Tech 3 boss: No doubt Espargaro will be strong in MotoGP

Pol Espargaro has the talent and potential to be consistently battling for the top six in his rookie MotoGP world championship campaign in 2014. That’s the view of Monster Yamaha Tech 3 boss Herve Poncharal, who is preparing to work with the Spanish Moto2 world title contender next season, with Cal Crutchlow on his way to Ducati’s factory squad. Espargaro was signed...

 There was a bad one whilst we were a croft this weekend Pete.

Someone stalled at the start of the allcomers race and got plowed into by a rider who started last row.

His femur was smashed and femural artery ruptured, blood everywhere. Hope the poor bugger keeps his leg.

Massive praise for the Derby Phoenix club marshalls and the medic's ,it was a horrible thing to see, but they handled it brilliantly

Horrible !  Just goes to show how dangerous our sport is.  That sort of thing can happen any time any race.

Hope the poor guy recovers.

Cheers Saturn

 it also hits home the respect issue on here, those riders risk everything out there and we end up insulting them and every other over petty disagreements , plenty of us should hang our heads in shame ( i included myself in that)

And then theres

another bunch of us who just don`t bother with this site anymore, largely because of the ignorant, provocative postings by one in particular but a couple of others who over the last couple of years have ruined the whole thing. Multiple accounts and trolling.

My profile is there for anyone who has nothing better to do to have a look!  I`ve never slagged any rider. Ever. I`ve always respected all the guys out there. Quite different from Benny`s comments regarding the sad death of a rider in (I think) Russia. Very poor.
He`s needed a good banning for a long time. I`ve been on here since 2002 and have seen the regular posters vanish over the years. 
Its not right people like him can be allowed to stink up what is a good thing i.e. a few guys with a common interest exchanging views and a laugh.
Good riddance.

Cheeky

That's a shame mate - I seem to recall some decent posts from you not too long ago.  You've been on here a year longer than me I joined in 2003 with an 'open' profile - never did understand the need to hide your profile.

Explain to me three pack of KFC

just what these vastly different styles of Rosi's and Lorenzo's are? It's been an oft used, but never explained, term amongst the bed-wetters this season to excuse the world nr.6's performances. Both are ex junior class champs well versed and learned in the art of corner speed. A trait both have used with great effect during their respective M1 years. The M1 has always been a honey of a handler - comparative to the opposition that is - when Yamaha finally got around to building a decent engine for in (2004) it became a regular race winner.

Whilst the styles of the world nr.1 and nr.6 are not identical (no two are) they're as good as pretty damn as similar as you'll get. I put Bradl, and Iannone in that same smooth 'corner speed is king' boat too. More old fashioned U curve takers if you like.

On the other side of the coin you have the extreme Mr Marquez (in ways reminiscent of Doohan with his positioning on the bike as Richard mentions) who also has strong parallels with Stoner, and to a lesser degree Pedrosa. Spies too. More V cornering exponents.


That said  these V and U techniques are very generalised and pretty blurred nowdays. I note Lorenzo for instance has significantly improved his ability to pick the bike up quick off a corner and start driving the thing.

To say the world nr.1 and the world nr.6 are vastly different in their riding technique is fanboy tosh. Once more the reality cannot live up to the myth. Nr.6 a set-up genius? Ha, ha. There's a rookie out there leading the championship on a reputedly far more fickle to set-up machine making a mockery of nr.6 and his Aussie guru. Not to mention Lorenzo, or even  satellite M1 rider Crutchlow consistently showing more outright pace than the old stager.
