Everyone watched the race?

I notice all racers either use Bridgestone or Michelin, and racers in the top 8 all have bridgestone, so does that mean bridgestone > michelin?

In this one straightaway, the Honda passed the Kawasaki easily, is Kawasaki really that weak of a bike? or is it just the racer

Re: Woohoo, another victory for Valentino Rossi!!

The tire wart has only really been a factor this year and last year. Currently Bridgestone seems to have the advantage, but it varies from track to track. At some tracks Michelin has the top 10, at others it's Bridgestone.

Yes, the Kawasakis are generally down on power in MotoGP.

Re: Woohoo, another victory for Valentino Rossi!!

Yeah nice spoiler... I already watched it but maybe others didn't.


The Kawi has had some work done to it as you can see its a better bike and not in 17th with west anymore. The reason west got passed is because nakano got a drag off of him in his slip stream and passed him easily, any bike will pass the other if its close enough to grab a drag off of it so its not a matter of the Kawasaki is slow

michelin's had good results early on this season it just happens that this track and laguna sucked dick for Michelin riders

Re: Woohoo, another victory for Valentino Rossi!!

I am just glad to see Rossi put such a large points lead up. You could tell Stoner was not going to let Rossi get close enough to battle. Rossi kept a medium tire on the rear for a late battle with Stoner. Luckily Rossi was able to apply a couple tenths of a second each lap to let Stoner know he needed keep pushing harder to keep him away. That pressure is what caused Stoner to crash out on the new Brno track surface. At that point I just jumped up and screamed cause I knew Rossi had it in the bag. In the last two seasons it seemed Rossi began to struggle with his M1 and the Michelin tires. Things appear to be in great order this season with the new Bridgestone shoden M1. The Doctor is back in surgery baby!!!!

Next time you may want to put spoiler alert instead of the title of who won the race. Some people record it and watch it later. Glad I watched it before coming to the boards.

Re: Woohoo, another victory for Valentino Rossi!!

You're lucky I already watched the race. I actually posted the results in the RACE section with the title "SPOILER ALERT". But I'd be cussing if I hadn't seen the race and you spoiled the ending.

Well there ya go...Matt's got the answer!

It's the interwebz, guys...peoples are gonna do this. Don't take it personally...just avoid avenues that might lead to spoilers and life'll be dandy!

:D
