See that Arrib has corrected but will throw my two bobs worth in anyway.

Both are in some way right, yet both are in some way wrong.

This started because Brookes posted a tongue in cheek image of a blue dress as a response to Aleix's tweet which was relayed to Brookes and then back to Aleix by a third party (the dress is basically saying - big girl).

Aleix then got into the 'I am faster in the wet than you will ever be in the dry as well as 'easy from your sofa' and then went on to his having lost Salom last year (2 weeks ago, Brookes was present when a rider passed at BSB but Aleix did not know or ignored it). It was during this exchange where Brookes' made the 'give people who want a go' comment.

Brookes' point about 'if you dont want to ride, then give someone a chance who does' is, for mine something that people call for all the time - 'how would rider X go' etc and is something that we praise the likes of West (as example) of trying to do, so for mine, no harm. Couple this with the sheer fact that Brookes' has had no opportunity at MotoGp (has done WSBK with BMW for a year) and yet Aleix has 1 podium in 8 seasons (2 in 200 GP races) and perhaps we start to see why some riders get frustrated when statements of 'I will not ride' are made.

Brookes' does race IoM and circuit as well as having a large dirt background so he well knows of danger and dangerous circuits (dare I say that some of the BSB rounds are held at circuits that could not and would not host internationally sanctioned events'.

For mine, with Bias hat on (hard to do as Brookes is very pro-Yellow masses), Aleix comes out of this far far worse as it shows how easy it is to get underneath his skin and perhaps he should start to concentrate on improving and bettering himself before worrying about another rider against whom he does not compete (Pol also took a snap at Stoner regarding CS' comments praising Kallio's ride).

I do however enjoy Aleix's comments regarding wet weather as in all of the series that Brookes has competed in, he is somewhat of a rain meister so I would bank on Brookes on equal machinery again Aleix.

Ah well, that all said, Aleix will remain due to passport whilst Brookes will go off to ride Suzuka, BSB, IoM and other road races

Correct me by all means Arrib or AntG, but did he not get a 130mph lap?

Sure did, some way to go before he's competing with Hutchy and Dunlop but it was only his 3rd year there. Be interesting to see how he'd go if he had a Beemer under him.

Hopefully the link works


All of which to me shows that the Asparagus brothers seem to have high opinions and cannot take criticism

I think you have it in a nutshell Gaz.

The asparagus brother has a legitimate safety concern.

He also over-rates himself, as he hasn't done all that much in motogp with signficant opportunities, which are probably more easily available to Spanish riders than those of other nationalities in the current motogp milieu, not that there is any evidence of which I am aware that Brookes would have done any better with similar opportunities.

You're attitude doesn't improve Mr Stoner, what bike have you ever developed from scratch...

Aw. I dunno, Maggie. Maybe you can tell us all about what rod is best to weld 7020 T6? Please help, Casey and I wanna be engine-ears. Maybe Uccio can help?
