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...

Ah, the Rev's got 'ewe' out of the box today as he, but he still hasn't taken that land mine off your head.

Have you had a good weekend, snatching handbags and frightening the kids, in the shopping centre. I heard you've been with MissStiggy glazing your hambone again, Iv'e told 'ewe' before Rev, don't mix your meats, and stay off the baaaaarbiturates.

Hey corn fritter

Let's apply some of your random statistical analysis shall we? So (according to you) Scott has approximately 25% more bone mass than Marc, yet Marc has 186% of Scott's points haul to date. Wow those light bones are fast. (Un?)realistically speaking then Redding would need to lose 64kg to stand a chance of competing with Marquez at Valencia on an equal footing - you know where they both have a, oh I don't know, let's say 80% chance of winning. I'm not quite sure that's how you work your figures, I suspect I'm missing a random generator or two. Probably the ones you pluck directly from your arse.

Gosh, you coke sniffing daddy, I didn't realise Scott was a works Honda rider, heading for MotoGP next year. But we've not taken into account the possible winner at Valencia Moto2 class, I believe, Sir Sadly Smith, will take the title of 'the best underachiever in Moto2', ever to be given a 2 year deal in MotoGp, so  we'll apply the % game.

As Smith has a 80% smaller brain and at least 5kg less guts, and absolutely no balls whatsoever, with that weight advantage over Scott, I'd say he's about the same weight as Marquez, yet he has 0% chance of winning it, and anything else in the next two years. Now that will be a 100% no win forecast.

Now you've only got a week, for that to come true, and after MotoGP testing, if I were you I would get your new account ready to re-appear on this forum, and you'll only have a 90% chance of being found out, and a 100% chance of looking like the drug addicted dipshit you really are.  .

Not yours, Calfanny

nor: Rev/Calfanny/Benny/Twpsyn/binthere/MissStiggy and all your other mutant playmate accounts, oh, and of course BCB, and I hope all other members  check their profiles on MCN and are aware of you adding some of  them to your friends list, unless they wish to be associated with the psycho sheepshagger.

Reading also a weak point

over and above mathematics I see our  tasteless bowl of cornflakes. I don't blame the education system, your comprehension issues run far deeper than that. I was talking Valencia, the one remaining race in which both Marquez and Redding will compete.

Let's try and simplify things for you shall we. Hypothetically let us imagine just a two horse race between Rossi and Lorenzo for the 2013 title, no other competitors. Now we shall stick with your figure of Rossi having an 80% chance of the title; even though in your logic his odds may shorten even more given he only has to beat Lorenzo in this scenario. What percentage chance does that leave Lorenzo of winning the title?

Guesswork

Using the guessability factor Nostro - I would say  Lorenzo 35% chance - Pedrosa 30% chance - Rossi 25% chance - Marquez 10% chance.
