Indianapolis MotoGP: Marquez continues domination with pole

Reigning world champion Marc Marquez got straight back into the swing of things after the summer break by taking pole position in the USA with a best time of 1'31.619. The Spaniard had a scare early on in the session when he was forced to run onto the grass at the extremely fast turn one, but recovered to set the fastest...

Dry like wet. For those who think without weight on the front you still have enough steering control.

Pathetic troll?

Looks like whatever you say someone with 500cc world titles is going to prove you a troll?

Let's SEE?

Rear BRAKE: From K.R to Marquez.
Foot pegs: From K.R to Marquez.
Back-wheel steering from K.R to Marquez, which in this case means FRONT END UNDER CONTROL.

CAN'T do that with a rear wheel biased weight distribution and Lorenzo set up can you?

saturn392 = Arrogantly using a pic of a guy who is doing EXACTLY the opposite of what you advertise.
Using the REAR brakes to get into tight corners, using the footrests to steer the bike, getting FASTER the day he was able to steer the bike on the gas.

I'm not the excitable 'Hello Dolly' magazine type as you appear to be Stig

I don't care about the sound of the voice, I care about the intelligence and quality of the words spoken. Spies most certainly was the best ex-racer I've heard in the commentary box.

You and Quasimoto would've loved Darryl Eastlake on Aussie Channel Ten - a hyperbole laden screaming fool if ever there was one.

And Quasi still thinks it's chassis geometry that saved Pol?! Yeah Yamaha designed it just to be able to save those types of moments in that manner. Ha, ha, ha. Tool.

Most Ironic quote of the day

''Most ignorant loudest mouth.''

I never mentioned any names in my post but if you recognise yourself and the cap fits DeG then by all means wear it.

Over on twitter Crutchlow has said that there is a paddock rumour that Camier will sign an contract in MotoGp on a 'good' bike.

Food for thought .... he rode for Aprillia in WSB and Aprillia are returning to MotoGp 2015. (only a thought)

 Spies would make a tremendous commentator indeed. Loved it every time he was commenting with Emmett and Harris, he's a very smart guy.

ALL racers from club level up have been weighting the footpegs to control / manoeuvre the motorcycle since time immemorial.

Some past world champions used the rear brake, other didn't. Obviously with the two strokes of negligible engine braking the rear could be used to some degree. It's use is more prevalent now in the modern era because of the sophisticated slipper clutch systems all these machines use. You couldn't have rear brake finesse with a big bore four stroke and heavy engine braking in the days of yore. The risk of a rear wheel lock up with the rear off the ground was simply too great with the automatic lose of control that brings to a heavy high momentum machine.

Racers move with the times whilst road riders like Quasi stay firmly stuck in 1979.

Now Willie, try not falling into the trap..

 ..of acting like your name-sake..

 

You're a lovely fella, but that really was a first grade post with little reality attached to it. Show me some recent quotes from Crutchlow where he's complaining about the lack of equipment he has, whilst bearing in mind he DOES actually have a lesser bike than Iannone. Cause for complaint in my eyes - but have we heard any moaning from Cal?..

 

They all complain at some point in their careers regarding what everyone else has ( that's racing ) - just look at Lorenzo at the start of the year for proof of that. You're being led by the nay-sayers and the armchair warriors and not by the people that apparently know the score. You talk about Andy being wanted by all the manufacturer's - but, can't that be said about Cal too? Yamaha, Ducati, Suzuki and now HRC. Not good enough fo ya?

 

The jealousy comes from the people who feel Crutchlow has no merit in the big leagues - that's cool, totally up to them. They're wrong of course and quite possibly a bit stupid.

 

Still, can't win 'em all.
