MotoGP » Riders comment on Kent’s proposed MotoGP jump


In many respects, Kent is a lot like Rabat and Zarco. He has hung around the beginner class long enough there came a season where his experience has ruled. The more talented riders are 16 17 years old compared to him being almost 22. Same thing happen with Rabat last year in Moto2. most of the big league talent moved on and his experience carried him to a title even though by seasons end, Vinales was visibly the superior rider. This year Kent has taken advantage of the main competition being babies. As the season wears on, those babies are getting tougher and tougher, and even though Kent will win the title, the eyes will be on the children nipping at his heels. He better take what he can when he can, i doubt the stars will ever align like this for him again.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith signs Tech 3 deal


madh4tt3r: all these keyboard warriors, give the guy a break, he can be within half a second of THE fastest riders in the world, that means that he is effen fast!! .
Being faster than the fan base will get you nowhere.All of these guys are elite riders in the world of motorcycling, but facts are, Bradley is an average professional rider who would not stand out in any top notch series. Come race day, he is 3/4 of a second per lap slower than the elite, [21 second average down to winner] certainly faster than a fan, but not getting the full potential out of the bike.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith signs Tech 3 deal


DennisKwok: One wonders if Bradley got the terms he wanted, as he richly deserves at least parity of equipment with his team mate Pol, who can't get near him this season.
Looking at the length of the deal, i doubt he got what he was holding out for, he didnt hold any bargaining power at all. Though im glad for him, this deal signals more of a lack of options. Herve has to be longing for the Edwards, Dovi, Spies, Crutchlow type rider who could actually run that bike at the or near the front, Bradley's rise in the standings is from not crashing, not a leap in performance. The Tech3 Yamaha is a better bike than the factory Ducati and with one of the riders mentioned above, i believe would be sitting 4t in the standing and have the performance to stay there. As it stands, i see Bradley losing 5th to Pedrosa by years end

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘turning point’ for Redding?


iamzombie:
Makrus: .
It wouldn't make Redding or Baz as fast as Marquez or Pedrosa, but I don't see how anyone could think it's fair to more or less penalize guys who aren't built like children or jockeys.
Where do you stop. Lets say there is a phenom on a motorcycle, but he weighs 220 lbs, would you ask Pedrosa to carry 100 pound ballast just so this guy can play. Its nonsense. You are born with attributes that will either benefit or hinder you in sports, if you choose the wrong sport, thats not everyone elses problem. This has been beat to death and its a known fact that Pedrosa's size comes with just as many disadvantages as it does advantages.

MotoGP » Rossi braces for ‘great fight’ with Lorenzo


juggaknot:
MotoMarc: Totally agree with Rossi's assessment. The start was horrendous and it left him over a second behind on the first lap then he had to battle with the Ducati boys to get around them which left him even further back time wise. I
Even if Rossi had kept 3rd place after the 1st corner, I doubt he would've kept up with both spanish riders. Their pace was simply too hot.
Yea, the start had nothing to do with his finish. He was never finishing higher than 3rd no matter what kind of start he got. Rossi ran 1 lap the entire race faster than Lorenzo and that was late in the race when the finishing order had long been determined. For the first half of the race, he was losing 4-5 10ths every lap.even after he cleared the Ducati's.

MotoGP » Rossi braces for ‘great fight’ with Lorenzo

Was the deck stacked in his favour when he took on the most powerful manufacturer in the world on a slower bike who hadn't won for... How long? A decade or more.. ? Was it stacked in his favour when he was on Michelin against far superior Bridgestone?
The far superior Bridgestone was not always superior. Only once they became superior did Rossi power play Dorna into forcing Bridgestone to supply him tires. The switch to Yamaha was not as big a jump as some like to believe, yes the Honda was the better bike, but the Yamaha was a race winning bike with Biaggi. This is what we mean when we say he had weak competition. Early in his career, he could make jumps like that and still beat the competition.We saw how that worked out later in his career when he made the jump to another mfg when he was surrounded by talent.

It has been demonstrated time and time again that top speed does not make a great race bike.. The Yamaha was by far the better overall race bike despite being down on top speed to the Ducati. Stoner was the difference period. If you go back and look, in most cases, His was not even the fastest Ducati, but he was the only Ducati rider who got results.
I agree but the duke was set up for Stoner Caparossi kept asking for the bike to be set up for his style and in only 1 race it was and he smoked stoner and the field
If my memory serves me, Capirossi won one race on the 800cc Ducati and it was a wet race. Are you saying that Capirossi's go to setup was a wet one.
