MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Liam48: He ride a good race, I agree he lost too much time behind Espargaro and Dovi. He was slowly catching the front two then he then lost 7 tenths lap after lap for a few laps as the tires went. It seem that Rossi prefers the harder tyre while Lorenzo prefers the softer and the softer was the better race tyre for today. Considering that Marquez is Marquez and Lorenzo is a bit if a Silverstone specialist and Rossi had never been that great at Silverstone, this was a great result. Fingers crossed he can close in the top two in Misano and the following races after that.
Er......Rossi got soundly beaten by his team mate today who looks like he's back to his 2012/3 form. Is Rossi only here to collect podiums - feels like it?!

MotoGP » I'd be faster on a Superbike, says Crutchlow

Crutchlow needs to learn some diplomacy and keep his mouth shut. He's not happy and the bike doesn't work for him unlike Dovi ~ but Ducati are still paying his wages and there is a long way in the season to go. If it's that bad, walk away from your contract and face the consequences. Cal could learn a few PR skills from Rossi and how he handled things whilst at Ducati.

MotoGP » I'd be faster on a Superbike, says Crutchlow

GuzziHero: Okay, well I'm not sticking up for Cal but one bike sums up how an uncommunicative and unpredictable bike can eat even the best riders alive:- RS3 Cube. Regis Laconi, 2002 WBSK runner-up Colin Edwards, double WSBK champion Noriyuki Haga, competitive SBK rider Shane Byrne, WSBK champ (and multiple times again after MotoGP) And none of them could make the bike work. Actually, I see a pattern... all of the above had their grounding on the arguably more forgiving Superbikes. Maybe that is the problem with Cal, too.
Shakey has been a multiple BSB champion. He's never been a WSBK champion.

MotoGP » Bradl moment costs Pedrosa

Sete: Awesome ride by Dani and really, really quick! Moves him to a solid second in the championship in front of Rossi. Unfortunately he is challenging probably the most talented rider to come along in FIVE DECADES! Can Marq beat Ago's record of 10 wins in a row? I think yes!
Trouble is Pedrosa has to beat MM to win his first championship and I gave up waiting for this to happen years ago. I would expect him to come second - he is in the best bike on the grid.

WSBK » Sykes ‘puts gremlins to bed’ with dominant double

Sykes never acknowleges the good results that Baz puts in. He could have said "Great result for Kawasaki - 2 1-2 finishes." but he didnt. I like Sykes but he really isn't a team player. I think Jamie Whitham put it well when he said Sykes is concerned about Baz because he is the only person who can trouble him on a regular basis. I think he handles Baz by ignoring him at best or criticizing him when Baz gets in his way. Sykes should look at the way Marquez gives praise to his team mate Pedrosa. Perhaps Sykes doesnt cos he is dour tyke - but he could learn better PR.
