Well there you go, shows how little I know about the GP - I didn't suspect it was an old quote.

Of course they will - they'll be inside their truck during the race!

Well, maybe H-D and Indian , might be a long shot.

Bridgestone keeps the party line. From their PR after last weekend:

Quote:
Front tyre selection at Silverstone is always a juggling act, and I believe we got the balance right but there is no denying that in cool conditions, parts of the Silverstone circuit will always be difficult for riders to manage
Yup, once again; the riders are fuck ups.

Bridgestone has a monopoly on tire supply but that came with a price cap. Who would expect anything different than this outcome? If you want to see improvement, open the rules up to tire competition. But since that probably won't happen; it is was it is. Which is just sad commentary about the top flight motorcycle racing series in the world. So instead, riders will wad up bikes, teams will design & build new chassis and develop new brakes and new fork bits, all to compensate for the cheap tires. It all makes perfect financial sense!

If we didn't have a spec tire in the series, there's no telling what teams might develop!

That reminds me of the old saying, "unattended children will be served espresso and given a puppy."


In this case, a six pack of Monster and a mini bike.
