Minimum weight limit being considered for Moto2

A minimum weight limit for the Moto2 world championship is currently under discussion in a move that could significantly reduce the disadvantage heavier riders like British star Scott Redding currently have to contend with. The entire Moto2 field were individually weighed in full riding kit including helmet during last weekend’s Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island. It was seen as the first...

Get them Fat Brits

the hell out of Racing. Thats all. You had World Champions who had height and weight as similar to him and no one complained. The Brits can't win ..... hmmmm then there is something that has to be wrong. Yep it is....Step on the fucking gas and try to go faster. What are young lads between the age of 17 to 20 themselves like the British gluttons.

Guys that raced such as Simoncelli, Iannone, Rossi, Hayden, Spies have all won races in Motogp. What's stopping these no talented fat fucking Brits from winning. Pretty soon Motogp is going to have to follow soon.

If its not the passport shit, it's now the weight shit, next up is the height.

Fat club

This world championship series is becoming more detached from reality. You don't get this poncing in the Armed Forces FFS. An over weight trooper won't get light duty in the kitchens, no they will be told "Get up the hill you fat fuck". Whatever next, lard asses bullying for a ride? I work out and don't over eat and I do this for peace of mind. I do two 8 mile runs and 1 swim session each week + MTB on Sunday, whats so hard about that? Adding ballast to a race bike is a black art at the best of times but adding 30kg??? The winningest riders (you know, the ones in good shape) should strike, its plain dangerous.

Horse racing

Could this work in MotoGp to achieve closer racing ? :-

''Weight is used to handicap a horses chance of winning. The more successful the horse, the more weight it carries and the less successful it should be in future races. At the other end of the scale poor horses are allowed to carry less weight and should thus be able to compete on a more level playing field.''

It's not an opinion - I'm just asking a question.
