Re: 2012 Round 17 Phillip Island Race Topic ***Spoilers***

Am I the only one around here not hoping the sky falls in on Lorenzo this weekend. The guy has run the perfect season and deserves to be champ. I hope it goes to the last round, but not through the misfortune of Jorge. And I don't think there will be any team orders from HRC. I'm sure they'll be per...

Re: On "Factory" CRT's

My personal bet would be 25% chassis and 80% engine/electronics. I agree with you. it seems impossible for them to catch up as the the numbers don't add up :mrgreen: I still think the chassis is the problem, the CRTs look like they have hopeless corner speed at every track. For example, the BQR is ...

Re: 2012 Round 15 Motegi Race Topic ***Spoilers***

Crutchlow is one of the smaller guys, I doubt he weighs more than a few kgs more than the front runners. Lorenzo trying to pop wheelies with him on the back was pretty funny. Spies season continues to be one of the worst I can remember for a factory rider. Outbraking himself at the start of the race...

Re: 2012 Round 15 Motegi Race Topic ***Spoilers***

I had to laugh at the onboard replay of Spies crash. I don't know how he did it - it looked like something a learner rider would do in a gravel carpark.

Crutchlow is impressive to watch, but in the race he's going to outbrake himself and Dovi will beat him again.

Go Dani!

Re: Crutchlow to WSB?

Good luck to him for speaking his mind, but he's is kidding himself if he thinks he's entitled to a factory ride after getting well and truly beat by Dovi. Crutchlow should be grateful for an offer of the Tech3 seat, I bet DePuniet would be more than happy to take it off his hands...

Re: 2012 Round 10 USGP Laguna Seca Race Topic ***Spoilers***

I thought Rossi's crash was very unusual too, seemed to go down very early on approach to the corkscrew. I was a bit worried about the way he started walking aimlessly back towards the top of the track like he wasn't sure about what a dangerous spot he was in. I think if he has a genuine Yamaha offe...

WSBK better hope Spies doesn't return to the series and win first year back. Because that will truely cement it's position as a second rate series for washed up MotoGP riders.

Bradl's pass back on Hayden made the race for me.

Re: Silly season 2013

Dovi deserves the factory seat at Yamaha, but I think Spies will get it thanks to his US passport. A lot is made of the advantages given to up and coming Spanish riders and the like (including from Ben), but the factories value having riders with ties to the American market. Not to say they don't de...

Failing Assens and Sachsenring type outcomes, even Tech3 would be competing for 5th on down positions. The CRT thingy is supposed to put everyone on a more equal footing and chance of winning races.

Does anyone else get the feeling watching Crutchlow that he's going to have a few massive offs before the season is over. He looks like he's pushing so hard behind Dovi that he's going to run into the back of him just about every corner. :shock: Well done to Bradl for holding that chasing pack at ba...

Re: CRT - The new prototypes

The last 3 races, the first prototype has finished 1:08, 1:04 and 1:03 behind the winner. Those include some higher speed / horsepower circuits, so things could get interesting if they can get closer at one of the slower tracks. Any thoughts on which tracks are the best for the underpowered CRT bik...

I'd prefer a grid with app. twelve factory and satellite bikes filled up with customer RCVs and M1s than having the grid fillers we have know.
