MotoGP » Colin Edwards: 'Faith and feel'


Colin was very talented but luck and timing have a lot to do with success. In his prime, he was on the Aprilia then the factory Yamaha. Sometimes politics, the presence of Rossi, and other things just conspire to keep a persons potential from showing. Then you start to lose the good rides and you get older, and confidence goes...on and on. Look at Espargaro, obviously ridiculously quick but he didn't get to go straight to a factory ride like Marquez. Each first step for those two were completely different and Espargaro's potential may never be realized because of the politics. So, to criticize Edwards for his "relative" lack of success is a sign of ignorance. Not to mention that we have no right to criticize riders who have accomplished more than any of you naysayers have. Every sport needs its characters whether they are winners or not...he will be sorely missed cuz the current crop of riders are remarkably stuffy or bland. What happened to all the cool shows that Rossi and Jo

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Ninth not true reflection of our pace


I agree with Carlos. The track borders are there for a reason. If they didn't matter, then just put some dirt tires on the bikes and go where ever the hell ya want. I have seen races where Biaggi, and Fogarty barely cut a chicane cuz they came in hot, didn't gain or lose a postion but got penalized, yet Rossi and Marquez can dirt track the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca to gain a position and everyone hails them as genius' for obviously making a mistake and getting away with it without crashing. Lame. Its cheating the corner. They should elevate and ripple those into rumble strips to keep them off it. TedG...the Hondas are so far from a flat track style as a bike could possibly be. Hondas are engine oriented and Yamahas are chassis oriented...those are company philosophies that have nothing to do with Lorenzo or MM. But Yamaha still makes a good engine and Honda makes a good Chassis. Whatever the differences are is likely in the software first...bike second...all targeted at the

MotoGP » Wayne Rainey - Q&A


In America its like sportbikes are an urban thing yet its better to ride them on twisty rural roads. Harleys are better in the city yet they are associated with the open road...it makes no sense. I live in a small town having come from the big city and all I see now is Harleys and some GS1200 adventure bikes. Yet in my back yard are hundreds of miles of canyon road. Just me and my Daytona 675 dodging tons of slow bikes. We cant even get F1, let alone any form of road racing, to be popular here...no chance for bikes. The Harley NASCAR mentality is too deep. For god sake soccer is finally starting to be recognized here. How about if USA actually got on board with the important world championships...soccer, F1,and MotoGP and stop calling our national sports championships the World Series, or World Champions when no other countries actually participate. Pathetic. What do you expect from a country where people care more about gun rights than quality health coverage.

MotoGP » Rossi, Marquez, Hayden pay tribute to Edwards


I bet 'Monstermash' just has a ton of friends and a solid relationship going...probably not. What is the point in slamming a person who has accomplished so much more than yourself? Colin was great to watch as Jamie James' team mate on the Vance & Hines Yamaha. That was just when I got into racing myself. His retirement, like Biaggi's, is like a particular generation coming to a close for me. Bayliss, Biaggi, Capirossi, Barros, Corser, Haga, Edwards, Fogarty, Doohan, Schwantz, Gobert, Koscinski, Russell, Slight, Chili, and Bostrom...such a great cast of characters from a great couple of decades of racing. Just doesn't seem the same anymore when all people talk about is economy, electronics, control tires. With these guys it was the electronics between their ears that made the difference!!!
