Motopg.com suggesting Brad could be the rider of the week end. Nice read if you are a Binder fan

Nice plug - a pity the commentators essentially forgot to mention him after he fell to the back of the field and no footage of his overshoot. That said I guess they did not mention AM even once  :imaposer:

All they showed was MM fighting back, hardly anything at the front or back. I really wished BB could have hung on in 7th or improve. Would have done wonders for his head.

They must sommer give his bike to Johann Zarco. He is the one guy I feel could have done much better in his career.

Funny enough, the talk around the paddock is that BB is the one guy who can/would ride HRC bike aggressively enough to get the best out of it...

My thoughts from last year.  BB on a Honda...  jeez

To reiterate, MM is the best rider by a long shot I saw in my lifetime.  He is just in a different league altogether.  BB in my mind is the nearest in style to him, maybe slightly less raw talent but with a more calculating mind.  Both can lead from the start and set the pace, both can dogfight and be aggressive, both can chase through the pack.

You reiterate wrong. Valentino was in a different league altogether. Valentino dusted off heroes like Stoner before breakfast, and he did this while crashing far less than MM.

Remember that, while MM is undeniably fast, every one of the much rejoiced front end saves is actually a front end lost to start with.

Tonight at 19h30 Rob from Ridefast will be interviewing Brad on their facebook page. I have watched their previous interviews with him and what he has to say is very interesting.

Danie I'm sure you would have heaped much more praise on old MM if he rode a Yamaha  >:D
Rossi's biggest mistake was going to Ducati, it was a setback for him, if he stayed at Honda or Yamaha he would have has another title or two me thinks.

"An operation on Marc Márquez’s fractured arm has been completed successfully, allowing the eight-time champion to target a return to the track for the third MotoGP round of the season in Brno.

Honda announced that the surgery, which involved fixing a titanium plate to the rider’s right humerus, is complete and that there was no damage to his radial nerve, which controls wrist and finger movement.

Ahead of the operation, MotoGP’s traumatology specialist, Dr Xavier Mir, who is treating Márquez, said that the rider could be back in action in time for the Czech race on 9 August if there was no nerve damage."

 :thumleft: :thumleft: I completely agree, Ducati ruined Rossi.

I have a lot of praise for MM. It's just his losing the front wheel all the time that's becoming a bit stupid. Sort the problem out. Last Sunday's front wheel save cost him too dearly.

Ducati ruined Rossi.

Weird that some riders gel with a Ducatti and others don't at all.
Stoner gelled for sure, pity he stopped too soon. :(

There you go .................what did I say a few pages back?

All he has to do is win at Brno to prove me a true visionary ................  :biggrin:

true that....
Technology, medicine and science have improved drastically too. Not too mention the sport.
Gone are the days when you had a drinking night out with your buds before a race, and dragged on a  Gauloises on the starting grid.
The characters are all gone, replaced with these aliens... :ricky:
I will never use the phrase "Humor me" again, seeing what can happen to a humerus....

So if Marques comes back very soon he will be riding without his humerus having healed completely. It takes many weeks for bone to regrow. Unless you're on some wonder drug or something. Anyway, so he'll be depending on the plates and pins to hold things together and in place. All good and well, you get full functionality.

But another fall in his return race is going to be way more catastrophic. Well, another one that involves his humerus, at least.

This i a big reasonwhy they are seen to "heal" quicker than other people, the fact that they can ride with non-healed bones, thus carrying the risk.

A world champion canoeist or wrestler do not have that option.

Rossi’s biggest mistake is not knowing when to quit

Danie, Rossi raced Biaggi, MM raced Rossi. Enough said.  MM is in a class no one else is or was in during the past 30-40 years.
