MotoGP » Smith: We're close to being top satellite bike


speedbegger:
SmokinHaddock: Oh, I don't know, maybe the one where he had the skill to stay on board, end up on the podium, whilst the others were chucking it at the scenery?
hate to be harsh but thats called 'lucking' onto the podium. and i'm not sure i'd say it was 'skill'.... more like slowing wwwaaaayyyyyy down (from his already sluggish pace) after watching rider after rider pitch their bikes due to changing conditions and tire construction. he needs to show results in race without extenuating circumstances--and so far he hasn't.
When you are competing in the Premier class, and everyone starts, and there are no 'mechanicals' then nobody 'lucks' on to the podium. I think you are forgetting just how good you have to be to even get near a MotoGP grid in the first place. The ongoing lack of knowledge and respect on this forum constantly amazes me.

MotoGP » Smith: We're close to being top satellite bike


kangaroo: What is most amusing dear chap is you claim Stoner developed his skills in the land of pom so here are some more facts from Wikipedia on Stoner 'first race at age 4 against under 9 year olds. Between his first race win at age 6 and age 14 Stoner won 41 dirt and long track titles and 70 state titles. Over one weekend he raced in 5 different categories and different engine capacities, the young Stoner went on to win 32 of the 35 races. There were 5 Australian [\ Well aware of his heritage and impressive record, but he still came to the UK as a 14 year old to progress his career.

Rayzerp2: Seems a nice enough guy and as has been said can throw in the odd fast lap but I cant recall one race for him in motogp where he has stood out and showed what he could be capable off....truly a mystery how he is still on the bike in my opinion....but he is so good luck to him!!

MotoGP » Circuit of Wales responds to Donington split


As stated by someone above any pre-contract agreement would likely as not have up front cash deposits contained within it. Perfactly reasonable for Donnington to ask for cash to start the changes they need to make. The fact that CoW haven't been able, or felt able, to hand over cash speaks volumes about their position. Why on earth DORNA gave them the rights so early in their life is bizarre. Cadwell definitely has my vote :) I reckon MM would leap a damn sight further than I ever did, possibly even further than Bomber! Sadly it looks like Silverstone. Brands would be great but the changes required aren't possible due to proximity to a housing estate....you know the sort that contains people who move close to a race track and then complain about it.

Gary Rowan: Famous for achieving nothing. Thats quite an achievement!
If you think its easy to win a superbike race at the Ulster GP or the NW 200 think again.
I meant at the TT
Hes also famous for being a character and entertainer as well as a road racer. What exactly have you achieved ?
Two amazing children, a great job and financial security..........but I'm not famous. What have you achieved then?
Pretty run of the mill compared to multiple podiums and 130+mph laps of the mountain course.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Marquez talented, brave, takes lot of risks


8 races is a pretty good run to base opinions on. Fact is MM did fall off 3 times, and if he continues to take those risks he will at some point get injured. He is taking those risks because that is one of the way he stays in front. A snapped collar bone, or a broken wrist are only one crash away. If it happens then Rossi and JL will be fighting for the championship. Maybe DP. Rossi, JL, and DP have all lost championships because of injury. Chances are its going to happen to MM. If I had to bet whilst I know where my money would be, I wouldn't be so sure about the 2015 champion just yet.
