Remy Gardner
 
This kid is really exciting. A much more aggressive character than his dad. Canít wait to see more of him.

Theo March 31st, 2019 02:07 PM

Yes he is, but some of his antics are very chancy.
I was pleased to see Fenati came nowhere, wonder if any other riders are bitching about him?

His Dad was a pretty aggressive character in his prime. Grumpy bloke.

His dad basically had to be crazy to ride the brutal HRC 500 of his day the way he did. Lawson and Erv Kanemoto somewhat tamed the thing, with which Eddie’s All time great skill as a rider doubtless helped, Mick Doohan with advice from Eddie eventually managed to do so while still being maimed by the thing, Wayne just rode the bucking bronco. I can remember him having a massive tank slapper, somehow staying on the bike, then continuing as though nothing had happened.

Chancy - but fair. I've yet to hear of any riders filing complaints against him. He won't be able to get away with that stuff (at least not so often) when he moves up to MotoGp. I think he'll quickly surpass Miller who seems a bit of a dunce.

Yeah I think he'll outshine Miller, but Millers problem was being promoted to early and forced onto a crap bike.
When you look at the gear manufacturers are giving the satellite teams now, would Miller be the same?

Seems to be pretty fast on an actual Ducati factory bike, faster than their 2nd factory rider all of the most recent race weekend anyway. He was fast at Qatar as well, and I doubt his intellect or lack thereof had much to do with his seat coming loose early in that race. He also has won 1 more motogp race than many, admittedly a wet race, but Dovi similarly had only one win in a wet race for longer than the first few years of his premier class career on much better equipment.

In retrospect he would have been better spending time in moto 2 given how poor the second string Honda satellite bikes were during his tenure as a Honda motogp rider.

lol, i must have slipped of to a parallel universe where Wayne wasn't an aggressive rider and Jack is a dunce.

Gardiner Sr. was very competitive - but he wasn't trading paint every other lap.

As far as Miller's concerned - I stand by my call. The guy is dumb as a box of rocks.

Hmm, Jack is dumb and you talk of a different Gardner ............... :p

Dunce or not, Jack has not had a full factory ride yet has more race wins than many in the top class.

Let us not forget that he got his first win before Crutchlow, Vinales and others riding far better equipment.

Plus of course, dunce or not, he is making the money and living the dream that us armchair legends (of our own mind) can only dream

As for Wayne Gardner Not trading paint, well he was super aggressive in his day and would not have thought twice of running a rider out to the line. Fierce, tough and brutal are all words that could describe him .............................. or as a friend of mine who knows him personally constantly says 'Wayne is the biggest toughest prick to ever race in Australia, cars or bikes' .
