MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident

It was an inevitable overtake attempt by MM who has gained a reputation for barging riders but I am not saying that Rossi is an angel either. Two things stand out. 1. The media (in the past) saying he puts his bike where he wants and let's the other rider decide the consequences. 2. The Assen post race interview with Gavin Emmett, MM said something along the lines of he tried for the overtake and you saw what happened (similar responsibility acknowledgement as Argentina) but GE said he had talked to Livio and Livio said MM had made contact with VR... only then did MM acknowledge there may have some responsibility. To be honest MM did an amazing final lap up to the chicane but to imply VR cheated to win is a bit off. Great race and very Edwards v Hayden.

RR » TT 2015: Martin: The bike was better than third

The difference between winning and losing could be due being a full time professional or a journey man. I think Guy is still a truck mechanic who races bikes (with the odd tv appearance) rather than a TV star who races bikes or indeed a full time bike racer. It may be if guy went 100% bike racer he may find that extra edge to win because at the moment he is already beating most of them out there...

MotoGP » Espargaro: Smith beat me, I can't be happy

Tomco: Ok then. He mostly beats you. Last season was no different except Smith fell off a bit more.
Mostly??? There were 13 occasions in which Brad and Pol both finished the race intact in 2014. Pol defeated Brad on 8 occasions while Brad defeated Pol on only 5 occasions. And Pol's 3 defeat out of 5 happened in the very early phase of the season, and that was his rookie year! Brad fell a bit more? Actually, Pol had 4 DNF while Brad had 3. It was Pol who fell a bit more, yet he still ended his year two places higher than his experienced teammate. Your comments only demonstrate how much you are deluded by your fanboyism. Some of the Brad supporters only believe the facts favoring him and ignore all the facts against him.
Can you update your argument to this year please as that would be a bit more relevant to this article. As both riders are out of contract at the end of the season it is this year that matters. By ignor

MotoGP » Smith: Why didn't we try this yesterday!

Bryan277: But some might say that few, if any have progressed under their wing. Edwards & Toseland went backwards. Spies flunked and retired. Crutchlow flunked and went back to a private team. Only Dovizioso has come away from Tech3 untainted.
Actually, I believe Tech 3 led Spies to a factory Yam, which he flunked on. How interesting that the Spies fans blamed Tech 3 as well. Of those you mention, Dovi was the only one with more than flash in the pan top 5 talent.
You'll probably find that Spies was contracted to Yamaha but was forced into Tech 3 because of the "Rookie Rule". I think he may even have had a few choice parts that normal Tech 3 riders didn't get at the time.

MotoGP » Smith: Why didn't we try this yesterday!

At this level it is not a riders job to set a bike up, why do you think they have those people called engineers, to wave pom poms and cheer? It is up to the engineers to set the bike up according to rider feedback and if it takes a technical meeting to raise a few ideas then the team should have been having this on Saturday before race day warm up, ergo, bad management. If Pol on the other hand is doing well and happy with his bike already then carry on as normal.
