RR » Guy Martin withdraws from Isle of Man TT


It's been suggested previously that he hasn't been single minded and focused enough to win a TT, I'd like to see him win one and I can't see this helping his chances, but none of us have been that focused either that's why we're sat behind keyboards............... I'm happy to wish Guy good luck in whatever he takes on, especially if it continues to provide the rest of us with some entertainment.

MotoGP » What to look out for in MotoGP 2016


VR and MM will be hyped by the press just like any other sporting grudge, I doubt we'll see any further action from either rider. Someone is bound to adapt to the technical changes better than the rest - that could be interesting. Getting the power delivery right with the new electronics to make it rider friendly without loosing too much will be a challenge for all, I'm not convinced that Honda will have more of a problem than anyone else despite this years issues. Suzuki could be interesting, it would be good to have another factory in the mix. Redding has tested well before, let's wait for race results. I don't really care if Stoner races or not, the hype around him with fans bickering and commentators worshiping gets on my nerves. he's talented but doesn't want to be there - get over it.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Only the rider knows


I'd call it a well balanced and sensible answer from Dovi. I'm not surprised that Marquez made no early attempts to pass Lorenzo. It may also be true that due to Pedrosa's move he couldn't make an attempt on the last lap. Sitting behind and mugging on the last lap is a preferred tactic of Marquez and many others. However what I would like to see questioned is why didn't Marquez make a move when Pedrosa was closing in fast. At that stage he knew that Pedrosa would shortly make a move on him. This is a pattern you see in races all of the time, riders make a move earlier if they are under threat themselves. Also Marquez didn't fight back on Pedrosa, Pedrosa ran wide in the pass so the door was left open. I think there is some truth in Rossi's accusations, but the "facts" aren't that clear cut.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Only the rider knows


Whatifthatis:
totty: personally I didn't feel that Dovi let him past. Petrucci blatantly did, but if manipulating the result by holding people up goes unpunished then you can't really punish people for manipulating it by helping.
Why are all the rossi fans so upset by Marc then. I also believe he was faster and if Dani hadn't closed in he would have fought for the victory. For two reasons: Rossi couldn't accuse him for helping JLO anymore. And it would hurt Rossi more being tied and losing the title on less race wins
If you want my view it's on the first page of comments, I can't speak for any of the other fans. I think Marc intended to win, maybe he wanted to ensure he was the only one to pass Lorenzo but that's just speculation, we'll never know.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Only the rider knows


Dovi may have been using the tactic that Smith openly discussed before the race. Try to use a faster rider coming through to your advantage. In the early stages try to get a tow to get a better overall result. In the closing stages fight them for position. Although personally I didn't feel that Dovi let him past. Petrucci blatantly did, but if manipulating the result by holding people up goes unpunished then you can't really punish people for manipulating it by helping.
