- Great Spanish MotoGP
Were you guys watching the same race as me? If that had been an F1 race you’d all have been on here slating it for the lack of overtaking, the huge gaps between cars for most of it and the fact that supposedly the best drivers in the world can’t hold it together when it’s wet. But oh no, this is MotoGP so that was ‘fantastic’. Right.Posted 7 years agothepuristSubscriber
There will always be more overtaking in bike racing than car racing – bikes are iddy biddy skinny little things whereas cars are about 6 feet wide, so it’s harder to defend a position on a bike and you don’t need to go as far off line to pass. I should perhaps have said lack of competitive passing – most of the time it was just Rossi whazzing past someone who was clearly slower, with little or no effort from the passed rider to keep him behind. Yawn.Posted 7 years agoalmightydutchMember
I cant believe some of the comments, how can you say its easy to pass on a bike? I presume there are a few non motorbike riders or even better, non bike racers!!!
If you’ve ever experienced motorbike racing then you’ll know full well how hard it is to pass. On about tiny little things, yes they are smaller but youc ant just change lines like with a car. Everything that happens is more fluid when you on a bike. You have to think in ‘arcs’ as thats the only way a bike will turn.
Anyway, cracking GP race as per usual. Thought Stoner was quite magnanimus in his little speech to Vale. I think if the tides were turned then Rossi wouldnt have been the same. He would have been slating him for an idiotic pass. Which in all fairness considering he was 50yards back at the start of the straight just shows that even the great one can make errors in judgement.
Anyway, cracking result for the Brits over the weekend, gutted for Scott redding but Bradders did aawesome for his 2nd Moto 2 race and for Danny Kent and taylor Mackenzie to get 4th and 5th was awesome!!!!Posted 7 years agomrblobbyMember
“Obviously your ambition outweighed your talent”.
Typical rider banter I reckon, of which Rossi is usually the master. I’m sure he was equally complimentary about Elias’s riding when the same thing happened between Elias and Rossi a few years back.
yer carp race. you would make a great presenter.
Better than those two muppets on the BBC anyway. Actually Parish is ok, just can’t stand Charlie Cox. Unlistenable drivel.Posted 7 years ago
