MotoGP » MotoGP Aragon - Full Qualifying Results

Can Iannone qualify fast on his own ? I can't remember one quali in which he has run on his own without being the hound for VR, JL, MM or DP's hare. You never see Iannone get a Front row start whilst chasing Crutchlow, Vinales or those unlikely to be front rowers. Aragon, like other tracks, Iannone gets to follow JL. Guess what ? Front row and cue "heroic" AI commentary. I didn't like Simoncelli (RIP) either (for completely different reasons) but at least he used to qualify on his own merit. I'm not convinced AI is better than Petrucci on the gp15, which seems a good bike with the concessions.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: You fight the Honda more

The result of Marquez leading HRC's devpmt program ? CC had a similar complaint re the RCV- difficult to control and unresponsive to greater rider input. MM should let DP take the devpmt lead. From the outside looking at the HRC riders, they look loose and ragged just keeping up with the yamahas. Like see how far ahead BS/EspP are of CC, talk of the gp14 beta dukes. The engine seems aggressive on throttle openings, much more so than the less abrupt yam delivery, at least via their onbords. My 2c ....

MotoGP » MotoGP Brno - Race Results

Since Sheene ? And only after THIS race have you accepted motogp is boring, dull, (insert soporific adjective).....keen watchers of this board often see such postings only for the poster to reveal themselves as part of the yellow haze. Why switch to BSB and not rallycross or motoX or speedway? Great "passing" , no electronics (an instant yellow haze give away btw). In today's infantalisation of everything, each race is supposed to be indescribably a classic one. So the question is if every race is a classic, what separates them ? Only favoritism of your favorite rider. In other words, you're really not a fan of the sport, just another poorly disguised VR fanboi(I've been a fan since Sheene phony). Even if what you post is true, boredom was epic when Doohan had Ukawa as a team mate. Didn't hear you then whining into your pot-noodle. Get over it. VR has a team mate that can slug it out with him, even on a bike he built. JL's immense talent is too often rubbished by the yellow pantistas

MotoGP » Rossi braces for ‘great fight’ with Lorenzo

Fear, thy name is doubt....... A lot of posters doing a rain dance on here. JL trying to demonstrate conclusively he is top 5 roadracer of all time. VR trying to prove he's the GOAT (which, btw, everyone KNOWS, by winning one MORE title). Who'd you think is more motivated, more hungry? 18 seasons and nothing to prove vs 8 odd at the motogp level. This class of DP, CS27, JL, ADAM and latterly MM have tested VR in a manner he has never been. His GOATNESS comes from his cross generational brilliance in competition and machinery. There's no shame at all in been beat by JL. This is a hugely compelling heavyweight chess-boxing match. VR needs a reset. Misano perhaps ?

GReaper: Tunde, why the hell would you take my comments as an attack on Lorenzo, he is incredibly talented. To be honest you make some valid comments, albeit in a somewhat infantile way, and the Doohan era wasnt good for the sport. I dont watch to support my favourite, what a sweet concept, I watch in the hope that there is close competitive racing rather than the drawn out procession that we witnessed today. As for being a VR fanboi, you are very much misguided my friend and why would you assume that I stuck Sheene's name in just for effect. I grew watching Sheene, Roberts, Rainey, Schwantz et all and have followed the sport since the mid 70's and whilst I do have a leaning towards Yamaha I have yet to don any specific rider shirts,hats or flags although I did have a John WIlliams replica helmet once if that counts??
My apologies then. It's just an appeal to dismay over the current state of the sport usually begins with a throwback to a bye gone era. This is typically after anyone but VR winning. I can't recall Sheene riding but I remember J-m Bayle, Beattie, Schwantz et al. I personally think we're in a golden age of racing. The four aliens are separated in terms of talent by milimetres. Therefore come race w/e, if you're 1 cm behind ( I mean this figuratively btw) you end up 5 secs off come race end. We can have an argument as to what the bikes have evolved into. More powerful, highly crafted race machines. W/o electronics, the riders couldn't ride them. If they were so inhibitive to talent, why don't the super talented turn them off entirely. Because to do so would guarantee they would lose to an also ran and risk serious injury. So for me, the onus is on the rider to get to understand how the aides will benefit them. There's a lot of myth making about this rider uses less electronics than the other. I'm doubtful. What I think that refers to is that the range of tunable variables offered to rider are utilized less by some than others. And to my mind, that probably has as much to do with riding style and bike characteristics as anything else.
