Colin Edwards: CRT pace not dangerously slow

Colin Edwards has denied the gap in performance between the factory prototype machines and new CRT 1000cc projects will be dangerous in the 2012 MotoGP world championship. Several top riders like Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso have expressed concerns that the speed and lap time differential between factory bikes and CRT machines is too much and could lead to...

I think the universe can encompass both valentino rossi remaining a great rider +/- in the discussion as to who is the GOAT  and stoner becoming a great rider.

I was amused by bob's post though. I think the universe can also encompass both CRT being a response to the msma being intransigent/heading for a dead end and some of those currently supporting it being disaffected by valentino no longer being on a honda or a yamaha.

Anne Summers?

Sorry Wosi, your downtrodden blue blood humour and references are hard work and are a bit lost on a poor boy from the bush. Best if the references are kept to motorcycling, but I s'pose that will limit you somewhat?

Sober? Hard to tell.

Sorry, I ignored them cause I thought you'd posted on the wrong thread. I couldn't see the relevance, hence the 'Strongbow, pissed again' comment.

Who's in charge? Well, I don't know. DORNA, FIM, MSMA and the manufacturers in that order is my guess. Doesn't really matter as different aspects are handled by different parties. Probably need a specific issue for clearer answers and after the 'ducati 4kg' debacle, even your best guess could have merits!

Why crush the bike? That technology is almost priceless and it's pretty obvious really! Would I like one in my shed? Shit yes! But that's not how the companies see it and I can understand that. In reality, I doubt they're crushed, unless champions receive a papier mache version for their living room!?, but it's just a concept they perpetuate to make it all sound a little more 'precious'. Anyway, who would have the resources to crush all of Flo's rejected chassis from the last 18 months? Get real.
