Good article on Misano

I've never heard of this GP reporter but she sounds like she knows the sport and sounds somewhat informed.

Great find Pov. The only journalist with some 'balls' to say this:

"And then as a final note, the people who don’t get a round of applause. If you cheer when a rider crashes you are not welcome in this sport. If you boo when a rider is on the podium then you are not a fan of MotoGP because you clearly don’t understand. If your reason for not liking Marc Marquez or Jorge Lorenzo has anything to do with 2015 then lock yourself in a cupboard until you find some common sense. It’s not the first time, it probably won’t be the last but enough is enough. Two days after losing Luis Salom last year, Valentino and Marc shook hands. That was your cue to move on, get over it, put it behind you because there are more important things in life. So the next time a rider crashes, just use your energy to hope that they’re ok. When they’re on the podium, just be polite and applaud because you couldn’t do it. And at a circuit named after Marco Simoncelli and where Shoya Tomizawa lost his life, show some damn respect."

What a refreshing take on the race. Notice she led her synopsis of the event with its most defining performance, that being the masterpiece by Marquez. She didn't go 8 paragraphs deep to start the summary with the absence of Rossi. Nor did she give us the absurd and ridiculous explanation for Marc's last lap attack to win as some revenge on Rossi's fans. I swear I can't believe Krops wrote that, sat back and thought, yeah, I'll just publish this asinine analysis of Marc's motivation to risk life an limp because he wanted to prove a point to a bunch of nameless yellow clad idiots.

I don't know if I liked her writing style but I enjoyed the article, the analysis and the message at the end. I will definitely be looking for more to read from her in the coming races.

I do like her style , she tells the story in a way you can imagine what's going on. Couldn't find out much about her, but one of her social media accounts says something about being the daughter of a racer

It is a little ironic that the reporter with the balls to say it like it is is a chick. This must not be how she makes a living.

I think the main thing for me was lines like 'literally flying through the air.' Otherwise I totally agree it was an excellent right up.

I do believe that Marc is using the booing and cheering as extra motivation though. I agree that it had little to no influence on his decision to go for it at the end of the race though.
