Bridgestone, to their credit, is promising to do a better job and to provide more choices. Let's hope.
Only 2 - 4 riders currently have the "best" motorcycle at the moment no?

No, tire testing at Indy already scheduled for 2014.

Repsol getting ahead of themselves. Might have been classier if they had waited until he'd actually won the championship before publishing it....

That didn´t take long. I was wondering ,what the Repsol team might screw up this weekend.

What are the odds that Jorge wins, Vale second, Dani third, and Jorge takes the title at Valencia? Does Repsol issue the poster with a black X over MM?

Very presumptuous. I would love to see a Marquez DNF and Jorge win just for the "egg on face" factor here!

To be fair thought Krop, is it Repsol or the three wise men that surrounded Marquez at the island and so stuffed up that have released this?

OK....

Did I miss this or???

I subscribe to MotoGP.com but did not see anything about the CS, Gardner and Doohan "lap of honor".

Is there any video anywhere?

Not sure I get the XY reference (pretty sure that convention in motorsports is +x = left, +y = up and +z = forward), but in any case both vehicles can for sure have mega tire loads in all directions. The motorcycle tire obviously has to deal with loads in more orientations, but the lateral loading condition of a motorcycle isn't actually all that different from the car, its just that the contact patch is on the "other side" of the tire...on the car its close to to the outside sidewall, on the bike its close to the inside sidewall. The carcass is is still getting 'pulled' in the same direction, and there's still thrust/braking/gravity loads.

For sure the shoe sized contact patches of the car has nothing on the wow-factor of the bike's credit card sized patches...but when you compare accelerations the pendulum swings the other way. F1 cars max over 5 G's in braking and corneing! And have aero loads that can quadruple the car's mass!

I'll have to dig out Foale to see if he has anything interesting (and comprehensible) to say on the subject. Its been a while...He gives me head-hurtey.

Not at all. Its just the catalyst to an interesting discussion. Is it that big of a deal as long as it doesn't devolve into two guys just trying to win the internet?

They printed a few copies for Puig, they weren't supposed to get out to the public.

Sadly fitting if true. Still think he could win a championship or two somewhere.

Remarkably similar to Toseland. Great first season then it fell apart and had to retire due to injury. Motogp is tough.
