Race direction was pointing Marquez to the side of the track (did any of you actually watch the race), multiple crew members on the pit wall heard two stewards telling Marquez to go to pit lane.

Cheers, Rob.

"Fake news" ......

Will that do?
I almost crashed on a track day at Cadwell back in the 80's....ran onto the wet grass at Park but kept it upright and rejoined...i reckon i could teach that tosser Rossi a thing or two....

Only about riding for ridings and racings sake. Not about how to go senile and base your racing on conocted manipulative lies to discredit someone you have obsessive hatred for.

Some people don't understand British humour...please note this story is 100% true although the cameras weren't there to record it unfortunately.

Barry was referring to Rossi's obsessive hatred of MM methinks.

What Arrabbiata and Barry said. Perhaps they should put you in charge of the next Tour de France, given that is a race involving wheeled conveyances. "Fake news" is actually the cry of a certain American president when he doesn't have an argument, and stands on his self-assessed/self-conferred authority, and not very arguably applies more to you than those you dispute. If you want to talk "fake news" in GP bike racing, Uccio deciding that MM rode at PI 2015 to hamper Rossi, despite winning the race and taking 5 points away from Lorenzo, is a rather better example imo.

As others have said, Jumkie rather eloquently, RD were making up the rules for the start of the recent race as they went along, something for which they have considerable recent form, cf PI 2013 where, contrary to your thesis about his undue influence on RD, MM was actually black flagged for flouting a rule literally made up 5 minutes before the race, which could have cost him the title if he had crashed out of the final race at Valencia that year.


I don't dispute that they have let MM get away with things, particularly in moto 2; when he was a moto 2 rider Jumkie actually coined the term "Murder Marc" to apply to him with general agreement, including from me. Arguing that RD has pandered to him because of a Spanish conspiracy or whatever while conveniently ignoring close on 2 decades of pandering to Rossi is where you and others come unstuck, cart racing maven though you may be.

I was more thinking a guy gets on here and titles a thread " marquez banned for 2 races".


But lets face it with rossi going so poorly on track. We are going to see a lot more "fake news" as he attempts to appear, to the yellow zombies, to be a contender.
