MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 8th

8th is a bit hard on Dani. The results show that his riding really has improved consistently over the years. As the no.2 Honda rider he will always be overshadowed by Marquez, just as Criville was by Doohan - and there's no denying that he does have a weight advantage over bigger riders. Nevertheless he has shown this season that he isn't just a runner-up and that he can mix it with the star riders.

MotoGP » Mees praises Marquez after losing ‘crapshoot’

That's just incredible that Marc - a tarmac rider - can beat Jared Mees. Jared is one of the world's best dirt track racers. I see lots of comments about "trick bikes" but if there are any tricks that the pro dirt guys don't already know well, what are they guys? Ultimately the rider has to have the right skills to ride the damn thing. Just face it, Marquez is one out of the box.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’

Marquez has always looked so dominant since he came to MotoGP. Now he suddenly seems to be struggling. At the same time Pedrosa is finishing further down the order. Could it be that the Hondas have lost their advantage? Was that really all that was keeping Marquez head and shoulders above the rest? The final few races of the season will be interesting. Lorenzo could even claw back second place.

MotoGP » Marquez tips Pedrosa threat to 9-0 quest

It's just like last year when Marc said his job was to help Dani win the championship. Yes Mark, we believe you (he he!). He and Dani have the fastest bikes but theirs is a lot like the Doohan/Criville partnership. Criville was always close but never a real threat. If Marc is really worried about any riders spoiling his chance for a record-breaking 9 straight wins they'd be Rossi and Lorenzo - but he'll beat them yet again because he can.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We don’t breathe when we brake

Breathing keeps your blood oxygenated and your muscles, nerves and brain working at peak levels. If you stop breathing while racing, even for a few seconds, this is bound to have a negative effect on your competitiveness. I know it's a reflex action to hold your breath when you are in a frightening situation but, as in many other sports, riders have to practice controlling their breathing if they want to be competitive. I would have thought that would be obvious to a top level sportsman. I've only been on a racetrack a couple of times but this was something that became obvious to me quite quickly. Sadly, I've never won a world championship.
