Here is an interesting read that fits with the last few comments on this thread. I think the author has summed it up pretty nicely.

http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2016/Aug/160818breakingdownvr.htm



This is one of the best descriptions I have ever read on VR and his career/personality/racecraft, etc.

They also note one of his outstanding achievements were to arrive on the scene and make the then top order obsolete straight away. Very few guys did this before VR, and
certainly no-one did this since VR.

Ek het altyd gedink daar is fout met die Suzuki maar dit was al die tyd die jokkies by wie die fout was.
Hoop ons sien meer van hulle op die podium in die toekoms.
Op die pad bly hulle blitsig.

I beg to differ

Marquez won the 2013 and 2014 MotoGP World Championships.

Marquez became the first rider since Kenny Roberts in 1978 to accomplish the premier class title in his first season, and the youngest to win the title overall.

Does that not count as making the existing top order obsolete?

I obviously did not think this thing through properly. :-[ Of course Marquez also arrived with a bang.

Time will tell us whether it is to be a 9WC bang. :thumleft:

Three races in a row coming up starting this weekend.

And poor Pedrosa has broken his collar bone again in a huge accident in free practice 2.

Yes MM only did 2 in row while Rossi did 5 in a row. However the top order was Kenny Roberts Jr and Max Biaggi. KR jr was the world champion which shows what the competitive landscape looked like then.

Well done, Marc.

With oupa Valentino retiring soon[cannot see him continue racing for more than another year] Marc Marquez could actually top Rossi's 9 world titles.

He only needs 4 more MotoGP titles. :peepwall: But he could seriously do it, only 23 years old and a huge talent, and looking at the current competition,
it could be another Wayne Gardner run for an open try-line.

MM93 won this championship with superior consistency.  Well done.  He is growing up nicely.

Rossi signed for two years with Yamaha.  Expect to see him around for 2017 and 2018.

I wonder how far back we need to go in history to have a race where both factory Yamahas went down?
