WSBK » PICS: Marco Melandri riding the Aprilia RSV4


Melandri and Laverty at Aprillia! Where do these comments come from? I assume kids who only started watching SBK. Go and watch the Monza races when they both rode for Yamaha Italia. No love lost at all. Marco was a 2nd rate 250 WC (weaker field that year) who has front runner talent, but like Nori, Pedrosa et al, is destined never to a WC (again). If he's that loved by Italians, why does Marco not have a CRT/production ride in MotoGP? What I want to know is why did the PATA boys pick Fabrizio?

MotoGP » Pedrosa: I almost found myself on the floor


While admiring the consistency of Dani, and his courage, he has had the dream run of all the top riders - in one factory team his whole MotoGP career. The only possible exception is Jorge and his Yamaha ride. Casey had Honda, Ducati and then back to Honda, Vale started in Honda, then Yamaha, now Ducati, and from there to where? Spies had 2 Yamaha teams. Even Andrea rode for Honda and now Yamaha. That shows more ability to adapt, and more skill in the process. And what has Dani done with the 'best bike in the best team'* - he's been beaten by his team mates year in, year out. He must be super valuable to Repsol because he'll never be WC. *possibly

MotoGP » Ellison makes his point(s) as top CRT


Top CRT - who cares? He came 11th. That's it. Now coming 11th was no mean feat and can be congratulated on its own merits. Nice ride in the wet from James. But can we please stop giving a monkey's about CRT. It's MotoGP (or just GP as it used to be) and these guys are privateers and since when did the privateers have their own championship. I like the idea of saving costs and supplying cheaper bikes to privateer teams - but they shouldn't be in parc ferme, or get a special mention unless they get a result.
