MotoGP » Vintage Rossi clinches emotional victory at Misano

Classic Rossi. He rattled Marquez the same way he used to rattle Biaggi. Marquez clearly couldn't believe he was stuck in second - his suspension of disbelief induced a collision with the planet Earth. Not a very great impact but enough to shatter confidence. What is interesting about contemporary MotoGP, with fifty cameras recording every move from every angle is the very nakedness of the competition. It's like a prize fight in a ring: you could see very clearly that Rossi was out-riding the young guy on a machine that was clearly slower. For once, Honda money-power was not able to overcome raw talent and deep experience. Lorenzo did well in support of his teammate. Pedrosa? Got to feel compassion for the guy, back there fighting with the Ducati crowd. Maybe it's time for a career move... to WSB.

MotoGP » 'I wasn't thinking' says 'distracted' Lorenzo

Dear Yamaha Racing, I have an excellent explanation for this unfortunate event at the US event. Please refer to the attached. Sincerely SpeedyBB Dear SpeedyBB, Many thanks for your suggestion. We will try this with the FIM. Yamaha Racing Dear FIM We submit the following technical explanation for the unfortunate "jump start" by our factory rider Jorge Lorenzo at the Austin Texas GP event last Sunday. Jorge informed us confidentially that that rascal Valentino Rossi was reaching over to grab his **** (ass) right on the Starting Line, in violation of all safety racing principles. Alarmed, and intend on preserving his immaculate anal chastity, Jorge bolted, getting right out of Rossi's reach. We hope that this full explanation will fulfill the requirements of the FIM Code of Conduct and that you have a codicil in the FIM Racing rules about such crimes against nature. Mr. Rossi will be instructed to keep his hands on the controls of his motorcycle in future racing events. Sin

MotoGP » Ben Spies: I didn't have it to win a MotoGP championship

Tomco: Top rider and top bloke who for whatever reason lost a lot of confidence and didnt achieve what many people, including myself, thought he would do. Main thing is that he got out before getting hurt.
I thought he retired specifically because of a shoulder injury - the kind that takes quite a while to heal (if ever). Casey wanted to get out too before he got hurt but he didn't quite make it. Never can tell. (In my day it was much simpler, more clean-cut: we just got killed. So get off my lawn.)

MotoGP » Rossi revels in old school MotoGP thrills

ProfessorX: more like old hat, but he should thank marc for not leaving him 10 seconds behind. It's a shame this spectacle is so predictable.
Trolls crawl out from under rocks. Rossi-haters never give up. Anybody else deluding themselves into thinking Marquez was sand-bagging it? Not bloody likely. And how come no one has blamed that absurd Tilke-designed slot-car course for the multiple crashes?

MotoGP » Brake problems thwart Pedrosa's chance of fast lap

With all the scuttlebutt on Dani's 'Daddy' being shown the door, and Marquez shoving aside the 'senior' rider on the HRC team, one wonders whether this year, possibly Dani's last, will see him go feral. He might be desperate enough to hit it really hard, take chances as never before, and thus put on a super-spectacular performance. He has had his share of injuries and knows the meaning of pain. That can work two ways. The human body, which has its own innate animal 'mind', can simply resist taking those scary chances, and hold a rider or driver back that tiny bit - which means they lose their edge. This is often what happens to a rider who is lashed up in traction in a hospital bed for weeks at a time. They're never as fast when they return to the track. It could go the other way - **** the pain, go for it, the hard man shows the way. Think Troy Bayliss. Or Dani himself, for that matter. In the same line of thought it will be interesting to see whether Marquez can maintain his pac

MotoGP » Lorenzo wins, Marquez black flagged - VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

I'm surprised no one sees the added drama in the mandatory pit stop. Those lithe young guys leaping off one bike and pouncing on the other... the dramatic (almost disastrous) re-entry... The only thing that keeps Formula I race fans from going to sleep (78 laps!!) is the pit stops, and that could well be a nice aspect of MotoGP if done properly. Why should they have to deal with the huge difference in weight (up top as well) between a full fuel tank and an empty one? Mandatory fuel stop! Dani's boo-boo and Lorenzo's near-stoppie are also nice eye-candy. The real racing was (as usual) in Moto2 and Moto3.

MotoGP » Rossi talks Crutchlow Ducati move

As a teacher of "Intercultural Communication" my conclusion was that when Rossi went to Ducati there was an inevitable conflict, which might be summarized as "Let's get this thing revised and go win" (Rossi) vs. "You're the rider - we hired you - just shut up and ride the motorcycle, if you can" (Ducati). Frequent reports of this kind of ego standoff with top drivers who go to Ferrari. The latest gefuffle with Alonso is a classical case study. The confrontation may have been exacerbated by the fact that it was Italian vs. Italians, and neither side wanted to back down. Even though Rossi (and Burgess) had clearly turned a miserable excuse of a Yamaha GP bike into a title winner, Ducati's pride of position (imagined mostly) wouldn't let them do the same. Pity. You can't blame Rossi for what boils down to a tragic human relations standoff. Just my take on it. I'm an ex-GP rider as well and motorcycle journalist so I have a bit of insight into the dynamics of these relationships.
