Dani Pedrosa on pole after crash strewn Indianapolis qualifying

Dani Pedrosa claimed his third pole position of 2012 after an incident-packed qualifying session in Indianapolis this afternoon that was red flagged twice following huge crashes for Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden. A best lap of 1.38.813 secured the Repsol Honda rider pole in a dramatic session that ended with reigning world champion Stoner and factory Ducati rider Hayden undergoing treatment...

Jorge FTW...

Everytime when it's mano v mano against Dani. Nothing against Dani, I just think Jorge is stronger, mentally and physically.

This track is a disgrace

We all know each round the riders talk nice about whichever city/country/track the are racing at all of them except Indi. Every year the riders come here and they openly say its not their favourite and list the defects with the track. Even Stoner was brash enough to say there is not history racing this place as they don't use the ring. 

Then there are the Marshals, specially the idiots given to hold a stretcher. Lord, could not believe they treated hayden like a sack of potatoes. Is this normal in America or do they provide B grade care for relatively small events like motogp. Indi track is a fucking disgrace. 

These guys are the best and they have two options fall off hard or slow down. What a choice eh. Everyone has a go. 

I honestly don't know who is at fault here. Surely there mus be one of the bodies riders etc that should put their foot down and say they won't race here. We nearly lost 50 percent of the factory riders yesterday. 

I hope they don't come back to Indi even if it means missing out on the USofA.

No, a guilt trip would never work on you Wosi... much.

It's easy to stir when you have no prospects mate but then you go and fuck it up with the usual contradictions.

Here's to a decent race tomorrow, goodfknnight...  dickhead.

The crashes

Notice that Wosi and cartoon boy only pick on Stoner to dismantle his qualifying 'mistake'. Two other riders also made 'mistakes' and had a date with the stratosphere but only Stoner gets the usual criticism. Cal also crashed there in practise.

You're entitled to your theory Wosi but fact is neither you, me or anyone else on this forum is in a position to tell any of these riders how they should approach qualifying. Too fast too quick? How is that for you to say or judge? Trying to be clever and justify your comment by saying he shouldn't have gone for it when 4/10 down on his previous time won't wash. How do you know he couldn't have pulled that back or more over the rest of the lap. You don't. They learn nothing if they aren't pushing.

Why no comments on why Hayden or Spies crashed? Pressure?

You don't think there is something wrong with the surface in that area after 4 riders have crashed there? Rossi also, almost went the same as Hayden. You see Stoner slide all the time, year after year and he's never lost it like that, it just kept on going. Yes of course it could have been a mistake, but 4 riders at the same piece of track - plus the others from Moto1 and 3.

Pressure? A few minutes into qualifying after topping two of the practise sessions - not likely Wosi, but to state anything else wouldn't suit your agenda.

Of course it was mistakes from all 3 riders.
Why did Pedrosa or Lorenzo not crash?
They all have the same choice of tyres and although the track is far from the best it is up to each individual rider to work out the grip levels on different parts of the track.
It was a shame the accidents had to happen but it is all a part of motorcycle racing.

Maybe so Buell

But only one rider comes in for the criticism and usual accusations of buckling under pressure, when 4 crashed at the same part of the track.
