MotoGP » PICS: Riders take part in ‘Waterfall’ test


MotoGp Rulebook. Chapter 5, Section 7, Paragraph 4. When a corner which requires negotiation on the cooler side of the tyre the corner will be reshaped in order to remove any original thinking or gambling by riders. This means Dorna have the opportunity to remove as many last ditch effort area for riders chasing a win, podium, one place higher to push the envelope. If all rider know it can be a dodgy corner, some will ease off, some will push on in the hope of an advantage but all will be aware of the risk.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury


Realist When have we ever heard them mention being scared? That's all that most people are saying. I believe Marquez said he was a bit scared at Mugello after his big crash last year, which is why he rolled off early into the first corner for a while. Once he overcame that "fear" he was back to normal. It's just a reminder that all of these riders are just people.

MotoGP » 'Challenging' day for satellite Yamaha contender Smith


People are comparing what Smith is doing compared to Cal last year. The thing is Cal was pretty much on a works bikes (same version almost as Jorge and Rossi). Smith is still on last years bike, as is Pol, who as a rookie is doing OK, not Marquez rookie but normal rookie. Pol admitted he is struggling with the style of riding a Yamaha and he is the next Yamaha messiah! Honda satellites have works supports (Bautista on "naff" suspension or brakes) which means Bradl is on superior machinery. There was a lot of consternation when Smith got the ride, many believe Redding should have had it. Redding tie bikes in knots, it's cool but wouldn't have suited the Yamaha, could he adapt - don't know, did he deserve it - possibly. It seems many are either Redding or Smith fans. People clutch at the stats or "lack of justice" without the knowledge and the bashing comes easily.

MotoGP » Smith keen to continue ‘steady improvements’


SuperSick58: Schrodinger... you obviously missed all of my posts throughout the year. Let me recap for you... Qatar and Austin were anomolies because in both races, 3 riders with more talent than BS either crashed out or had tire failure which dropped them back, in turn elevating BS to those positions. Argentina saw all of the top people stay upright with no tire issues and guess where BS finished. So what you're saying is that in Austin and Qatar (up until BS fell off) was that Brad was MORE talented than the 3 riders with more talent (that you cannot name). Stayed on longer and didn't wreck his tyres... well by 'eck!
