chance of win

RealDrWho: If you want to see a sore loser just look at the guy with the arms crossed over each other. It's pretty bad that there are always excuses to blame for "bad" results. Take second spot like a man, it's not bad to lose from your teammate unless he's 37 years old oh wait.... LMAO
I love how the 37 years old factor is always used as a factor to diss other riders he beats but is quickly used to defend Rossi when he can't get on the podium like at Qatar... Which one is it? To me age isn't that much of a factor. There are plenty of older riders in history and in other series who beat younger riders.
Stupid comment! If age is no factor why isn't there a grid full of 37 year old riders? Why is the next oldest rider on the grid 6 yrs younger than Rossi? Why isn't Ago, Surtees, Lawson, Criville, Biaggi still out there fighting for titles?

MotoGP » MotoGP Jerez - Warm-up Results

bikenut: For those that say Moto 2 is needed to progress to Moto GP Tito Rabat has spent 4 or 5 years in Moto 2 and doesn't seem to be going any quicker than Miller
Personally I think it comes down to the mentality and ability of the rider. Progressing through the lower GP classes surely has to be the best way to approach the premier class to gain familiarity with the tracks, set up of a GP bike and allowing the body and brain to become accustomed to the speeds and forces of the bikes aswell as the dietary requirements and effects of long haul travel on the body. The ones who have serious ambitions of winning a premier class title will understand the benefits of Moto 2 and will see it as a natural stepping stone to their ultimate goal. Rabat just isn't a top top rider and never will be, same with Zarco he may be good in Moto 2 but if he ever moves to Moto GP he will never be a race winner. The likes of Rabat, Zarco and Miller will never be a Moto GP champion r

MotoGP » Vinales nearing Suzuki or Yamaha decision?

Uzekamanzi964: Vinales is so good, he really should move to a top team to get his career underway in style. Unless Suzuki are really gunning to challenge Yamaha & Honda, which on the evidence to date they are NOT, he should move. Question is - will Rossi help or hinder? I suspect the latter.
I don't think he'll do either, probably just distance himself from whoever is across the garage. Rossi, Jarvis etc have probably discussed the situation a lot more this time, they know the marketing value of getting Rossi to surpass Agostini's records but they know they can't afford to have him involved in another bad internal team rivalry again.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Spinning rear cost me chance of win

Yearby23: cozziegaz Because Rossi brings in the money... Older riders are usually replaced by younger ones but none of them have the same PR personality as Rossi. If it was 100% about the racing on track Yamaha would've kept Lorenzo and signed Vinales... but it isn't... And as for the list of riders you chose to list, Biaggi was still racing at 42 and won a title at that age.... Surtees is 82, Ago is 73... hardly 37... and 37 is hardly pre-historic....
You're talking about Biaggi in World Superbikes which was a great achievement at that age but he wasn't winning in Moto GP at 37. Rossi is the oldest winner since Bayliss at 37 in 2006, he will surpass that this year, the next oldest was a 37 yr old in 1949 and the most recent older winner was a 42 yr old in 1977! Marquez was hailed a hero for breaking Spencer's record from the 80's!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi storms to pole at Jerez

speedbegger: Another weekend disaster for smith--he's still completely lost with the new configuration. Doesn't exactly bode well for his position as a 'development expert' at Ktm next year. Hope he's bringing the blueprints to the m1.....otherwise they aren't going anywhere.
Toseland and Suzi Perry were actually discussing earlier that Guy Coulon has maybe been leading Bradley down the wrong path and that Bradley has been going directly to the electronics technician regarding set ups who agrees with Bradley's opinions over Guy Coulon's.
