Great results for the Brits

Think it was Moto GP or could have been WSB, last time out one of the commentators had said that MM told him his brother will be a better rider than him



Edit - Just watched the highlights, great race by AM, still think the factory Honda is the best all-round package, downside the MŠrquez brothers could rule for a long time if we are not careful

Nice to see the Suzukiís up there and Rins managed to finish

As for Vinales and the factory Yamaha, rubbish again

Like his reviews, up there with the best. 44 teeth ones are brilliant, the best for me

H2 is super quick but a big heavy lump, not for me. Same as a street fighter, naked bikes are for hooligans, power wheelie jobs. Get over the ton and you need neck muscles like Mike Tyson plus they feel so unstable with the wind blast.

Isle of Man next year for me. Iím either keeping the Ducati, having a Tuono, or another GSXR

Love the bike racing. WSB from Magny Cours today, canít wait

Great sport, one thing that I find fascinating is the bike development from MotoGP to WSB and BSB, straight down to, and available from your local dealer nowadays, the engineering and technology is amazing, always advancing. Traction control, anti wheelie, cornering ABS the lot. Saying that the bikes are so powerful nowadays you couldnít ride them without it

200kg, 200BHP, available on the road

Yes but Michelin choose the 2 compounds that will be used and they can change how hard or soft they for each race. So if they get that wrong it makes it harder for the riders.

I was gutted for the old boy when he binned it in the kitty litter. was sure he was going to get his 200th podium that day..im sure it will come before the seasons out, if not definitely next year on the petronas..getting pissed of with the arm chair fans over on the Moto gp social media pages always saying he should retire..bolox should he, the rest who finish behind him then should retire also..alot came off at Catalunya,have to remember the race is usually run in June when track temp is much higher. Michelin balsed that race up with tyre allocations..

Sadly I don't think next year is going to be any better but time will tell. On a personal note had three tours on the bike cancelled this year so ended up going back to Scotland via Wales and back through Yorkshire so was nice to get away. Been over to the Isle of Wight for a peak at the proposed tt cercuit for next year and hope it goes ahead.

As a aside, is the BT camera work annoying others like it is me, some of the decisions to show replays when any man and his dog can see a incedent/manoeuvre is about to happen, been happening a lot lately, much more so than previous years

Rossi has always thrived on performing for the crowds, must feel strange for the riders racing in virtually empty stadiums as the atmosphere just cannot be there. The venues must have lost huge amounts in ticket sales and revenue from the food and merchandise stalls.

It was a good race, really loving that the whole pack could win and the points are so close. Felt for Rossi but at the same time I can't help but think he doesn't give it his all anymore, can only see him going one way with all the other riders coming through.
I expected more from Mizano, seemed to be a lot of cagey riding going on, with all those bends I was expecting some real scraps but a lot seemed happy to just be following round.

Just watched the highlights, great racing and a real mix again

First for FM. Mir on the podium again, Suzuki coming good?

The factory Yamaha are well off the pace for me. MV is having a very poor run too, pole to 6th

I'm really not sure what to believe anymore, the so "called experts" down here are reporting that Dovi has now priced himself out of a petronas Yamaha ride alongside Valli???.
Crazy days, but it's Mugello, bring on the crazy track, going to be an epic weekend as always

He is still the man to beat, la rat boy

To be fair, can't wait to see FQ on a factory ride, Vinales has had a bit of bad look don't get me wrong but he is deffo not the success they expected him to be. Maybe rat boy gets a bit or serious competition next year, KTM, Ducati, possibly Suzuki and yamaha, Honda will take some beating for me though Jon

Yep, MM is apparently coming back at Aragon so he can help Honda build a 2021 bike specifically for him.
Espargero will obviously fully approve it #?•₩#?
That will be the ****ers garage next year, no way those 2 will get on.
Hope rumours are right then as zarco is my favourite rider, be nice to see him and Miller going at it.
Mrs loves quateraro which is weird as his chest is like the Mojave desert whereas mine is like the new Forrest.....

Interesting one Jon, guess he still has race pace

KTM seem to have a very good bike there and I think they could be a serious challenge to Honda if they can get the right rider. Is that Dovi, mmmmm?

I was watching WSB yesterday and they were talking about a conversation with a team manger who had been around the block a bit. When they choose a rider they are looking for the next talent who will beat and be the next MM. Otherwise they could just sign any rider. Makes you think, if KTM are that serious, they have to be, is Dovi their man at 31?

Mir is starting to look good and I canít see any reason why he would leave Suzuki. FQ has signed, FM?

Not sure, it will be interesting to see who really goes where

Hi All

Just seen the talks between Dovi and KTM have broken down over money.
I think his manager is pricing him out of a ride, be a shame if he's not on the grid next year, but what options does he have now for next year???
Aprillia?, Suzuki?
Seems the Dovi story doesn't end well
At least Rossi signed the 2 years yesterday

Forgot to add before, Vinales said he had 4 warnings of the brakes failing before the off, personally I think he should have come in or been made to by the race director. Imagine carrying on knowing and something awful happens :-(

Cost Mir the race did that

Iím guessing ViŮales just plain **** himself. Bike over his head last week, jumping off the bike this week, brake failure. Not looking good for Yamaha either, engines, not enough top end, no wonder they are struggling. When the non factory bikes are doing well they should know they have problems

And once again, especially WSB and BSB the Ducati V4 is just like cheating for me, so high revving and the straight line speed just blows everything else out of the water although the new Honda seems to be catching up, seems to be

Yeah, felt for Mir but you have to ask why they didn't have a tyre in reserve JIC. I know races aren't often split but even so, it certainly helped Miller in part 2.

I'm still trying to decide if Vinales went over to his bike and put his head in his hands out of a, shock, or B frustration the bike wasn't still o.k...inspite of being on fire at the time

Agree with the blind crests, odd how these things aren't already in place in this day and age.

Well, just watched the highlights from yesterday. Brake failure and jumping off a bike at 130mph must be a hell of a shocker. Last time I saw that it was Eugene Laverty in WSP

Disappointed for Mir he deserved that win

Air bags in place too. Did a proper job on saving ViŮales bike until it set on fire

Iím guessing thatís the next area for review, straights that have the potential to run over corners if the worst happens. Thought the same afterwards, thought they would have some kind of protection. Quite a dangerous track

The blind summits are another one too as the Moto 2 crash. Maybe a flashing sign above the track on blind summits or a least a flag man on them?

Not been on for a while.

The crash last week, why aren't there airbags/tires across those long run offs before right hand corners, even half way along them would minimise the risk. Unsighting the corner slightly would be a small price to pay.

Really enjoying the races at the mo, so glad that MM is side lined for a while, had become a tad stale for me.

Vinales jumping off

Hi Chris,

I think this weekend kinda proved the point I was trying to make, all the vr46 babies were calling for Masia to be banned for the season for dumping the oil on the track,(absolute stupid crap), Martin loses a moto2 win by going green by inches thus promoting a vr46 baby for the win and polis espargero is at least 4ft of track on the final lap and gets no penalty at all?????

And clicky, whoever had the great idea to put the 2 most despised riders in the same garage is an absolute advertising genius, polis and rat boy 2021, I'm gonna love it........

rossi is taking fabios seat at pertronas,fabio taking rossis seat at factory Yamaha with vinales. as for zarcos pit lane start, thats down to dorna. the Spanish Moto gp mafia..both espargaro brothers get away scot free from their pissing about.alex holding up Petrucci on the racing line looking for a tow. pol again whinging about zarco taking him out, while yet he went wide then came back on the racing line without looking..pol espagaros actions after last weeks red flag was terrible. moaning about race being stopped while he was in the lead.. I really don't know why hrc Honda gave him a factory seat next to mm93 next season..the bloke is a nightmare..

I would not have thought that would influence a decision like that or would hope not. Fast part of the course and major rider error.

Im guessing after that Jon the VR46 gang will be the stuff of legend. Reckon he will be done this year after that, i will be very surprised if he does not quit

Hi Chris

I definitely do get your point of view, but "fault" for last weekend's crash is questionable imo, you can argue either way

There's been a lot of very poor and obvious driver error incidents in all classes this year that have caused crashes, incidents and dnf's

The only time punishments seems to be dished out is when the vr46 gang pipe up. The Mcfee podium was because they were causing a stink about track limits and that ultimately backfired on vieti

Race control come across as being influenced by vr46 at the moment

Not sure Jon myself

Maybe itís to set the benchmark, Iím not sure?

One thing for sure, for a rider of that quality that was an horrendous error which could have killed two riders?

There are risks with motorsport no doubt, thatís what makes it exciting but on reflection that was just reckless for me, massive error

Zarco starting from the pits is just moto gp bowing down to what's becoming the VR46 mafia

Does the Vali legend really want this to be his legacy?

The moto 2 crash was awful and they were doing CPR on one of the riders in the initial pictures before they said everyone was conscious.
Rossi used up his 9th life and it showed on his face..........
Happy for Dovi though, not sure how it helps anything, but I've got a soft spot for the old dog

Hi Rich

They've got the Lorenzo rumour going on here as well, but surely Ducati desperately need to move forward not back. They'll be phoning Fogarty next

Well, just watched the highlights from Brno

Factory bikes, you donít want a factory bike

Very interesting and different race that. TBH I expected the factory bikes coming though at the end and dominating but they did not have the set up of the non factory boys for me which is pretty amazing really, refreshingly different

Honda?

I bet they were all planning on picking a few points up while rat boy is out, left the door wide open for him

Possibly, the Honda thing certainly didnít work out for him. Think I read it somewhere, he had scared himself too many times?

A comeback and results would answer that I guess

wouldn't say he lost his bottle, maybe just wanted a year out to rest and cure his back..said retiring to jump ship his Honda contract maybe..but I agree he would be good on that suzuki..pol espagaro signing for hrc has been my biggest shock..why they chose him I cant fathom out? push cal out with the hump maybe? @ vossy,they might get chucked out yet not walk away

Funny, I was talking to the Mrs about his factory ride...do you think it'll make him better or worse...hmm. I'd love to see Suzi up ther again competing, thought they were on the up, maybe not.

@Clicky, Yamaha...what they hell...mad isn't it. I'm not sure given what has been seen as a factory advantage they should be allowed a dispensation to open them up, but I guess money talks and for Yamaha to walk away it would not be good.

it's not even factory bikes proving the point...all very odd

Looks like they have a decent bike and set up for him. We will see when he has a factory ride next season

Imagine what he could earn from Suzuki who want to make their mark

Rat boy still the best at the moment for me with somebody who looks a very close second at the moment

As the commentators said, Dovi might be regretting not putting pen to paper with that result
Great to see the GOAT on the podium again, defended brilliantly for that place.
Lorenzo situation...odd one, going to take a while for him to be back up to pace if he does.

So is it the riders or is it the bikes...MM and Fabio look well above race pace, 5+ seconds is massive, can't believe there are so few riders who can compete, and now it's not even factory bikes proving the point...all very odd.

Yamaha 1,2 and 3. Quatararo, another win, Viniales 2nd and Rossi takes third!

If rat boy hadn't crashed out I reckon he would have pissed it though, looked fast again...

Quatararo on pole again by the looks of it. Vinales has a lot to prove for me. He was going to be the next big thing, he has to make it happen this season for me. Dovi is in 14th place so he looks well off the pace. You could think the bike but Bagnaia is third on a Ducati

For me a factory Honda is still the benchmark and MM is so good because he is the best of managing his tyres and thatís a massive chunk of what itís all about for me

If MM does miss at least this weekend, what do people think of Doviís chances? He did well on a non-Ducati track and is a consistent podium finisher. Ducati could have already dropped the 2020 champion.

What great re start...unless your a MM fan To be fair I really enjoyed MM coming back all the way through the pack (through gritted teeth) would have been a hell of a finish if he pulled it off.
Really pleased for Quartararo, overdue and a talent to watch, hopefully he'll take it to MM and make the season a bit more enjoyable rather than the white wash it's been lately.
Odd listening to the issues re contracts on the BT Sport coverage.

Hi All

Just caught the end of FP1, was i correct in hearing Zarco will be on a honda for the last 3 races this year and has turned down the yamaha test ride for next year?

Zarco to replace Lorenzo 2020???????

That'd be more than Quateraro to worry about in 2020 for MM

Lovin it if true..........

Huge amount of respect for what he's done in FP2 after that crash in FP1 though

Agree with all of that mate, Ireland has certainly changed from when I first went there over fifty years ago, its a shame but then again its across the globe maccy d's etc....are everywhere now, in saying that I was in Copenhagen a few months ago and don't remember seeing a single chicken house and rarely saw any overweight people, did notice the women are stunning so they must be doing something right over there
Going back to bikes though Ireland has got fantastic roads for touring but the modern world has cameras everywhere so you have to watch your speed wherever you go, also its all about population and we're far too over populated here in the south east of England to enjoy the freedom of the open road these days, i'm sure France is still great in parts and somewhere i always wanted to tour by bike but never managed to is central Spain, judging by the bits ive seen by going to a few Moto GP races at Valencia and Catalunya the roads are fantastic

I was living in southern Ireland from 90 to 95 as I have said on here before I was a service engineer in the silicon chip and pharmaceutical industry. Intel built it European manufacturing base just outside Dublin in a place called leixlip. Traveled all over Ireland while living there and went back many times to support the maintenance team we had trained but from 90 to 2000 eu money helped changed Ireland and created a massive boom in house building and new roads ect but a lot of the character and charm of the country was lost. When I first went there were no McDonald's, kentucky or dominoes etc. In 95 when I returned I still had a yam fz750 and 95 was also the year the 600 bandit was launched but the roads and Ireland were already changing rapidly.

Do it mate, its stunning over there, but if you do it on a bike I'd keep it to the summer months as it can get a bit rough weather wise at this time of year, i'm over there later on this month, driving over in a car though...if the weather gets bad there's always the pubs! Only thing i'm not looking forward to is the ferry crossings if its rough

when we drove down to the south of france , a couple of my mates had Hyabusa's and we were sling shotting each other at 140 and riding at 100 after a while felt like walking pace...utter madness really and like you say we had to stop for fuel every 80 to 100 miles, I think we re-traced the Fast Bikes video Colin Schiller did with Shakey Byrne and Frosty called Carnage-Calais to Cannes, if you ever get a chance to watch it, they were all a right bunch of nutters!
I never forget pulling into St Tropez all on bikes with loud pipes, parking up and sitting in a cafť on the front drinking coffee watching the so called 'beautiful people' walking past...we definitely attracted some attention....like I say I miss it a lot!

Ha ha ha that's funny cos I remember going to Ireland on my Bandit long before the roads were as good as they are now, rode over to Connemarra and spent a lot of the time riding on the pegs as it was a nightmare sitting down with the state the roads were in back then, I used to think all the Paddy road workers were over here and there own roads were shyteÖ.no longer the case as I drive over twice a year these days and the roads are great...all with our money on the EU!

Mates and I have been all over Europe and in the past it was always sports bikes but we were younger then and too daft to realise it would be more enjoyable on tourers and stopping every 90 to 100 miles for fuel adds huge amounts of time to journeys. Modern adventure bikes are as comfortable as tourers and with 150+ hp they are capable of keeping up with most sports bike riders over distance.
Some of the guys we ride with are in their seventies and been riding all their lives and are still capable of riding at a good pace for eight to ten hours a day so long as there a shower, a good meal and a few beers at the end of the day.

Really sorry to hear that pal. I get your point though, dizzy spells and bikes are not ideal.

TBH l love bikes with a passion but they can be bloody dangerous, couple this with idiot car drivers and you are safer without one really

Another one has just been round Ireland on his 600 bandit about 3 months ago, bullet proof, uses it for track days at Caldwell too

Same lad also has a 1200 bandit with a turbo on, home made jobby, mental lol

I rode to Switzerland on a 600 Bandit years ago, god knows what I was thinking but great memories none the less, got snowed in for three days in a place called Lauenen near Gstaad
Also rode a Blackbird down to the South of France, we went down on the A75, stunning rd in parts apart from it was while they were building the Millau viaduct so on that part the traffic was horrendous...even on a bike, other parts were like a race track and another obstacle were the nutty French yoofs in their zooped up motors wanting to race anything fast down the mountain parts of the roads, we were warned about them before we went and it was bang on, the temptation to race with them was strong though
I remember riding back up from Nice to Troyes about 420 miles in one day and thinking nothing of it back then but I bought another Blackbird in 2008 and went to Silverstone for the Moto GP race and on the ride home to south east London my knees were shot and that was only 120 miles, that was when I realised that my days of riding anything near to a sportsbike were well and truly over...sadly, i still miss those sort of trips to this day
A work colleague has bought himself a BMW GS and loves it but they're not cheap, especially if its kitted out, i was tempted but cant get it down my side alley to the back of the house and don't really want twelve grands worth of bike sitting out the front....poxy cylinder heads!
Oh and i meant to add that i was one of the fizzy brigade, mine was a purple version crashed it after spunking my wages in a bookies! luckily i saw sense and that life is long in the past now...the dangers of gambling hey!. And back then another mate had an RD 250 which you could ride with L plates on a provisional licence....can you believe it?!!!!

Might take you up on your offer then you would surprised

Started a new job just over 12 months ago, the previous place there were a few lads with adventure bikes, me been a sports bike nob I didnít go with them, they did Croatia, stunning ride, places and pictures etc. They did France and Belgium and the war stuff too, missed out on a couple of real life experiences there if Iím honest. I love my bike and bikes but like I say, if I get another next year it will be something along the lines of a sport tourer, just need to find one that I really like thatís all

We left on Saturday morning in sunshine and had good weather and only saw a shower on Wednesday and two Thursday but two more heavier ones Friday on way home and told it has been bad down south. The roads were great and very little traffic, the food was great and dirt cheap compared with the rip off south.

Well, back from the 500 Scotland, 2000 miles. If anybody here know any of the film crew making the crown program for Netflix please say a massive thanks from me. The hotel we stopped at a mile from John o'groats saw us in the bar and these people were in there on their last night and 2 were playing guitar's and harmonica and singing, mostly sixties to eighties stuff that none of them looked old enough to have known, the petite shy blond was fantastic, only wish I had taken my phone and video's it. Ramdom night added to a great trip I will never forget.

I think Jorge will call it a day at the end of this season.and I wouldn't blame him. I always thought he shouldn't of moved from Ducati to join Honda,he had the bike sorted and would of been a big threat to Marquez.as much as I admire Marquez as a pilot I don't like the behind the scenes of Honda. I think, and its a big think, they threw **** loads of money at Lorenzo just to fck him up..id love for him to get fit, join Suzuki or even back to Yamaha then flick the middle finger up at honda. he was 45 seconds behind Marquez at argon riding with a broken back he has nothing to be ashamed of..his a class rider and id like to see him back on the grid when fit.

Just see a interview with Lorenzo. Thought he was going to burst into tears. The guy has lost it heís a broken rider and it looks like he might not come back from it. He is so far of the pace for someone thatís a 5 time world champ. Think that last fall where he broke his back has broke him too. Hopefully I am wrong and once again we will see him back on top.

I think Rossi left Honda because at the time he wanted a two year extension on his contract and they were only willing to offer him a one year extension which was madness seeing as he was winning races at the time but being the giants they are they stuck to their guns, he left a winning bike for a bike that wasn't winning and along with Burgess turned Yamaha into a winning team, it will be interesting to see if Marquez ever manages to do the same. Marquez used to idolise Rossi but I think he treats him with disrespect now, considering Rossi goes a long way to making Moto GP what it is today, like ive said before lets wait and see the slump in figures when he retires
As for hooligans, I witnessed some disgraceful drunkard behaviour at Donnington in 2001 when the tossers set fire to a load of portaloo's, in fact it was a frightening atmosphere which ive never experienced at a Spanish GP, I was camped out and had ****ers chucking up outside my tent.....nice!
And speaking of 2001 lets also not forget that Rossi was winning on the old 500cc machines which were far harder to ride than todays bikes, that's not to say MM wouldn't have won on them as well but it also just shows Rossi's longevity....2001 ff's sake.....my hair was jet black then....sadly its gone grey now!

Money is massive. Once watched a Colin Edwards interview, he said a motor GP team bike would have diamond encrusted brake callipers on if they thought they needed it, in comparison to a WSB which he said it was like riding round in an armchair lol

Enjoy your ride, nice

Is that your Multistrada then?

Done it and the factory when at the world ducati bike week. Some seriously wealthy people with some seriously expensive ducati's but I'm one of the poor relations, I actually ride mine though which is unusual as the the average owner seems to only do a thousand miles a year while I'll probably double that next week.

Trouble is money, the financial gap number one in a team and number two can be massive and often this is done on purpose to create rivalry.
Anyway I'm off on a multistrada from home on South Coast to Scotland on Saturday, do the 500 and hope to go up through the lake district, only rules of the tour no motorway or dual carriageways.

Agreed, it was Burgess that made that bike work race after race. As for MM celebration in front of that stand come on, after all the booing and geering he has endured from them and the snide off camera jibes from rossi why not, it's exactly the type of thing Rossi would have done in his heyday but he would of had the chosen few of his entourage there with him.

I think what Rossi did with Yamaha was unreal, took them to another level and got the results. I wonder f he put his hand on his heart who was his best bike and team ever, Iím gonna go for Honda, faultless at the time and another one, why would you leave such a successful combination?

What Iím saying is I wonder where he would have gone with Honda if he had stayed there?

Fans, trouble is when fans have their hero, be it moto gp, football, boxing etc very few can look at another competitor and and admit a rival is more highly skilled or has a superior natural talent. When rossi was winning rivals claimed the yamaha was so much better than the rest of the grid, now they say Honda is but the fact is very few are capable of riding any of these machines and fewer still capable of winning but when someone wins consistently they are a special talent.

As much as I respect mms riding skills he will never have a folllowing like rossi. Even in the spanish races his support puts more bums on seats. I was in san marino the weekend and the amount of money his support puts into the surrounding towns bars cafes hotels etc is astounding. Not to mention what his shop in talvuela took off me :/

Sounds like itís clear cut, you like rat boy, I like Rossi

Best all round bike, Honda are miles ahead and have been for a long time, forget Cal C the only thing they have in common is itís a bike with a Honda badge on, one is absolute cutting edge the other is not, as for Lorenzo, lost the plot

What did Honda do with Ducatiís dominance, designed the SP1 / 2 created a twin And bet Ducati at their own game.

WSB Honda are designing a new bike and poaching Batista from Ducati. Bet you they blow Ducati next season

Pointless discussion, opinions, show me some facts

I bet Hondas R&D blow the others away

And the most talented rider ever on it, funny though as the Honda is supposed to be the hardest bike on the grid to ride, ask Crutchlow or lorenzo, neither has really mastered it. Conversely the yamaha is supposed to be the easiest most forgiving, as they have tried to get the straight line speed from it the handling has deteriorated which is why I said before rossi never should have parted from the real doctor who made it work for him.

To put it in perspective Marquez has got to win around forty more races to catch Rossi's win total and will he still be racing and be as competitive at forty? I very much doubt it, lets see if he ever goes to anther team and wins, clearly he is a great racer but the youth will be snapping at his heels very soon, Quartararo for one
I think its obvious Rossi is past his best but he just loves racing so you have to respect him for that and he is probably responsible for at least an extra 25% or more on the gate figures at every Moto GP race, in fact I would go as far as to say a lot of todays racers owe a lot to him in terms of earnings. Moto GP will be a lot poorer for the day he goes. I cant remember the last time I saw a celebration at the end of the race like he used to do when he was winning, Lorenzo tried it once or twice but it wasn't quite the same
I might be biased....I live at number 46!

Certainly got that bike in shape quickly, another decent rider with Rins and who knows, next season they could dominate

I would love to see Rossi on one just to see what he could get out of it

yes good win for suziki,rins can certainly get the best out of that bike..id say Lorenzo could to. but what with his injury and backing off testing today due to his injury I wouldn't blame him iff he called it all a day soon..rossi must of went home for a cup coffee then popped back to the race..11 seconds down lets hope he can do better at his home race in a couple of weeks..ill be in the Rossi stand wearing my cal crutchlow top.

Still no podium and 11 seconds down, five dnf's also helped his 4th place. Great last lap again. Feel for Dovi, taken out twice by someone else's mistake.

Nice to see mate, something fresh

Regarding the bike, not sure, thought it could have been a brake calliper problem? If it was a chassis problem that was a serious set up error, even so, great ride under the circumstances

Deffo one to watch, came from Moto 3 and then 2, not exactly pulled any trees up though, bit sporadic, but hey, who cares

Due to moving home I've only watched 1 race and the highlights of Assen,where the hell did Fabio come from He reminds of Stoner taming the Duc from time ago, how he didn't have a 'off' is beyond me, a talent for sure,looking forward to seeing more of him.

Watched the highlights last night, been away.

I was hoping Rins was going to win until he ditched it lol. Be nice to see a Suzuki ride for Rossi next season out with Mir

Disappointment again for young Fabio, what was wrong with that bike, all over! future star in the making though that lad

I do agree he shouldn't of parted with burgess at the time when Yamaha engines were at there best, this year they ****ed up and chose a engine what is well below par . but they cant change due to Moto gp being run by the Spanish, say no more lol.

He was at the top for so long and he is clearly no longer the best, to my ming he never should have ended the partnership with his engineer. His race school has massive potential and I feel his time could be better spent there freeing up a potential ride for a younger hungry rider. His level of fitness may be high for his age but the older anyone gets the longer it takes to recover if the unfortunate happens.

I disagree with that, why should Rossi retire, ? his still the leading Yamaha rider overall. and was last year plus year before. he still enjoys competing and dare I say his level of fitness is above most 40yr olds..id say he won't ever get that 10th tital but as long as his enjoying himself he should carry on. Lin Jarvis gave a few clues away yesterday that Rossi is already testing parts for next year.

Three yamaha's in the top five and vr fails to finish, with cameras on the bikes I don't he had much choice but to hold his hands up. Personal opinion but I feel he should have retire a couple of seasons ago.

I was pleased vinales got that
he had a good weekend overall. but christ that Rossi and nakagmi crash was fooking fast. glad to see both riders ok.. Rossi has held his hand up and said he was responsible. not that I like seeing riders fall it would of been interesting to see it from different camera angles. bit strange when all bikes have onboard cameras.

Highlights on Quest on Tuesday for me

Lorenzoís best ride of the season then he takes everybody out. I was hoping Rins was going to take second on the Suzuki, did well until he run wide

Nice to see Dean Harrison win if Iím honest, especially since the bike breakdown last year. No doubting Hickman and the BMW round there though, getting faster but also going kerb to kerb nearly in a lot of areas

I watch the WSB too, the new BMW is proving incredibly unreliable

WSB race 2 today and BSB next week for any bike racing fans.

Mugello was a very interesting race, I was expecting a Ducati 1, 2 on home soil. Nice win for Petruuci though, not so good for Dovi, championship points and all

Let's have a moto gp with a pitstop thrown in the middle of it too really test the teams, 4 laps of the Isle of man with 100 points for the win 60 second 40 third should be interesting.

Lorenzo should of stayed at Ducati, took him a while to get used to it but he then sussed it. as for mm93 yes his a **** hot rider and woke up a very boring Moto gp grid after moving up from Moto 2 but his wild style of riding could end up with him getting a serious injury.

Agree

Makes you wonder what Stoner could have really done. Reguarding Rossi he will go down as a great, I just think he could have won a couple more titles with different decisions

The way how Marquez is going I expect him to eclipse Rossi

One thing in common though, all exceptional riders

Stoner won the title on the ducati and then became to ill to compete and retired but as the ducati development rider was still often setting faster lap times than the official team guys. Rossi was a wild card in his early days and always used mind games and his massive fan base to intimidate rivals, he also has a huge unseen legal and publicity team to surpress any negative publicity. Is he the best ever? Who knows but he is by far the best business man ever to grace the top step of the podium.

Stoner couldnít ride the Ducati in the end and get the results, enter Rossi, he couldnít either, crap bike the Ducati in those years, terrible chassis and handling

MM is a great rider no doubt, he is also a wild card and had more warnings than anybody around, like his smash in the 250 class when he ran into the back of a bike that was virtually stood. Thatís when he ****ed his eye sight up from the impact, nearly ended his career

Heís on the factory Honda, one hell of a bike, the best! And thatís the test for MM, step away, but why should he?

Watch hitting the Apex. Great watch for any Moto GP fans, great stories of all their progressions, lot of truths

Just the Simoncelli incident, terrible

Rossi left Yamaha because they wanted him to be the number 2 rider and mentor



Hope this works a must watch

Rossi wanted to prove it wasn't just the bike which he did with yamaha but then failed with ducati. The rossi fan base will never agree but MM is the most talented rider ever in moto gp.
Would love to see him try the classiest bike on the grid.

I still think Rossi should of stayed with Honda especially with the rc45 he had at the time

That was my point earlier, could have probably won everything

Works Honda is a far superior allround bike imho. Ducati, straight line power. Put MM on a Yamaha he would struggle for a top 3. But thatís racing for you, man and bike

I watch the WSB, Batista on the new V4 has won the first 9 races, revs to over 16,5000 rpm!!!. Heís had 12 second plus leads, unbelievable. Chaz Davis, mistake after mistake running wide, straight line power pulls him back up there with the leaders, crazy!

Should be interesting

Been out on my bike today and watched the qualifying in a local bikers cafe. Rain will mean a completely different story. Ducati for out and out power on the straights and slower corner speeds maybe due to the rain?

Down to the rider if it pours for me, letís hope itís a classic

Cruthlow up there again too

Hi All

Seems they've just confirmed it's gonna be a wet race tomorrow and that's if it goes ahead with possible storms etc. I'm kinda thinking qually is going to stand for nothing, more a war of attrition on such a fast track and the power bikes will have most problems. No data on the best wet weather bike / rider combo so early in the season either, predictions anybody?

good win for dovi even with it being as close as last year against mm, well chuffed for cal lets hope he can keep it up throughout the season..rins seems he could be a threat this year but his sit up and beg riding style cracks me up..rossi 14th to 5th..well it was Sunday nothing else to expect, he likes Sundays when the racing hits the Europe tracks I then think mm is going to start getting 1sts agin, the duke of dovi and petruci looks so slow coming out of the corners..overall though a very enjoyable weekends racing in all classes..

Looks like itís going to be a good year. The pack at the front was very tight and more bikes involved there too. Well done to crutchlow heís been riding so much better the last couple of seasons not the mad head he was at tech and Ducati he seems to stay on the bike a lot more now days
Great win for dovi carbon copy of last years race Shame the newboy stalled his bike at the warm lap. Great things coming from that kid and only 19 wow.
Rossi did well and came close to a podium. And Marquez still mad for a win on the Honda will come in the next race
And I do like jack miller bet his a great laugh when off camera always positive liked him when he was doing a bit on camera last year

All in all a great start Welcome back MotoGP

Big up for Luthi, after that article on his performance in Moto GP saying he had no place in the sport.
What a ride, he needed 1 more lap and baldasari was done.
Very interesting re Gardner's tyres as well, they just died in the last 2 laps

Very successful rider, but like you say, the Ducati dominated, was a revelation at the time compared to the competition

Just looked at a 1299 today and a 959

Zx10r and S1000rr yesterday. Think I might get an Aprilia RSV4 this year, sound sublime, what an engine

Foggy/ducati held the podium record, 100, for 18 years and others were on ducati's at the time so I would argue it was the rider, having met him I would say his level of determination and commitment were higher than anyone else he rode against. The Honda has also had a reputation as an animal to ride which maybe why Danny was bitten by it so many times.

The bikes the biggest part for me and those Hondaís are exceptional, no doubt, If Rossi and MM were on the same bike then that would be the test. Agree though, MM is a great rider, letís see how he fairs against Lorenzo, I expect his talent to shine

As for the bikes, look what Batista has just done in WSB, that V4 Ducati is untouchable on the straights, canít compete, 15 second gap! and Rea riding the tyres off it

Same when Foggy was riding them, different league at the time, his Moto GP career says it all

Disagree, it's the person on the bike that makes the real difference. Stoner proved this winning the title on a machine nobody including Rossi could ride. Let's also not forget Rossi had a machine developed for him that was superior to anything else including the one has team mate rode. Love or loathe MM he is the most talented rider I've seen since I started watching in the early seventies and let's not look back with Rose tints on as Rossi has taken out his share of riders over the years and used his mind games and huge fan base to intimidate rivals.

Hi Chris

Had a text from a friend who works in Doha and the wind is blowing a lot of sand onto the track, not going to get better tomorrow for the race by all accounts. Looks like it's going to be survival of the fittest. I don't think qualifying will have much bearing on any of the race class results, gonna be a tyre weekend I think

High side, not good at all John

Mainly the rear wheel slipping and then gripping

Mind you though, the introduction of the air bag suits is a big step forward imho. Think its Lorenzo on the Alpinestars site, 150mph high side, air bag goes off and he walks away

So much power those bikes, unreal, donít seem to come off them as much as the 500cc two stokes though, they were mental. I would love a go on one, steady away though

Interesting re the Yam and Rossi, I saw his pre season practice interview the other day and he was less than happy with it and the read up said it was full of problems, similar to M...hope they get it sorted.

"Do you have a bike yourself John, think we may have discussed this in the past?"

No and no

My uncle is Derek Edwards of Lotus fame in f2 maybe f1 I'm not 100% sure

Followed Rossi for years though, the word legend in both carp fishing and almost all other sports is so over used, but in Ross's case it's the only one that should have a hashtag and Yamaha should be sponsoring it

Nice one John

Hopefully I will be going to the UK events again.

Do you have a bike yourself John, think we may have discussed this in the past?

No. 46 for me

Hi Chris

Agreed,

Kornfeil in moto3 did well as well (we know him) but my favourite rider Zarco seems to be on an alien machine, I think he was 22nd.

Gonna be a great season though if today was anything to go by, lots of mentions of Lorenzo being injured, but nothing on the net to what the injury is though? He's still fast though

Best

Love it mate and WSB

Rossi is king for me, Rat boy has been on the best bike for a long time. What he has done for Yamaha is something else

GOAT

Hi All

Anyone interested?

Just watched FP1, wow what a start to the season. Rossi, Lorenzo and Marquez were deffinately trying to put markers down and weren't mucking about.
The doctor comes out on top, if Yamaha have fixed the tyre wear problem this could be a great season

Best

Jon
