Valentino Rossi to race on with new chassis

It may only offer a minimal gain in feeling on corner entry, but Valentino Rossi will continue to race a new Yamaha chassis he rode to a brilliant second place in Jerez last Sunday.Rossi spent more time on the new YZR-M1 frame on his way to finishing third quickest in a one-day post race test session at the Jerez track...

The fact is in the UK, bikes are seen as dangerous by the majority of doo gooders. Most sleepy cage drivers hate them too. So sponsorship for up and coming riders is going to be few and far between for UK riders. There's little passion for bikes here in the UK in comparison to Spain.

You must be one of the very few people who believe that.(apart from nostro)
The differences may be small but speak to anyone that has knowledge of Moto GP and they will tell you the Honda has an advantage.

I tend to agree on the perception of bikers, especially when one have worked as courrier.

But i have to add something, been biking in France, Holland and the UK, the British riders i know are among the best of them, in the wet most of them are safe and fast as well, i learned a lot both on road and track in Britain.

If you guys ask yourself why the Spanish dominates moto gp (after the Americans and Australians), it's simple, they have the "right" culture, it's all about throttle control, in particular dirt-track styles. Read this:

www.cycleworld.com/2014/01/10/dirt-track-training-with-kenny-roberts-and-influence-on-top-level-grand-prix-racing/

CH987: You had some very potent 500 cc riders since Sheene, given better circumstances a guy like Niall Mackenzie could have developed into a champion.

British riders didn't/don't always have the support of the factories the way the Americans or Australian had.

Smith has a lot of potential.

Rossi on a Honda

Rossi, Want a CHALLENGE?... what about joining Honda next year and battling Marquez in equal terms....:)))). It would be the best thing for us fans and for the championship.

Hi, the difference is small, so small as to be almost negligible when you see the level of performance Marquez has raised the barr to. He has half a second to spare when pushed, this is significant when you consider Lorenzo and Pedrosa's performance comparative to each other is relatively unchanged. Marquez like Rossi at his peak all those years ago is good enough to make the rest look average, doesn't matter which of the two best bikes you put him on.

 Hurdyfurdy, Crutchlow has grown as a gp rider on Lorenzo's style M1: break early and smoothly carry lot of corner speed. Lorenzo doesn't ride the same this year, on the same bike, with just slightly different tyres. You can imagine Cal on a Ducati which is the far opposite of the (once) fast flowing Yam. I think Yam priviledged Rossi over Jorge for this year, and Vale is indeed doing good and better so far. Then again Lorenzo deserves some chassis and tyre change for him to try to challenge the Hondas.
