Hey n00b, how many MotoGP races and world championships have you won?
On the marquez crash:
In the heli cam shot, dani had a wiggle at the same spot as where mm broke traction, from what I saw
And I don't care what they say, that second yammy is jinxed.
Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't watched my recording of Moto2 yet so I just set the DVR to catch the Tuesday replay.
I am not sure, but I find his after race antics annoying.
He did what?... Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to him.
A classic Lorenzo performance there, and now firmly back in the title chase when combined with Marquez' getoff.
Also more of the "new" Pedrosa here...also being Mr. consistancy and a solid second place despite issues and still looking very strong for the Championship. Albeit lots of "what ifs" there...if Marquez kept the rubber side down, if Crutchlow had a couple more laps, if Rossi wasn't punted out...but that's racing!
Strikes me as a total douche-bag.
Lots of talent on a bike, but a douche-bag none the less.
I think whether it's racing motorcycles or bicycles one of the first rules of conduct is to not change your line radically when in a pack of riders and for the experienced rider to suspect that if you are not on the ideal racing line expect that someone else is there unless you can see otherwise. AB couldn't see where he wanted to be, assumed line to be empty, assumed wrong, and caused the crash.
Pedrosa had a little dig at Marquez in a radio interview: "Marquez' race was surprising after falling so hard on Friday, and he wasn't good on Saturday, but we know he copied a lot of our settings. They gave him all the information we got on Saturday to improve traction and I suppose that's easier."
I imagine he was a little irked that his 5-point loss to Lorenzo yesterday could easily have been 9 points because Marquez was on his tail most of the race. And at Qatar. And at CotA.
And I agree that while it was a racing incident, Bautista made a mistake. On the first lap, the assumption always has to be that, unless you're in last place, there are other riders surrounding you.
I just sent off a NastyGram to Speed/NascarTV.
I hope MotoGP goes to NBC like F1.
He knows what is going on, so yeah.
I think he did a good job at it too.
That would be nice! SPEED blows. But you'll still miss out on QP, which is now excellent to watch; even better than the racing sometimes. Plus all the other perks.
I ponied up for the MotoGP subscription back in 2006 when I was traveling for business. Never gave it up. Now with AppleTV to stream it from my iPad it is perfect on the big screen.
Once the current "Deal" is over with AT&T the cable will be gone along with Speed. I'll have high speed internet and be fine with that.
The Moto2 race had some punting as well. lots of bumping and sliding.
Don't you have access to ESPNPlay or ESPN3 over there?
I've never watched it (Canada). I have bought the MotoGP prescription for the last 4 years.
I used to do that, but then realized they would actually have to care about bikes to make any difference!
I gave up on speed and bought a MotoGP subscription - very happy now.
