Check out Brno last year. Dani Pedrosa can fight for victory, if needed. And JLo used to make some moves a lot like Marquez (good AND bad!) in the smaller classes. Now he's mr. Smooth, because it's fast on these bikes. But he won't tolerate it, if a rookie tries to spank him again, true he got a bit caught out in Jerez, but will be better prepared next time.

You guys need to lighten up! There MIGHT be one or two people here that legitimately hate on the C'apn for 06, and mostly--like the stoner jabs--because others on the Internet get all bent. The rest of the peeps don't care, and/or have plenty of other reasons to dislike Pedro. Its all good man, its just entertainment. Let it go, get over it, or employ whatever other cliche you deem necessary to move on.

I have to think we just joke about it these days. There's no seriousness attached, at least with me.
Riders make mistakes all the time.

Think of it this way: its the same joke every week for six years. Its gets old and lost any relevance a long time ago.

Crutchlow comes up with fresh jokes every week on Twitter. How about running those into the ground for a change?

Point taken, it was an offhand remark, but like Dogboy and others said, after 6 years it's time to move on.

One major difference between the '06 DP shunt, the old JL shunt, and MMs move was that both those others occured during corner entry, while the MM contact was mid turn. MM was even during turn in with JL, but inside, effectively putting him ahead already. JL still committed to an outside line through the corner in parallel with MM, not a good plan IMHO!

Marquez has certainly added some spice into this championship. I'm also glad that so far he's been more clean than was maybe expected (the JLo pass was a bit in the 'gray area', but last lap last corner, you see an opening, you go for it - I'm more surprised JLo screwed up his tactics there, but it happens).

Why would you make the assumption that I don't give Dani credit? I am highly complimentary of his riding. I don't think I am a detractor of his in any way.

I am not even a big Marquez fan. I am highly impressed by his talent, but he is far from one of my favorites.

Wasn't sure where to ask this question. I just started watching MotoGP last year and now I love it. But I don't have any back ground in racing. So I am not sure of why they do certain things. Generally I can read up on it. But I can't find an answer to this one.

I see some of the rider when entering a corner flair the inside knee in and out a couple of times. What is the purpose of that? For clarification I am not talking about sticking the knee out and leaving it out around the corner or sticking the leg out like Rossi. This is where they just flair the knee out and back in a couple of times when braking for the corner.

A few riders do this while changing gear. If it's that, it's always the left knee which they move.

Yes, that makes sense. Thanks.

Or sometimes they just take advantage of the opportunity while braking to air the lads out . . .
