MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP


Neal: Jorge comes off as self-delusional complaining about a "bad" set of tires. Everyone was having trouble with the front tire. The aggressive riders like Marc and Cal ended up in the ditch refusing to stop pushing, the conservative rider (you) back off and lost a lot of time. .
The theory is that Cal did back off a little on the final lap and the tyre lost some heat and the next thing he knew, he was picking the bike up. Shame if that is how it went down...

MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres


Insidejob:
Polyccio: ...and they used to call Casey a moaner.
If you look at the photo of Vale's and Jorge's front tyres you will see what he is talking about. It seems to some people if the rider tells it like it is he is moaning.
I refute the dud tyre claim. The tyre degradation was a result of an unsuitable setup and cooking them in a futile battle with his team mate. Once the edge grip has gone, J-Lo tends to struggle as he depends on it for his sweeping high corner-speed style. Just my two penneth...

I agree. There were times where Lorenzo entered corners at full lean while Rossi was much more upright. Lorenzo's style cooked the tire. I don't think it was bad either. Rossi's style just aided tire management.
This Try to keep up Gary Rowan...

VegasRyder: That picture of JL's tire... That's what many tires look like at the end of a track day around here.. Kinda goes to show what a difference an experiences motogp crew can make when setting up a bike . We go out, maybe a click or 2 and call it good. These guys really set the bike up. I don't see many tires looking like Rossi's after 27 odd laps. These guys are good at what they do.. Usually.
Exactly. Too many people wearing tin foil hats on these boards IMO.

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory


Hogboy: ... and Smith gets his 1st podium in 2 years. Not sure if was because of his talent or because Iannone, Pedrosa, Marquez, Bradl, A. Esargaro, Crutchlow and P. Espargaro DNF'd. Thoughts?
His talent kept his bike on the black stuff which allowed him to finish the race. Dealing with tricky riding conditions and low grip is a skill in itself. Fair play to the lad, he really needed a confidence boost - onwards and upwards.
