British MotoGP: Lorenzo extends championship lead with win

Factory Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo extended his lead at the top of the championship with a dominant win at Silverstone today. Lorenzo got off to a slow start, as team-mate Ben Spies took to the lead ahead of Stoner and pole sitter Alvaro Bautista. It wasn't until lap seven that Lorenzo started to make his way to the front. Lorenzo had a...

Dont know where you get your info from but i think you could be right on all counts, It should make for an intresting season next year if it does. 

most punters are saying the yamaha is the best bike but to me with Lorenzo riding it its the best rider/bike combo.. i still think the Honda is a better motorcycle but Stoner cant manage his tyres. I would still like to see jonathan Rea on a works Honda Rather than Marquez. To me he rides very mutch like Lorenzo. very smooth and deceptivly fast

re: OH BOY - MORON CITY (1)

Hi, I'm the intellectually-challenged Zombie Moron you were speaking of. Can you show me where Crutchlow referred to an R1?, other than the author's headline? In this interview Cal uses the words "road bike", not R1.

If Cal did say R1, why was it edited out of the interview and replaced with "road bike"? If Cal said R1 in a different interview, why use that quote to headline this piece?

You see, "road bike" could mean a lot of things on two wheels and the point is well made. But when the author changes "road bike" to "R1" it becomes very specific and thus the comment becomes loaded. It changes the dinamic of the quote. He gave it a little tweak to help get your attention. Did you notice? Do you care? Changing words spoken by others and claiming it's still a quote is not whimsical, it's journalistic blaspheme.

It's not a lack of understanding nuance, but a highly tuned ear for it that's causing my concern with this, and I noticed a lot of people fell right into line and didn't think twice about it.

Good night aquarius. Sleep well. - or -

If you choose, wake up. It's all around you.

British MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow ‘I’d be faster on an R1�
Matthew Birt, 15 June 2012 22:14

Cal Crutchlow reckons he could have lapped the Silverstone track today faster on a production Yamaha R1 machine than his prototype YZR-M1 MotoGP bike after the British rider experienced a tough start to his home race at the Northamptonshire track.

Hope this clears things up. (unless it's an authors headline)

riders-teams

Bradders deal is done and dusted, the contract signed and the place taken......so 100% defo

Cal has expressed interest in going to ducati personally.....

Marquez is already sponsored by repsol....along with many smaller sponsors that will not tolerate Marquez

taking a year out to go to a satelite team, so this is why honda are forcing through the rookie rule, or the scrapping of it.

I was chatting with someone 'in the motogp loop' and they told me the above may happen....

And yeah its not always how good you are it's what you bring to the table...

Marquez brings many sponsors....VR sells bikes and merchandise....so Yam or gresini would be glad of the income....
