Bridgestone to end MotoGP tyre supply deal

oh dear

  Seems like MOTOGP is on the way out. The racing is boring, We could call it the  Mark Marquez show The CRT bikes are a joke. The new regs are going to be  Honda bias. And now they havnt even got a tyre supplier. What a joke

huw, you don't have what it takes

Besides I'm not baiting ahab, I'm openly mocking him. Funny how the sense of humour suddenly dries up when the boots on the other foot, don't you think?

Its an impossible ask to produce a tyre that works on every manufacturer with every riding style on every track type / surface under any condition EVERY race weekend.....They're on to a hiding to nothing really.

When things are ok, nobody really mentions the tyres.....but when they get it wrong, it;s all everyone talks about.

Prestige aside, who would really want to put themselves forward for this poisoned challis?
