MotoGP » Crutchlow: I wasn’t angry, just disappointed

myselff: I have a feeling he would have crashed either way. Let's look at the recent LCR riders and how they performed. 2006 - Casey Stoner, 8th in the overall championship ranking and got nicknamed "Rolling Stoner" because he crashed very often. 2007 - Carlos Checa, new crashing record with 32 crashes during a season. It was his worst season and when asked at which point did he acknowledge it's gonna be a rough season he replied "the first test day when I rode the LCR Honda for the first time" 2008 - 2010 - Randy de Puniet, beefy stopped counting Randy's crashes when they reached 40, Randy had to pay 15% of the damage from his own pocket. 2011 - Toni Elias, his and LCR worst season by far. 2012 -2014 - Stefan Bradl, great first season 8th in the overall championship, then 7th and in his last season with the team 9th with many crashes. Made the privateer Honda look better than it actually was. (look at Bautista)
Super Sic sure looked good on it though.

MotoGP » PICS: Rossi, Marquez final turn Assen showdown

Cris Zarate: It's clear on the picture and video footage that without Rossi there, Marquez will overshoot the corner because even with the contact, he still ended up with both wheels off the track... So I don't understand the reason behind Marquez thinking he won... He is the most aggressive rider currently and he is also the luckiest who don't pick up penalty... Remember when he hit Alvaro's Aprilia in Qatar that made the brake line loose, the move was so aggressive that ended Alvaro's race in the first lap... This move is similar, only Rossi came out on top...
For the second time Valentino has survived Marquez running into him. How many more times can he before MM takes him out?

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...

Pol is spot on. Bradley Smith? Uh whatever. It's called protecting you line and is the expected technique. Riders who are good at it are often said to have good "racecraft". Nothing even remotely questionable about protecting your line. It's this simple, two objects cannot be in the space at the same time. Unless you are Marc Marquez, you know this from physics class. He must have skipped that course in high school. Pol is right, even if a rider is way back, he can just barge into the corner and bump the rider on the outside slowing him down more than enough (if not take him out) and then jump out way a head of him. The rider on the outside is always at the most disadvantage in this situation. He will be stood up or bumped. Either way losing time.

Digoutyerarse: i was a bit skeptical about the win, but i have to agree with race direction since they have all the camera angles..but...maybe rossi was hot into the corner too?? who knows, they have to look at the telemetry, still racing incident i think.

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident

Stellar: Thank you Mr. Webb, summed it up very very well. Marquez and his fans need to swallow some pride and accept when he makes a mistake. He's used his bike as a battering ram and other riders as bump stop for countless times in his career. He clearly has a lot of talent and determination to win but hope he doesn't ruin the outcome of championship by torpedoing Lorenzo or Rossi later in the season. But it's very difficult to imagine he'll change that, he's bound to collect one of them or both at some stage.
So sad but true.Twice he has battled with Rossi this year and twice he has crashed into Rossi trying to make a pass that wasn't there. The really sad part is he will eventually crash Rossi (or Lorenzo) out and ruin a great season for everyone.
