Possibly the funniest thing I've read on ADVrider.

Thanks!

Schwantz has a point, but in this instance its at the top of his head. Can't imagine why he felt the need to come out and slang Dani just for pointless prognostication. Nothing good could come of it. What a dork. His wandering piece on Soup is more Chatty Cathy dross.

Schwartz was a great racer. Lots of personality, exciting to watch, the whole package.

Unfortunately, as a former champion he tends to run his yapper too much. He is entitled to his opinion, but he has to realize when it comes across as negative for no apparent reason. This would have been one of those times.

Pedrosa may never win the MotoGP title, but Schwantz doesn't need to heap it on him. It just sounds petty.

Guess Schwantz didnt have anything better to talk about at his pity party so he bashed a big name rider. He probably took breaks between talking trash about COTA and Dani to speak about the good old days when he wasnt a bitter asshole

I didn't read it as a slam of Pedrosa as much as a slam of Puig.

Even if he had never raced, Schwantz is right about DP.
More importantly, his ridicule may be the push DP needs.

Heading into Jerez, with 3 Spaniards duking it out, this could be the best indicator yet of who the next world champion may be.
For DP, it's win it or bin it time.

Now that would make for some very exciting racing!

Would be interesting to see Dani take out his teammate, wait he's done that one before.

Frankly, as well as Marquez has done so far it doesn't look good for Pedrosa to beat the kid in points this year. Dani's window of opportunity is disappearing nearly as quickly as Rossi's.

If Pedrosa was the kind of rider who needed that kind of push, he would have retired a long time ago.

"He hasn't won anything in eight years" -- while it wasn't meant literally, it's obviously wrong-headed on two levels: 1) it shows disrespect to the sport by dismissing the champions of intermediate classes; 2) it shows arrogance on Schwantz' part by not realizing Pedrosa's results are quite comparable to his, and that the difference between his only title and Pedrosa's none is a matter of chance as much as ability.

Puig was right to tear him a new one.

Yep. I have great respect for Schwantz but he was clearly out of line and perhaps a bit hypocritical. As pointed out (without Rainey's tragic career ending accident) he came very close to becomming another Randy Mammola...in possibly being the fastest guy to not win a championship. For Schwantz, Rainey's incredible speed and consistancy lapsed just once...for Dani Pedrosa, Lorenzo's didn't.

I tend to think what Schwantz meant to say was "He hasn't won any MotoGP championships in 7 years on a factory Honda"? Which is perfectly accurate. 8 years ago he was on a 250. He was 2 for 2 in the 250WC, only raced '04 and '05 and won them both!

And if it wasn't for Doohan nearly loosing his leg Rainey would have had one less championship. One could say that if Kevin hadn't crashed so much he would have taken another championship away from Rainey. Where does this line of "logic" end? I see a lot of "ifs, and buts" when this argument against Kevin is brought up. What happens is. A championship is won by the person who accumulates the most points by the end of the season, however that happens. In the top GP class Kevin has. Dani, has not. That's all the comparision that needs to happen because, ultimately, that's what a top level GP rider's job is. To win the championship. Dani is still racing so maybe he'll pull it off. I, like Kevin from what I'm reading, believe that he has the talent to do so. But it hasn't happened, and may never if something doesn't change for Dani.

It seems Schwantz is definitely playing the part of the stone throwing glass house owner! These championships go down to the single point (1/2 point in WSB last year!) and can be won and lost by a single pass or DNF. That said, Pedrosa has three titles to his credit and is not done yet. As we saw last year in the premier class he has gained consistancy with his speed and no longer winning one weekend and crashing (or no where to be seen) the next. In fact he has become more of an Eddie Lawson then a Kevin Schwantz! "Steady Dani"?

They are making fun of Rossi in Spain. I think.
